About Us

Built soon after the Municipal Marina opened, The Marina Variety Store Restaurant and the Altine Family have been serving Charleston's favorite local dishes since 1963.

We offer breakfast, lunch and dinner to locals and visitors alike with views of the Charleston City Marina that are unmatched. Try one of The Variety Store's famous benedicts for breakfast, a juicy 8 oz. burger for lunch, or a heaping seafood platter for dinner.

Don't forget Mike Altine, Jr.'s legendary crab dip to kick things off. The Variety Store also offers first class catering for weddings and corporate events throughout the Low Country.
