“Romantic dinner ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2015 NEW

We had an amazing evening from start to finish at the Peninsula Grill. We dined outdoors in the garden and the ambience was lovely. The lobster and crab duo was delicious, and the lobster three way was outstanding! We finished our meal off with the legendary coconut cake which was devoured in short order. I would highly recommend this restaurant for all visitors to Charleston!

“Wonderful Anniversary Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2015 NEW

Excellent restaurant right in downtown next to The Old Charleston Market. Wonderful atmosphere, great staff and amazing cuisine. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed celebrating our anniversary at this excellent establishment. Everyone should definitely try the delicious Coconut Cake served here, it's without compare.

“Easily Our BEST Charleston Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2015 NEW

When every part of a meal is great - service, atmosphere and FOOD are great, what can the conclusion be? Server let us finish every course before bringing the next thing. This restaurant is not where we would eat in a hurry to get to the evening activity - this IS the evening activity!

“So very noisy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2015 NEW

This is probably where I've had one of the best crudo dishes in my life, but we were so disappointed by the noise level at this restaurant. We could hardly each other! The seats were cramped too. The overall ambience is the reason I gave PG only 3 stars.

“Delicious”

Wonderful meal, everything in our party was prepared beautifully. Scallops entree is very tasty and the crab cakes are great. Don't miss the panna cotta and coconut cake!
