We only stopped in for a drink and a snack but were really impressed with the few items we sampled. It was a quiet Sunday night and we sat at the bar. Although he didn’t mention it, we were served by the manager. My husband...More

Recently tried The grocery on a recommendation from the bartenders at Warehouse. Sat at the bar with my wife. We were there early in the evening so it was quiet. The bar is comfortable with a nice selection of happy hour apps. I had a...More

A must visit when in Charleston. The food is outstanding. Great charcuterie board, awesome bone marrow brûlée and the short rib was amazing. The cabbage gratin and the roasted carrots were off the chain! Truly an exceptional meal. Dinner was paired with great service. Worth...More

On a January Friday night out, we thought our party of four would have little trouble finding a restaurant on King Street at around 6:30pm. Wrong. The restaurants were only moderately busy, but they were all holding tables for their 7pm reservations. Apparently, EVERYONE in...More

I am always frustrated trying to find 'non-tourist' food in Charleston. While Charleston is full of many many restaurants, there are few that are creative with their cuisine, especially for a vegetarian. If you are vegetarian and want to dine with non-vegetarians, the Grocery is...More

Evoking memories of the small-town grocery, executive chef and owner Kevin Johnson has created a gathering place of warmth and familiarity, with a menu based on seasonal ingredients available from local and regional farmers and fishermen he knows and has worked with for many years. The Grocery’s kitchen is stocked with house-made charcuterie and fresh, local fish and seafood, and the restaurant accommodates an in-house canning program to preserve fresh produce for the menu. An extensive cocktail and wine list are available as is craft beer on tap, and a wood-burning oven heightens the cordial atmosphere in the former furniture warehouse.
