Default Best Place To Eat: Charleston

SNOB is amazing if you haven't been there.

Pizzaria Di Giovanni is some of the best pizza there is on this Earth.

The brewery place is really good too. I can't remember the name off the top of my head.

There's also an Italian restaurant. I think the name is something close to comdoms or something. I remember always laughing at the name.

Gamecockphan has the right idea. Tatooed Moose is entirely overrated IMO.

MacIntosh
FIG
Fish
Fulton Five
Hank's

To name a few more dinner options.

I second Butcher & Bee for lunch.

No offense, but I was just about to comment that as long as you stay away from Hymans it is hard to do wrong.

That place is your prototypical tourist trap... the place I fear I will end up when traveling. They are still living off their Southern Living props from 1987.

The Wreck and Red's have ideal scenery, hard to beat. But again, if you are looking for good food in Charleston, look elsewhere. (Although I am a sucker for The Wreck.)

If you want fried seafood, Shrimp and Scallops, The Wreck is really good but pricey for what it is. Plate of food and a sweet tea will run you close to $25 these days. Same plate used to be $15.

We look for places that have daily specials with fresh ingredients. Farm to table type places if we can find them. It is too easy for places in Charleston to fall into a rut and put out shitty food knowing there will be another group of people checking in on Saturday.

Longpoint grill is our go to since it is close to the house. Same person owns the Mustard Seed and Boulevard diner which are also good for a fresh meal.

Liberty tap room has great burgers on tuesday night with $2.50 pints of all of their own brews.

If someone else is paying let them take you to Halls Chophouse downtown. Expect to drop around $300 for dinner and drinks though for 2 people.

Charleston is full of good places to eat . Having Johnson and Wales here really helped establish a lot of fine restaurants.

Default Re: Best Place To Eat: Charleston

There have been some great suggestions here.

Two Boroughs Larder is a fantastic new spot. Great food for the price, like Butcher and Bee.

The Macintosh is absolutely awesome. Jeremiah Bacon is a fantastic chef and has a great palate that's reflected in his savory entrees and apps.

FIG is another awesome place, Mike Lata has won a James Beard award and produces a fantastic product.

Another suggestion, for those with sensitive wallets, is Fleet Landing. It's not the haute cuisine that many want in the downtown Charleston dining experience, but pretty good food and seafood and the view is awesome if you can get a table outside. For the price-point, I think this place is a great option.

McCrady's is wayyyy overrated IMO and if anybody had any idea what goes on behind the scenes with the employees, I image the perception of the place would be very different. I guess that's most of the F&B industry, but I haven't seen it elsewhere like I have at McCrady's.

The Italian restaurant is actually named Bocci's. It's next to Tommy Condons on Church Street.
