Get a t-shirt while you're here because the Lost Dog Cafe is a notorious local hangout that you won't regret visiting. Great food and service. Great value for the experience.
This is the only Krispy Kreme you can find in the area and it shows-there are always lots of people crowding in to get warm delicious doughnuts. There are lots of coupons available and you get a free one just for coming in.
Scottie's always had a happy staff and was the best place for a luncheon or ice cream! Unfortunately it doesn't exist anymore. Not sure what it was replaced with?
Mama Fu's has a great location by the mall and other great restaurants in West Ashley. You'll get a large portion of delicious pasta in unique dishes that you'll definitely want to bring home for leftovers.
This bar and restaurant is a great local hang out in Summerville on Trolley Road. Everything is moderately priced and you'll be sure to find someone to talk to. I recommend going on a weeknight.
A fun local hang out that stands alone by many new cookie-cutter country club neighborhoods, Kings Grant Golf Course sits right on the Ashley River. Support the neighborhood amenities because they may soon be in danger of development.
I highly recommend eating at Brecks. Don't be fooled by its outward appearance- order a steak because they are fantastic and the prices are low! A great place to bring family or friends.
You'll probably regret stopping here for Chinese food. The sesame chicken is my favorite dish but here it was kind of dry and hard. Maybe if you go on a day the food is fresh??
You may have to wait a little while for a table but it will be worth it. I recommend any of the salads and their honey-butter croissants. They also sell home-brewed beer.
After my deep tissue massage at The Spa at Charleston, the chronic pain in my back didn't return for months. Their specialists are very talented. I highly recommend a massage here.
