Like neighborhood taverns of old, the new Tavern & Table on Shem Creek is designed to be that local gathering place where friends and family get together for classic cocktails and spectacular handcrafted food in an atmosphere as comfortable as your living room. The inventive menu, created by executive chef Katie Lorenzen-Smith, celebrates the flavors of the Lowcountry using as many local vendors, fishermen and farmers as possible. Tavern & Table is rustic but refined offering familiar flavors presented with a little flair and a lot of fun.

The menu was pretentious and misleading. We almost left before we ate due to the selection offered. The windows were dirty/salty. Clean them every night.
The waitress was very nice and cheerful. We left her a big tip.

Definitely would not tell others to go there. We have too many good restaurants in our area.

We got to experience Restaurant Week and sampled many wonderful dishes. The restaurant was our family's favorite on our recent trip to Charleston.

Honestly...having a meal during restaurant week is not necessarily the best way to try out a new restaurant due to limitation of the menu but here I go. The appetizers were great...the chick pea fries were off the chart along with the oyster Rockefeller fixed three ways.

The main course was very limited and I got the feeling were cooked in advance as everyone's meal was on the dry side.

The chocolate three ways was really good as the chocolate layers were not too sweet and not too overbearing...I ate all of mine.

I am not sure if I would go back for restaurant week but I would give it a try again. The question was asked if I would recommend to a friend...not yet but let me give it another try.

Apps were AMAZING ! That pimento cheese and bacon jam....... no words. Also Panko fried devil eggs.... stop. The flavors were delicious and I’m craving it again right now. Also we got the full seafood tower and the marinated fish was so tasty and spicy and the fresh seafood was just mouthwatering. The burnt end
Macaroni and cheese was very tasty but wish it had a little more brisket on top. The clam chowder was amazing and the beer and wine selections were plentiful. The brick oven was down for a bit when we were there but I heard the flatbreads were amazing as well. Great place for a date , the family, girls night , joe just to eat something comforting and amazing. Rustic charm and right on the water. Can’t wait to go back.

Cory, our server, was excellent. He was attentive, personable and efficient. I would say that your prices have increased somewhat. I asked for the House Chardonnay” and it was $14/glass. Yikes!

My husband and I went for a date at lunchtime and enjoyed our experience overall. We chose outdoor seating which felt less upscale than their indoor dining area. We thought Table and Tavern served generous portions for the price and the food was good.

Entertained a group visiting Charleston for the first time and they loved the location and the cuisine. Several attendees were from Europe and they had never enjoyed Lowcountry fare. Needless to say, they are now big fans!

Dynamite shrimp is quite tasty. House salad a bit hard to handle( extremely large pieces of lettuce). Had a special crunch wrap of the house burger and Husband has the grilled veggies.
Overall service was pretty good and restaurant is gorgeous.

fried deviled eggs were so good and the hot sauce they can with even better! can’t go wrong with the shrimp and grits and the mac n cheese is the perfect amount of cheesey.
i do wish they had happy hour at the table and not just the bar but i wish that of many places!

Not as nice for a special occasion as I had expected. Service and food was just average, noise level was too high for easy conversation. Always heard good things, but did not live up to the reputation.

Server took order and asked if our food was good. He never came around to refill iced teas even though we repeatedly tried to get his attention. We finally flagged down another server who took care of us. He never asked if we wanted dessert even though we were celebrating a birthday. We were just a table of 4 so we expected better service.

Unfortunately, they were out of 90% of their wines. We expected more out of the menu and overall experience. As a Charleston native, I want to support local businesses, but this last experience will resonate with me for a bit.

Just what we needed: dining on the water with good food, good service, and happy peeps. Had to try the fried deviled eggs....very interesting and unusual color. Brussel sprouts were very rich: thought they were roasted, but actually fried. Not a fan of the Bloody Mary.....too sweet.

I used to really enjoy this restaurant but they have really gone downhill. Food was not good, tons of kids, no parking, waitress seemed annoyed to have to serve us. It was a let down, and there are too many choices in Charleston to go back somewhere that doesn't measure up!
