Restaurants....this weekend.

We're staying there this weekend..suggestions please? Doing Harbor Cruise first evening finishing at 7:30, where would you recommend eating fairly close by? Seafood, shrimp & grits preferred to get in the swing of things Charleston.

General questions: Hanks? Charleston Crab House? Husk? SNOB? Poogans Porch?

Cru? Breizh? They all look fantastic, but can my wallet hold out? I'm assuming reservations a must?

Only two of us.

Thanks

Yes, reservations are a must and you should have made them a couple of weeks ago. You may be limited to locations that still have openings. Skip Crab House, it is a tourist trap.

You know, I sensed that just by the name..but was hoping for the best.

Hanks sounds like it’s for real. Yes

As far as reservations go, I’ll get in it. Wish I were able to make reservations as far ahead as you suggest, but just too many things in the air before we finalized trip.

We’ll just have to wait in the bar...darn the luck!

Thanks.

Hanks is very good. Many think Husk didn't live up to the hype. The McIntosh is very good, as is SNOB, Magnolia, Peninsula Grill, Charleston Grill, Cru Cafe, Rue de Jean,Coast, Basil (thai) ~ lots of good choices.

Coast is closed indefinitely (no repair date given) due to a collapsed roof. What a shame, for now.

This mornings paper says that the patio at Coast should reopen today, pending a meeting with building officials.

The interior remains closed for the time being.

thanks...

I think we have it figured out. Decided, due to proximity to harbor cruise dock, we're going to hit

Fleet Landing for dinner first night, then Cru, then probably SNOB or Hank's..everything else

we'll wing as the days happen. Thinking 167 RAW, Breizh, Poogan's Smokehouse, drinks on Vendue Roof and possibly at the Thoroughbred Club.

Too much planning can ruin a vacation, since, in our opinion, the most interesting

times seem to happen totally out of the blue. As Bourdain put it...."...trying to micromanage the perfect vacation is always a recipe for disaster...." I have done that, and fear I'm approaching it here for this trip somewhat. But, I have learned that reservations at the best restaurants in Charleston are necessary, and that kind of attention to detail we will do. Thanks for helping.
