Re: “RESTAURANT REVIEW: Bowens Island Restaurant

I remember the first time I went to Bowen's Island in 1973. If you didn't know the road was there to turn onto, you would for sure miss it. When it rained and the tide was high you had to drive the "wrong-way" in and held your breath that someone wasn't driving out. Old Man Bowen would come by your table and talk for ever unless telling you stories about his life. His wife was the waitress (the grandmother of the current owner who I remember coming to Bowen's a few times over the years I went there) and it was a real challenge to get her to smile (but we did on occasion). And John, who went out and got the oysters and shrimp never talked. I wonder what happened to him? The food was awesome and cheap. My favorite was the combination plate ($2.50 I think). It had fried shrimp, a couple of crab cakes - different from the ones you have a fancy restaurant and my favorite hush puppies of all time!) I hope to get to the island this summer when my family (remarried with 2 kids) come down. I know I could fine - I hope - my name carved into one of the tables! Wow, what a trip down nostalgia! A MUST for any visitors who like the non-commercial sites of Charleston!
