The Grit Counter | Photos From The Excellent Event!

The Valerie & Co. Photographers crew gets invited to do event photography for all sorts of occasions including restaurant reviews! I’On Life Magazine was hosted by new Mt Pleasant restaurant, The Grit Counter, to dine and I’On Life’s Area Director, Karen Clements, wrote a review of the fresh fare. Read on to learn more about The Grit Counter and see a few photos from the excellent event!

The Charleston area culinary scene is very vibrant and Grit Counter is a savory standout. Karen said, “Everyone in attendance had a wonderful time socializing and sampling the delicious food, the favorite dish being their Shrimp and Grits. Some even said they are the best in Charleston, which is a great compliment considering MANY of the restaurants here in the Lowcountry serve Shrimp and Grits!”

As Grit Counter puts it, the restaurant is a, “quick-casual lunch counter that introduces a new lunch staple, ‘Grit Bowls’ featuring Signature Bowl creations, as well as ‘Build Your Own’ offerings with nine flavors of grits to choose from. For those that just don’t care of grits, more traditional Southern-influenced lunch fare is offered as well, including soups, salads and sandwiches. Then wash down lunch with some sweet peach tea, a glass bottled soda or even an adult beverage if you’ve got time!  Whether you’re on a short lunch break or looking to relax with friends, there’s a little bit of something for everyone here at The Grit Counter. There’s seating inside as well as outside on the dog-friendly patio and you’re invited to join Grit Counter for a fun Southern lunch!”

When asked what would you like others to know about your restaurant, Eli and Frank Kline, JD Coleman and their whole team at the Girt Counter wanted all to know that, “We’re a local family-owned and operated establishment proud of our home, our community and it’s food! A platinum partner in the local seafood initiative led by The South Carolina Aquarium, we work hard to support and bring you fresh local seafood along with delicious southern cuisine and grits with more flavor than you’ve ever tasted! In our love and pride for our home, the design of our restaurant is very personal to us as well, including a piece of the old Grace Bridge that once spanned the Cooper River greeting you at the host stand, a grand local oyster shell display which mimics the outline of Charleston’s well-known bridge skylines – both old and new, and local antique maps framed from washed up driftwood. We strive to offer a relaxed yet quality dining experience with warmth and southern hospitality from the moment you’re welcomed through our door!”
