From snails & grits, naked fish, candied pecan salads, traditional bayou-style jambalaya to flat-iron grilled steaks, black-eyed peas and fruit pies served with fresh cream, Owens Fish Camp is where classic Southern cuisine meets the sea. Succotash and collard greens are available alongside New England style clam chowder and hot boiled peanuts.
Low-country shellfish dishes are a major strength of Owen’s Fish Camp, and the menu also sparkles with unique dishes such as fried dill pickles. Although it’s an eclectic menu that’s heavy on seafood, several well-prepared land based items are available. The predominant culinary theme of all menu items is to severely limit fussy culinary practices and techniques so that the natural tastes and textures of the ingredients are allowed to shine through.
The casual atmosphere of Owen’s Fish Camp nonetheless carries a serious rustic elegance that it pulls off without the usual sense of “trying too hard” that often afflicts those spaces where an attempt has been made to create this ambiance. Guests can enjoy their meals at an outdoor table under the shade of a banyan tree or in the establishment’s indoor dining room.
