We wanted to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary at a special restaurant and looked to Relais and Chateaux offerings for a memorable dining experience for our weekend celebration. Sadly, Peninsula Grill was our least favorite culinary experience of the trip - we expected more from a restaurant with R&C ratings. While the staff was attentive, the service is rushed. Upon...

In November, 2016. we were staying at Planters Inn, and I had booked a culinary package, “Gourmet Getaway,” with Breakfasts and an evening with their Tasting Menu and wine pairings, plus we also booked a second night’s dining at Peninsula Grill, to order from the à la carte menu, with our own wine pairings – something that we have learned...

What a wonderful experience! We had a nice romantic dinner here and we were lucky enough to be able to get an outdoor table. The service was perfect, the food delicious and the overall mood and ambiance was great for a special night out. Highly recommend the she crab soup as an appetizer; it was the best one I tasted...

I had dinner here in March with my mom and aunt during a birthday trip to Charleston for my mom. The food was amazing, and the service was even better. All of the staff were very attentive and friendly. They also have very lovely outdoor seating in a garden area, which was really nice in the evening. We also each... More

The Peninsula Grill was fantastic. It is located in the Market Street area of Charleston. The food was fantastic. I tried the Filet and my wife ordered the Sheep's Head (fish) special. She said it was the best meal she has ever eaten. WOW-she is tough to please. My meal was also outstanding. The staff were excellent, knowledgable, and attentive... More

We had a marvelous dinner at the Peninsula Grill. Our waiter could not have been more attentive or personable, and the food was delicious. Although an exceptional restaurant, I believe it was very fairly priced for the quality.

This is the place to try the Duck entrée. Seasoned to perfection. My husband had the Trigger fish. Presentation and flavor, spot on. What... More

Another outstanding meal was had tonight at this old school establishment! Classy ambiance starts right at the street entrance, through the iron gate and up the lush, palm lined alley, right into the inviting bar area! Try and get a booth in this area, a little more quiet and romantic if you are wining and dining your significant other! Our... More
