The Ordinary restaurant in Charleston is a simple yet stylish restaurant set in an old bank building that was transformed into a bustling brasserie. The seafood eatery pays tribute to the jewels of the east coast and offers coastal Carolina cuisine. Chef Mike Lata prepares extraordinary seafood dishes like beef tartare with crispy oysters, grouper schnitzel, and swordfish steak frites.


Their fresh oyster, Maine lobster and caviar selection are also outstanding. Lobster roll and soft shell crab sandwich are great for quick bites. Go for the seafood tower if you want to sample various types of raw and cooked seafood.


The Ordinary Restaurant is open from Mondays through Saturdays from 3 -11 pm.
