I looked forward to trying the Peninsula grill for many days prior based upon Trip advisor reviews and was not disappointed. To start the old part of Charleston is simple beautiful, cobbled streets, moss hanging from old oak trees-Southern Charm epitomized.
To start the bread was warm and delicious and the waiter, Ralph was very good-knew the menu inside and out and was quick to recognize a fellow foodie. I started with the the oyster stew, very good with 4 large and very briny oyster on top. The sauce was yummy to dip your bread in. For my main course I had a special. Halibut on a bed of risotto with a truffle infused pea and butter reduction which was very good. My only problem with the dish and which forced me to only give the grill a 4 start review was the Halibut was too salty and a little dry. Not enough to send the dish back but caused it to miss the mark. Desert and coffee to follow was excellent. Had their famous coconut cake which won on iron chief and was, frankly the best I have ever had. I would without a doubt recommend this restaurant and next time I am in town I will try another I found just down the street FIG (food is good).
