Looks like an old store because it was one. The building dates back to the 1920s when it was a general store. The Rancourt and Penninger family ran it as such for many years. After closing the store in 1988, Mary Rancourt and her son, Kurt Penninger, reopened it as SeeWee Restaurant in 1993. The restaurant serves Lowcountry cuisine, fresh local seafood and desserts. Entrees are served with three sides which can include collard greens, red rice, batter fried mushrooms, butter beans, sweet potato casserole fried okra, mac-n-cheese, or steamed squash. For starters, there are fried green tomatoes, fried clam strips, fried calamari rings and fried pickles. Don't miss the she-crab soup with a shot of sherry.
The locals love it and visitors from all over the United States stop by SeeWee on their way to Myrtle Beach and Charleston for a taste of Lowcountry fare. Located off Highway 17 North, Awendaw.
