The view behind Backman’s Seafood is reason enough to take a right off Folly Road on Sol Legare and visit this little seafood shack that overlooks a beautiful marsh and pier. The back lot of Backman’s has been a hangout for friends and family for decades. Inside the seafood store, employees munch on fresh seafood while watching game shows in the kitchen beside the seafood case. They cook breakfast every day on that stove. Backman’s boat, the Enterprise, stocks the shop with local fish. They specialize in fresh fish and occasionally have crabmeat. You’ll have a hard time finding anything there that costs more than $7. Backman’s also sells pickled pigs’ feet and pickled sausage fermenting in plastic barrels. A little-known fact: The boat that’s beached on the side of Folly Road belongs to the Backmans. It became a landmark after it was washed away by Hurricane Hugo.
