The only reason I give it the minus is because they do not enforce their own dress code, some people in T shirts, cargo shorts and flip flops. Waitress said she thinks they are afraid they may lose business- they were packed Food was yummy...More

I have been here many times and each time the food is amazing, the service is the best in Charleston. I have never been disappointed. Many new places open and they are great, but this place is an old Charleston standby, but never stale!

Jacket is not required, but many men do wear them. My husband did not, he was fine with a collard shirt. It is within walking distance. We walked and it was between .5-1 mile.
