Charleston in early May

Sam Spade Apr 4, 2010 10:56 AM

Going to be in peninsular Charleston for 4 nights and was looking for recomendations. This is our fifth visit and we've been to: Peninsula Grill, SNOB, McCradys, Charleston Grill, Cypress, Fish, Robert's, Cru Cafe, High Cotton, Hanks, Blossom, Magnolia, 1886, and 82 Queen.
While there's several that we'd definately consider revisiting, I was looking for ideas on places we may have overlooked on previous visits. We won't have a car on this trip so are looking for walkable options.

McCrady's Restaurant
2 Unity Alley, Charleston, SC 29401

Peninsula Grill
112 N Market St, Charleston, SC 29401

Charleston Grill
224 King Street, Charleston, SC 29401

82 Queen

    No exactly walkable (well, not for MY fat ass), but do NOT miss Hominy Grill your next trip. ;-)

      Haha, I agree! There's also a new place called Amen St. that's getting great review from people I trust. And it's walking distance.

        Out of the place you mentioned, which ones do you consider to be worth a repeat?
        What about FIG? We tried it on our last trip and loved it! We are trying SNOB and Cypress in a few weeks. Would like one other place but can't decide where.

          I'd definately repeat McCradys, SNOB, Fish, Cypress, and Hanks based on 09 visit. Heard good things about FIG, can't figure out why we've never made it there.
