Situated along Folly Road on the way to the beach, the Brick House Party Plantation is both right in the middle of everything and far removed. The main floor of the grand Southern house has been converted into a comfortable dining area, and there’s plenty of outdoor table options under Moss Dish (Summer 2013)-draped live oaks where local musicians regularly set up for some live music. With a Mediterranean twist on Lowcountry cuisine, the vegetarian-friendly menu is also rich with local seafood. Seared grouper, barbecue mahi, and crab cakes are good choices, and they come with plenty of fresh Southern veggies on the side. A cozy 10-seat bar behind the main house rounds out this charming addition to James Island’s culinary scene. —Stephanie Barna Dish (Summer 2013)
