Sullivan’s Fish Camp Gives Off Hip 1970s Sailboat Vibes Near the Beach

Tour the newest restaurant to open on Sullivan’s Island.

Charleston hospitality group Basic Projects (Basic Kitchen and Post House) will open its latest project Sullivan’s Fish Camp on Tuesday, May 17. The chic new seaside restaurant is located at 2019 Middle Street, on Sullivan’s Island, in the former Sullivan’s Seafood Restaurant spot. Prime time reservations are already going fast to those curious to try out the menu of fish camp classics, like peel-and-eat shrimp and fried seafood baskets, paired with higher-end offerings, like lobster rolls and tuna tartare with bone marrow.

The stunning updated dining room is sure to be the next see-and-be-seen spot in the Lowcountry. Designed by Basic Projects founder/creative director Kate Towill, the interiors are meant to look like a 1970s sailboat. Vintage ocean-themed paintings share the walls old license plates, a big mounted taxidermy fish, and other sailing paraphernalia. Towill also worked with local artists to add touches like the old English pub sign painted by Mickey Williams and South Carolina Department of Natural Resources fishing charts created by Duane Raver.

It’s colorful, hip, and fun — no wonder tables are going fast. Take a look around Sullivan’s Fish Camp here before the opening this evening at 5 p.m.
