The Seewee is located
on Route 17 North, a good drive from Charleston.
Keep going. Even when you think you've driven to
far. Eventually, on the left, after miles of
darkness you'll come upon an oasis of light. The
sign out front reads Seewee Restaurant. You've
Seewee would like
folks to try their upscale fish dishes - herb crusted
salmon or blackened tuna. And I'm sure they are
delicious. But Seewee is famous for its basic fried
seafood and that is what I ordered. The combination
platter. Delicately coated and fried scallops,
shrimp, oysters and white fish. Along side a choice
of two sides. For me, greens, and fried green
tomatoes. Started with a bowl of she-crab soup of
which Seewee is justly proud.
It was a chilly
January night and the place was packed. No room to
wait inside, so Seewee built a fire in their outdoor grill
and everyone huddled around. In warmer weather, the
area becomes an outdoor dining room.
