In a bold fusion of sports and dining, Crush Yard in Mount Pleasant is redefining the culinary landscape. It’s not just a restaurant; it’s a pickleball haven. With eight state-of-the-art indoor courts, Crush Yard is more than just a meal stop. It’s a sporty retreat for enthusiasts of the game, a sport that’s been on a meteoric rise recently.
Opened on Sept. 28 at 3365 S. Morgans Point Road, the 38,773-square-foot establishment, formerly the Palmetto State Armory, is now a buzzing hotspot. Andy Ladden, the Chief Marketing Officer, emphasizes that while pickleball is integral, the restaurant is the star. The menu? A delightful mix of Southern pub cuisine with a twist. Think pimento cheese fritters, mini corn dog skewers, and katsu-style fried chicken sandwiches.
The pickleball program, led by teaching pro Dan Levine, offers leagues, tournaments, and clinics. And here’s the kicker: You don’t need a membership to enjoy the facilities or the food, but members do get special perks like discounted court fees and free equipment rental.
Open seven days a week, Crush Yard is a testament to modern, multifaceted entertainment. It’s not just a place to eat; it’s an experience, blending the love for a fast-growing sport with the joy of good food and company. For more information, visit crushyard.com.
