Jack Brantley was inducted into the Columbia Restaurant Hall of Fame in November. Brantley was also presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Greater Columbia Restaurant Association (GCRA). Brantley began Aberdeen Catery in 1985 with just a small party with some friends. Since then, Brantley has catered for two South Carolina gubernatorial inaugurations, President and Mrs. Clinton during their stay in Hilton Head at a Renaissance Retreat and the Augusta National Club House during the Wednesday opening of the Masters for the past 10 years. One of Brantley’s unique concepts is that all his food is served on antique china.

As Brantley jokes that men generally ask about the Aberdeen marinated grilled tenderloin or the beef sauteed Carolina quail medallions. Women on the other hand ask “Are you bringing your collection of antique china?”

The successful restaurateur has also served the state as the chairman for the March of Dimes, the American Cancer Society and as president of the South Carolina Jaycees.

The GCRA gave Kaylee Crane, a student at the University of South Carolina’s school of Hotel, Restaurant and Tourism Management, an academic scholarship in honor of Brantley.
