It was a busy Saturday afternoon in Charleston but the staff here were on top of their game. The two waitresses consistently checked on me. The fried shrimp and flounder basket was tasty and the beers on tap were extensive.

We often stop in at the Griffon for a quick and tasty lunch when we’re on our annual vacation to the Charleston area. This lunch was wonderful. We were fortunate enough to be there on Wednesday when they offer fried chicken as the lunch special....More
