The Fish House Restaurant Review

: The Fish House takes the old southern fish camp restaurant genre and gives it a veneer of worldly spice and polish. The kitchen applies both basic and creative cooking techniques to hyper-fresh fish and seafood. If you have a hankerin' for a platter of fried or grilled fish and shellfish, you won't be disappointed. But you can also get pecan-crusted snapper, and calamari with a chutney dipping sauce. Expanding on the concept of the "raw bar," there's also a sushi menu. Grits A Ya-Ya is a variation on the low-country shrimp and grits theme and offers shrimp, bacon, spinach, mushrooms and cream over smoked Gouda cheese grits. Save room for the tart Key lime pie or the whisky-soaked Hawkshaw bread pudding. The Atlas Oyster House next door, owned by the same people, serves up its namesake bivalves in a range of preparations.
