Seafood | Gillie's Seafood | Charleston


Welcome to Gillie's…

Where everyone is FAMILY!

This is the most personal concept for our chef, Sean Mendes…as this restaurant is an ode to his grandmother, LaReese Gilliard. Gillie's menu reflects recipes from her, since she is who he deems as the most important and influential person in his culinary journey. So pull up a seat at Granny's table and enjoy our delicious scratch-made comfort food that was made with a heaping measure of LOVE!
