    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.

    What an amazing Resturant close to Wild Dunes where we are staying on vacation. Food and Service was top shelf. Resturant is located in a neighborhood that is a 2 minute walk to water with great views of Charleston. We liked it so much we are going back tonight and hope to sit outside.

    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.

    I brought my new girlfriend to the Old Village Post House because I wanted to spoil her on our first "date night". We had a great Saturday evening in July, and enjoyed everything about the restaurant. Just before dessert, I surprised her with a gift of emerald earrings and a matching emerald necklace. It was a memorable evening, and we will definitely return.

    Amazing date night location. Had a perfect table in the corner. Wait staff made great suggestions. We started with mussels and continued with the flounder and veg plate. All cooked perfectly. Finished with ice cream sundae and a trifle. Couldn't ask for a better experience

    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.

    The Old Village Post House was recommended by a homeowner nearby and are we ever glad we decided to try their brunch. One of the very best meals we have had in Charleston area (Mount Pleasant). Staff was super and the setting and surrounding homes are remarkable. We only tried brunch but I would definitely go back for any meal. Our French Toast and omelet meals were done to perfection...nothing else to say!

    Combined pleasure with business and received many recommendations for great dining in Charleston. Several friends supplied lists and we honed in on same restaurants appearing on multiple lists. The group that owns Old Village Post House Inn were noted on several lists so we decided to try it since it was near Charleston Harbor Resort where we stayed for 4 nights. We ate at two restaurants owned by a different restaurant group in Charleston for a lunch and dinner and still preferred and praised the exquisite food, charming setting and informed/professional service of the Old Village Post House Inn. A MUST try!

    Ambience is very nice. Visited with old friends and it was quiet so conversation was easy. Tuna was recommended as excellent for appetizer and was tasteless. There are no entrees that are heart healthy. The beet salad was excellent. 2 of the 4 meals were incorrect with the wrong meat or no meat placed as ordered. For living in Charleston and the many options available, I will not be back there anytime in the near future. This was a disappointment since previous experiences were good

    My husband and I went to the Old Village Post House to celebrate my second full year of teaching. It definitely did not disappoint! We somehow managed to get the upstairs room by ourselves. It was nice and quiet, and the food was very good. When we left the building, we went through the downstairs- the noise level jumped from 'quiet' to 'energetic'. The only downside was that the truffle fries were not as good as the last time we went- but they were still very good. Service was great.
