Best place to eat in Moncks Corner

Dog and Duck

It all started way back in 2001 when Rod Bradley was tending bar at TBONZ in Mount Pleasant, and one of his favorite regulars, Jeff Brown, asked if he was interested in partnering with him to open a pub. Jeff had lots of experience with breakfast and lunch spots but no experience on the bar side, while Rod had bar experience and a degree in Hospitality Management. Now, they needed someone with extensive kitchen knowledge. Enter a bright 24-year-old Andy Reed. Andy had diverse experience from working in a variety of kitchens in the area.

 

The three worked together to develop a menu, design a space, and establish a culture of fun! “We wanted to create a pub where family and friends could gather and feel like they were a part of our family!”

 

The flagship Dog & Duck was opened in the Belle Hall Shopping Center on Long Point Road, and it was immediately welcomed by the community. Featuring great food, a fun atmosphere, and friendly service, it became the place to be for lunch, dinner, late-night snacks, and drinks with friends.

 

In 2004, the team decided to take the successful formula up to Summerville. In 2008, Rod and Jeff amicably parted ways, with Rod buying Jeff out of Belle Hall and Jeff taking over the Summerville location. Summerville, while not associated with the other Dog & Ducks, is still going strong and retains the name.

 

In 2008, Dog & Duck Park West opened in Mount Pleasant, where they became that area’s favorite neighborhood pub. The Clements Ferry Road location followed in 2019, and in 2023, the Moncks Corner location opened.

Best things to do in Moncks Corner

Cypress Gardens

Cypress Gardens SC, a 175-acre swamp garden, is located about 30 minutes from downtown Charleston in Moncks Corner. The gardens were originally a freshwater reserve for the nearby rice plantation, Dean Hall. Visitors can enjoy the Butterfly House and observe the different stages of a butterfly’s life cycle, or visit the Swamparium, where large tanks feature fish, amphibians and reptiles native to the South Carolina Lowcountry. Visitors can also rent a swamp boat to paddle along a marked trail, possibly spotting alligators, birds and turtles, or take a stroll along the 3.5 miles of walking trails that loop through the swamp and gardens. These amazing gardens were used in several movies, including scenes from The Notebook, Cold Mountain and The Patriot.

Old Santee Canal Park

Opened in 1989, the 195-acre park commemorates the building of the first true canal in America and showcases the area’s extensive history and habitat. Among its attractions are the Stony Landing House, built in 1843, and four miles of boardwalks that meander through the quiet backwaters of Biggin Creek and its surrounding swamp. The park’s centerpiece is its Interpretive Center that chronicles the area’s history as far back as 4000 B.C. Beyond its historical offerings, the park has become a popular destination for bird watchers, hikers, paddlers and other outdoor enthusiasts.
