Moe's brings a little style and sun from Southern California to South Carolina. With beach burgers on the menu and truculent monster drinks in fishbowls, summer fun doesn't get any better. The burgers, sandwiches, ribs and seafood are all reasonably priced and the portions gargantuan.

On hot summer days, these chairs fill up quickly with sunbathers so get here early!
