From James Beard Award winning chef, Jason Stanhope, and the team at Method Co., Lowland is a Southern tavern serving timeless classics and luxurious comfort food. Spanning two floors of the historic Lequeux-Williams home on George Street in the heart of downtown Charleston, the restaurant is a hidden gem tucked away just steps from King Street’s famed shopping district.

Guests enter the tavern’s main floor by walking down the cobblestoned Ellis Alley, named for Bob Ellis Shoes, the store that occupied the nearby King Street corner for decades. The first-floor parlor features a wood-burning fireplace, original pine floors, and a copper bar. Here, both the atmosphere and menu are approachable and convivial, offering housemade biscuits, Chef’s signature Tavern Burger, and other playful takes on nostalgic dishes.
Upstairs, located in the former head house residence, the dining room hosts guests for a tasting-menu-only experience that reflects Chef Stanhope’s exploration of high-end ingredients, flavors, preparations, and, of course, wine pairings, which will also be chef-driven. Showcasing a Spanish-moss inspired mural, hand painted by Dean Barger, and carefully curated local antiques and artwork, the space pulls inspiration from Lowcountry past and present to reflect an authentic Charleston dining experience. Opening in November 2023, the first floor will welcome walk-ins and reservations, followed by the second-floor Dining Room, which is set to open in December.
