Where to Eat in Charleston Right Now
The gist: Simply Seafood is a standout pandemic restaurant that popped up on John’s Island. On the surface, it looks like just another seafood shack, but fresh and flavorful ingredients set it far apart from the fishy pack.
The food: Much like a typical seafood joint, Simply Seafood offers fried seafood baskets, garlic seafood platters, seafood boils, sandwiches, and salads. A wise choice is the seafood platter with three different selections (we recommend the shrimp, oysters, and fish filets), plus two sides (you gotta try the mac and cheese and the fried okra). If you’re looking for something a little lighter, the garlic snow crabs or a shrimp seafood boil are also great options.
The cost: The three seafood platter with two sides is $15.99, garlic snow crab platter is $26.99, baskets range from $8-12, and sandwiches all clock in under $10.
How to book: Stop by for first come, first served seating.
