There is plenty that Charleston is proud of, from its historic landmarks to beautifully adorned inns, but its crown jewel may just be its cuisine. Charleston has prided itself on its low country cuisine that can be found in many restaurants throughout town. Low country dishes typically consist of shrimp and grits, crab cakes and fried green tomatoes, just to name a few.
Charleston has seafood restaurants on every corner. These range from the typical family-style, deep fried seafood restaurant to finer restaurants that feature variations of low country dishes. Hyman's is one of the most popular family-style restaurants among tourists. Located in the middle of downtown Charleston, the wait to get into Hyman's can be over an hour on weekends. Fig is one of Charleston's finer seafood restaurants, which has an intimate vibe and features unique seafood dishes that you won't find at the typical seafood restaurant.
