California Dreaming Restaurant

OMG! What a cute place, very busy, and fantastic food. Enjoyed the best Blue Hawaiian, rich and creamy. Try the Whole Fish Daily special– crisply grilled, and very tasty. The crab cakes are excellent, very meaty, and huge. Our server, Jordan, was friendly and helpful with food recommendations. I highly recommend this place for an evening meal along the waterfront.

I came in late after getting to my hotel. This was the only restaurant convenient to where I was staying, so I wasn’t expecting much. I ordered just a club sandwich, and I was pleasantly surprised that it was one of the best club sandwiches I’ve ever had.

Everything was perfectly prepared, and I got ranch dressing to go with my fries. The ranch was unlike most ranches I’ve had and was super fresh with a ton of garlic. This was a wonderful way to end a very long day, and the service was impeccable. I would highly recommend this restaurant, even if it wasn’t the most convenient location for you.

The blackened chicken pasta was everything. So full of flavor. Plenty to fill you up. Reasonable price. The location is so pretty. The river right by. Plenty of windows for an outside view. Also beyond loved the staff. Super kind and engaged. If you’re wondering yes those croissants were everything. The glaze over them will leave your mouth watering. The seafood nachos is also a win, the salmon is very favorable.

The restaurant looks like a castle and had a very lovely view from a table in the bar section looking out over the Ashley River. I was served within 15 minutes and ordered a mahi sandwich with coleslaw both of which were delicious.

The waitress was very upbeat and attentive. Most of the main dishes were in the low 30s price range. The sandwich was only $17. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for their salads also. It was indoor seating as well as some outdoor seating under umbrellas along the water

We arrived right as they opened at 4pm. We ordered the fried crab claws and honey butter croissants for an appetizer and WOW. That’s all I can say, I was so full after dinner but still wanted to order more bread and crab claws. I ordered the shrimp tacos with mashed potatoes and the shrimp are fried, but perfectly seasoned and it pairs nicely with the pickled red onion and slaw.

The mashed potatoes were creamy and tasty. My husband had the shrimp and grits he says was a 10/10, flavorful, the grits were creamy, not gritty. Excellent choice! The young black man with braids who waited our table provided wonderful service, I usually tip around 20-25% and I gave an extra $20 because of how friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable he was about the menu and he made suggestions as well.


Our favorite parts was the outside seating with view of the river with several boats going by. I wish I got a picture of the view.
