Heaven on Earth: Brunch at the Darling Oyster Bar

A truly delightful downtown brunch scene without all the noise…

Insiders know Sundays are made for being lazy, for spending time with family and friends… Sundays in Charleston, for those in the know, can be heaven on earth, especially if you can spend the day with your head in the clouds… If you know anything about the peninsula at all….

then you probably already know about the Darling Oyster Bar.  And if you are searching for ridiculously good food, friendly service & all the hubbub and buzz of a Lowcountry brunch scene without all the usual noise, insiders know you can end your search on the corner of King and Morris….

Yup, that’s right, we are talking about the mighty fine brunch experience you’re sure to have at The Darling Oyster Bar.

Renovated into one of the coziest brunch spots on the peninsula, this historic storefront has acoustic coffered high ceilings and hidden sound panels…. This means that even with a full house and just the right amount of hubbub and excitement in the air, the Darling Oyster Bar has hands down, some of the best acoustics you’ll ever find in a fully seated restaurant.  In other words… you’ll not only be able to hear yourself think, but you’ll also be able to enjoy tabletop conversation with your guests without strained effort…but what about the food, you ask?  Well now…..that’s where heaven comes into play!

Insiders love love love the Darling’s  Lobster and King Crab Roll, served on a split toasted bun with a very light scallion mayo…Oh and although we don’t usually like anything fussy added to our Geechie Boy Grits (local stone ground goodness from Edisto)… the sweet pepper relish garnish on these grits is really to die for. Just delish, we promise!!

As is the Smoked Salmon Cake Benedict…

and the Tuna Poke bowl, which is chock full of Lowcountry goodness.  It’s made with world famous Carolina Rice, pickled shitaki mushrooms and toasted Nori… sooooo good!

You can also opt to sit at the raw bar….

but we have to warn you… if you order one of these bad boys…

 

 

Be prepared to have the people around you whip out their phones and start taking pics…

 

 

We loved the service too! The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and  they all have cool vibes in a good Charleston kind of way…

 

So what do you say? The weekend is upon us and it’s another opportunity to relax, nosh on the best &  keep your head in the clouds… for one more day, anyway. See you ’round…
