This place is a little gem. The food is great with vegetarian options. The biscuits are awesome and the bread pudding is so good you could eat that for an appetizer, the main course AND dessert.

Always a Charleston classic for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Cannot go wrong with the view of boats, marina, or water. Plus they stamp your parking ticket for 2 hrs credit.

Yes, right there, though it is tight. I think they stamp your ticket from the parking vendor if I remember correctly.
