I had lunch here on my way out of Charleston and it was a great little find. The courtyards are beautiful and the dining rooms are cozy but spacious. Excellent staff and delicious food.

Made this our nightcap spot on a trip to Charleston and you should too! The She-Crab soup is the best we had anywhere in the city. The bartenders are delightful and the vibe is friendly and everyone is open to conversation.More

Very cozy restaurant with great Southern dishes. I had the crab cake and the Duck steak special of the day. Both were excellent.

This nestled away delight offered a unique "low country" experience. Simple menu, simple decor, friendly service, local flavor. It was not a bargain but worth every penny.More

I didn't notice if they specifically offer gluten free but I imagine a number of their dishes could fit the bill.
