Everything here was beyond our expectations and the sunset view was equally amazing. Get a table by a window, it's worth the wait.

“Good food, good service ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

Visited Morgan Creek twice. First time was with a group of 15. Server did a super job. Loved the fried oysters, calamari, duck/scallops dish. The she crab soup, tilapia with goat cheese were just ok. Hubby went for lunch on top deck. Loved the burger. Would recommend for atmosphere. Nice view.

“The Best Oysters and Pecan Pie!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

We had a big group of around 25 and wanted to find a place that would allow reservations to help simplify going out to eat our last night on vacation. We were staying at Isle of Palms and discovered this restaurant which did allow reservations. We were seated at 2 long tables so I'll only review our table's experience since the other table had some serving issues. I started out with some Charleston She Crab soup that was delicious! For my entree I had Sunflower Crusted Tilapia and my husband had the Fresh Seafood Platter with fried shrimp and oysters and broiled scallops. We enjoyed both entrees, but the fried oysters were the best that I think that we've ever had. To finish off the night we got the Southern Comfort Pecan Pie which tasted so yummy! The restaurant sits on the inlet so the views out the window was beautiful. I really enjoyed my dinner here. As a side note, there is actually 2 different restaurants here. We ate at the inside section. They have another upstairs and outside which is more casual and the menu items are less expensive.

“Alright Food, Good Location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

Ate here first afternoon we arrived, while waiting for condo to be ready. The food was ok, not a ton of flavor and the fish wasn't all that great. Good location though and nice way to begin the week.

“Frequent visitor and a Local, but this place disappoints so frequently ....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

Location, location, location ...............

Almost perfect - it overlooks the Inter-Coastal, Morgan Creek Marina with its assortment of Sailies, Yachts, Swanky Gin-Palaces, Skiffs etc and a fabulous array of expert and Buffoon boaters. This a great people watching spot, as well as observation deck for boating cock-ups. Sunsets down the Inter-Coastal can be superb.

However, .............

Food - very variable and highly Chef dependent (it appears).

Service - also variable.

Availability of cold beer (Draught anyway) - none for months.

Upstairs is good for the View (Sunset), but one has to accept plastic cups and that frying food as the pervasive smell and noise.

Result - we use it occasionally for Sundowners etc, but little more.

CLOSED - Mondays.
