Hall’s Chophouse, Charleston, SC

If lawyers treated clients the way Hall’s treats their guests there would be no defections! It is hard to imagine feeling more welcome anywhere short of home. Even when I have been away for a year or more I am greeted with a shout of “Red Sox!” when I walk through the door. A special place that is pricy but worth every penny. Tell Billy Hall that “Boston” sends his regards!

Hanks, Charleston, SC

An unbeatable combination of fascinating people watching and perhaps the best seafood on the East Coast. Not much to look at from outside, but a very comfortable place to spend time once you sit down for a meal. Be sure to go to the bar and ask Mariah to make you a drink.

High Thyme Cuisine, Sullivan’s Island, SC

One of the best places in the state for brunch, High Thyme is also an outstanding choice for lunch or dinner. Laid back service is not for anyone in a rush. But the food is well worth the wait. Try to get seated in the outdoor dining area, then sit back and enjoy the experience.

Langdon’s, Mt. Pleasant, SC

If you want to impress a client – or a date – Langdon’s is the place to do it. Very elegant and refined, with a menu that puts a local spin on international flavors. I’ve enjoyed many pork chops over the years and Langdon’s is one of the best.
