Foodie Friday: Obstinate Daughter


Happy Friday, y’all! I don’t know about you, but I am SO happy that we finally made it to the weekend! It has been a long, busy week, and we are headed to Folly Beach for several nights with my in-laws and brother-in-law on Sunday. I am ready for a vacation!

As you may remember, Monday was our wedding anniversary, but we really celebrated last Saturday. For dinner, we decided to try a restaurant that we have heard so much about and driven past hundreds of time: Obstinate Daughter on Sullivan’s Island.

Wow. That’s all I can really say. Wow.

Seriously, how have we lived here for three years and never eaten there before? Honestly, I don’t know. But I do know that we WILL eat there again!

I’m not really sure what type of food you would describe Obstinate Daughter’s fare as… maybe Italian? The menu consists of a lot of small plates, pizzas, and pastas. Many of the dishes feature seafood and local ingredients. For our appetizer, we ordered the Anson Mills Farro Piccolo, a dish with Brussels sprouts, peanuts, balsamic, and black truffle.


I was a bit intimidated by some of the entrees, so I decided to order something basic: Cavatelli, a fennel and sausage ragu sauce served over freshly-made pasta. It was delicious, and the serving was huge! I definitely had leftovers!


Ryan ordered the Old Danger, a pizza topped with pancetta, mozzarella, white sauce, farm egg, scallion, black pepper, and parmesan. I never would’ve imagined that I would like this pizza, but I could’ve eaten the whole thing by myself. It was one of the best things I’ve ever eaten.


Everything about Obstinate Daughter was amazing—the food, atmosphere, and service.

When we finished our meal, we headed downstairs to BeardCat’s Sweet Shop, the gelato shop below the restaurant. For dessert, we ordered a Butter Cake gelato in waffle cones, and it was worth every calorie!



I hope y’all have a great weekend, and be sure to check out Obstinate Daughter the next time you’re visiting Sullivan’s Island. You won’t regret it, I promise!
