Charleston SC shrimp and grits

One of the most essential of Carolina Lowcountry foods, visitors and locals can have a look here at who makes the best shrimp and grits (and contributors can rank theirs, if they like, on a scale of 1-10, with 10 being good. Please offer the price if possible)

THE SWAMP FOX: $13.25 lunch $18.25 dinner
Rating: ? (this was my first ever shrimp and grits so I don't know what to rank it)

This was a decent-sized bowl of thick-like soup that was actually pepper jack grits dunked in a lobster and tasso ham gravy. The rich combination had a very distinctive sweet/salty/spicy mix, almost Asian in taste, with bits of Vidalia onion and bell pepper coming to the surface every now and then. The five large shrimp hitting the pool were almost crumbly-tender, and it was overall a very rich and potent broth that was very tasty (and award-winning, according to the restaurant, though what that award is isn't said).
