Lands End Restaurant, a Lowcountry mainstay for over 30 years, is the location of “Dining for a Cause” to benefit Miss Ruby’s Kids on Thursday, April 24. Located at 444 Marina Dr. at the foot of the bridge at Georgetown Landing Marina and Hampton Inn, the restaurant features multiple walls of windows which provide unparalleled views all the way down the coveted waters of Winyah Bay. An acclaimed new management team took over more than a year ago, and the quality and consistency of the food has never been better!
Locals and returning visitors especially love the freshness and diversity of both the lunch and dinner menus. There are the must-trys like the famous seafood platter adorned with shrimp, scallops, oysters and flounder with house cut fries and cusabi slaw, the creamy shrimp and grits with crumbled sausage, the perfectly grilled Certified Angus steaks and burgers and the she-crab soup, made daily. Equally popular are the grilled orange rosemary salmon, the southern stuffed chicken breast, the jumbo lump crab cakes, the cobb salad and the crab cake napoleon.
Everyone’s summer favorite is The BLT. Lands End tops theirs with a house-made tomato bacon jam. Also a coastal favorite is Fish Tacos and theirs sport mahi - fried, grilled or blackened, with house made pico de gallo and jalapeno tartar.
Nighttime specials have especially impressed the locals: grouper, pork, duck, sea bass, prime beef, and more...as pleasing to the eye as it is to the palate. In fact, you can’t go wrong with any item you order from the menu or from the specials. There is truly something for everyone’s taste.
Always a kid-friendly spot, Lands End offers burgers, flounder, chicken fingers, smurfs, shirley temples and more, along with plenty of crayons and coloring pages. Indoor and outdoor seating is available and a spectacular bar area is also noteworthy with the best view in town. A staple at Lands End since its beginning is the Sunday Buffet, which is chock full of salads, hot vegetables and meats, a carving station and a range of desserts from 11-3 p.m.
Lands End is open for lunch at 11:30 a.m., Early Bird (lighter portions) from 3 until 6 p.m., and dinner from 4 p.m. until closing. Reservations can be made by calling 527-1376.
Lands End joins a number of area restaurants in “Dining for a Cause” by offering a portion of their day’s proceeds to support the work of Miss Ruby’s Kids, an early childhood literacy program that was founded eleven years ago. The organization works with two and three-year-old children and their parents/care givers in the home and continues to support the children when they reach school age through the volunteer education mentor program.
Miss Ruby’s Kids looks forward to welcoming friends and neighbors from the community who will dine on Thursday, April 24 to show their support of the program and to thank Lands End for its participation.
