Description: SIMPLY LOWCOUNTRY: Lowcountry Bistro focuses only on the freshest ingredients since all of the food we cook is from scratch. On the menu you will find cult favorites like Chicken and Waffles to Lowcountry classics like Shrimp and Grits. We also believe that great food can be affordable. Many of our lunch dishes are under $10. Our goal as a restaurant is to serve high quality, delicious food, at a fair price. We hope you agree after your meal at Lowcountry Bistro. SISTER RESTAURANT TO 82 QUEEN As an icon of the city for over 30 years, we have seen restaurants come and go. We pride ourselves on the fact that we were one of the first original Lowcountry cuisine restaurants to open their doors in the city. We know Lowcountry and after diligently researching Market Street restaurants, have come to the conclusion that what the area needs is a true, authentic Lowcountry restaurant.

“Wonderful food and atmosphere!”
Reviewed January 7, 2013 via mobile

2nd visit to Low Countey Bistro. Food was excellent. The service is great and everyone is friendly even with little kids. Fried Green tomatoes were cooked perfectly. Crispy breading and not mushy on the inside. Charleston Cuban sandwich was great and the Mac n cheese was also wonderful.

“Delicious Charleston”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

We dined at the Low Country Bistro to celebrate our anniversary and had a delicious dinner and fun experience. Our wonderful waitress was Shannon who made us feel very welcome. She offered to take our photo and surprised us with a dessert treat. The chef thanked us for celebrating our anniversary with them. Their location is conveniently next to the Market and easy to find. They have seating on the main floor and upstairs with outdoor seating off of the second floor. We have been visiting Charleston for over 14 years and this is our second time to dine at LB which is reasonably priced. We will definitely return and hope that Shannon will be our waitress!

“Not very special specials”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Very poorly cooked food. Ordered appetizer special that starred prosciutto ... Cooked like crisp country ham...ordered trout special that came with skin that basically had not been cooked and was not crisp as fish skin should be,undercooked rice and greens that were so salty they were indelible . Usually order specials when trying a new restaurant because that is where the chef can shine...hard to believe there is an actual chef in this kitchen.

“Favorite Restaurant in Charleston”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Apparantly this is a newer restaurant to downtown Charleston. It was DELICIOUS!!! I ordered lots of appetizers because they all looked so good. The pulled pork nachos were delicous but the roasted sweet potato fingerlings were even better!!! my son ordered the Fried chicken and waffles and he loved it. The waffles were "sweet potato, cornbread" waffles and they were good!!!! This place was realy good and the restaurant itself was in a beautiful building
