We visited Planter's Tavern on the evening of July 4th. We had no reservations, but did get a table in the early evening with a reasonable wait.
It was a little hard to find the tavern, tucked in beneath the Pink House, and was initially very dark until your eyes adjusted. We loved the character and the story behind the location.
I'd selected this based on TripAdvisor reviews, and had not really checked the menu prior to our arrival, so I was a little surprised by the prices, which are more than we usually pay for a meal, but are in line with the quality and service.
I had the scored flounder with grits and collards and thoroughly enjoyed the presentation and the meal; it was perfect. My husband had the braised pork shanks. While he enjoyed them quite a lot, he actually preferred the lunch we'd had (at Sweet Potatoes; a must-visit!) Our desert - a flourless chocolate tort - was amazing.
The service was very friendly, knowledgeable about the menu and the location, and very efficient. It was worth the money and I will return.
