At this iconic establishment, “if it doesn’t come from the South, it’s not coming through the door.” Chef Travis Grimes now leads the team, producing inventive yet soulful offerings such as shrimp and grits with smokey tomato fennel and charred chicken wings with spiced peanuts.


A stroll through Charleston offers antebellum houses, colonial charm, and a sprawling coastline. This city is gorgeous. While sights will be seen during all outings, there are a few highlights one should seek. First, Magnolia Plantation and Gardens is a historic house with lush vegetation and stunning flora.
