The Swamp Fox Restaurant was in our hotel so it was a great after dinner drink place. They have local wine made by the Francis Marion Hotel. If you staying near the Francis Marion Hotel and do not want to travel far this place is a place to visit for a quick drink.

In the middle of the King Street shopping arena is the Francis Marion Hotel's Swamp Fox Restaurant. The service was excellent and the food was superb! The manager Rickie Simmons is very personable and if you see Daniel ask him about the license plate :) I will definitely return here as the food was great and the staff made us... More

We found this quant restaurant on Restaurant.com at the Francis Marion Hotel. I had the Shrimp and Grits and it was amazing! We were tempted with a desert menu and settled on something with a Krispy Cream donut in it and chocolate cream sauce of some kind, wow! Do yourself a favor and try this place!

Walked from the visitors center after a tour and waited about 10 minutes in a comfortable lounge for a table. Restaurant is relatively small with a lot of 2 and 4 tops. Brought a restaurant.com coupon for $25 off a $50 minimum. Had 2 drinks, 2 she crab soups, crab cakes, and shrimp and grits. Homemade pimiento cheese and pickles... More

I took my boyfriend here for his birthday. It definitely had a hotel restaurant feel to it. I expected something a little nicer for what we paid (I even had a Restaurant.com gift certificate). Our waitress was very nice. The dining area is small and shares a space with a lounge which can get noisy. Our steaks were delicious but... More

My family had been touring Charleston's historic district and we were very hungry and tired. We stopped at the Swamp Fox around 3 pm for a late lunch or early dinner. The hostess told us their restaurant was closed but we could sit in the bar/lounge area and order off the menu. Other family members arrived and we now had... More

Freshly cooked, lots of it and really good value for the money. Service was great and the Sunday brunch looked really good shame we weren't hungry enough to try it.

We stopped in around 9 p.m. for a light dinner and ended up each ordering an appetizer and 1 dessert to share. Having spent a few days in the South by this time and having already experienced a few variations, we found the "Shrimp & Grits Martini", (shrimp and grits served in a martini glass), to be excellent and the...

Ordered Crab Cakes and substituted grits instead of Asparagus...it was yummy. The crab cakes had came with capers...never had them prepared that way before but it was surprisingly good. The bread was really good too. Staff was super nice and attentive. Will eat here again.
