Review: Parson Jack’s Cafe

It’s no secret that we like to explore an area through its food. We learned that there’s a small cafe called Parson Jack’s near our apartment that makes its own corned beef. It’s also puppy-friendly, though there weren’t any furry friends there when we visited (possibly because it was pouring rain and wet dog is…

Beaufort, SC and Hunting Island State Park

January 7, 2012 – What to do on a nice, warm winter weekend in Charleston, SC? One option is to drive down Highway 17 to Beaufort and Hunting Island State Park. Beaufort is a beautiful small town with a great waterfront park. They also have a fantastic bagel and coffee shop, Palm and Moon Bagel…

Review: Huck’s Lowcountry Table

In Isle of Palms and looking for a good spot for dinner?  We recommend Huck’s Lowcountry Table.  The she crab soup is very good, with generous amounts of crab and a hint of nutmeg.  If you like crab, you’ll enjoy it; even if you don’t like crab, it’s worth at least at least a spoon…

A few draft beverages were sampled; the draft menu is not extensive, but the drafts were well poured and there were a few local brews on tap. We started…

Restaurant Review: Sabatino’s NY Pizza

Sabatino’s NY Pizza has some of the best pizza we’ve had outside of NYC, and they’re hands down the best pizza we’ve had south of the Mason Dixon line. We tried a pie with sausage, mushrooms, and onions, and can’t wait to try their pepperoni. The pizza’s ready quickly – a large cooks in just 5-10 minutes. The result…

Restaurant Review: Jack’s Cosmic Dogs

Jack’s recently opened a new Cosmic Dogs location in West Ashley. Hot dogs, draft root beer and awesome fries? Yes, please!  We headed over for a pleasant mid-week dinner date. We tried the corn dog and cosmic dog, and split a basket of fries and a draft root beer. Both dogs were beefy and delicious. The corn…

Restaurant Review: Magnolia’s

Saturday evening we went out for a belated date night dinner at Magnolias, in downtown Charleston. The restaurant is very pretty inside, with a black and white tiled floor, very, very high ceilings, and two walls of mirrors (the other walls are the bar, and a long wall of windows). We were seated against one…
