One of the most popular culinary events is popping up again, and area restaurants are sure to be buzzing with activity.   It’s Charleston Restaurant Week, and it’s running from Wednesday, September 3rd through Sunday, September 14th.

Sponsored by the Charleston Restaurant Association, it’s become a wildly popular event that takes place twice a year, and it’s proven to be a big hit with locals and visitors alike.

This year, more than 140 restaurants are taking part.

If you are here in a beach house Charleston, whether it’s one of our Isle of Palms luxury rentals or Folly Beach rentals Charleston, chances are you are going to go out to eat. You’ve gotta feed the folks in your Charleston beach house, and you might as well let someone else do it.  Restaurant Week is a great way to sample some of the best the town has to offer, at prices better than ordering a la carte.

This event just gets bigger and better each time it rolls around.   Charleston restaurants showing up on all sorts of prominent best-in-the-country lists doesn’t hurt, as local chefs are getting the rep of rock stars.   Charleston’s culinary scene is one of the main draws for folks coming to our rental homes South Carolina, be it Isle of Palms vacation rentals or Folly Beach house rentals Charleston SC.

Lowcountry food is hot, and Charleston Restaurant Week is, too.

They’ve tweaked it a bit this year.   Instead of having three tiers of pricing ($20, $30 or $40 per person for three courses), restaurants are encouraged to come up with their own specially priced event menus.   It looks to be a benefit to diners, adding more flexibility as restaurants respond to what people enjoy or have asked for in the past. Some restaurants are opting for a special drink as opposed to a third-course dessert or first-course appetizer, for example.

Here is a link to the Charleston Restaurant Association’s helpful webpage on the event.   Each participating restaurant is listed along with a link to their special menu for Restaurant Week:

The webpage also links you to book a table, where possible. It’s highly recommended to make a reservation as these slots fill up FAST.

Also, they have an official free smartphone app available. Just go to the app store and search for Charleston Restaurant Association. It even includes a tip calculator and a parking assistant.
