Outdoor openings: These Charleston-area establishments are now serving guests on their outdoor patios 

Maintain your distance


Following Gov. Henry McMaster's Friday announcement that restaurants could reinstate outdoor dining on Mon. May 4, several Charleston-area establishments announced they would welcome customers to their patios. We always love the chance to support local restaurants, so we've put together a list of places that are open for outdoor distanced dining.

These restaurants are opening under the assumption that guests will listen to their guidelines, so we've included links to or descriptions of their specific requests where applicable.
