Pawpaw Named Among Best Restaurants In Charleston Historic District
PawPaw is proud to have been named one of the best restaurants in the Charleston Historic District by Open Table! Located on East Bay Street, PawPaw is the premier spot for locally sourced, distinctly Southern plates.
Why Dine With Us?
PawPaw offers unique yet classic culinary options in a quaint, relaxed atmosphere within walking distance of most of the Historic District’s main attractions. Here are just a few of the reasons we’ve been named among the best restaurants in the Charleston Historic District:
A Focus On Local Ingredients
We are committed to using locally sourced ingredients in all our menu items, from appetizers to desserts to cocktails. We have a seasonal, rotating menu to offer the best the Lowcountry has to offer, no matter the time of year. We prefer to patronize local fishermen, farmers, brewers and bakers. You’ll certainly notice the difference when you try our dishes!
We’re well known for our expansive drink selection, which includes artisanal cocktails, local craft beer, tap wine and much, much more. While we do have a focus on local brews and vineyards, we also boast a full lineup of domestic and imported wines alongside a wide selection of bourbons, whiskeys, vodkas and cordials.
Exceptional Southern Cuisine
You’ll find innovative takes on many Southern classics featured in our menus. At Pawpaw, we love to take Southern staples and add a contemporary twist to make our plates truly memorable. From our delicious Buttermilk Biscuits and Pan Seared Shrimp & Grits to some of the best fried chicken in Charleston, our menu has much to offer. And don’t miss our famous Wood Grill Specialties!
The Perfect Ambience
Located in the heart of the Charleston Historic District, we are steps away from the city’s most cherished attractions and sights. Our restaurant offers a warm Charleston welcome, featuring a mix of traditional and contemporary style. We’re also proud to offer private dining rooms for more intimate gatherings!
