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.



Located in Beautiful Downtown Charleston.

Located in the historic James Gregorie House at 28 Broad Street, The Establishment is a seafood-centric restaurant focusing on the fresh and sustainable ingredients surrounding the area. Comfortable fine dining at its best, the spacious and elegant eatery houses two large and comfortable dining areas, a full bar and wine cellar, a private dining room, and an open kitchen with a chef’s table.

Last night we had reservations at the Establishment which once again did not disappoint! The food was fabulous, the drinks amazing and Johnny waiter was very attentive without being overbearing. The menu changes daily but gives you such a variety that you are sure to find something you would like. We sampled the Caesar Salad, the Duck, the Gnocchi with Crab and the Short Ribs with Truffle Polenta it was all very tasty! The Establishment has several events coming up like Leap Year specials and some other specials in March so be on the lookout you will not want to miss them!

📍 Charleston, SC

First night at Charleston was a definite success. I wanted to highlight my two favorites from @establishmentchs! The short rib and panna cotta were unforgettable! Short rib was very flavorful and tender, it melts in your mouth. The panna cotta was the best I have ever had! Creamy vanilla with a hint of lemon, this dessert was incredible. The ambiance was intimate and the customer service was excellent.  A pleasant dining experience and a must try in Charleston! Swipe left ⬅️
