CHSReview

There are a lot of good spots to celebrate an anniversary or birthday in Charleston, but very few of them are as popular with locals as Slightly North of Broad. This French Quarter spot serves Lowcountry classics like steamed clams and shrimp and grits, and for the past 20 years has been slammed basically every night of the week. Definitely make a reservation if you can or put your name down and grab a drink at The Gin Joint next door while you wait.
