Island First Bite: Poseidon


SERG Restaurant Group, the minds behind Frankie Bones, Wise Guys and Skull Creek Boathouse, have done it again with their new mega seafood hangout, Poseidon. As the revamped Shelter Cove Towne Centre project continues to create a welcoming downtown-style vibe, Poseidon is poised to become a sought after dinner retreat.

Poseidon has something for everyone. The main dining room, covered patio seating and the outdoor NautiBar welcomes 250 diners to an extensive menu that highlights the best of what both coasts have to offer. Maryland-style crab cakes, a variety of oysters, lobster rolls and gulf shrimp only scratch the surface of the menu. New for the SERG Group is the oyster bar. Available for brunch, lunch and dinner, the oyster bar offers a wide range of oysters, shrimp and tartar options.





















For lunch I started with the hot blue crab dip with pita bread. Hearty lump crab and just the right amount of creaminess to create a gooey spread without being heavy. Next, I tried the fried oyster and filet mignon tartar and not only was it beautiful to look at, but it was fresh and fragrant, the filet was tender and the oysters were plump and sweet.  To finish the meal, I tried pastry chef, Katie Schoenherr’s chocolate mousse cake. Three layers of decadent chocolate, two of which are fluffy layers of mousse… if you aren’t hungry after dinner, get it to go. You won’t regret it.




















Upstairs is the expansive Rooftop Bar. The bar, which features a VIP section, state-of-the-art projection screen and a large porch, can fit up to 390 people. If you’re looking for a midweek pick up, head over to Coastal Country Night held every Wednesday night. Cocktails featuring Tito’s vodka, like the signature beverage, Coastal Skies, will be at the bar, New Country Bob 106.9 will be broadcasting live and Powerhouse Gym will be teaching line dancing. Call ahead to reserve your VIP table.


Next door is Coastal Provisions Company, a Low Country retail store. Find gifts perfect for every local, part-timer or short-term visitor. Taking home a little piece of the Low Country is sure to brighten anyone’s home.5

If the SERG group has proven anything, it’s that they know how to deliver a quality restaurant. The unbeatable location, friendly service and quality food are sure to help Poseidon become the new can’t miss restaurant on the Island.
