We all visit places for different reasons but one of those reasons is always to take in the local cuisine and in McClellanville you’re talking about SEAFOOD! McClellanville’s history has always been closely tied to the coast and the rich bounties that it produces.  The shrimp boats docked in Jeremy Creek serve as more than just beautiful scenery, they are McClellanville’s major industry, supplying  the area and beyond with fresh-caught white and brown shrimp from the Atlantic Ocean. Clams, oysters, crabs, and fish are also locally harvested from the abundant waters of the Cape Romain Wildlife Refuge and Bull’s Bay (known for it’s world-famous oysters).  These delicious catches are seasonally available in McClellanville at restaurants, seafood markets, and catered events.
