Delicious Date Night Dinners in the Lowcountry

The Lowcountry has beautiful spots for a romantic (and tasty) date night. Take a look at these Charleston restaurants for a delicious dining experience!

Peninsula Grill

This is a fine dining experience for sure – from the moment you walk in the door, you’ll feel special! According to Forbes Travel Guide, “Peninsula Grill has the sophisticated feel of an urban eatery without losing sight of its Southern charm. The menu is inventive, offering boldly flavored dishes spiced up with Lowcountry accents like collard greens, hushpuppies, grits, and black-eyed peas. There’s also a champagne bar menu of decadent little treats like oysters, lobster, foie gras, caviar, and duck pâté.”

In other words, it’s fancy, romantic, southern, and delicious!
