Our photography group came to the harbor to photography the boats, reflections in the water, and the like. The Sea Basket has many choices of fresh seafood, and it was nice to have a fish sandwich right at the dock

Sea Basket has been in the same location in the Charleston boat basin for as long as i can remember. There's a reason. The food is really good and the prices are reasonable. It's a you order at the counter and they deliver to the table sort of place. It is something of a go-to place for commercial and sport fishermen, especially for breakfast. They have the usual cafe fare for breakfast plus some seafood offerings, all of which are hearty and tasty. For the rest of the day, they have mostly sea food. The best oyster po-boy this side of New Orleans is one of my favorites. They also do great fish sandwhiches and various seafood baskets and of course fish and chips. The fish is all local and very fresh. The also serve a very respectable clam chowder. It ain't fancy but it darn sure is good!

We can't say the food was "bad" - it wasn't. But it wasn't worth it. It's right on the dock and after crabbing, we thought this would be a great place for fish and chips. Since... it's right on the dock. Nope. We ordered a large fish and chips to share, it came with 5 pieces and they were the size of fish sticks. We also ordered a bowl of clam chowder and while it was ok, it seemed watery. Never going again. Lunch was $30 and not worth it.

The prices are high portions are small and the food is ok at best. Clam chowder was watered down. The fish and chips was finger size pieces of fish at a ridiculous price. Never Agian will I pay their prices for poor food quality.
