The Royal Tern, one of the newest seafood restaurants in the Lowcountry, is hoping to fly high with seafood lovers on Johns Island.

The restaurant on Maybank Highway was the very first to be featured in a new weekly ABC News 4 segment called Food 4'Cast. You can catch the segments during Good Morning Charleston each Friday morning.

Meteorologist Emily Gracey's first stop on the culinary tour was just a fifteen minute drive from downtown Charleston.

The Royal Tern is named for a common coastal bird.

Chef David Pell comes with classical training in France and years of experience cooking for diners in the Charleston area.

He and Chef Kyle Kryske are slicing and dicing some signature dishes straight from the raw bar.

The menu features options such as tuna poke, swordfish, and a variety of oysters. There's even a 'seafood tower' for those looking at 'date night' options.

There are also steak, pasta and sandwich options for those who aren't into seafood.

The menu has a variety of price points. The restaurant is open from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. and is located at 3005 Maybank Highway, Johns Island, SC.
