Old Village Post House Ratings and Reviews
For the price the food should be excellent. Risotto was undercooked. Steaks were mediocre. Salad and soup was great. Server was clearly inexperienced. Have lived here all my life and been here a lot. Quality has gone down since halls chophouse owners purchased. Sadly will not be returning any time soon.
Great alternative to downtown Charleston. Very quaint neighborhood with gorgeous homes. A short walk down to the water at the end of the street near sunset was awesome! You can see the sunset over downtown Charleston if you time it right. Food was incredible. Service was attentive and helpful. I will be back!
Enjoyed this place even before Hall's acquired it, now it's even better. My only negative comment would be that they need to figured out what they have to do to have the garbage picked up either in the back of the building or before or after dinner hours. Having to walk past the horrible stench of restaurant garbage on the sidewalk in front of a nice restaurant does not set a good precedent for one's dining experience.
Lobster bisque was outstanding, one bowl was enough to share! Intimate atmosphere, but comfortable. I had the grouper with the risotto, it was devine, and the grouper was cooked perfectly. The lobster in the risotto was delicious, nice portion size as well. My husband chose the special of the evening which was a veal chop with crab raviolis, his plate was clean at the end, he loved it.
Service was okay, wine was spilled, it took a while to receive the bill at the end. It was our anniversary, multiple tables around us received a complimentary glass of bubbly for their special occasion, we did not. I can only only assume our server forgot to do this for us?
Dessert was a bit disappointing, hummingbird cake was just okay, a bit dry. My husband got the grand marnier milkshake and he was not impressed. The sundae looked delicious and simple, next time we go we will get that to split!
Overall the dinner was delicious, with the food being so outstanding I can overlook the rest and will return to give service and dessert another chance!
I have always enjoyed dining at Old Village Post House. I was disappointed as were the other 3 at our table. It was just not as good as before. That is why I rated it just "good". It wasn't bad, it just wasn't great. Surprised that the shrimp were not local, the flounder not great, and doubt that they were fresh. My filet was good.
We live in Charleston and this is one of our favorite restaurants, but this last visit left us wanting. Our server was slow to take our order, instead standing by the bar and gazing off into space. After our food was served, she disappeared entirely, absent from the dining room for at least ten minutes. Some of the other staff were chatting together, forcing my husband to stand up and walk to them to ask for more sweet tea. Our server popped in for less than a minute and left, which made me ask for a manager. The manager was very apologetic and even comped our meal, which was nice, but our whole experience was already ruined. When the problems started, I wish I had asked for a manager, but I was trying to give the waitress a chance to redeem herself.
We had eaten at the Old Village Post House once a year for six or seven years and always thought it was great. We went this July, however, and were disappointed. We were put into a back room where the waitress seemed to forget about us. Music was played on a CD player, but there were long stretches where there was no music at all. The quality of the dishes served was down a bit from past years, too.
We went for my Wife's Birthday. There was a nice card signed by the staff wishing her Happy Birthday on the Table. Our waitress , Paula, was very helpful with some wine recommendations. My wife had the Flounder and I had the Grouper, both on the regular menu, and they were excellent. A nice mix of flavors.
We have dined here twice and both times I had the shrimp and grits. I am from the northeast so I really wanted to try some authentic southern food and I was not disappointed! We also loved the broiled oysters and homemade biscuits. The place is a bit pricy but very cute and the food is worth it!
A good midday brunch after church. My wife had the buttermilk pancakes with bacon. A hungrier person though might not have been as satisfied with just two skinny pancakes but she totally enjoyed it and was satisfied. I had the Farmer's omelet which was excellent and even substituted the potatoes/grits with fresh fruit with no problem. I also had the shrimp cocktail which could have been chilled a little longer. Service was excellent all around. Already looking at the dinner menu.
I am sorry to say that, while the food and service were above average, our evening was not a pleasant experiance due to our seating. We had reservations and arrived on time. When we were seated about 10 minutes past our reservation time, we were led to a seat in the bar area between a swinging glass entry door and a table of 6. Needless to say, conversation was impossible. There was a constant stream of people walking by our table, I bet that door was easily swung open 150 times during our seating. Absolutely nothing quaint or quiet.....so dissappointed. There are so many other better choices in Charleston where customers count.
We were welcomed nicely. Service was very nice as well. Our appetizer was fair to say the least. My jumbo shrimp were very small for jumbos. The prime rib special with the sides was not what I expected for the Halls Rest Group. The meat had many areas of fat along with grissle. Rather tough yo eat. After discussing with my date today (Monday) we both agreed it wasn't nearly what we expected. I've had better cuts of meat at Outback Steak House. It's been some time that I've been to the Old Village, I hope u can improve this!! I do hope this gets to management
We went there to celebrate my wife's birthday and we're not disappointed. We had cocktails in the bar (a/c was a little cold) and then ate dinner in the dining room (much better temperature). Lobster bisque and the steaks were delicious and Tony, our waiter, could not have been better. A memorable evening and one that we will repeat.
We have eaten here many times and have always been pleased with our meals. However, this time I ordered a filet cooked medium and there was very little pink in it. The seasoning was very tasty, though. Our friend ordered the mussels and some did not taste up to par. Our waitress was excellent and we were given delicious desserts to take home. This was our first unfavorable visit there and will certainly go back and give it another try.
