Good Eats! { Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Charleston SC }

I love food photography. No no, I mean I really LOVE food photography. Living here in Charleston there are so many good restaurants and I have decided to take advantage! So last weekend a dear sweet friend of mine and I decided to head downtown for the day. Just us, two teenage girls, a curious seven year old, and my 3 month old golden retriever puppy. What. Were. We. Thinking... Did we have a nice time? YES. Were we totally stressed by the end of the day? Heck YES! We spent the afternoon walking down King & up Market Streets checking out shops & boutiques while I, of course, got some great photos of this amazing place.

We decided to make a pit stop at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. for a late lunch. I have been dying to give it a try and since it is kid & puppy friendly, it fit the part perfect.

The waitress fell in love with our Dexter and he took the opportunity to eat & relax on the dog friendly patio. 

So I decided to start with a Blood Orange Margarita. I must say, it was very refreshing 
& pretty to look at! (PS- you can keep the souvenir shaker for $4 more)

Time for the entree. I decided to go with the Run Across America Sampler because I just could not decide on one thing. I did want a variety so this was the one! It included: Bubba’s Far Out Dip and Chips, Chilled Peel ‘n’ Eat Shrimp, spicy Chicken Strips, Hush Pups, 
and Mama Blue’s Fried Shrimp. 

There really isn't anything negative I can say about my food choice. I am always a sucker for spinach artichoke dip. The hush pups were to die for! The whole platter was ah-mazing. 

The teens both got the All American Cheeseburger, my little one went with the
Holy Moly Macaroni & Cheese Pleez!

The waitress REALLY loved Dexter.. and he was soaking up every bit of her attention.

Definitely will be returning. There are just too many things on that menu that I can not wait to try! If you are ever downtown Charleston nearby, stop in and try them for yourself!
