Red Drum Restaurant
Chef/Owner Ben Berryhill brings top-notch Texan cuisine to Charleston at Red Drum, a chic gastropub serving wood-grilled steak and fresh seafood. It is named after a prized local fish, after all. The menu offers dishes like Breach Inlet clams atop pasta, local pickled shrimp in a Hot Shrimp & Chorizo Toast, and a market fish special that never disappoints. The cozy, friendly feel draws in plenty of locals, especially around the buzzy bar, and with none of the parking woes of downtown, you might find yourself a local here after a while, too.
