Bowens Island Restaurant

1871 Bowens Island Rd.
Charleston , SC , United States
(843) 795-2757

A 60-year-old seafood dive on an island just 10 miles from the city, Bowens is a local tradition for platters of hush puppies, steamed oysters, fried fish, shrimp and grits and Frogmore Stew—a boil of shrimp, corn, sausage and potatoes. The original structure burned down in 2006, but it was rebuilt by the founder’s grandson, Robert Barber, in the same location.
