    Heck yes! Would book again!

    I cannot explain how much I loved having Barrier Island at our Kiawah River event. We had thousands of people and these guys delivered the BEST service, hospitality and kindness. They never ran out of yummy oysters adn the specialty oyster with caviar was to DIE for. Would 100% recommend them again and again.
