Glass Onion

1219 Savannah Hwy.
Charleston , SC , United States
(843) 225-1717

Despite its location next to a defunct auto-body shop and dinerlike vibe, the Glass Onion is one of Charleston’s best places to see classically trained chefs update Southern dishes. Chefs and co-owners Chris Stewart and Sarah O’Kelley’s buttermilk-fry South Carolina quail, stuff an omelet with pimento cheese and make an exemplary version of the local field pea stew known as Hoppin’ John. Locals pack the place on Tuesday nights, the only time the Glass Onion offers its incredible fried chicken (reservations are required).
