We really enjoy this place. It is intimate but not crowded. It was Mother's Day and it was a bit busier than we had seen before, but we had a reservation and promptly seated. My wife had the crab cakes with poached eggs and Hollandaise sauce. I had the fried chicken biscuit. I'm not big on crab or Hollandaise sauce, but both were amazing. I will try them myself next time. It was busy but the service was quick and friendly. A little louder than usual, but not overwhelming. This has become our new favorite place in Charleston.

I was extremely disappointed. We’ve been to many restaurants in Charleston and unfortunately Virginia’s is bottom of my
List. The service wasn’t good-very slow and the food was mediocre (at best) for the cost. I would not recommend.

First time here as we were going to a concert at the Charleston Music Hall. It was very convenient to the venue. The food wsd great, especially the sides. The cornbread is like desert and was unlike any cornbread I have ever had. Danielle our server was the best!!

The service was good, efficient. The waitress was attentive and the food came out fast. The food was average. The tables were small and the chairs uncomfortable (for a 8 month pregnant lady).

We enjoyed it very much. They were out of the country fried steak that my wife had her heart set on but the manager worked his magic and had the chef pound out a steak to make my wife's order.

Our waitress Rachel was charming and efficient. That made up for the fact that we were unapologetically seated at a booth for four even though there were five of us and had a reservation.

Food was quite good

Ambiance was a bit run down and pub like

This was our first time eating at Virginia's. The atmosphere in the restaurant was very nice. We ate lunch and the noise level was lower than most restaurants so we could enjoy our conversation. The food was very good-pimento cheese BLT (very large , thick sandwich) and shrimp poor boy. There was a mistake in the order but it was quickly resolved. We would definitely eat there again on future trips to Charleston.

I came here with a group of 6 on a Friday night and they had our table ready and plenty of other open tables! I was surprised at how empty it was for a Friday night and the food was pretty decent. Only serve beer and wine though

Service was slow and inattentive. Even if the kitchen was behind, which it didn't seem to be because there were plenty of available tables, we were rarely checked on and had to ask the server to replenish our water. The food was ok, more of a soft boiled egg on a benedict. Busquit was good, fried steak was chewy. Hashbrowns were average. Overall just underwhelming and disappointed.

Virginia's is a simple, small restaurant which does comfort and southern foods. The chicken and dumplings were good, but not great. The salad with oysters was the same--good, but the arugula was overpowering. It would have been better with more different lettuces mixed in.

This was our first visit to Virginia's on King and we'll be back. The service was excellent, our server was very personable and knew the items on the menu. I got the catfish and grits which was one of the best meals I had in a long time, my husband got the fried chicken, macaroni and cheese and green beans which he thoroughly enjoyed. The food was freshly prepared and arrived steaming hot, everything about our dinner here was great. Very low-key and casual, nothing fancy just a great place to have a wonderful meal.

GET. THE. POUTINE. Super good low country food in a really cool resto. Nice service, good local beer selection, and not too crowded of a space. We did go late on a Saturday so there were some very loud patrons, but it was still worth a visit.

We were celebrating our 28th Anniversary the entire week. The restaurant 's ambiance was nice. The food was delicious. We had the Chicken n Dumplings and hubby had Fried chicken with mac n cheese. The waiter was nice. Oh, the cornbread was good too. Dinner ended with banana pudding. Overall, it was a nice experience. Only issue was the food menu online (fried catfish and a few others) wasn't served at this restaurant to our understanding.

It really was a horrible experience. Our waitress forgot to put in our appetizer order. Then it took 40 minutes to get our main order. Our glasses were always empty. She never came to see if our food was alright. My son's patty melt was inedible. The rest of the food was average at best. I am very disappointed.
