We chose this restaurant as the menu appeared to have some vegetarian options available, 3 nights in Charleston and my vegetarian husband did not have very many options available, our server was Sarah, who was not only VERY good but also very sweet. She made some very good recommendations and her service was fantastic. Food came out quick and was... More

I had the shrimp and grits. It was delicious, better than the other shrimp and grits I had at another highly rated restaurant in Charleston. The ambiance and service were excellent. The price was reasonable or even low for such quality.

My , daughter, wife and I spent our only fine dining experience at the Swamp Fox. We had Fillet Mignon, Pork Chop and Duck Breast among us. All were cooked perfectly and tasted wonderful. Our server was especially engaging and efficient. The Pecan Pie was not the syrupy, sticky concoction we usually get, instead a little drier but a culinary... More

Thanks for a great meal. Nice size portions. Excellent waiter was super attentive to our needs. I'll be back next time we're in town. My cousin just moved a few blocks away so will make it a point to visit each time we are in town.

We started off with the Fried Green Tomatoes with locally sourced goat cheese and a spicey jam. ($9) Very good. I had the Gnochhi for my entree... More

The atmosphere of the restaurant is comfortable with style, and the staff friendly and professional. While not what I would rate as "fine cuisine", the food is good and the prices commensurate. For folks who stop at the bar for a pre-dinner drink, be prepared for a small area which can get a bit crowded.
