Gourmet Bay Catering Services

Johns Island, 29455
Reviews:
Gourmet Bay and chef Austin (and Casey and Kate) made our event the best it could possibly be. The food, pricing, and service were top notch. For reference sake, we had a large group (17 guys) staying at a house in Kiawah and Gourmet Bay came out and fed us apps, dinner, and dessert with hands on service and amazing kitchen manners! Our guests were overwhelmed with the quality of the food and the ease of use of the dinner. When we are in the Charleston area again we will definitely use Gourmet Bay.

The pizza was great. Just got a pepperoni but it was great! Great little place in Johns Island! I would go back!
This place rocks and is easily some of the best pizza in Charlestonalthough it is on Johns Island and not necessarily close to downtown Charleston however it is just over the bridge and very convenient to James Island. Extra large slices good quality ingredients and pretty quick pick up service. Really good Stromboli's too.
Best pizza on johns Is. The people are very laid back and always nice meatball pizza my fav

Dodge’s Chicken

Reviews:
Say what you well about gas station food, but this place rocks! They serve up some of the best fried chicken around, minus my mother's of course. They have wings, smoked turkey legs, corn dogs and some of the best breakfast biscuits around. Stop there. You will not be disappointed!
Dodge's is the place to go for fried chicken and Jojo's! (Fried potato wedges) The prices for the food are very reasonable. Of course, this is also a great spot to grab gas and any other convenience items. For a quick (unhealthy meal), Dodge's is the place to go!
The first, time I, drove up to Dodge Chicken, I said "yea, right". How can an old Gas Station serve anything that might be even close to good chicken. Well, everyone told me that this is the best chicken around. So, I'll try anything once. Believe me when I tell you, it is a must if you love chicken. You must get there when the chicken just comes out, wow, the taste is to die for. I have been there many times, and have taken friends there, who also said 'what', but they too were convinced. This place is always busy. Next door is a KFC...I've never seen them busy. What does that tell you? Frank G

Crave International Foods & Catering

4430 Betsy Kerrison Pkwy,Ste B
Johns Island, 29455
Reviews:
I have had the pleasure of eating here twice. Both times have been outstanding! If you are heading here for breakfast, then I would definitely recommend the huevos rancheros. The shrimp and grits are also wonderful. Crave is the best kept secret in the greater Charleston area. Better than any place I've eaten at downtown.
Tried Crave for brunch the last day at Kiawah - were heading out of town and it's located just outside of Kiawah. To be fair, this I'm reviewing breakfast only, as we didn't get anything off the lunch menu and they've just starting offering dinner a few days a week. Driving up it doesn't look like much, but don't let that fool you. It's a small place, maybe 12 tables inside and 4 or 5 outside, and they run a full service catering business as well, so sometimes they'll close a bit early in order to get to the catering end of things. We went on a Saturday morning around 10:30, so the place was starting to get a little busy but wasn't full. There was only one server working so things were a bit slow, but once the food started coming out it was no problem - seemed like everyone got there pretty much at once which is tough on someone working solo (as well as on the small kitchen they've got here). Coffee was good, although they were serving heavy cream vs. 1/2 and 1/2, but I'm not terribly picky and had some milk for my daughter so we were good. Crave has some unique dishes and mostly cool spins on home cooking/comfort food. We ordered the crave benedict - potato cakes with poached eggs, hollandaise, and spinach - really tasty and a welcome change from the typical offering. My wife's food, however, was great - and simple. Chicken and biscuits - two large pieces of boneless fried chicken with fantastic breading sitting on two biscuits and covered in sausage gravy - heart stopping heaven. If you're looking for someplace on John's Island for breakfast, or if you're staying on Kiawah and want to grab a big breakfast before lounging on the beach all day, check out this place.
Mike is a culinary genius. My husband and I have been going to his restaurant since it opened. We have never had less than an exceptional experience. Mike's food is always extraordinary! The service is always amazing. The tomato pie and mac and cheese are my favorites. We recently had Mike cater our wedding and as usual everything blew us away. Our guests raved about the food all night (still are too). We have since moved to NY but I sincerely wish Mike could open a restaurant here too!

Reviews:
YOU MUST GO HERE. We stayed in Charleston for two nights, and ate here both nights. 'nuff said.
Pros: Food is amazing. This place literally has the best iced coffee I've EVER had in my life. They have cute items for sale around the restaurant. Very cozy. If you have to wait, there isn't a bar...BUT they will let you take a drink outside to stay cool. The staff is really on their toes and works hard to serve you quickly. Cons: Not a lot of parking. This place is VERY busy and rather small--you might have to wait for a while and there is nowhere to sit inside to wait so you're waiting outside.
I love this place! The fried chicken is amazing and the mac & cheese definitely had it's own unique taste...different, but delicious. So far I've had the blue plate fried chicken special, the Caprese sandwich, and the fried green tomato sandwich. It's very small though, so go before or after peak dining times. I will definitely keep this in my rotating dining-out menu! Don't go when you are in a rush though, even though the place was empty, me and my guest waited an awfully long time for our food.

Southern Brews Coffee

Reviews:
Great coffee and great breakfast sandwiches.
We have fallen in love with this little gem. We are new to exploring the Johns Island area, and were so excited to hear of a tasty, local coffee shop (thanks to our friend!). While yes, there can be a longer than usual wait for a coffee (as noted by some other reviewers), on numerous occasions we have been the only car in line. I really love the iced caramel macchiato (I ask for almond milk and only half the amount of syrup because I do not like things too sweet). I also really love their breakfast sandwiches (the everything bagel is wonderful). Another wonderful thing is how they serve a chocolate covered espresso bean with their hot beverages...how cute (and tasty) is that?! Service is ALWAYS super friendly. Check it out if you're in the area and looking to try something new and tasty!
Love the rotating specials not only is the coffee good but this movies are yummy as well. The owner is so friendly and I love the little touch is like chocolate covered espresso beans and dog treats. 1 of my favorite newer businesses on johns island.

I don't typically think of going to a soup place during the summer, but I stopped by on the way to work one afternoon anyways. Winter or Summer, rain or shine, Ladles has what you need. I ordered the melon basil soup, which was a crisp and refreshing chilled soup, in addition to the caprese sandwich. Both were light and refreshing, which is exactly what I was looking forward to on a hot summer day. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, even when it looked like they were in the weeds. Keeping it real, Ladles.
Creative soups and sandwiches. Friendly staff. The cold soups are delightful on a warm summer day. Cucumber dill, gazpacho, etc.
Watermelon gazpacho was excellent. Sandwiches are good and service was great. Nice place to enjoy lunch out of the heat.

Ji Pizza

Reviews:
VERY GOOD ! Family just moved into town, this will be on my list every time. I wasn't sure about the place but when we went to pick up, there were another 4 or 5 that came in behind us to pick up, comforting to see locals. Some reviews I read talked about staff being rude or short, the reason although it should not be that way is that they were slammed busy ( Sunday night) I did call with a question before ordering with no issue.
Best pizza in charleston! Always delicious, quick and courteous. Pizza is huge, don't make the mistake we did first time ordering and get a large for 4 people, it could feed 8 easily. They have great specialty pizza but the plain is just as good!
This may be the best pizza I've ever had. The islander with love rocks. Seriously don't think ill ever order pizza anywhere else again.

down home; damn good!
Best BBQ near Charleston. It's a little bit of a drive but it's totally worth it. Odd hours so call before you head over there. I try to make a point of stopping there as often as my diet will allow.
Great food and friendly people.
