    We have eaten here maybe a half dozen times or so and always find the food satisfying and delicious and the staff attentive without being bothersome. The scenery on the creek with the big boats and homes across the water are beautiful and romantic as well. Definitely will be back.

    When we first arrived we were a little taken aback because of an oyster roast outside and I thought it was going to ruin the evening; it did not. Our reservations were made for 8pm but we arrived at 7pm just to check it out. (I could only make the reservation on line. I tried to call several times) When we got there I asked if there was anything earlier and was seated immediately. We were just out for a casual dinner and this is a great place for that. You can show up in business casual or shorts and a pull over t-shirt. The staff were friendly, knowlegable and very courtious. We ordered 2 appitizers ( You have got to get the Beef Tips, they are delicious ) and just 1 dinner meal because we never eat it all when we order 2 main courses.

    This year at MCG, we had one of the best tables in the place, right next to the water on the Intercostal Waterway. The play of the lights on the water was spectacular. The scallops were by far the best thing on the menu this night. Sweet, cooked just right, they really were great. The potato crusted flounder, however was not so good. The breading was too thick and it looked like it stayed in the fryer a little long. It was dry and just not up to their high standards, so this year it was one hit and one miss. We will be back, however.

    My group returned for a second visit while on vacation because of the great food, friendly service, and a table on the deck by the water. The seared scallops, potato crusted flounder, shrimp and grits, and the salads were just right. The beer and wine list met our needs, but we found that the cocktails were the only disappointment.

    We ate here on a recommendation of a local. It was very crowded as there was an oyster roast being held outside plus it was a Saturday night. But with the reservation with open table we were seated right away at 7 pm with a window seat and a round table for 6.....perfect! Everyone enjoyed their meal...I had she crab soup, good but I've had better. My husband wanted to go back again, but with a Mecca of restaurants in the charleston area, I said no!

    Dined on 10/7/2014
    Eight of us came to Charleston to celebrate our anniversaries. I guess I mentioned this when I made the reservation. When we arrived a table was waiting off next to the bar and off the wine room, very nice location for our group. The food was very good. My husband said it was the best steak he's had in some time. Go for the steak, that's their specialty. A couple of us had the surf and turf, that's the deal in the place otherwise it's al a carte and the bill can add up. The staff brought in an anniversary treat for us to top off the night. We were touched since we didn't expect the treat. Overall, the night couldn't have been better, good food and good friends. We would recommend if steak is your thing.

    Great food and fast service. The crab cakes were loaded with crab and the scallops w/ blue cheese and balsamic vinegar was surprisingly tasty. Next time I think I'll try eating inside because the view was restricted and at dusk the island insects come out.

    Dined on 9/12/2014
    We were seated immediately upon arrival, while walk-ins had to wait up front,. The dining room was very busy (restaurant week) and a bit loud. While our service was generally good, it could have been a little faster. All four of us selected from the "three-courses-for-$30" restaurant week menu. The filet tips appetizer was mouth wateringly delicious. The quality of the fresh Mahi and preparation were good. It came with blue cheese cole slaw which was poured over the fish and cooled it off prematurely. The kitchen was happy to warm it up again for me. The bed of orzo pasta on which the fish was placed was barely noticed. However, while this sounds negative, the flavors were very good; I would order it again, just with the slaw on the side.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/11/2014
    Our table was ready when we arrived at 7:00 on a Thursday night during "Restaurant Week". Our server did a very good job taking our beverage and food orders promptly, and getting each person's requests correct. The apps and entrees, and desserts were served fairly quickly and were satisfactory, but they lacked any special or memorable tastes or touches. For example, the filet was ordered rare, it came out medium; the chicken breast was flavorful, but the texture was dry; the shrimp and fish entrees were better flavored; the upside-down cake was dry, but the key lime was very good. Our group of 6 had a good time. Thank you!

    This was a wonderful deal for restaurant week. The food was wonderful and the server was very good. I love this place because it has 3 different areas depending on what you want. Fine dining downstairs, bar food and more casual upstairs or an outside bar for wonderful evenings. Being on the water is a plus. Beautiful sunsets!

    We've visited Isle of Palms twice and have been to Morgan Creek 3 times. I'm sure we;ll be back. Good food, good service and if you're lucky and can get on the deck, it's a fantastic outdoor dining experience. Even inside, they've done a terrific job of setting up the place so you know you're dining on the water. If you're in the area, I'd highly recommend this place for dinner. Good for families as well.

    The restaurant has a great view of the water and a very nice ambience. We took my sister there for her birthday, which I noted on the reservation. We sat at our table for 15 minutes before anyone came to wait on us. The service was slow, the waitress failed to refill our water glasses, left the dirty plates on the table after we finished eating. My steak was fatty, the flounder didn't appear to be flounder at all. We weren't offered dessert which I found surprising since we made her aware we had a birthday celebrant at the table. I went to find the manager to get our check after waiting for 10 minutes to get it. He nor the waitress seemed concerned that we were not happy. Overall,Morgan's Creek Grill was a huge disappointment.

    This was our second visit and I have to say, while the food is good, there is something off about the staff. The staff is polite but not overly friendly. We were greeted when we came in, but not in a very welcoming manner. In fact, we actually arrived a few minutes early, and the restaurant was not yet open. There was a rope in front of the door which once the restaurant did open a lady removed said nothing and returned inside. I'll probably go back for the brunch and the view and just learn to expect polite but not friendly service.

    I made my reservation a month ago for 7:30. I am 73 and my husband is 79. We can hear better at a table by the window. We arrived at 7:15 and were not seated until 8:15. We were often told it would it would be just a few minutes but they had to deal mostly with large groups. This was a special time for us and our 2 adult children from out of town. Waiting to eat this long is difficult for older folks.

    The table was ready for our group, the service was excellent, and the she crab soup was very good. Some of the other food was a little bland, but overall this is a nice neighborhood restaurant. There are televisions showing sports, or better, you can look out at the boats coming and going from the marina. When we were there, it was too hot to eat outside, but that's available in more pleasant weather.
