Marshside Mama's building has what is known as "character". As we approached the dock I asked our guide if the restaurant had a bathroom; all he would say is "you'd be better off to use the one on the boat!" I took the hint. But the building is interesting in a rustic-sort of way.
Inside there are a lot of dollar bills on the ceiling, but not nearly as many as Tortilla Flats (Feb 16, 2010).
There were 16 of us so we sat outside, with a couple of waiters serving us. After they took our drink orders, one of the waiters said "The other table has the menu, so as soon as they're done with it we'll bring it over to you." And we all thought "What, there's only one menu?" Well, actually. . .yes. But it is a big one.
So pretty soon they propped "the" menu up in a chair and everybody ordered. I got the shrimp and grits; I am so spoiled by Randy's cheese grits that I almost never order them in a restaurant, but I heard they were good here so I decided to try them. And they were REALLY good. I don't know what they put in the sauce but it was wonderful.
The food was good and the benefit of sitting outside meant we could catch a breeze and enjoy the view.
Later, all relaxed and full of good food, we headed back to Hilton Head. We swapped boats on the way back so Randy and I were in the speed boat. There was a sprinkling of rain when we left the docks, but we soon left that behind. And then the water was "smooth as a millpond"!
Of course I thought of the Titanic, but in this case there was no problem; Captain Cindy had the situation well in hand. All along the way back, the sky kept changing from beautiful. . .to more beautiful.
