There’s a new restaurant coming to the location previously used by Chez Fish on 3966 Betsy Kerrison Parkway. The restaurant is called Roadside Seafood Restaurant and is owned by Seabrookers, Richard and Tanya Perrine. The Perrines also own another restaurant of the same name which is located on James Island. The menu will be similar but with some additional house specialties.
Roadside Seafood sources seafood and other products as fresh and as local as possible. It can be prepared fried, grilled or blackened as the customer chooses. The menu will include flounder, catfish, whiting, grouper, shrimp, scallops and alligator tail (yes, alligator tail). The James Island restaurant has received several awards including a comment from the Post & Courier food critic Hanna Raskin that their she-crab soup was the best. Charleston Magazine named the restaurant the best “down home” restaurant in the Lowcountry. The fried shrimp has been named the best in the Lowcountry and statewide.
There will be beer and wine. The restaurant will be open 7 days a week from 11am to 9/10 pm depending on the season.
The owner plans to open sometime in May. Always nice to have new restaurants joining us.
