The lush Peninsula Grill Courtyard is one of the Charleston's true hidden gems and the most romantic al fresco dining setting in the city.

She crab soup, sea scallops, and duck breast were all delicious! Returned a couple hours later to enjoy a slice of the coconut cake outside. The outdoor space is lovely, with beautiful gas lights, greenery, and the sound of water trickling in the background - very romantic and the perfect way to wrap up our evening!
My favorite restaurant I've been to yet. Supurb service and food selection.
Excellent in every way
The coconut cake is awesome. So is the filet. Our waiter was very attentive and helpful. I only wish they could do something about the noise level.
The best fine dining experiance in Charleston.
Food was exceptionally good; wait staff friendly and competent. Dining is associated with a large downtown hotel. Convenient location for vacationers. But the room lacks any real charm.
Definitely the best food and service we’ve had while in Charleston,the lamb and the duck was perfectly done and the desert was to die for,my wife loved the coconut cake,this was truly an amazing experience
We had a very special evening. We were staying at the inn and decided to try the grille. Wonderful wines and cocktails. Food was outstanding. Wait staff and sommelier were intuitive and helpful. Will definitely do this again
This is the 10th year that I have gone to the Peninsula Grill on my birthday...... which is nine hours away. That’s how good this place is.
When I walked in servers who had taken care of me through years past came up to me and wished me a happy birthday.
First of all, my server Jessica was outstanding!! If I was to ever open a fine dining restaurant she would be exactly the type of person I would want to be working for me. Great demeanor, nice sense of Humor, and $1 million smile. She also knew the menu and how things were prepared.
I ordered the scallops. I’ve watched enough of Hell’s Kitchen to look on both sides to make sure that they are seared :-) absolutely perfect. Jessica then brought me a glass of Prosecco to celebrate my birthday. Other servers from the past came over to me to give me their birthday wish. This also included the maître d’.
Of course, then there is the iconic coconut cake, enough said. I look forward to next year’s return as this is by far my favorite restaurant.
Great selection of food and wine spanning a large range of price points! Excellent service top to bottom, including the sommelier!
Another outstanding dinner. We’ve been here before and on this occasion we chose the Peninsula Grill for a quiet dinner after a busy day of events in Charleston.
There are other wonderful restaurants in Charleston but none is as consistent for its great food (don’t miss the coconut cake for desert), near perfect service and relaxing, refined ambience. Five stars!
Superb food, wine, and service quality.
Four of us dined for a birthday celebration. We always appreciate an educated and energetic wait staff and that's what we had that night. I asked that my ribeye be blackened, which was done to perfection: a nice dark crust around tender and juicy steak meat within. My coconut cake was surrounded by a chocolate inscribed birthday greeting, nice touch! Whether or not the expense is worth the adventure is a fair question, but the ambiance and food preparation is unquestionably good.
Always one of our favorites in Charleston. An elegant atmosphere, not too snooty, and quiet, unlike some of the other highly rated restaurants. A restaurant that seems to attract the locals as well as the tourists. Fantastic food, tremendous service.
We had a wonderful evening at Penninsula Grill the other night. We had a reservation and were seated right away. Taylor was our main server and she did a fantastic job. We had 6 people and all of our orders were correct and delicious. Taylor was very knowledgeable about the menu and gave great recommendations and answered all of our questions. Penninsula Grill is our favorite restaurant in Charleston and once again, they did not disappoint.
Never disappoints! From the service to the main meal to THAT CAKE! ♥️
Excellent cocktails...preparation and taste
The service was impeccable and the food was outstanding. A wonderful dining experience (once we left the too small bar area and the rude and surprisingly arrogant bartenders behind).
Outstanding food and service. A true fine dining experience.
I took my 16 year old niece. She can’t stop talking about her meal! The Peninsula Grill really is a step above the rest.
Took our son for his 18th birthday and what a treat. Food was amazing as always and the service was spectacular. Noise level was a little high and it was only 3 quarters full. This is one of our go to places for special events.
One of the finest restaurants in the South! Truly outstanding in every respect.
Dinner here was so wonderful! Our server, Jonathon, was very polite and made our meal so enjoyable. He was also very knowledgeable about the menu. The coconut cake was incredible and the service was impeccable! 10/10 would highly recommend for a romantic spot in Charleston.
Fantastic food! Nice atmosphere! Coconut cake!!!!!
Great meal. Enjoyed the special which was Tile fish. Very good.
We have never been disappointed at Peninsula Grill. Always wonderful food and great service. I'm not fond of coconut but the coconut cake is wonderful. I even brought a slice home for a friend that couldn't come.
Peninsula Grill is the first restaurant I am in Charleston. Nothing compares to this restaurant.
Great! Daniel Our waiter was exceptional . He accommodated My husband s dietary condition
I was disappointed in the overall meal. The coconut cake was a big disappointment, definitely not worth the calories!
Wow, what do I start. I was led to this restaurant because I saw online they had a tasting menu. I asked my waiter for the tasting menu and he said they didnt print one but he would ask the chef if he could put one together for me. I should have stopped right there but I tried what they "threw" together disquised as special. No special presentations, no unique flavors, not one wow dish, just a variety of stuff put on plates. The best was exactly what my grandmother used to cook, a piece of meat with a little potato and spinach. Retro 50's Sunday dinner of creativity at it's best. $ 125 and a total underwhelming experience.
My husband and I visited Peninsula Grill for another birthday celebration after our visit to another restaurant the night before was a bit of a bust. This was a 180 - a fabulous experience and we highly recommend Peninsula Grill for a special occasion. The restaurant was busy for a Monday night, but not too loud. We started our meal with an amuse-bouche from the chef which was a little crostini and it was very good. Then we had the she-crab bisque and the wedge salad, which were both great. We shared the Meyer Tenderloin and a Lobster Tail, with Yukon Whipped Potatoes on the side. It was all wonderful. Our server was attentive, but gave us plenty of space. She knew our name and told my husband happy birthday when we arrived. We ordered dessert, but she brought out a small birthday dessert with a candle from the chef before ours came out - it was a blackberry cheesecake and it was so good. We had the Chocolate Hazelnut cake for dessert which was great but very rich. Our overall experience was great and we will definitely be back if we visit Charleston again!
A great spot for a semi formal date night. The staff was excellent and the food was terrific.
Great. Can’tmiss place.
It was all perfect,ie the food, wine and service were first class.
Very nice traditional restaurant. Excellent rack of lamb!!!
The experience was great. Our waiter Jonathan was on top of everything and was very helpful. He actually made our date exceptional. I will definitely Go back and ask for him to be our waiter again.
This is my favorite restaurant in Charleston. It is outstanding in every way. I was celebrating my birthday and everything was exceptional. The entire staff is attentive and pays attention to every detail. Pricey? Yes. Worth it? Absolutely!
The food was fantastic, and service was great many people working together with great teamwork. The only thing I could complain about is that I had ordered a drink with the person beside me and the waitress never brought me my drink, but brought hers.
Thank you for my fist time in Charleston!
Our experience at Peninsula Grill far exceeded our expectations. The service was incredible. The food was wonderful. Ambiance was great. Can’t say enough nice things about our time there!
Excellent service, food, and ambience. Perfect for our anniversary celebration.
Enjoyed our dinner, the food was excellent, the staff was attentive and very responsive.
