You’re never too far from a raw bar in Charleston and for good reason: the ocean is super close and the fresh seafood here is always high-quality. But when you want to turn a casual meal of oysters and shrimp into an event, head to The Ordinary on King Street. This 1920s bank-turned-restaurant serves a wide range of seafood dishes, but the main reason to come here is for the shellfish towers, which you can get in one, two, or three layers. Order a drink and a tower, along with a few shared plates like the crispy oyster sliders and snapper ceviche.
