Table & Main is worth a special trip just for the Charleston She-Crab Soup. Superb. Great turn-out. Touch of chili oil added just right touch of zest. Small heap of crab in center, tasted as good as it looked. Server said chef prides this as best outside of Charleston itself, and he could be right. Meal was quite reasonable in price for the results. I asked for vegetarian special, and was told if I wished, I had option of constructing my own out of side dish offerings, and I did so. The roast beets were wonderful and plentiful, larger serving than usual, and only a few decorative sprigs of greenery, unlike other places which tend to hide beets under a green forest which can require a search party to discover them. Ample dabs of goat cheese made this memorable. Enjoyed dessert and the drinks. Server Julie was professional, knowledgeable, considerate and attentive. Unlike other restaurants which scatter waitstaff assignments amid a number of tables to make it the staff seem more numerous than it is, Table & Main assigns servers to a compact cluster of tables which makes it possible for them to be much more alert to the diners' needs at any time. Two things to know, however: parking lot in rear is cramped. And noise level in wood-dominated dining room sections in this old house can be rather high. TIP: be sure to make reservations well in advance. My wife and I dined early before a local theatre performance. When we left only a little after 7 p.m., the small bar area and outside porch were jammed with as many as two dozen people waiting for seating. Yes, it's worth the wait, but much better to plan ahead.
