When Peninsula Grill opened in 1997, the handsomely appointed dining room and sophisticated interpretations of Southern cuisine set the bar for dining in Charleston, South Carolina. Heralded by Esquire magazine as one of America’s Best New Restaurants, Peninsula Grill continues to earn recognition from esteemed publications, including The New York TimesSouthern LivingTravel + LeisureWine Spectator and Food & Wine, which named it one of America’s Top 50 Hotel Restaurants.

Dedicated to serving the finest and freshest ingredients sourced locally and globally, the Mobil Four-Star and AAA Four-Diamond-ranked Peninsula Grill remains the Lowcountry’s foremost culinary experience.

Peninsula Grill’s ambiance is supper club sumptuousness with velvet-lined walls in shimmering oyster tones, woven seagrass, and indigenous cypress crown molding that draws the gaze upward toward custom-made chandeliers built to resemble those noted designer Amelia Handegan discovered while touring of Venice, Italy.

Thanks to Charleston’s mild, subtropical temperate climate, Peninsula Grill is delighted to offer seasonal al fresco dining in the Planters Inn Courtyard. Designed by Sheila Wertimer, the landscape architect responsible for Charleston’s most elegant gardens, the Planters Inn Courtyard is an enchanting urban oasis and the most romantic al fresco dining setting in the city. With bluestone and historic Charleston brick, boxwoods, bubbling fountains, and beautiful crepe myrtle trees, Sheila’s goal to “make guests feel like they are in a lovely, unique Southern garden” is a vision come true.

Attire is business casual. It is recommended, but not required, that gentlemen wear a jacket. To provide the highest quality dining experience, cell phones are prohibited inside the restaurant. We ask that you please take calls outside of the dining room.
