Restaurant wasn’t too busy at 5:30 pm. Fried chicken was OK, mashed potatoes were not very warm and the hoppin john was dry. Would not make a return trip. Service was below par.

We decided to try Virginia's recently and have mixed feelings. The service was great and we found the shrimp and grits to be excellent. The mac and cheese was bland and other items were just ok. I would definitely go back for the shrimp and...More

The guide at the visitor's center suggested we try the southern food here and we weren't disappointed. Prices were reasonable and the food was very good! Service was friendly. Try the BBQ pickles, they are wonderful!

Probably the best breakfast we have had. Highly recommend the Benedict and ham and eggs. Great see. Wish we could have tried their dinner.

Be sure to make a reservation, IF they answer the phone. For us, they didn't answer so we're as welcome as cold fish. They let us sit at the bar, despite open tables. Food was good, but not a hospital Charleston reception.More
