About this place
A Southern restaurant influenced by French, Italian and Spanish cuisine, The Obstinate Daughter houses a wood fired oven, plancha, and island kitchen range. Pastas, pizzas, and fresh seafood make up the bulk of the menu at this near-seaside restaurant with an entirely wooden interior. Enjoy Frogmore chowder alongside ricotta gnocchi with short rib ragu in the cozy, nautical space — at brunch, lunch, or dinner. Pro-tip: Ask about the historical reference behind the restaurant's name.

My personal favorite restaurant in Charleston, located on Sullivan’s Island. Great seafood, pasta, and pizza. Excellent gelato in first floor of building. Close walk to beach. Reservations often needed or can sit at bar

One island over, make your way to OD for a great dining experience. From the wood-fired pizzas to the custom cocktails, there are no bad choices here.

An eclectic fusion of Italian American cuisine. Perfect for an evening after visiting Sullivan's Island.

“It's a haul from the farm, but it's one of my favorite restaurants in Charleston. Seafood meets Italian fine dining. Pair it with a visit to the beach at Isle of Palms so you can feel like you got your gas money's worth.”

“Located inside theLinks clubhouse, Huey’s offer a casual atmospherewhere southern staples and Lowcountry comfort farearealwaysfeatured. Overlooking the Links Course, a full bar serves cocktails, wine and beer. Save room for one of our crafted milkshakes made fresh for the kiddies, or specialty spiked flavors for mom or dad. Ask your server about the local legend of Huey - the infamous Isle of Palms resident goose. Open daily for breakfast, lunch and lounge. Walk-ins welcome, large parties reservations preferred”
