Big John’s Tavern is Charleston’s oldest tavern in one of America’s oldest towns. This rustic bar is full of history and has seen more than its fair share of lore that has grown over the years. If walls could talk there would be no shortage of stories. Some fact and some fiction, and some aged like a fine bourbon that gets better with time. Ask us about Big John Cannady, who played for the New York Giants from 1947-1954, before opening Big John's Tavern in 1955, in his hometown of Charleston, SC.

This place is great. Live music, red leather bar stools, friendly bartenders. What else could you ask for?
Great bar with incredible selections. Don't sleep on the food. Everything was fantastic, but I specifically loved the steak tartare.
