dessert for birthday celebrant.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat FindThe Old Village Post House was a great find for an anniversary dinner. In Mt. Pleasant but only about 15 minutes from the Market in Charleston, this felt like a New England seaside town. It was only about a 10 minute drive from our hotel on East Bay Street. Menu was interesting and food selections turned out to be fabulous.The main dining room was both comfortable and attractive.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFine Dining experienceGreat service, great food, great atmosphere! Attention to detail in every aspect was very much appreciated. We were celebrating our 40th anniversary. It was perfect.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love the Old Village Post HouseOne of our favorite restaurants to go to when we vacation in Charleston area. We are never disappointed. They are also very accommodating with my wife's food allergies.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary dinnerWe enjoyed our Anniversary dinner at Old Post House.

Great intimate spot to dine in the Old Village...6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time and would go backSaw great reviews and took a chance on my first trip to Charleston. We were one of the last parties seated for dinner so the noise level was not a factor. The server was really great, the food was delicious, local, carefully prepared. Would definitely recommend.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWould highly recommend!We have not been to Charleston in several years and The Old Village Post house was a favorite back then and after this trip it still is. The atmosphere, food, wine list and service was great. If you are looking for an upscale evening this is it. We will definitely go back!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMSouthern CharmMy wife is an excellent chef & often I find myself not as impressed as I was at the Old Village Post House. Our server was educated on every aspect of the meal when we had specific questions. The wine we ordered was served at the proper temperature. I could go on but overall we were extremely pleased.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic OverallWe sat outside on the patio - which was quaint and quiet, had intimate lighting (small Christmas lights), greenery covering the walls, and just an overall romantic feel. We started with wine & their Hemingway cocktail, and the mussels for an appetizer. The mussels were to die for! After that, we had their Mahi Mahi dish and their Trout entree. Both were amazing! The perfect ratio of sweet and salty. We finished our meal with their dessert special - chocolate custard with an oreo crust and some coffee! Service was great - hospitable, thorough, but not overbearing. All-in-all, and epic meal, in a beautiful neighborhood, and great service! We will be back!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a wonderful treatWe're fortunate to get a table outside on their courtyard patio. Had the "special" soft shell crabs. Always an enjoyable evening at this restaurant.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AM1st Time Won't Be Our LastFor our 10th wedding anniversary dinner, I chose the Post House because of the reviews I had read online. I reserved a table at 7pm with a note about our anniversary and wanting a intimate table for 2. When we arrived, we got exactly what I asked for. Our server was energetic, professional and friendly, with just the right of amount of attentions directed to our table, i.e. there when she needed to be, and not there when it was time for just my wife and I to enjoy our food and converse without interruption. The appetizers were excellent and well proportioned, local strawberry salad and beef carpaccio. The dinners were also excellent, hangar steak and sausage-stuffed quail. We enjoyed our A+ experience and will definitely return.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently high qualityConsistently high quality hospitality,service and food.
It's like walking into your friends home for a dining experience.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent. brunch was wonderful.excellent. brunch was wonderful. my potatoes were a little overcooked and oily, otherwise the brunch was great.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebrated mothers day SundayCelebrated mothers day Sunday brunch with friends and had a super experience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and settingThis was our first time at The Old Village Post House even though we live close by. The setting is gorgeous. The outside patio looks absolutely gorgeous, even though we sat inside. The food was awesome, serving size was perfect and the menu was all very tempting. The only thing I didn't like was my husband was still eating his meal and all other people's plates were being cleared and we were being asked about dessert. Definitely a rushed feeling, and clearing plates whilst other people are eating is rude, but other than that all was perfect, including the rest of the service.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA Reliable FavoriteWe're fortunate to live within easy walking distance of the Post House, a setting that's become a family favorite for celebrating special occasions as well as informally relaxing with friends and neighbors.
The food and service are consistently tremendous!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Find in Old NeighborhoodLove going here. Though Mother's Day Brunch was a fixed menu, food was prepared nicely and tasted fantastic. We've been here on many other occasions and have never been disappointed. Great bar too.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food, some service gapsWe went for brunch recently, a group of 6. Everything we ordered was absolutely delightful - my husband has been talking about the brioche French toast every day since, and my crab cakes eggs benedict were the best I've ever had. However, there were several missteps - wrong drink delivered, wrong side dish, sauce poured on when requested on side, maple syrup forgotten when asked for it after food was delivered. We just chalked it up to an "off" day for an otherwise kind, attentive server, but it was a little disappointing to have to keep interrupting our gathering with out-of-town family to try to make corrections or ask for things that were already requested. Will still return, as this was not our first experience here and we do love OVPH.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMQuaint and convenientThe service and ambience was very good. We had a very nice time, The salad was awesome, however my steak was not good-very chewy and difficult to eat, I have been before and it was delicious, so I will be back.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect EveningWe took out-of-town friends to the Old Village Post House on Saturday, May 5 and had a delightful dinner in a lovely atmosphere. The soft shell crab was done to perfection, and the wine selection varied and quite good. The bar tender found Canadian Club at the back of his top shelf, to my great delight. I have a hard time getting it in this area.
The noise level in the main dining room was much too noisy for me to be able to have any conversation with our friends. We moved to the bar, which I prefer anyway, and the noise level was still high, but at more tolerable. We still look forward to our next visit, and feel fortunate to have such a fine restaurant so near at hand.
Jon Walton5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMRomantic Old Village Post HouseThis past weekend, my husband and I had a wonderfully romantic table for two in the main dining room. The ambiance was romantic, but up-to-date...with fresh white bead-board walls, deep chocolate colored ceilings, pretty natural woven hanging light fixtures, and gorgeous floor to ceiling windows which looked out upon a charming, turn-of-the-century streetscape. The food was delicious - I had the vegetable plate, hubby had the flounder, and we shared a chocolate dessert over coffee. We never felt rushed. The service was great. And we will be back!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAlwaysAlways our first choice for dinner when we visit Charleston. No need to go downtown when this hidden gem is so close to Wild Dunes.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, service, nice ambianceFood was good, service was good, outdoor space very inviting and in a very quaint area.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently ExcellentBeen here over 20 times as we vacation at Wild Dunes. OVPH never disappoints. My hanger steak was excellent and the blue cheese sauce was perfect--not overwhelming and the portions were generous. My wife had the shrimp and grits, our favorite version in the area know for this dish. We had driven straight in from Atlanta and they were efficient with their service but we were not rushed. Just perfect.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent. Food was greatExcellent. Food was great and the service (Cubbage) was outstanding. The restaurant was very busy, but our table was ready when we arrived. The manager came by to check on us after the food was served to see if the meals were well prepared. A pleasant experience.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMLove at first bite!My husband and I made a last minute reservation for the Post House while visiting the Charleston area. Our adventures took longer than we anticipated and we wanted to dine somewhere near our hotel. Could not have picked a better place for our evening meal! Superior food, outstanding service, and lovely atmosphere made for a very pleasant evening. As a resident of the mid-west, my relationship with seafood was not at it's best. But after enjoying the incredibly fresh and well prepared local seafood fare offered, a love affair with seafood has blossomed, especially with oysters! Thank you for such a wonderful culinary experience!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful service. ExceptionalWonderful service. Exceptional food.

I have rarely enjoyed a meal as much as I enjoyed here. I arrived with a party of 6 only to find I had made my reservation for the following Sunday. The staff was incredible. They quickly accommodated our guests and proceeded to serve a fabulous meal. Major kudos to this staff and major thanks for taking the "egg" off my face!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food in a historic buildingWhat was once a hardware store when I was a child growing up on Pitt Street is now a beautiful restaurant. We celebrated a birthday on a Sunday evening, and it was a busy place. I had the hanger steak which was as tender as butter. Our server was attentive and we had a great time. Be sure to try the Pitt Street Breeze for a refreshing cocktail!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOur party of 4 thoroughlyOur party of 4 thoroughly enjoyed a fabulous meal. We raved about the shrimp and grits (best ever, according to our local expert) and I had a hangar steak with a blue chees sauce to die for. Though fully sated, we tried the lemon chess pie and chocolate tart, both of which were over the top wonderful. Either save room for dessert or just go for it! We also had lovely service, very profesional, not overly friendly, but engaging and helpful with recommendations. We're still talking about the entire experience! It was my second time in several years, and I'd go back in a heartbeat!
Lynne C., Sacramento, CA4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAs Good as Ever!We returned to the Post House after remembering a
delicious meal we had there years ago.
Making a reservation for 2 on Open Table was
easy. The atmosphere was great and the soup,
entrees and dessert were all fabulous. Our service was
terrific, albeit a little slow for an 8:30 pm reservation.
We will be back!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and service was excellent.Food and service was excellent. I had the flounder dish that was amazing.

A true trip into old low-country South. The service was attentive, but you never felt like they were overbearing, they just appeared whenever needed. Four of us dined and we all had wonderful meals. OVPI was my favorite restaurant in Charleston and we hit several top-rated ones. Absolutely loved their shrimp and grits.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAmbience is excellent--"TheAmbience is excellent--"The Old South" setting...always have a good experience here.
