“A wonderful suprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

We went for lunch and all ordered the fish & chips. We can't wait to go back and try other items on their menu. Service was very attentive, food really incredibly delicious.

“Best meal in Charleston”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

When you go to Charleston, you tend to spend a ton on food, and 75% of the time it's worth it. Nigel's was not expensive in the least, and was AMAZING. Best hush puppies and collards I've ever had. You can't really miss with the food, so try it all. They also do live music on Wednesdays (I think).

The best part, the service. All of the wait staff is about as friendly as can be, as is the owner Nigel.

Check this place out, especially if you're doing day trips from Charleston as it's off of a few main highways.

“Nigel's is a diamond in the rough”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Just returned from a trip to North Charleston. Went to Nigel's based on Trip Advisor reviews. To say that Nigel's exceeded my expectations would be a gross understatement. The atmosphere was warm and friendly. The background music was pleasant and appropriate to the setting. The waitstaff was helpful and recommended the shrimp and crab ravioli as the number one selection on the menu, which I chose. I was not disapointed. The dish was prefectly prepared with a generous portion of succulent shrimp and crabmeat. The sauce was reminiscent of a creamy newburg sauce, only lighter, with the slightest hint of heat, a perfect contrast to the rich sauce. I can't wait to go back to Charleston if only to dine at Nigel's again. Yes the service was a little slow, but the kitchen obviously takes care to prepare food from scratch. I would rather wait for the excellent food while enjoying the atmosphere than have the food served quickly without the care and attention to excellence. One more thing - at $13.95 my dish would have been a bargain at twice the price.
