181 Palmer is the restaurant at Trident Tech's Culinary Institute downtown. The food and service are provided by the students pursuing a career in the culinary arts. We were pleased with the menu choices and the food was nicely prepared. Opted not to have any wine for lunch although it was available. The cappucino was ok, it needed to be a bit stronger. But the fish of the day was this delicious grouper, and a surprisingly nice portion for lunch. The student who waited on our table was very accomodating and did her best to answer our questions. Overall, it's a great place to have an above average lunch at a reasonable price ($15 per person) with good service to boot.

We recently brought our residents from an assisted living community to eat at your lovely restaurant. This was our second time there and both times went perfectly. Lunch outings can sometimes be challenging but the staff/students were very accomadating and welcomed our large group with smiles and friendly service. The food was amazing and our residents ate very well which isn't always the case. Your budget friendly restaurant also offers our residents the opportunity to participate in a fine dining experience that may not otherwise be affordable. Thank you for making this occasion wonderful for our residents and stress free for myself and my Activities Director.

Fantastic dining experience
Nice selections to choose from for each of the three entrees. Server was knowledgeable on ingredients of each dish when questions were asked. Each dish was beautifully presented and photo worthy. Pleasant dining experience where our party could converse and had the option of viewing the food preparation in the kitchen.

Our meal at 181 Palmer was absolutely outstanding. The Quail main course was the best Quail dish I have ever eaten. The extra chocolate treats at the end were amazing.
Thank you all for a memorable meal.

Enjoyed another fine lunch
Enjoyed another fine lunch at your facility. Wanted to give particular kudos to the chef for preparing the Crispy Confit of Heritage Pork. I love pork normally, but this was one pork dish that literally blew my mind (and tastebuds) in regards to richness, simple preparation and nice selection of companion side dishes. Thank you for yet another wonderful dining experience!

Special Dining in Charleston SC
In the lovely dining/classroom setting of the restaurant at the Charleston Culinary Institute, you will have a fine gourmet dining experience.
Meals are prepared and served by students learning the trade and the overall results are first rate. Sure there is an occasional mix up or the server mispronounces an ingredient, but that is part of their learning experience and I've had worse occurrences at established restaurants.
One chooses between four appetizers, four entree and four dessert choices and the menus can be viewed beforehand on line. I have never been disappointed. For my money it is the best deal in Charleston. Lunch only. Reservations are necessary. No alcohol is served.
