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 she-crab soup for appetizers; complimentary hush puppies were brought to the table for good measure. For our main courses we each had a seafood platter; both orders were fried with plenty of grease for a kinda messy show. The catfish portion was very small but the jumbo shrimp made up for it. The third item on the seafood platter was fried oysters; we each ate one and left the other four on the plate. The oysters were another hot greasy mess.

We each had two vegetable sides, which included greens, mac 'n' cheese, fried green tomatoes, and fried squash. The vegetables weren't as greasy as the seafood, but they were a little too salty for my taste. For dessert we had bourbon pecan pie, slightly warm, and red velvet cake. The desserts were the best part of the meal; kinda balanced off the salt and grease. If you like a place that still has Coca-Cola and Grape Nehi in glass bottles, or ice-cold Pabst Blue Ribbon, this is the place for you.

One of the joys of southern cafe dining: an all-vegetable plate. Clockwise from left, this one holds fried green tomatoes, sweet potato casserole, mac 'n' cheese, and collard greens.

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.
