Seeking seafood hole-in-the-wall in Charleston

Murse | Apr 5, 2012 10:49 AM

Heading to Charleston for a weekend and will likely visit one of the budget busting places that are well-represented on this board. To balance things out, would love to find, if such a thing exists, a quirky local place, ideally with some combination of great casual character, outdoor seating, reasonable prices, and seafood. A friend recommended Bowen's Island, which seems perfect in theory, but I've read some sketchy reviews. So maybe what we're looking for is someplace like Bowen's Island when Bowen's Island was actually good. If that makes sense. We can tolerate less-than-sublime food if the overall experience compensates. I know that's a tall order but would love to hear your thoughts! Thanks, everyone...
