If you’re staying in a luxury house on Isle of Palms, chances are the first thing that pops in your mind as far as cuisine to feed the folks in your Charleston beach house is seafood.

To be sure, the Lowcountry has some top-notch offerings in that department.  A trip to Charleston isn’t complete without trying some local oysters, she-crab soup, shrimp and grits, or a myriad of other delicacies fresh from the local waters of the Atlantic, right outside your luxury house on Isle of Palms.

Charleston has built quite a reputation for gourmet cuisine, and the recent Wine + Food Festival drew folks from across the globe to sample Lowcountry cooking.

You might not think of steak when you think of Charleston  –  but think again.  One of our very own was recently named as the best steakhouse in America by the people who post reviews in Yelp.
