Went there for a birthday dinner and everything we had was suberb. Oysters, Steak Tartare, Shrimp App, Tuna, Grouper and Steaks!! Drinks and service - excellent as well!
Located in the Bi-Lo Shopping Center off Shelmore Blvd., Langdon's has been providing superior food and service in the Mount Pleasant area for years. I've eaten both lunch and dinner here and we recently returned for dinner with friends. Our friends don't drink wine and we were pleased to see a very good wine list for offerings by the glass. I've lived in Charleston a long time and am really over shrimp and grits, but Langdon's version appealed to me on this particular night and it was delicious. We finished the meal with the coconut gelato which was a dish of cool, creamy goodness. Service on this particular evening was ok, but not up to the usual Langdon's standard, however, it was a crowded dining room. With its white tablecloths and napkins, this is upscale dining. Always plenty of parking. Highly recommended and we will return.
Most significant is the consistency of this excellent restaurant. Everything on the menu -- from top to bottom -- is excellent. How ? Continuity of Staff in the Kitchen. Unlike other Exec Chefs/Owners -- Patrick Owens has
kept the same team together for over a dozen years. He himself gets out on the floor to serve and engage his patrons ! Patrick is the anti-thesis of lazy. He's a dynamo
of determination, focus, culinary skill, and listening ability.
While he offers a varied menu -- it is all a reflection of local ingredients, finely honed flavors & textures, as well
as blending Seafood, Tender Grilled Steaks, Ocean Fish,
and superb Sides. Oysters Rockefeller and Daily Chef's Inspiration (to begin) are favorites. Salmon entree is simply the very, very best I have eaten anywhere. The Hawaiian Tuna entree is unusual and unmatched anywhere. The NY Strip Steak matches any served in the metro area .. The ambiance is good / very good. Service
is Superior. This is a great place for Couple Date Night, of a Very Serious Dinner / Lunch meeting. My favorite salad includes Sliced Sautéed Pear with Baby Lettuce, Blue Cheese or Gorgonzola crumble, and a Light Viniagrette.
The cost of dinner here is less than downtown which may reflect more advantageous rent. It may also reflect Patrick Owens' inclination to cultivate & reward long term patronage. Langdon's is undeniably superb and deserving to be among the 3 best in Charleston (SC) Metro.
You don't have to go downtown to receive a fine dining experience. Langdons is great, from the service to the drinks to the atmosphere. The steaks are wonderful. There's also a great selection of wines to choose from. If you are looking for a white-table cloth, 5 star experience in Mount Pleasant, Langdons is really your only (and best!) option.
