    Unfortunately, the food was super disappointing. Fried green tomatoes were bland and the crab cakes were mushy. The place is cute and the service was fine, but not worth the price for the very blah food.

    We got to restaurant and seated immediately. Our waiter came over gave us the specials and got our drinks and some delicious cornbread. Our meals were excellent. One was the seasonal salad with grilled chicken and the other was meatloaf with collard greens and both of us had fried green tomatoes that were the best. Margaritas hit the spot. Can’t wait to return.

    We had a very good server but it was too noisy. Food was so-so. Pasta with blackened salmon was taste-less. No spices what-so-ever. Fried ribs tasted good but looked sad. Shrimp and grits were good. Fried seafood platter ok.

    Ok place to grab lunch or brunch. They served a decent number of breakfast items. The food was OK. The sauce on my shrimp and grits was excellent but the grits were a little hard from sitting out. Needed some water and heated up. My friend's egg and bacon biscuit was also pretty average. Lot of good restaurants in Charleston and this one would not make the top of the list. Decor was good and locaton on King Street was good, those are the main attributes.

    Charming restaurant along the northern side of King Street in Charleston. Friendly service and nice ambience. Fried chicken sandwich was good but served cold and pimento cheese on top seemed low quality, so skip the add-on if you order that dish. Nice that they gave free refills. Sides including mac & cheese were great.

    Shrimp and grits did not measure up to other restaurants in the area, and the Ham Hock with beans was a huge disappointment - should have been on the menu as "Rice with bland gravy 4 of the smallest pieces of pork belly we could cut and 3 beans" Apps were good, but our 5 meals were over-priced and underwhelming.

    We arrived a little early to our reservation and were promptly seated by the manager Mrs Chris. Our server Ben was kind, jovial, and very accommodating. Our party ordered the Pimento Cheese starter that was served with ritz crackers & perfectly fresh and thickly sliced English cucumbers, Stuffed French Toast, 2 Eggs Your Way with grits and a Pancake, plus a biscuit and side of gravy, and the bowl of She Crab soup with a side of the Red Rice. The She Crab soup is the best I’ve had in the city and the rest of the table was also very satisfied with their food.

    This is a great spot to grab lunch or dinner while strolling through the heart of downtown Charleston. The location is as central as it gets. The menu is a broad and diverse mix of low-country classics and there is something for everyone, including kids. The shrimp and grits and she-crab soup were both phenomenal. Great for groups and families. Make a reservation as it does book up during busy periods.

Overall we had a wonderful casual brunch experience. Can’t go wrong by starting with a Bloody Mary and the pimento cheese dip!

    Virginia’s food is always consistently good. We have eaten here over the last 20 years when we come to town. We both ordered the veggie plate. The Mac n cheese is to die for. Grits, excellent. Collards, some of the best. I ordered a side of grilled shrimp for some protein and hubby ordered wings, both were excellent. Husband also ordered red rice x2 because it’s so good. Caleb was our server and he was wonderful. I bet he refilled our tea 5 times, because it’s so good also. Hostess was very nice. We don’t have a single complaint. If you choose not to go, you’re missing out!
