Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "Salad came out with the entree. Entree was taken back to kitchen and same food returned. Service was ok, new waitress was conflused."

  • "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
  • "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
  • "Very good service. Beautiful sunset over river. Food was good. Manager came by table to ask if all was okay."

  • "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
  • "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."
    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!"

  • "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."

  • "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!"

    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "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. "
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "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. "
    Dined on 5/26/2014
  • "Chose Morgan Creek because of it's convenient location during our stay at Isle of Palms. Chuck, our waiter, did an excellent job and the food was good. The best part was the view. Watching the boats come in was very interesting and we had the perfect table to see everything. While we ate in the restaurant the bar scene outside seemed like it was a lot of fun with live music and lots of people."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "One of the managers, "Shawn", takes a personal interest in making certain everyone gets fantastic service. He checked on us constantly and really went out of his way to make our recent dining experience special. The food was great and the prices reasonable. Good value for your money!"

  • "We started our vacation having dinner at Morgan Creek Grille, and we ended it there because there was no place we could have enjoyed more. The food and the service were perfect - and the location/view was fantastic. We'll definitely go back our next time in SC."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "Recommended by many - well worth it. Secured table overlooking the water and the early portion of their Friday musical offering. Appetizers - the fried oysters and the seared scallops were each outstanding. Seeing Goose Island on the beer menus was a personal plus too. Dinner - the fish special was phenominal while the other two menu items were just as good. An "A" rating "

  • "A great place to eat with a great view. The food was excellent - the sushi nachos were amazing as was the duck flatbread as well. All of the dishes selected by our party of 4 were prepared to perfection. The service is friendly, and very attentive. I highly recommend Morgan Creek, we have already agreed we'll be back the next we are in Charleston."

  • "As always we had a great meal at Morgan Creek Grill. My salmon dish was outstanding! We wish we could have sat by the window, but on a saturday night we know everyone can't sit by the window!! It looks like the tables of 6 are more likely to have a window spot - we will remember that next time and try to go with 2 other couples! "
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "The menu offers a good variety of seafood without over whelming you with a ton of choices. Everyone at our table enjoyed their meal. The portions are more than adequate. You are offered an equal amounts of your main dish with the sides. "
