Very disappointing! This was our second time coming for dinner. First time was about 2 years ago. Its very expensive so we waited to come back for a date night as a special treat. The server was overwhelmed and very rushed and clearly had too many tables and took very little time with us. We waited a long time for our drinks....she was all over the place with tables inside and outside. I ordered the mussels for my dinner with a salad. The mussels were terrible and very small so I shared my husband's plate. He ordered the quail which was good but when you take everything in, we paid $185 for dinner for 2, we should have left feeling like we had an amazing meal. Service and ambiance was bad! We live in Charleston and have many options for dining out. I don't know what happened but not at all up to par with our first dinner date. We will not be back.

The food prices are high, the portions are small and overall the flavors are bland. The restaurant is loud, service is average and the website does not allow you to email them feedback. I emailed Halls Management and have never heard back. Many other restaurants in town to patronize.

this was our second experience at this establishment, and each time it has been virtually perfect. The service was 100% attentive, the courses were times perfectly, the main course was almost too well presented to eat - it was picture perfect and fantastic. Two in our party of four had the 8 0z filet, and it was the best either of us had had in memory. We thought it couldn't get any better until dessert. Each of us had something different, and had to purposely eat slowly to make every bite count. I had the tin roof sundae which sounds a bit 'every day', but it was not. The ice cream is home made from Wholly Cow, as was the chocolate and the caramel toppings, and home made cream. It was an amazing experience all the way around, and our favorite spot while in Isle of Palms.

Everything was great. The service was excellent. We were a little late due to lack of parking in the area but they were very accommodating. We asked to sit at a quiet spot in the bar and they immediately honored our request. One steak was a little rarer then asked for but much better then overcooked.

This was my second time eating here in the last week, with two different parties. My frustration the first time was that I had to insist on the main dining room multiple times despite having noted the request in my original reservation. To avoid any conflict this time, I noted it on my online reservation AND called to confirm an hour before seating that we would be able to sit in the main dining room instead of the bar room. I'll be damned if the hostess (older dark headed woman in cardigan sweater) didn't try to sit us in the bar area again! I said "may we please sit in the dining room and pointed to the main area." She gestured to the back and said "we have a dining area back here as well." In front of my date I had to INSIST on the main dining room for the FOURTH TIME on this visit alone. Then she sat us in the entrance/doorway facing the kitchen. Why is this such a problem? I hate that I was put in this position a second time. I don't want to be pushy and certainly don't want to be offputing in front of guests, so why do you continuously try to go against my blatent requests? Isn't that one the points of dining at an upscale restaurant and making reservations? So frustrating. I won't continuing giving my business to someone who can't follow through on simple requests.

Enjoyed a night with my sister in law who was visiting from out of town. Service was excellent but I will mention that they tried several times to sit us anywhere other than the dining room. I had reservations and specified that I would like to be seated in main dining room when I made the reservation. When we arrived, the hostess didn't do a great job of making us feel welcome. You could tell it was busy and she was speaking to other staff about where she could possibly sit us. She asked if we could sit outside. I declined. She left us and consulted more staff. She came back and said would we willing to sit at the bar. I declined. She left a third time to consult staff before finally sitting us in the main dining room. Not sure the issue but it definitely made us feel like a nuisance!

The menu was very heavy and not the right mix of lunch and breakfast choices. The menu was smeared with dried food. My pancakes were excellent, however not too many dishes I would chose for a weekend brunch. The lovely little biscuits are no longer served and we were presented with nondescript dry bread. My mimosa was made with low quality orange juice and very little champagne. The dining room in the bar area was almost empty, yet everyone was packed into a small number of tables so close together it was noisy and not very comfortable to be sitting so close to other diners. I can walk to the restaurant and it was my favorite. I was so disappointed. Service was slow and inattentive. 😭

The quality of the food far outpaces the quantity, that said, the food was very good and nicely plated/presented. Our waitperson was excellent, affording old friends enough time for conversation over drinks prior to ordering.
The roasted oysters were excellent! Try them! The halibut over risotto was tasty, but we both would have enjoyed a bit more fish, a little less risotto. The crab cake was excellent and a nice portion.
I LOVE Old Village Post House for their Tavern in the back and the burgers served there. Truly a wonderful experience especially with the outdoor garden dining available, weather permitting.
OPHT will remain at the top of my dining list in Mount Pleasant, but I'll hope for a better serving of fish next time out!

I normally would comment on the food and what we ate but I'm not going to due to other issues with this establishment. First time visit for 4 of us. We had no issue with the food or service. Both very good and IMO are highly rated. However, they need to turn up the AC, add a little better lighting (needed a cell phone light to read the menu) and cut down on the noise. They have two eating areas. The bar "room" and the "main" dining room. They tried to seat us in the Bar area first at a small table for 4 people. You couldn't carry on a conversation in the room due to the noise and the number of people in this area. When we said no they had us wait maybe 10 minutes and seated us in the "main" dining area. Quieter but still lighting and poor AC issues.

Bottom line is.... Fix the issues and the Old Village Post House could be a very, very good dining experience.

Food and service were excellent. The atmosphere was ok but not great - it was a hot day so they needed a fan in the corner of the room to try to deep it cool. Was a little noisy for us as well. We were glad we were seated in the corner. For the price we paid I would expect to be more comfortable.

Make reservations, don't expect a walk-in availability. Small dining room in a nice, quaint setting, much different than the Shem Creek and Rt. 703 (Coleman Ave) eateries. The Hall family touch very much present and appreciated. The fact that it is also an Inn (upper floors) should make it a nice alternative to downtown locations for "night before" stays prior to checking into beach condos.

Wait staff very attentive and accommodating to a special request. Food was excellent.

Was very loud. Food was just OK given the bill for an app, two salads and entrees was 130$ with tip,no drinks.
Won't be back--portion size was very small and there was some kind of party on the second floor that sounded like a frat party! Was told it was a local business having a "monthly" party. Sounded out of control and ruined the ambiance.

Was a send-off night out for our son starting college the following week. Seated in the tavern area, which was very loud and quite cold. Service for the first half to 2/3 of the meal was slow...started making us feel like we were an afterthought to them. The food was, as expected, excellent. Service picked up toward the end and as the bar thinned just a bit, conversation was easier. My wife and I had been there by ourselves before and ate in the dining room and enjoyed it so much we wanted to take our sons there. Were disappointed that they didn't have the same initial experience that we did.

The food was superb, as usual, but most of all, our server, Zach, was outstanding. He was professional, knowledgeable, attentive (just the right touch) and personable. I have eaten in some of the finest restaurants in America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia, and Zach is as good as the servers in any of those restaurants. He represents your establishment extremely well, and you should be proud of his service.

Food and service were both very nice. However, it is EXTREMELY overpriced. The prices clearly skyrocketed after the Hall family took over. There are many restaurants in the Charleston area where one can get food of equal - or better- quality for far less.
