American | Myrtle Beach, Myrtle Beach

Very lovely place. Upscale. Food was different from most restaurants which is good. One concern is that our meals did not come out together. I need my food hot so I had to begin eating alone. I noticed the same with the table next to us. Something that needs working on. And my plate did not LOOK like the photo! More

Fork & Plough
Fork & Plough
American | Greenville, Greenville

Shawn Kelly, Roddy Pick and Chad Bishop of Greenbrier Farms met during Pastured Poultry Week in Charleston. The friendship was further fostered through a mutual, longtime passion for and belief that eating locally should not be occasional, but a part of daily life. Hense the inspiration for Fork and Plough. Here we celebrate the importance of bringing the community closer to its local farms by making its food accessible to its residents and visitors. We’re raising the bar with delicious ingredients and a passion for our community. Fork & Plough is a neighborhood spot. A place where you and your family can drop in on any night of the week and dine on high-quality seasonal eats. We serve lunch and dinner throughout the week, as well as weekend brunch. More

Juju
Juju
American | Mount Pleasant, Charleston

The concept for Ju Ju was developed as a result of years of extensive travel and business dealings throughout the West Indies. The sensory pleasures of the region could best be captured by offering a venue with unique and authentic Caribbean flavors, ambiance, aesthetics, and sounds. The menu was developed by the owners in concert with culinary personnel from Jamaica, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
We believe that eating isn't just about feeding your body. It's about nourishing the soul, too. And life is too short for mediocre soul food. We make sure every dish that we serve satisfies your entire being. Crispy, savory, sweet, juicy, satisfying. Whatever you crave is what we want to serve.More
