Great Food, Great serviceSouthern Roots Smokehouse
The brisket was the bomb! it left Hal licking his lips. I enjoyed their tangy Carolina mustard BBQ sauce. Their Mac and Cheese was rich and creamy with that perfect crusty cheese topping. the collards were cooked perfectly and had that perfect vinegary tang setting it over the edge. the staff were dog-friendly, even giving Hal treats.
She Crab SoupGilligan's Seafood
If in this area of Charleston, heading south on 17 towards Savannah, stop at Gilligans for some she crab soup. It’s rich, creamy and full of crab. The staff are dog friendly. Small outdoor seating area. there are other Gilligans throughout the Charleston area. this one was close to our campground.
Mex 1 Was DelishMex 1 Coastal Cantina
after a long morning walking Charles Towne Landing, Hal & I had a beer Mex 1. Any dish with the word “banging” in front of it is what to order here. While the quesadillas are oversized and filling, the chips, quest and guac would have sufficed. Very dog friendly, and Hal approved.
Excellent Views Of The BridgeMount Pleasant Memorial Waterfront Park
Wanna take a great pic of your dog and the Arthur Ravenel, Jr bridge? then take a quick stop at this waterfront park. dogs are not allowed on the pier, but there are numerous “Kodak Moments” all over this park. Its free to park and free to walk.

Limited Areas Open To DogsLake Conestee Nature Preserve
Hal and I have been going to Lake Conestee Nature Park since it opened. as of June 18, 2020, dogs are no longer allowed on the dirt-based nature trails. they, along with bikes, can only be on the paved paths. While this significantly reduces where you can go in the park, it is still a decent place to take your dog. my rating of 3 bones out of 5 is because of throw new rule. there had been several reports recently of dogs being off leash, I am sure it led the management to this decision.
