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.
Food was absolutely delicious !! Wait staff were a little odd and the place was FREEZING ! Everyone had their jackets on but we will definitely still come back for the food .
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.
BEST SHE CRAB SOUP IN MY ENTIRE LIFE!!!!!!!!
Appreciate to heartful Staff at the restaurant. She always gave us nice care for our table, especially for our child who is 1.5 years old. It was so warm and sweet. Food and wine was quite delicious! We had really wonderful night at there.
Thank you very much!! We are surely going to be back again soon.
Absolutely beautiful property & an overall exceptional experience. Our server was very knowledgeable, kind, and gave us excellent recommendations. Our meal was delicious & we look forward to visiting again soon!
Dinner was absolutely fantastic! First time in a while that we’ve been out to eat and felt the cost was worth the experience. Server was very attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. Thank you for a great night out!!
Simply a wonderful restaurant that has yet to be discovered by the masses.
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Middleton Place. Service was very friendly, prompt and accommodating. Food was excellent!
Ryan our waiter was excellent. The food was delicious.
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.
This is our favorite restaurant for date night. The food, service and overall ambiance has never disappointed.
Perfect getaway for a date night.
Limited menu changed seasonally but very good food prepared in surprising and delicious manner. The ambiance is subdued and elegant in a beautiful setting on the grounds of Middleton Plantation. Good place for a special evening out.
It was nice and a very comfortable atmosphere.
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 were greeted and taken to our table before our reservation time and given such a wonderful experience would come here for dinner again the food was beyond what I expected it to be
Service was excellent and the food was fantastic. Would highly recommend it
Had to keep my coat on through dinner. They were out of a few things on the menu. We come here often, but I was disappointed this time. Will try again some other time. Online menu is outdated!
We love to dine at Middleton! It’s nice to stroll around the grounds then enjoy a delicious dinner. Food and service has always been consistent.
Wine tasting along with dinner, great service and a beautiful evening.
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.
Absolutely amazing like always!!
Food was great, especially the Pork Osso Bucco. Our server recommended this when I was having trouble deciding and it did not disappoint!
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.
Tucked away gem in West Ashley out at Middleton Place. Exceptional views, quaint restaurant, delicious food and great ambiance. We love this place!
Just an amazing place for history, scenery, and food. Our waiter Rob was fantastic and entergetic. We will be back for sure.
The menu has become too limited.... Appetizer selection is almost non existent
My wife and I celebrated 10 years of marriage and ate dinner at Middleton Place Restaurant. The food, service, and experience were excellent!
Middleton Place is a beautiful place to enjoy a wonderful meal while helping support a historical site.
Middleton Restaurant has consistently been at the top of my list of favorite restaurants in Charleston for the past 6 years. They are so underrated, never disappoint. Every time someone comes to visit me, I take them to Middleton. The shrimp and grits is the best I've ever had.
We always enjoy our experience at Middleton. The halibut was fantastic and this is the first time in my life that I enjoyed brussel sprouts. The gardens are always breathtaking. Do yourself a favor and check Middleton out.
Worth the drive. The food was great. The server Stephen was knowable and very efficient.
Wine was great. Can’t wait to go back.
Wonderful! We ate twice last weekend (dinner).
We spent our first anniversary here and I’ll always remember it forever! The grounds were so stunning and the food was spectacular. Everything was just amazing and like from a movie!
Great meal and enjoyed the night with family from out of town
We have been here numerous times. All previous experiences have been very good. This was our least favorite experience. It was Restaurant Week and I called before coming to see if they were participating and was told yes and we verified online. When we arrived they told us they weren't. We probably would have gone anyway, but it still didn't feel right.
There was only one waitress and she served all three tables that were there, which I can understand since I am a business owner, but they seated all three tables adjoining, which made it kind of awkward for conversations because we were all so close together.
It was a special birthday for my wife so they brought us a complimentary glass of champagne. But since we don't imbibe, it was only a nice gesture. Dessert, which would have come with the Restaurant Week meal, would have been a better fit for us.
I guess every restaurant is entitled to a down night, so I'm sure we will return eventually,
