Bowens Island Restaurant, Bowens Island (near Folly Beach)

What to order: steamed local oysters, shoveled (literally) onto your table. Also try the fried shrimp or seafood platter―regular size or “Big Ol’.” Ask for a bottle of locally brewed Palmetto Amber beer.

The view: Vistas of river and marsh, with sky-filling sunsets. By midsummer, a new dining room (replacing one that burned) should be ready for a Bowens Island tradition: scrawling graffiti on the walls.

What you’ll shell out: $7–$23 for entrées.

Check it out: 1870 Bowens Island Road; 843/795-2757 or bowensislandrestaurant.com
