This Restaurant is Permanently Closed... obviously you have not updated your files.. The owner called and personally gave me the info as I had a reservation for Thanksgiving Day... Morgan Creek Grill was one of the best Restaurants in Isle of Palms and we are so sad that it is gone....

First time patron
Went with my wife and a friend
Likes that they served the regular lunch and Brunch menus to chose from. Make your own Bloodie was great, lots of veggies.
Eggs Benedict was excellent as well as the Ceaser Salad
Fantastic view as the boats went by. Sat at a table by the window

Hi there, Ginger. This is certainly a surprise to hear. I'll make sure that management is aware of this review, so that we can find where things went wrong on Sunday. We do appreciate you leaving this review. Good or bad, reviews help us know where things work and where things don't. I hope that you will consider giving us another visit for our Brunch, Lunch, or Dinner as we get out of our busy season and don't experience issues of wait times moving forward. - Ryan

We selected Morgan Creek Grill based on the TripAdvisor reviews and the menu. We were looking for fish/shellfish grilled - not fried. I had the red drum and my boyfriend had the swordfish. The entrees were delicious! We also enjoyed the restaurant ambiance.

BEAUTIFUL view at sunset between the boats, docks and water. We had the most pleasant, attentive waitress and the food came out promptly. The food was good with a nice menu. All 6 of us enjoyed our food. The hot crab dip was very nice but the fried green tomatoes were a bit thick with little taste. From salads to porkchops, there is a nice selections at reasonable rates. A solid restaurant with a nice bar with games in the TVs. Will definitely go back.

View at window table was great as was our server, but actual food was very disappointing! Crab dip and she crab soup were a good flavor but sadly lacking any quality crab. Fish tacos ha a very small, dry piece of mahi mahi and lacking -- you could roll up the small tortilla into a small burrito! Saturday at 5:30 and out of oysters! Roasted Brussels sprouts were shaved and hard as a rock. Sadly disappointing!

Joel, this is certainly disappointing to hear. I do apologize that your visit was so dismal. As for the oysters, unfortunately the recent string of hurricanes have delayed all oysters coming into the Charleston area for all restaurants. For the rest of the matters, I will make sure that the kitchen is made aware. Hopefully, you had the chance to speak to your server and/or management about these issues, so that they could be resolved upon arising. Thank you for the review. - Ryan

Three in our party had mediocre food at best, and two dishes were terrible. The shrimp and deviled egg appetizer was awful. Calamari was over cooked and average. She crab soup was very good. I had the Barramundi fish and seasoning was bland, and the fish gamey tasting with terrible flavor. (I should have known not to eat a fish I’d never heard of before.) My husband had the shrimp and seafood hoppin John which was just average in flavor and was mostly rice, which may be how it is supposed to be. Our server was good and friendly, but she never checked in to see how our meals were, and didn’t inquire when seeing my plate hardly touched. It was her favorite dish, so at the time I figured it was just me not liking it, so I didn’t mention it. I should have so they perhaps could have made sure nothing was wrong with the fish. Next time something is this bad I will definitely do that. We won’t return to this restaurant again though.

I booked this reservation for my parents so they could enjoy a special dinner for their 45th wedding anniversary. As my Mother is fighting cancer, I wanted her to feel special and for them both to put aside their worries and enjoy each other. I called the morning of the reservation and spoke with Ryan who allowed me to pay for a surprise dessert to be delivered to their table that evening and requested, if all possible, a water view seat. Ryan was so kind and assured he would do what he could for the seating preference.
My parents dinner was amazing; the food, the service, the experience was perfect!! I cannot thank everyone enough at MCG for a very special treat for my parents who deserve so much happiness!!
