I think it was from Cop Out

Old Tusk:

Charleston is a great food town. Husk and F.I.G. are two high in restaurants, but get your reservations now. Magnolia and 82 Queen ( She Crab soup) are also excellent resturants. For seafood, Red's at Shim Creek and The Landing  (shrimp and grits).

Old Tusk:

Favorite pub, The Griffin and Tattooed Mouse ( duck fat fries). Bad resturants don't last long in Chareston.

I LOVE Charleston.  I took my daughters one summer when it was a blistering 105 degrees.  They wanted to do the ghost tour.  I thought my boyfriend was exaggerating about how miserable he was.  In truth he had thrown an embolism. We did not find until we drove home to LR.  Yes, drove. 
He's still alive but it added 10 years to my life.

Food is TREMENDOUS! 

And, if you have time I would highly recommend vacationing in Kiawah Island with a side trip to Charleston.  Honestly, I can't wait to go back!
