This large, open and modern upstairs facility is complemented by a good lunch menu accompanied by a wine and beer list that will satisfy most people's tastes. The service is attentive and the prices reasonable. The fish tacos can be recommended and the salads are very good, too.

About the only thing on St. Armands that doesn't shout out OLD. Nice menu of plates and full meals. Good bartenders. Check out the happy hour to save a little coin. Although not on the water they have a nice "roof-top" feel outdoors (partially) bar to watch the tourist shuffle around.

The Shore Diner is located right on St. Armands Circle (well worth visiting) and I am not sure why they call it a diner; this is a classy restaurant with excellent food. For my meal I started with the caprese salad (I would not recommend), and then we shared an order of calamari. The calamari was mixed into an Asian... More

I asked some local restaurant staff where they would go for a great dinner and this was the pic. They didn't lead me astray. Start to finish it was a very nice experience. Very creative menu options. Very courteous, knowledgeable, and efficient wait staff. The food was outstanding. My wife had a wonderful Beet salad and I ordered the Calamari.... More

This is one of few places that opens at 10 on Sunday for brunch on St. Armands Circle. The menu is very creative. I love the regular eggs Benedict- but can be ordered with lump crab meat, pork or another option. The chicken and cheese waffle is delicious, too. My friends love the turkey and Brie on cranberry bread sandwich.... More

The Shore Diner came highly recommended by one person, and the complete opposite from another. Our experience was stellar! The presentation was brilliant and the taste was as well. We devoured our lunches and long to return for more.

This was our first dinner out at St Armand's Circle. We got right in at 6:30 pm on a Wednesday. Our server was new but she was sweet and met our requests kindly. I really enjoyed me Lobster Mac and Cheese side dish and the ribeye steak was excellent cooked medium as I requested. My husband had the grouper special... More
