The first time I knew of the existence of Shem Creek was when I saw a book written by Dorothea Benton Frank. The name intrigued me.
On Friday, I picked my brother and his wife up from the Charleston airport. Tim had come up with a few places we could eat. When he said one was in Shem Creek, I knew that's where we needed to go.
I called ahead for a reservation, and I went expecting a magical place. I wasn't disappointed. We were seated outside next to the rail with a great view of the creek.
Dinner was delicious, the company was great, and for entertainment we got to see kayaks, boats and dolphins.
If you are in the Charleston, South Carolina area, treat yourself to a fun time at Shem Creek.
