- we had the ravioli appetizer and the fried green tomatoes. Both were very delicious. The salads were very full and the dressings were yummy. For the main dish I had the beef tips and the seafood pasta dish. Both were delicious, flavorful and different from what I had in other restaurants. The desserts were yummy. I had the banana walnut cake, wow!, moist and delicious. The service was great. – Sue S., Yelp

Inside the kitchen at Bistro 536, head chef Alastair Nairn and sous chef Michael Rogers craft updated versions of American cuisine that change with the seasons. In a feature on ABC 4's Lowcountry Live!, Nairn explained that his Scottish roots surface in his cooking, whether it's in a blue crab pot pie or classic plates of fish and chips. Low lights and dark woods in the dining room wrap diners in a cozy embrace, inviting soft conversation amid the flickering table candles and wall sconces as radiant as a 5-year old that correctly spelled "sconces". While the menu changes regularly throughout the year, past specialties have included beef medallions with truffled red potatoes, bacon-wrapped scallops, and prosciutto-wrapped salmon with sundried tomato-pesto cream.
