Hilton Head
About the restaurant
Focusing predominately on fresh local seafood with a French, Lowcountry flare, Charlie’s is the place for good food, good wine and unforgettable memories all enjoyed in a quaint French country atmosphere.

A Savannah native, Charlie Golson’s interest in the French language and culture took him to Paris. After a long stint in the fast paced hotel kitchens of Washington DC, he was ready to move back closer to home. It was at that time he was able to open up a one room French bistro. The restaurant has grown over the years, but the ‘Green Star’ remains steadfast in offering the finest ingredients the Low country has to offer with a menu that is hand written daily. Resort Casual.

About the restaurant
The original Hot and Hot Fish Club was founded in the late 1700’s by the planters of All Saints Parish. The social club was dedicated to epicurean pursuits; gourmet food, strong drinks and festive times. The first club was said to be on Drunken Jack Island, located just a few miles south from here. Members of the original club described their past time spent on the island as the “happiest hours of their lives.” The Club was dismantled and finally laid to rest after the Civil War. An ever shifting sand bar off the coast of Huntington Beach State Park is all that remains of the original site. The Hot Fish Club today is located in the oldest existing restaurant building on the Grand Strand. Hot Fish Club remains a favorite gathering place today for discriminating locals and is open to everyone seeking Great Food, Great Drink, and Lively Conversation, in the spirit of those earlier revelers. We pride ourselves on our personal service and our desire to satisfy each guest.

Great Restaurant BUT wayyyy too noisy! Acoustic panels would be a welcome improvement! As a few more tables filled in, it got to where we could not hear to carry on conversation at our own table! The food, decor and service was great! Our cocktails were delicious and our server were also very good!

About the restaurant


The ultimate in Myrtle Beach Chophouse dining. Clark’s is comfortable yet sophisticated and soaks up the beautiful Coquina Harbour for the perfect backdrop to delicious dining.

Clark’s offers only USDA Choice steaks. Our awe inspiring 14 oz. New York Strip, 9 oz. Filet Mignon, and Prime Rib are all served charred and bursting with prime aged flavor. Seafood is fresh and local, with a twist of seafood favorites which include oysters, shrimp, scallops and fresh catch of the day.

Our bar menu includes an extensive wine list which features a wide array of wines by the glass. Specialty martinis and cocktails and great cuisine take center stage at this scenic Little River restaurant. Clark’s Seafood and Chop House is at the top of the restaurant list for locals and Grand Strand visitors. Whether you come for lunch or dinner, we’re sure you will come back again and again.
