Virginia's on King

A collection of family recipes and southern tradition, Virginia's on King specializes in upscale southern cuisine. As natives to Charleston, Red & Virginia were raised with Southern customs and traditions in their blood. Mrs. Bennett will tell you, as any True Southerner will agree, food and family are the threads that bind the traditions of the South.

Our inspiration for this restaurant came from Warren J. and Virginia Bennett, tried and true Southerners with a family tradition of creating an atmosphere of hospitable, southern comfort, good company and fine dishes.
