King Street Grille’s Downtown Charleston Location Closing its Doors After 13 Years
Lease non-renewal leaves King Street one less locally owned business
Charleston, SC – King Street Grille’s original location (and namesake) will be closing its doors after 13 years in business due to non-renewal of their lease on lower King Street. The locally owned restaurant’s last day in business will be next Sunday, August 28.
King Street Grille which serves casual food and spirits in a sports-oriented setting, has five other South Carolina locations including North Charleston, Mount Pleasant, Kiawah, Murrells Inlet and Myrtle Beach. Owners plan to assist King Street employees with finding jobs at other King Street Grille locations or at other restaurants in the Charleston area.
“We would like to thank all of our customers and employees for the support over the years. We started on King Street and King Street will always be in our name even if we don’t have a King Street restaurant,” says Scott Kier of King Street Grille. Owners say they will be actively searching other options to return to King Street under a situation where the lease agreement is mutually beneficial to all parties.
King Street Grille will be open for normal operating hours next week from 11am-11pm Monday-Thursday, 11am-12am Friday-Saturday and 11am-11pm on Sunday.
