I recently returned from a delightful trip to Charleston, SC. We enjoyed delicious dinners at High Cotton and Husk, but a highlight of the trip were our meals at the Peninsula Grill in the beautiful Planters Inn. Although we stayed at the nearby Charleston Place Hotel, we discovered that the $10 continental breakfast at the Peninsula Grill was terrific and a great value. The ambiance of the restaurant is rich and elegant without being stuffy or pretentious. Our servers, Pam and Jarod were friendly and efficient. Saving the "best for last", we returned to the Peninsula Grill for dinner on our last night in Charleston, and we had an amazing meal. We shared the "trio of soups" (mushroom bisque, heirloom pumpkin, and lobster and corn chowder) as an appetizer, I chose the garlic herb roasted chicken with wilted arugula and mushroom panzanella, sweet potato beignets, and a lemon thyme poultry jus for my entree, and we indulged in the "ultimate coconut cake" with coconut anglaise and strawberries for dessert. Dinner is a bit more formal, but I felt quite comfortable in a collared shirt (without a jacket, which is recommended but not required). Service from the entire waitstaff was "top notch", and our primary waiter, Ralph, helped to make our last evening feel very special and memorable!
