Swamp Fox Restaurant

The Swamp Fox Restaurant and Bar, named for Revolutionary War hero, General Francis Marion, features classic Southern cuisine for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Executive Chef Simon Andrews and Chef de Cuisine Steve Klatt create regional specialties that emphasize farm to table practices using locally grown fruits and vegetables with respect to the traditional beloved flavors and techniques of the Old South.

Known for its award-winning Shrimp and Grits, The Swamp Fox Restaurant and Bar overlooks historic Marion Square Park and is popular with both locals and visitors to Charleston. Guests can enjoy live jazz piano Friday and Saturday nights while sipping cocktails in the casually elegant surroundings.

The restaurant also has a private dining room, the Parkview, which seats thirty and overlooks King Street and Marion Square Park. This intimate space is perfect for private events and small parties.

“Know your Farmer Know Your Food” is a USDA initiative to help more people understand where their food comes from and how they can support local food economies in their communities.

In preparing the Farmers Market Dinner, one of The Swamp Fox Restaurant’s specialties, Chef Steve Klatt expertly combines farm fresh sustainable ingredients showcasing Charleston’s locally supplied produce and meats. This menu changes monthly and is based on product availability from our wonderful farmers. See this month’s menu
