Bowens Island Restaurant MENU as of May 2014

The restaurant was packed and I couldn’t find my way to a menu (well, at least not where I would have enough room to set it down to photograph), so I settled for the sign… It gives you all the information you need!

See yesterdays post to see what the fried shrimp looks like… oooooh, too good!!

Catch you back here tomorrow!

Shrimp at Bowens Island Restaurant – Charleston, SC

THIS my friends is the 1/4# (small) shrimp dinner at Bowens Island Restaurant. The fresh, local shrimp in their delicate coating fried to perfection. This isn’t the thick batter that’s fried deep brown, this is succulent and out of this world good… so is the cole slaw… and the hush puppies… french fries are good too (and I’m not a french fry gal). I do wish you had a healthier option to go with the fried shrimp, but if you only go every once in a while its a splurge worth waiting for!

Bowens Island Restaurant is close to Folly Beach in Charleston, SC… check them out! (More details on the post from tomorrow)…

Catch you back here tomorrow!

Gaulart & Maliclet (Charleston Restaurant) Turned 30!


I meant to post this prior to May 4… I hate that I missed this! Darn, darn, darn… Too many sticky notes everywhere with ideas… it’s dreadful when some of the ideas have time limits, ugh!

BUT, we can all wish them a “Happy Birthday” and stop by for something fabulous! What a cool place, it’s where you see many locals as well as people visiting. It’s very cool how you sit with others if you don’t have a large party. Let me tell you, almost every time we go we meet someone so interesting. That makes this place so much fun!

Gaulart & Maliclet (also known as G&M or FAST & FRENCH) has great specials, and if I remember right fondue night is on Thursday! We usually make it there for lunch, the cold cucumber soup is to die for AND healthy… for real!

Check out their MENU, it will blow you away! Too good for words! Check it out if you get a chance!

Bowens Island Views…

Beauty as far as the eye can see… Bowens Island Restaurant… located in Charleston, South Carolina near Folly Beach (about 5 minutes away!) is one restaurant you need to check out next time you’re in Charleston. It’s, well… eclectic? The food is fresh and so tasty, I always get the fried shrimp, (my one splurge) and this is the place to get it!

They’re open from 5-10PM Tuesday – Saturday (CLOSED ON SUNDAY & MONDAY)… we usually get there early and there is a line, but just look at the view (above)… bring your camera, especially if you go near sunset… gorgeous!

This photo was taken on that walk that I’ve mentioned in previous posts… Fred, Charlie (woof) and I were zipping along at a brisk pace while I was trying desperately to sneak in some photos… I love this early morning light, there’s nothing like it!

The Wentworth Mansion is one fabulous piece of architecture! It’s a top of the line bed and breakfast, I haven’t been inside, but need to do that one day. They also have a fabulous restaurant, Circa 1886 for those of you who are interested!  “Travel & Leisure Magazine World’s Best Awards survey ranks locally owned Wentworth Mansion® with top spot in the US for best service and #2 in the world trailing The Peninsula in Hong Kong by just one-tenth of a point!”. Check out their beautiful rooms oh heavens! Some you are able to see a 360 degree view…  check it out, see what all the buzz is about!
