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.

“Simply Superb!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

We were unable to get a reservation at LB's sister restaurant and were referred to LB's. My oh my what a great stroke of luck. Our meal was amazing from the Bloody Mary to the friend green tomatoes and on to the crab cakes with collards and succotash. The crab cakes were the best I believe I've ever had and couldn't have been more fresh if the crab had been walking on the table! Delightful service and atmosphere. LB's is simply a must stop for any visit to Charleston. Thank you for the wonderful memories!!

“Very empty place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

We arrived here around 2pm on a holiday (MLK) afternoon and found it almost empty. Where are the customers??? The shrimp and girts I ordered was pretty good but I thought it more like Italian and Southern maybe because of tomatoes on them, looking and tasting more like marinara sauce. The location is right on Market so can't be better. I would say this place is good and ordinary.

“Shrimp and grits are so good!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

Nice restaurant in the middle of it all, along the south side of the City Market. Shrimp and grits were phenomenal and lots to eat. We also had the pulled pork with shells and cheese and collards and all of it was so delicious. Our waiter was very attentive, even after they seated a huge party behind us. That was the only problem...we sat upstairs and the noise bounces, so the loud party behind us seemed especially loud. Other than that, it was a great experience and a wonderful dinner!

“Delicious Low Country Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

By far the most memorable meal of the entire weekend that we spent in Charleston!! The Tasso Shrimp and the Chicken and Waffles are something that everyone should experience! Reasonably priced. I could have eaten here for every meal.
