The food and service are always great. Visit Charleston several times a year and Low Country Bistro is always on our list. Seafood soup was tasty and loaded with seafood. Turkey and brie was fresh and melted in your mouth. Fried okra was lightly breaded....More

I'm a sucker for barbecue anywhere, but I had a great barbecued pork belly sandwich with cole slaw at Low Country Bistro.

We ate lunch here. I ordered the barbecue sandwich and I was not very happy with it. It was more fat than meat so I really didn’t eat all of it. The flavor was good but it was just too much fat. The other food...More

Description
SIMPLY LOWCOUNTRY: Lowcountry Bistro focuses only on the freshest ingredients since all of the food we cook is from scratch. On the menu you will find cult favorites like Chicken and Waffles to Lowcountry classics like Shrimp and Grits. We also believe that great food can be affordable. Many of our lunch dishes are under $10. Our goal as a restaurant is to serve high quality, delicious food, at a fair price. We hope you agree after your meal at Lowcountry Bistro. SISTER RESTAURANT TO 82 QUEEN As an icon of the city for over 30 years, we have seen restaurants come and go. We pride ourselves on the fact that we were one of the first original Lowcountry cuisine restaurants to open their doors in the city. We know Lowcountry and after diligently researching Market Street restaurants, have come to the conclusion that what the area needs is a true, authentic Lowcountry restaurant.
