Looking for a Special Thanksgiving Buffet in Charleston

Sharmassy Nov 15, 2010 10:07 AM

We will be staying in Mt P for the holiday with our 7 yr old son, anyone know of a place that would have an interesting atmosphere for our feast?

    Grill 225 has a mammoth buffet...after tax and tip it would be $100 per adult, kids I think it's $46

    Grill 225
    225 E Bay St, Charleston, SC 29401

      Wow, in my old restaurant I charged $12.95 for our Thanksgiving Day buffet. Granted it isn't Grill 225, but it was traditional and quite tasty. Gouging should not be acceptable at any time...be it after a hurricane or on a holiday.

      And $46 for children? You HAVE to be kidding.

      Just my opinion. Don't shoot me.

        Actually after tax and tip, it would about $42 for kids aged 7-12 and $22 for kids aged 3-6. So, apparently, if you have a kid over age 12 it would be $100! It is crazy, but, price aside, the menu sure looks awesome and it is a nice dining room:

        Prime beef tenderloin with black mission fig demi glace
        Organic free-range turkey with Southern giblet gravy
        Braised Berkshire pork shoulder in Natural Jus with apple and acai berry chutney

        Prosciutto wrapped roasted grouper with cannellini beans and sea urchin cassoulet

        smashed sweet potatoes with boursin cheese and toasted marshmallow crust
        chestnut golden raisin stuffing
        roasted cauliflower with whole grain mustard and lemon cream
        roasted root vegetables with apricot, cranberry, and cipollini onions
        corn lobster and pumpkin chowder with drambuie creme fraiche

        COLD ITEMS
        assorted sashimi and sushi with cold seaweed salad and traditional garnishes
        fois gras terrine with duck sauterne
        vegetable terrine
        mixed green salad station with traditional garnishes
        tomato and buffulo mozzarrella with balsamic basil oil

        marinated calimari
        mussels on the half shell
        crab cocktail claws
        marinated shrimp
        assorted italian cold meats
        imported and domestic cheeses

        raisin sourdough
        gruyere cheese puffs
        herbed biscuits
        bacon and jalapeno corn bread

        chocolate pecan pie
        pumpkin meringue pie
        bing cherry pie
        green apple pie
        bosc pear dartois
        mini apple galettes

      Get the oyster appetizer. It's my favorite.

        Yes. I love 17 North. It's very kid-friendly and relaxed. The food is great and they have outdoor seating with heaters.

        Another of my favorites is Atlanticville on Sullivans. I don't know if they are open for Thanksgiving. I just tried to call and got the machine. You might want to check it out.

          I just browsed Atlanticvilles menu, yummm! Even if we don't do Thanksgiving there, we are definitely putting them on our 'To Do' list!

            Wow, what a great Thanksgiving experience! I say that because it was so much more than just a meal,. Dining out on the patio, firepit blazing, football on in the tiki bar, children having a blast in the garden & making S'mores, Mom & Dad relaxing with a glass of wine......oh and spot on Buffet with all wonderful traditional fixings, I definitely was Thankful .

            Lots of places will be open

            The only buffet I know about is at the Francis Marion hotel. I haven't been (I go to my mama's house) but people gave it good reviews last year and the chef is very talented.

              Thank you , we were kind of excited about visiting Middleton Place , only to find their reservations are full that day, still looks like a place to visit another time. Have you tried 17 North Roadside in Mt Pleasant ?( it may be kid friendly with our 7 yr old)
