Charlie Brown Seafood This family-run seafood business in North Charleston got its start as a roadside crab-selling operation. Today, they still have an abundance of crabs pulled fresh from the water. They’ll season and cook them right there, too – choose their famous Jacksonville style garlic crab or have them fried. Fish: from croaker and mullet to flounder and red snapper – whatever our local fishermen are catching! The kitchen cooks up clams, catfish, shrimp, and most everything else. And grab a bag of oysters – singles or clusters. They will have new and upcoming specials – right now you can get fresh or cooked conch!
