Lowcountry Food

Chris Stewart, Charles Vincent, and Sarah O’Kelley

While the New Orleans background of owners Charles Vincent and Sarah O’Kelley shows in the po’boys and jambalayas sprinkled throughout the menu, the farm- (and net-) to-table commitment they share with partner Chris Stewart shines through every dish. One can feast on Lowcountry specialties accompanied by seasonal sides. There’s fried catfish and quail, triggerfish and grass-fed beef, with choices of slaw, braised turnips, pole beans, field peas, and butter beans. At Sunday brunch, score buttermilk biscuits with sausage gravy; at the annual offal dinner, fried liver mush. And with their fine pork belly, the Onion serves up grits and greens, a combo sure to please the palate of the most devoted Lowcountry food lover. 1219 Savannah Hwy., West Ashley, (843) 225-1717,
