I’m a little late with this announcement as The Islander on Daniel Island has been open for a couple of months but I finally made it over there recently. And a big thumbs up to everyone at The Islander! They are busy and for good reason.
Formerly the location of Queen Anne’s Revenge, they have totally revamped the restaurant and have created a wonderful island vibe with appropriate food and drink to match. There is a great outdoor/indoor bar with patio seating and mister fans cooling the crowd. Holy City Hospitality Group (Rue de Jean, Coast, Virginia’s on King) are the people behind the restaurant and they have turned this property into a winner!
I highly recommend trying the ceviche and the crispy whole flounder. They are now open for lunch which is especially convenient for the employees of Blackbaud and Benefitfocus.

While it is not St. Martin or Puerto Rico, they do have a steel drummer and a blender so what more do you need to escape?
