Authentic lowcountry food at its finest Apr 01, 2011
This unpretentious little dive pays tribute to the cuisine of the Gullahs, among the first African Americans to live in the Low Country sea islands. Gullah cooking is evocative of Creole flavors, and the dirty rice served here delectably comes with fresh shrimp, chicken, and andouille sausage. Here the okra pod is elevated to its rightful place in the pantheon of a great vegetable. The gumbo is delightful as is the she-crab soup, one of the best served in Charleston. Locals come for miles around to sample the southern fried chicken served with extra-cheesy macaroni. The fried oysters are succulent and shouldn't be missed.

Unique dining experience Sep 06, 2008
Don't be put off by the plain appearance of the building from the inside or the mismatched tables and chairs inside. This dining experience is one of the most unique Charleston offers.

The owner and staff strive to provide guests with authentic and fresh food. The taste of the food is always consistent and is reasonably priced for the area. The she-crab soup is arguably the best around and the lemonade and sweet tea are very refreshing on a sunny afternoon!

The price of appetizers (including gator tails and conch stew) are about $10/plate and are easily shared by a group. Entrees range from $15-$25/plate and are fairly large portions. The Gullah Rice is expensive and there was disagreement in our group about whether the price ($5 for a small bowl) justified that expense.
