Authorities said the suspects were wearing ski masks and armed with handguns when they entered the restaurant on Sams Point Way on Lady's Island at about 10:30 p.m. and demanded money, Sgt. Robin McIntosh said in a news release.

The men ran with an undisclosed amount of cash and were last seen heading toward a nearby S.C. Bank and Trust branch. There were no injuries.

The suspects were described as black and wore black shirts, blue pants and gloves, McIntosh said.
