Where to Eat When In Town for Charleston Wine + Food

Tips and advice for getting the most from the festival

Jesse Volk/Charleston Wine + Food

Those in town for the Charleston Wine + Food obviously have plans to consume as much Holy City goodness as possible, but the choices can be overwhelming. In between bites at the Culinary Village or the Signature Dinners, visitors may want to venture out, so here are various guides to eating, drinking, and partying during the festival.

Start with the big guide to dining in Charleston.

Check out the Eater Heatmap for the hottest restaurants in Charleston or the Eater 38 for the essentials. Having trouble deciding? Get off the peninsula with some underrated restaurant choices.

Once 4:00 p.m. nears, remember happy hours are a legal practice in South Carolina. Stop by one of Charleston’s newest bars for a drink. For those who went too hard with the booze, there’s plenty of help for the hangover, including brunch and coffee.

Need free wifi? There’s a map for that.

Looking for cheap oysters? There’s a map for that.

Consider a fringe event or one of the Charleston Wine + Food tickets still available.

Best of luck out there.
