The Resy Guide to Dining in Cannonborough and Elliotborough

By

Cannonborough   Elliotborough  

Though not as storied or as documented as other spots in the peninsula, Cannonborough-Elliotborough has always been a thriving area in the city. Located about mid-peninsula in Charleston, these twin areas essentially work as one big neighborhood, approximately bordered by the Crosstown (Septima Clark Parkway), King Street, Bee Street, and Rutledge Avenue.

Over the years, the neighborhood has retained its quirky charm, with its diverse people and businesses, even as the city has changed around it. Even though Charleston’s real estate market has skyrocketed, it’s still a home for artists, families, and young people. And though Upper King Street might seem a part of this area, we think that it has a culture all of its own, so take a step or two off that iconic street with us —  and deeper into a part of town rich with dining options.
