Overall Rating: 4.25 out of 5

I feel it’s important to start this review with a confession: I don’t eat seafood, but I enjoy eating at seafood restaurants. That probably doesn’t make sense, but I’ll explain. Those eateries typically serve good burgers, steaks, chicken tenders, and other menu items offered specifically for land lovers like me.

Many of my family members, including my wife, love seafood, such as fish, shrimp, oysters, and scallops. I’m happy to join them for dinner as long as I don’t have to eat any of those dishes.

I visited Beamie’s, located at 865 Reynolds Street, by myself because my wife, Rebecca, a teacher, was exhausted after finishing another school year. The restaurant wasn’t very crowded, so I had my choice of tables, and my server greeted me promptly. I decided what I wanted to order before I went, so I didn’t have to spend time perusing the menu.

I ordered the Philly cheesesteak sandwich with a side of hush puppies, which have always been one of my favorite foods at seafood restaurants. My food, which was delicious, was served quickly. I’ve always liked the laid-back vibe at Beamie’s, so while I ate alone, I enjoyed a very relaxing meal.

I’ve eaten at the restaurant, which has both indoor and outdoor seating, many times. It can get crowded, but it’s never very loud, making it a great location for business meetings.

I would say the prices at Beamie’s are reasonable and comparable to those of other restaurants. At Beamie’s, I paid $13 for the Philly cheesesteak. I also like Old McDonald Fish Camp, which doesn’t offer that meal, but it does serve chicken strips for $14.99. I’ve tried the same sandwich at TBonz and Carolina Ale House, neither of which is a seafood restaurant. TBonz charges $13.99, and Carolina Ale House charges $14.99.

I’ll probably never like seafood, but as far as seafood restaurants go, I think Beamie’s is one of the best.
