We stumbled upon this place off of the Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives website. Stopped in for dinner and had the fried chicken. Food was great and the atmosphere was typical diner decor. Loved that they feature local artists’ works for sale. Service was impeccable!

Hands down the best pancakes in Charleston! Other breakfast options are just as good. Can't wait to go back for brunch!

We had a very enjoyable dinner at the Early Bird. The service and food was excellent. The bread pudding dessert was okay but not great. We enjoyed our waitress very much.
