“Fantastic Choice”
Reviewed 30 August 2014

This restaurant was rated #1 on Trip Advisor at the time and did not disappoint. We arrived before the rush and chose to sit on the screened in porch, which had a great view of the inlet. We had the Bam Bam Shrimp and Blue Crab Fondue appetizers, both of which were lick the dish delicious. For dinner, my husband had the Hot Fish platter, my daughters had the Crab Cakes and Fish & Chips and I had the Crab Stuffed Shrimp. Each meal was wonderful and the sides, especially the spinach and grilled veggies were great. Our waiter, Rion, was attentive, knowledgeable, and helpful. The service was excellent; timely without being rushed. We will definitely go back here on our next trip to SC.

“Great dinner”
Reviewed 30 August 2014 via mobile

We found this restaurant on Trip Advisor, not having heard of it before. We went on a Thursday night and had no wait at all. Great service - friendly and helpful though all of our questions. We had shrimp and chicken and grouper. The grouper francaise was really incredible! So fresh, as was all of it Even the chicken was wonderful - the green beans with bacon were great as well as one of the sides.

We would come back here next year!

“Try the lobster pot pie”
Reviewed 29 August 2014

I was expecting something a little younger, hipper because of the name of the restaurant, but this is definitely a family place with an older client base. The menu was typical of most area seafood places. We had the lobster pot pie and found it tasty. Could have had a little more sizeable pieces of lobster but dinner was served quickly and piping hot. The restaurant is located in an area called the Marsh Walk so you can take a little stroll after dinner. The restaurant next door had a band playing which was fun to listen to as walking along the boardwalk.

Thank you for your review! We are so glad you enjoyed one of our top selling entrees! I believe the restaurant next door in which you referred to is our Gazebo, where we have bands play nightly, it is a lot of fun out there! We hope to see you again very soon!

“Food was great!Waitress was courteous but,as my wife said,she was only nice because it might affect her tip!”
Reviewed 28 August 2014 via mobile

This place came recommended and the quality of the food was Great!My wife had flounder and I had the seafood platter and we both thought that the flounder was the best that we had ever tasted.Everything on my platter was also very good.The hush puppies were nothing special and the margarine was land of lakes(real butter would be much better).
The atmosphere is good but the atmosphere at other restaurants along the marsh walk are better.
The hostess was very friendly but our waitress seemed to just doing what she had to to do her job.She was not unfriendly but my wife's order was wrong and one item asked for never made it.
The bottom line is that the food was delicious!

Thank you for your review! We are glad to hear you enjoyed all of your food, but are so sorry your service and our atmosphere was not up to the standards we strive to adhere to. We pride ourselves on excellent food as well as service and atmosphere- we truly hope you will give us another try to excel in all three of those!
