AOL Travel Editor’s Review

The Wreck, as locals call it, serves some of the best fried seafood we've ever had in our lives. Hidden away down a dirt road by Shem Creek in Mount Pleasant, it's a bit of a trick to find. Don't expect a traditional restaurant, either—the Wreck is housed in an old bait warehouse. Locals sit at plastic tables eating boiled peanuts and waiting for platters of delicately fried scallops, shrimp, oysters and flounder. You'll see businessmen in ties sitting next to truckers in greasy John Deere caps; it's that kind of place. Finish with a dish of banana pudding.
