Whether this is your first time in Charleston, you visit every year, or you’ve lived here all of your life, you know that the Holy City delights in culinary perfection. At The Establishment, we understand how this is achieved: it begins with fresh, seasonal seafood from in and around Charleston, South Carolina. Our relationships with local farmers and fishermen ensures that everything on your plate is always the best available.
We had a wonderful experience. The food was excellent and beautifully presented. The entire staff was hospitable from the time we entered the restaurant. Our waiter, Rich, was well informed about the menu and provided recommendations and excellent service. The piano music added to the ambience of the evening. We were seated next to the piano and the pianist was very cordial. The level of the music and the choices were perfect for the evening. We will definitely be back. Thank you for a very enjoyable evening.
