Have eaten here a number of times in past five years. The food which is always good, was even better than last time. Shrimp and grits were excellent lthough mussels were a little bland. It s in a beautiful setting and the outdoor patio is very nice. . Wonderful for a romantic or special celebration

The ambience of the Old Village Post Inn was top drawer, as was the neighborhood around it. A true trip into old low-country South. The service was attentive, but you never felt like they were overbearing, they just appeared whenever needed. Four of us dined and we all had wonderful meals. OVPI was my favorite restaurant in Charleston and we hit several top-rated ones. Absolutely loved their shrimp and grits.

An outstanding exprience in all ways. A special occasion was celebrated, and the Post House went out of its way to accommodate a couple of special requests, providing truly superior service. I also used a couple of OpenTable checks to pay the bill, which could not have been easier. Bravo, Post House.

Related to a Charleston restaurant but not in town. Service was a little too fast but by pacing our ordering we were able to dine and not just eat. Everything was quite good. We recommend it.

we had a terrific night. The fried oysters and fried shrimp appetizers were perfect. The men had shrimp and grits and both felt this was special. The women had two different fish dishes and they really enjoyed their dishes as well. service was great! No room for dessert!

Once again, my wife and I experienced a fantastic dinner date at the Post House. We started with the special cheese plate as an appetizer, which was wonderful. I had the Braised Beef Short Ribs on a smoky potato puree and my wife had the Scallops and a side of the Sweet Potato hash. The food is remarkable in both flavor and presentation. The staff is extremely friendly and courteous and the Bartender creates great cocktails. If you are looking for a nice, quaint, quiet place to take your significant other then this is that place.

Our movie ran longer than expected so we were running late for our Open Table reservation. We called to let the restaurant know of our 15-minute delay and they graciously held our table with no problems on a busy Saturday night. Our server was outstanding and quite knowledgeable about the menu and made nice suggestions. My wife's scallops were excellent and quite large. I had the Hanger Steak which was tasty but disappointingly tough and rubbery. The portion was also rather tiny. Our chocolate torte dessert was quite good and a nice end to what was overall a very pleasant dinner. While my steak was not the best on this particular night, Village Post House is always consistently good and one of our "go-to" restaurants in Mt. Pleasant.

Food was great, only disappointment was getting 3 scallops for the entree. That combined with a pea puree that was more of a sauce on the bottom makes for a very small meal, esp considering it was the most expensive thing on there.

We had been intending to try the Old Village Post House for some time, so we invited 3 friends to join us for a Friday night fivesome there. They were already busy when we arrived at 6:00pm, but escorted us promptly to our table in the windowed corner of an upstairs dining room. The server was gracious, attentive and helpful with wine selections. The house salad was fresh, crisp and tasty, accented nicely with sliced cherry tomatoes and craisins. Our table ordered 3 different entres - scallops, flounder, and pan seared duck breast. Everyone was pleased with their choices. We shared one chocolate dessert which was yummy, too. Will definitley go back!

An excellent choice for a fantastic dinning experience. Great wine and beer list. The appetizers are imaginative and always tasty -Butternut Squash Bisque suberb. I had the Tile fish this trip and it was fabulous - crispy coating, moist and favorable inside. Great service that was attentive but not intrusive.

This is a charming "back-in-time" restaurant. The food and service are both very good and the atmosphere reminds us of dining rooms a few years ago. It is a quite area with charm. We have eaten here several times and enjoy the outdoor seating in the warmer months.

The service in the bar was awful.We received drinks prior to dinner that did not have a full shot of liquor.When questoned the woman who was filling in for the bartender said would you like a double? No comment on that one.When we received our bill,the original bartender charged us and our friends each for what was the total bill instead of splitting it as requested.When we brought it to his attention,he apologized and said he put it into the system as a split bill.Again no comment.Meal was great as was the service.The bar?? Get new help.

One of the best restaurant values anywhere. An iconic setting, excellent food and superb service. Hard to find fault. If you are staying in Charleston and have a car, drive across the bridge to Mt. Pleasant and feel like you are entering a time warp. The restaurant is set on a street that looks like something out of the 1950's, and the restaurant itself has one of the nicest atmospheres of any anywhere. You won't regret it.

We had a wonderful evening which started with cocktails at the bar and progressed to a nice seating in the main room. The service was excellent. The food was simply fantastic. I had the Shrimp & Grits, my wife the Trout. We had the fried oysters as an appetizer and they too were wonderful. The ambiance is perfect for a dinner for two as the room is muted by soft lighting, small intimate tables and is very cozy. I recommend the Post House to anyone wanting great drinks, great food and great service all in a fantastic atmosphere of reserved quiet.
