Haute cuisine and high spirits. Steaks and chops, fish and oysters, champagne and lobster. And proper cocktails, served with style each evening by chef/partner Robert Carter and staff. The atmosphere is sophisticated and clubby, not formal.

Walls are covered in rich velvet with antique cypress woodwork,19th-century oil paintings and contemporary renderings of local plantation life. Beyond the room are views of the lush Garden Courtyard and reflecting pool.

Experience the acclaimed fare of four-star Peninsula Grill.

Frommer's Review

There's an old Southern saying about "country come to city." This is one case where "city has come to country." The Peninsula Grill, in the historic Planters Inn, has caused quite a stir in the gastronomic world -- not just in Charleston, but also around the country. Quaint and quiet, the setting has a 19th-century charm unlike any other restaurant in Charleston. The kitchen does a marvelous job of bringing new cuisine to an old city without compromising the delicacies that have made dining in Charleston famous. The menu changes frequently. You might start with a delicious lobster and corn chowder, or butternut squash soup. Worthy of your palate are such dishes as the roasted venison chops with roast-garlic sweet-potato gratin, or the bourbon-grilled jumbo shrimp with Low Country hoppin' John and lobster-and-basil-infused hush puppies. Even the New York Times and Bon Appetit have praised "the ultimate coconut cake," based on a recipe from the chef's grandmother.
