Most of the patrons of Art’s Bar & Grill go there for happy hour beers or late-night Jäger shooters, but a few wise eaters stop in at lunch because they know the secret. The lineup of fried seafood, burgers, and sandwiches looks run-of-the-mill at first glance, but everything is either made from scratch or brought in from the best local purveyors, like barbecue from John G. and Irv at Charleston Bay Gourmet Catering, bread from Ashley Bakery, and pickles from the Charleston Pickle Co. When the season is open, the golden-brown fried shrimp are caught fresh by the legendary Wayne Magwood, and when it’s not, you can’t order fried shrimp. But that’s okay, because you can always get a half-pound, cooked-to-order burger on a poppy seed bun or the delightful French dip. You might even call them works of Art. —Robert Moss Dish (Summer 2013)
