Like neighborhood taverns of old, Tavern & Table on Shem Creek is designed to be that local gathering place where friends and family get together for classic cocktails and spectacular handcrafted food in an atmosphere as comfortable as your living room. The inventive menu, created by Executive Chef Katie Lorenzen, celebrates the flavors of the Lowcountry using as many local vendors, fishermen and farmers as possible. Tavern & Table is rustic but refined offering familiar flavors presented with a little flair and a lot of fun.

Serving Lunch, Happy Hour, Dinner & Cocktails


At Tavern & Table we are blessed to have a beautiful indoor bar as well as a scenic waterfront bar on historic Shem Creek. Both bars serve classic cocktails and our housemade barrel-aged cocktails, alongside expertly selected wines, seasonal craft beers and standards by the bottle. In addition to the two main bars, we also have a dockside area perfect for cocktails and snacks from the kitchen. We feature Happy Hour weekdays from 4-7pm with select specials that change throughout the year. There are few vantage points in Charleston with a better sunset than the one we enjoy daily! Enjoy a cheese and meat board, small plates or perhaps a flatbread pizza if you’re popping in for a drink and a bite, or starting your meal off in style.


Private Dining

For fabulous parties, lasting memories and none of the stress, the T&T Room is the perfect place for your next private party. Ensconced in the heart of the restaurant but separated by opaque wire-glass panels, the T&T Room can accommodate from 20 to nearly 40 people comfortably.

Fantastic for corporate dinner programs, business lunches with AV needs, pharmaceutical events, rehearsal dinners, birthday parties, anniversary celebrations and more. Tavern & Table’s professional kitchen & staff will deliver an unforgettable experience for you and your guests.


Tavern & Table is the dream child of Cecil & Dianne Crowley and Andy Palmer. After years of working together on various successful restaurant concepts, they wanted to bring together the very best aspects of fine dining and casual hospitality in a beautiful and comfortable setting. Tavern & Table is more than a restaurant, it was created to be a gathering place where people sit in comfort and share small plates for the table or enjoy a hearty meal. The bartenders know the fine art of cocktail making and their interest in flavor and presentation comes alive in not only in the food but in barrel aged cocktails that are created in-house.

Tavern & Table is designed to celebrate the food and beauty of Charleston and the Lowcountry. The colors throughout compliment the setting on Shem Creek. From the beauty of the T&T special occasion room to the easy breezy comfort Dockside, there is always a place for you at our table.

Tavern & Table’s menu comes to life in the hands of Executive Chef Katie Lorenzen. A graduate of Le Cordon Bleu Scottsdale, Chef Katie worked her way up through the ranks to become Executive Sous Chef to Beau MacMillan at Elements Restaurant in the Sanctuary in Scottsdale, Arizona.  In 2011 she took the Executive Chef Position at BB’s in Aspen, CO and was working there when we lured her to the Lowcountry. Through her stellar career she has battled Bobby Flay on Iron Chef America and won, prepared more than one James Beard dinner and participated in Aspen’s famous Food and Wine Festival. Her global take on American standards are now the staples of T&T’s varied menu that ranges from snacks and small plates to whole fish and duck meatloaf.  From soup and nuts to pastry chef, Lorenzen knows her food and flavor and brings it to Tavern & Table with excitement and innovation.

Since joining Tavern & Table, the accolades continue for Chef Katie. She’s been named Charleston Top Chef in a competition judged by Food Network’s Katie Lee. Her BBQ Brisket won Best Mac & Cheese Southern Style in the Annual Mac Off, and Tavern & Table continues to top the Best Of lists due to her fabulous flavors. Her food has also been featured in articles in Food + Wine, Men’s Journal and Eatthis.com.


With a diverse menu, lunch and dinner service and our waterfront location, a Tavern & Table Gift Card is a perfect gift for birthdays, special occasions or the holidays. Currently available at Tavern & Table or by phone only at this time.
