Peninsula Grill

112 N Market St, Charleston, SC 29401, USA

The Peninsula Grill is located in the Planters Inn hotel on often-boisterous Market Street, but the restaurant couldn’t be more peaceful. Guests are seated on a lovely green and cobbled courtyard or inside a hushed and romantic dining room. Enjoy the classic seafood-forward menu—lobster three ways (ravioli, tempura, and sauteed in butter) is a favorite, if rich, starter, as is the she-crab soup. For main courses, the ultratender pan-roasted sea scallops in lobster broth draw raves from regulars, but save room for the Ultimate Coconut Cake, one of the most famous desserts in Charleston—so beloved that it can be shipped overnight, if you get a sudden craving.
