The
Legend
Continues

Originally opened in 1955, 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.

We invite you to come in a stranger, visit with us,
drink and eat, and leave a friend.

Tues – Sun 11:00 AM – 2:00 AM
Closed Mondays
