The former location of Queen Anne's Revenge, 160 Fairchild St., is now home to The Islander. Holy City Hospitality has expanded its list of fine restaurants in the Lowcountry to Daniel Island. The Islander offers creative cocktails, fresh local seafood with a taste of sushi served in an atmosphere that locals and visitors will find inviting. The grand opening will be Monday, May 5 for dinner service beginning at 5 p.m.

“We knew this was an area looking for more dining options,” says General Manager Eric Foor. “People here on the island love dining outside with fresh food. We wanted to give them that. And we've had tremendous response from the community thus far. People have been stopping by to see what's going on.”

Holy City Hospitality's other ventures include 39 Rue de Jean, Virginia's on King, Coast Bar and Grill, Vincent Chicco's, Victor Social Club, Michael's on the Alley and Good Food Catering. John Whisenant, executive chef at The Islander has worked in the kitchen of other HCH restaurants, including helping open 39 Rue de Jean as their sushi chef – as well as The Daniel Island Club, yet he claims he's “most excited” about his vision for The Islander.

“This will be my kind of cuisine,” Whisenant explains. The Islander will provide something for everyone, including the picky eaters under 12. Whisenant has steered clear of the typical hot dogs and chicken fingers kids menu in lieu of kid-friendly sushi, salads and other healthy options. Adults too will be pleased with an array of fresh local recipes.

Escape to The Islander for an “island vibe,” complete with an outdoor/indoor bar, extended patio space and complete transformation to a bright, light and airy atmosphere. The Islander will be serving dinner nightly at 5 p.m., offering a live steel drum band and other entertainment on Friday and Saturday evenings. Lunch and brunch hours will be added to service in the coming months. Private event, meeting and banquet space is available. “Daniel Island is a growing area,” exclaims Foor. “And we want to be part of the community.”
