Above all the food was absolutely incredible.The service was the best I have ever had. From the Nitrotini’s to the Fried lobster, BLT salad , Prime aged Ribeye cooked to perfection and shrimp and grits everything was top of the line.
People would say a little pricey, but you get what you pay for.
The Prices meet the expertise, the experience and superior quality. I would go again and again!

This is now our favorite restaurant in all of Charleston. We celebrated our 19th wedding anniversary and they had champagne waiting for us as soon as we sat down. The service was outstanding. And the food was simply incredible. Would highly recommend to everyone. Top notch!

We went here for the first time to celebrate our daughter visiting from Amsterdam. The food was more than excellent. The waiter was great on his suggestions and attentiveness to our table. The ambience is so worth going along with the service and supreme quality of food. We will be back. Fine dining at its best in Charleston!

Grill 225 is by far the best steak house in Charleston. I had ribeyes and strip steak at several other locations downtown , and non compared to quality or taste at Grill 225.

Meal was excellent and service top notch, you have to try one of their Nitrotini's when you stop by for dinner...

Superb service.

The quality and preparation of the steak: excellent, as it should be for the price.

Drinks: The Nitrotini is fun for the fun fare but tastes like a typical well-made martini.

Upstairs Rooftop Bar: not to be missed. Excellent waitstaff as well. The view is fantastic.

We would absolutely return.

Went to dinner at Grill 225 for my husband’s birthday and it did not disappoint. We started with the BLT Salad and the candied walnuts made it a stand out salad. He had the filet and loved the seasoning on it. I had the flounder and it was cooked perfectly and the sauce was creamy and light. We got the creamed corn and mushrooms as sides, and I would highly recommend both.

Absolutely hands down the best steak. Flounder is excellent also. The waiters new the menu very well and could answer all questions. Recommended wine pairings was spot on. You have to get a nitrotini. Will be going back.
