Pls critique my choices for Charleston

We will have 3 breakfasts, 3 lunches, and 2 dinners in Charleston. We already have reservations at Husk for the Saturday night. I prepared a list of places to consider, please critique. We don't like to eat heavy all day, especially with heat and lots of walking. We will be visiting Boone Hall in Mt. Pleasant and will be eating lunch near there one day. We are staying at the HI - Riverview, so have included a few places off Rt. 17. Here is the list:

Breakfast - Hominy Grill, (DD has friend at Col of Charleston, this will be close by), Wild Flour Pastry, Caviar & Bananas, 3 Little Birds (near hotel), Charleston's Cafe (on way to Boone Hall)

Lunch - Jack's Cosmic Dogs (near Boone Hall), Alluette's Cafe, Cru Cafe, Dave's Carry Out (where can we go to actually eat?), Early Bird Diner (near hotel)

Dinner - Cru Cafe, Magnolias, Anson's, Blossom, Coast, Hank's

We love seafood and will choose our Friday night dinner based on how well seafood is prepared.
We have Sunday brunch reservations at High Cotton, is that good? We are leaving CHS after brunch and will have a 2.5 hour drive and plan on a light dinner, where else would you go for a nice brunch (non-alcoholic)?

We like to have choices and be spur of the moment, but probably need a reservation for Friday night, please help critique our choices. My 20 yo college DD is adventerous, but not overly so. She likes well prepared but common food, so I figured Southern cuisine will be good for her. Thanks in advance for your help!
