Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • You'll experience true Southern hospitality at this stylish and welcoming restaurant in the heart of historic downtown Charleston. The veteran team is committed to providing warm and impeccable service and will work with you to customize your event.
  • There are three private dining areas: The Main Dining Room features exposed brick and a heart pine floor, while the East Bay Room has crystal chandeliers and large windows overlooking East Bay Street. The French Quarter Room connects to a courtyard that's great for a pre-dinner cocktail hour.
  • The menus, which showcase fresh seafood, Lowcountry specialties, and Allen Brothers steaks, can be mixed and matched to suit your preferences. You can choose a seated or buffet meal—along with an hors d'oeuvre reception—all provided with beautiful table settings and upgraded china.
