Hi: We are considering a week long vacation to Seabrook Island, SC. We are normally not into that "gated community" thing, but we are planning it for last minute and can get a deal there. Plus, the scenery looks nice. The only thing is I'm afraid of that Disney-esque feel to the restaurants/coffee shops/etc. Of course I know we can drive to Charleston, but I'd also like to know if there are any local places so we wouldn't always have to make the late night drive back. And yes, I know we can cook.
To give you an idea of what we like, we enjoy places like O'Steens or Caps in St. Augustine, Rod&Reel on Anna Maria, and any lobster shack in Maine. Not pretentious, not touristy, not fancy.
