Very reasonably priced dinner option. Food was great and the service was fantastic. The only detraction was that they had the door open in the kitchen and it was cooler at my table near the kitchen. Would definitely go again when in Charleston.

Reservation was on a Sunday evening so very few customers. Ambience was fine, nothing spectacular or special. Food was fine, again nothing spectacular....good cooking rather than an a chef's delight. Because there were not many people in the restaurant, the noise level was low, which was nice... in order for us to visit with friends.

Was absolutely lovely, the service was top notch. Our server Stephanie was phenomenal. Being the first time me and my date had met and first time either of us had been to Graze, we were talking a lot and also having a hard time picking our entrée off the menu because everything sounded so amazing. Stephanie was patient and helpful. She recommended the scallops and pork belly with cream corn risotto and pesto. It was phenomenal. Me and my date chatted among our conversation we talked about how amazing the food was and traded bites of our meal, he ordered the chicken and waffles which came highly recommended by my roommate from her first visit to graze. We talked until we were the last people in the entire Restaurant besides the manager and the chef. We were there after close and they never asked us to leave or rushed us. Was a great first experience, I hope to go back as often as possible in the future.

We took my sister-in law out for dinner on a Tuesday. We had no trouble getting in, though the restaurant was almost full. The someone hit a transformer and lights went completely out just after our orders were taken, but the friendly staff provided candles and our cellphones provided brighter light when needed. We still got our food cooked perfectly and on time. The fish and buffalo shrimp tacos and included house salad were a delicious bargain at $12. I was still able to use my credit card and the management handled a tough situation without missing a beat. The candlelight ambiance was special, and the service was great as usual. Perhaps they should do more candlelight dinners just for fun.

We consider it a neighborhood favorite. As a matter of a fact when we walked in we saw many of our neighbors. It is a spot that we also call for takeout when we want to eat at home. Always reliable.

Casual neighborhood place in a strip shopping center serving excellent food at reasonable prices. We had fried chicken livers and shrimp and grits for brunch. Both were very tasty and well-seasoned. Server was cheerful, knowledgeable and attentive. Decor was basic but very comfortable- lots of space between tables, very quiet (which we appreciated).

Very enjoyable meal and great value.

We had a very unique situation, in that we were driving to Charleston from Virginia, got caught in all kinds of traffic on I-95 South (Wednesday) and had to call a couple of times to push back our reservation. Finally, Karen (I believe) phoned us in the car and asked if we were still coming. We were about a mile away (lost) and we said yes. She guided us in, and it became apparent when we got there that she had kept the place open to accommodate us (she insisted no, but we were the only people in the restaurant at that late point). The service was great, the food wonderful, and her thoughtfulness made 4 very very tired, road-weary travelers feel welcome and special. We were there for a college basketball tournament, and we told as many people following the team as possible to go there. The next time we're in Charleston, we will be back and we'll bring people with us. A friend who lives in Goose Creek told us we'd enjoy it, and he was absolutely right. Glad we took his advice.

Our waitress tried very hard to make up for watered down liquor. Instead of a deep rich caramel color the liquor was light brown. My Manhattan was weak. Perhaps the ice had been in the set up glasses too long. I’m not sure what caused the problem. My steak was excellent and every effort was made to deliver an exceptional meal.

Great reviews.... walked in..very disorganized and loud. Ordered two appetizers and two of their well reviewed tacos. French fires ordered were a soggy oily mess...sent back nad merely put back in the fryer and served...still poor. Soup tasteless.....tacos...one short rib taco was good...the othe pulle or, was not. Overall...not great quality and certainly not worth a return trip . Other options to investigate vs another round here.... sorry.... we were looking forward to this dinner and were disappointed.

Four out of the 5 entrees were good. The chicken and waffles was so soaked in maple syrup that the waffle was inedible and the chicken barely. The service at best was only mediocre; even when told that it was a birthday, no notice was taken. Service person mispronounced wine and menu items. Was very slow. Would return only under different circumstances.

We were out of towners from the OBX of NC in town for meetings regarding our Spring 2018 wedding at Isle of Palms.
We found this gem by accident and as a couple of foodies who travel domestic and international quite frequently, we can honestly say the starters and main courses we had were top 5 for us. It was as good if not better than Blue Dog in Lake Charles, LA, a small pub in Galway, Ireland and La Colombe in Cape Town.
Staff and GM were approachable and friendly.
We will make our way back to Graze in April while in town for our wedding.
Do yourself a favor and go to Graze.
PS: the vodka sauce mussels and the jalapeño/cilantro margarita were both Awesome!

We were in the Charleston/Mt Pleasant area for a vacation. We saw the reviews on another site and decided to give it a try. It was fabulous food! The fries we had as an appetizer were the best we ever had. It was so good the first time, we came again.

We began with some cocktails, and the bartender made excellent dirty martinis. Fortunately these were shaken, cold, and not skimpy proportions like some restaurants. We always have excellent food at Graze. This night I had the scallops with risotto, which was delicious. Scallops grilled perfectly and a generous portion of creamy risotto. My husband always loves his perfectly cooked buffalo shrimp tacos. Our friend had fried pork chops with macaroni and cheese that he said were both wonderful and he had enough for take home as well. We will definitely return!

We were absolutely pleased with our decision to eat here while vacationing in Charleston. Food was delicious, and imaginative. Varied, and inspired menu. Best service we've encountered in some time. Much better value and choices after dining the night before at Charleston Harbor Fish House. No wonder it's ranked Number #1 in Mt. Pleasant. As far as we're concerned, Number #1 in Charleston.

The food was very good, but from the moment we sat down I felt like the three of us were being hurried through our service, by "instantly" asking what we wanted to order before we had a chance to read the menu, pouring full glasses of wine before it was tasted and continuing to fill our glasses to empty the bottle without asking if we cared for more, trying to clear off plates that were still being enjoyed, and just generally making us feel like we were taking up space. The food was outstanding and we wanted to be able to enjoy it!! I didn't bother asking for the dessert menu because I felt like they wanted our table more than they wanted our business. The kitchen knows what it's doing--the front of the house needs work.

As with most restaurants in our great city of Charleston, the food is superb. My only complaint would be that I would like to see an actual bartender on Sunday brunch days. The wait staff makes the alcoholic beverages, and it leaves a lot to be desired. I understand the added expense of a bartender, but if you're set on a nice mojito to kick the day off, it should be made well. Either that or don't offer bar drinks for brunch.
