Muse was recommended to us by a local and it does not disappoint. The restaurant is located in what appears to be a restored house - vintage Charleston - and the interior is charming and inviting. I had the boneless, flash fried sea bass and my husband had the osso bucco. Both were delicious, and the sea bass was quite... More

The staff make this place really good. The building is interesting and they were happy to show us around. Service was quirky. The food was fine but some of the starters needed a bit of a kick. Would like to try again and choose something different.

We tried this place for the first time this weekend. Our friends had been before, so we went with them. It is located off the main streets, and is in a quiet location. The house it is located in is 19th century. We were quickly seated. They have a very nice menu with several seafood dishes. Meats are available also.... More

My husband and I had a lovely dinner at Muse last night - our first night and first trip to Charleston. Muse has an outdoor, fully covered courtyard (sheltered, so we were not cold), with fresh flowers and candles on each table. There is also a nice bar (12-16 seats? Intimate) in the front room downstairs, an intimate back room... More

I was lucky enough to visit Muse with friends during a visit to Charleston and we were really impressed. I love unique food and "one of a kind" restaurants and Muse was a delight It is located in a building from the mid-1800s and it's brimming with character. We were hungry so we all started with appetizers and agreed to... More

We stopped in late (9 30pm) Wednesday night as it was around the corner from our hotel. We sat on the porch and enjoyed a bottle of wine from a good list. I had the shrimp and polenta and my husband had the bolognese. Both were very good and just right portion sizes. We would definitely go back especially in... More

We had reservations on a weekend night at 7:00pm. When we showed up at 6:55 the place was empty except for one couple on the patio and one guy at the bar (no bartender). No hostess. We could hear people talking in the back but still waited five minutes before we were greeted. The interior of the restaurant smelled beyond... More

Restaurant is a little tired looking (ok, more than a little tired looking) but the food and service were excellent. The bartender was great in suggesting wines with tastings upon request. Amazing wine list by the glass. We did pre- theater dinner and they were very respectful of our time needs.

My husband and I went here for dinner. It is in a older home with little rooms that are romanic and have open rooms too. The food was wonderful. I had the crispy walleye and husband had veal. Good choices on the menu. The service was great and would go here again.

Our favorite night spot to drop in for a few drinks with our favorite bartender, Donnie. Menu/food is very good as well. Cool spot :)
