Rediscover Seafood.

Everything at The Establishment begins with fresh, seasonal seafood from the waters around Charleston, South Carolina. Our relationships with local farmers and fishermen ensures that everything on your plate is always the best available. Our menu will always reflect our clean, non-complex, and balanced approach, delivering a selection of thoughtful and refined cuisine.

Our philosophy in the kitchen is simple: it's all about blending the flavors that exist already within our culinary components, enhancing and balancing our plates by executing proper cooking techniques and showcasing the freshness of the food we serve with impeccable focus.

Wine and Cocktails.

The Establishment's wine list offers unique and interesting varietals that complement the dishes we serve. Our sommeliers seek out wines that are ahead of the trends in order to pass along to the guest a unique experience at approachable price points. We focus on finding the right wine to create that moment of bliss when a glass and a dish complement one another in a way that is truly divine.

We also offer an ecclectic menu of classic and modern cocktails, rare and hard to find bourbons, and fine scotches.

Whole Fish with purple rice, pepitas and charred spring onions. We love this Savor Menu dish because the flavors perfectly compliment each other and it is substantial piece of fish for our guests who are looking for a larger portion size or it can be a great menu item for sharing. .

Night 9 ...dinner in Charleston, South Carolina.  We went for finethis dining seafood restaurant @establishmentchs. 
1) For the taste dish...we had Lobster Tail with corn emulsion, pea verte.  So good! 
2) Main dish.. Mahi Mahi -
white acre peas, butter beans, salsa verde, brown butter.  Tasty!  The fish, peas and and beans were cooked to perfection. 
3) Chicken- 
joyce farms, spring onion-english pea panzanella, jus.  Was favorful but the dish was a bit too big for fine dining experience.  We did not like it that much. We did not finish it but we saved it for lunch on the next day. 
Overall, we liked there seafood dishes which were their specialties.  We also like the way they chose their fresh ingredients from local vendors... way to be green! .
