    The food was not good at all. Reheated French fries and unripe avocado for the avocado toast. The bathroom was dirty. As a local, I will not eat here again. I've tried it once for dinner and once for brunch and it was bad both times. There are a lot of other choices. The only redeeming thing about this restaurant is the wait staff.

    We were a little early on our reservation but was seated immediately. Our waitress could not have been more friendly and attentive. We had cocktails all the way to peach cobbler for desert and everything was delicious. Took a “chicken pulley bone” sandwich home for a dinner snack and it was the best chicken sandwich I’ve ever had. A wonderful Thanksgiving dinner celebration and I can’t wait to go back. Five stars all the way!

    We had a traditional Thanksgiving Day dinner at Virginia's on King. My dinner was the best Thanksgiving meal that I have ever had in Charleston, to date!!! Everything was delicious, from the turkey, to the stuffing and mashed potatoes and topped off with apple crisp. I also had a cup of she-crab soup. The best!!! My spouse (Vegetarian) had the tomato pie and the onion casserole. Both, she really enjoyed. Our server, Courtney, was very attentive. Chief Felix came to our table and we told him how wonderful the meal was.

    Virginia’s on King is a wonderful hidden gym on King St. The food and service are awesome and the location is in the heart of the city. We enjoyed a low-country brunch there on Thanksgiving Day and were very thankful Virginia’s was serving up excellent food and hospitality for our family.

    We asked our waiter to let us enjoy our cocktails and then space out our appetizers and entrees so that we could enjoy the meal. The appetizers came almost immediately. Before we even tasted them, he asked if we were ready for our entrees. Timing of courses definitely needs improvement. We were rushed, not even offered dessert,

    We really enjoyed the dinner. I had the fried chicken. The mac and cheese was among the best I have ever eaten. My nephew had the shrimp and grits which he said was awsome. The pulley chicken sandwhich was just a chicken sandwhich. The wings were good as well. The service was great and the place is very nice in downtown Charelston.

    Great atmosphere and very good food. The drinks are well thought out and prepared. Not for a special occasion per se BUT a great meal especially for smaller parties. Not a large place but that is part of the charm. Feels like you are sitting in someone’s kitchen having homemade food.
