        I live at Wild Dunes and eat at Morgans Creek Grill at the Isle of Palms marina quite often. They do a very good job with fresh seafood. Happy hour is 4 to 7 week days as long as you sit at the bar, either on the first floor or upstairs. Appetizers are half price and beers, wine and cocktails are reduced price. The mussels (only available on the first floor) are to die for.
        In season they have an oyster roast on Saturday afternoons in November, December. Usually have music on weekends. Good Spot.

        Stayed here April 18 2011. The transient rate was increased April1 to $2.00 a foot. I had checked the price on the websites after I checked in… it was to late to move to the next marina…and they were still showing $1.50 a foot.

        The dock boy was rude when I showed him the print outs and wished me a good evening.

        A place to avoid

        Isle of Palms Marina – always a great stop when coming back from Georgetown. Morgan Creek restaurant has only improved and now has outdoor dining, along with their full upstairs covered deck or indoor areas. The meals only get better every time we go! So much to do at IOP Marina – several rental places for wave runners, kayaks, or stand up paddle boards. The beach is a short bike ride away and facilities are in great shape.

        The Isle of Palms Marina (about mm 456) has reduced their transient rates to $1.50/ft. The rate is stay in effect probably until Memorial Day. They also have a Boat US fuel discount. Price was $3.77 for diesel today. It is a small marina with floating docks. Very nice.

        We needed to wait around for a new air handler in the Charleston area, and wanted to get north of Charleston Harbor. Called Isle of Palms to make a reservation, but they told us they were full. When we explained our predicament, the dockmaster told us to come up and he would find a place for us somewhere. We stayed there 3 days having a new air handler installed and getting the system flushed. The ship store and deli were excellent and we had no problem provisioning and even ordered lunch from the deli, which we ate at the dockside tables. We had dinner at Morgan Creek Grill and listened to a live blues duo while we looked out over the boaters coming and going. A nice family atmosphere.

        Haven’t stayed at the Marina, but have docked at the Morgan Creek Restaurant (at the marina) all the time. It’s got about 7 boat slips for the restaurant and good food.

        Isle of Palms Marina. This marina has become our marina of choice for the Charleston area. It is city owned and is a busy place with lots of fisherman using the ramp. It can be somewhat noisy. Limited transient dockage. Wi-fi is free, and an excellent marina store with everything a cruiser might want. Good eating choices nearby.

        Marina personnel are very friendly and helpful. Current is not as much of a problem here as at other marinas in the Charleston area but you do need to pay attention. Great restaurant on site. One of the best Sunday brunches in the area.

        Isle of Palms Marina is OK if you can get a berth inside, as the face dock gets rocked, even tho it is in a No Wake Zone. Friendly enough, good heads and showers, a large convenience store, and the restaurant nest to it is very good indeed.|

        We stayed at Isle of Palms Marina 9-13-07 to 9-19-07. Staff very nice and accomadating like the willingness to take us to the grocery store. A restaurant on site called Morgan Creek Grille is excellent. Half price apps and drink specials weekly. The bike trails are excellent and Poes restaurant on Sullivans Island is a short 5.5 mile bike ride.

        Good Afternoon Claiborne!
        We have just made reservations to do a one month stay-over at Isle of Palms Marina for next month as we continue our gradual north-bound journey to Baltimore Harbor. We will continue to use your recommendations as we head north thru SC,NC, VA & MD.
        We are looking forward to our stay-over at Isle of Palm and don’t think we will be disappointed based on the great hospitality when making our reservations.
        Thank for your help to make our north-bound maiden journey safe and pleasurable!

        Isle of Palms just north of charleston on ICW. ($2.00 a foot) Earlierir in the year they were working on rebuilding bulkheads and docks but it seems to be almost all completed. Great dockhands. Cable and wifi at docks. Very clean and well appointed showers to include a Sauna, yes a sauna. They have the nicest ships store for many a mile. It includes a deli, TV viewing area, boat stuff, wine and cheese stuff, general groceries, souveneirs, and nick nacks. Restaurant on premises with great food and one of the nicer views on ICW. $4.00 Happy hour appetizers, make sure to try the fried portabellas with blue cheese dip my gosh they are great. It is also a fairly well protected place to sit out bad weather. Seriouosly a very nice little marina to stay at with an exceptional restaurnat and view (also not too bad prices). Call ahead to reserve a spot in season though!

        Cruising News: We just finisned laying-over our boat for 5 weeks at Isle of Palms Marina,SC(ICW Mile Marker 457). Outstanding service, support and facilites. Best staff I have ever experienced in my 35 years of boating. The Marina just finished a major face lift. The on-site restaurant “Morgan Creek” is worth the stay as well. Need anything, Dockmasters Chase & Ryan are a first class act in customer service! Nothing too fancy, just good ole Southern hospitality!!!
