Food, Service and ambiance were all great. We particularly loved the brie and clam dip appetizer. Slight downgrade for an under poured Manhattan, but that's just being ticky tacky. Highly recommend if you're looking for a special dinner in Charleston.

Great place for a special dinner. We took our adult son and went for our anniversary. NY Strip was cooked/seasoned to perfection. Our son had the catch of the day which was Grouper.
