Places to eat near Seabrook and Kiawah Islands

Jump to last reply

Seven favorite places to eat near Seabrook Island and Kiawah Islands, plus two more to add to the list.

For those who are interested or who might be thinking of vacationing on one of these two barrier islands near Charleston, SC, the following is my list of favorite places to eat close by. These are places I’ve eaten at in the past three months (we recently moved to Seabrook Island). At the end of the list are two additional places with great reviews from friends. They’re in no particular order and are simply my preferences. Hope they help.

1. Crave. http://www.cravecharleston.com/
5-10 minutes outside the gates at 4430 Betsy Kerrison Parkway. It has a great breakfast and lunch menu and many items to go. The breakfast frittata was fantastic.

2. Chez Fish. http://johnskiawahseabrook.live5news.com/news/chez-fish-reopens/58524

10 minutes outside the gates at 3966 Betsy Kerrison Parkway. This restaurant had a strong and loyal following for quite a while, and then it closed. It has now reopened and appears to be back in full swing. The parking lot is always packed. Food is wonderful.

3. Wild Olive. http://www.wildoliverestaurant.com/
A favorite already known to many Fodorites. 20-25 minutes away at 2867Maybank Highway. Simply fantastic food and atmosphere. We’ve eaten there several times already.

4. Fat Hen. http://www.thefathen.com/
Again, a favorite already known to many Fodorites. Also 20-25 minutes away, near Wild Olive, at 3140 Maybank Highway. Again, great food. We really like it, but tend to favor Wild Olive.

5. Caliente. http://www.calientecharleston.com/
25-30 minutes away, at 3669 Savannah Highway heading away from Charleston, just past the turn onto Main Road to go to Seabrook and Kiawah. Some of the best Mexican food I’ve had. Starter chips are unique, very fresh and really good. My husband loved the fish tacos. Since it is located on the Savannah highway, it’s an easy, convenient stop for those driving from Charleston to Savannah.

6. Hege’s. http://www.heges-kiawah.com/
5 minutes away in Freshfields Village http://freshfieldsvillage.com/ between Kiawah and Seabrook Islands. Convenient location and nicely prepared dishes. Freshfields Village is easily reached by bicycle from either island, and has other more casual places to eat, including a Marble Slab creamery. Nice treat at the end of a bike ride. There’s also a farmers market there each Monday.

7. Red’s Ice House. http://www.redsicehouse.com/RedsMenu.pdf
2 minute bike ride away, in Bohicket Marina, Seabrook Island. Very good, basic food and very convenient.

The following are two additional places with great reviews, but no personal experience.

8. Maria’s Mexican Grill.
20 minutes away at 2817 Maybank Highway. We’ve heard (and read wonderful reports on the food at Maria’s Mexican Grill) http://www.yelp.com/biz/marias-mexican-grill-charleston. It’s located in a shopping center at the intersection of Maybank Highway and River Road.

9. Rosebank Farms Café. http://www.rosebankfarmscafe.com/Home_Page.php
Again, a 2 minute bike ride away, in Bohicket Marina, Seabrook Island. Can’t believe we haven’t tried this very convenient place yet, but it’s at the top of the list.
