In their latest issue, Southern Living magazine came out with South Carolina's 10 Best Seafood Spots. The Sea Shack on Hilton Head Island and Bluffton Family Seafood House both made the list. Check it out here.
Here's what Southern Living recommends at each place:
"Hearty appetites should try the Shack Attack ($17), which combines a crab cake, tilapia, shrimp, scallops, and oysters on a giant paper platter." I usually go for one of the grilled platters when I got there, although their shrimp burger is also a favorite. Platters come with two sides - collard greens, cheese grits, sweet potato cornbread, mac and cheese and other good stuff.
Bluffton Family Seafood House
"Share a bucket of steamed oysters ($20), then dive into a basket of fried shrimp ($14) with a side of stewed tomatoes and rice." It's run by the folks at the Bluffton Oyster Co., so their seafood is pulled from local waters. I'd also recommend the Lowcountry Boil.
