What Folks are Saying
Among the many Google Reviews, Local Guide Roger C reported he found everything of the highest quality at Swig & Swine, from the food to the service:
After reading such great reviews my wife and I headed to the Mount Pleasant restaurant with hopes the reviews were accurate.
Upon arrival the parking lot was packed but it was packed because of the adjacent baseball fields. The restaurant was about half filled and it had a nice informal atmosphere with ample inside/outside seating.
Once we were seated our server Callie promptly took our drink order and explained in great detail some of the more popular menu items. Since it was our first time to Swig & Swine, we elected to split the Three Meat Plate with two sides.
For our three meats we selected the Prime Beef Brisket, Smoked Turkey, and Pulled Pork. Our two sides were Mac & Cheese and Corn Pudding. Our order arrived within minutes and Callie was quick to explain the ingredients of each of the five different BBQ sauces (squeeze bottles were on our table).
Well, our meal was absolutely delicious (top quality meats and perfectly made sides) and perfect for sharing and sampling the different meats between two people. Callie was outstanding, she was extremely friendly, helpful, and attentive.
We felt the BBQ was some of the best we’ve had in a long time, we highly recommend the Swig & Swine in Mount Pleasant, we will return!
Over on Yelp, Charleston-area local Jamie D shared that she and her husband dropped in because it was nearby, but kept returning because of the people and the food:
We first ate at Swig & Swine because it was close to our home but we keep going back because of the food and service!
My husband and I eat there about once a week. The staff is friendly and very attentive. We usually have Anson as our waitress and she’s awesome.
My favorite 2 dishes are the wings and ribs. The flavor is amazing on the wings and the price is good. Especially on wing Wednesday. The ribs have a good amount of meat and are moist. I like trying the different sauces too.
I definitely recommend eating here (or taking out).

What’s on the Menu?
Swig & Swine’s menu centers around its wood-cooked barbecued meats. You can order pulled pork, ribs, brisket, chicken, turkey, sausage, and more.
Their sides are just as good. Among the choices, you will find their amazing mac & cheese, Brunswick stew, pickled vegetables, corn pudding, and baked beans.
You’ll certainly want to try specialties like their pork rinds with pimento cheese or desserts like their famous Nutter Butter pie.
In a nod to our history, Swig & Swine also offers South Carolina barbecue hash, an original dish unique to our state.
Swig & Swine offers an array of sauces sure to please any palate. You’ll find mustard, vinegar, tomato, and Alabama White sauce.
The desserts are hard to save room for but worth making a bit of extra room in your belly. That said, you won’t find their desserts on the menu. For those, you have to check the chalkboard.
