Visited JC's last night and the individual low country boil with crab legs was great. Good quality and quantity. Great service and friendly people.

Love J C's. I have always gotten my shrimp from them and it's just so incredibly fresh and delicious. I had a friend come into town and he wanted to try the low country boil and I am so glad we did! It was absolutely the best!! Highly recommend this place.

While we have bought seafood from JCs ever since they first opened, this was the first time we had lunch at their latest addition. The seating is not particularly comfortable and it seems like it might get hot in the summertime. The single fan that was operational will not cool this entire room. The lunch, shrimp and low country boil,... More

Purchased fresh flounder for fish fry this evening. It was so fresh. No fishy taste and really delicious. Will definitely go back. Called first and got polite answers to all my questions. The young lady who helped me brought the fish out for me to look at before packaging. Very friendly and helpful. Like that all the seafood is local... More

I don't know why I have waited so long to tell those FEW of you who don't know that this is your go to place in Aiken for your fresh seafood needs. Family owned and operated is another plus for me. My personal favorites are their LCB, steamed clams and of course beautiful oysters. Enjoy!

JC carries a wide variety of seafood which he will prepare for you to pick up and eat. We like to call in advance and order crab legs as a group. He has them ready to pick up when we arrive and they're still steaming when we get home and sit down to eat them.

During our annual visit to the Aiken area, we stopped at JC's for the low country boil. We were so impressed last year and have been craving it ever since. Well, this time was even better. Blue crabs are in season so that just added to what was an incredible feast. We as a group of six decided to eat... More

Over the years, JC's has developed into an excellent source for fresh fish and seafood of all types. What makes it a pleasure to shop here is Chris who is a delight to deal with and is a great personality. What I really like is the fact they source most fo their seafood from the Carolinas' coast line.

We stop here every time we are in the Aiken, SC area. There is no real restaurant per se, but some picnic tables in the back. Agree with all the other reviews. The have the BEST fresh x-large shrimp for only $10.99/lb that we take out and cook at home. The Low Country Boil is wonderful with your choice of... More
