Right on the water and accessible by car or boat. Their website says:
"During the renovation of the historic building, the original brick walls and heart-pine flooring were restored and a scenic glass porch overlooking the harbor was added. History buffs should peruse the framed documents and old photographs in the entry-way. They date to the late 1800's and were found in the attic during renovations. Kids, on the other hand, will surely make a beeline for the giant fish tank filled with colorful creatures."
Monday - Saturday
Lunch: 11 AM - 2:30 PM Dinner: 5 - 10 PM
Favorite Dish: I had a scallop, shrimp and cheese dish which was very rich. I ate all the veggies - salad, mashed potatoes, and a broccoli and squash mix, and the hard rolls, but I couldn't finish the casserole so I asked to take it back with me. The waitress forgot and threw it out. We had bread pudding for dessert, but instead of the light lemon cream sauce I'm used to it was a heavy sugary sauce with strawberry and kiwi fruit garnish. They also have shrimp and grits, crab cakes and herb-encrusted grouper.
the goat island grill is a very good seafood restaurant specializing in south carolina low country cuisine. they offer an excellent seafood selection as well as steak and american fare. a good place to have lunch or diner in downtown georgetown.

We found that there were NO other restaurants open on Sunday night, that we could walk to from the waterfront. They shut the town down and roll up the sidewalks.
The town is pleasant to walk through - the section between Route 17 and the river is a Historic District. We walked from South and James where the marina was four blocks up to the highway.
Favorite Dish: Lucette made some phone calls and eventually found that this places was open. It has the ambiance of a motel restaurant, but it was cheerful.
They had a buffet for $6.95 @. and it was a very good value for the money. I remember there was chicken, salad, vegetables and dessert. Dinner for two was $19.06 including drinks and a tip.
I saw the sign for Tony's famous pizza when we drove through Georgetown, but we'd already had lunch. The reviewer says: Known for their New England style pizzas and subs, this family owned restaurant also serves delicious pastas and salads Monday through Saturday for lunch and dinner.
This is another place that is closed on Sundays.
Another one of those restaurants in an old Bank Building - this one still has the vault and it is filled with antiques.
Dinner Reservations Recommended. We went early and they were able to seat us because we were going to be finished before they needed the table for someone with a late reservation.
Lunch: 11:30 am - 2:30 pm
Dinner: 6 pm - 10 pm
Monday - Saturday
Favorite Dish: I can't remember what we ate, except that it was good. We spent $63.93 for two just drinking iced tea.
Their website says:

"The lunch menu includes daily soups, salads, pasta, and Low Country specials."
On the guidebook recommendation, we walked all the way up to the Orange Blossom Cafe. But it had been sold and was under new management and was closed for remodeling.
Favorite Dish: According to the websites, this is now The only authentic Greek restaurant in the Grand Strand, this restaurant offers an array of delicious dishes including Greek Lasagna and Moussaka, as well as American favorites such as aged ribeyes, fresh seafood, and Italian inspired dishes. They are open Monday and Tuesday for lunch only and open Wednesday through Saturday for lunch and dinner; closed on Sundays.
This was our second choice to eat as there weren't any reviews of the food quality. The sign out front advertised "Low County Cooking". There was a mural on the wall.
Favorite Dish: Bob had a half rack of ribs, which looked good.
I decided to try 'low country' cooking, so I had a shrimp dish with grits(?) and ham. It was a bit salty. The hush puppies were burnt and the Caesar salad had globs of mayo on the bottom leaves. I've decided I don't much care for low country cooking if this is an example of it.
I had peach cobbler for dessert, and that was good.
