Treat yourself! Restaurants to splurge at in Charleston

Charleston is a town full of history, beauty, and most of all, restaurants.

If there is one thing to splurge on in this city, it’s the AMAZING food.

Whether you want seafood or Southern comfort, there is a place here that will leave your stomach full and happy!

This week Alyssa and Ally talk all things food in the Charleston area, and as broke college students, tell you which ones are worth the splurge.

Check out some of our favorite places below! 

Bowens Island Restaurant 

This could be considered one of Chucktown’s hidden gems. Tucked away on Bowens Island Road just 15 minutes from the downtown peninsula, this place has the best Lowcountry atmosphere, seafood, and views.
Price: $-$$

Amen Street Fish & Raw Bar

OYSTERS! I may be biased because they are my favorite food, but anywhere that has a kickin’ raw bar is the place to be. Amen Street is downtown and has an amazing selection of fresh raw oysters every night. Their chandeliers are made of oyster shells…need I say more?
Price: $$-$$$

Fleet Landing 

Another place downtown that has an amazing raw bar, but what keeps me coming back is the creme brulee! Nothing ends a nice meal on the water like a mouth-watering dessert. If you are an oyster fan and a creme brulee connoisseur, look no further because Fleet Landing is your place.
Price: $$-$$$

Poogan’s Porch

Poogan’s serves up Southern comfort food AND history (some say the ghost of Poogan the dog sits on the porch). Poogan’s Porch is inside a historic Victorian home and hands down serves up the best fried green tomatoes I’ve ever had.
Price: $$-$$$

Slightly North of Broad (SNOB) 

SNOB has a little bit of everything from steak to shrimp-and-grits and whatever you might get will not be a disappointment and is definitely more on the splurge side of your wallet. Make a reservation because the waits are always long at this Charleston favorite!
Price: $$$

These are just a few of many…make sure to listen to this week’s podcast where we talk more about our favorite places and discuss the ones we still need to try!
