Welcome to Bowens Island! Whether you're a first-time guest or a long-time regular, our aim is to serve you simple, excellent seafood.
Seafood low country style
A local favorite, on the water near Folly Beach—order the Frogmore stew.
Fresh oysters, raw or fried! Watch them dump them them fresh off the boat and hose the mud off them. Eat them by the bucket!
No question about it-best seafood in the lowcountry. non-peak times for fast service, but even at the slow dinner pace of summer tourist season, roasted oysters and fried shrimp are worth the wait!
There's no better place for oysters in the area! Enjoy beautiful sunsets in a wonderfully casual atmosphere! Love it!
Tooooo many private weddings
No oysters tonight.... Because of the water temperature.... WAH WAH !!!!! Having the frog stew instead
Try the White Thai ale. Locally brewed, beyond tasty...
Wait for food is 1 hr, at a min (70min for us, after a 30min wait to order). Food = not worth it. Hush puppies may have been the best (yeah). Shrimp=overcooked. Frogmore = meh. Picture is deceiving.
Order shrimp, sit outside, and watch the sunset from one of the best spots in the lowcountry.
Arrive before 5PM to avoid long lines.
Wear mosquito repellent!
The menu is limited, but you are going to Bowens for seafood. Order the shrimp or the oysters and you can’t go wrong. [eater 18 Member]
This restaurant has really good food and a great view of the beautiful marshes outside of Charleston and Folly Beach
Besides excellent seafood, there's beer here - 16 taps to be exact. At last visit, all beer was from local breweries, making this the best local tap selection in Charleston. Cheers!
Oysters! Oysters! Oysters! Beautiful sunsets!
As a local, I want to love this place, but don't come here if you're in any kind of hurry to eat on a weekend, the service is slowww!
Best seafood in the world!!!
Andrew Zimmern headed farther down the coast to this restaurant for an oyster roast. Andrew ate steamed oysters. As seen on Bizarre Foods America.
best oysters in Charleston...actually best seafood in Charleston. enjoy!
On Man v Food, Adam learns how to harvest oysters and the simple secret of making frogmore stew, which includes shrimp, potatoes, sausage and corn, in a boiling pot of seasoned water.
Same food as Long John Silver's, just 5x more expensive. Whiting and frozen to fried food. This place is awful. Great view though.
Chicken breast tenders are hugeee! Delicious too! Recommended.(:
Go for the all you can eat oysters roasted in an open fire pit Low Country Style. Mmmmmmmmmmm Mmmmmmmmmm GOOD !!!

If you're from out of town, ask owner Robert to teach you proper technique... it made the experience awesome for us Yankees.
The best local seafood in Charleston. Definitely have the oysters when they are in season. Split up when you come - some order food, others grab seats.
Try the shrimp and grits...it's delicious!
Oysters only in months with R's. Be sure to not dress up for this must-see-in-your-lifetime dive.
