    The food was good, but the service was very, very, very slow. Our food arrived hot, but we had told the server that we wanted to get the check and get home...and it was another 30 minutes to get the check and pay.

    We stayed at the Inn and walked over for our dinner reservation on Valentine’s Day. The service was wonderful and the food was exceptional. We enjoyed the classic she-crab soup - much more crab meat than many downtown restaurants. Also had the scallops as an appetizer, and they were perfectly cooked. My husband had the bone-in tenderloin from the specials menu; easily one of the best and most flavorful steaks I have had. I enjoyed the pasta with rabbit, another special. We shared the chocolate creme brûlée for dinner, and it was the perfect way to end our meal. This will become one of our go-to places. Well worth the drive!

    The Plantation itself is a magical space and the food was top notch. The scallops were the best I’ve ever had as was the chicken. I would pass on the she-crab soup next time. We had the sparkling Malbec with our dinner and it was also very good. We have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. The service is always fabulous as well. Truly an experience to remember each visit.

    My wife and I visit the restaurant quite frequently and this time everything was wrong. It is usaually a wonderful experience. Hanger steak was average, service was confused, time waiting for anything was longer than normal. Waiter was good and spirited but obviously had a bigger party to attend to. Very unfortunate evening.

    We brought an out of town friend with us for New Year’s Eve dinner and we all loved it! The food choices were great and everyone’s entire meal was memorable. I had the potato augratin to start but it had so much crab that the potatoes were an afterthought. Delicious! My sautéed Grouper was amazing! The Hangar Steak my son ordered was wonderful he said. My husband and friend both had the Duck Confit pot pie and drooled over it.

    We’ve been enjoying the Middleton Inn & Restaurant for almost 10 years. We come not just to celebrate special occasions but to enjoy a relaxing evening of fabulous food (the best she crab soup in Charleston) , wonderful atmosphere & to be surrounded by the beautiful gardens. Such peace is discovered when you’re here! It will always hold a special place in our hearts for years to come.

    The food was good but nothing extraordinary. The ambiance is minimalist in decor but we went at night and I think the beauty of the gardens would make up for that during the day. It was freezing inside though. The few guests who were there all had on jackets yet the heat was not turned up. Definitely a quiet space for a good dinner but not a place I feel I need to return.

    The staff at Middleton Place Restaurant is very attentive to their guests. The food is prepared very well by the kitchen, coming out in a very short time-frame when ordered. At night when we drove in the dark, the road into the restaurant area is marked with outdoor torches on poles so you know in that darkness where to head for. Thanks for your high standards!

    We visit often. We were sat at two top in back corner. We have been sat here in the past and had a poor experience then as well. I guess this table is easily forgotten about. Neither time were we served bread when sitting at that table. We ordered as soon as we were handed the menus with our drink order. It took 45 min for our meal to be served and overall, we were there for 90 minutes due to the slow service. The menu states the pork shank was served with rainbow carrots and Napa cabbage. This is a change from when this fall menu originally came out. The meal was not served as described on the menu. It came with shredded bagged cabbage and carrot mix which filled the entire dish with water. It drowned the polenta. I removed the bagged salad mix from the dish and poured the skillet out in the plate to remove as much water as possible.

    My husband and I had our wedding ceremony at the Butterfly Lakes on Oct. 31, 2018. When arriving to dinner it was a beautiful night drive with lit torches to lead the way to the restaurant. We had an 8:30 reservation in the event it would be more private. The staff was very knowledgeable about the fall season menu, kind, and courteous. When we explained the pastry tray we received delivered to our room and how it was adorned with marshmallow ghost, we learned it was the chef of the Middleton Inn Restaurant whom made them. We did not meet her but wish to thank her. We could not see the water at night, but the lit moss trees and twinkle lights that touched on many outdoors made it beautiful.
