Best time to visit
Lowcountry Bistro serves a mix of cuisines with an emphasis on Southern and Cajun Food. The restaurant focuses on locally grown food which is promoted as the “farm to table” concept. It is located in a quaint former house in Charleston’s Historic District. There are a number of fried appetizers and also seafood appetizers. Entrees include pork, steak and seafood dishes. Sandwiches, salads and cornbread are also on the menu. All food is prepared in-house. Lowcountry opened in 2012 and is a sister restaurant of 82 Queen, which is more upscale.
Lowcountry has a small footprint and two floors. The main dining room and a small bar are on the first floor. Upstairs is a more open second dining room, which can be rented out for private events. Outdoor seating is available on a porch upstairs. The restaurant’s style is a mix of unfinished and refined. There are exposed wood beams and air ducts, but also nice artwork and marble countertops. Seating on wooden benches or stiff side chairs was somewhat uncomfortable. The restaurant was clean, including the bathroom.
It was quiet here on a Sunday evening around 8:00pm. The server was very pleasant and knew the menu well. Other staff members were helpful as well. Options were limited if you mainly go vegetarian. An appetizer of fried okra with remoulade sauce was a bit tough to chew, but the sauce was tasty and added a distinctive kick like Russian sauce on steroids. A vegetarian entrée called Pairing of Portabellas was an interesting selection of ingredients and visually impressive but a modest portion. It was like two dishes on one plate with different ingredients on either side. Roasted goat cheese, portabella mushrooms, sweet potatoes and spinach ingredients all worked well together and were notably flavorful. Some tobacco sauce had been requested but was unnecessary as there was plenty of flavor on the plate. A vanilla pecan cheesecake dessert also was a small portion, but if you like cheesecake, you’ll swoon when you take a mouthful. It was enhanced with caramel sauce and whipped cream. Eating here was pleasant. Portions are a bit small and prices somewhat high, but delicious flavors lingered long after the meal.
