We were in the need of a break from all the hurricane aftermath and potential flooding concerns for out county. So, we decided to go to a restaurant and take photos of what we enjoyed. Hey, this culinary adventure also provides huge stress relieving points!
The recently opened Graham's Landing on Front was the place to be this Saturday evening. Even going around 5:30 p.m. wasn't early enough. The table tops were packed and there was a good wait for seating, however, the staff on hand saw to it you were taken care of. During the evening, as soon as tops were cleared, there were people to fill them in seconds.
Front Street in the City of Georgetown is on a culinary upswing. The current restaurant lineup really is impressive and the folks who operate them should be very proud of what they have to offer.
With that, there's no question why Graham Plummer and his family saw the opportunity to jump in.
Already known for Graham's Landing in Murrells Inlet, Plummer wanted to introduce the fine people in the city to his culinary renditions of tasteful dishes. From pulled pork to steaks to pizza - and yes, shrimp & grits, his plan was to welcome you to his table of food offerings.
For us, the table was filled quick with excellent dishes and there wasn't a frown - or empty mouth - in sight.
The photos will do the talking, but I suggest you try the Grambo's Lowcountry Stew and Grambo's Shrimp & Grits. The stew is tomato based, with chicken and andouille sausage served over rice and topped with blackened shrimp. There's a little heat to it, too. It really is satisfying to the pallet.
The shrimp and grits offering is a well portioned dish. Fresh shrimp and andouille sausage are plentiful with the cream, peppers and onions served over stone ground white cream cheese grits. Every spoonful melted in my mouth and the flavoring was succulent.
Service was awesome as multiple staff checked on each table.
Enjoy the photos below and tell'em we sent you.
Got here around 11:30 a.m. and it's a good thing we did. It was filling up rapidly as soon as we seated. Great lunch specials were on the menu. One was the gumbo - with chicken, andouille sausage & rice - and it was awesome! Seasoned just right with just a little heat for your tastebuds.
The perennial champion was also available - Shrimp & Grits! Always a crowd pleaser. You cannot go wrong with the Seafood Platter. The portions leave you satisfied.
Enjoy the photos!
Wanting some Mexican flavor today, we stopped in at Alfresco's Taqueria Y Cantina and we truly were served some authentic Mexican food!
Located at 816 Front Street, Jenny and her crew work tirelessly to provide a great dining experience. The building is small, however, there's outside dining to accommodate the overflow. And yes, today, there was overflow - even at 11 a.m.
The reason? Well, the food is just that good. Service is attentive and quick. It should be. Alfresco's standards follow through.
Meeting Jenny today was such a pleasure. She introduced herself to us and made sure our meal was great from beginning to end.
Oh, and they have glass-bottled Coke. Hard to find that in restaurants these days. Plus, an assortment of Jarritos Mexican soft drinks. I chose the Mandarin flavor. My first time ever having Jarritos and I loved it.
The soft tacos come in a set of three. And we had one with chicken, one with steak and one with pork. They come loaded. Really are a mouthful.
The gorditas were ordered the same way. Both the tacos and gorditas had loads of flavor. The chicken empanadas were excellently prepared and the rice and beans made the dish wonderful.
Above all, the fajitas nachos were awesome! Loaded with beef and chicken, green, red and yellow bell peppers, onions, tomatoes and drizzled with cheese! This stole the show.
Go see Jenny at Alfresco's Taqueria Y Cantina; located at 816 Front Street, and tell'em we sent you! Enjoy the photos below as much as we enjoyed the tastes.
As soon as you open the front you're greeted with a packed room, busy servers and a barista churning out flavored coffee orders. And this was on a Sunday. That's right, I'm at Coffee Break Cafe on 716 Front Street.
Meghan and Ron Rader never have a slow moment here. The excellent coffee and superb breakfast and lunch offerings are why! And as busy as it was, it seemed all the customers were just happy to be there.
What's great about Coffee Break Cafe is you have this out-of-town experience. The atmosphere, hustle & flow and smells took you to a place that'd be in the mountains. So, it's refreshing to know a place in town can take you to such a place without having to drive hundreds of miles.
The Triple Deuce, pictured above, is plentiful as is it good. A hearty breakfast to start the morning off just right. The freshly baked Cinnamon Rolls with cream cheese icing is a staple point. A crowd pleaser for sure.
And the South Island Omelet! Wow. You get what you pay for. And it's flavorful. Nothing greasy about it!
When Meghan is not in the kitchen helping Ron, she's greeting customers and making sure their experience is wonderful.
And, for that, she guarantees your stop on this culinary adventure of Georgetown, South Carolina, will be one to remember.
Wow. Whether it was the Harborside Chicken (pictured above) or the Giant Meatball, you were sure to be satisfied.
People still ask about Harborside Seafood and Italian. Does it it exist? Is it a myth?
Yes and no. The restaurant is real and the only myth here is a bad meal.
Owner and Chef Chris Mitchel is master in his craft. Tucked away on the harbor where Portofino's and Five Rivers Tavern called home, he's preparing tasteful dishes. The problem is many people still do not know he's there.
We hope this helps to fix that. Harborside is truly a restaurant that should be part of your culinary adventure of Georgetown County. Take a look at the dishes we enjoyed and go visit Harborside Seafood and Italian! They'd love to have you.
With over 35 years of experience Chef and owner Chris Mitchel has a love and passion for food like no other. Chef Chris has a very diverse background in the restaurant industry. Chef Chris is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park NY. After graduating he went on to being one of the youngest executive Chefs in NYC at the largest German restaurant Luchow's. He than owned Seafood, Italian restaurants and Diners. Chef Chris truly loves making people happy through his dishes.
