If one thing rings true about the folks here in South Carolina, it’s that we love our restaurants. We have some of the best food in the country right here in the Palmetto State. In addition to that we also have some of the best views. To that end, from the mountains to the sea the Palmetto State has some restaurants with killer views.
We’ve rounded up some great places to soak up South Carolina as you enjoy some tasty regional cuisine. Take a look.
1. Belle's Bistro at Chattooga Belle Farm in Long Creek, SC.
