Charleston Eats

One of the things that make Charleston such a special place is all of the fantastic restaurants. I could have stayed for weeks just to try all of the different eateries, but I'll share with you the few we did get to experience. They were goodies!

First up, we ate an awesome lunch at 82 Queen.

They have a lush-green courtyard for dining that provides an exuberant atmosphere.

We sat in the courtyard and started with a mouth-watering bloody mary (topped with a fresh shrimp, olive, and okra), a pomegranate mimosa, and fresh biscuits. 

You pretty much can't go wrong with a single thing on the menu, but you simply must try their cheese grits! They are to die for.

Our next stop, which was my favorite pick from the trip, was dinner at Pearlz Oyster Bar.
It's nestled on East Bay Street, in the heart of downtown, with all the bustling of Charleston nightlife.

If you ever visit, the best seat in the house is dinner at the bar. The bartenders shuck oysters in front of you all night, and you'll leave with new friends on either side of you. 

To start we had 1/2 dozen steamed oysters that were delicious. We probably should of gotten a full dozen because they were gone way too quickly.

We weren't super hungry for our main course, so we split a juicy burger and finished off the night with a round of oyster shooters. They left my mouth on fire and wanting more!

Lastly, we enjoyed a very nice dinner at Slightly North of Broad, also known as S.N.O.B.

I didn't get any pictures of my own, but dinner was great. We split crab soup to start, and I ate the special pork belly appetizer, and W had an amazing salmon entree.

This is just a small look at the fantastic cuisine Charleston has to offer. Next time we go back there are so many more I'd like to try, HUSK, Poogan's Porch, and Sermet's to name a few!
