Diner Reviews
  • "We have a place in Wild Dunes and have been going there for years and must say food was best ever."
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "We took a group of 7 including a pre-schooler and got a table reservation only an hour ahead of time. The service was a tad on the slow / distracted side as the place seemed very busy. The food taste and portions were fine, no complaints. My 70-year old teetotaler mother was not happy with the sherry wine in her she-crab soup, however, since there was no mention of it. They replaced it with a dry version rather quickly. This is a good spot for Isle of Palms / Wild Dunes vacationers since it is convenient, has a nice view of the waterway, along with a lively outside atmosphere for after dinner."

  • "This place has it all- location/ activity/ great food/ earlier with live music- later for the dinner crowd. The seafood bowl was excellent!"

  • "Morgan Creek Grill is located in Isle of Palms, SC right on the water, so it is absolutely beautiful. My family took me out to dinner for my birthday and I enjoyed an outstanding birthday dinner. The food was good. Our attentive waiter even provided me with a free creme brulee since it was my birthday. Truly dining at Morgan Creek Grill was a very pleasant experience."

  • "Morgan Creek Grill is a wonderful restaurant. I took my wife there for our anniversary and we were not disappointed. The menu selection was excellant and the food and service was outstanding. After our meal we went outside and enjoyed the outdoor bar and music. We really enjoyed ourselves and by the looks of it so did a number of people. We will definately be back."

  • "Very popular. Music was outside and we were inside allowing conversation to be plesant. Food was great, service very good, view nice, great destination for casual dining."

  • "We took guests staying with us and all four of us loved it! I can't wait to go again and bring more friends and family."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "This was our first time dinning at this restaurant. We arrived about fifteen minutes before our reserved time and were seated about fifteen minutes after our reserved time. The staff was nice, informative and friendly. The food was good and arrived not long after ordering. The down side was that the young male who brought our food spilled the cocktail sauce which splatter on one of my guest's white pants. Our waitress was very apologetic."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Crowded and noisy as expected on high season Saturday summer eve so service was a bit slow. Food was all around outstanding; tasty and well prepared. The fish bowl was incredible...fresh and prepared in savory tomato broth. We'll be back."

  • "We came to Isle of Palms to see the Tyler Nail Trio of which my son is a member. Outdoor venue that seemed to be serious about music the way they wanted the bands on time and ready to go etc. Unfortunately, it is a patio, on ground level, rather than a raised stage and no true listening area - just adjacent to bar. Kids were walking across the venue, climbing the tarp poles. Parents and staff never made an effort to stop. It would be fine to dance out in front to music. Band stopped a couple times as distracted - so just a few real music patrons seemed interested. We were given a great table on the deck at 5 pm to eat, continue to listen and watch. Vey nice and we each loved the food. Walked around, great view, very attractive place."

  • "Flounder was awful. Was told it was the whole flounder. Still do not know what type of fillet it was. Very dry and the worst piece of fish I have ever tried to eat."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "My wife and I wanted a nice place to take a cousin for a nice "Thank You!" dinner for hosting us. Morgan Creek Grill was perfect. We all very much enjoyed our dinners, an assortment of friend shrimp and oysters, and broiled flounder and scallops. Everything was tasty. The broiled items were tender and perfectly seasoned; the fried items not overly breaded or greasy. The accompanying sauces perfectly complimented the seafood. The service was great too. After dinner we had drinks outside listening to the live music. We highly recommend Morgan Creek Grill!"
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "The food at Morgan Creek Grill is always wonderful!! The salmon special was fabulous as always as was the key lime pie. The views cannot be beat. Service is good to great, my most recent visit it fell in the "good" category."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "This restaurant overlooking the InterCoastal and Dewees Island has the best seafood dishes, ambience and sunset views for a great price. Wonderful place to take out of town guests for the beach resort experience to the Charleston area lowcountry."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "We make it a habit of dining at MCG every time we visit Isle of Palms. The view is always breathtaking and the food is very good. This evening the standout was the seared scallops appetizer with asparagus and a balsamic reduction! The service was a tad bit slow but I think the kitchen was backed up, so this is not a knock on our server who was very engaging and informative."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Wonderful place to eat and hang out. Great food, their was music, games, right on the water and service great too."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Great food and service. Nice options on kids menu. We had 2 tables with family and when I called to ensure we were sitting near each other, they were very accommodating and put us all together."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "We had a party of 8 to celebrate my Mom's birthday. The service was very good. I had brought a birthday cake and they took care of that. The food was delicious. We never felt rushed. Thanks for making my mom's day special."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "We ordered steak and fish, both of which were inedible. The steak was so fatty that I literally couldn't cut it. My husband's fish was floating in butter, notwithstanding the fact that butter wasn't even mentioned in the description of the menu item. My daughter ordered a chicken and vegetable soup, which didn't have a single piece of chicken in it. On a positive note, the view was outstanding and our waiter was courteous and professional about the bad meal."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "On a busy Saturday evening, we were seated 15 minutes after reservation. Delay may be attributable to slow service, as diners can't finish until served. However, I requested a quiet table with a view. They tried to accomodate these requests. I would not choose this restaurant on a Saturday evening again because of the crowd and noise. The waiter was clearly too busy to serve us quickly, but he was kind, courteous and personable in addition to being a competent waiter. I had the catch of the day salmon lowcountry style which was the best food I have eaten in a long while! I eat salmon, collards and grits in my own home frequently and didn't think they could improve, but they did! The creme brulee was over the top. Thank you!!!"

  • "One of our favorites...great food....great view....great service. The sunflower crusted fish is definitely my favorite."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Requested a table by the window. We were seated as far away as could be , next to a wall and the kitchen separation screen behind us. When I told the hostess I requested a window , we were told to wait. Ten minutes later we were seated at the window. Fifteen minutes later I looked to the table where we were going to sit, it disappeared! Food was so-so. I ordered their summer salad for $10. Size of regular salad with a few sunflower seeds and mandarin oranges on top. Not worth it at all. Husband had a broiled seafood platter that was ok. I had shrimp tacos, again very small and not that tasty. The outside bar area looked lively but I am sure it was the same food. Their goal is to turn tables over quickly .Will not return"

  • "We vacation every year on Isle of Palms and visit Morgan Creek Grill each time. They are so accommodating to large family groups which is so helpful. The service is very efficient and the manager came around multiple times to make sure all ok. Good selection of fresh seafood. Would highly recommend for family and/or friends dinners."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "Been here twice - first time was great, this time not so much. "Fishy" crab cakes & pasta overpowered with lemon flavor. Service was so/so. Equally crowded both times, so can't explain why - will try one more time and hope to have better result"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Wonderful food and service, table right beside the window (thanks to making the reservation). Tasty oyster appetizer, followed by the best she crab soup, and outstanding seafood entree. We visited upstairs more casual dinner a few nights earlier and loved it too. Bustling 4-7pm happy hour outside. We've not been for Sunday brunch but hear it's also excellent. Recommend to anyone visiting the area."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "The specials were interesting and worth trying. The view of the water from the main dining room was a huge plus. The menu is somewhat limited, but there is enough variety. Food and drinks are served on three levels and the outside scene was boisterous and people looked quite happy."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "When getting up I tripped on the chair and fell . none of the wait staff asked to see if I was alright. other customers did ask. This lack of concern means we will not go back even though we have been going there for the last several years. Food wise the special was just ok, the seafood combo was good."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "We made a reservation for 8 and a two month old for an early evening meal. We were seated immediately at a table overlooking the water. The menu offered a great selection for those who wanted something a little fancier, but also offered a variety of fried fresh seafood. The food was ready quickly (that's important when you have a baby with you) and it was delicious. It was reasonably priced as well. I would highly recommend dining at Morgan Creek."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Salad came out with the entree. Entree was taken back to kitchen and same food returned. Service was ok, new waitress was conflused."

  • "Very good service. Beautiful sunset over river. Food was good. Manager came by table to ask if all was okay."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "We had a table of 6 at 7:15pm. We were seated promptly and a waiter appear ed as soon as we were settled. Everyone raved re their dishes. With. no room to spare, we had to try the desserts which were all exceptional,"
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "We've been to Morgan Creek Grill quite a few times, it always seems like a good idea because of the atmosphere and beautiful views but always a disappointment when the food arrives. Tried it again for Fathers Day and were again disappointed. The shrimp and grits...very small portion and bland. The hamburger and coleslaw was average, kind of along the lines of something you'd get at Applebee's. Our son got a breakfast dish and he thought it was "OK". Probably our last visit unless we come for music and cocktails upstairs."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "outstanding setting with view of marina from most tables. Seafood is outstanding, our service was great, attentive but not obtrusive. Romantic dining at sunset with views of the water hard to beat."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "The view, service, and food were all above par at Morgan Creek Grill! We ate lunch upstairs (more casual) and then went back for dinner!"
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "We were pleasantly surprised at the dinner, however, we were disappointed with the service. The food was well prepared and nice size portions. We noticed others tables were getting better service than ours. Overall, I think the service is good, but, we caught our server on a bad night."

  • "We had seen this restaurant from a boat before and it looked like a fun place! Food was really good! Great for our large group! Loved sitting with a view of the water, while enjoying the AC!"

  • "Food was amazing! Crab cakes and fried shrimp were delicious - very kid friendly and a beautiful view of the water!"

  • "We always eat at Morgan Creek Grill when we visit Isle of Palms yearly. The food has never disappointed us but the service is always lacking. Forgotten side salads, waiting a long time for water/ice tea refills and a waitress who seemed to disappear quite frequently. "

  • "we were looking for a scenic view for an out of town guest, we were very satisfied with our choice at Morgan Creek, received a table by the window so the view was perfect. Service good and food was presented well and great tasting. Prices were resolvable, I would definitely go back again. I have also been to the bar on the top floor great for casual occasions. All in all the place is great. "
