We will be coming to Charleston May 15-22. I came to Spoleto 2 years ago with my sisters. We ate at Peninsula Grill, Cru Cafe, Tristin's, SNOB, Magnolias and Hanks. None of the family coming with me this time has ever been to Charleston. Husband and 2 sons with girl friends, 25 and 23 years old. We will be staying on Daniel's Island. Husband is history buff (esp Civil War), one son wants to take girl friend to water park since she is from NY and has never been to one. We are from AL, and changed our vacation plans from Destin, FL to Charleston at the last minute because of the Gulf oil spill. The condo has a grill and we hope to find some fresh shrimp and fish to grill (any ideas?) in addition to eating out at some great places. We would probably go to the beach one day, Sullivan or Folly? Sullivan appears to be a good bit closer. Any good places at either beach, or should we pack a lunch? Husband wants to see Hundley and probably Ft. Sumter. Aything around either of them? I loved King Street shopping last time, but alas, the 3 men are not shoppers, though we will have 2 cars. What about the deep sea fishing for the guys? Sorry, this is off the food subject. So far I am thinking for lunch Cru Cafe (loved it last time), Amen Street Raw Bar (a couple of them love raw oysters), Five Loaves, maybe Magnolia (liked this last time for brunch) or Hominy Grill. For dinner, McCrady's, Bowen's Island, FIG, maybe Trattoria Lucca Sunday dinner. How is Fast & French? I guess we could just as easily go to Mt. Pleasant as old town Charleston, so what are the recs there? Oh, and the kids might want some happening bar scene (cheap) and music.
Thanks for your help! Gail
