In six locations around the Charleston area, King Street Grille rolls out upscale pub fare and a few dozen flat-screen televisions. Full of contemporary versions of traditional bar favorites, the menu unfolds to reveal mac ‘n’ cheese egg rolls, nine types of grilled, hand-formed burgers, and plates weighed down with comforting entrees, such as pork chops and Chicken Madeira. The bar stocks more than 100 beers and its own line of liquor to wash down meals or offer as gifts to the thirsty actors who reenact big games inside the TV. Throughout the week, the eatery pairs good food with good times by transforming its space into a venue for trivia nights, billiards, and live music.

At Rehab Bar & Grill, guests kick back at 25 tables and more than 100 bar-side seats to peruse a menu stacked with rib-eye steaks, six styles of buffalo wings, and hot dogs topped with chili, cheese, or onions. The kitchen prepares snacks until midnight on weekends, fueling conversations and pool games until the wee hours of the morning. Club-style lights illuminate an oversized dance floor where patrons dance to DJ-curated soundtracks three nights a week. DJ Donnie Dramatic blends hip-hop beats with Top 40 melodies during his Tuesday-night sets, and DJ Sean Cronin swathes Saturday nights in house music and drum-and-bass grooves. There are six 24-inch LCD televisions hovering over the 30-foot bar, helping sports fans applaud football tackles, basketball dunks, and the graceful pirouettes of monster trucks.

Chef Daniel Justice and his staff at Roadside Kitchens elevate classic comfort dishes with local ingredients and a downhome atmosphere. Menu starters include a batch of roadside deviled eggs—two smoked salmon, two smoked bacon, and two traditional ($7)—and the baby-spinach salad, which trails a wagon full of peaches, strawberries, aged blue cheese, grilled red onions, and candied pecans topped with bacon vinaigrette in its leafy wake ($9). The Roadside house-smoked pork chop communes with creamy mac 'n' cheese, collard greens, and a caramelized-apple demi-glace ($18 for 12 oz.; $25 for 22 oz.), and the 12-ounce certified Angus rib eye mingles with mashed potatoes, grilled local asparagus, and a truffle demi-glace ($30). For dessert, red velvet cupcakes whisper bedtime stories to the topmost tiers of a three-layer caramel chocolate cake ($7 each).
