Although it was quite a distance from our hotel, we are glad we took the time and chose RB for a weeknight dinner. Sy was our server and was very professional and friendly. We enjoyed freshly caught shrimp, tilapia and sides. I'm not really a fish eater, but the tilapia was the best I've ever had. It was moist and... More

Good, waterfront seafood restaurant. Seating is focused on you having a good view of Shem Creek and there is also a dock you can walk out on from RB's. Also has ample, free parking.

Stopped for lunch. Easy parking, beautiful view and enjoyed some wonderful fried shrimp and cole slaw. She-crab soup a little below what I've had elsewhere. Fine ambience and good service.

Our family of 4 (2 adults, 11 & 9 yr old) ate dinner here during our spring break. 2 entrees (each with sweet tea), 2 kids meals and an appetizer cost $100+ not including gratuity. Food was amazing...view was awesome (we sat with a view of the water). Service was ok. Waiter was slow clearing plates and refilling drinks. There... More

We had not been to the Charleston area for years and were surprised at how it has grown. The hotel where we were staying recommended RB's and so we decided to try it as none of the places we were familiar with were around anymore. The parking lot was so full, but we squeezed into a place. Had to wait... More

My sister wanted to go someplace different for one seafood. I took her to R'Bs for some good seafood The waiter Jason was very friendly and attentive. The lunch portions were small but filling. We enjoyed everything. THe oyster Rockefeller, no crab cakes were a favorite with the strawberry daiquiri:)

Just finished a nice lunch @ RB's. I've eaten here many times and the seafood is really average, but the location is great. Sitting on the deck watching boats, pelicans and kayaks is a great way to spend lunch or dinner. The food is typical seafood and pretty much average, but it's a nice location.

I was referred by staff at hotel that this was best seafood in area.... ahhh, it was fine, but nothing special. View was nice, but I sat looking at the restaurant across the waterway that was packed (this one only had a couple people)thinking I should have gone over there!

We stopped here for lunch and we enjoyed the water view. However we were disappointed with the service. The food was good but the meal is also made by having a server that is engaged with the patron, and ours wasn't. He did the basics but not much more. This is a good place to eat but hopefully management will... More
