  • POST HOUSE BROUGHT IT HOME!

    From the moment we walked into the Post House, we knew we were going to have a very good dining experience. The staff at the maitre'd's station were very welcoming and seated us at a table that we requested on the tavern side of the restaurant. Our server, Lela, was attentive and knowledgeable and even brought us a tiny, complimentary goat cheese appetizer as new patrons of the restaurant. Everything we had--from the salad; seafood chowder; shrimp pirlou; and wine--met and exceeded our expectations. The manager, Noah, stopped by our table and was genuinely solicitous about our evening at the Old Village Post House. It was easy to tell him that we had an enjoyable meal. I believe I said: "You had us at the goat cheese!" We'll be back!

    We have eaten at Old Village Post House several times and have had excellent food and excellent service every time. This dinner was a celebration for our 46th wedding anniversary. The staff all signed a card to give us best wishes, which was a nice and personal touch. They also gave us a glass of champagne. It is a very pleasant setting and offers an innovative menu. This evening the specials emphasized peach (drink, salad and dessert). We both had a seafood pirlou which was superb. We will go back again for sure.

    I had the opportunity to dine here with my family and what an amazing experience we had. We got there right at 5:30pm when they began dinner service, so it was very quiet as we were one of two guests that had arrived, but we liked that. I love where it's located. It's a very quaint and peaceful part in Mt. Pleasant. The service was first-class and the food was AMAZING!!! My parents don't always have an opportunity to get out to dine and they can be picky eaters, but they loved what they ordered and were still talking about it days after. Great work you all! Thank you for a wonderful evening. This is must-add to your list of places to dine! I can't wait to come back :-)

    We have been to the OVPH many times for wine dinners but never just for dinner. We obviously have been missing out on great dinners. The food was fantastic. The grouper was perfectly prepared with a lovely sweet corn tamale and the homemade fettucine with summer vegetables & braised chicken melted in my mouth. The hopping john side dish was yummy as well. All in all, a lovely dinner. We will definitely be back.

    The Post House is 1 1/2 blocks from my home. We have been there many, many times over the years and have ALWAYS been pleased with everything about this place. The service, food and atmosphere is always perfect. Last night we ate on the patio, it was simply lovely. We also love the bar area where it is intimate and clubby. The main dining room somehow always feels fresh, bright, sparkling and we love it for Sunday Brunch. We bring guests visiting the area here and they always smile and relax at this wonderful neighborhood restaurant and envy our good fortune to live in beautiful Mt. Pleasant.

    I haven't been here in almost 10 years. I am not sure why? Everything was wonderful! The service was top notch! A great selection of specialty drinks made with fresh peaches and their own house brand, Maverick, bourbon, rum, wines, etc. We had mussels to start with, the sauce was perfect, not too garlicky, but enough to give great flavor. Fresh fish was wahoo and it was prepared perfectly. We had peach cobbler with ice cream for desert. Just perfect. We sat at the bar and Zack was our bartender and was so friendly. We will definitely be back when we visit the area again!

    This little gem is not to be missed. This is one of our local dining destinations when we aren't in the mood to go to downtown Charleston. It never disappoints. Early for our reservation, we sat at the bar. Our bartender, Zach, was delightful, knowledgeable and entertaining. From the second we stepped into the front door, the staff was affable and lovely. The food was, as usual, delicious. We will continue our tradition of having the Old Post on our list of favorites during our visit.

    It has been years since we have eaten at Old Village Post House. This dinner reminded us why. Husband's gazpacho had few veggies but tomatoes, no heat, and so salty he ate only half. The waitress asked if there was a problem, he said it was too salty for his taste. My watermelon/tomato salad, was okay. However, my grouper was raw in the middle, the avocado lime salad was a green goo artistically placed on the plate, and the tamale was all masa, with a couple of corn kernels here and there. A watercress, tomato, and corn salad was nice. I ate that and the top and bottom of the fish which was the cooked part. Husband's special black drum was fine, but nothing special. We declined dessert. It will be years before we return.

    I've been to Old Village Post House many times, but my most recent trip was a very special occasion. They did not disappoint. The service was impeccable, the food outstanding. The staff timed our multi-course meal so that we were able to fully enjoy the experience without ever feeling rushed. As always, the food was delightful (no matter how full you are, dessert is a must). It was a night to remember, and I look forward to future celebrations at the Post House.

    This place was great! We ate in the main dining room and even though the kitchen was less than ten feet away, we weren't disturbed by it. The food was incredible. We had the truffle fries and shrimp creole. Both were so tasty. If I had to find a downside to our experience, it would be the fact that the tables are close together. We could hear our neighbors' entire discussion and I'm sure they could hear ours. Overall, I would recommend the Old Village Post House to anyone looking for a good southern meal.

    Dessert could have been better. Need more local favorites. Had chocolate pie (which was more like a French silk and a cheesecake), and sorbet. Chocolate pie in the south should be a custard with a "mile high" meringue. And lemon for the sorbet was not the "seasonal local fruit". I would have expected a peach sorbet.

    Our dinner was great. I had the Grouper and it was cooked perfectly. I had bites of the Fried Shrimp app as well as the Burger and both were quite tasty. Food was on point. Service lacked. Our waiter was knowledgeable about the menu but was slow and forgot our drinks a couple of times. Still a great place to eat! I would definitely give it a second chance.
