Description: High Steppin' Lowcountry Living. It's a feeling of warmth and celebration that begins the moment you step inside. You'll find it in our gracious, knowledgable servers, expertly prepared dishes and a remarkable cocktail and wine program. From conversation and laughter in our bar to our stylish dining rooms of heart pine floors and antique brick, you'll come to understand true Charleston hospitality. That is, there's always cause for celebration - of our neighbors, our food and drink and each other. It's our great pleasure to share it with you.

“Tremendous Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

Came for dinner and had a truly tremendous time. Appetizers were great - picnic plate for sharing was fun, calamari was innovative and delicious, Kale caesar salad was a great twist on a standard dish. Main course was equally good -- halibut excellent, swordfish more tender than I've ever had it. Had sorbets and fried apple pie for dessert -- good. Bread was fantastic -- a baguette as good as in Paris with butter to match -- so hard to find in the USA. Service was impeccable - friendly and always attentive. Cocktails were fun. Wine suggestion was great - had a beautiful Poilly-Fuisse. Our favorite meal in Charleston - above Husk and The Grocery.

“Much like Charleston, this restaurant thinks a lot of itself”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

While the wine menu is extensive, and the food locally sourced- I felt that the overwhelming presence if one dish meals- and a lack of true variety are holding this place back. Don't get me wrong- the food tastes wonderful, but at $35 a plate, I shouldn't be hungry when I leave, and I should be able to differentiate between the ingredients.

“Delicious meal with friendly attentive service near waterfront.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014 via mobile

Amazing fillet mignon, halibut, lamb chops, mussels. Very friendly and casual feeling, yet also elegant. Would definitely go again!

“Not what it used to be”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Have been here numerous times, but a years ago. Was my favorite place to go, but not the case any longer. The host seemed annoyed by our 8:00 on Monday arrival without reservations, said it'd be an hour, was maybe 25 minutes. Service not great, I ordered a glass of wine, which never came. Appetizer was not good at all and neither was main course. Many wonderful places to go in Charleston, but sadly this isn't one of them anymore!
