Acme Isle of Palms Highlights

The Menu

Acme on Isle of Palms offers a mouthwatering array of Lowcountry cooking at its finest. You can indulge in breakfast, brunch, and dinner here, or relax at their welcoming bar while sipping an incredible craft cocktail. Start your day the right way with one of their omelets, eggs benedicts, or a Southern favorite like biscuits in gravy. If you want to sleep in after a long day at the beach, head over between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. for brunch, where the menu has everything on it from fried green tomatoes to breakfast hash.

Dinner is the highlight of Acme on Isle of Palms, and it is nothing short of fantastic. Start your meal off with one of their delicious starters like gouda grits fries or hushpuppies. Seafood is the specialty at Acme, and there is plenty of it on the menu. Locally sourced shrimp, fish, scallops, and oysters come in a variety of preparations that pair well with one of their sides like collard greens, coleslaw, or truffle mac and cheese. We recommend trying one of their 10 different shrimp and grits dishes (a South Carolina Lowcountry favorite)!
