If you stay on the island, chances are you will find this establishment. Everyone in our party ordered fish...and it was fabulous. However the service is fairly slow and very sloppy. Three people at our table ordered a menu item with slight variation. Even the slightest of variations was ignored. It may seem trivial to order something a bit different as the menu suggests, but when food is involved, especially fish, there may be food allergies, or just simple patron preferences. In either instance, either the server should take more care in taking the order and serving it, or the chef should take more care in preparing the food.

Located just next to Marina, which provides for a nice view while eating and drinking. Prices are reasonable and dress is casual. Always a good place to go when staying on the Isle of Palms.

My family spent the week from Christmas Day through New Year's Day on Isle of Palms just northeast of Charleston, SC. Morgan Creek Grill offers daily specials but we ordered from the menu. My husband said it was quite likely the best burger he'd ever had. I enjoyed the she-crab soup. We were there in the mid-afternoon for a light snack but the menu was outstanding. Our daughter and son-in-law made reservations and went back for dinner on New Year's Eve (their anniversary) and were equally pleased with their choices ... they mentioned duck comfit and some other more exotic items. I'd definitely go back ... I must mention the chocolate martini and the specialty drinks such Island Sunset. I'd recommend you go online and look at the detailed menu. In warmer weather, there is outdoor seating. Check this place out!

My husband and I went here for Thanksgiving buffet. I was a little leary as I don't love a buffet but my husband was excited to eat all different types of food so we went for it. We were not disappointed. The food was really fresh and they had a great selection. When we come back to the area we will check them out again.

The restaurant is very pretty and has a beautiful view but it was disappointing. The food was just okay and the prices were high. Portion sizes were small for the price. Service was good. There are much better restaurants in the area.
