Mathews is from the people behind White Star, and while this American spot serves similarly excellent fried chicken, it’s more of a place to go for a full meal than drinks and bar snacks. The bright, white-walled space, which feels like it could be attached to a bed and breakfast in Charleston, is a good option for a group brunch or casual dinner with parents.
