Menu had many choices...succotash with fried shrimp was my choice...delicious and unusual and the portion huge. We loved our waitress, Ashlyn. She was very friendly and attentive. We will definitely return.

I'm a little skeptical of really high Trip Advisor ratings, but Acme Lowcountry Kitchen deserves every accolade it's received. We expected there to be a wait at 5:45 on a Friday, but we were shown a table right away. Our waitress, Shelly, immediately impressed us...More

Acme Lowcountry Kitchen specializes in local seafood, if we cannot source it locally it is sourced off the East Coast of the USA! We do not serve seafood from any other area. We of course never serve any imported seafood. We truly believe in supporting American Fishermen and Shrimpers!
