Peninsula Grill is probably the most beautifully appointed restaurant in Charleston. The food is excellent and the wines are both interesting and well chosen. Service is attentive and friendly, and I can't praise Ryan, one of the sommeliers, too highly. Expensive and worth it!More

We look forward to your visit. We request business casual attire when dining at Peninsula Grill. Dining at the bar is more relaxed as is the courtyard. Cheers, Ryan

I didn't see any when we were there in November but it was also nearly 80 degrees during the day then. I would expect they either do have heaters or they don't open the patio if its too chilly.
