We had a great experience at the peninsula grill in Charleston. The service was great from start to finish. They are famous for their coconut cake and it was delicious! Would recommend if you visit Charleston but make sure you book! It's pricey but worth it.

A beautifully structured menu prepared with a high degree of professionalism and love. My wife has dietary challenges that presented no problem to the kitchen. An elegant meal, large wine list and non pompous extremely professional staff make for an unhurried dining experience rarely found in todays turn em and burn em restaurants. A must go if you are in... More

We were royally treated in honor of our anniversary. Weather was delightful so we could eat outside in the beautiful garden area. Our food and drink were excellent. My steak couldn't have been done more perfectly. My husband's duck was outstanding! Our special dessert, the coconut cake! Staff were excellent and very accommodating.

Located within the Planter's Inn the Peninsula Grill was a wonderful fine dining experience with a varied menu to satisfy your fish, poultry or meat desires. Think of any superlative and use it willingly to describe this restaurant. The Ultimate Coconut Cake was incredibly light and beyond delicious. Don't miss this restaurant.

Thank you for such a lovely review. Charleston is fortunate that the bounty of the Atlantic ocean is at our door step. We would have no excuse for not serving the best shellfish and seafood possible. Our relationships with the local fishmongers guarentee the best of the catch. Thank you for dining with us. We look forward to serving you... More
