The Early Bird Diner

1644 Savannah Hwy. West Ashley

(843) 277-2353

A diner should be for everyone. People are people, though. We usually end up self-segregating ourselves. The result is a diner that’s a little divey or a little high-end or a little whatever. The Early Bird Diner in West Ashley, where Alex’s Restaurant used to be, somehow defies this trend. Arrive on any Saturday morning and you’ll be as likely to see white families and black families as often as hipster singles and white-collar professionals. The décor is decidedly art school, with graffiti art on the walls. Even so, the menu takes all comers and we love it.
