My wife and I visited this restaurant on Christmas Eve. Our server did not show until we had to ask the receptionist to find our server. We had waited without any attention for about 15 minutes. The restaurant was not that busy and other tables seemed to be getting proper attention so we may have just been unlucky on who... More

We were staying at the Francis Marion and decided to go to Virginia's on King for breakfast - it was just down the block from our hotel. They put such a spin on their shrimp and grits -- the shrimp and grits are layered with fried green tomatoes! It was an excellent dish! Have not had other meals there but... More

Sitting just a block from Marion Square, our group of shopping ladies pooped in for breakfast before starting out day of final Christmas shopping on King Street. Beautiful restaurant, great people watching view from our table too! Service was a little slow, but not terrible and our Server couldn't have been nicer. Highly recommend the stuffed French toast!!! So yum!

This is actually our second visit and both have been fantastic. Excellent service, great value, and very comfortable. Last time we were here, there was a line down the block waiting to get in. This time we made a reservation. Being December, probably didn't really need it but the place did fill up quickly. Menu choices are great. Try this... More

Celebrated office holiday party for lunch. Great lunch menu. I had the scallops and grits sauce fantastic. Everyone was pleased with their choices. Shrimp and grits was good but one comment was it had too many big slices of green pepper and onion, grill cheese and tomato bisque was great, fried green tomatoe sandwiches were huge and very tasty, Waldorf...

I was really disappointed by both the quality of food and the cleanliness of this restaurant. I, along with six of my colleagues, made reservations at this establishment on December 15th. I was surprised to find that we really didn't need reservations once we arrived. The restaurant was no where near capacity. Due to the lack of patrons, one would... More

We have eaten here before and always have a great breakfast. My favorite is one of the eggs benedict options which is served with country ham and collard greens but the others in our party enjoyed their eggs, etc as well.

We ate here on our last day in Charleston, so hoped to get a final fix of southern fare. As it was Sunday, the brunch menu was being served, with some creative takes on some standard brunch items like eggs Benedict on grit cakes. Also had one last taste of shrimp and grits, which was delicious. Atmosphere and service were... More
