Tucked behind the historic Wentworth Mansion, Circa 1886 is the epitome of classic Charleston charm. Located inside the original carriage house of the estate, this Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant is more than just a place with great food and a stunning wine list; it's a destination for the foodie, historian and architect hidden within all of us.

Walking under the trellis as you make your way up the brick path, you can't help but admire the beauty of this 19th-century property. Built in 1886, hence the name, the restaurant retains much of its original character, including the wood-burning kitchen fireplace, stable doors and heart of pine floors.
