Was better years ago. Service was forgetful. Food had some amazing bits and some just ordinary. Could do better.

Such a classic, wonderful place. The food is delicious and the staff is so attentive. When I accidentally left my credit card, a staff member literally chased me two blocks down in the heat to return it. Little things matter and I hope Virginia's stays around for many more years to come. It is quintessential Charleston.

Came here on a Sunday morning for brunch and couldn’t have been happier. The food was absolutely amazing; fresh and delicious. Service was outstanding. Best mimosa value I’ve ever had; $17 for a carafe that had 7-8 glasses in total. More than we anticipated for just the two of us, but excellent!

I had the Cheddar/Bacon omelette and my BF has the chicken and eggs. I’ve never tasted chicken so good. Definitely recommend the pulley bone chicken breast if you want something truly spectacular. Food was well prepared and service was quick and friendly. Highly recommend this place for brunch!

Great menu option for relative visiting from out of town. All staff wore face coverings and gloves and were courteous throughout the entire meal. The food came out hot and in a reasonable amount of time from being ordered. We will definitely be back!

Tomato soup was so salty that we couldn’t even eat it and they didn’t take it off the bill after we told the server. The house salad had no flavor at all...tasted like water. The server was very forget. Had to remind her multiple times for things we asked for. I wouldn’t go back.

Octavia our server was wonderful. So helpful and friendly. Attentive but not too much. Our brunch was soooo good! The shrimp and grits so flavorful, the chicken, eggs and biscuit was amazing, pancakes were lite and fluffy, the egg bowl was yummy, the Charleston Cuban was delicious and the crab Benny was so full of crab and tasty. Oh and the Bloody Marys were just the right amount of spicy. All in all a wonderful meal! Highly recommend.

I went totally Southern, fried chicken, collards, grits, banana pudding. Everything was fantastic, bringing back memories of my mom and grandmom's cooking. Staff was great.

Lets start with the good, the Pimento cheese appetizer was very good and enjoyed by all. In general an ok place, but we were seated relatively close to the door and got chills every time the door opened. Service was lackluster. Ordered brunch and found the food to be fairly basic. Would never order the pancakes again. Served luke warm, dry and had to ask for syrup and they give you a tiny bit for 2 plate size cakes. Waiter raved about the home fries and they were good, but plain and serving size was on the small side. Likely won't be a first choice for us in the future.

Warmly greeted when we arrived. Appetizer of pimento cheese, crackers and cucumbers was good - nothing spectacular but solid. Cocktails were good. My husband ordered the chicken fried steak and it was good but the two sides - green beans and mashed potatoes were not not even luke warm - had they been hot they might have been better. I ordered the Tuesday night fried chicken. It was a huge serving of chicken but just OK - nothing great. My sides - collard greens and mashed potatoes - were disappointing. They were served at room temperature and the flavor was just meh. I gave the experience 4 stars because of the service, ambience and value.

Great location, nice smaller size restaurant. Our server was great, kids liked it as well. This is the first time we tried Virginia’s and we’re looking for a more family oriented restaurant that the kids would enjoy as well. On the causal aide as well which was good for them.

Server could not answer basic questions about the menu and how dishes were prepared. Food just OK. Expected a more upscale place that close to Marion Square. Will not be back, many, many other choices.

Food was acceptable - one dish was cold but others were hot to warm. Wait staff, Parker, was very good. Environment was cold - it was cold outside and cold inside! Maybe I would recommend to a friend depending on what they were looking for.

The service was not what I would have expected for a restaurant downtown and the fried chicken had absolutely no flavor. I could have gotten better tasting chicken at a fast food restaurant. Definitely not worth the price.

Good Southern comfort food well done. Fried chicken, chicken pot pie, Cuban sandwich and excellent sides like squash casserole or Mac and Cheese that’s gooey good!

Location is tops, great spot to people (and car) watch.

We were seated quickly. Our waiter was pleasant, however, it took a long time to get our food, which wasn't anything special. My frided green tomatoes were undercooked and my husband's eggs were not served the way he had asked for. Biscuits were good, and coffee very strong, if that's the way you like it. Could hardly here each other with the noise level. Won't go back.
