We ate at Peninsula Grill twice on our recent visit to Charleston, once for breakfast and again a day later for a stellar dinner. On both occasions the service was exceptional: for breakfast, the friendly veteran Latrice served our table expertly and graciously, and at dinner Chris guided us through menu and wine selections with the confident aplomb of a seasoned hospitality pro. Meals were in both cases outstanding; we enjoyed our breakfast outside, which was quite pleasant, and at dinner we were happy to enjoy the cooler, more elegant setting the restaurant proper affords. Wouldn’t hesitate to treat ourselves again the next time we are in Charleston, or to recommend it to friends who are planning a trip to Low Country. I was grateful for the non-seafood options that a delicious, seared foie gras and rib-eye steak afforded, as many of Charleston’s better restaurants mainly feature fish and shellfish offerings, which can grow tiresome after a couple of days, however expertly prepared. I know it’s been said to death, but the coconut cake is not to be ignored, and once served is bound to disappear; we hadn’t planned on having more than a bite or two, but that was simply just not in the cards.
