    Virginia’s food is always consistently good. We have eaten here over the last 20 years when we come to town. We both ordered the veggie plate. The Mac n cheese is to die for. Grits, excellent. Collards, some of the best. I ordered a side of grilled shrimp for some protein and hubby ordered wings, both were excellent. Husband also ordered red rice x2 because it’s so good. Caleb was our server and he was wonderful. I bet he refilled our tea 5 times, because it’s so good also. Hostess was very nice. We don’t have a single complaint. If you choose not to go, you’re missing out!

    My husband and I went to dinner with another couple. Upon two of us being seated, our server didn’t introduce himself to us. Both tables to our right who were seated after us were being served. At this point still no server(no water, no cocktails.) I had to ask the hostess who our server was. The restaurant was extremely noisy as there was a party of 8-9 young men behind us who should have been asked to quiet down. They were not. Food was good but certainly not what one would expect for the caliber of such a restaurant.

    Great location, though you would think the setting would be loud, it still feels intimate. As first time guests we really appreciated a complimentary hummus brought to the table. The prosciutto and burrata was out of this world. Our waiter was phenomenal, not a single complaint.

    Absolutely phenomenal dining experience. Everything was lovely. The scallops were prepared in the most flavorful way; best I’ve ever had. Coconut cake is a must! Service (Dana) was very attentive, but in a subtle way. This was one of the highlights of our yearly trip to Charleston!

As a part of South Carolina's Lowcountry, James Island offers a number of spots where you can enjoy shrimp and grits, crab soup or Lowcountry boil, which is a steam pot stuffed with shrimp, sausage and corn.
