It doesn’t matter how many times we get acknowledged for the dining experience people have at Fat Hen, we are always flattered to be included among the best of the best in Charleston!

We have always admired Eater Charleston‘s dedication to the local food scene. A few times a year, they create a list of 38 Essential Charleston Restaurants. They define the restaurants that make the list as “the places that you think of when you think of Charleston”. Fat Hen found a place on the list last quarter and we are excited to be featured on the list again this go-round!

Summer is always a busy and exciting time for us here at Fat Hen! Recently, we were mentioned in an article from Traveler of Charleston Magazine as one of the 20 places to dine in Charleston right now. As the article mentions, this is such a hard thing to narrow down, so we are honored to have made the list! Check out the article to see their dinner recommendations!
