Lunch as part of our day at Middleton was better than expected. There was no wait for a table at 12:30, and while the furnishings are nothing special, the views are really beautiful. The menu offers very authentic southern lunch fare - we had the shrimp salad and fried green tomato and bacon sandwiches. Both came with two sides! Definitely plan this as part of your visit to Middleton.

My wife had a salad and a beer. I had a beer and the pulled pork sandwich. Definitely a lot of food and very very good! Highly recommend. A bit pricey for lunch but worth it. Beautiful setting. The air-conditioning was highly appreciated (it was 94 felt like 100). Lovey grounds to walk. Fairly cool (good shade). Not what we expected. These gardens were made of trees and shrubbery. Oldest garden in America. Well worth the price. The trees are magnificent. Some oaks are at least a few hundred years old. Good way to spend 5 hours or so. They have tours and buggy rides etc. We did our own thing.

The dinner itself as excellent. I had a great steak and my wife and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner in a beautiful environment. The service was as good as any other you'll find at high end spots. Best food we had during our visit to Charleston.

It's also a great deal to get access to the grounds for several hours before and after dinner. The grounds have wonderful gardens are great to talk a walk and find quiet romantic spots at one of the ponds or by the Ashley River.

After a hot day touring the plantation my fiance and I decided to check out the cute restaurant on the property. While we weren't starving we decided to have a seat at the bar and get cocktails. We enjoyed talking to Greg whom we assume was the manager. He was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the food, drinks and plantation history. It was a wonderful day and we will be back for sure!

I guess when I hear soul food, I'm not thinking of low country soul food. Beautiful restaurant but not what I expected
