There is certainly no shortage of good places to eat on Daniel Island. Whether you’re looking for a wood-fired pizza, fresh sushi or a juicy burger, there are plenty of diverse options. Not to be overlooked is one of the island’s long-time favorite dining destinations, Queen Anne’s Revenge, which has recently undergone some exciting changes, both in decor and its culinary offerings.
“We felt the bar had grown tired after a successful ten-year run with the same décor and furniture,” says David Howard, Owner and President of the Neighborhood Dining Group, which owns and operates Queen Anne’s Revenge. “A few years ago, we added a landscaped deck with more of a contemporary design, and we wanted there to be more continuity in design between the deck and bar.”
While the bar got a complete makeover, the menu was also refined. The Neighborhood Dining Group also owns and manages downtown Charleston’s McCrady’s and Husk (which was recently named the Best New Restaurant in America by Bon Appetit magazine). In these establishments, James Beard award-winning Chef Sean Brock has carefully masterminded menus that emphasize local, southern ingredients.
“At Queen Anne’s Revenge, Sean plays an advisory role in seasonal menu changes, menu development and tastings,” says Howard. “Executive Chef Brent Quiggle has been with Queen Anne’s Revenge since day one. Like many chefs he has been inspired by Sean’s passion and vision and has tapped into many of his relationships to acquire premium local and regional ingredients.”
Queen Anne’s remains committed to buying the best ingredients and the freshest seafood possible. They have listened and responded to their customers requests, offering local favorites such as Baked Oysters Rockefeller, Slow Roasted Prime Rib of Beef and Pecan Peach Chicken with Creamed Corn and Vidalia Onion Potato Puree.
