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 Online menu is outdated!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).
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,
Great food and service. Beautiful views of the gardens.
We enjoyed our dinner. The view is nice over the gardens of Middleton, with lots of blooming flowers. The menu is somewhat limited, but the items are local and imaginative without being fussy.The she-crab soup is excellent. My husband had a brined pork chop with field peas that was superb! If you are staying at Middleton Place Inn, it's a lovely walk to the restaurant. Bring a flashlight to get home-the walks are lit but there are dark spots. Plus you can "shine" for alligators eyes in the lagoon.
We come here every year to celebrate our wedding anniversary and have always had amazing food, amazing service and a romantic atmosphere!
Our favorite date night restaurant for great food, service and beautiful garden views.
I typically make my reviews based on the service and entree, but It would be so unfortunate if I did so in this case. This is not to say that my Grouper entree wasn’t delicious with various roots and precisely cooked eggplant, because it was truly delicious. But for me...what stole the show was the Chef’s Soup Special, which was a hearty beef and ginger infused stew with lamb bacon. Oh My God. This was an incredibly awesome stew that left me wanting more, but it was so filling that I could not possibly eat more.
Please email me when this stew returns to your menu or Special for the evening, and I will come running.
As always Middleton Place Restaurant was wonderful and after dinner we strolled the grounds and observed the wildlife including an eagle, alligators, egrets, and a peacock.
Delicious and creative. Lovely staff were exceptionally thoughtful. Cozy in a beautiful setting.
Love! Love! Love this pace! The food is amazing. I can’t believe I’ve lived 10 minutes away for the past year and have never gone for dinner.
We enjoyed everything about the atmosphere and the outside surroundings. The only critique I would have
would be the taste of the creamed corn that went with the fried chicken meal. I though that I would of like, but next time I would pass on that particular side. I would like to have options for sides next time. I don't know if you provide that because I didn't ask. Over all we enjoyed celebrating my parents 55th wedding anniversary.
We celebrated our wedding anniversary with a quiet dinner here. My wife had she crab soup and I had gumbo. Both were delicious. When my wife ordered the fried chicken, our waiter, Ryan, asked for her choice of white or dark meat. A nice touch. The lamb burger was calling my name and I was disappointed. Two patties on a brioche bun were over salted and almost well done. The only side was fresh greens. We skipped dessert.
The cocktails were good. It was a Monday night and we almost had the place to ourselves. We'll be back when we want to be alone. Interesting to note that there was no sales tax added to the bill because all profits go to the Middleton Place Foundation.
Loved the overall Historical ambiance of the Plantation and surroundings. The atmosphere was great but the food was a little disappointing for the costs. We had the "special" Pan Seared Grooper with ?"soupy" mixed vegetables and the Pork Chop with field peas. More like a meat and three as opposed to a "Chef" prepared meal! Appetizer (would be nice to have more of the Parmesan Crackers), Salad and Desert was OK but nothing special. Would recommend one time visit but would not go back "for the food".
Excellent food and service! The dining room is open with natural light and a stunning view of historic Middleton place! We will definitely be coming back!
Very pleasant setting, set professionally yet with a casual ambiance. Very fresh, local foods served creatively with an attentive service. Very relaxing atmosphere that we enjoyed appreciatively.
Delicious and wonderful atmosphere. Desserts were especially divine. Service was impeccable.
Amazing views, attentive and knowledgeable waitstaff, creative & delicious menu. A favorite date spot!
Took my parents here who were visiting from India. They have never experienced anything like it before especially on a plantation
Great service! We were able to enjoy our friends and some yummy food. The steaks didn't come out at we had ordered but they were very quick to fix it for us, super service!
Love the beautiful atmosphere and friendly staff, steak was a tad over cooked, but still 5 stars!
I really enjoyed my meals here. I stayed at the Inn nextdoor and walked over for lunch and dinner twice. Everything was amazing and service was exceptional.
Could not be more pleased with our experience. It made celebrating my Birthday and our friends return from deployment so memorable.
Wine and dinner were Amazing.
We will definitely be back.
