Savory Dining In Charleston

The Historic District Serves Up Diverse Fare

By Natasha Lawrence

Charleston is rich in restaurants serving up down-home dishes. Travelers visiting the downtown historic district might check out the clusters of dining venues along N. and S. Market, East Bay, Church and State streets.

Among the sampling of choices for visitors?

  • Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. (843-723-5665, www.bubbagump.com), 99 S. Market St. A chain eatery offering soups, salads, sandwiches, seafood entrees and traditional fare such as pasta, baby-back ribs and steaks. Open for lunch and dinner.


  • Casa Grande (843-723-9820), 85 S. Market St. This is a great spot for Tex-Mex cuisine such as chiles poblanos stuffed with cheese, and very reasonably priced liters of house wine. Open for lunch and dinner.


  • Garibaldi’s (843-723-7153), 49 S. Market St. Northern Italian cuisine is featured here, including homemade pasta and such seafood dishes as seared flounder. Open for dinner.


  • Mistral (843-722-5708), 99 S. Market St. This restaurant serves up Southern French country cuisine. Open for lunch and dinner, and Sunday brunch. There are live music performances.
