Shem Creek Bar worst meal

Recently my wife and I dined at Shem Creek Bar and Grill in Mt Pleasent, and it was perhaps the worst meal that we have ever experianced. We arrived at about 2:30 PM, after a trip to the beach. We ordered a combination seafood plater of shrimp and oysters. When the food arrived there were five small shrimp and five overcooked oysters the size of marbles on the plate. the french fries were greasy and soggy and the hushpuppies consisted of three the size of marbles. When we told the waitress that we had asked for crisp french fries,, she rolled her eyes and walked away.
Shame on me for not listing to the Chowhound advice of not ever going to Shem Creek area for food.

  1. We go to Shem Creek for the cocktails and the view.

    Next time try Red Drum on Coleman. They have great Sunday brunch.
