Champ and staff are like family. We've been visiting LPB for over 20 years. Glad to see the expansion in Charleston. Always available for catering family events. Thanks guys for being more than just another restaurant.

Great selection of southern comfort foods! BBQ ribs and fried chicken was great, as well as the green beans and sweet tea. They also have a selection of desserts.
