Pier 41 Seafood and Raw Bar is the newest Mount Pleasant eatery from local Chef and Restaurateur Brannon Florie. The casually intimate 40 seat dining room foregoes the formalities of its downtown counterparts to offer the highest quality local and regional seafood at a reasonable price. The menu features a fresh take on classic seafood dishes, incorporating influences from the American South and Far East. In addition to regular menu items, Pier 41 offers a raw bar menu with a small, carefully chosen selection of oysters and other seafood delights.
Details such as wooden and subway tiled walls, reclaimed local woodwork, and large chalkboards highlighting raw bar offerings and daily specials, marry Florie's Lowcountry roots with the feel of a New England raw bar. The full service, 16 seat bar offers a carefully curated selection of local craft beers, signature cocktails, and wines. Newcomers may be drawn in by $1 champagne and $1 oysters at happy hour, but it is Pier 41’s commitment to true southern hospitality that will keep guests coming back again and again.

In all of his endeavors, Florie aims to honor the relationships he has built with local farmers, fisherman, brewers, and distillers. Even his plumber and electrician are personal friends and Mount Pleasant locals. His desire to give back to the community is exemplified by his involvement with local charities such as East Cooper Meals on Wheels, East Cooper Land Trust, and Lowcountry Land Trust. He is a member of Charleston Brown Water Society and the founder of Charleston's first free Food and Beverage Employment site. Outside of work he spends his time enjoying the company of his wife and two daughters, with whom he resides in Mount Pleasant.
