While visiting the house and gardens decided to take a chance and grab lunch. They had a buffet for $20 which included a drink. The food was great!

The mussels were too tough to eat, management offered a replacement, but was refused, went home hungry.

I've never written a negative review before and I feel bad but we heard how this restaurant had high ratings before we went and were all disappointed. Those that ordered the buffet, that was pretty good, but I ordered Shrimp & Grits and my sister-in-laws ordered the Greens & Dumplings. Both dishes were so bad that we couldn't eat them,... More

It should be noted that reservations are required. The food at this restaurant was fantastic. We ended up staying for a couple hours and enjoying several courses during supper service. We also enjoyed the southern sampler for lunch the next day which had some of the best fried chicken I've ever had! This is a must try in the area!

Very fresh food, some ppl at the table loved their ribs and duck. I ordered the gnocchi special which wasn't too great. But the scallops app was perfect. Michael was a great server as well and made our friend's birthday memorable! The dessert was incredible, like a caramel waffle cone deconstructed with ice cream.

My family and I live in Charleston and always support Middleton Place through a member ship. The gardens are beautiful and the best place in Charleston to walk bar none. We regularly visit the restaurant for lunch and dinner but lately the quality and taste of the food has not been up to previous standards. I am unsure why maybe... More

Don't get me wrong - This is a wonderful place to eat. Though, there were a few issues with this place. We had decent service, came by once in a while. Our waitress was very helpful while she was with us, understanding she was very busy. All of us got the Southern Sampler Luncheon. There were plenty of selections to... More

We came here for dinner. Reservations recommended. The food was delicious! I got the sustainable seafood dish and orange sorbet for dessert. They also have delicious bread although they only bring you one piece.

We toured everything until we got hungry. Restaurant had a 30-40 minute wait for a table but was worth it! (It's also the only restaurant close around!). But food and service was great!!!

We decided on a late lunch at 2:30 pm instead of dinner. We opted to try their buffet for $22. We wanted to be able to sample a variety of low country food. The buffet included a non alcoholic drink . It did not include a dessert. The food was good and we enjoyed it very much. Southern fried chicken,... More
