Charleston Top Dining

Charleston Dining

We are blessed to have an incredible selection of restaurants, cafes and great nightlife choices. We've selected a few of our favorites that we recommend to our friends and family.

Charleston's dining scene has a very formal and southern feel to it which is to be expected as the city is located in the upper south. Many of the dining places offer unique foods from world-class chefs that have won many awards for their cooking. Be sure to try as many places as you can as none are exactly alike. All of the foods have some different kick or twist to them.

Peninsula Grill

Charleston Dining

Peninsula Grill exhibits the heart and soul of Charleston. The historic and rustic feel to the restaurant never disappoints and seems to draw huge crowds with its luring image and scenery. Peninsula Grill offers dining inside, outside, and in their champagne bar, and all areas of their restaurant have different and unique atmospheres. The dining room is much more formal compared to the courtyard dining they offer. Although both are formal, one is much more romatic and fun. The champagne bar is for a patron who enjoys an upbeat atmosphere to compliment their drinks and meal. Peninsula Grill offer an extensive wine list that can compliment the meal of your choice as they have a variety of foods on their menu. They also have an outstanding dessert menu for those who have a sweet tooth. Reservations are highly encouraged as both visitors and locals will flood to this eatery making it difficult to get a table just by walking in.
