Very fresh food, some ppl at the table loved their ribs and duck. I ordered the gnocchi special which wasn't too great. But the scallops app was perfect. Michael was a great server as well and made our friend's birthday memorable! The dessert was incredible, like a caramel waffle cone deconstructed with ice cream.

My family and I live in Charleston and always support Middleton Place through a member ship. The gardens are beautiful and the best place in Charleston to walk bar none. We regularly visit the restaurant for lunch and dinner but lately the quality and taste of the food has not been up to previous standards. I am unsure why maybe... More

Don't get me wrong - This is a wonderful place to eat. Though, there were a few issues with this place. We had decent service, came by once in a while. Our waitress was very helpful while she was with us, understanding she was very busy. All of us got the Southern Sampler Luncheon. There were plenty of selections to... More

We came here for dinner. Reservations recommended. The food was delicious! I got the sustainable seafood dish and orange sorbet for dessert. They also have delicious bread although they only bring you one piece.

We toured everything until we got hungry. Restaurant had a 30-40 minute wait for a table but was worth it! (It's also the only restaurant close around!). But food and service was great!!!

We decided on a late lunch at 2:30 pm instead of dinner. We opted to try their buffet for $22. We wanted to be able to sample a variety of low country food. The buffet included a non alcoholic drink . It did not include a dessert. The food was good and we enjoyed it very much. Southern fried chicken,... More

This little place on the grounds of the Middleton Place is actually quite nice. The prices are very reasonable given the location and lack of option. Waitress we had was very nice.

We were delighted with our lunch at Middleton. We were not expecting a lunch of this quality. The best She-Crab soup I have ever had. We didn't have dessert but they looked very good. Quick service as well.
