This is truly a very nice restaurant. Off the beaten path in a very nice area off Coleman Blvd. The food covers the gamut from steaks to seafood done cook to perfection. The specials they have are always over the top especially fresh fish of the day. All this mixed with excellent service and a great happy hour.

Acme Lowcountry Kitchen

Acme Lowcountry Kitchen specializes in local seafood, if we cannot source it locally it is sourced off the East Coast of the USA! We do not serve seafood from any other area. We of course never serve any imported seafood. We truly believe in supporting American Fishermen and Shrimpers!

We took a party of five there for lunch. I got the Lowcountry Shrimp and Grits. Very good but almost too much for lunch. My wife got a spinach salad with grilled Salmon that she said was tasty. Others got Fried Flounder sandwiches that were good as well. Service was good, too.

The Obstinate Daughter

Reviewed By FoodieTootie - Alexandria

First how can't you love the name. My reviews focus on gluten free dining options. Upon contacting this restaurant via email to inquire about gluten free options, I received a prompt and helpful reply from the General Manager Jonathan. I was informed they have gluten free pasta, which is what we had hoped. We visited the location based on the reply and enjoyed delicious gluten free penne in a fennel and sausage ragu. Other members of my family enjoyed pizza and my young son had GF penne with a marinara sauce and pulled chicken (they made this upon request without being obstinate). The real star of this restaurant looks like small plates and various seafood options (many being gluten free). Our first visit was a teaser so I am longing to go back.

Stopped in after dinner elsewhere and got gelato and a chocolate chip cookie for dessert. The Key Lime gelato was very good, as was the salted caramel. A nice way to end the evening.

We serve the freshest seafood 7 days a week. Opened in 1986, locally owned and operated. lunch and dinner, Sunday brunch

Reviewed By David P - Norfolk, Virginia

Wonderful service, excellent drinks, delicious, fresh seafood, and a great menu make this place much better than the average strip-mall place. We loved every morsel! Try the Shrimp & Grits for a real treat. The fried green tomatoes appetizer was so good, but I wish I hadn't had so much of it because I couldn't finish my entree - good sized portions, remember to pace yourself!

Sea Biscuit Cafe

Reviewed By Tyler B - Sarasota, Florida

Great little breakfast place. Lots of cute little tables, great service, and great food!! Everything from the egg, cheese and bacon biscuit to the French toast is delicious. Quick friendly service with reasonable prices for a beach town. Off season so not much of a wait but definitely worth it. Easy to walk to and close to the beach. Give it a try.

Reviewed By Ellejoycreek - Seymour, Tennessee

We visited in early afternoon before the dinner crowd hit. This bar and grill type establishment was rather loud and cramped quarters. The BBQ was good and the service we received was excellent. It is my opinion that this is more of a bar than grill, but nonetheless the food was good, just not exactly what I expected.

I don't eat dairy or meat and I had the most wonderful beefsteak tomato salad and a spaghetti (house made and perfectly cooked) with greens, shrimp, olives and capers. Just delicious! My husband has the Gnocci with shrimp and he loved it.
We will be going back soon!
