My fiance and I are planning a "mini-moon" for several days at the Montage Palmetto Bluff in January. We are very food-focused (from the South originally, but both now live in NY) and are hoping to eat our way through the Lowcountry/Gullah region. We'll have a car and are planning on driving around a lot and taking some day trips.
However, we've already spent a fair amount of time in Charleston and Savannah and think we might skip them this time, and we have a feeling we won't be blown away by the offerings at the resort itself. We are looking for suggestions and recommendations for good local food, especially Gullah cuisine. We'd especially appreciate recommendations for places that are "off the beaten path" - we like holes-in-the-wall and seafood shacks (we are big shellfish people!).
