We have always loved Toast -- it is a must-eat every time we are in Charleston. We had our rehearsal dinner here this past Friday and were beyond impressed with every aspect of the evening.

They hosted our 30 guests in the back dining room without any extra fees or minimum payments (every other restaurant on the peninsula had a minimum of at least $2000 or a room fee of $500-$700). They went out of their way to design and print menus which we customized for our event, ensured that the Friday night live music wouldn't interfere and introduced us to the manager and assistant manager in case we needed anything.

The service was wonderful, with two servers dedicated to our party. Everyone raved about the food. We had put a couple of breakfast items on our menu, not expecting anyone to order them since it was dinner time but several people thought this was really cool and did order breakfast.

We personally had the pork chops and the seared ribeye steak which were both delicious.

The decor and atmosphere are casual but very nice. Overall, I think Toast was the perfect location for our rehearsal dinner and would be for any other budget-minded wedding planners. And it will of course continue to be our favorite breakfast place in Charleston the next time we visit.

We went downtown today for brunch at Toast. We had a 25 - 30 minute wait (that was 35 minutes). First the good things... our server Mary was very polite and came back often to check on us, and the prices were pretty reasonable. I wasn't quite sure why there is always such a line for this place. The coffee was subpar, the food wasn't bad, but not amazing. The place was loud and cramped. We ordered the surf and turf (most of it was good, but a few bites tasted like the raw shrimp water got onto the plate) and the low country breakfast (which was pretty decent). Flimsy paper napkins and thin metalware, the whole experience felt more like a dive dinner than a Charleston hotspot. Perhaps I just had the wrong impression, but i was shocked when I got home and saw it ranked so high in Charleston places to eat.

Spend a few extra bucks for fine dinning somewhere else.

Our waiter is very friendly. The food is very good too. It seems like lots of local come here. I love the french bread and the way they prepare them is very different than any other place.
