Peninsula Grill

Elegant Southern fare in Charleston
Sitting across the street from the City Market, Peninsula Grill has been a Charleston staple since 1997. With its great location tucked inside the luxurious Planter's Inn, this Four-Star restaurant has the sophistication of an urban eatery without losing sight of its southern charm. The menu is inventive, offering boldly flavored dishes spiced up with low-country accents like collard greens, hushpuppies, grits and black-eyed peas. There’s also a champagne bar menu of decadent little treats like oysters, lobster, foie gras, caviar and duck pâté.
