Description: 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.

“Noisy and crowded but great service and food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

This was my fourth trip to Charleston but my first visit to this restaurant. It was recommended by my girlfriend who is a resident of Charleston.
The tables are squashed pretty closely together but everyone is friendly and it is not uncommon for cross table talk to happen.
The service is professional and friendly and the food is divine. The wine list is pretty comprehensive and the menu is a good representation of Low Country Food. If you are looking for a friendly, elegant restaurant to complete your day wandering the gorgeous historic district, this is it.

“Sweet ambiance, good service, wonderful food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

This was a nice dinner out for us on our one night in Charleston. Very attentive service, bordering on overwhelming, but we loved the interior and although packed, it wasn't noisy. Excellent wine selection with a decent number of by the glass options. We had a seafood entree and our waitress recommended several small plate options to avoid the over-full two entree feeling. Thus we has room for a split dessert which was terrific and made in-house. Only quibble: one unisex toilet which under-served the dining room and impinged on a nearby table. Not elegant!

“Low Country Cooking At It's Finest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

The food & drinks were excellant. I would highly recommend the Maverick Shrimp & Grits. True Low Country cooking. Service was great. The restaurant was very crowded the night we were there and the noise level was a little high but not unbearable. I would definitely go back.

“Third Time is a Charm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

This is our third visit to S.N.O.B. It all started with a recommendation from a family member ( a local). Every visit has been consistently good. The menu is not extensive, is a bit foodie-ish, but still great. There are enough choices for most people. We find the portions to be generous and fairly priced. Our shrimp and grits dinners included at least a dozen shrimp in each portion. Dessert is not always a choice for us, but the banana cream pie called and answered. It was well worth it.

We will return!

“Special Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

A special birthday requires a special dinner, and SNOB did not disappoint. We have eaten at SNOB before, a Thanksgiving dinner being the most memorable, so SNOB was a must for my celebration dinner for two. The minute you step into the restaurant you know you will have an exceptional experience, and it continues with the reception, the walk through the dining room to your seat and then the dinner service. The space is quiet and serene, encouraging the full enjoyment of dining well.

Two glasses of good bubbly and we snuggled to peruse the menu. After some negotiation, we settled on a salad each. My sweetheart ordered the caramelized pear, pistachio and blue cheese salad, while I settled on the beet, spinach and goat cheese salad and then switched at "half-time". The bread basket included small squares of cornbread, which went beautifully with the salads. We were tempted by most of the menu but finally settled on the the sauteed duck breast with butternut squash custard (ethereal) and I ordered the night's special Tilefish served with tiny nuggets of roasted sweet potato, all perfectly sauced.

Although we were tempted by the dessert menu, we resisited, not because we were strong, but because there wasn't any truly decadent chocolate option. We sauntered out into the rainy night fat and happy.
