Restaurant Review: Morgan Creek Grill, Isle of Palms, SC

Happy FRIDAY! Today was a very nice day for me! Only a half day at work, food shopping, and got my hair done! I got a bundle cut off -probably 3 + inches- it feels so healthy! After my hair cut, Josh and I went to the Morgan Creek Grill on the Isle of Palms (IoP), SC. Josh and I have been planning to try this place for a few weeks now and planned to eat on the upper deck (less expensive, live music, beer specials!) but failed to notice that this past week was the last weekend the upper deck was open (whoops). Instead we enjoyed slightly more expensive food in the main dinning room.

Erica's Review:


The location of this restaurant is wonderful-right on the water! Unfortunately, it was pretty dark out by the time we got to dinner so we didn't enjoy the view as much as we would have during the day/summer time. For an appetizer, we ordered the calamari. I am not a big calamari fan but I know Josh loves it (plus I knew he was REALLY hungry), so I had a few nibbles. It was just ok. For dinner, I ordered the Charleston She Crab soup and a Morgan Creek Salad. The soup was eh, there wasn't nearly enough crab in it and I think they were a little heavy handed on the sherry. The salad was pretty good (but if you make a bad salad you shouldn't be allowed to be open). All in all it was pretty mediocre. I wouldn't come back to the dining room at this restaurant, but def want to give the upper deck a try!

Josh's Review:


Destined for failure (being the third restaurant)....

False advertising is for ShamWow, not a pier-style restaurant. No deck seating. Filet entree prepared differently than website claimed. Liars.

Cons: Aside from being liars, my aunt Nancy (who can’t make ice water) could have concocted equally complex-flavored calamari appetizers. Horrible parking lot lighting.

Pros: Chicken QPGOJPOCQOPqopwithgocboih (or whatever it was called) (Erica's note: Chicken Saltimboca) was unbelievably delicious. Roasted potatoes and veggies were incredible. Then again, everything with prosciutto is. The drive was scenic – even for an area called “Isle of Palms”

Beer review: Not much to review, Blue Moon is always a great replacement for a disappointing appetizer.

Overall Rating: Pi/8 (or 3.14159265 out of 8)

So there ya have it ;) Hope you're having a nice Friday!
