I am the Sales manager at Stella Marris Seafood, and hand pick all the local fish for the fine dining establishments. We have a multitude of local finfish, and shellfish. There are highly regulated seasons, and subsequently some items are not available during times of the year.
Sellsfish - can you tell me some good places to go an eat the local finfish and shellfish?

Thanks

Ambiance, maybe. Food sucks something terrible. They won't even let you change the cheese that comes on a sandwich...the reason given is that they swchs are pre-made. Come on.

In no particular order.....Make sure to ask your server "where does it come from?"

Red Drum, Lucca, Langdons, Hanks, SNOB, 17North, Anson, McCrady's, Fig, Fleet Landing, Hagees, Waters Edge, Reds Ice House, Garabaldi's, Peninsula Grill, Charleston Grill, Glass Onion, Magnolias, Cypress, Blossum, Vickery' Fulton five, Neil Jordans ,,,,, this is a good start.

All of these places feature local product, and will use high quality items from the west coast and Caribbean as well. You will never get a "local" piece of Salmon or Halibut.

Patti, Yes indeed, there ARE clams here plenty of them! Clamming is seasonal, and you certainly need to know exactly HOW and where to get them. It is a LOT different that Narragansett Bay! Got the legal limit in no time last time I went and I'm ol...um....well, let's just say I get the senior discount at the movies ...

That being said, every fall we have *Rocky Point 'Chowdah'* and Clam Cakes* here. My daughter makes clams casino until we are sick of them...

Heck, I know I'm shooting myself in the foot here but Sellsfish made a video about clamming in South Carolina...
YouTube - the art of clamming

Oh, and Sellsfish is my boy, his first job was at Rocky Point! He spent the first half of his life fishing new england, and the second half fishing and retailing here...he KNOWS his fish...

Now, off to cook the most BEE YOO TEE FUL piece of fresh cod that I just bought from Stella Marris today...

Hope you are enjoying your first year in SC...wait until January!

the quickest way we clam here is to use a clam rake, at low tide run up on a bank of pluff mud and look around... look for keyholes that look exactly like the one's on old doors that take skeleton keys, drag your rake over that keyhole and you'll find a clam!

you can fill burlap bushell bags in minutes like that, I've done it many a time... my Uncle, Capt. White on Johns Island taught me how to do that when I was a kid... he happens to also be on exibit in our state museum for being such a river rat, making a livin in the rivers around here for soooo many years... Sonny White, retired now...

Kathy,
YOU MADE MY DAY!!!! I can't wait to go clamming or even buy some to make chowda and clamcakes. So I guess from October and through the winter you can clam here?? Make sense that they are better when the water cools a little. Where exactly is Stella Marris Seafood? We will defintiely be visiting there in the near future. I miss Rocky Point. Such a big part of my childhood going to the shore dinner hall and filling up on the chowda, clamcakes and watermelon. Those were the days!! Have a great day and thanks for making my day.
