Nosh and Booze in Charleston

Nosh and Booze in Charleston

Mint Juleps and Jambalaya?  Yes PLEASE.  Charleston has quickly become a hot destination for foodies. As a self-proclaimed foodie myself, I could not wait to try some of this heralded Southern fare.  Here are some of my fave go-to spots to nosh and booze when visiting Charleston.


  • 82 Queen: The atmosphere at 82 Queen alone is enough to pay a visit.   I went for a late brunch and sat in the darling interior courtyard.  Try the Jambalaya or the Crab Eggs Benedict!   
  • Husk: If you’re a burger lover, you shouldn’t miss lunch at Husk.  Their burger is allegedly the best in town.
  • Fig: Serving up an elevated take on traditional Southern fare, Fig is definitely a must try restaurant spot.  It has quickly become a Charleston staple and is my personal favorite dinner I had while in Charleston.
  • The Macintosh: Upscale casual farm-to-table dining in the heart of Charleston on King Street.
  • Halls Chophouse:  Halls does an awesome Gospel Brunch on Sundays and it is such a fun time.  Great food, soulful music, amazing service, and libations to cure that Sunday hangover – what more could you ask for?
