547 Freshfields Dr, Kiawah Island, SC 29455

The Digs:

The inside is relatively small, especially if they aren’t seating people in the big room, but there is a large bar in the middle where you can also sit. Outside they have several tables on the patio which is lovely for a nice day. One single bathroom makes it interesting if things get busy. There is a second bathroom in the big room but they seem to keep that closed off for reservations.

FortyEight Wine Bar-The Grub

The Grub: 

We started off with a cheese and charcuterie board to share. We let our server select the items. It was absolutely fantastic. There was a mustard cheese we all fought over but the star of the show was the goat cheese paired with bacon jam. We loved it so much that we all bought a jar of bacon jam before we left!  

I had the beet salad for lunch. All of the fruit in it was very good and the dressing was quite yummy. They did a great job pairing these flavors together to make this salad a win. 

I also had a couple of pieces of my husband’s Margherita pizza. The crust was delicious, the tomatoes were large and the balsamic drizzle was YUM! 

All in all, the board won 1st place today. I’ll get a board here every time I return.


The Service:

Service wasn’t top-notch, but it didn’t have to be because they have a self-pour wine station!  Whenever we wanted more wine, we went to the self-pour wine station and picked it out!  It was a lot of fun and gave us a chance to try some new wines.


The Scratch (Per Person):  



The Duds:

Casual! Grab a chair, relax and just have fun.


Take Note: 

This is located in a large shopping area. You’ll have to park and walk to the middle to access it.
