6 Must-try Spots for Brunch in Charleston

Brunch tine is arguably everyone’s favorite time of the week. And in Charleston, there are a plethora of restaurants offering up delicious versions of this weekend hybrid meal. Here are our picks for must-try brunch spots in Charleston!


Whether you dine inside or on their ivy-lined outdoor patio, 492’s gorgeous setting levels up the brunch experience. The Sunday brunch menu is full of mouthwatering favorites, such as the double cheeseburger with pastrami and challah French toast with maple and berry compote. Pair that with a handcrafted cocktail and you got yourself the perfect brunch fix.

82 Queen
Since 1982, 82 Queen has been a favorite for locals and tourists alike. Nestled in the Historic French Quarter, the restaurant offers an eclectic variety of brunch options in a storybook setting. We recommend house favorites like barbecue shrimp and grits and the Southern fried chicken and biscuits.


Chef Sean Brock’s farm-to-table restaurant is renowned for Southern standards done up with the utmost care. The rotating menu features a wide variety of options, ranging from sweet to savory, but mainstays like shrimp and grits, bloody marys and cured meats are what put Husk on the map for brunch.

Jasmine Porch at The Sanctuary

Kiawah Island might be a bit off the beaten path, but Jasmine Porch at The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island Golf Resort makes it worth the drive. Every Sunday, the popular Jazz Buffet Brunch is highlighted by delicious Lowcountry food and spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean. The menu features local seafood and produce as well as house-made charcuterie and Sanctuary chefs specialities.

Lowcountry Bistro

As its name might suggest, this casual yet classic eatery serves up traditional Lowcountry cooking — but with a twist. Located across the street from Charleston City Market, Lowcountry Bistro combines familiar Southern comfort foods with Creole and French flavors. Try the chicken and waffles with pecan butter and vanilla and bacon cornbread waffle with a bourbon reduction. Pair it with one of their signature cocktails like the Market Street sangria for the ultimate experience.

The Darling Oyster Bar
If you love a seafood and brilliant bloody Marys, The Darling Oyster Bar is a must. The charming restaurant serves up some of the freshest — you guessed it — oysters in town. Non-seafood lovers will have plenty to choose from as well, from French toast to omelettes served with potato casserole.
