Top Spots to Enjoy Sunsets in Charleston
Terrific views paired with equally terrific cuisine
With its waterfront location, Charleston has sunsets that are tough to beat. So here are three local restaurants where the views are as impressive as the cuisine.
Occupying a historic 1940s naval building on the east side of the city peninsula right on the water, Fleet Landing specializes in classic Southern seafood plates, including she crab soup topped with roe, lump crab cakes, and peel n’ eat shrimp.
Located on the Isle of Palms, this beloved spot offers unbeatable views of the water, in addition to a diverse menu (from fried pickles to seared salmon) to cater to all appetites. The weekday hour is an especially smart way to enjoy the sunset with well-priced drinks and bites.
Helmed by chef Michael Fitzhugh, this spacious, bustling eatery matches views of the harbor with an expansive menu that includes fresh seafood (hence the name) and beloved low country classics like fried green tomatoes, shrimp and grits, and she crab bisque.
