Bowens Island Restaurant, Charleston, SC.
Twenty minutes south of Charleston lies Bowens Island Restaurant, a local gem serving delectable low country seafood in a casual, creek-side atmosphere. The upstairs dining room is where you’ll find fried shrimp, hushpuppies, and Frogmore Stew – a true southern classic. That alone would qualify Bowens Island for inclusion on this list, but we’re not done yet. Nope, that’s because the downstairs level features the greatest six-word phrase known to man: all-you-can-eat oyster tables. Bring friends and order them by the shovelful as y’all take in the scenery. (And yes, that includes the massive piles of emptied oyster shells off in the distance.)Back to top
