Shem Creek Bar and Grill Ratings and Reviews
This has always been one of our "go to" restaurants; however, this particular meal was disappointing. I had the fried seafood platter which didn't resemble a $23 meal. The Shem Creek spuds were cold, thick and lumpy. My wife had the fish tacos and was equally underwhelmed. We'll still go back...but too many trips like this one might take them off our list.
We had heard nothing but good things about the food. It was not good, nor worth the dining experience. My wife got the stuffed flounder and it was "watery" and tasteless. I got the Shem Creek Seafood Spectacular (shrimp, scallops, Mahi-Mahi and crab cake)...the shrimp was tasty, but not great, the scallops were a little mushy, the Mahi was the best part of the dish, and the crabcake was not good. We were there on Wednesday, the first day they were open after hurricane Irma, so I credit the poor food to recovery from that disaster.
Went there for Charleston restaurant week because the food menu sounded great. The server was friendly and enthusiastic . By the time the food got to the table, it was cold. There was no color to the plate of food. As a matter of fact, it was brown & sad looking. Everything was 'ok'; nothing to brag about, but it wasn't horrible.
We were a group of four coming to celebrate a family birthday and were first time diners. Our booking was made through Open Table and we were very happy to receive the time requested and exactly the table location we asked for. Service (Casey girl) was excellent. We had a fantastic picturesque view of the creek from both angles. We all ordered different entrees and everyone was very happy with their meal. Portion were generous. Crab cakes were awesome good. Big bowls were almost too big and very fresh combinations. Veges were a little on the crisp side of steamed but good. Enjoyed the whole experience and will be back soon!
Came here on a recommendation from a local. We wanted a casual seafood place. This place was casual, but way too loud. The seats are at least 25 years old. The food was ok; the sauce they had for the seafood wasn't that great. Great bar area on the waterfront. Good place for locals to hang out.
The food was fresh and delicious! Crab cakes were great, and so was the fried shrimp combo with flounder and shrimp po boy. Key lime pie was light and was the perfect finish to our meal. Location was beautiful and staff were on point! We will definitely return when we visit again.
We were looking for a family friendly place to get some seafood during our trip to Charleston. We were able to get a few classics (crab legs/fried shrimp/hushpuppies) as well as a great gumbo. We didn't want to dress up or worry about the kids being too loud and this was great. We got there early and it was not very crowded, but by 6:30pm it was getting full. The waitress was great, checked in on us often while we had a few beers before the meal. Kids menu provided basics for our kids that weren't into seafood. Overall a great little place tucked away.
Great place to introduce visitors to Charleston. We sat outside and had a great view of the Creek with the Ravenel Bridge in the background at sunset. Service was very good. We were a party of 5 and two had the Big Guy Gumbo...seafood was plentiful and delicious as was the Jambalaya. I had the mahi which was also very good. Nice casual atmosphere with good food!
My wife and I wanted to go to a fun place with two other couples. This place is fantastic! We had drinks in the back bar with great views of Shem Creek. We ate dinner inside and the local seafood was really good. Our server was attentive. We will definately go back!
The hostess wasn't the most polite. Our food came out piece meal. Crab cakes had shell bits in them and weren't very good. Others in my party were not impressed with their dishes either. Wait staff was nice but couldn't cover hostess, food delivery and food quality issues.
Great place to eat, servers are friendly. The food is fantastic and having fresh seafood was a big plus. The only criticism I would give, when we were there they were out of hush puppies. It seemed almost impossible that a seafood restaurant would not have them, but just a small oversight. I had eaten there years ago and it definitely lived up to my memory. My daughter was very pleased with her Birthday dinner. I would give it a two thumbs up.
