I come here whenever in Charleston. Great outdoor courtyard. But it's the she-crab soup that keeps me coming back! Best in the city. Follow up with a crab cake and you've got a fantastic lunch. The owner's wife has a delicious pecan pie recipe too....More

My brother in law grew up in Charleston and said they had the best Shrimp and Grits in the city. They were absolutely fabulous! The service was impeccable thanks to our waiter, Drake! We will definitely be back on our next visit to Charleston!

Loved the She Crab soup. We went after a rainstorm; don't repeat our mistake! They have lovely outside seating in a garden setting. You will want to ask to be seated outside when you make your reservation.
