Reservations are hard but the upstairs porch is first come first serve. If the weather is nice it's one of the best seats in town.....hard to catch a break in July/August with the heat though.
For lunch head to Butcher and Bee for a sandwich. Or go late night.
Hit the bars on Upper King.

Madra Rua, Sesame, and EVO (pizza) are worth the trek to Park Circle. Well the Rua and EVO are. Sesame has expanded.
What has been listed is a good list. Avoid Market St bars and restaurants and you can't go wrong. If you feel like getting off the peninsula head to Avondale in West Ashley and bou...

All good advice here. The drive to Folly is only long on a summer weekend if you try to head out after 11am. At Folly hit up Taco Boy (Downtown location as well) and/or Surf Bar. Both great spots.
Upper King is a happening spot these days. Just a few weeks ago Bill Murray was hanging around playi...

Have lived in Charleston for 10 years and not a day goes by I don't love it. Might not be great longterm but in your 20's its top notch. Great night life. Great food. Great beaches. ...

Was there this summer. Did one night at Amici's in the North End. Was a little hole in the wall that was good Italian.
B&G Oysters in the South End the next night. I really liked this place. I had the Lobster BLT which was fantastic. ...
| Food and Drink Board|| re: Restaurant Recommendations In Charleston, SC? - JohnSmoltz on 8/11/10 at 8:56 pm|
FIG, McCradys, Oak, Hank's, SNOB, and Cypress are all fine choices downtown.
Not high end dining? Monza for some pizza on Upper King St. or head up to Taco Boy. Always a good time. Juanita Greenberg's is good too.
If you end up on Sullivans hit up Poe's and HomeTeam BBQ.
Want a good beer ...

Final Jared Mitchell update:
Out of the starting lineup and made a guest appearance as the 1st base coach :lol: :lol: :lol:
The Intimidators coach got tossed in the 3rd so they sent Jared to coach 1st. He only let 1 runner get picked off!!...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Jared Mitchell update - JohnSmoltz on 7/19/09 at 1:25 am|
Yes they are.....and not that good but the games are fun to go to. Serious Babes show up. Cold beer. Then there's baseball.......

I used to work at an airport and dont think I can even think of all of them....
John Smotlz (hence the name and best of them all)
Dan Marino (doesnt tip)
David Toms (talked LSU football)
John Elway (nice but kept to himself)
Rich Beem (drunk)
Kirk Herbstreit (tried to keep a low profile)

I too was at the game. J Mitch was the best player on the field. He got hosed on a called 3rd strike.
He had the catch that was in question (was it in the 6th or 7th? Too many High Lifes for $2)
He actually had a really good catch early in the game as well.

| O-T Lounge|| re: Charleston - JohnSmoltz on 3/23/09 at 6:37 am|
Every restaurant listed is good except Hymans Seafood. Worst. Food. Ever. And people line up at all hours of the day to eat that crap. With that said other places worth a try downtown are Justine's Kitchen, Oak Steakhouse, McCrady's, and FIG.
Want the perfect afternoon? Head to Poe's out on Sulli...

Going to Nashville this weekend for a bachelor party and need some good recommendations for a place to eat on Friday night.
Looking for something nice but no one is bringing blazer so don't want something that requires jackets for men. Any good recommendations? Good steakhouse downtown?

Should be able to get Firefly a lot easier now that they have partnered with Buffalo Trace Distillary (?)to produce more of it.
Someone else has put out a Sweet Tea Vodka. Forget who it was but was advertised in last weeks City Paper (An alt-weekly in Charleston). Firefly's biggest goal is to ge...

The weather should be nice so should be a good time to visit.
I always suggest just walking around. Most things downtown are all walking distance or you can grab a rickshaw/pedi-cab pretty easily. Just walking around checking out the battery, rainbow row, The Market (big tourist draw but good fo...
| Food and Drink Board|| re: Charleston, SC Restaurants - JohnSmoltz on 10/3/08 at 5:28 pm|
Yes Hank's is still kicking and doing well.
For breakfast might want to try Hominy Grill. A little off the beaten path of the downtown restaurants and not a greasy spoon type of place but very good none the less.
Another good restaurant is FIG. The chef is a rising star in the culinary scene...
| SEC Rant|| re: Tommy Bowden sould be fired - JohnSmoltz on 8/31/08 at 10:22 am|
The problem with Clemson is that they will still beat South Carolina somehow and the fan base will forget this lose and another season will come forth with Bowden as coach. Been happening for at least 5 years now....
