Sunday night in Charleston

Maybe I've never been in Charleston on Sunday night...but I'm getting frustrated trying to find someplace for a nice dinner our first nigh. I'm taking my Dad down for a few days for father's day. So far, Sienna and FIG are wash-outs. What can you suggest? Thanks.

  1. Hank's, Carolina's, SNOB & McCrady's are all open for dinner on Sunday. What does your Dad like?

      Thanks, lizzy, I was hoping to hear from you. Daddy isn't terribly picky...but I'm not so sure he would enjoy the molecular gastronomy thing at McCrady's...what do you think? Is it over the top? I have taken them to Hank's before, hate to repeat, but I think he liked it. SNOB, I have never tried, and seeing that it is related to High Cotton gives me pause...the one in G'ville is decidedly mediocre. What's your opinion between the 4 you mentioned?

      What about Poe's tavern? we are staying on IOP. Is that too laid back for 70-something parents, and do you have any idea if they are open Sunday? They're website doesn't tell me.

      Thanks again

        I am a huge fan of Poe's Tavern and it is a great place for all ages but it is very casual.

          Sorry, I didn't see your post until now, but I would love to know where you took them.

          Just for the record, even though SNOB and High Cotton are related I think SNOB is heads above HC. They have different head chefs, and the food at SNOB is very good.

        1. I would check out McCrady's if I were you, great building, great food, great service

        2. If you're willing to drive, Fat Hen is open on Sundays and it is very tasty.

          1. Oh, i just read your second post, Fat Hen is on John's Island, pretty far for IOP. . .
            The City Paper just had a pretty good review of Crave (, which is on the IOP connector, and open Sundays. I haven't eaten there myself, but a friend of my recently did and said it was good.
