it’s all the best of Southern food done well. In the sandwich department, the specialty is po’ boys, including the quite interesting fried pig ear variety. For a thrilling adventure, go for the buttermilk fried quail: you won’t be disappointed, unless you really, really don’t like gamey birds. In addition, Tuesday nights are fried chicken nights, and are definitely worth it for The Glass Onion’s exceptional brined chicken. And the drinks are not to be ignored, as the restaurant features a wine list of sustainable, organic, or biodynamic choices.

Chefs Chris Stewart and Sarah O’Kelley have succeeded in their intent to make The Glass Onion a “soulful” addition to Charlesotn’s comfort food scene. It’s never been totally clear to me why it’s called The Glass Onion, but hey, an Onion by any other name would taste as good. -- Arthur Newbould

I've always had great experiences at the Glass Onion. One of my favorite things is their Fried Quail with collard greens and cheese grits. #GoodEats!

Instead of the typical frying method, The Glass Onion's chicken is baked in a pan of hot oil. The confit technique leaves the chicken leg thoroughly cooked before being seared on both sides.

Shells & Cheese + Catfish! Yum!!! Way too much, but can there ever be too much deliciousness?! Must do!

Another Diners, Drive-ins and Dives restaurant off my list. Awesome food. I ate all of mine plus whatever the wife didn't finish. Salted Caramel pie and banana pudding is awesome!
The menu features local, seasonal specials but the standards like Deviled Eggs, Gumbo and the decadent Fries with BĂ©arnaise are always great choices. [Eater 18 Member]
