Made our reservation weeks ahead for party of 8 ~ we we all in town attending a wedding.

Arrived at reserved time to be told basically that they always overbook & reservations mean nothing.

We waited about 45 minutes ~~ there were 2 tables of what looked to be high schoolers for homecoming dance. These kiddos were already seated when we arrived, (& had ordered ~ because we asked) ~~ &, at the time we gave up & left the restaurant, the 2 tables of teens had only received water!!!

Horrible service & “reservation” situation.

After leaving, walked in to Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse. Our party was greeted, immediately seated & had an outstanding dining (& cocktail) experience.

I was happy to see our $1000+ bill go to a restaurant more deserving!!

Served medium rare lamb well done, took 15 minutes to find waitress to tell her and then long time to get meal back. It was good after that but waiting an hour for food is ridiculous. Also asked for more bread on appetizer abd took 45 minutes to get it and charged us. Service was horrible. Never came back after appetizers without us asking 2 other waitresses to find her. Horrible service . Great ambience.

This place is very overrated.. the view was nice.. that’s about it. Service was extremely slow... drinks take anywhere from 20-30 minutes to arrive and they are only subpar... the scallops were sandy... it is extremely loud and crowded.. people constantly walking and standing right in front of your table... they were blasting uncensored rap music.. I can go on but honestly just want to forget that I ever went here. Would not recommend for a date night, or any night... unless you like eating in a night club...

I was really pleasantly surprised that the food was bland. It was very underwhelming. We came to celebrate my friend's birthday. We heard from other friends that the food wasn't that great, but we were hopeful that we would have a different experience. Sadly, my party of 5 was disappointed.
The ambience was great! The aesthetics were amazing. We were excited to sit on the rooftop, but it had just rained and the rooftop was super slippery and I felt very unsafe and people were slipping and sliding every where - luckily nobody fell but a few were pretty close.
Overall, I probably won't go back- which makes me sad because the menu options seem pretty great.

I had reservations wasn't happy when a couple walked passed every one waiting on line to be seated. When I stated we're waiting and we were here before him he replied he had reservations I said so do I. The young lady seating the people ignored me and seated him regardless that we all were there first. Don't want to make it a racial accident but me and the couple behind me were minority.

Fabulous time! I have lived in the area over 10 years and discovered a new favorite place to dine without of town guests! Perfect access to tour the park directly afterwards or before.

Saturday night out with friends. We arrived ahead of our reservation and went to the bar area for cocktails and an appetizer. The friendly servers were doing their best to keep up with the number of guests but were overwhelmed (not their fault -- the place was really packed). The charcuterie arrived well ahead of drinks. Suspecting that the noise level would be better for conversation outside the bar, we moved to the dining area when our reserved table opened up. The friendly, welcoming servers were busy but not overwhelmed. The atmosphere was great -- amazing views, great weather, even for a hot July evening in SC. As we enjoyed our dinner and the calmer vibe, we commented how great it was that the restaurant provided different vibes/venues: one like a sports bar, an outdoor bar area, an indoor bar area, an indoor dining area, and outside dining as well. Two of our party really enjoyed their burgers. One order of crab cakes was a "won't order again," and one of scallops benedict was satisfactory. We ordered a second round of drinks toward the end of the meal that took so long to arrive we changed our minds. The server apologized that the bar was really backed up. Overall a pleasant enough visit. The place is really popular, so probably better to visit when it's a little less crowded to get the best impression.

We booked it for the view and we were hoping for good food and service, but instead I had a disgusting and humiliating experience. After 40 minutes, my jumbo scallops, which were barely an inch across, were delivered garnished with long dark hair between the quail egg and scallop. I found 4 hairs immediately, and demonstrated to the server that each time you put a knife to the dish more hair appeared. It was actually too weird to be an accident. This was reported to the manager (supposedly) but no manager appeared and no remedy was offered except some other food I did not request. $47 for 2 drinks and my wife's steak and eggs. Extremely upsetting but don't expect this award winning place to care. An outrage. The fun part is my wife is a travel writer and also a Hilton Honors member.
