    Lunch with my hubby on our weekend in Charleston. We wanted something on the lighter side, so I ordered the Peach Salad (which was small) and he had the Burrata with heirloom tomatoes, both had great flavor. Food and service were surprisingly good, cocktails too!

    Good simple menu for lunch. Burger was really delicious(bacon made it)! Was worried it could be windy up on roof, not at all. Good value, close to the market.

    The food was so good, but the service even better! There was live music, which is always a plus. The server was super friendly, perfectly attentive and the vibe was really cool. We were skeptical about the skewered filet, but it was amazing. Loved The Peacock!

    Went to the Peacock for Sunday brunch. Experience started out poorly when they didn’t have hot tea. If you’re going to offer brunch, you need hot tea. Coffee was weak, even after ordering a double espresso to add to it (for which they charged an additional $5). French toast tasted like something from the fairgrounds and the amount of grease was intolerable. Orders and checks were all done table side on a machine; very disruptive as we had to wait until the server finished inputting our order, process our bill to continue our conversation. Definitely will need to step up their game if they want to compete on the Charlesron restaurant market.

    THE Best burger/side salad and lamb chops we’ve had in Charleston. The service was right on point! The roof top was a nice way to enjoy dinner. I am gluten free and they catered my dinner to my needs, no questions asked. They were wonderful! Next time we’ll enjoy a drink in the atmosphere of the bar or main dining area.

    My husband and I took my mom here for a pre-Easter dinner. The food, service and atmosphere were amazing! Poutine is a staple for us and did not disappoint. The filet medallions were melt in your mouth and the sweet pea risotto and salmon very delicious. Definitely recommend! Enjoy!

    10/10 experience and we will definitely be back! Our server was wonderful and the entire staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was top tier and the scallops were the best I’ve ever had! We shared the mixed berry cobbler with strawberry cheesecake ice cream and it was out of this world! I cannot say enough about The Peacock..absolutely amazing!

We all had peach salad which was delicious but everyone seemed have a different portions. We are all pretty light lunch eater but this seemed very small portions for even us.

    We had a nice dinner on second floor! The scallops were delicious, they were on small size and only got 3. Men felt they could have had 4 scallops, women were fine with 3. It’s a cool ambiance! I go back to see what night life is like - but after a long day at SEWE we were fading..
