About the restaurant
Tavern & Table is the dream child of Cecil & Dianne Crowley, Andy Palmer & Jeff Condon. After years of working together on various successful restaurant concepts, they wanted to bring together the very best aspects of fine dining and casual hospitality in a beautiful and comfortable setting. Tavern & Table is more than a restaurant, it was created to be a gathering place where people sit in comfort and share small plates for the table or enjoy a hearty meal. The bartenders know the fine art of cocktail making and their interest in flavor and presentation comes alive in not only in the food but in barrel aged cocktails that are created in-house.

We were visiting Charleston for July 4th. Made reservations for 6pm and showed up a little early due to the holiday. They accommodated us right away even though it was busy. We sat inside. Michael, our waiter is a pro. He’s quick, attentive, and genuinely friendly. It was a pleasure to dine here. The atmosphere and decor are welcoming; elegant yet casual. The food was served promptly and perfectly prepared. Everything we ordered was delicious. Besides the artichoke and crab dip with warm, toasted pita (really yummy), we ordered the flat iron steak with chimichurri (the smashed potatoes with roasted garlic confit that accompany the steak are a perfect complement) and the shrimp louis salad which was super fresh and full of a great assortment of greens and veggies along with plump large shrimp, hard boiled eggs, avocado and a bright, slightly sweet, refreshing dressing. This place defers 5 stars all the way.
