1970 Maybank Hwy. (James Island)
Lunch & Dinner
Innovative, healthy cuisine. Seafood, pasta, chicken, and vegetarian specials. Voted Best James Island and Best Restaurant for Vegetarians by CP readers.
In the early 1990s, the Mustard Seed was a small bistro in a Mt. Pleasant shopping plaza with a vegetarian-friendly menu and cute wine list. Now the Mt. Pleasant location is situated in a handsome stand-alone building with a casual wine bar atmosphere. Two Mustard Seed locations with similar decor and ambiance have sprouted up on James Island and in Summerville. They’re all part of the Dine With Sal group, and they’ve all earned loyal clienteles by offering fresh ingredients, homemade soups and desserts, and more than a few exotic twists on Lowcountry and Southern fare. Each location offers healthy vegan and vegetarian dishes, too. —T. Ballard Lesemann, Dish (Winter 2013)

JI40 says... Hands down one of the best places to eat in Charleston. All the dishes are unique and seem to use some of the freshest and tastiest ingredients. I've only ordered off the regular menu a couple times because the specials board always has some AMAZING choices! Last time I had the Catfish over grits which was covered in some kind of...Almond butter sauce or something incredible, it might have been one of the top 5 meals I have ever eaten. This place will always be a must go to when I want a nice dinner or family/friends come into town. ★★★★★
