We dined twice at The Ordinary because we found it extraordinary. The baked oysters were wonderful. We liked the shrimp, the various fish of the day. The lobster roll was fine, considering how far Charleston is from New England. This is a restaurant for lovers of shellfish. The shrimp hush puppies were good, but heavy. The menu changes each day with whatever fish or shellfish are available. It appears that the restaurant changes their webpage often also, so you might get a preview of what is available. We liked the breaded swordfish 'schnitzel' and Kale Caesar salad. Beer selection is excellent, we liked the local Farmhouse Ale Bearded farmer, Westbrook Brewery.
As noted, this was a bank building and has a very high ceiling, so it can be noisy, but not too bad in decibels. One may sit at two bars, and there is an upstairs dining area with a view of the banking/dining floor. Be sure to reserve in advance.
