Shem Creek Bar and Grill Ratings and Reviews
Have always told friends that this is a great restaurant to go to.
But, on this visit, some of the food was burnt, some of it tasted old or out of date.
Our waitress sat at the bar texting on her phone while we waited for her to come take our drink orders. She never asked us if we needed anything. Just brought the drinks and then the food and then the bill. Perhaps she needed to stay home that night.
Otherwise, the staff was friendly and the view was great.
Our first visit sated our curiosity. The food was clean and of medium quality. Entrees were ample quantity but crab dip appetizer was very scant, though delicious. Our waiter appeared to be a avid connoisseur of cannabis and not trained to wait tables. Nothing was bad except the choices of wines. Just not at all impressive, except for the sunset.
This was our first time at Shem Creek Bar &Grill. 2 of us are locals, 2 from Ohio. Atmosphere was fun, lively but not extremely loud. Service was excellent. The menu had something for everyone and the prices were what I'd expect. One nice thing was prices were listed for cocktails which many restaurants don't list these. The food was excellent although the filet mignon wasn't what I was used to compared to other restaurants. The cut was very thin and covered in a thick gravy but was still quite tasty. We've found a new place to eat when we return to SC!
Been here maybe 2x/year over several years. Most recent visit will make me think twice before going back because food was mediocre at best. Appetizers of baked oysters and fried mushrooms were good, although oysters were barely warm. Mushrooms were shiitake and a generous portion. Crab cake entree was nowhere near as good as it used to be. Large, but not much crab flavor. Grouper on special a bit tough and overcooked (not totally ruined), probably because filet was thin. Food was on the greasy side. On the other hand, view was good and waiter was attentive. I would be most likely to return to have a meal of appetizers and try the oyster stew and soups. It may be that this was just not the best day for us and things may return to how we remembered them. Or, maybe, this restaurant is cutting back on more expensive ingredients. May try again.
Several years ago we stayed on the Isle of Palm every spring when our children were competing in their high school sport events. We often dined at Shem Creek Bar and Grill, and always had a good meal. This most recent visit was quite disappointing. The restaurant felt dirty, and the fish boiled dinner was awful. It seemed literally boiled to utter mush.
The server was gracious however and our bill was adjusted accordingly. Hopefully, we just came on a bad nite, but they were hardly busy, and quite frankly, they should be at their best every nite.
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.
