    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.

    My guest and I both ordered the cioppino which was described on the menu as having blue crab, shrimp, clams and mussels. While most of the ingredients were distinguishable, I was disappointed not to find any crab in the dish. Overall it was flavorful, just not as described on the menu.

    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.

    This place made me wish my palate was more educated. Great staff - we ordered 3 or 4 small plates and instead of just dumping it all on us at once they spaced it out in courses. Very crowded in a good way. My wife and I thought it was a great place for couples. We will return!

    Really no need to run to downtown Charleston for great food and drink. The Granary is just a brilliant combination of good food and drink. The service is perfect -- you won't be disappointed in the restaurant. Make sure you have a Moscow Mule -- made with their homemade ginger beer. We love it!

    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.

    Restaurant name is misleading. Probably a great choice for a meat eater but no so much for those who expect the grain rather than the animal it feeds. Fathers Day brunch was crowded, noisy, and definitely for the meat lover. The flatbread (sold out anyway) looked good except for the "bacon made from the jowly piece of the pig's head!" (as described by the server). Eventually Huevos Rancheros - minus the chicken - turned out to be an excellent choice; spicy without being overpowering. Brunch time prices are affordable; especially the drink menu ($6 for a champagne cocktail; $3 for domestic bottled beer). It is very jolly but not a place for a romantic tryst - very loud! Service slow at first (25 mins wait) but improved.

    We ate at the restaurant shortly after it opened and we were very impressed with the food, menu and service. Not so on Father's Day. Perhaps they were overwhelmed with the crowd, but they were out of two brunch menu items, and we were there when they opened. So why have them on the menu if you don't have them? We had to order them to find out they were not available. It took 45 minutes to get our meal: the eggs were over cooked, the French toast and waffles were so cold that the butter wouldn't melt on them, and one meal was short one egg. We had high hopes for this restaurant. The Long Point neighborhood could use a good restaurant.

    This is a fairly new restaurant, and some of the servers need training. Two of us went to dinner and were shown to a table for two situated at the end of a row of tables for two. We asked to sit at another of the unoccupied two tops, but the hostess refused our request, saying, "We might have to push tables together if a bigger party comes in, so we can't let you sit there." We were obviously less important than three or more customers. We ordered an appetizer to share. It arrived without utensils to eat it with or a second small plate to facilitate sharing. We had to stop a waitperson to ask for these. Drinks and food were slow to arrive. The food was excellent and imaginative. We would try The Granary again just for the food.

    This was my second time at The Granary. And I think it just keeps getting better and better. Drinks are really good and interesting. Fried oysters were amazing. Pork Belly appetizer was so tasty and cooked crispy and chewy. I ordered the pork chop with farro and greens and it was so delicious, I didn't want to stop eating it. I'm so happy there's a nice restaurant in this area of Mt Pleasant. It's one I would like to make a regular stopping place for me and my husband. Loved it!
