Returned to FULTON 5 after a two year hiatus. Found the excellence was still there. Tried the grouper special. Just outstanding!! Friends had the bolognese. They raved about it. Dessert was pear bread pudding. Amazing. Great service. Need to call ahead. Place was packed.

My wife and I really enjoyed Fulton Five! A local friend suggested it. A very small but quaint place that was great! Ask for table #24!

I love this restaurant and always hope to get into Charleston when I visit Daniel Island. The food is outstanding and the interior is lovely.

What a fine restaurant! Extremely comfortable surroundings and very attentive and knowledgeable wait staff. Five of us enjoyed the evening and NEVER felt rushed nor uncomfortable. Each meal, from appetizers to desserts, were well prepared and savory. Many thanks to the crew at Fulton Five.

Came across this restaurant by chance. My husband and I were staying at The Belmond (beautiful!), but we didn't want to dine in their fining restaurant which surprisingly was the only restaurant they offered in the evening. So we walked out of the back of the hotel into King Street and within a few minutes came across Fulton Five. As... More

We stumbled upon Fulton Five last week during our visit to Charleston, located on a quaint side street off of King Street. When we later read about it, we discovered it's been voted most romantic restaurant in Charleston 17 years running. When we tried to make a reservation the next day, we discovered they aren't on Open Table. And so... More

We arrived without a reservation after a day of sightseeing. I felt we were a little underdressed but the staff were welcoming and accepting. We were able to be seated right away because of a reservation cancellation. The pasta selections were excellent. I loved the fact that I could order either a half or full portion. The dinner specials were... More

We visit Charleston 2-3 times per year. We have always included FF for dinner. Food is consistently just right as is the wine menu. Mostly a locals crowd nicely dressed and mannered. Service never disappoints either.

The restaurant is small but intimate. They offer small plates as well as normal size portions. The dessert is homemade. Our service was outstanding.
