A-Muse yourself in this charming historical home with great service and the best grilled calamari this side of the Atlantic Ocean. We also enjoyed the spinach gnudi and celebrated our find with prosecco. Cheers!

this place has a lot of character. went for a couple drinks before going to a fancy dinner elsewhere but ended up enjoying my time here more! bartender was very friendly and knowledgeable, other couples at the bar were similarly congenial which made for a fun atmosphere. didnt have anything to eat but the place was packed with dining parties!

We have eaten in most of the restaurants in Charleston and wanted something different and fun. The Muse hit the spot. We tried many specials that were unusual but wonderful. The peach tomato soup hit the spot for a summer dinner. The service was fabulous and our waiter suggested perfect wines with our meals. The atmosphere was cozy and it... More

I don't like seafood so this place seemed to have a decent choice of non-seafood meals. We arrived a few minutes early on what was apparently a slow night. We were shown to a table on the upper floor in a room by ourselves. First one person came to the table and then a different person - we were never... More

Muse was very convenient to my hotel so this is how we picked this restaurant for dinner. We were very happy with the service-our waiter was fantastic. The food was delicious... especially the bruchetta, which was a special that night. The steak was cooked to perfection and the wine list was very nice.

Got to our hotel late and Muse was across the street. The bar was great and the food was over the top. The Calamari is the best I have had and the Bouillabaisse was fabulous! Loaded with great fresh seafood that was perfectly cooked. Highly recommend this for a must stop in Charleston.

Muse is charming and lovely. The staff was great and my dinner was delicious, along with the wine. Muse will now be a must for me on my visits to Charleston, SC. The ambience is excellent.

Muse is a restaurant in a very old home. Romantic, not antiseptic; more like a European feel. The tables are a little small, but they are creative at making room - even when we split a salad. The wine list was good as well. Service was on point - not fussy or pushy. We didn't feel rushed. The food was... More
