Growing up fishing, surfing, and playing football in the Lowcountry, Rather Fish owner, Joe Ellis, enlisted in the Marine Corps and spent 8 years serving and working towards a degree. After moving back to Charleston and starting a family, he learned the importance of great customer service while running his own restaurants.

 Looking to return to the work which ignited his entrepreneurial spirit...Rather Fish was born!

What People Say

"Joe and team are awesome - they take care of our lawn on James Island and it looks by far the best it ever has in our 3+ years living here. They are very flexible, easy to work with, do a great job, and I highly recommend them."
