Old Village Post House
The Inn at Old Village Post House boasts an in-hotel restaurant highlighting southern delicacies on a menu of soups and starters, salads, steaks, and chef specialties, like crab cakes with creamed corn, leeks, and crispy truffle potato strings sweet potato gnocchi with spinach, dried cherries, goat cheese, pecans, and brown butter sauce. The dining space is elegant in its décor, lit by brass chandeliers and wreathed with Impressionist oil paintings of landscapes.
Post House is best described as a coastal tavern with a few rooms stashed upstairs—the kind of place where you can easily overeat and stumble back to bed afterwards. Tucked away in Mount Pleasant, it’s a respite from the hustle and bustle of King Street traffic, serving up seasonal fare and classic cocktails just steps from Hog Island Channel.
The food: Charleston doesn’t fall short on seafood, but here you’ll find a “coastal offerings” section that brings the sea (legit straight from the waterways out back) right to the table. The Market Ceviche is always a hit, and it’s wise to order at least a dozen of whatever oysters are available that day. The Fish Cassoulet is ideal for sharing—or not—while the restaurant touts the Crispy Butterbean Burger, with melty American cheese and comeback sauce, as a tried-and-true staple.
