    Ideal for a romantic meal for two. The menu tends toward gamier options like antelope loin with chick pea barigoule, olive oil cured olives and feta, a nod to the region's hunting traditions. Read more

    Now this is the place to go in Charleston. This is the top notch sexiest place. It's in the rear of the Wentworth mansion. All the guest and workers are dressed up. The food is more towards game.

    What a meal! Go with the win pairing. It's worth it, up until their specialty port. Too raisin-y for my taste. Menu changes, but if they happen to have the beef, plain as it seems, go with it!

    Definitely a good restaurant. Go with a larger party and you can get the room to yourselves! Desserts! You have to save room for one... Maybe two. That. Good.

    After visiting Middleton Place, Penelope went to Circa 1886 for Plantation Rice Rolls. A nod to Charleston's past, made from rice flour & served with whipped olive oil. A delicious starter.

    If you haven't been you really should go! It's amazing. The antelope is fantastic as well as any of the seafood.

    We went for a three course meal. Everything was excellent. Best for dates and special occasions.

    The Carolina gold rice is the best rice in Charleston, which is why it’s on our list of The Tastes That Make the City: Charleston. Read more

    Expensive but the food was amazing--sweetbreads and halibut were winners. Try the Night Blossom cocktail straight up with the 'dirty ice' on the side to add as you wish.

    The shrimp and grits is delicious as is the grilled cheese. Very inventive.

    Our menu changes with the season, but antelope is a permanent fixture. This summer Chef Marc Collins dreamed up an Antelope Schnitzel preparation. So delicious.

    Lamb was awesome. So was the antelope and the rabbit.

    If you get nothing else in winter '10-'11, get the pear souffle. I'll be back weekly for a cocktail and this until it's off the menu.

    Very good, but not great. Entree lacked flavor, but salad and dessert were delicious. Our server Peter was excellent.
