Rice Paddy Restaurant


A Low-Country Drive: South Carolina

There’s something particularly romantic about South Carolina’s low country: roads lined with moss-draped trees lead to tiny coastal towns, where there are plenty of places to try the region’s famed oysters. From Charleston, head north for 40 miles on Highway 17 to the fishing village of McClellanville, stopping at T.W. Graham & Co. Seafood Restaurant (lunch for two $35) for a lunch of fried oysters. And in Georgetown, the Rice Paddy Restaurant (dinner for two $92) is known for its oyster pies. Twenty miles north is Murrells Inlet, where bivalves come steamed or on the half shell at the Inlet Crab House Restaurant & Raw Bar (dinner for two $61). —Sandy Lang
