I would like some recommendations for moderately priced seafood restaurants in the Charleston area. I was raised in Charleston buy have not lived there in many years. The Trawler at Shim Creek, to me was the quintessential low country seafood restaurant. I have been back to Charleston in recent years but was not impressed with the moderately priced seafood restaurants I dined at. I tried Hymans but was not pleased with the quality of food and their Florida oysters.

Is there an equal to the Trawler or is it just a memory?

What is moderately priced? To me that is the $15-$25 range for seafood dishes...in that range, I like the The Wreck on Shem Creek, Hanks downtown, Coast downtown, and Queen Anne's Revenge on Daniel Island. I don't know if there is any great seafood place w/ dishes less than $15 unless you just want something like Fried Shrimp.

The Noisey Oyster has half price appetizers starting at 4 p.m. This is only available in the bar though. If you go with a group and like to share, you can make a meal and try a variety of things.

I looked at websites and menus for each restaurant you mentioned. They all are moderately priced in my opinion. I liked their menu choices and hope to give each a try. I have eaten at The Wreck, the food was excellent. I was turned off by the paper plates; do they still serve on paper plates?

Thanks for your recommendations.

Yeah, the wreck is the wreck. Us locals love it, but if you want great seafood with a southern flair, then go to Hanks downtown. More upscale and it has some great atmosphere. Just don't go to Hymans.

Honestly neither I nor my wife were thrilled with the food at Hanks. We've always received a great meal at The Boathouse restaurant which is on your way to Sullivans Island. Great seafood there.

Man, I miss that place! We used to drive over in the early 70's, when stationed at the Naval Base. It was out in the "country" back then. Times do change! We drove down from Pawleys every few months just to eat there. Showed up one day and they were closed. Broke my heart... Musta been about 2003-2004?

Our last few visits to the Wreck were disappointing. It seems to be more about the atmosphere now than the food. That don't work for me. In fact, we're still lookin' for a decent replacement at Shem Creek. Not a big RB's fan. We like Vickery's but I'm not sure it qualifies as a seafood joint.
