Everybody raves about this place but I just don't get it. They say they have "fresh farm eggs" but their omelets come out looking, smelling and tasting just like egg beaters poured into a plastic container and microwaved. I know because I used to make...More

I went here because featured on Triple D. Most times Triple D places are great. It seemed like an off night and the selection seem limited. My wife was really not happy. Maybe try again next time.

Enjoyed a steak and Mahi - both good. The kitchen was accommodating in deleting blackening from the steak. Red rice as a side was very good.

Sorry I only see your question now. If I recall, the meal was around $18, and a drink about 3. Add tip, about $25. I came out with the impression of having had a good bargain.

The Glass Onion is one of Charleston’s original home grown, locally focused, all-natural restaurants. Owner and Executive Chef Chris Stewart opened the restaurant in 2008 with fellow culinary colleagues. It was one of the first places in town to support local farmers and purveyors with almost every dish and drink. An eighth generation Alabama native, Stewart’s love and appreciation of southern food shows through his menu. His restaurant boasts comfort food that reflects his time growing up in Alabama, as well as New Orleans and Lowcountry influences. The ever-evolving menu changes daily and features as many local, all natural, hormone-free ingredients as possible. The soulful food draws influence from Stewart’s southern heritage and family recipes, especially from his grandmother Jennie Ruth; and is available for lunch, dinner and Saturday brunch.
