Wouldn't it be cool to see Rustic Table featured on Guy Fieri's hit show Diners, Drive-Ins, Dives? How about Caffe Piccolo? The River Room?
Georgetown, or #MyGeorgetown as known to social media hashers, has a vast array of choices for this super restaurant-spotlighting show.
For Guy, he has to hear from us! So, why not send him a message about your favorite Georgetown restaurant and let's make some noise in supporting our eateries!
Hmm... Wicked Tuna? Rollin Local? Prosser's BBQ? Milligan's at Belle Isle? Ball & Que? Atlantic House?
Whatever your fave is, drop Guy a line and let's get Triple D in Georgetown! Exposure on a national television show is what all our eateries in Georgetown deserve.

Hey, Eddy. Thank you for the brief but powerful restaurant venture known as Eddy Chacon's Restaurant, located where Land's End used to be.
You and your team provided a great dining atmosphere and awesome dishes.
Although you've decided to focus on Alfresco Georgetown Bistro, please know your second effort didn't go unnoticed.
Very much appreciated!
My first time at Landolfi's in Pawleys Island was really exciting.
Sat outside, but it's not really outside. Covered deck style, with brick outlay (adjustable screen enclosure to keep bugs out) and even a fireplace for those chilly nights.
The most exciting feature I enjoyed was the ringside seat to the entry/exit way for the back parking lot.
Talk about your mad rush. From 5 p.m. until, droves of vehicles were coming to the back lot to acquire a parking space for the evening. Very few people were leaving.
It really was like people were arriving late for school or work, however, they seemed to be super excited to be away from that and arriving here for their reward!
And the take-out business is booming. This place must be good if people bypass certain spots that provide easy take-out to fight for a parking spot just to pick up an order.
With that being said, let's get to the reason I visited... the food.
The hoagies and subs are fresh and flavorful. Portion size is on point.
The pizzas, oh my gosh, are so good. You'd think they would have originated the dish itself. Several unique pizza offerings are available and you can build your own.
Get here early. I mean it. The food is definitely worth its weight in gold.
Look above. That dish is so inviting. The color, texture of food and portion size is superb.
And it was such a rewarding entree. The Seafood Pasta (Penne Pasta with Shrimp, Scallops, Lobster & Crab, Sauteed Spinach in a Seafood Cream Sauce) was exactly what I craved on an evening when I just wanted to unwind and enjoy family time.
The pasta was cooked just right. Shrimp were robust, flavorful and plentiful. Lobster, scallops and crab were also in the dish. You could not go wrong with this special.
My wife had the Grilled Seafood Risotto above (Flounder, Shrimp and Scallops over a bed of Mushroom Risotto) and she was in heaven. Definitely would order again. The fish was cooked to perfection, shrimp were plump and tasty. Scallops melted in your mouth.
We had a tableside view of the marina. The service was spot on.
Could not ask for a better evening at Chacon's of Georgetown.
There is a well-known dish many locals cannot pass up when offered on the menu, or God forbid... a daily special.
That dish? Well, it's shrimp & grits.
Poston's Seafood puts out a really great shrimp & grits, but you have to catch them just right. They are not open all the time to fix that awesome plate of food.
Lee's Inlet Kitchen in Murrells Inlet has a superb shrimp & grits. Eloquently prepared. Seasoned just right. Love the brown gravy. See below.
The River Room in the city of Georgetown has a superb shrimp & grits. This preparation really hits you warmly during the Fall months. That sausage is to die for. Take a look below.
A newly opened restaurant named Chacon's of Georgetown, at the former Land's End location, is putting out a mouth watering shrimp & grits. Check it out below.
I hope that gives you a foundation on where to find some great shrimp & grits in Georgetown, S.C.
If you're a tourist and are wanting to find a huge list of restaurants in Georgetown County, then look no further than South Carolina's Hammock Coast!
This list will satisfy all your taste buds when visiting our area. Oh, and it would not hurt all you locals out there to visit this site and see what you may or may not have tried!
Please, share this post with all you know and help our restaurants gain the well deserved traction they need! Click the image below!
All restaurants have menus. When you are seated, you're handed one. If you want take out, you ask for one. It's how we decide what we are going to actually eat and what exciting dishes are offered to satisfy our taste buds.
In today's society, we live by the swipe. We die by the swipe. Face it, we're swiping by everything at a cheetah's pace to find what interests us. If it's not appealing, it gets passed like a slow car on the interstate.
Some of our local restaurants post their daily menus to Facebook and other social media mediums to attract customers. While having the generic posting in words, it helps to add a photo, too.
Deer in headlights. A photo of an excellent daily special will stop the swiping for a second. That second is key because then the mind wants to know what is that mouthwatering dish on my screen!
Then they read what it is. Chances are it will be liked, shared, favorited, retweeted, etc. The payoff is actually having the person dine in or take out.
So, I recommend all of our Georgetown restaurants add a photo to their daily menu postings. Having a wonderful dish showcased with the daily menu grabs the eyes and mind at the same time. More importantly, some of the more involved specials are done justice with a photo more than words. A picture, may I remind, is worth a thousand words.
The more restaurants sharing daily menus with photos, the more traction among potential customers is generated. Dedicate one person to do this and make it routine, friends!
People eat with their eyes, so give them something to drool over!
This evening at Chacon's is a must for locals and tourists alike.
Eddy's Outdoor Grilling will continue, starting at 6 p.m., and if it's anything like the first, it's going to be totally packed!
The every Sunday event features Ribeyes, Filets or Half Chickens with Potatoes, Corn, Peppers, Pineapple Summer Vodka Cocktail! (The dinner menu is available also.)
I urge all of you reading this to make plans for a great evening tonight and every Sunday night at Chacon's.
