The Wreck -- Mt. Pleasant, SC
Does anyone know if The Wreck in Mt. Pleasant, SC is primarily a lunch/dinner place or does it do breakfast too?
Unless it's changed since last I visited, The Wreck is open for dinner only.
I would rate The Wreck this way:
Atmosphere (or anti-atmosphere as the case may be): Not to be missed.
Food: Limited menu, but they do fried seafood well. I also like that they include both hushpuppies and fried grit cakes with their seafood plates. Skip the she crab soup. Their version is thin and bland.
Price: Higher than you'd expect for a place where you order by circling your choices with a pencil on a paper menu.
In summary, I think The Wreck, as a local institution, is definitely worth seeking out once. Beyond that, repeat trips are open to debate.
It is what it is. Rather than get some no-body tourist-centric fried clap-trap (plenty of those--see Shemp Creek or downtown) it is where the locals all go when they have a penchant for what many of them were raised with. Correct about the prices, higher than what you would expect.
Gotta love the location though. An American original.
After a day of kayaking, being not real clean but real hungry, we luckily managed to find The Wreck - not an easy task but well worth the effort. Not elegant (and neither were we) but the food was great.
