The Obstinate Daughter - Sullivans Island Ratings and Reviews
One of the best meals I have ever had. I had a short rib rigatoni that was very tasty. my partner had a shrimp pizza, which we shared. Thin and delicious. We also shared the Mediterranean mussels which were terrific. The service was great, the atmosphere was cozy and the special touches were on spot. Highly recommended and would return any time in the area.
Obstinate Daughter is our go-to restaurant when we have visitors, when we want to get together with friends or when we just want a great meal without driving downtown. I love the oysters, the ricotta gnocchi, almost any appetizer and most of the specials. O/D is always busy, but we've never had a problem with friendly or attentive service. Parking is the biggest problem, but, once you get there, it's a divine experience.
Great meal @ the Obstinate Daughter. Nice local regional food selections, as well as a really appetizing pizza menu that we had to resist dipping into, as we wanted a lighter and varied lunch. Great, well-branded look of the environment (& Staff too) - Except for a momentary bit of confusion on access to a booth for 2 (which we did get, as the place wasn't packed) very good vibes and excellent food. Will be back next time we're on Sullivan's Island.
What a treat! Our waiter suggested we pick an itme from each section & do share plates & that was the way to enjoy this great spot. Started with 1 doz raw oysters- 3 different sauces.
Brussel sprout dish was amazing! This is the way to eat your veggies. Pasta delicious and so was the pizza. same room for dessert.
Loved the atmosphere & service wa top notch. Full bar & nice wine/beer choices.
Top recommendation. Don;t go without reservations.
Charming space on beautiful Sullivan's Island. Worth the short ride out of Charleston. Small plates are large enough for a dinner but the house-made gnocchi and pizzas as entrees are irresistible! Staff is outstanding -- knowledgable and so enthusiastic! Loved everything about it!
Obstinate Daughter is our favorite restaurant, for the quality of the food, the great service and the fact that we don't have to drive downtown to get a fine-dining experience. I love the oysters at OD, and all the appetizers are great. My husband is a huge fan of the octopus. We also love the pasta with short ribs. I miss the berry cobblers and look forward to their return with cooler weather. The only problem is finding a parking place on busy weekend nights.
Have been there before - usually really good ambiance, great laid back and relaxing feel, but for some reason they were blaring rap music on a Tuesday night. Really killed the vibe of the night. Service was fine, food was great, but they rushed us in and out in less than an hour - for drinks and food. Not what I expect when I'm trying to have a nice date night, relax with nice food and drink, take our time etc. That's what we've been able to do on previous dates there, but goodness that certainly was not the case this time. Not what I expected from previous experiences at O/D. If that's the new norm there, we won't be back. The food is amazing though so I'm sure we will give it another shot - hopefully just an off night.
My husband and I have dined at the OD several times. We have never been disappointed. This reservation was made at the last minute, and all that was available were early times. But that was fine with us since we were hungry.
When we arrived, I asked for a booth - since they were all empty. The hostess said that they were for people with reservations (which I had). But I didn't press it.
The raw oysters and the mushroom/egg salad were divine! My husband really enjoyed his pasta. I ordered the tile fish special. It was good, but a little too salty and a little over cooked.
Overall, a good dinner!
Surprisingly wonderful experience. Great food, imaginatively presented. Young chefs added a modern twist on traditional dishes. We wanted to try everything! A definite gem in Charleston, SC. It was so good we drove back the next day for lunch. Thanks for two great meals!
We have been to OB many times but this was the first time this September, Found that there were a number of menu changes which are normally good but not so much this time. Teri had the pear salad . I don't know how they found the only prosciutto in the world with no flavor and a lack of salt but they did. In fairness once cooked the salumi did show its salt. I had a half dozen east coast oysters which were small an so so.
We ordered the garganelli with peas and it was superb , just the right balance of sauce and pasta. I had the sweet breads and here I feel the kitchen fell off the tracks by trying to do too much.
Sweetbreads are delicate and when sauteed quickly or poached it allows the flavor and texture of the glands to stand out. Here the kitchen wrapped the glands in prosciutto and deep fried them. The result was that the salt and the cure from the prosciutto completely overwhelmed the sweetbreads. I might as well have been eating fried chicken fingers for all the nuance that was present.
While disappointed this time we will be back as we have had excellent meals here and the menu will be changing this week as we head into fall.
We came here for a celebration of my daughters 29 th birthday. This place was perfect because young and "old" would appreciate the innovative and delicious foods, fun beer choices, good wines and comfy booths! It also helped that our server was terrific. He was well versed on the menu, and he was accommodating!
Really great experience.
Extraordinary experience for me and my companion. She had the Eggs in Purgatory and her facial expression with each bite told the story. I went with the Ricotta Ginocchi and was equally impressed. Too full for dessert but I purchased the cinnamon bun with carmel and pecans to go for breakfast the next day; the best cinnamon roll ever. In addition our server was attentive and had a joyous personality which only enhanced the dining experience. I look forward to frequent visits.
