South Carolina is a must-visit state for food lovers. The Palmetto State boasts a rich culinary diversity and an array of different flavors. These are just a few of the places foodies need to check out when traveling to South Carolina.


Barbecue is almost a religion in South Carolina. For the whole hog, Scott’s Bar-B-Que in Hemingway and Rodney Scott’s BBQ in Charleston are the places to go. If you are a fan of ribs, be sure to check out Henry’s Smokehouse in Greenville.


Buttery scratch-made biscuits are one of South Carolina’s icons. Lizard Thickets offers an incredible variety, from grilled biscuits served with jelly, to biscuits stuffed with egg and meat, or smothered with gravy.

Deviled Eggs

Deviled eggs can be a lot more diverse than you might think. At Bacon Bros. Public House in Greenville, you can find golden-yolk eggs, mixed with yellow mustard, homemade hot sauce, and a touch of apple cider vinegar.


There are literally dozens of oyster hotspots along the coast, but Hudson’s Seafood House on the Docks on Hilton Head Island is undoubtedly one of the best. The oysters are harvested within sight of the restaurant, and they cultivate their own single selects as well.
