Yum Yum Yum is all I can say. It's perfect every time. The servers treat you like royalty and the food is perfect every time. And no, I don't know anyone who works there lol. I just love this place.

We tied this place around the holidays on a trip to Charleston. It is located right downtown not too far from he water. I believe about a block or two to the river. As with every building in old Charleston, it seemed historic and cosy....More

Stopped in for lunch and we're pleasantly surprised by the great atmosphere and staff. The shrimp and grits were good and the carbonara was wonderful, reportedly the best our friend had ever had.

Chose the chef's taste menu with wine pairings. Five excellent courses. Salads, egg, grouper, quail, steak, dessert. Yea, I know, that's six. Alex was an exceptional waiter and made such excellent wine choices. The food was excellently prepared and presented. Each progression led nicely to...More
