Welcome to pure Charleston. Our heart pine floors, wide-bladed ceiling fans and walls of hand-made brick have been the signatures of Lowcountry high-life since antebellum times. Even our name is derived from plantation jargon for livin’ large. You can almost hear the echoes of local planters doing deals over glasses of brown whiskey. Our menu is hearty and southern, featuring regional favorites, steaks, game and fresh seafood – all prepared with the famous Maverick artistry. We’re also known for our award-winning wine selection and irresistible desserts. And don’t miss the High Cotton bar, one of the area’s most popular watering holes.

Frommer's Review

Established in 1999, this blockbuster of a restaurant caters to an increasingly devoted clientele of locals who prefer its two-fisted drinks in an upscale macho decor, and a tasty cuisine that defines the restaurant as a Southern-style steakhouse. It's also a good choice for nightlife because of its busy and cozy bar. If you decide to stick around for dinner, expect more than steaks. Dig into the buttermilk-fried oysters with arugula in a green goddess dressing, or the shaved beef tenderloin carpaccio. Gourmets gravitate to the "Something Wild" section of the menu, featuring barbecue-spiced and seared flounder, or sliced medallions of venison au poivre. Most diners go for one of the juicy, tender steaks, which are served with sauces ranging from bourbon to béarnaise. The chef's dessert specialties are soufflés; the signature treat is a Charleston praline soufflé in chocolate sauce.
