|This is the outside patio at See Wee Restaurant. It is a dusty area in front of the sandy parking lot. We ate inside.|
|Our server was a treat... cute and funny.|
|That's Ken holding the basket of hushpuppies while Wayne looks up at the menu posted on the wall behind me.|
In the end, I ordered whole fried catfish with fried green tomatoes, sweet potato fries and yellow squash. Wayne had shrimp. For the life of me, I can't remember what Ken or Nancy ordered but I think at least one of them ordered shrimp too.
Turned out we all left See Wee a little disappointed... I can't put my finger on why exactly. The hushpuppies were good as were the fried pickle appetizer. My catfish was cooked to perfection and my side dishes met my expectation. I think Wayne felt as though he had been coerced into ordering a larger meal than he really wanted and maybe Ken did too. Nancy's dinner was good, I think, but not outstanding.
After the meal, we ordered two desserts that were extremely disappointing: bread pudding that was cold and dry and banana pudding that arrived absent the bananas or vanilla wafers that make it banana pudding.
A larger-than-planned dinner tab after an unpleasant dessert experience just doesn't sit well, I guess.
Tomorrow we're going to the famous Charleston Market Place.
