    Shrimp and grits were great! I thought the service was excellent. When I told my friends I was going to Charleston I had 7 people mention this place.

    Only order the casserole if you want a LITTLE seafood with a TON of cheese... Call your cardiologist first. Sad frozen shrimp paired with sad frozen scallops on a "bed" of crab-like stuff and CHEESE!

    Try the Bacon Wrapped Crab Stuffed Shrimp - Just a touch salty, if you are sensitive to that...I'm not ;-)

    Seafood, not the stuff we get in Wisconsin, IS a beautiful thing. Try raw bar for openers...!

    Fried green tomatoes alright. Jerk relish is a nice compliment. Skip the seafood anchors. Big chunks of potatoes, light on crab.

    Be ready for incompetent hosting staff that simply ignore you when you are waiting to be seated and then take you to a table with dirt and crumbs all over the seat.

    Really best avoided. Service was fine but the food was sub-par. I had a seafood platter and the scallops were so soggy they were unbeatable. I won’t be coming back.

    Don't waste your time, money or appetite on this place. Food was horrible, service was fine but did not make up for bad food. Steampot was overcooked and the Legandary casserole has no taste
