Excellent food.... the fried cabbage was amazing! Baked shrimp was also amazing and full of flavor. Our waitress was prompt, friendly and helpful. We would definitely visit again.

Ordered a case of sauce to pickup at cashier. Paid by credit card. Cashier decided she deserved a tip for ringing up the sale and charged us more than we signed for. Called back to complain and manager refused to do anything about it unless...we drive back to pick up the money. Refused to credit our card.More

We visited Nigels' Good Food for dinner. We had the Low Country Ravioli and Shrimp and Grits. Although our server was slow to respond, both were excellent - great taste and large portions. The background music was great - the decor was average. HIghly Recommended.

They misnamed this place - it should be Nigel’s Great Food. The place can get a bit crowded, and the crowd is right. Here you get a great quality meal and plenty of it - didn’t see a lot of super healthy choices on the...menu, but after the first bite of fried chicken, you really don’t care anyway. Awesome meal - don’t let the strip mall appearance fool you.More

This was our first meal in Charleston. We were intimidated by the portions but managed to eat it all. We took our desert to go. You have to try it for yourself, every bit of it was delicious and the service was excellent!

My husband and I shared the geechie wings, fried green tomatoes and cornbread. He had the gumbo as well. It was all delicious the best fried green tomatoes we have ever had! Good service as well!

Local Charleston soul food fave. Nondescript location in grocery strip mall hides a great food spot. Meat and three-protein plus three sides-a big draw. We both went a different way. I chose the shrimp and deviled crab platter and DW chose the shrimp po-boy. All...shrimp were plump and fresh an really good. Sandwich had so many they were popping out. Deviled crab is like a crab cake stuffed into a crab she'll. Very tasty and not fishy at all. The hush puppies may have been the best ever. Light but crispy. Not over or under cooked. Served with maple syrup!! My potato salad was delicious. Obviously homemade a bit heavy on mustard and pickle but still great. The cornbread was also among the best ever- may have been made with added yellow cake mix to get that moist and flavorful. Dessert-incredible bourbon pecan pie and the one misstep was the peach cobbler. Really just a bowl of peachy cinnamon goo with a small but of crust. Highly recommend.More

I absolutely loved my meal but I did not like the desserts at all. The banana pudding and peach cobbler do not have any flavor.
