“Awesome crabs”
Reviewed 30 December 2013 via mobile

Upon my tours to the beautiful Low Country of South Carolina, I make a point to stop at Ravenel seafood.. I usually visit once a year... pick up a dozen of delicious garlic blue crab... and seafood platter
The rude behavior of the person behind the registar (I don't know if she is the owner daughter) threw me off a bit... However it will not stop me from visiting again..
All these years standing, I will always come out of my way to pick up the best garlic blue crab in the Low Country...

“Love the garlic crabs! Absolutely delicious!!!”
Reviewed 31 August 2013

Julius and Peggy have a gem of a seafood restaurant! They also sell fresh fish of all varieties. The seafood is fresh and expertly seasoned. Every time I've eaten there I have been well satisfied. Next time you're traveling on Hwy 17, stop by. Or better yet, make it a destination. You won't be disappointed.

“Oh the Shark Bites....”
Reviewed 18 February 2013

Just a quick tip for those of you who travel up and down Hwy 17 between Charleston and Savannah... Make a stop into Ravenel Seafood and grab a bite or some fresh seafood to take home. Out of curiousity I tried a shark bite basket and loved it! The fried morsels of shark had this amazing lemony flavor that surprised me. I have to say that the fries were not crispy and under seasoned and the sweetish hush puppies would have benefited from a dice of sweet white onion in the batter, but I was charmed by the novelty of shark and its bite size preparation! The place is unpretentious, more a seafood store than restaurant. I grabbed some frog legs and gator meat for a gumbo that I am envisioning as I write this. If you like local and quirky, make this a stop on your drive. I'll be back.
