The service and quality of the food are superb. Very nice atmosphere and relatively low noise level. This place did not arrive at it's current level of service and food by attendance they have worked hard and long at it and it shows. I would be proud to recommend it to anyone at any time.

Stayed at the planters inn and ate here our first night! Surpassed all the other restaurants we enjoyed our next 2 days....service is fantastic at Peninsula. Felt very southern authentic. Eat in courtyard if you can outside. Food was fresh & inventive. Froie gras was best we had in our lives....we enjoyed seafood specials. Highly recommend!

You cannot find a better end to the night than saddling up to the bar and ordering a nightcap and a slice of the world-famous coconut cake. It is a great place to people watch, enjoy some sweets, and chat with the bartenders. A true Charleston experience.

One of Charleston's all time best. A beautiful place to dine. Not ideal for children, more for couples. Only bad experience was when we signed up for Thanksgiving and were put in a separate room and not allowed to order from the menu, which we had been told would be possible. Otherwise, consistently good.

The restaurant has very nice ambiance. It was too hot to sit outside. The service was excellent. The ribeye was excellently spiced and done perfectly. The soup and salads were very good. Worth the price.

we came in for dessert last Friday and the coconut cake was as good as we remembered it. 8 layers high, with great icing and excellent coffee. the food looked good here as well (it was the last time we ate dinner here) but if you miss dinner, don't miss the coconut cake for dessert. you will not be disappointed.

Excellent steaks and seafood in a wonderful setting. The patio is very nice. Service is excellent. It was the most exspensive restaurant we visited in Charleston so this place loses a star for the high prices but if money is no object this should be on your list of restaurants not to miss. Located on Meeting street at the old... More

Girlfriend wasn't enjoying her meal and despite the maître di trying his best nothing was changing her take on the place. I enjoyed my meal but it was an expensive night out and you want to a wow factor that we didn't experience.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at the Peninsula Grill. The setting is Old South, (this is downtown Charleston) but it's very comfortable and inviting. There is some very interesting food, especially the appetizers and side dishes. I loved the Split Pea & Mint Soup. I had the Scallops for my main course and stole some of my companions Pan Seared...
