Nine Exceptional Private Dining Options in Charleston


Most of the time, dinner at a table in a bustling, busy restaurant is what we love to do: We watch the dance of servers across the dining room floor as they deliver food and chat with guests while we idly watch, sipping wine and enjoying appetizers. However, other times call for a more intimate setting. If you’re looking to dine out but in a quieter room all of your own this season, Charleston has plenty of private dining options, from taco platters on Folly Beach at Taco Boy to crudo and cassoulet under Murano chandeliers at the Post House. While many of these rooms have reservation minimums, they offer maximum opportunity for a great evening with your party, and no sink full of dishes after it’s all over.

A friendly heads-up: Most spots on this list are available for full and/or partial buyouts; and do note that restaurants’ group policies vary — some opt for a set menu, other don’t; some are bookable via Resy, while others encourage you to reach out directly.
