I was lucky enough to visit Muse with friends during a visit to Charleston and we were really impressed. I love unique food and "one of a kind" restaurants and Muse was a delight It is located in a building from the mid-1800s and it's brimming with character. We were hungry so we all started with appetizers and agreed to... More

We stopped in late (9 30pm) Wednesday night as it was around the corner from our hotel. We sat on the porch and enjoyed a bottle of wine from a good list. I had the shrimp and polenta and my husband had the bolognese. Both were very good and just right portion sizes. We would definitely go back especially in... More

We had reservations on a weekend night at 7:00pm. When we showed up at 6:55 the place was empty except for one couple on the patio and one guy at the bar (no bartender). No hostess. We could hear people talking in the back but still waited five minutes before we were greeted. The interior of the restaurant smelled beyond... More

Restaurant is a little tired looking (ok, more than a little tired looking) but the food and service were excellent. The bartender was great in suggesting wines with tastings upon request. Amazing wine list by the glass. We did pre- theater dinner and they were very respectful of our time needs.

My husband and I went here for dinner. It is in a older home with little rooms that are romanic and have open rooms too. The food was wonderful. I had the crispy walleye and husband had veal. Good choices on the menu. The service was great and would go here again.

Our favorite night spot to drop in for a few drinks with our favorite bartender, Donnie. Menu/food is very good as well. Cool spot :)

Donnie, our bartender offered great, friendly service. Our main course was the short rib and it was very tender and served over a mixture of vegetables. Overall we though the food was very good. This a friendly place where it is easy to meet people.

We had our Friday night dinner of restaurant week at Muse. We had a great time. The dress for most diners was business casual and they were a nice crowd. Muse is housed in a restored house/office in downtown Charleston. They have worked hard to preserve the historic past of the building. We sat upstairs in the “piano” room, and... More

We enjoyed our 3-course meal during "Restaurant Week," which provided the fixed priced complete meal for $30. Good appetizers and dessert selection. Adequate wine menu choices.
