Foursquare Tips

  • From #TLSponChat: @TJtheGreyt: Dining at Circa 1886 is always amazing.
  • Circa 1886 has extended restaurant week until the end of January. The food was absolutely delicious, you must try everything if you can!
  • The Carolina gold rice is the best rice in Charleston, which is why its on our list of The Tastes That Make the City: Charleston.
  • After visiting Middleton Place, Penelope went to Circa 1886 for Plantation Rice Rolls. A nod to Charleston's past, made from rice flour & served with whipped olive oil. A delicious starter.
  • Our menu changes with the season, but antelope is a permanent fixture. This summer Chef Marc Collins dreamed up an Antelope Schnitzel preparation. So delicious.
  • Try the Apple Barbeque Braised Pork Ton Toro
  • Best food in town hands down.
  • What a meal! Go with the win pairing. It's worth it, up until their specialty port. Too raisin-y for my taste. Menu changes, but if they happen to have the beef, plain as it seems, go with it!
  • Definitely a good restaurant. Go with a larger party and you can get the room to yourselves! Desserts! You have to save room for one... Maybe two. That. Good.
  • Everything was absolutely amazing! Service, food, atmosphere. ..everything. I wish we had a place like this near my home in NYC.
  • Try the Carolina Gold Rice and Popcorn Cake; it's delicious.
  • Lamb was awesome. So was the antelope and the rabbit.
  • Ideal for a romantic meal for two. The menu tends toward gamier options like antelope loin with chick pea barigoule, olive oil cured olives and feta, a nod to the region's hunting traditions.
  • The service, the food and cocktails!
  • Wow. The food is amazing. Fantastic manhattans, too!
  • Expensive but the food was amazing--sweetbreads and halibut were winners. Try the Night Blossom cocktail straight up with the 'dirty ice' on the side to add as you wish.
  • If you haven't been you really should go! It's amazing. The antelope is fantastic as well as any of the seafood.
  • Very good, but not great. Entree lacked flavor, but salad and dessert were delicious. Our server Peter was excellent.
  • Try the Buttermilk Praline Panna Cotta
  • Try the Cinnamon Rubbed Antelope Loin
