Virgil’s was created to provide a space to enjoy great food, amazing service, and an abundance of love, while helping to preserve the Gullah Geechee Culture.
Virgil’s Gullah Kitchen & Bar, was named in honor of Virgil F. Smalls, who is the late father and father-in-law of the owners, Gregory & Juan Smalls. Virgil raised his family on James Island, which is just off the coast of Charleston, SC, which is rich in Gullah Geechee culture.
All of our dishes are inspired by Virgil’s own Family Recipes and are thoughtfully prepared with pride. We are most known for our delectable rice dishes, which was passed down from our ancestors who were brought from rice producing Sierra Leone and surrounding countries.
