    Halibut was the Special for the evening and the presentation sounded very inviting. However we knew that we all wanted Duck is it is always exceptional. The best around except maybe in Toulouse, FR. Joseph gave an outstanding performance in service. Always a memorable evening at SNOB..

    We went here for an anniversary dinner. Despite being with our 2 year old, we were given a romantic booth and friendly attentive service. We both enjoyed the Grilled Peach salad with candied walnuts and tart dressing. My wife's Grouper was delicious as was my steak. Our server was so pleasant and didn't bat at eye regarding our son's peanut allergy.

    I thought the food and the service was great! We had a very good experience, but I wouldn't say is romantic since there are no private areas. We were lucky with our waitress because she was from the same city that we were visiting from. Probably, the only disappointment are the high taxes applied by South Carolina to dinner and beverages; but the restaurant is not responsible for this situation.

    Consistently great food and service. We live in Charleston and if we don't plan a week ahead of time, it is difficult to get a reservation. That's how popular the restaurant is with locals and visitors. Great for lunch and dinner. If you are visiting and want to dine at SNOB, I recommend you make a reservation. My husband had the grilled pork chop and I had grilled salmon both perfectly prepared.

    Have eaten here lots of times and SNOB never fails to be great! The squash goat cheese custard is outstanding as is the peach salad (delicious perfectly grilled peach). Always busy (especially on a Saturday night) but we were seated promptly and approached by a server almost immediately. Our server, while efficient, lacked any personality and spoke only when necessary. This was fine for us as we live in Charleston but might be a letdown for out-of-towners looking for some conversation. The lack of server interaction was a bit unusual for SNOB who has an excellent fine dining waitstaff. Still, the food was excellent as always! This is my favorite restaurant in Charleston.

    Dined on 7/11/2014
    My wife is a crab cake connoisseur, so, upon seeing the crab reviews for Slightly North of Broad, I booked a reservation. She ordered the crab cake appetizer and, before it arrived, she said "I'll eat half and you eat half". Long story short, I got the first and last bite..... And I only got the last bite cause I think she felt guilty. She has eaten a LOT of crab cakes at a LOT of restaurants and she said these were one of her favorites of all time.

    having dined here before, i expected better - the service was delayed - seating us 20 minutes after reservation and taking awhile to get to our table. when i specified an item not be included on dish, the item came on the dish, the server noted it was there and proceeded to walk away from table. should have acknowledged mistake and replaced but didn't - not sure we will go back - too many other great restaurants in area to waste time on mediocre service....

    SNOB was our favorite meal on our recent visit to Kiawah/Charleston area. They used local products and the favors were so fresh that they just seemed to burst in your mouth. In particular they had access to peaches and blackberries the night we were there and they used them to the fullest potential. I had a "Farmer's cocktail" with blackberries and gin that was so crisp and tasty and a grilled peach salad which was to die for good. For the main course I had Wahoo and my husband had the pork chop both of which were cooked to perfection. We ended with homemade peach cobbler which was as good as my mom's version. All the staff were friendly and efficient including the hostess and our server, Caroline. We had a wonderful experience.

    The experience of dining at Slightly North of Broad (S.N.O.B, great short name, by the way), was a highlight of our trip to Charleston. The elegant atmosphere greets a diner as they enter and sets a high expectation for the event to follow and it does not disappoint. The attentive wait staff were efficient, knowledgeable and friendly. Our drinks were delivered and a selection of entrees were completed with our server highlighting the best of various dishes and their influence from local vendors and farms. I had the scallops served in a delectable broth while my wife enjoyed the chicken roulade special of the evening. Both were culinary gems that showed a deft use of local ingredients to highlight flavors to perfection. Fantastic meal!

    SNOB is great! This is the second time I've visited here and I just love walking into the place! My husband and I have a favorite restaurant in our hometown of Aiken and I said "if I lived here, this would be my Willcox"! We shared an appetizer (cheese platter), a medium plate (carpaccio), and an entree (shrimp and grits) ... and all were awesome! Just delicious! But ... I must say that our service was just the best I've probably ever had! Here was a server (Allison) who knew all of the details about the specials and could answer any question we could pose. I don't know if all the servers are that knowledgeable but it sure made for a great dining experience! I highly recommend this restaurant!

    Dined on 7/2/2014
    Wonderful service and a charming atmosphere were hallmarks of our visit to this restaurant! We were traveling and wished to taste some of the local specialties. We ordered a chilled gazpacho as a starter. It was flavorful but far over-salted. When told that there was another batch in the back, we agreed to try it again, to no avail. There was no difference in flavor. The staff sweetly offered a different starter- stacked heirloom tomatoes with mozarella, which was delicious! The shrimp and grits entree was also heavily salted, in my opinion, but this may have been due to the andouille sausage which was a special addition of the house. Our server was fun and very courteous as was the maitre'd.

    If it weren't for the fabulous, lead-by-example, hard-working manager, Peter Pierce, we might have left. Our waiter was DEFINITELY A SNOB! He acted as if he were "too good" to be waiting on us. He was the only poor experience in the place, but his attitude and lack of attention to our table was a huge turn-off!!! The food, drinks, and atmosphere were otherwise terrific.

    Long recommended to us, we set a luncheon date and were extremely pleased. Excellent service from door to table. Tasty, but healthy menu items. Shrimp and grits with ham and sausage, a luncheon delight. Blueberry Sangria hit the spot on a hot, 90 deg., day. Ambience features food not frills. Our reservation was for 11:45 am which beat the big lunch crowd - highly recommend this for a more relaxing lunch. Place was full when we left - lots of business folks as well as vacationers. Wife had Chicken Medley and she loved the flavor of the chicken breast with pesto. Ample portions, don't need appetizers. Had a small side salad with my shrimp and grits which made a hearty lunch. Cornbread served was like homemade - delicious.

    I have eaten at this restaurant several times and have found the food to be inconsistent. I recently ordered the NY strip special and half of it had so much gristle it could not be chewed. My dining companion ordered the same thing and hers was worse. I do not think I will return as they cannot maintain consistency.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 6/27/2014
    Food was excellent, which makes giving this restaurant low marks overall somewhat difficult. In my opinion, at this price point, the food is not the only thing that needs to be outstanding. We'd heard about SNOB for years and had a difficult time getting a reservation. Finally we were successful, but then let down by a less than stellar experience. Most disappointing to me was the attitude of our waitress. She seemed very frustrated with not being able to turn our table quickly enough and made it evident in actions and facial expressions. The noise level was high, but what also surprised me was how loudly the restaurant played Top 40 music in an already acoustically challenged atmosphere. We spent $350 on dinner for 4.
