Although breakfast for the Charleston Inn bed and breakfast is served in The Lantern, they are open to the public for dinner from 4-9 PM. We dined here on our first night and were quite pleased with the food and service.
The restaurant has a homey feel to it and although the current owners have only been here since 2015, it is clear that it has been a restaurant for many, many years. Pressed tin ceilings, dark woods, and a small bar area lend an old-fashioned feeling to the restaurant. Outside service is on an apparently newly added wooden deck, tables with umbrellas, under the oak trees.
For starters I enjoyed a cup of She Crab Soup, loaded with crab in a light, creamy soup. Hubby chose the Oysters Rockefeller and thoroughly enjoyed the freshness of the oysters topped with spinach, butter, and parmesan cheese. As an entrée, I chose the Zucchini Fritters. Two large, crispy sautéed shredded zucchini and parmesan fritters were topped with a delicious Lemon-Herb Remoulade sauce and sides of shredded Brussel sprouts and grits. A Fantastic choice. Hubby chose the ground brisket and dry aged porter house beef burger, cooked to perfection! He declared the burger moist, juicy, and delicious. For dessert, we shared a slice of classic pecan pie made with oak-aged bourbon. Delectable!
The restaurant serves a wide variety of southern-style dishes, from crab cakes to steaks, small and large plate servings, salads, soups, and desserts. A delicious choice for any occasion.
