South Carolina - Charleston - Bay Street Biergarten / by Dave Hileman

We picked this place a bit at random from the reviews we were reading on places like Yelp. Turned out to be a pretty good choice. We did not want a super expensive seafood meal, there are those in abundance in Charleston, so this restaurant, only a short walk from the dock for Fort Sumter, fit the bill perfectly. And it was close to our desert goal, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream.

Choices here were interesting. The usual for this type of place, burgers, large sandwiches and lots of smoked meats. Plus interesting sides, German Potato salad, tater tots and a great pretzel with a very spicy mustard, “lusty monk mustard.” Also very good salads. Reasonable prices and decent food made this a popular spot.
