Fodor's Review

At first glance, the odd name appears to refer to this waterfront restaurant's exterior, topped off with a shabby screened-in porch. In actuality, the Richard and Charlene was a trawler that slammed into the building during a hurricane in 1989. But looks aren't the thing here—it's all about the food. Located in the old village of Mount Pleasant, the kitchen serves up Southern tradition on a plate: boiled peanuts, fried shrimp, and stone-crab claws. The best option is the most expensive: the mixed seafood platter with fried flounder, shrimp, oysters, and scallops. Get here early, as the place closes by 8:30 Tuesday through Thursday, and at 9:15 on Friday and Saturday night.
