X2 on Hymans! Being from Charleston, I have to agree with the Bus. Downtown is very congested. Enjoy a true gem of the South!!!

When you think of Charleston you usually don't think of BBQ, but if in town Nick & Jim's on King Street near the College Of Charleston campus is a must. When you walk in and smell the smoke you'll think you've died and gone to Heaven. I thought my G'ma died several years ago but I accused the manager of having her in the back making home made pies. I'm 55 and grew up on BBQ. My G'pa and his brother who are long since dead made BBQ hash that the family still sells in South Carolina grocery stores. But I swear, Nick and Jim's is possibly the best I've ever had.

But y'all are right, for pure seafood, Hyman's is tough to beat and good to eat!

"Hymans", good food, nice place. Had a huge 'laugh'. We waited outside for about an hour for a table. When we were seated and having drinks, the owner came by and he stopped at each and every table and talked to them, and us at our table. We were really not listening to other tables, so when he stopped at ours we seemed to have a nice conversation until he moved on. About 45 minutes later while we dug into the main course, the owner started his rounds around the room again and spoke to each table. We were all saying and thinking that this is really nice to greet his guests..... until he stopped at 'our' table. As with the first time he did almost all of the talking and what he said was Word for Exact word from what he said the first time that he was at our table..... He used the same rehearsed speech at every table every single time. Grade A for greeting his guests.... B- for using the same speech over and over. It was the big 'funny' for the day. Next time in Charleston. Hymans again.

We stayed at James Island last fall and recommend it also! You have to try the RoofTop Bar, it's a great place to hang out, food is very good and the view of Charleston is great!

I recall a place in Summersville (it's on the way in to Charleston) called "Sticky Fingers". They offered a sampler with seven different kinds of BBQ. Don't know if they're still in business though, it's been several years since I was there.

Well we went last week. And as all of you said, it was a great place to stay and relax. Met some new friends as well. It served as a great jumping off point for the restaurants and beach we wanted to hit. Only draw back was they were having some type of youth school event behind our space every day. Made it a little noisy in the evenings. But it will be on out "return to" list. Thanks y'all.
