Crosby’s Fish & Shrimp Friday’s

Crosby’s has three locations scattered around Charleston, but the Folly Beach location is where all the fun happens. Shrimp boats line the creek and bustle with activity when arriving with a full catch. Tons of shrimp, shark, and fish are unloaded and weighed before being brought into the icy warehouses and distributed between the stores. Local fishermen pay just $3 per day to fish off of their dock, with catches varying from whiting, trout, rays and more with their rods. Lucky cast netters capture shrimp, blue crabs with the occasional fish slipping into the nets as well.

Crosby’s has a strict ethic with capturing and distributing their catch. Their team has multi-point inspections, climate controlled coolers, and a building that is certified by HACCP (Hazard Analasis and Critical Control Points program). It is inspected regularly by the FDA and and DHEC, and they collectively have over 150 years of experience in the seafood industry. Their approach to seafood and their customers is to provide the best quality of seafood without compromising for higher profits or increased sales.

Join Crosby’s Fish & Shrimp on Friday nights for a fun night of live music and seafood on the dock. The family friendly affair is run by the Crosby family and open to the public, beginning at 6pm (weather permitting). Jerry Crosby, owner of the Yellow Cab Company, provides the entertainment with his buttery voice moving through classics easily.

The view is spectacular! Boats are parked alongside of the dock, and the meals are provided with fish and shrimp straight from their latest catch. Melt-in-your-mouth hush puppies, fish stew, crab cakes, and key lime pie are just a few of the options from the food truck conveniently located right on the dock. Beer and wine are also available for purchase.

While you’re there, check out their market for the catch of the day!
