Born and raised in Charleston, Courtney Page has worked hard to create her own slice of heaven in the Lowcountry by way of Page’s Okra Grill – a scratch-kitchen hotspot in Mount Pleasant selling simple Southern food: “I love our town, and I’m happy to live in and serve such a great community. I enjoy getting to know the people that dine with us each day.”
Feeding a whopping average of 1,500 people a day, one stop in for their shrimp ’n grits – which was featured in Southern Living magazine – or the fried green tomato sandwich and you’ll have no problem understanding why Page’s has won countless awards, including “Best Pancake in South Carolina” from The Food Network Channel.
“I am constantly humbled when we are recognized in such a fierce culinary market,” she said.
While serving delicious food is always a pleasure for Page, it’s the staff that truly motivates her each day: “I currently employ 157 great people that I want to provide a safe work environment for to help them have financial stability and daily self-improvement. Most of all, I want them to feel proud that they work at Page’s.”
When she’s not at the restaurant, you can find her with her husband, Shane; 2 boys, Dominick and Trevor; or chasing Leon, their 150-pound cane corso.
