There just aren't many places left in town like the Marina Variety Store. The humble mom-and-pop restaurant on the Ashley River serves traditional Southern fare such as grits, hashbrowns, and fried steak as well as standards like eggs, omelets, and waffles. Each dish is prepared in an open kitchen and served by a pleasant member of the wait staff. Expect to be called "honey" or "darling" a lot. The Marina Variety store is a classic spot for old salts nursing hangovers or families in need of some morning sustenance.
