    My friends and I had a wonderful evening at O-Ku! The food and service was excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant.

    The server was extremely welcoming and the ambiance was exactly what we had hoped for - cozy, upscale but not pretentious. The decor and lighting were perfect. We each had a pasta dish and they were on par with the best meals we had when we visited Italy. If I lived in the area we would certainly make this our go-to spot for date night. Price was very reasonable given the quality of the food. Tiramisu was delicious too. Can’t think of a single thing we would change. We are here for a few nights and already made a reservation for another meal.

    There were three of us. One person had the scallops. These were very small. Another had the bouillabaisse and found it to be excellent: Portion was plentiful. I has the chicken francaise. Huge portion served with Brussels sprouts. The Brussel sprouts were very good.

    Had a lobster roll, very good! The french fries were very crispy, done just right. And my wife had the fried shrimp basket. She said it tasted very good as well. This is our second time eating there, both times good, our server was very attentive, and knew the menu. We enjoyed the dinner, and we will certainly be back.

Discover Charleston

When you're in the historic port town of Charleston, you'll see an abundance of seafood. From the Low Country boils that include lobster and potatoes to shrimp and grits, there is a bit of everything for you to enjoy. Seafood restaurants are found on almost every corner and serve the freshest seafood possible as it's caught from the ocean on the same day in most cases. Another favorite dish that you'll find is fried chicken and waffles. Be sure to stop by one of the many souvenir stores in Charleston to get fresh fudge or a bag of saltwater taffy.
