Dining at Charleston is just that, dining, at its finest. The menu is truly a wonder, with the freedom to experience it as you wish. The pairings were perfect. An experience not to be missed.

Most guests will feel more comfortable in slacks than jeans, although the bar area is more casual. Your service staff are in suits and ties, though you are not required either.
