“committed to customer satisfaction since 1890”
This historic block was the wholesale district in the 1800s. Eli and Aaron’s great-grandfather, W.M. Karesh, a Jewish immigrant from eastern Europe, started Southern Wholesale in this location in 1890. This became one of our first distributors of Union & Hanes underwear in the Southeast. Wolf Maier Karesh’s son-in-law, Herman Hyman, took over the business in 1924, changing the name to Hyman’s Wholesale Company. He then passed the business down to the third generation, to Wolf Maier Hyman, who continued on with the wholesale dry goods business until 1986. (He presently lives on the 3rd floor) At that time the Omni hotel was under construction and the City condemned the back 280 feet of these warehouses to make room for a parking garage. The floors are heart pine and the bricks are Old English, with the original Oyster mortar.
The wife and I had an exceptionally good meals here. After the appetizers (fried green tomatoes and hushpuppies, which were both excellent) I had a Cajun fish and shrimp and the wife had salad with calamari. We left very full and totally satisfied.
Great atmosphere and totally surprised by the number celebrities that have visited and left their pictures and comments about this great restaurant.
Unbelievably good food & service. Eli Hyman came to our table to make sure we were happy. We got a coupon for a free appetizer of fried green tomatoes over cheddar grits. Then they brought out hush puppies & boiled peanuts automatically. The wine, Cajun mahi-mahi & lump crab cakes were delicious! I couldn't eat it all.
Amazing. Great food!
Sort of tourist trap-y. There are better hidden gems in Charleston serving seafood!
