If you want to have some good food and excellent entertainment, then you need to go to Buddy Roe's Shrimp Shack in Mt Pleasant. Ronnie and Kim Johnson are two of the nicest people you will ever meet and when you go to Buddy Roe's they make you feel like you are family and they appreciate you coming there. Ronnie is the most talented person in the lowcoutry and we are so happy that we have a great place to go and hear first class entertainment.With the addition of his new chef Adam,Buddy Roe's Shrimp Shack only has one place to go and that is to the top of the list .
Thanks for all the good times and can't wait to try out your new menu.

Our favorite place in all of Charleston. The atmosphere is so laid back and Carolina Beach you want to kick off your shoes, have some shrimp and a cold one. Their food is all fresh, local and incredible. The owners Ronnie & Kim Johnson go out their way to make everyone feel they are the most important person in the place. Ronnie Johnson may be the best artist in the Southeast much less Charleston. You really got to hear & see his show. To sum it up, this is the place in Charleston for great food, great friends, and fabulous music.

What's not to like about Buddy Roe's? Lemon-pepper shrimp is scrumptious as are the home-cut french fries. Diane is a most attentive hostess at lunch. Music at night is great. Not only do you get to hear Ronnie and Kim Johnson perform, but he brings in great talent to accompany him (Chris, Tom). Ronnie and his wife, Kim, are wonderful hosts.
As for any of the complaints I've read, I question whether these people have let their servers know. I've always found that Ronnie and Kim will make it right. They're all about great service.
Been there for lunch, dinner and entertainment. Food is good. Lots of variety in the shrimp. Atmosphere is laid back and mature. Fun time all around.
Chef Adam Palmeno from Key West is a great addition to BuddyRoe's with his BaHa Fish Tacos and Seared Tuna. He adds another great reason to visit this cool beachy spot that the New York Post called "the sleeper hit of the day". They also have live music and musicians like Jeff Cook of the super group "Alabama" sittin in when in town.
Hey, but don't just take my word....try it for yourself......taste is in the "Shrimp"!
Once again I have got up and Said to My Lady lets go get some Good Eats. So I pack a small over night bag and place it in the car for a 13hr drive to get some of the best Tacos and Great KeyLime Pie with Good Local Made IceCream. I drive straight thur non-stop once again. I look at the Negative marks above and Just wonder if the people have Burnt their taste buds on their Microwave Dinners While they sit at home scared to step out of their fantasy bubble or if they just Truly dont know what good food taste like. No I'm not part of the Staff, I'm just a Fan of GREAT food. Once again Great Food, Great Service and Excellent Atmosphere. Always Satisfied!
We had a group of 7 down at Blossom last weekend and were pleasantly surprised with the meal. It had been a year or two since the last time we were there and felt that the restaurant and the menu were slightly dated and had not returned since that time. The menu, while manageable in size, still included enough variety to satisfy the 11 year old to 78 year old diners in our group.
The appetizers of oysters, calamari and spinach/artichoke dip were tasty and adequate in portion size to share for the table. The main dishes ranged from Shrimp to Pizza to Gnocchi and all were created with obvious care and consideration of subtle variations in taste.
The waiters and staff were knowledgable and attentive even in a very crowded and busy setting.
All in all; a very nice evening out.
I can't believe they would set a trap for raccoons - - raccoons live in the marsh and this particular restaurant is course located on the marsh/creek. They probably have a rodent problem too if all of these animals are hanging around. Rarely do I have seafood that is fresh or tastes any good at a restuarant. I've heard horror stories about food poisoning from AW Shucks. I prefer to cook it myself.
Whoa. Thanks for the heads up.
HORRIBLE- everything from the mussels, stuffed flounder, wedge salad had spoiled dressing or blue cheese, made a miami vice wrong, waitress knew it but brought it to the table anyway.....plus the worst management I have ever seen (yes she came to our table) SPEND YOUR MONEY ANYWHERE BUT HERE
tourist trap... lousy food... better places next door and across the creek.
No longer happening.
Sounds like some staff is chiming in ;-)
Great food Great Service and One Heck of a Great place. I always like the opinion of curstormers that complain about the little things. Always blow nothing into something, because they have nothing better to do. Maybe take a deep breath and Enjoy the freash air every once in awhile. Figured if your nose is that far in the air, it shouldnt be that much trouble. If I had to wait two hours to eat here I would. But if I was in such a hurry that I didt have time to sit down an enjoy myself and the fresh air, I should have just stop at MickeyD's. But thats right I went out to sit down and eat a meal, so that means I'm not in a hurry. Great food takes time, we all know this. Would rather wait on a Great meal, but thats me. I say if you dont like it dont go back Period. It's that simple. But anyone that knows good food and Likes to eat this is the place to be. It's got a down home feel with GREAT food at a Great price. Just go see for yourself and make up your on mind.
Hyman's Seafood is the worst restaurant in the Southeast. It is a tourist trap that prides itself on having a line out the door; which is probably because management closes 75 to 90 percent of the restaurant in order to create this illusion of grandeur. The food is crap, the service crappier, and the thought of even going back makes me sick to my stomach. With all that said Hyman's Seafood = Shit Food, Shit Service, and a Shittier Experience. Sorry for my french; but it's hard to get ones opinion out when there is no option for negative stars.
Living in Louisiana for most of my life I thought I had enjoyed the best seafood but after dining at Amen and having the seafood platter now I know I've had the best seafood.The shrimp, hush puppies,creamed corn,oysters, and flounder is excellent....
I had the pleasure of dining at Lazo's on Tuesday of this week, and am about to go back today. Some of the many parts of a great meal at a restaurant include the ingredients, the preparation, the service, and the atmosphere. So, the ingredients can't be beat at Lazo's. I had shrimp and grits for breakfast--organic shrimp produced by the restaurant's own team, on the best hominy I've ever had. I could eat this every day for a month. Then put together so well, cooked just right. Delivered with love for the customer to a table outdoors under the most amazing blue sky with the sounds of surf, birds, and happy Folly Beach revelers. This meal was elegant in all these respects, yet in a totally casual, typically Folly Beach kinda place. (My wife and two young sons enjoyed theirs as much as I did!)
WTF is up with this place (last 2 comments)
The owner and the management of this establishment completely disrespected a large group of my friends when they went there yesterday to have some drink later in the evening. The managers said to them: Your 'kind' is disrupting Mount Pleasant and the only reason you are in this country is because my father fought in the war. This was one of many comments made to my friends (the group consisted of varying cultures of young people who just wanted to have a good time) before RUDELY kicking them out. Comments were made about gays being in allowed in the military and so forth. When I went there again to file a complaint, the owner told me to GET OUT NOW after finding out what my complaint was about. They threatened to call the COPS on me because I was inquiring about their rude and disrespectful behavior. I was not hostile and didnt come there to discuss anything or prove a point, I just wanted to talk to the manager. The male GM basically made me back out of there while continuing to threaten me and then verbally assualted me outside with random comments that completely were unneccesarry. This place is a dump in general and this just makes it intolerable. Please do not go eat there and give them your money because they obviously have no respect for people...who are all well educated and contributors to this economy in many great ways. Majority of them are either in the Air Force or work for the federal government...so how is it that WE DO NOT BELONG THERE??????
