    This has always been our “go to” for special occasions. The staff at the front desk was super nice and let me show the girls the ballroom where my wedding reception was. They were above and beyond friendly & helpful. Lunch was just ok. Not what we are used to having there...maybe it is b/c of the pandemic? Maybe new management? Not sure.

    It was good. Menu needs some work and it wasn’t quite what I was expecting but it was nice. Service was very good. Food was average for this market. Value was decent for the market. Overall I enjoyed it.

    This is the worst dining experience I've ever had. I'm a resident of Charleston, and have dined in many its great restaurants. I had out of town guests, a total of 7 in my party, each of us shared the same disappointment in the food offerings. The duck confit I ordered was uneatable, the duck was so overcooked it was crisp, the polenta cake was burned to the point that it resembled a hockey puck. Appetizers that should have been warm or hot were served room temperature. The bread was stale, other items were obliviously reheated (French-fries tasted like Styrofoam). I won't detail each meal, but all were disappointing. We couldn't believe such poor quality food would be served at such a reputable restaurant. However, our server, Steve, did provide good service and did what he could do to graciously handle our complaints.

    Perfect evening in the courtyard of the Mills house at the Barbados room. French sparkling Rose, house made meats and cheeses and wonderful variety of small and large plates. We had the Sweet potato croquettes which were delicious and split a homemade pasta with a cream sauce. Service was prompt and friendly, they turned on fire heaters for us the moment they saw us putting on our coats. Great experience!

    My party went for restaurant week. The soup, mushroom and leek was very delightful, however the rest of the meal was poorly prepared. The fried chicken pieces were confusing and the skin was soft and inedible. The flavor or the breading would have been delicious if prepared better. The peas were undercooked and inedible. The flourless chocolate cake was presented without a knife and it was impossible to cut with only a fork due to how hard and cold it was. Overall I was very disappointed in our experience.

    Beautiful room, used the restaurant week menu.Appetizers were very good. Main course of fried chicken failed. Listed as buttermilk fried chicken but did not meet expectations for a battered crust. Instead crust was thin more like Panko and had a sweet syrup poured over it. This dish should not be served. It also included a bed of greens and beans which were very unattractive contained no color.

    Th is is such a beautiful restaurant. My husband and I went for brunch and started with a dozen oysters. I ordered the charcuterie plodder which was varied and huge. The smoked duck was a delicious surprise. My husband enjoyed the confit chicken wings. Very pleat with our experience again.

    Another great dinner at the Barbadoes room. We arrived early for our reservation and despite the fact the dining room was almost full, the manager was so nice and sat us right away. Our waiter Steve was friendly and professional. We had the sausage plate, burrata, Grouper and ribeye. Both were great but the ribeye could have been cooked a bit more. We were celebrating a birthday and they sent us over a dessert with a candle, on the house! Great service and food! Thank you!!
