My wife had peel and eat shrimp that was local caught and thought it was the best she ever had.The beef I had was done just right and the creamy grits were real good. Not impressive from the outside but... More

This place was only a couple of blocks from where we are staying so we walked over for dinner. We got there about 4:10 and dinner wasn't served until 5. So we had a drink out in their lounge area and perused the menu. We moved into the dining room for dinner. Their seafood is mostly local. Lots of excellent... More

Entertaining friends on vacation! Had a great time at Acme. Wine was half priced and our food was on point. Garrett, our waiter, was hilarious and we all had a great time! Sooo glad we chose to come here.

Perfect spot for a late lunch after visiting the beach. I love their shrimp which is locally caught and prepared perfectly. I was greeted warmly by the hostess who seated me outside on a beautiful day. I had excellent service from Garrett this past Saturday Feb 18th on what I understand was a very busy day.

One of today's specials was Tilefish with PepperJack Grits and Fried Okra. The fish was topped with a green tomato chutney that accentuated the tilefish to a T. May have to go again during... More

This is an awesome place to enjoy the beach atmosphere, fantastic food and service. An employee at the place we stayed recommended Acme, not only did we enjoy my Birthday breakfast. We went back the next morning. Meaghen, Jessika, and Shannon were awesome servers. I will be going back even if it is for a day trip from Columbia to... More

Food was terrific. I had fried shrimp and my wife had the barrel fish. Everything was prepared to order. Desserts are all made in house and were outstanding. Garrett was our server and did a great job. Very attentive but not over attentive. Super personality. Will be being a customer on a more regular basis.

Thank mculbertson6828
