Here's what people are saying about Bowens Island"Rented the dock space for a rehearsal dinner and had a blast. The staff was great and so was the food. Great place for a more laid back event. And if you get the right night the sunset is awesome."
- Tyler H."There is a reason there is a line out the door in season...it is fun, a local's favorite and great food. You feel like family....off the beaten path and one fun funky place."
- C. Hunt"This place is true lowcountry. The food, atmosphere, and view have been able to survive all the development of the area and has become a wonderful rarity."
