Our server was extremely pleasant and attentive. The food left much to be desired as the she crab soup was mediocre at best and entrees were lacking flavor . The location of the restaurant was great and the decor nice . I did enjoy the lobster ravioli! Will not return , so many better places to go in Charleston.

As usual, supert service, wonderful food, and a pleasant ambience. We started with she crab soup and a lump crabmeat salad, each excellent.
Our steaks ( Myers ribeye and a center cut fillet) were perfectly prepared and the best in my memory. We enjoyed an excellent and reasonably priced Montepulciano red, and we topped the meal off with a shared slice of their famous coconut cake!

Great service, definitely high end in terms of price. Scallops were phenomenal but Snapper was tasteless. Passed on the famous Coconut cake but the Chocolate/Peanut Butter offering was equal in our book. Very noisy

We went to Peninsula Grill for dinner during our Honeymoon. It was absolutely wonderful! The service from the moment we walked in until we left was above and beyond. Our waiter was very knowledgeable of the menu and even kind enough to take a few pictures of us in the garden. Save room for dessert because the coconut cake is to die for! & I dont even like coconut!! Thanks y’all so much.

For the price, the food was mediocre. Service was slow and wait staff inattentive. Limited menu. Very noisy atmosphere. You don’t need to visit Charleston for a restaurant like this...much like any decent steakhouse throughout the country. Coconut cake, however, was delicious.

The Peninsula Grill was an amazing experience. The choices on the menu fit both my wife and I. We had a great 25th wedding anniversary celebration and I would highly recommend the experience to anyone visiting Charleston. I started with the Dungeness crab salad, and then enjoyed the the pan-seared scallops. The kitchen then prepared a special plate for the amazing slice of cake they served.

We have been to many of the excellent restaurants in Charleston and decided to try Peninsula. Very disappointed. My husband ordered a Meyer steak (found out the other steaks were choice and not prime. The steak was $60.00. Now for that kind of money, I expect it will be excellent. Well he left the entire steak. Now I will say they did not charge us for the steak but at those prices we were very disappointed. We were not complaining about the price. Just the quality of the steak. I had the scallops which were good but I would not go back again.

One of the finest restaurants in Charleston. Not inexpensive but always worth the money.
All of the staff are excellent. Our server Joanna was attentive but not pushy. The menu is varied and everything is outstanding.

We live in the area and have been here multiple times. Never fails to deliver on great service, top-notch ingredients and lovely presentation. We observed the staff valiantly and pleasantly negotiating around a high-energy toddler who was left to run around freely - do us a favor and leave the kids at home, folks. The prices and menu choices are not really targeted to children. Of course you must save room for their famous coconut cake.
