Terrific lunch on St Helena island. Bill is not only a great chef, he's a steward of the Gullah culture. Loved meeting him and eating the real thing. Worth going out of your way!

We've passed by this little restaurant many times since visiting the Sea Islands, but recently decided to stop by. We rarely see other cars there (which is one reason we were hesitant) and were the first diners in the restaurant on the day we went....More
