JB was great. Food outstanding
Best ever always!
Jordan was an excellent wait person. Steak and crab cake were incredible. Would not get hash browns or pecan pie again.
Pretty much empty. Not really a happening place although it’s in the middle of tourist town. Makes you wonder. Food was very good, but not outstanding. Service was “stiff”. Still had good food and a good time, so 4 stars.
Recently reopened after undergoing renovations. Beautiful reservation with outstanding food.
Overall, a great experience at Grill 225. Our waiter, JB, was courteous and knowledgeable about the menu. The 16 ounce ribeye should be their flagship steak. It was very good and it was prepared just as requested. The grilled octopus was charred slightly too much - but was still very good. Grill 225 remains one of the best steakhouses in Charleston without a doubt!
Appetizers and sides were good. Entree flounder was not edible. Rubbery and tasted like grease or oil. Left 60% on plate and wasn’t questioned why. Attention to dining much more prevalent at competitors downtown. Glad we tried but never returning
Been there a bunch of times over the years. Had a vegan in our group this time and they weren’t accommodating at all. Almost to the point it was ridiculous and made us buy several full sized vegetables sides to make a vegetable meal. Also, the sides in general weren’t as good as they used to be. The steak was very good though.
Great service, food fantastic, 100% the right choice
Totally enjoyed our experience!
Amazing dinner- best I ha e had in Charleston since moving here last year!
We’re “out of towers” nut 225 is always a staple for us. Best steak review remains in tact. Food always exceeds expectations but service and atmosphere was lacking at best this visit. COVID affects everything but felt rushed and like the only people in the restaurant. Atmosphere wasn’t ideal as we were one of 4 tables on a Friday night.
The server we had tried to do a good job but it was quite evident that the restaurant was understaffed. We are talking about a restaurant where you spend more than $100 for each person in your party. A restaurant that should be one of the best in Charleston, but honestly nothing special because our water glasses were empty for way too long. During this virus if a restaurant wants to be open they should provide better service to it's patrons because we are the ones trying to support them and not having a stocked bar for their specialty drinks is absurd. I spent over $100 just in tip and taxes. Why are taxes so high right now? Shouldn't government reduce the burden so business can survive? Honestly nothing special about our steaks and I have gotten much better at Ruth Chris a chain steakhouse. The Blue crab soup was fair the French Onion soup was very good. The wedge salad was good but the chopped Caesar salad was tasteless. We have been to Grill 225 many times but this the last. If I just wanted food I would have gone to Longhorns but I wanted a special experience for a special occasion and that did not happen.
Went out for New Years to celebrate with my coworkers and we had a great time. The service was excellent, the food was quality. We really enjoyed the scampi lobster and the steak was cooked to perfection. The drinks were so very unique and yummy.
My significant other and I ate at your establishment on NYE at 7pm. We ordered the BLT salad. During eating this salad, I first had some extremely hard and non-chewable items. I removed them from my mouth and placed them on an appetizer plate. Then my significant other experienced the same with her salad. We brought it up to our server and she apologized. Well, that hard non-chewable item caused a cracked tooth and the tooth has been loose ever since. The rest of the main course was amazing, the filet was one of the best we have experienced, but we are now left with a dentist appointment for the cracked and loose tooth.
Dec 30 2020. Great meal with 5 diners. The Filet was a great hit - had a super char on it and very juicy. Really like the champagne selection as well.
Grill 225 is our favorite place to eat!!
The food was incredible and we over ordered with two appetizers per person, a 3 pound lobster and amazing filet expecting to try everything but it was so good we ate every last bite. If my wife didn’t want to try new places on our trip, I would go back here every night.
The room is very pretty.
I feel like the restaurant is charging ultra-premium prices for what doesn't quite pass for an ultra-premium experience. The liquid nitrogen cocktails seemed gimmicky and out of place. Standard run-of-the-mill glassware and clunky china did not support the look and feel the restaurant was trying to pull-off. Crazy techno music also did not match the wood and table cloth feel.
Make no mistake, the food was good. The service was attentive- but not polished. If you're going to put a 3.5x mark-up on a bottle of wine, I would expect to drink it from crystal stemware.
Great service as always!
Have been to Charleston many times. This was by fare our best meal! Everything outstanding. Being Christmas time just made it more beautiful inside. Service, food, atmosphere, everything was five star. If you have a special meal, it was our 36th anniversary, I can't recommend a better place to go in Charleston.
Extraordinary service as usual! Our meal was lovely, including wonderful starters (escargot and oysters rockefeller) followed by the filet with grilled tomatoes and truffle chips! No room for dessert although the menu was tempting!
It is the best restaurant downtown. Never disappointed.
Grill 225 was easily the best restaurant we visited while in Charleston. We decided to go because of the $50 voucher we received for staying at the Market Place Pavilion. We were blown away with our experience. The server was both professional and personable, meeting our every need. The food was higher priced, but the portions were very generous as we were able to share one BLT salad and both have enough left overs from our entrees for another meal. My crab cakes were the best I've ever had and my husband's steak was as exceptional as any steakhouse. We'll definitely make a point to go again the next time we are in Charleston!
Everyone was so nice. The food was great.
Highly recommended!! My girlfriend and I recently celebrated our anniversary at Grill 225...and I couldn't have been more pleased with our overall experience! Our server, JB, was very personable, knowledgeable, and attentive. We will definitely be going back again as soon as possible.
Consistently excellent both in service and quality
Our server, Jordan, was outstanding. She made the evening for us.
This is a great restaurant in a great location. My wife and I really enjoyed our night out. They had a jazz band playing tunes which was nice touch.
Great service and the best food in Charleston. Great wine list.
Great food and service. My wife had the rib eye and I had the filet. Both were cooked perfectly. When we return to Charleston we will return to Grill 225 for sure.
Awesome ! Best steak ever
Great as usual. Always impressed with their dry aged steaks. I felt at home especially when it was birthday. The best part of the experience is the service. They have some of the most rare table side service in Charleston. And this is coming from some who dines out every week to try different food.
The resturant is beautiful and the steaks were magnificent, possibly the best I've ever had. We were made to feel as if we were the most important patrons. The staff was impeccable. I would definitely dine here again.
Excellent, from the start to beginning. Patrick was our waiter, he was awesome!
Awesome all the way around
This is my favorite restaurant in Charleston. Great service, fantastic food!
Best steak in Charleston!!
Our steaks were awesome, as were the vegetables. However our friend had a bad cut of tuna that she couldn’t cut. The restaurant offered to get her something else which she refused. Then she wasn’t charged for the meal so everything worked out. Otherwise everything was delicious!
The food was overcooked and bland.
