Charleston with kids
My hubby and I are heading to Charleston for a long weekend with the kiddos (ages 1 and 3). We are staying downtown and are interested in family friendly dinning. Specifically we are interested in a seafood place near the beach to go to after an afternoon of fun in the sun. We have been to SNOB, Rue de Jean, and Justines before. I was wondering if Magnolias is child friendly, they tend to be pretty good diners (although I may have just jinxed myself!) Thanks
There are very few places in Charleston that aren't kid friendly (Peninsula Grill and Circa 1886 come to mind) and pretty much anywhere you want to go will welcome your children.
I do suggest dining early to beat the crowds and reservations if possible.
A few restaurants come to mind:
On Folly there is Taco Boy, but it is obviously not strictly seafood. Just off the island is Bowen's Island Rest., it is mainly fried seafood and definitely a come as you are type of place. It is plastic patio furniture, and be prepared to bring your own bug spray, although they do have a screened in area. I just wanted to mention this because I know you are traveling w/young children, and if you need highchairs and the like I would be extremely surprised if they have any.
There are two places in Mt. Pleasant that would work if you were heading back to your hotel. The first is The Wreck, a fried seafood place. Although I like Bowen's better, The Wreck would be more likely to have highchairs.
The second is Boulevard Diner, not seafood but comfort food with a twist. They are family friendly.
