    Upon arriving our hostess said because of our party was not there we would have to wait at the bar, even though there were numerous open tables available. The hostess knew we were upset by this and did nothing about it. To add insult to injury there was no bar tender. We were never blessed with his presence. The waitress was nice and well informed. My daughter had to chase her into the kitchen to get her attention. Once found she did clear up the issue. I ordered duck. Huge mistake. DO NOT ORDER the duck. Undercooked and rubbery. Lots and lots of choices of restaurants in Charleston area. Wonder how long this average restaurant will survive.

    We have dined at The Granary before and were a bit hesitant to do so again since our experiences have been hit or miss. Our most recent visit was no different. We selected several small plates to share and almost half of them came out cold. We sent one back since it was far from even tepid. The restaurant wasn't busy and there seemed no excuse for this. The gentleman who brought our "recook" (his words, not mine), item said that he would be back to see how things were and we never saw him again. The item was OK, but not great. Service was good, but all in, with tip, our "samplings" were over $80.00. We won't be rushing back there any time soon.

    Just a great place for great meal in Mt. Pleasant. Another reason to not go eat downtown in Charleston. They have a nice small plate menu, we enjoyed sharing the charcuterie plate first. This is a must do, the meat choices change and are made in house. Then the Bibb salad & quinoa salad were equally delicious with fresh vegetables & dressings. The entree menu also has many great choices, we decided on the hanger steak, smoked pok chop and side of pommels frites. The pork chop was fantastic, large, grilled right and had a nice smokey flavor. We really enjoyed our dinner and would recommend the Granary to others. We will definitely go back. Oh and you must have a Moscow mule, best drink ever.

    The Granary never disappoints. The menu is always being updated to feature seasonal produce so there's always something new to try, but i'm also happy to see the duck confit small plate has stayed on there from the beginning. It's a great place to either grab something quick, or settle in and have a three course meal. The draft beers are all local which is definitely a bonus, and the wine and cocktail list have something for everyone.

    The food at the Granary was pretty good. The Charcuterie was excellent, as were the pommes frites. I had the Cioppino for my entree, which turned out to be a bit rich/acidic for my tastes, but good overall. My fiancee had the short-rib which I tasted and was incredibly tender and delicious. The service was really what shined brightest, and our waiter was fantastic. Very friendly and knowledgeable. We will definitely return.

    Food was excellent and so was service. Hostess rushed us to our table as the group of six of us were gathering at bar. My complaint is that I had to give a credit card info over phone to hold a reservation for six. They were going to charge me if I cancelled within 24 hours. This group has dined monthly at every restaurant in charleston and have never had to do this to my knowledge.

    I recently took someone to the granary for their birthday. Every aspect of the night was great. I would highly recommend the pork belly that comes over grits and a fried eggs. I have been craving more ever since! Really enjoyed that they had a wonderful dessert list to choose from for a birthday treat! Highly recommend!

    Took my wife and another couple from out of town out to dinner here Friday night. Was a little Leary because of its location in a shopping center, but we decided to give it a shot. Food was absolutely fantastic. You could literally taste how fresh all the vegetables were. I had the cat fish which was delicious, and the others had steak, a flat bread pizza, and the wreck fish special. Everyone raves about their food. The service was great, as was the ambience. We'll definitely be going back again.

    The food was delicious and not disappointing. It was packed for brunch so I'm glad we had reservations. The french toast was the most popular item being ordered but it didn't look that amazing unless the the syrup was the key point. I had duck and waffles. The duck was juicy and the skin so crispy and fantastic. My husband had the huevos rancheros and it was delicious, couldn't taste much chicken but overall delcious flavor. We shared the truffle pomme frites and smoked ketchup which my husband ate and he never eats ketchup. He said it tasted like BBQ sauce. The place is very rustic and home like. 10.00 carafes of mimosas for brunch which is always a us.

    It was a great find. We started with the charcuterie plate which was a different and delicious choice as a starter. I had the pork chop which was probably the best I've had. It was moist and flavorful. My husband had the short ribs which were also very good. We finished with the banana bread, which is grilled banana bread drizzled with caramel and served with a scoop of caramel ice cream, and the coconut cake. Both were amazing. My husband had several gin and topic cocktails which were made with housemade tonic (the bartender came by to see how he liked them) and served with a slice of cucumber. He loved them. The waitstaff was impeccable - knowledgeable, attentive and served at exactly the right pace. We will definitely be back!

    Four of us who live in Mt. Pleasant ate here for the first, but certainly not the last time. The waiter was very knowledgeable and proud of the fresh farm to table offerings, which change often based on the season and availability. We shared the Charcuterie Plate of cured meats which was just the right size and wonderful. Everyone loved their entrees which were generous and creative. Between us we had the duck, the hanger steak, the short rib and the fish of the day which was local grouper. We were all eating off each others' plates because it was all soooo good!! Cannot review dessert as we did not order any, but the cocktail, wine and beer selection is good.

    While I'm a proponent of farm to table, I'm fatigued of the usual cuisine options (kale, beets, cauliflower iterations). The food is good, but again, nothing special. The service was friendly but we waited a considerable amount of time for entrees. Our server was apologetic and kept us updated of the wait and delay.

    We had a very nice time with very attentive service and great food. The ambience was quiet probably due to a slow evening. The farm to table approach of the restaurant is well executed. The flatbread we had was delicious. The chef varied the dish to our tastes with perfection. We selected two entrees that were perfectly prepared. One was duck two ways and the other was a braised short rib. We capped our meal off with a restaurant prepared chocolate pecan pie and local coffee, both quite enjoyable. We highly recommend this restaurant.

    We had been to this restaurant when it was owned by others and operated under a different name; it was a good place then for a quick, casual meal. Now operating as The Granary, we found the food to be excellent in taste and preparation. Service was very good and the hosts could not have been more accommodating. We are very glad that we went back to this location to try out the new restaurant and surely will find ourselves there again in the not too distant future.

    Had a terrific brunch here this last weekend with great service! The short rib hash was delicious. The only disappointment was the charcuterie. For a place that is supposed to be dedicated to this it was a tad weak. I appreciate that they are making their own rather than purchasing it for others but they will have to step it up if they are going to compete with others in the charleston area. Otherwise, a fabulous experience. The banana bread dessert is one of the best things ever!

    I wanted to try this place due to the outstanding reviews of the charcuterie, and the prices looked right. Overall impression is it tries to be like a downtown restaurant at a bargain, but it doesn't provide the quality of the food nor the service that a downtown spot could provide. Overall for the price paid, I think I could have did better putting that money toward a fancier plate. The stuff we had was good, but nothing that I can put a finger on and say it was amazing (Charcuterie included). Service was a bit lacking as we ran out of water a few times, and there was a mixup when our appetizer / entrees could come. I would eat there again, but only if I was in the area.

    We had very good dining experiences at the Granary four times before this last visit. The restaurant was so cold it felt like a meat locker and although the waiter was kind enough to turn up the AC temperature, it soon got cold again. The music was very loud and there was a big disconnect between the entree pricing (which we are more than willing to pay since the food is good) and the hard rock music. The restaurant itself was less than 1/2 full so our poor wait staff experience was totally unexcusable. We will not return until we hear that the service and ambiance has improved.

    We dined at the Granary the other evening as a party of four. I was looking forward to our meal, as I had enjoyed Brannon Florie's food at 17 N. previously. While dinner was pretty good, it did not live up to our expectations. Many dishes were extremely salty while others fell flat. We did really enjoy the charcuterie and cheese boards as well as the pork belly dish and clams. Service was pleasant, but very slow especially considering it was a Monday and the restaurant wasn't even half full. We will definitely give them another chance, but will probably wait awhile before doing so.
