Water View and Waterfront Venues in Charelston

Water is one of the most appealing aspects of Charleston’s landscape. The downtown peninsula boasts harbor views, and the surrounding area offers a mixture of marshlands, creeks, ponds, waterways and beaches. With all that water to choose from, it’s no wonder that venues with a view are popular among Charleston brides.

Waterfront Venues with Benefits

We recently had the pleasure of catering a wedding reception at Alhambra Hall. It’s a great location with a beautiful waterfront ceremony lawn. Tables and chairs are included, and the venue allows for all-day set up (as early as 10am). The facilities have been recently renovated, and there is a kitchen on property. There is also plenty of parking available.

Every venue is unique, and our favorites (listed above) boast a variety of special features. Please feel free to contact us for a caterer’s perspective on a venue of your choosing.


Relish Distinctive Catering has exclusive relationships with three beautiful venues, but we are a preferred caterer for properties throughout the Lowcountry. When you choose Relish to cater your event; white linens, glassware, flatware and china are all included. Complimentary day-of coordination (including event set up and breakdown) is also available. Schedule a complimentary consultation to learn more about catering and coordination services.
