We stopped for a quick lunch. I had a BLT sandwich which tasted Ok but was a little heavy on the bacon and light on the tomato. The lettuce was arugula? The chilli was nice. The server seemed a little bored and not quite engaged...More

My fiance & I had a delicious five course dinner here last night during Charleston Restaurant Week. The food was absolutely delicious and the service top shelf. We are locals & will definitely be back soon. They make you feel right at home here!
