Charleston, charleston restaurants, Food Critic, Foodie, Restaurant Review, Sullivan's Fish Camp
I think the biggest surprise of my last trip to Charleston was Sullivan’s Fish Camp. It has been on Sullivan’s Island forever, but we had never tried it. We spent the evening at the beach, watching the sun set and the waves rolling in. As darkness fell, we walked over to Sullivan’s Fish Camp for dinner. We sat at the bar. This dimly lit restaurant has dive bar feel with dark wood accents, and vintage fishing decor. We were quickly seated at the bar and made immediate friends with the bar tender. She had great recommendations about both food and beverages so we picked her brain before making our decisions.
To start off the evening we ordered drinks: The Deckhand, a delightful blend of flor de caña rum, yellow chartreuse, lime, and strawberry shrub. and the Cap’n Sully’s G & T, and a dish full of cold, fresh oysters. I love oysters. The briny, salty liquid with a dash of lemon juice and the tangy Mignonette. Side note: oysters are so, so good for you and provide so many essential minerals that our bodies need! Give me all the oysters!
We followed this with the Truffle Parmesan Fried Shrimp. The crispy seasoned shrimp melted in your mouth and when paired with the cool roasted garlic aioli it was truly delicious. The star of the evening was the Fish Sandwich. Sounds anti-climactic I know. But every bite was a mouth explosion of flavors. The fresh jerk rubbed mahi, milk bread bun, mayo and peach chutney was a brilliant combination and the recipe for the perfect sandwich.
It was such a relaxing evening. Enjoying all the delicious food, chatting with the friendly bar-tenders, and spending time with my best friend. Sun-kissed, completely covered in sand and smelling like the ocean. Could anything be any more perfect?
We ended the night with a cutie little soft-serve. Who can resist?
