About The Ordinary

Is The Ordinary dog friendly?

Yes! The Ordinary is dog friendly, and it makes our curated list of the best pet friendly places in Charleston, SC. There is a large outdoor patio off to the side of the restaurant which is well-protected from street traffic and noise. The night we dined was fairly chilly, and most people were sitting inside, but the staff was amazing and went well out of their way to get us set up outside with heaters at a cozy table.

Food Situation:

Food at The Ordinary was some of the best we had in Charleston. Creative and fresh, we were impressed by every dish we had. We travel the world. We eat a lot of oysters. These were very, very good. Also, on the oyster front, don’t miss the decadent oyster slider. The winter salad is worth getting excited about a salad, and the fresh fish choices were all hits for us. The servers know their food here, so be sure to get recommendations and also ask about portion size for each of the items in their “kitchen” section.

Drink Situation:

The Ordinary has a full bar with a nice list of classic and specialty cocktails and a small but solid craft beer list. What stood out for us here is The Ordinary’s wine list. We are big fans of the small wine producers who focus on sustainability and minimal intervention in the making of their wines. This list was full of them. It is well-curated, and the staff was very knowledgeable. It gets a two-paws up PLUS a helicopter tail rating from the Jet Set Pets team.

Location and Other Tips:

Located in a great stretch of the popular King Street, The Ordinary is in a perfect location to walk and window shop before dinner. It is within walking distance of many of our favorite pet friendly hotels in Charleston and is less than a 10-minute walk from Marion Square if you and your pup need a little post-dinner exercise.
