Slightly North of Broad is a Lowcountry bistro that brings together an abundance of local ingredients and thoughtful, expert presentation with a friendly, contagious energy. Here the dining room is a natural extension of the kitchen, a place where culinary skill, a clever, considered wine program, warm service, and conversations meld together. Our local farmers, fishermen and producers are as integral to the food we make as they are to our place in this community.

Great night with great food.

We showed up a little early for reservation and were seated right away. We started with the crab cake and cheese plate appetizers. We moved on to the main courses with shrimp and grits and the grilled swordfish. The shrimp were delicious and the grits were nice and creamy. The swordfish was... read more

I try to eat here every time I visit Charleston. I'm a big fan of shrimp and grits, and the SNOB version ranks high. The restaurant is always busy, so I'm not the only one who loves it! Only complaint - my husband ordered a beer. It arrived in a can and he was asked if he wanted a glass,... More

Great meals for both my wife and me. I had the Filet Mignon. It was served medium with herbed butter and a "blistered tomato" half. I was a bit surprised that the steak didn't come with a vegetable other than the ornamental tomato. I had to order a side of asparagus at $6. OK.I get it. This is Fine dining.... More

We had a wonderful lunch on a Tuesday. The atmosphere was very nice and there was no long wait for a table, even though there was steady traffic. The food was excellent, portions where large and the prices are very reasonable. Our server, Allison was very pleasant and attentive. In fact, you can catch her "moonlighting" on stage at the...

I can only speak to lunch, however this restaurant fit into the average category for me at least in comparison to the other fantastic restaurants we enjoyed in Charleston. Probably the least enjoyable thing to me was how packed it was. Even with a reservation, they had trouble seating us at first and we really felt like we were crammed... More

I have visited this restaurant for lunch on two occasions over the past 3 years. Both times I have been very happy with my meal. Be sure to order the shrimp and grits! Although I have never had a problem getting a table, a reservation is a good idea. I would also recommend wearing some half decent clothes, as this... More

Been there for lunch several times so the menu is probably smaller than dinner. The decor completes the experience. It is usually crowded so recommend reservations.
