225 East Bay St. (Downtown)
Lunch and Dinner (daily)
Upscale dining at the Market Pavilion with specialties like a 40 oz. Prime Porter House for two, family style vegetables, plus seafood, chops, salads, and oysters on the half shell.
They have the largest menus in town, a good two feet tall. The topside cocktail bar on the roof is worth a trip by itself, and the oversized chops leave little to be desired. Few who can afford a trip will leave disappointed. From foie gras and five-pound lobsters cracked tableside to escargot and the favorite tuna tower, almost everything about Grill 225 is fancy and over the top: the white-jacketed service, the beautifully private booth seating that encircles your whole crowd, and the signature Prime steaks that come crisply seared from a super-heated broiler specially constructed for the job. —Jeff Allen, Dish (Summer 2012)

nobody says... Overpriced and never changing. I used to work here a few years back and nothing has changed. Demetri is really good at sitting in the back garage smoking cigs and talking on the phone. And for the $20 cream d' crab app they use lump crabmeat out of a can. I wish I took a picture of this in the kitchen..Theres better steakhouses in Charleston!! ★★★★★
jackoats says... Where has this place been all my life. Awesome food, great service, and they let you enjoy the food. I love prompt attentive service that does not interfere with enjoying the meal. A true pleasure. I live in town and plan on going back this weekend and staying there. It is rare that a place this expensive lives up to the reputation. i will tell my friends and they willl love me. ★★★★★
