The American Automobile Association (AAA) recently awarded their AAA Four Diamond Award for 2017 to Langdon’s Restaurant & Wine Bar. This is the 13th consecutive year Langdon’s has been awarded the coveted rating.
"AAA's requirements for a Four Diamond rating are scrupulous, and those achieving this status are among the finest hotels and restaurants in the country," said David Parsons, president and CEO of AAA Carolinas. "Less than 4 percent of annual inspections conducted nationally result in a Four Diamond rating."
According to a press release, this is how the process works:
"Each year AAA reviews more than 31,000 restaurants. Only 2.1 percent make the AAA Four Diamond list. To be considered for approval and rating by AAA, hotels and restaurants that meet AAA members’ basic hotel and restaurant requirements must first apply for an evaluation. If the application is accepted, an AAA evaluator will visit the establishment. Evaluations by AAA inspectors are unannounced to ensure that AAA professionals experience a hotel or restaurant just as a guest would. They use published guidelines to conduct the inspection. After a thorough inspection, establishments that meet AAA’s criteria become AAA Approved — indicating their proven ability to provide a quality experience for members."
Langdon’s Restaurant & Wine Bar is located at 778 S Shelmore Blvd., Mt. Pleasant.
