The Middleton Place Restaurant

Seasonal, Local Low Country Fare

Inspired by the recipes and spirit of former resident chef and renowned southern chef Edna Lewis, The Middleton Place Restaurant offers traditional Low Country favorites made from fresh, local and seasonal ingredients. Low Country lunch options include fried chicken, she-crab soup, shrimp and grits, and collard greens. A more formal dinner menu includes fresh-caught local seafood, organic chicken, select cuts of meat, and seasonal vegetables. The on-site farm and gardens provides a substantial amount of the produce served. In addition to delicious food and drink, guests have a beautiful view of the Mill Pond and Azalea Hillside.

All proceeds from the Middleton Place Restaurant support the mission of the Middleton Place Foundation.
