Very impressed by the friendly staff willing to accommodate us for a late lunch. Food seemed very fresh, made to order. Crab cake sliders and salad were nicely presented and enjoyed!

We absolutely loved our server Melissa who gave us never ending sweet tea! I had the shrimp and grits that were cooked in a different way which was delicious. My fiancé enjoyed his crab cakes very much as well. This of course wasn't our first time visiting. We've had breakfast and lunch here before while staying at the Francis Marion.... More

While visiting Charleston, my family and I happened upon Swamp Fox restaurant. We can't decide which was better, the food or the service. The service oozed of Southern hospitality. Daniel, who greeted us at the door and showed us to our seats, was so very charming. Corey was a professional server who was knowledgeable about the menu. The third gentleman,... More

After touring Charleston in the heat, we decided to stay put. Great decision. The farm to table special was delicious as was the steak. The restaurant staff was friendly and accommodating. Very enjoyable

WOW what a nice find. Came here for a Friday night dinner with my 2 daughters. We were in town to select a cake baker for her upcoming wedding in March. Honestly when we walked into the door I was shocked to see that there were not many people. Granted it was 8:00 but still with the reviews I read!?!... More
