Went to dinner here with family and loved it. The service is fantastic. The waiters are knowledge of the food and wine and actually helped us select some restaurants to visit on our trip home through Charleston. It is pleasant to sit outside on the porch or inside. I love the menu. I had shrimp and grits first night which... More

Nice little cafe with a nice group of staff. The French fries are really good. I had the short rib sandwich and it was pretty good. Enjoyed it.

We chose this restaurant based on the reviews. We were disappointed by the very limited menu and the high prices for what you get!! 12 dollar appetizers and 10 dollars for a small glass of wine turned us off at this restaurant. Not to mention the 30 minute wait for the check after we were done. Last but not least,... More

The BLT had fried green tomatoes and an egg. The pulled pork was the most elegant I've ever had. Lovely food. Love sitting on the porch.

We just loved eating at 29 South!! We ate on the front porch and enjoyed watching people stroll by. The service was excellent and the food was wonderful. It was a perfect lunch with friends.

Great service, overall good food. We were in town for Georgia/Florida Weekend. We sat outside on the porch. Our appetizer was the jar of polenta but we didn't care for it, maybe because we're not big polenta folks not sure. We were trying something different and it just wasn't for us. Amazingly enough though the waiter took it off our... More

We were a large group in town for a conference, but the folks at 29 South handled us beautifully. The food was incredible, especially the grits with truffles and arugula and the short ribs. They were wonderfully flexible with the person in our group who needed gluten-free. I will definitely be back!

The atmosphere was friendly and casual (everything from jeans and shorts to dressy casual). Kid and family friendly. The food was creative and well prepared. The lobster corn dogs and the fried green tomatoes with goat cheese appetizers and the shrimp and andouille with grits were excellent. Also an excellent breakfast menu (frittatas, waffles, biscuits and the traditionals). Very good,... More

They serve very imaginative and tasty food, in a reasonably quiet atmosphere. Let your taste buds roam, and eat for fun. I think they have been named for the best chef in town.

We tried 29 south while we were here on a trip with our company. The food was fantastic and the service fabulous. Bo was our waiter and he was very knowledge about all of the dishes and the wine. Great guy. We had the shrimp and grits, and the short ribs. Best ever.
