This little place is a real find! Limited menu but fine choices, excellent food, very friendly staff, nice wine selection, beautiful bar. Only about 8 tables, so best to consider reservations beforehand. Also offers a couple of outdoor tables. Definitely worth dining here!

A lovely place to have a glass of wine, sample some fresh baked sweets, or have a delicious meal. They have upgraded the menu but still have the same welcoming staff and ambience. Great to be back again in 2017.

Was wandering around downtown Charleston after meeting up with two friends. Decided to get a bite to eat and walked past The Meeting House. I was drawn in by the window table with white tablecloth and a nice looking appetizer. The interior is intimate, comfortable,...More

This is a small spot and was pretty empty by the time I stopped by in mid-afternoon. It wasn't only patrons that were lacking. One woman seemed to be serving the role of bartender, waitress and dishwasher. By her own admission she had dishes to...More
