We go often. Have not had a bad meal. The prices are quite reasonable. They serve meat and fish dishes, but also serve vegetarian dishes.

My husband and I had lunch at the one in Charleston based on my search for a restaurant with gluten-free menu items. All sandwiches can be ordered on Udi's GF bread.

It's a small restaurant, and parking is tough, but well worth it! I had the Portabello burger and it was soooo delicious! I would go back frequently if we lived there!

I have never been disappointed in the healthy and creative menu at Five Loaves (mt. Pleasant). I love the soup sampler and the way the dishes are marked gluten free, vegetarian, etc. Great for dinner as well as lunch.
