While in Charleston we relied on coupons to help scope out and select places to eat.
During our rainy walk around the historic district of Charleston we stopped in at Tommy Condon’s, an Irish pub at 160 Church St. Since we ate there for lunch we got $3 off an entree. If we’d ate there for supper, it would have been $5 off.
Right now, the Charleston Area Convention and Visitors Bureau has a coupon to the restaurant for buy one entree, get another free.
For lunch, Chris got fish and chips and I got shrimp and grits, a dish you should try anytime you’re in or near the Low Country (or here). We also shared a cup of She-Crab soup, another Low Country dish that I wanted to eat before leaving the coast.
|Mmmm … she-crap soup with some sherry! A perfect way to begin the meal.|
|Shrimp and Grits, which included tomatoes, ham and green onions. I’ve never had shrimp and grits with tomatoes before, so that was a welcome surprise.|
|Chris’ delicious lunch of fish ‘n chips. It wasn’t even greasy. Not in the slightest!
Fun Fact: This is the only type of seafood Chris will eat.
Tommy Condon’s should be your go-to place for a quick bite if you’re walking the Museum Mile or exploring historic Charleston. There are other restaurants in the area, most within walking distance, so be sure to check them out, too.
