Stopped by for the famous coconut cake and it did not disappoint. Sat at the bar and had it with coffee as a great way to end an evening.

We celebrated our anniversary dinner here. The server, Delia, was hilarious, and she provided outstanding service. The food was tremendous, and it was a 4 star dining experience. Our best meal over the long 4-day weekend.

We wanted to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary at a special restaurant and looked to Relais and Chateaux offerings for a memorable dining experience for our weekend celebration. Sadly, Peninsula Grill was our least favorite culinary experience of the trip - we expected more from a restaurant with R&C ratings. While the staff was attentive, the service is rushed. Upon...

The Peninsula Grill was fantastic. It is located in the Market Street area of Charleston. The food was fantastic. I tried the Filet and my wife ordered the Sheep's Head (fish) special.
