Charleston Edition: Fernbank Public House

By Candace Nelson - 9:53 PM

Fernbank Public House has been one of the most anticipated new restaurant openings in Charleston that I can remember. This modern tavern with a nod to neighborhood nostalgia partnered with a well-known local restauranteur quietly opened to uproarious reviews. The small restaurant is situated on Bridge Road right beside Lola's. Parking can prove challenging with all of the great eating establishments here. But, once you're able to snag a spot, step inside Fernbank for some thing a little different. Clad with local art, loud chatter and a busy bar, I first ordered a drink. I picked a sweet and fizzy Elderberry Spritz cocktail that was the perfect way to begin my meal. There are a variety of stronger, less fruity drinks if that's your vibe. The menu features a variety of traditional pub fare that turns the creativity up a notch. House fries, mozzarella pearls, chicken tenders, hummus, shishito peppers, and, of course, burgers. I ordered 🍔 The Goat - Signature blend burger with housemade bacon jam & goat cheese served with lettuce, tomato, red onion and mayo on Charleston Bread Brioche with a side of fries. This burger was really tasty with the funk of the goat cheese pairing perfectly with the sweet and salty bacon jam. It's one of those burgers that's a bit tough to eat stacked, so it can be tough to get all the flavors and one bite. But when you do, it's glorious. The fries were also nicely crisp because they were double fried. That's the only way to eat a fry. Grade: A
