They offer Charleston standards like shrimp and grits ($16.50) and crab cakes ($23.50), along with more exciting choices including sesame crusted tuna medallions ($15) and grilled barbecue tuna with a mustard barbecue sauce and fried oysters ($25).

Overall, SNOB lived up to it's reputation as one of Charleston's best restaurants. I frequently get asked variations of the question, "I've got a friend/family member coming into town this weekend; where is the one place that they really need to try?" Usually I alternate between FIG and McCrady's, but Slightly North of Broad will now definitely be a part of the conversation.
