Had a large group for dinner. Wait staff was great!! Food even better! The service was timely even though we had a large group. And the wait staff entertained with a trivia game while waiting on the food so the time went quickly and it was fun. Always a good meal when in Charleston.

This is a fun place to visit after walking the sights in historic downtown. The decor is interesting even if you haven't seen the movie. It is in a refurbished brick building with open ceilings and artfully placed, amusing, fishing paraphenalia The food was good and plentiful. We had the fried fish platter which was hot and tasty. Especially the shrimp and the hush puppies. The waitstaff was helpful. The outdoor patio would have been especially inviting if it had been a warmer day. It was a good place to unwind.

We went twice it was so good. The ambiance is a little too "Gumpy", not a fan of the film but this place should not be judged on that. Portions are hearty, price is reasonable and the food is too tasty for words. Had the BEST crab bisque and I'm a seafood bisque snob. Damn, I should have ordered a gallon of that stuff. Staff super nice and on point.

We love people watching so we stopped in and sat outside. The drinks are cold and the food is good. The selection is huge. Our server must have been having a bad day, they usually play Forest Gump Trivia with you but not this time.

Had the shrimp macaroni and cheese. It was delicious. It's on the appetizer menu but plenty of food for a lunch meal. Good service. Loved the Run Forest Run and Stop Forest Stop signs on table for wait staff service.
