Harold's Country Club: Saturday Steaks, Pickled Eggs
On the way, came across Harold's Country Club in Yemassee, SC.
They invited her for a post-golfing beer at their country club on Fulton Street. Naturally, she accepted!
Um, their country club? Just a street-level garage with the door open, some folding chairs, an astroturf rug (if I recall correctly -- I might just be making that up) and a cooler of cold, cheap beer.
Beautiful. Sybil had a great old time.
So I especially love it when a shacky enterprise refers to itself as a country club.
This one has a big jar of pickled eggs on the counter, like a lot of southern roadside spots, but in true lowcountry fashion, there's a difference:
They put bay leaf in their pickled eggs.
Love their barroom. There's a warren of dining rooms in the back set up with vinyl-backed chairs and cafeteria tables for their Saturday night steak dinners.
Reservations required, 6:30 and 8pm seatings. You call ahead and let them know how many steaks your party will be having, and how you'd like them cooked.
This steakhouse/gas station can also handle your bait and tackle needs.
(Unless they're eggs in a pickling brine.)
