"We recently on a Monday night and to our surprise, Rosie's was quite busy. In fact, just about every table was filled. It is a testament to the restaurant-its food and service. This was our first dinner at Rosie's and all four of us were very pleased. We had some traditional dishes: chicken parmesan, veal dimartino, ravioli, and penne with a vodka type sauce. All were generous portions and very tasty. The service was attentive and helpful. We will sure look to return at a later date."

Culinary School graduate and James Beard honoree Chef Navjot Arora has put together a unique menu borrowing from the vast culinary diversity of India.<br />We truly believe great food starts with great ingredients. We procure only fresh, wholesome ingredients with no artificial flavorings or additives, local produce wherever possible, all natural poultry, free range lamb, wild not farmed seafood. We grind our own spices to ensure freshness.<br /><br />The New York Times gave high marks to our succulent tandoori cooked meats and referred to our sauces as superbly complex.” Vegetarians will feel like royalty” says The Journal News, referring to our delicious curries and vegetable appetizers. Our menu reflects Chef Navjot’s true passion for food that began from a very young age. He further honed his skills and learnt from the very best master chefs at the Taj Group of Hotels <br /><br />The menu offers a variety of combination platters, along with biryanis, curries, tandoori entrees.

"We were looking for a place to dine and with little discussion we selected this one. We had only heard good things from friends and we were not disappointed. While the reservation was on the early side(6pm), so the restaurant was relatively quiet but gradually filled. The service was highly attentive-the water glasses always near full. All of the selections were flavorable(maybe a bit on the spicy side) and very well presented. We enjoyed the sample vegetarian appetizers and one shrimp and one lamb(with yogurt-curry) entree and these were all terrific.
Will definitely return with friends as this is a great place to share appetizers and entrees.

"Went with friends on a Saturday night and were delighted with the experience. The service was quite good-attentive, friendly, helpful and patient. The food was very good, although these are somewhat small dishes and a bit pricey. We enjoyed everything that we ordered and sampled from others and it was quite relaxing, even for a Saturday night. Never rushed even though we spent a long time at the table and were nearly the last ones out of the restaurant.
Plan to return in the future-will probably think of this for special occasions as the price is a bit much given the amount of food that needs to be ordered.

"We dined on a Friday night and couldn't be more pleased. Our waiter was great-spent plenty of time and thoroughly explained the dishes and how best to order. We chose the Friday special-a succulent Maine lobster that was quite a bit larger than what you usually get. The squash soup that accompanied the dish and the panna cotta were both great-very tasty and well presented. The other order consisted of the fish stew chowder-also very good with a lot of fish, followed by the razor clams(excellent taste but too small) and then the oysters and beef tartare. The last one is a bit unusual and interesting-the oysters for me were the best part.
Quite an experience-excellent food in a noisy place and one that is quite pricey.

"I now understand why it is so difficult to get a reservation-the food and overall experience was terrific. I can't say enough about the wait staff-attentive, very pleasant and helpful. We shared the mussels-a very good amount(more than many other places) which was absolutely delicious. This dish was ordered by all of the surrounding tables. We then enjoyed the arugula salad with duck confit and followed it by one of the fish specials. I would eat here every week if I lived in Charleston. This is a not miss restaurant-just reserve weeks in advance."

SIMPLY LOWCOUNTRY: Lowcountry Bistro focuses only on the freshest ingredients since all of the food we cook is from scratch. On the menu you will find cult favorites like Chicken and Waffles to Lowcountry classics like Shrimp and Grits. We also believe that great food can be affordable. Many of our lunch dishes are under $10. <br /><br />Our goal as a restaurant is to serve high quality, delicious food, at a fair price. We hope you agree after your meal at Lowcountry Bistro. <br /><br />SISTER RESTAURANT TO 82 QUEEN<br />As an icon of the city for over 30 years, we have seen restaurants come and go. We pride ourselves on the fact that we were one of the first original Lowcountry cuisine restaurants to open their doors in the city. We know Lowcountry and after diligently researching Market Street restaurants, have come to the conclusion that what the area needs is a true, authentic Lowcountry restaurant.

"Although we had seen some mixed reviews, our experience was quite good. Service was attentive. Food was very decent. Fried okra and shrimp and grits were quite good. Atmosphere is simple and pleasant. I would return for a good solid meal."

The Old Village Post House is a neighborhood tavern and inn nestled in Mount Pleasant’s historic Old Village. In feel and décor, it’s as comfortable as your best friend’s home – from the original worn pine floors to our lively tavern. We delight in the quality of our producers and devote ourselves to skillful preparation that brings joy to both maker and guest. We believe the tastiest fare is even better with noteworthy wines and cocktails. And, we believe in only the warmest hospitality, whether you're joining us for an event, a cocktail, brunch, dinner or an overnight stay.

"We were greatly impressed with the overall experience. Service was very impressive and attentive. Food well prepared and presented. Loved the atmosphere and would want to eat outside(unfortunately it was drizzling on our night) as it is quite attractive. When I return to Charleston, I will definitely visit the Old Village Post house again."
