FOOD.. Can you imagine eating seafood while watching boats come in and out of the marina? At the River Bottom Grille you can do just that. Come by land or come by boat it doesn’t matter. You will enjoy the atmosphere and food in this local hot spot. Cajuns Seafood is another great spot to grab a drink and some oysters while relaxing and enjoying the company of locals. There is so many great food spots in the area that it is hard to name them all. Trowbridges could easily have the best chicken salad sandwich and ice cream in town. While Bunyans is famous for the slaw dog. Head over to Sledges BBQ (Thurs-Sat) if you want great BBQ and my personal favorite Brunswick stew.  Are you looking to impress a guest? Head over the 360 Grille and you will enjoy fine dining atop the renaissance tower. This 4 Diamond restaurant rotates while you dine so that you can enjoy both river and city views.
