Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • The original carriage house of Wentworth Mansion in downtown Charleston is a romantic setting for a wedding. A garden entry with picket fence and intertwining trees leads to the historic brick building, which sports barn doors and burnished pine floors.
  • The popular Tack Room has two fireplaces and views of the mansion, while the cozy Garden Room is great for small groups or rehearsal dinners. Buy out the whole restaurant and enjoy exclusivity and flexibility with Circa's multiple seating areas.
  • The chef puts a modern spin on traditional low country and Southern cooking. Using fresh, local ingredients, he delivers "peak of flavor" dishes that are refreshingly light and can be paired with wines from their extensive collection.
