The Wreck of the Richard & Charlene
The Wreck of the Richard & Charlene Review
At first glance the name appears to refer to the waterfront restaurant's look, 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. Know that it closes by 8:30 Tuesday through Thursday, and at 9:15 on Friday and Saturday night.
