Charleston without breaking the bank.

Long time lurker here. This is the first trip to Charleston for my wife and I. We are planning on going the week of thanksgiving mon-thurs, but will be leaving to come home on Thanksgiving day. We love all kinds of food and are adventurous eaters. We would like to experience whatever is local (low country) and eat some damn good food. I don't want to spend $200+ on every dinner, however. We will be there for 3 nights and 4 days. We love sitting at the bar and chatting with our servers, and find the experience to sometimes be better than the dining room. Basically, we are not opposed to eating tapas style and sharing an entree at the bar. We love NOLA, and are able to do it on the cheap with numerous happy hours and lunch deals at some of the cities finest restaurants. Is there anything like that in Charleston? I'm fine with one $200+ meal, but would like to experience Charleston's best without going crazy. The restaurants on our radar are Husk, FIG, and McCrady's. I have heard Pearlz, High Cotton, and Social have good Happy Hours, but we are interested in both great food and drink. Any thoughts? Thank you so much!
