SeeWee Restaurant

4808 US 17 N, Awendaw, SC - (843) 928-3609
Daily specials at this old roadside store are chalked up on a board; they can include country-fried steak, whole catfish, Jamaican jerk chicken, Buffalo shrimp or oysters (fried in spicy Buffalo-wing style), and fish stew by the cup or bowl. Frying shrimp, scallops, and oysters is a fine art: have a platter or sandwich with very good extra-large French fries and cole slaw on the side.

"I've been to Charleston, SC two years in a row (visiting relatives who moved down there) and for two years in a row I've eaten at See-Wee. The person who hated it... nuts! Listen, folks, take it from a New York foodie who regularly eats out at the finest restaurants ..."   [Read More]

"Bad, just really bad. There is no art to the fried food at this kitschy roadside cafe. The building and decor look promising, but the food disappoints. The fried beer-battered shrimp are small, tough, and taste like overused cooking oil. I had to scrape the ..."   [Read More]

"SeeWee is worth the 15 minute drive from the beaches (Isle of Palms and Sullivan's Island). Costs are reasonable for today's expanding food and gas prices; dinner and dessert for two was under $50 and we had plenty of food. We had fried pickles and a cup of ..."   [Read More]

"Since making the "Hit Parade" of quaint Southern restaurants, SeeWee has gotten a big head. Prices have gone up, food is OK, but... All in all, since I live in the South and can prepare everything on their menu equal to or better than SeeWee, and I know the $$'s ..."   [Read More]

As you enter you see the old grocery shelves, still stocked with supplies. If you look very closely in the lower right of the picture, you see a stash of the locally-liked soda, Cheerwine.

Frying seafood is a fine art here along the coast of South Carolina.

Chocolate cake with peanut butter icing: this was the last piece, saved for us by the blessed waitress.
