Savor the Flavors of Shem Creek

Food Tours

Shem Creek, the bustling restaurant hub of Mt. Pleasant, just across the harbor from Charleston is definitely one of the charms of the Lowcountry. Aligned by a brand new boardwalk and panoramic views of the creek and harbor, Shem Creek offers one of the best places to get a glimpse of a working waterfront of shrimp boats and commercial fishing. This tour highlights the history of Shem Creek and old Mt Pleasant. Guests will visit three creekside restaurants to enjoy a curated cocktail at each stop paired with a taste of Lowcountry cuisine, closely tied to the surrounding saltwater.

One-of-a-kind Experience

Even though Shem Creek has been a Charleston area “must see” for decades, Bulldog Tours is the only tour company to offer a culinary history tour of this scenic destination.

Eat Like a Local

It doesn’t get much more local than this experience. The shrimp served on this tour was likely unloaded from a boat docked a block from the restaurant. The menu for this tour includes seafood at each stop.

Make a memory

Creek and marsh wildlife sightings are one of the things that makes this place so special. Guests are encouraged to take pictures, and if you want, bring a lock to leave on the boardwalk railing.
