A neighborhood favorite, Circa 1886 Restaurant is tucked away just off Wentworth and Smith Street in historic downtown Charleston, SC. Located on the grounds of the luxurious Wentworth Mansion, a beautifully landscaped lawn and garden welcome guests down a secluded path to the restaurant’s front door. Guests may enjoy a full menu and signature cocktails at our intimate bar or charming outdoor patio. Circa 1886 is within walking distance of many hotels in downtown Charleston. Parking is complimentary.


“We have had the good fortune of eating at some wonderful restaurants around the world, and it pleases me to say that Circa 1886 is among the best!!! It truly was a wonderful dining experience”.

“Recently dined at French Laundry in Napa. They have nothing on Circa 1886 in food or service. Enjoyed breakfast every morning and dinner once during our 3 night stay”.
