The Glass Onion- Charleston, SC

As we were heading to Charleston, I only had two places on my food list, the Glass Onion and Martha Lou’s Kitchen.  We heard about the Glass Onion on Road Trip with G. Garvin on the Travel Channel.  Then I found out they had been on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.  And then I read an […]

Sweatman’s Barbecue – Eutawville, SC

On the way back home from Charleston to Atlanta, I knew that I’d have one chance for roadside barbecue.  Four or five years ago, a friend of mine from Charlotte sent me a list of great barbecue places in the Carolinas.  Only four of those were in South Carolina and Sweatman’s Barbecue (in his words […]

Fish – Charleston, SC

With the package that we booked at the Francis Marion Hotel, they gave us gift certificates that could be used at a number of restaurants around the hotel.  For our last night in the city, we decided to use several of those and chose Fish.  It is a locally sourced, eclectic French-Thai fusion restaurant.  When […]

FIG – Charleston, SC

When I found we were heading to Charleston for business, I looked at all of my food resources and identified the places that I wanted to dine: Rockaway Athletic Club (in Columbia, on the way up Hominy Grill Husk (where I was wait-listed for a reservation on three different days) and FIG. You have to […]

Rockaway Athletic Club – Columbia, SC

I had learned about Rockaway Athletic Club from Hamburger America, and reviewed George’s article before we left home.   One of things that I remembered was the difficulty he had in finding the place.   I followed the map to the address from the Burger GPS app, but all we saw where the GPS directed […]

Northgate Soda Shop, Greenville, SC

When Spring Break rolled around this year, the girls both had different weeks off from college.  One week we went with Colleen to Savannah to look for an apartment. The next week, we went with Madison to Ashevile, NC for a couple of days.  When I looked at the path up there, the Hamburger America […]
