Re: “Buddy Roe's Shrimp Shack

I've been going to Buddy Roe's for about 4 years now and absolutely LOVE IT!! They always have great entertainment and good food. Love the outside deck. If you want to dance the night away this is the place to come to. Ronnie and Kim Johnson are very good, down to earth,honest people. I very highly recommend Buddy Roe's. Diana Talbott

Great for lunch, dinner and music. Always a good crowd! Oysters and Carroll Brown are great on Sunday nights.

Re: “Buddy Roe's Shrimp Shack

We love to go to Buddie Roe's as much as we can for good times. There is always live entertainment with a great mixture of music that is great.

The atmosphere is laid back and feels like your in a bar in Key West Fl. Much dancing & drinking all night long.

Food is great, especially the shrimp baskets. This is also a great place to have a rehearsal dinner, office party or other function. Kim Johnson & the staff will work with you to put together a menu that works for everyone.

Ronnie Johnson has been entertaining people in the area since i moved here in 98. I have been going to see him sing or to one of his bars since then. Thanks for all of the great times!

Re: “Buddy Roe's Shrimp Shack

Really hard to find good food/music in one place. Buddy Roe's excellent food and some of the best entertainment on the East Coast, constantly bringing in a variety of well know acts to add to the already great Ronnie and Chris show. Don't miss it if in the Mt. Pleasant/Charleston area!!

Re: “Buddy Roe's Shrimp Shack

There is a must go to Buddy Roe's Restaurant in the Mt.Pleasant/ Isle Of Palms area.. If you want to feel at home and be entertained, you can always depend on Ronnie & Kim...There is so much talent that comes through this Restaurant..Ronnie has been well known among all the better musician's all over the world..When they are in this part of SC they love to come and perform with Ronnie..Local folks just drop-in often. Everybody raves about the good seafood and burgers. Stop by sometime when you are in this area,or make it a point to come & I promise you there will be no regrets..

Re: “Buddy Roe's Shrimp Shack

My husband (Boyd) and I love to go to Buddy Roe's --- the atmosphere is one of being at home --- very friendly -- reminds one of the bar on "Cheers" where everyone knows your name ---

Kim & Ronnie are great -- they always make everyone feel so at home -- they go around and speak to everyone there -- the staff cannot be better -- just great. It is so nice that as soon as you walk in the door, the waitress is on her way to you with your wine. I love it.

Great food -- their pimento cheese hamburgers are awesome -- homemade pimento cheese by Kim.

Music: you are not going to get any better --Ronnie is so talented -- plays and sings very well, but also has a great personality. And Kim is a great entertainer also.
There is always a nice variety of music -- we are big "shaggers" and he always accommodates us --

In case, you cannot tell, Buddy Roe's is one of our very favorite places to go -- only issue that we have is that most nights, the music does not start until 9:00pm and we are about ready to go home by then (we are of the older generation, but still love to have a good time.)

Buddy Roe's is highly recommended by the Loadholts -- Ronnie & Kim, we love you.

Re: “Buddy Roe's Shrimp Shack

Great food, fun place and the best live entertainment in town!

Re: “Buddy Roe's Shrimp Shack

Ronnie Johnson & his lovely wife and staff have been supporting local live music for years. This past year they have graciously hosted traveling songwriters and numerous benefits for musicians who are sick or in dire straits. The fried shrimp are su-pah!

Re: “Buddy Roe's Shrimp Shack

Great place to stop in! The food and drinks are excellent and never over priced and the atmosphere is lots of fun! The live music is always fun and great to listen to! Always enjoy watching the dancers when there! If you want to have a good time while in Charleston make sure not to miss Buddy Roe's Shrimp Shack!!

Re: “Buddy Roe's Shrimp Shack

One of the best kept secrets in the Charleston area. It's where the locals like to go and hang out. The food is awesome and the atmosphere is comfortable and relaxing. Ronnie is a fantastic entertainer and his music will have you dancing the night away. It's one of our favorite places to go. It's kid friendly as well!

Re: “Buddy Roe's Shrimp Shack

As a professional touring musician/entertainer with over 35 years spent road-dogging from Miami to NYC, and Atlanta to Seattle, I have performed at a host of 4 and 5 star restaurants and resorts..and I know a thing or two about food, atmosphere and entertainment. For any person to post a negative comment about Buddy-Roe's, to me, simply means they are either lying..or have no class, no travel experience, no notion of quality, and more than likely no money. (The bad grammar is usually a dead-giveaway that you're dealing with cretins!) Buddy-Roes Shrimp Shack in Mt. Pleasant is, for my money, the most fun, laid-back restaurant and music venue in the entire metro Charleston area. The food is consistently excellent, the customer service is impeccable, and the vibe is warm and friendly, with everyone who walks through the door treated as friend and family. The facility itself could have been airlifted, intact, from Key West and installed's that authentic, and atmospheric. The music is awesome (and I am HARD to please!) and the dance floor is always busy! I have friends from all over the USA who have stopped by for an afternoon or evening, and they consitently offer the same opinion "this place is a hidden treasure"...just minutes from everywhere in the historic district, this is THE place for food and fun!

Re: “Buddy Roe's Shrimp Shack

If you are looking for a place to dance the night away - look no further. The food is great and the band is even better. The open deck is awesome.

Buddiroe's should definitely should be apart of your weekend plans!

Re: “Buddy Roe's Shrimp Shack

One of my top "Must Visit" places when we go to Mt. Pleasant/IOP area. I was introduced to Buddy Roe's three years ago and have loved it ever since. The food has always been good, Ronnie is a great entertainer. It's a good place to just go and unwind, have a few adult beverages, dance or just sit back and listen to some good musice.

Awesome food and entertainment. The best of Charleston.

Re: “Buddy Roe's Shrimp Shack

So you want a Local Place that doesn't take your wallet and throw it in the Marsh? A place you can hear great tunes, talk to the cool bartenders and eat LOCAL SHRIMP!?! Then go to Buddy Roes. No, they are not paying me! I just think this place is spiffy since Ronnie bought this eye sore next door to me and opened The Shrimp Shack! I even took my Uncle Bobby to shag... he loved it! Try the Shrimp Basket GRILLED with the Hot Bacon Sauce! yum.... and you have to try the fish tacos. Better than POE'S! Love it... always a great time. Thanks guys! You're awesome! xo

Re: “The Wreck of the Richard and Charlene

Being the green and conservationist person that I am, I cannot support this restaurant. Everything is disposable. And for somewhere that charges an obscene amount for their food, I think that they can afford the water to wash dishes.

The setting otherwise is very pleasant, and I do like the fact that the food is local. That being said, it's definitely not the best in town. If you want delicious seafood with the sustainability and atmosphere, I suggest somewhere else. If all you want is tradition--go here.
