We had a fabulous dining experience at Sorghum & Salt - in fact, this was our best dinner during our entire stay in Charleston. We sat at the Chef's Counter and did the tasting menu and wine pairing. The dishes were innovative, and delicious. Christian is an extremely creative and talented chef. We highly recommend doing the tasting menu / wine pairing, as it gives you a chance to talk to the chef, owner and entire staff, and try excellent wines you will have difficulty finding anywhere else. Sorghum & Salt is a must for anyone who loves great food and wine, local sourcing and fun conversation.

Food was good but small portions for the price. Won’t dine here again.

Absolutely amazing meal from beginning to end. The food, the service, the ambiance. Most unique, make you feel good eats of the Carolinas.

UPDATE: After dining at a similar restaurant in Chicago, we are confident this is among the best meals we ever had. Nothing can compare.

We sat at the Chief’s counter and it was such a neat experience. They talked to us the whole time and every suggestion they offered was fantastic! Great date night.

Overall a big, "WOW This is Great." The food was excellent pairing of tastes. We tried six small plates between the four of us and were filled to the brim. The eggplant sausage was especially unusual and great, even for an eggplant hater like myself. Vegans and vegetarians will find plenty options. There is a Chef's tasting though you have to sit at the bar to order.

The food was absolutely delicious and the service was excellent. We were surprised at the cost of wine (by the glass and bottle) and how large our bill was. For a date night with another couple with babysitters back at home, we were aghast at the $400 bill. It was a very expensive night. We love everything about S&S but the price.

Really inventive and unbelievably tasty meal. I have been twice and simply allowed the server/kitchen to bring plates (like a tasting menu). Amazing combination of ingredients and sublime flavors.
It is loud and laid back. Not the best for formal romantic dinner. Good for fun, relaxed, outstanding meal!

If you're vegetarian, you'll love the food choices. Even if you're not, the food is amazing! Ask for good wine recommendations you pair with food.

I had a customer coming to town, and chose Sorghum and Salt on a whim, wanting to find somewhere different downtown from the regular entertaining spots. What a great choice! The fresh, local ingredients combined with creative flavor combinations made this a special visit. Everyone in my party raved about it, and said that they would be back.

Best food I’ve had in Charleston. So much so, that I actually can’t believe how easily I’ve been able to score a last minute table more than once. Can’t wait to see what’s on the menu next time! Fantastic service too!

This is the BEST restaurant we have been to. The food is nothing short of brilliant. Every bite is packed full of flavor and left us wanting more. The guys in the kitchen work together as a cohesive unit and put out brilliant food. We will be back every time we come to Charleston. This is a MUST to any local or visitor. Thank you for an amazing experience!

Fantastic experience! Our server could describe every dish in tantalizing detail. She was able to help us navigate proportions, base on size of each dish, as well as what is popular with other diners. Foods were perfectly flavored and gave so many delights to the taste buds! A+ all around!

In a city crowded with great food options, this one is a standout! Innovative, incredible tasting selections offered in small plate format. I wanted to order everything on the menu. THE best eating experience THE Best food I had in a week of restaurant visits. If I lived here, this is only place would go!
