About the restaurant
This waterfront locale is historically known as the launching site of our country's first submarine, the H.L. Hunley. Poised at the breach between the Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic, you can enjoy a meal amongst the spectacular sunset views and balmy ocean breezes of the Isle of Palms. Come early and have a cocktail at the Rooftop Bar while enjoying amazing views before dining.

Farm-to-table
Downtown Charleston
About the restaurant
From chef, cookbook author and PBS star, Vivian Howard, LENOIR reminds people that the South is a nuanced place with a storied history and disparate terrain that shapes us as well as our food traditions. Here we cook to perpetuate, honor and evolve the cuisine of the rural, agricultural South, and we back it up with hospitality that buys into the idea that food with a story tastes better. Named for Vivian’s home county in eastern North Carolina, LENOIR exalts the pillars of Southern hospitality and leaves people feeling like they are guests in our home rather than patrons in our restaurant.

Tony was our server and honestly, one of the best servers I have EVER had at any restaurant establishment. He was super personable and bent over backwards to help. He was a great instructor and guide. We also were pleasantly surprised as we enjoyed the music as well as the fact we were quickly ushered to our table. I give the BBQ experience a 12/10 pineapples (yes, we are in Charleston after all) rating. BTW, you must try the grilled pineapples. Check this place out — you will not regret it.

Very nice atmosphere waiter was attentive & knowledgeable of the menu. If it hadn’t been so hot we would have checked out the rooftop bar. Food was very good, we had the fish special & smoked ribeye. The only minus was the appetizer of baked cornbread was a little dry.
