Rediscover Seafood.

Everything at The Establishment begins with the best fresh, seasonal seafood from in and 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.

Sunday Brunch from 10:30am to 2:30pm

Sunday Brunch. Charleston Style.

To be done properly, Sunday brunch must incorporate a degree of sophistication and panache, the right companion(s), live jazz, and of course, a cocktail. While we leave your selection of guests to you, we can say with an air of confidence that brunch at The Establishment will provide you with an elegant room, excellent cuisine, a jazz pianist, and a cocktail list designed specifically for Sunday mornings.

Choose a friend or two and join us for a brunch experience you won't soon forget. Make your reservations now.
