“excellent service, excellent food”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

The service was very personable. Our waitress made recomendations about regional specialties to try. My husband had the shrimp and grits, which was a rather large portion. He managed to eat it all! The presentation was great. The location is rather odd, but quaint.

“Go for lunch to avoid a wait”
Reviewed 13 June 2014 via mobile

We tried to go for dinner but found a long wait. We went back the next day and had no wait for a party of 8. The food was amazing! I am a southerner transplanted north, so it was a real treat for me.

“Nothing too exciting”
Reviewed 12 June 2014 via mobile

Menu was so-so. Not a lot of seafood selections. 3 out of 4 of our meals were really good. The roasted chicken was super dry and the baked mac-n-cheese was extremely flavorless. They have a very nice outdoor seating area and had live music during our visit. Wait time for food to arrive was horrible - even after the crowd thinned out.

“In and out”
Reviewed 11 June 2014 via mobile

Arrived fifteen minutes before door opened. Seated five minutes after door opened. Placed order right away. Food perfect. Was asked if food was perfect three times by three different people. Out the door one hour after opening time. Moral of the story is Plan ahead and if you have a Problem let them know and they will fix it. Don't wait to report a problem on Trip Advisor.6/11/14

“Sat in our seats for 1.25 hours before our food was served, not sure any food is worth that long of a wait.”
Reviewed 10 June 2014 via mobile

1.25 hr wait. Food was great. Building was overwhelmingly hot. Go back again? It will be a long while

LowcountryBackyard, Owner at A Lowcountry Backyard, responded to this review, 11 June 2014
I like to be fair and honest, so please accept our apologies. Due to customer demand, we have increased our seating slightly. We have a 5x8 foot kitchen and the extra seating has put an additional strain that periodically causes some food delays. We are taking steps to deal with that and hope you will try us again, as we are working hard to meet customer demands while still putting out quality food in a timely fashion. Thanks for joining us and taking the time to write a review. I am glad that you found the food to be great though.
