Disappointing visit...no Soy milk? Really, this is 2020. An order of toast consists of one piece of bread? We had to ask for Jelly as it was not included with toast and biscuits. Food was good and place is very pretty. we had 9 AM reservations and got served quickly.

Lunchtime for five adults and it was good. Salads, a meatloaf plate, and a fried chicken plate were all tasty. Service was above average (but not attentive) since we had to ask for water and tea refills along with replacement flatware for main course after an appetizer. The venue is inviting with lovely artwork. We will return to enjoy again.

Delicious and service was impeccable. Did not feel like we were rushed for them to flip a table like sometimes happens. Great location to the music hall.

Excellent Brunch
We had Deviled Eggs, Fried Oyster Salad and their famous Fried Chicken with Mac & Cheese and Cream Corn.
Everything was Spot On and our server was excellent.
We finished with Banana Pudding. YUM

I had the chicken pot pie. It was HUGE! I took most of it home, and had two more meals from the leftovers. Really, that's just silly. Why not cut the price and the portion in half?

Was a great place! Food was a bit salty but that may have had todo more with our northern palates! My son loved his mac and cheese and my mom wouldn’t stop talking about the Grits! Would definitely go back!

Cold fries, cold grilled cheese, cold toast on BLT and pimento cheese was frigid. Never came back to refill drinks.

Loved eating here! Our server, i believe her name was Jessica, had the best attitude and was so sweet. Will be dreaming about their fried green tomatoes and oyster po boy for quite some time.

My family and I were there for the first with a frequent guest. We had breakfast early on Sunday morning before the rush. Nick, our server was cordial and accommodating. I was encouraged to try the fried chicken but opted for shrimp and grits. It was outstanding! The shrimp were fresh, andouille was not overpowering and the grits flavorful. Just perfect! Tried a chicken breast and it was also wonderful. My grandkids loved the pancakes too. I can’t wait to go back.

Nicole, our server, was delightful and made us feel right at home! Everyone was friendly and welcoming and the food was excellent breakfast fare. We’ve dined quite a few times at Virginia’s but never for breakfast. It may become our new favorite in-town destination!

Unfortunately, diner was not up to our expectations, but in all fairness to the restaurant they tried their best and adjusted the check appropriately. As we are out-of-towners and don't get to Charleston on a regular basis, we would certainly give it another try when the opportunity presents itself. The service was very good and the management treated us with great respect despite the difficulties.

Very nice and very good Southern food. Prices reasonable for downtown. If you order the Chicken Pot Pie, it is VERY Good but huge, It is as big as a Pie you buy in a store., it is made in a pie tin.. 1 can easily serve 2 people.

I had heard such good things about Virginia's and was looking forward to trying it. Twice in the last week I have eaten there. The first night, a Monday, I had the fried chicken. It had a good flavor but part of the skin was blackened. The green beans were mediocre but the mashed potatoes were good. The portions were generous. The service was good and the waitress helpful with our group of five that took a while to assemble.

The second time I dined at Virginia's was on a Wednesday night before attending the Christmas Musical around the corner. Decided to go with two starters instead of an entree. The she crab soup had a lot of crab in it and was very tasty. Just a little thinner in texture than I am used to. My sister-in-law like the thinner version. My second started was the tomato pie. It was no good at all. There was hardly any crust, few tomatoes and loaded with too much cheese. I could hardly eat it. The crust that was there was burned on the edges. My husband and brother had the chicken fried steak. My husband said that it wasn't very good, tough and parts were inedible. My sister-in-law had the catfish and grits. The portion was gracious and I tasted the fish and thought it was very good. The crust was just right and the fish very meaty and tasty.
I am glad to have this opportunity to let you know of our disappointment because I believe Virginia stopped by our table to ask how things were and I felt badly for her and was too embarrassed to tell her what we thought.

Everything was wonderful, my meatloaf was a bit cold, but the excellent service made up for that.
