Following a great night at the Charleston Grill the Peninsula Grill is up to the task. We started with a special appetizer - crispy (fried) oysters - which my wife announced as the best she had ever tasted, and I agreed. She followed with She Crab soup, which she rated as very good but not her all-time favorite, and then... More

Amazing dinner. This place was recommended by a hotel staff member from where we were staying. Belmond Charleston Hotel, which is an amazing hotel, just saying. I was very impressed. Mist impressed with our waiter, wish I remembered his name. He made dinner even better. We sat in the bar area last table by the door. Make reservations so worth... More

Had breakfast and dinner here on several occasions. Breakfast is very nice, service wonderful. Dinner was an experience you should have at least once during your stay in Charleston. The four of us ordered different entrees and there was only praise for each. The service at dinner was like a well-choreographed dance- seriously. Several waiters working in tandem...one picking up... More

My friend and I had dinner a the Peninsula Grill a couple of weeks ago. Delicious food, as we expected. I had the scallops and my friend had the trigger fish and of course for dessert, we had the coconut cake, which we couldn't finish and had to take it back to our hotel for later. Service was great, no... More

Always a lovely and delicious dinner here...beautifully prepared and presented dishes...and the coconut cake never disappoints ! Ralph has often been our waiter--he is at the top in delivering elegant, polished yet friendly service--that we didn't experience in our most recent visit with a different server.

$12 a slice for coconut cake! Absolutely. Would do it over and over again! Plan to go to dinner next time we're in town. Last night was a quick dessert to go and we were not disappointed!

I've eaten in a string of well-regarded Charleston restaurants during a 4-day visit, and this is the first one which lives up to its reputation. I had the 3-lobster appetizer, then foie gras, then coconut cake, and all were quite good. With two glasses of wine and tip, I paid $115. Service was polished and friendly, and the decor quietly...

Peninsula Grill - My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner here last Sunday evening. Ambiance and service were first rate. My wife loved her appetizer of Lobster "3 Way" (Lobster Ravioli, Lobster Tempura and Sautéed Lobster); while I enjoyed it too, I believe it is at least $6 too expensive. We shared She Crab Soup and both of us... More

Old world, southern hospitality awaits at the Peninsula Grill. Nicely decorated dining room with portraits of famous past Charleston residents. Service was fabulous. Jonathan was attentive, charming and helpful. He was supported by a myriad of other attendants and servers. The She crab soup was delicious as was my triggerfish special. The Lobster trio and shallops my wife had were... More

It was a beautiful night so we sat outside and it was perfect for an intimate and romantic dinner. Our waiter was very attentive, experienced and very friendly but at the same time gave us our space. The food was cooked just right. I had the She Crab soup (delish) and the Pan Seared scallops. I highly recommend the restaurant... More

I can not think of a better way to enjoy an evening in Charleston than al Fresco dining in Peninsula Grill's courtyard. We have had an early spring and there have been a number of nights to enjoy the courtyard. Thank you for sharing your evening with us and the wonderful review.
