Always suggest you make a reservation at this popular spot. I have been here many times and it is always crowded. The food is always great. the service is typically slow. Sitting outside on a beautiful day like this weekend sipping a $3 mimosa, I didn't mind the wait. I loved my Shrimp Eggs Benedict with a rice cake and... More

Couldn't book for Valentines Day-even though we called a week ahead. However, they kept their Valentines menu until Feb. 19 so we went last night instead! It was divine! Crispy Duck . Hubby had the filet with Bearnaise Sauce. One of the few places in the area with perfect Fried Green Tomatoes and the She Crab soup! Yum Yum!!!!! A... More

We went there for their Valentines Special meal deal which was a very good value. The fried oyster and green tomatoes appetizer was excellent. The bottle of house Cabernet that came with the Special was also very good. My wife had the crispy duck which was great especially the sauce served on the side but the rice was just too... More

I've been to this restaurant many times, and my wife and I have made it part of our rotation. The variety offered should provide ample choices for most patrons. Among the best offerings, in my opinion, are the pizzas, blackened Salmon, the Cuban, and the Grilled Shrimp with Tomato and Basil pasta. Like any place, you can always go and... More

Menu has a little bit of everything. Pizza is homemade and delicious! Their salad dressings are homemade and my fave is blue cheese for sure! Really relaxing atmosphere with a quaint little bar area. Live music out on the patio some nights which is awesome! Take the kids or use their take out! We are local and frequent this place... More

Several nights feature specials and the night we stopped was "couples" night. The fixed rate specials included a bottle of house wine. The service was good and the meals were enjoyable. Judging by the parking his seems to be a popular spot most nights.

Based on majority of reviews we were looking forward to our dinner. Then the meal arrived, salads didn't taste fresh w/the lettuce starting to brown. Both the steak and salmon were tough and chewy and the side veggies were extremely oversalted. I went to bed last night thinking average, I woke up today knowing it was poor and kicking myself...

This was our first time at SWC. Zach was our waiter for dinner. We ordered calamari for appetizer and cod medallions with mashed potatoes, carrots and lemon sauce for dinner. The calamari was excellent - very fresh (not rubbery at all), flavorful and a lot on the plate. The dinner came before we were done which I don't like but... More

What a great find on my trip. I liked the service food and atmosphere at this godsend gem. Hard to find because signage is missing. But I guess that's the way the locals want it. I ordered the Salmon spinach salad, which had perfectly cooked medium salmon. (So hard to find a place that actually cares about the way the... More

While not on the water the atmosphere is coastal Carolina relaxed. Service was very good, attentive but not overbearing. The menu includes several variations on eggs benedict. I had shrimp benedict. At first I thought I should have more than three shrimp on each muffin half but these weren't tiny and when cut they proved to be just right. I'll... More
