Look for the Dodge’s Chicken sign as you head out Highway 17 South and hang a hard right into the Fishnet Seafood parking lot. This favorite of locals (and go-to fried crab shack of Sean Brock), tucked in a weathered former filling station, sports a plethora of fried seafood. Ladies wearing white shrimp boots patiently hand-bread full-bellied blue crab, load up fryers, and make chitchat with regulars. You can select your local catch of choice from the on-site fishmonger to have it fried up specially for you, from croaker to porgy to flounder. Don’t be surprised if the catfish on ice is still moving, watching you as you decide its fate. It’s that fresh. The walls are adorned with scripture — they sell Jesus crabs rather than deviled — but the steady line of worshipers at the lunchtime counter testify to the authenticity of honest people who just cook it the right way. —Allston McCrady (Dish, Summer 2019)
