Fresh seafood and comfort food are easy to find in Georgetown. Just stroll down Front Street in the Historic District and smell the delicious aromas coming from the kitchens up and down the street. Here are a few to check out:
The River Room, a city mainstay, is located on Front Street along the waterfront. A casual, drop-in restaurant, it offers lunch and dinner with dishes like shrimp and grits, fresh fish, steaks, fried seafood platters and more.
Thomas Café, operating since 1933, offers daily specials, sandwiches and traditional Southern dishes.
For a totally different dining experience, check out Hopsewee Plantation, a pre-Revolutionary War plantation home that offers tours and well as lunch from 11 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, unless the property is closed for a private event. Be sure to check if it's open before you make the drive out to the plantation.
Root uses local produce, seafood and meats to serve up great American dishes for lunch and dinner in its stylish dining room.
