The Buccaneer Restaurant in Historic Downtown Charleston

 

Closed October 2010

 

Lois and I dined at the Buccaneer Restaurant this past week to check out the pirate artifacts for our second grade grandson who is a pirate fanatic and will be visiting next week.  The Buccaneer boasts of having the largest collection of authentic pirate artifacts in the USA.  They didn’t let us down.  If you like pirates you have got to check out the Buccaneer Restaurant in historic Charleston and her sister Restaurant Queen Anne’s Revenge on Daniel Island.

        Buccaneer Resturant in Historic Downtown Charleston           Buccaneer Restaurant Pirate Flags

 My two favorite artifacts were a small cannon also know as a swivel gun and the gibbet.  The swivel gun is a small mobile cannon that can be moved to wherever it is needed on a pirate’s ship, slipped into a pre-mounted bracket and fired.  The gibbet is a metal crafted full body cage that port cities sometimes place executed pirates in and placed them at the mouth of port as a deterrent to other pirates.  Sometimes they tarred and feathered the executed bodies as well. 

           Pirate's Swivel Gun / Samll Cannon at the Buccaneer Restaurant                      Pirate's Gibbet at the Buccaneer Restaurant in Historic Charleston 

As good as the Buccaneer’s Pirate Museum is the food was even better.  We took advantage of the early bird menu (4-6 PM).  I had the fish and chips and Lois had the grilled chicken breast.  The food was outstanding and the service was just as good.  The Buccaneer Restaurant is an ideal place to take the whole family for excellent food at very reasonable prices and the Buccaneer’s location off of Cumberland Street between East Bay Street and Concord Street is central to all the activities in historic downtown Charleston.
