    The Granary is a great place to go to fill that need to expand our culinary horizons. Few if any options on the menu are "normal". Just when you think you have found a menu item you think you might like the details change you mind. It truly is a cutting edge expression of the chefs expertise. All items where created to perfection, even the fried duck wings, yes duck. No hamburger on the menu.

    Booked date night as we had not tried the Granary yet. The interior was nice, dim lighting and a moderate noise level that allowed you to actually talk. The server was very knowledgeable about the resturants mission and menu. The menu is updated weekley so there's always a good chance you will get a great new selection. The wine list was good, menu had something for everyone. A little pricy for a neighborhood gem but worth the price. So we will go monthly instead of bi-Weekley. The only complaint I had was towards the end the service slowed. We waited an uncomfortable time for a desert menu and again for the check. But overall this will be on our list of go-to places.

    Excellent food, beverages, and service. The menu is not very large, but refined with a selection of dishes that compliment each other while providing a nice variety from land and sea. All of the food was delicious, including the Charcuterie as our shared appetizer, but it was our server who pushed the experience over the top. Cameron was well versed with the menu, and his explanations and recommendations along with his wit and timely attention made our visit to The Granary exceptional. We look forward to returning soon.

  • Great Food but Not Great Value

    Dined on 11/21/2014
    It's a great restaurant with an innovative menu but we've always felt the menu options were a bit overpriced for a restaurant in a strip mall. We like what they are doing but we can't justify going frequently because our bill is too expensive. We hope they continue to make delicious food but it will have to be on our infrequent restaurant list. You can find better value elsewhere especially considering Charleston has so many options!

    wonderful food and service, and we have been there at least six times. the staff pays great attention to the food allergy on the part of one member of our family, which cannot be said about every restaurant in Charleston. JJ is a very valuable ember of the team at The Granary. Just a setting in a shopping center but a really fine experience

    Went in with a group of 4. We ordered 4 small plates, charcuterie and a round of cocktails to start. Everything prepared perfectly. next we moved on to wine and entrees. I chose the short rib. It was prepared boneless over collards and grits. The shortrib itself was just a slightly bit dryer than what I expected but was overall delicious. I've never had better grits or collard greens in my life. The server (heat seeker) helped us decide on 2 bottles of wine to go with our meal. Everything was top notch. The only knock I would give to service is that he almost forgot our kale salad and did not explain the charcuterie board when it arrived. Overall I would highly reccomend.

  • Almost, But Not Quite Perfect...

    One of my favorite places to eat dinner is The Granary, but I had never been to brunch until this past Sunday. My husband and I invited another couple who had never been before, and they loved it, as well. While the food was tasty, the waffles were a bit cold and dry. Had it not been for the succulent toppings, I would have sent mine back. Yet one taste of the toppings had me convinced I couldn't have my plate taken away. My only suggestion is that more attention be paid to the waffles' temperature!

    My wife and I visited the Granary after several websites recommended it. We really enjoyed the food and the mixed drink my wife ordered was superb. Our waiter was really attentive. Overall, a great experience. Just one snag- we arrived for our Open Table reservation and asked the hostess if we could sit at one of the empty booths, but she--without looking--stated the booths were "reserved." We ate our dinner and, as we were leaving, noticed all of the booths were still empty. The table at which we sat was fine, but no one explained how our reservation did not "qualify" us for booth dining. If there is some limitation to Open Table reservations (such as we cannot get a booth), I would have liked to know that.

    All entrees well received...ribs, cioppino, hanger steak and catfish...better than expected. Portions do not over indulge, a plus. Bench wine by the glass good, but over priced at $12. This was first visit, parking readily available, mall off Long Point Rd, Mt P. Could actually have conversation across table.

    The Granary provided a wonderful experience for the celebration of our Wedding Anniversary. From their specialty cocktails (we enjoyed the Bourbon Float and Moscow Mule) to the Charcuterie Plate, Small Plate (especially enjoyed the Pork Belly on Grits topped with Fried Egg) and Entrees (my wife ordered the Fish Special and I the Smoked Porkchop), all the food was excellent. Our server was attentive, engaging and helpful in explains and offering recommendations. We enjoyed our dining experience at the Granary very much.

    Granary was recommended to us by a French person living in the neighborhood who especially liked their pate. We found the food to be hand-crafted, selections carefully thought out & appropriate for the season. The presentation was artful/colorful. The Duck dish was outstanding. Desserts excellent. We tried the Coconut Cake and Chocolate Pecan Pie.

    Had a group of 6 with reservations several nights ago. We were promptly seated & were greeted by our server. We ordered wine & cocktails that came immediately. Ordered a charcuterie plate & a cheese plate that we devoured---both were superb. Then placed our main course order----and waited & waited---one hour for those dishes to arrive. We do not blame the server for this problem as she kept coming back to the table to let us know that the orders would be coming out soon. The kitchen must have been overwhelmed that evening. It was a Thurs.??? Bottom line, the food (once we got it) was excellent. Did they hold our orders to get us to order more wine & cocktails$$$ if that was the case, they succeeded.

    I dined here during restaurant week. I am usually a little leery about trying a new place during restaurant week because it seems as if restaurants don't really serve up their top dishes on the abbreviated menu. This was it the case with The Granery. Everything we had -- from the charcuterie, the scallops, the duck, the drinks and desert --- was fantastic. The service was great as well. This is definitely on my top 5 list.

  • Outstanding food at The Granary
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/13/2014
    Went on a Saturday for dinner during restaurant week. The food was outstanding. I had the fried rice with pork cheeks for my first course. The balance of the flavors on the plate was almost perfect. The large cuts of pork cheeks was done in a sous vide, so it came out not very chewy nor tough. My second course was smoked duck with the turnip puree. Duck was cooked perfect, not too greasy as duck tends to be. Finally for dessert I had the banana bread with a scoop of bourbon ice cream. This really sealed the deal for me. Being restaurant week, my entrees were not part of the regular menu. Hopefully they make it so.

    My wife had lunch here several months ago and loved it; this was my first time (dinner), and I loved it. The service was great; the waiter was professional (none of that kneeling at table-side and addressing us as "guys"). He was friendly, considerate, and knew the menu. The wine was excellent, but we felt the selection of vodka was limited (did not have Stolies or Absolute (probably misspelled by me). The food of course made up for that many times over. The items on the menu were creative and it was difficult to select "the one." My wife ordered the seafood and I had the brisket - both were outstanding! I will say it seemed a little over-priced; however I suspect we will continue to eat there because it is one of the very best!!!

    Rarely do you expect to find world class cuisine in a shopping center. The Granary is one of those rare finds. Excellent use of local ingredients, in house preparation of all sauces, and delightful combinations. The dining room is spacious with wonderful windows allowing plenty of natural light. Service was cheerful and prompt. For a restaurant open only a few months, go soon as it is going to be famous and crowded.

    Upon arrival, we were told that we could "wait at the bar" until our table was ready. Unfortunately, there's not a real bar and we never had anybody ask us what we wanted to drink. Thankfully, we were only waiting for about 10 minutes at this awkward raised "community table" toward the front of the restaurant. The dining isn't exactly private as you are often very close to the couple or table near you. Service was excellent and our food for restaurant week was very good. I do however wish that my "pairings" were actually full pours. A 1/3 of a beer isn't ideal for the thirsty folks who order the Charcuterie appetizer full of cured meats.

    The food and service was excellent. We went during restaurant week but ordered off the regular menu. Our only complaint is the seating arrangements for a couple. It is the typical long sofa type seat along the wall lined with little tables side by side. You are so close that you literally rub elbows with your neighbor. Also it makes it difficult to have a conversation. You can hear what every one next to you is saying ( even two tables down ) and they can surely hear you . While we were there several diners when shown to these tables asked to be moved but were very politely refused.

    The restaurant is obviously trying had to achieve a special character, but it comes off as fairly routine--borrowing menu and presentation ideas from here and there. The menu, the food, the drinks, and the service are all acceptable, and the exceptionally high noise level seems to be by design, but nothing is truly distinctive. There seems to be a pretty energetic clientele, and so perhaps it will all come together soon.
