After a day of stalking alligators, osprey, and other wildlife at the Santee National Wildlife Refuge a girl can work up an appetite. Y’all know I like to eat and y’all know I try to avoid chain restaurants as much as possible, right? When presented with the typical Olive Garden, Outback Steakhouse, or Longhorn Steakhouse restaurants I was desparately seeking something local.
My quest led me to Tubb’s Shrimp & Fish Co. Tubb’s isn’t right off I-95 like the chain restaurants I was trying to avoid. Only a few miles past the mall in Florence, this place was a much better option! Tubb’s is a small, relaxed spot to grab a bite to eat. Obviously it’s a local fav, because it was busy with a steady flow of takeout orders.
One slurp of their she-crab soup and you’ll know why. Or maybe it’s a bite of a piping hot crab rangoon that does it? No matter what the reason is, this savory, perfectly seasoned seafood is on time.
Next time you’re heading up or down I-95 in South Carolina, take a little bit of extra time to visit a local restaurant that’s committed to serving fresh, flavorful Southern seafood. You’ll thank me.
