Now, I had always heard of Isle of Palms and thought it sounded exotic, so we decided to visit while in the area. Isle of palms is essentially on the other side of Charleston from Folly Beach. You can see by the map the proximity. Isle of Palms is very much the way I imagined it, actually it's nicer. Beautiful beach, no clutter of McDonalds, WalMarts, or outlet malls like most vacation destinations. We really relaxed and enjoyed ourselves. When it came to food though, we really lucked up when we found Acme Lowcountry Kitchen.

I had an amazing Seafood platter with Shrimp, Scallops, Flounder, and a Crab Cake. This seafood was so fresh and tasty, but I have to tell you one of my favorite parts of the meal... the sides. Usually most seafood joints just pile fries and hushpuppies on your plate, but Acme goes a step beyond and above with their sides. Nothing short of amazing.
Field Peas and grits were the sides I chose. I went with the unadorned creamy, buttery grits. Oh, were they ever good. The big surprise however were those field peas. These peas flavor and consistency of somewhere between a balck-eyed pea, a brown bean, and a Carolina Boiled Peanut. Man oh man, I loved these peas.
If you dine here and have the seafood, just know they have dozens of combinations and varieties of seafood fixed in many different ways. Other wonderful entrees, appetizers, and their amazing sides make this a wonderful dining experience. Please don't forget the grits and the field peas, you'll thank me personally. Be sure to visit Isle of Palms when in the area, and make a trip to Acme Lowcountry Kitchen, you'll be glad you did, and tell them RouxBDoo sent you.
