CQ’s restaurant in Harbour Town has captured the historic Lowcountry charm in its scene and cuisine since 1973. There is a Cracker Barrel-esque ambience, minus the breakfast and the prices. Historic decor, pictures and memorabilia of the era adorn the walls while the wood floors create a cozy atmosphere so guests can feel at home while they dine.
The restaurant is open early for a minimal breakfast, lunch and dinner, but the menu offers a much more diverse fine dining experience. The bistro offers light meals such as kobe beef sliders as well as other dishes to share like chili shrimp tacos, ahi tuna, and steamed mussels. The dinner menu offers American dishes with a French flare, as well as fresh seafood from the waters of South Carolina. There is even a Chef’s Table where, by special arrangement, you can craft your own signature dish with the help of the culinary staff. The dessert menu offers a variety of sweet delicacies including creme bruleé and daily renditions of bread pudding from executive chef Jimmy Corbett. The wine selection is extensive to say the least, offering high quality tastes from around the world.
