Menu was a bit extensive for brunch - nice assortment to choose from, but nothing was very "healthy". I'd go back again though!

We showed up at 8am when the restaurant opened, first ones there. We were "asked" where we would like to sit and we asked for a booth. Waitress said ", that they were too busy" and we could not sit there, why ask?. A gentleman came and said to put us on 23 (I think) which was a booth. By... More

If you are in the mood for fried chicken go to Virgina's on Tuesday for dinner. They have a great fried chicken dinner special. The food was great comfort food with a number of side choices sure to please. Save room for the bannana pudding! Good beer and wine slection. Many people leaving with leftover boxes so go hungry.

We had an early dinner to celebrate a birthday in our group (of three couples) while we were visiting Charleston. We started with deviled eggs and pimento cheese hors d'oeuvres. Our entrees were fried chicken, shrimp and grits, chicken and dumplings, and crab cakes. Clearly a southern menu. We were too full for dessert, but our birthday boy got a... More

I like soft shell crab. Words of advice: Turns out this is available only for 2-3 weeks in the spring and fall. Also the season was almost over.

The concierge of our hotel recommended this restaurant to us. We were greeted at the restaurant by a hostess and were quickly seated. Our waitress I believe was Megan. She told us quickly that there was only 1 fried chicken dinner left which I requested straight away. Right on the menu it mentioned to allow 15 minutes to cook. We... More

If you've not been to Virginia's lately, don't walk...run! We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch yesterday! The food was incredibly delicious and the service was exceptional. We can't wait to return. I devoured the Poutine - that Sawmill gravy was delightful! And, the Fried Chicken will definitely lure you back...it was just perfect ;)

During a 4 day visit to Charleston celebrating my brother's 50th birthday, it was hard to pick a dinner place for the actual day -- there are so many excellent options! But I chose Virginia's on King based on the write-up of their yummy Tuesday fried chicken special since that's a favorite meal he doesn't have often. We went around... More

A fried chicken order came with 3 pieces, 2 sides, corn bread, and a biscuit for just $18. By comparison, my dessert of key lime pie (off-menu) was slightly expensive at $8.
