Charleston Restaurants and Thanksgiving Dinner 2009

My husband and I are traveling to Charleston for Thanksgiving (no kids!) and would like to gather a few suggestions on where to have Thanksgiving Dinner. We are staying on Market Street.

Any other helpful input would be much appreciated as this is our first trip to Charleston.

It depends on the type of Thanksgiving Meal you would like there are several very nice high end buffet style at $50-$75 a plate.

Grill 225- Excellent service and food traditional lowcountry and seafood.

Mills House Barbados Room- Traditional Southern Thanksgiving with excellent side dishes.

I have been to both of these locations. Another one I would like to try and have heard good things about is the Pennisula Grill.

If you want just a nice sit down meal with traditional choices and other options ,price $25-$30 I would suggest Poogans Porch, Swamp Fox at the Francis Marion Hotel. I have eaten at both places for Thanksgiving and it was done well.

Other places to check and see if they are serving would include Magnolias, Blossoms, High Cotton or Cypress these restaurants all serve traditional southern food and are excellent but I am unsure what they do on Thanksgiving.

All of the suggestions for Thanksgiving were great. I would especially agree with the recommendation to High Cotton. This restaurant is a step above a casual place, with a less hectic pace for diners. Good luck with your holiday celebration.

Magnolia's, Blossom and Cypress are all owned by the same people. It is unlikely that all 3 would be open on a holiday. (but possible)

Also Magnolia's is the only one that serves traditional southern, albeit a little on the modern side. Blossom has more of a Mediterranean twist and Cypress is somewhat more upscale nouveau American cuisine.

We have reservations for High Cotton for Thanksgiving - our first visit to

Charleston. Assume our 19 year old daughter will have the traditional turkey dinner they are offering but I already am contemplating straying and having shrimp and grits! Can't wait!
