This restaurant is a Charleston institution, but has been completely rejuvenated by executive chef Jeremiah Bacon. The cuisine here (and it is cuisine!) celebrates all the makes Charleston and the lowcountry unique and special. I highly recommend this place!

My wife and I ate here on a recent visit to Charleston. WE love the city and had heard wonderful thngs about this restaurant. To begin, the restaurant was too dark. I understand mood lighting, but when you need a flashlight to read the menu, it's going a bit too far. I ordered the PIE mussels, which I've had many places before, including Prince Edward Island. The mussels arrived and were "bloated" and fishy-tasting. I immediately had the sensation of mussels that were not fresh.

I then ordered their home made cavatelli. This was even worse...boring and under-cooked. It seriously tasted like Kraft macaroni and cheese that you'd buy in a box. The waitress was kind enough to remove the items from our bill. We tipped her on what the bill would have been as she was very nice.

But this place is way too expensive for the mediocre quality of food that it serves. Stay away.

Pros: It's in Charleston

Cons: Oh...where to begin?

This is a jewel among Charleston's crowded restaurant scene. Chef, Jeremiah Bacon, worked under Eric Ripert and Thomas Keller, two of the best chef's in the world, (if you watch Top Chef, you've seen them) and came back to Charleston because he's a local boy and boy was that a good thing for Charleston.
Everything that comes out of his kitchen is amazing. Not flashy or trendy, but deceptively simple in a way that lets the quality of the local seasonal food shine through. It's hard to recommend a specific dish because this is a seasonal menu that changes according to what's freshest and and available locally, much of which is grown for him on a local plantation. I am, as my screen name implies, a litlle picky, but I've tried things he's cooked, ( like pork belly), that I never thought I'd like and wanted to clean the plate. His beef carpaccio is delicious when it's on the seasonal menu and the won tons and calamari are always on it and a favorite of many. The hanger steak that's on it now is amazing. Upscale comfort food! The scallops are a lighter alternative and always impeccable. ( I don't understand the previous nysnob review, trust me, nothing in that rings true!) He cooked under Eric Ripert, who specilizes in fish, so he'd have to know what he was doing
with seafood.
The restaurant gives you several alternatives for dining, (although you should make reservations in advance if you want to be sure you get the area you want). The Perdita's room is intimate, romantic and slightly more formal, in the sidewalk room you can people watch. The bar area is lively and you can even eat at the bar if you don't mind waiting for a seat when it's busy. It can be noisy at times for some people. But, there are three banquets in the bar where you get the energy of the bar with a little of the clubbiness of the Perdita's room and it's easier to talk. Make reservations if you want one of these tables. We're locals and this is a neigborhood favorite and a Charleston tradition.

Pros: Excellent Service.Romantic Dining Room. Valet Parking.

With all the great previous reviews I read on Citysearch about Carolina's I was so disappointed on my most recent trip to Charleston. This was actually the WORST meal I had during my one week vacation.
The restaurant had an awful odor when we first entered the restaurant. The decor is outdated.
I can forgive most things as long as the food is good, but unfortunately this was not the case.
I had the fried flounder with peach jam with some veggies. My hubby had the seared diver scallops.
My fish was edible but nothing special. The veggies were not worth eating. The scallops although they had a decent sear were undercooked in the middle. The food seemed very un-inspired and unoriginal.
My son had a so-so burger. We didn't stick around for dessert since we just wanted to get out of here.
There are so many good restaurants in Charleston....DO NOT GO HERE.

My fiance and I went here for our anniversery. We were looking for a romantic restaurant, somewhere nice. Carolina's Restaurant surpassed all of our expectations from the complementary valet to the prompt seating to the friendly waiter. The food was delicious!! The dessert was the best we've ever had. We plan on visiting here everytime we go to Charleston (we've just bought a house there) and would recommend it to anyone looking for delectable food, wonderful service and an overall amazing time.

On a recent trip to Charleston, my husband took me there to celebrate my birthday. The service and food were excellent. I had the scallops 4 ways for an appetizer - I hadn't known there were so many unusual ways to prepare them. For dinner I tried the grouper. It was fabulous. For desert, they surprised me with a complimentary strawberry desert. It was by far one of the best restaurants in Charleston. If I lived closer, I'd be there often!

Had a business dinner with 7 other people - all 8 of us said it was one of the best meals we ever had. Yes, the grits (which I normally don't like) were fantastic. The waitress was fun, professional, and attentative. The restaurant is also a very short block from the harbor.
