Our family (2 children who are 9 and 12) dined here on the 2nd night of our visit. The food was delicious, but the atmosphere was much too subdued for us. Most of the men were in jackets and the women were formally dressed as well. The few kids that were in the restaurant were older and also dressed in... More

During our stay in Charleston in December we had breakfast twice at the Peninsula Grill. Although it is known for its special dining experience, if you enjoy breakfast like we do, you should try the Peninsula Grill. The continental breakfasts were excellent for the price. Included were: wonderful fresh fruit, a small croissant and a smal scone, yogurt, home-made granola... More

This is fine dining the way it should be. The food was delicious. I had the octopus crudo followed by local wreckfish. Flavors were point on. Service was remarkable and the wine list is excellent

My husband snagged a last minute reservation for a booth in the bar and once we arrived, found we had been upgraded to a table in the dining room. Food, drinks and service were on point. Of course, you must have the coconut cake even if you're stuffed!

Our interest in the Grill itself was superseded by my love of coconut cake. At $12 per slice it certainly is the high end price I have ever paid to indulge my love to this cake. Expectations were set very high, perhaps too high to be fully realized here on earth. The Ultimate Coconut Cake was very good, excellent but... More

We had a wonderful dinner at the Peninsula while guests at the Planters. The service is excellent and the food was very good, especially the coconut cake which lived up to its reputation. We had a drink at the small but nice bar first and the bartenders are top notch.
