Great food across the board and wonderful service. My wife and I had a ahi tuna appetizer, lobster and sturgeon entrees with a cherry ice cream/waffle dessert. The wine list was above average. Had a great meal and will return.

Was one of the best meals I ever had. Every course was amazing and we were blown away every time. The servers were very friendly and even threw in some bonus courses. I am already trying to come up with an excuse to travel to Charleston so I can go again. Loved this place.

We were abruptly greeted at the door by the maitre ‘d, who was overly concerned with where our children were going to sit and where we were going to put the stroller. He scolded me about how I should have called to tell them we would have a stroller, even though when I made the reservation I included in the notes that we would have 2 children with us.
All of this took about 10 mins before he finally, and reluctantly seated us.
Thankfully that was the end of our bad experience, from there the staff was amazing, as was the food.

Our kids (2 & 6 months) hardly made a peep, in fact several other diners seated near us came over to comment on how well behaved and quiet they both were.

Unfortunately, I’m not sure we would come back here the next time we are in Charleston. The food was very good but the lack of respect and understanding by the maitre ‘d definitely left a bad taste in our mouths.

One of our favorites while visiting Charleston. Great ambiance that comes with great service. Wine list is extensive and provides a really good variety for any taste. Food is well prepared, but serving size is not overly large (which is good). Recommend it highly.

The Grill is still the best restaurant in Charleston. I hesitate to say this only because I don't want it to become so popular and crowded I can't get in when I want to. There is no better food, service and ambience in the area. There are awards and such but they seem to be based on advertising companies great work, not so much on actual performance. Tourists may be happy with that, but locals want the real thing. This is the real thing.

We were so impressed with this restaurant from the moment we entered. The entire staff is friendly without being pretentious. They appear to genuinely care. Service was perfect. The food was amazing especially the crab cake appetizer. I had the scallops and my husband had the filet. Both were cooked perfectly. We wish we lived closer as this is our new favorite restaurant.

It was my second dinner in this special restaurant in a week and it was great to sample other delicious options with the same excellent service. Staff were attentive and not intrusive. This time I had a creamy sunchoke soup followed by an Indian curried fish combination. Apparently this restaurant always has live jazz music and it mostly provided a nice background but occasionally became a little loud for ease of conversation.

It was an amazing evening after a full day of travel. There was a jazz quartet at a comfortable volume. The dining room was beautiful and the service was attentive. The meal was exceptional! We had octopus and crab cake appetizers. The main course sturgeon was moist and tasty and the samples I had of the scallop main were also perfect. We hope to eat here again during this visit to Charleston.

They made our anniversary such a special night. They went out of their way to show that it was important to them that we had chosen to spend our anniversary there. We got a prime seat by the live jazz that was honestly at the perfect volume. The food was superb and the wine was divine. Would highly recommend.

Atmosphere was excellent, service was superb. The food was too salty, from the bread all the way through to the dessert. We had the crab appetizer and the crab was excellent but the sauce was so salty I couldn’t eat it. The red snapper was excellent but the sauces were too salty. The key lime cheesecake had salt on top with the pineapple. We paid too much for all that salt.

We celebrated our babymoon in Charleston and had a a lovely dinner at the Charleston Grill. We did the tasting menu and they made sure my food was
pregnancy friendly. It was so nice to have a elegant
meal without worrying about ingredients. The service and ambiance were wonderful. Plus, they had an alcohol-free wine, that made for a happy mom-to-be.

Celebrated my 5 week anniversary to my smoking hot girlfriend. Ate a whole mess of stone crabs. Washed it down with a bucket full of Budweiser’s. Enjoyed the jazz (pronounces “yazz”) music. The Charleston Grill is a nice change of pace from our usual favorite restaurant, the Red Lobster. A+ dinner.
