MY FAVORITE FOOD SPOTS IN CHARLESTON, SC
Growing up with family near the Charleston area means I have tried my fair share of the best food Charleston has to offer. I recently traveled back for a bachelorette trip I was in charge of planning and knew I had to take my friends to my favorite spots. I have managed to narrow down to some of my favorite must-tries for you.
MY FAVORITE CHARLESTON, SC FOOD SPOTS
My top spot in Charleston. Located on the waterfront on Shem's Creek in Mount Pleasant, this spot is not only perfect for the views but also for the yummy bites to eat. My personal favorites are the infamous trashcan nachos, perfectly salty boiled peanuts, or the fish tacos. The bar also has a selection of yummy cocktails to choose from.
Oftentimes on the weekend, they will have a DJ playing all your favorite tunes. Aside from the great outdoor seating option right on the creek, you can also sit indoors.
I recommend checking out this spot when visiting Charleston. Shem's Creek also has so many other bar options you can walk the dock and grab a cocktail along the way after dinner.
THE LOST DOG CAFE
The cutest little cafe on Folly Beach! The Lost Dog Cafe is your quintessential Southern brunch spot. They offer everything from fluffy pancakes topped with fresh fruit to a warm cup of she crab soup paired with a cute mason jar of sweet tea.
On the weekends, it can get quite busy, but the wait goes quickly. There is outdoor patio seating available as well as indoors. Don't forget to walk around Folly Beach after!
The coolest, lunch spot in downtown Charleston! Fuel Charleston was originally an old gas station transformed into a great lunch spot with tons of yummy options.
My personal favorite is the Island Rice Bowl filled with everything from beans to slaw, and if you want you can choose to add meat options as well pr cauliflower for vegetarians. The tacos are also quite delicious, and you must try the roasted corn chowder to start.
I defiantly recommend taking a break for lunch at Fuel.
Now onto a dinner options. If you are looking for dinner with a view, Fleet Landing is the perfect spot. Located right on the waterfront in downtown Charleston it offers beautiful views as well as the most delicious Southern food.
With lots of options from shrimp and grits to Carolina Lump Crab Cakes and Low County Seafood Pasta you are sure to find the perfect yummy option for you.
Also, don't forget to try one of the yummy cocktails available.
PAGE'S OKRA GRILL
Every time I visit Charleston, I do not leave until I have gone to Page's Okra Grill. As one of the best brunch spots in Charleston, in my opinion, it is a must-try! My favorite dish available is the award-winning Shrimp and Grits. They have a variety of dishes available including Beignets, Cinnamon Bun Waffle Breakfast, and Fried Shrimp.
Page's is truly a must-try when visiting Charleston. The wait can be over an hour, but it does go by quickly. This happens especially on weekends during brunch time, but the wait is worth the yummy dishes inside.
