"1st - with a few exceptions you have to use valet parking, even if the parking spot is opposite the entrance; 2nd - the noise level is absurdly loud, even difficult to talk with someone beside you without almost shouting; 3rd - my double thick pork chop was over cooked & tough and the sauce was TOO salty! This was my 2nd visit - the 1st time was unimpressive but I thought that was an exception and opted to try a 2nd time -- will NOT be returning a 3rd time!..."

"I was looking forward to my dinner at Red Drum, as I have eaten here several times before. I was seated immediately and didn't have to wait too long for a server to check on me.
I ordered an appetizer, crab and guacamole on a Tostito chip, which was delicious. When my dining guest arrived, we ordered dinner; a daily homemade enchilada, it was really not edible. I tried, as I was hungry, but ended up being glad there were leftover appetizers.
I also ordered dessert, the doughnuts, which were bland and not very good.
Overall, I was very disappointed and left Red Drum still hungry.

"Enjoyed the appetizers more than the entrees...ordered the crab on tortilla chips (forget the name) and the fried shrimp as appetizers and the hamburger and chicken entrees. Both entrees were good but outshone by the appetizers. Will definitely go back. The waiter was extremely good and pleasant."

"Some friends and I always try to visit restaurants we've never dined at before during restaurant week, and this time we chose Red Drum! And we are so glad we did! Everything was nice. All three of us ate everything! Nothing was left on either of our plates! I will be back."

"I was reminded of why it's been a while since my last visit...loud,loud, loud...the waitress responded to my asking about the quail and venison sausage dish with "it's very popular" and "can you tell me about the cheese on the cheese plate? "It's white"..the cheddar that we ordered tasted like Kraft Cheddar Barrel...at least the enchiladas and shrimp tacos were tasty."

"We selected Red Drum for our choice for Restaurant Week. They had one of the most interesting Restaurant Week menus, with a nice spectrum of choices. Unfortunately many times, local restaurants will try to "tunnel" their Restaurant Week menus into less elegant choices. Red Drum made sure the offerings were not only elegant, but the portions in turn were generous and left you full. All selections from the menu were enjoyed, and prepared well. Another thing I liked about this restaurant was I felt our server, Adam, was very kind and attentive. One downside to this restaurant is the bench seating. I loathe bench seating. It seems that whenever you are a party of 2, and there is bench seating, that is where you will be stuck. I hate this type of seating mainly because you are sitting on top of your dining neighbors and it feels invasive to your private conversation. I know that this is the trend at most restaurants but again, it is something I personally do not enjoy. I would love to be offered another type of seating such as a booth etc., which didn't seem to be an option. However, the major negative I had with this restaurant was how loud it was in there. I didn't have to worry about our dining neighbor overhearing our conversation because it was so loud in the restaurant I barely could hear myself think. There was a large party along the other bench wall, and another table of approximately 7-8 young adults that even though their conversations were probably of regular decibel level, the way the acoustics are in the restaurant their voices carried so loudly. I couldn't even hear my own friend when she was talking, and she had to tell me the server's name because when he said it, I could not hear him. I would also like to see more variety of specialty cocktail choices on the menu as well. Somebody behind the bar really likes "Grapefruit"."

"Made the trip down to Red Drum while visiting family in Elloree. Food was delicious. My husband had the chicken and biscuits and I had the sausage with fried eggs. My mom loves the shrimp and grits. Will definitely go back again."

"This was a first time visit to Red Drum Resturant. We felt it was a little noisy but it was a Friday night and we sat close to the bar. The food was good--different from your usual Southern Fare! I had BBQ Shrimp and it was delicious. It came with Corn Pudding and it was different but good."
