Exquisitely prepared meals, a great wine list (with a knowledgeable Sommelier) and, perhaps best of all, the finest service, hands down, of any restaurant within 150 miles. Peninsula Grill in Charleston is its only equal, and that's a 2-hour drive away. Reserve this for once a month so you don't wear it out!

We came to this resort for one week - and it's the most relaxing experience we've had in years. We didn't want to leave the property. We worked out in their facilities - eat breakfast lunch and dinner in their different hotels - and had unforgettable treatments in their spa. The staff was super friendly. Special kudos to Kyle at...

From beginning to end, a wonderful evening. First we were having dinner with good friends. The 12 mile drive to the Inn was breathtaking. The remains of the Planation house amazing and there was a wedding going on when we arrived. The Inn is situated on the water with a screen and an unscreened porch to watch the sun go... More

Family had dinner on the porch. What's up with the service? I had to go inside to find someone to wait on us. The first gentleman who arrived seemed disorganized. He gave us one wine menu for 8 people. Food is fine-they need to get their act together on the service side.

If you are looking for a great conference facility it is one of the better ones. They offer cottages instead of hotel rooms so rent a cart or bike or just walk among the beautiful grounds. Good spa, golfing, fishing....

When tables are set without salt and pepper one assumes the chef does not want guests adding condiments he thinks are unnecessary. Perhaps. We stared with the shrimp and grits. Excellent. Properly seasoned. The entrees were stripped bass and the pork. Both were almost encrusted in salt. We couldn't eat either them. And the dog wasn't too happy with the... More

I have been at the River house restaurant many times and it is always near perfection: excellent service, refined dining experience. Food and wines are fabulous... Michel Leclerc visiting from Quebec...

Service was slow and sometime uncoordinated on the porch, Order the fried chicken and avoid the beignets which are too much.

The roasted onion soup with crawfish and crab was absolutely divine. I ordered the appetizer shrimp and grits for my entree and while the portion was small, the dish was so rich and flavorful that the portion was perfect. Our entire party was equally pleased with their food. And you can't beat the scenery and ambiance.
