    I took the wife for her birthday and invited another couple. The food was delicious. The service was outstanding. Dinner for 4 price was spot on. The couple and the wife between them had 6 glasses of wine. The price-point on the food (pomme frittes appetizer) for two well-sized portions of lobster mac-n-cheese (yes, they use REAL lobster), blackened salmon salad, and another entree was spot on. An excellent and enjoyable dining experience was had by all.

    Off the beaten trail in Mt Pleasant mall. The restaurant is noted as farm to table. More than just fresh ingredients, the chef combines them for great results. Salads and entrees were equally very good.

    My brunch order of filet Benedict was perfect. The meat was tender, the egg just right and small greens (arugula) were delicious. My son ordered the French toast and it was also wonderfully prepared. I swapped one of my two English muffin/filet/eggs for a slice of the French toast--the portions are generous. We will be back!

    overall food was good however we were the first ones for brunch and they were out of the puree to make bellinis. odd for a brunch staple. additionally one plate at our table was delayed so the table sat waiting, food getting cold for it to show up. Server also seemed a bit clueless about the menu and Graze in general.

    We enjoyed our first visit here on a 3 day trip to Charleston that we returned our last night to try additional offerings. The Duck Confit Ravioli was a creative unique blend of tastes for the foodie in our couple, but the traditionalist "licked" his salmon dinner plate clean. Parking was a piece of cake compared to dealing with downtown Charleston, yet the quality of cooking was equal to the best. Only concern: when the sun is getting low, there is an issue with brightness coming through the blinds and even reflecting off the wood and glasses on empty tables (not blocked by bodies). Very nice wine list and really friendly personnel.

    Graze has very good food and the tenderloin with brussel sprouts was awesome. Walking in the front door is not a very welcoming experience, however, and the host was less than accommodating or even welcoming. Not sure what that was about. Our server was pleasant and attentive. Oddly, they were out of 3 items that we ordered (I was really looking forward to the duck confit ravioli), but what we did eventually order was very good.

    I chose to bring my sister and daughter for a birthday "girls night out". We were made to feel at home immediately. I wanted this night to be special for my family, and I was pleased with our experience.The Pimms cup cocktail was as refreshing as our knowledgeable waitress recommended. The calamari fries were tender, crispy and delicious.I appreciated having the small plate choices, and the chicken livers on grits were perfect. The jumbo crab cake was just that, fresh and delicious. We finished our meal with fresh-brewed coffee, and complimentary birthday dessert with a candle on top.

We had Sunday brunch, and it was wonderful! The service was super, and the chicken and waffles were excellent! We dine there often, and highly recommend it!

  • Brunch Here as Good As Lunch/Dinner

    Dined on 9/14/2014
    This is one of our go-to places for lunch and dinner. Yesterday, we needed brunch and noted Graze was open. Easy decision, and a great one! Emilie's service was gracious and prompt. And the food!! Pulled-pork Benedict with eggs done just right vanished in a trace as did an excellent Reuben with succulent meat (as always, accompanying thin fries here are piping hot and just salted enough). The third dish was cubed potatoes done beautifully in duck fat, topped with three juicy link sausages and two perfectly runny fried eggs. Unmentioned on the menu was that bits of crispy boneless duck were mixed in the potatoes. Sublime and brought a smile to this eater's face. A zesty Bloody Mary and a fresh, tangy Mimosa completed a first-rate brunch.

    We were a party of five women looking for a great local spot in Mt. Pleasant, SC. We selected GRAZE and we were delighted with our choice! Our server Leslie was wonderful. She described the dishes perfectly and was spot on! The Kale Ceasar was fabulous as well as the soup as an appetizer. The filet we ordered was cooked perfect, salmon tasty, asparagus amazing and we even finished off with a couple desserts. The apple tarts and chocolate cake was to die for! I would highly suggest GRAZE for a super terrific dinner spot!

    We were in town for a wedding and were extremely please with our dinner at Graze. Our waitress was very friendly (even with us dining with a troublesome tot) and she was knowledgeable of the menu and even gave recommendations for other restaurants in the area. Graze is located in a strip mall with Whole Foods but don't let the location deter you. The food was outstanding and we were very happy with our experience. Would happily return if we're ever in the area again.

    We used Restaurant Week in Charleston to try out several places that would be great venues for guests - Graze is on our list of places to take family and friends. The wait staff were a little less attentive than I expected but everything in the order was correct and delivered at the right temperature and in a way that kept everyone's meal moving on the same timeline. The food - both prix fix and from the menu - was over the top in quality of ingredients, flavor and presentation.

    Came here for our last night in Charleston, the food and service was great but since it has a very open layout and high industrial ceilings it was very loud. It was difficult to talk to my wife sitting next to me. But with that said the food was awesome to the point that even though it was restaurant week we opted to just order off the menu b/c it looked so good and we had to try the Mac. Definitely go here if you have friends with you!

    We dined on Sunday for Restaurant week.... we were excited since they are opening a location in Summerville near us. We expected to much maybe.... The food arrived almost warm. We asked for one filet to be butterflied, it wasn't. The food was decent but would have been excellent had it arrived hot. When it came to desert they only offered two choices on the pre fixed menu which sounded nice but when we ordered the server came back and told us they only had one available.... Go figure it was Sunday night and they were slow. ...we were disappointed to say the least... was looking forward to having a new place to dine in Summerville. ...... It appears I'll be looking someplace else. ....

    Everyone in our party enjoyed their food. I had the crab Benedict and others had the chicken and waffles. Since I'm not a food critic, I won't try to describe except to say that both were moveable and if back in Mount Pleasant, I will definitely go back to Graze. I would have given it 5 stars except for the ambiance. We made a reservation for 7 people and they seated us on the bar side which felt cramped. The service was adequate. Good is the reason to go!

    Graze is one of my favorites. Watching master chef and all the great food places in Charleston make me a little bit of a food snob. Graze is always great! We ate at the bar and Leslie was great too with excellent suggestions and willing to have things tweaked for us. Many thanks and we will see you again soon!

    The Charleston area has so many great, unique places, so there is always a new place you can try. I love that, but I can't get enough of Graze. I would go there every night if I could. Their lump crab cake is phenomenal, as is their cilantro jalapeno margarita. It's spicy and amazing! I have tried other dishes as well and have yet to be disappointed. The staff is pretty friendly and knowledgeable. The menu is creative an large enough that it takes a few minutes to decide. The atmosphere is classy but not pretentious, and they are good with children. You won't find crayons and coloring pages, but a decent children's menu and staff that is not turned off by young children. They were wonderful with our 2 and 4 year olds.
