Here are some of the best-tasting fried shrimp we’ve had along the southeast coast since the late, lamented Edisto Motel closed several years ago.

A meal at The Wreck begins with a bowl of boiled peanuts. If all you know are ordinary peanuts, these are a revelation. The nuts inside the shell are soft enough to be a good reminder that peanuts are in fact not nuts, but legumes.

The Wreck has never bothered to put out a sign. Everyone just knows where it is. Located in a former bait locker overlooking Shem Creek, it is in fact an immensely picturesque place to eat.
