Had this reservation for 6 months. Girls trip reunion to Charleston. Saved for the last evening to make it a special night. We walked in and it was so loud it sounded like a train was passing. "The roar of the crowd" is a perfect way to describe our experience. Had I read the other reviews first, I'm not sure... More

A lot of reviewers have complained about the noise. I agree, I can't really enjoy a meal if I can't hear the people around me. By chance, we had reservations later in the evening, 8:30 PM, and by the time we got there, not all of the tables were full. The noise level was just fine. So if noise is... More

Wife and I made dinner reservations for 7:30 but stopped in around 6:15 because it started to rain and we were nearby. The bar is small but well appointed. Corey the bartender welcomed us and was very gracious. I ordered a southern manhattan and my wife ordered a glass of Chardonnay. The manhattan was fabulous - Knob Creek, Southern Comfort,... More

If you are in Charleston and like fine dining, this is your place. The service is impeccable as was the entire experience. Between everyone, we had scallops, numerous fish dishes, steaks and one of each appetizer. Everything was perfect. The desserts are equally perfect and do yourself a favor and order a piece of coconut cake. It's the best you'll... More

This restaurant is connected to the Planter's Inn Hotel. As you enter, you first encounter the bar. We were guests at the hotel and came back late one night wanting a drink. To keep a long story short, the bartender was hating her job and we were the brunt of it. We got up to leave and wanted to enter... More

We had anticipated a fabulous dining experience after reading all the great reviews in several guides. Upon being seated it was quite obvious our party of four would not be able to carry on any type of conversation because of the full house combined with terrible acoustics. We informed our waiter and hostess the reason we were leaving.

Peninsula Grill never disappoints. My first visit was shortly after it opened... Must have been 10 or 15 years ago. It was fabulous then and it still is! Great decor by the acclaimed designer Amelia Handegan, provides a dramatic and elegant ambiance. The staff work like a well-oiled machine. Very attentive but never obsequious. I had the ribeye, and it... More

Food was wonderful, from the appetizers through the desserts. And yes, I can confirm that the coconut cake is spectacular. Service was also great and the waiter made several very thoughtful suggestions. At least I think they were thoughtful. Hard to hear him. Hard to hear folks sitting next to me.
