Opened in 1986, this little gem tucks into a small shopping strip just over the IOP Connector Bridge. Long Island Café underwent a facelift of both its dining room and menu in 2012, when restaurateur Michael Proetto and Chef Ravi Scher purchased the café. On the revamped menu, creamy she-crab soup or Tobey's littleneck clams (from nearby Breach Inlet) make perfect preludes to baked, crab-stuffed shrimp (a favorite from the original menu) and grilled tuna Nantucket, topped with sour cream, capers scallions and parmesan, then glazed under the broiler. Dessert may be a toss-up between two Southern classics: chocolate bourbon pecan pie and hummingbird cake.

- Isle of Palms/Sullivan's Island Best Restaurants: "If you like good, old-fashioned, fried seafood, the tender fried shrimp here is some of the best around. Like the other fried and broiled seafood on the cafe's menu, it comes with two sides."
- Best for Isle of Palms/Sullivan's Island Best Restaurants Because: This venerable IOP café still delivers consistently good food, with its revamped menu and décor.
