Lots of folks have posted about high end Charleston restaurants, but there's a fine, off the main drag place that does a great job of traditional Southern cooking. See Wee Restaurant is in Awendaw, SC, just a few minutes north of Mt. Pleasant on Highway 17. This is a very family friendly place that looks like an old country story/fish house. Sodas are served in glass bottles, seafood is fresh, collards are cooked perfectly, red rice is loaded with sausage, and the desserts (over 10 different ones each day) are baked daily by local church ladies. We sampled 6 different desserts, and with the exception of the surprisingly dry coconut cake, all were winners. Oh, and to go to the bathroom, you do have to go outside first.
Here's a photo of L'il Varmint #3 with some liquid refreshment:
If you're staying in Charleston, I doubt you'd ever get this far north. But if you're driving through, or headed to Bull Island, it's really quite a nice, simple diversion.
