Every once in a while, you may want to treat yourself to a nice meal at a fine dining restaurant, whether you want to celebrate a special occasion or a job promotion, mark an anniversary or special date night, or simple enjoy a delicious meal from world-class chefs. South Carolina is home to countless restaurants perfect for the occasion, but one was recently recognized as the best in the state.

According to a list compiled by 24/7 Tempo, the best fine dining restaurant in South Carolina is The Peninsula Grill, a Charleston establishment with a focus on American cuisine. The Peninsula Grill is located at 112 N. Market Street.

Here's what the site had to say about the best fine dining restaurant in South Carolina:

"The most famous dish at this restaurant in the five-star Planters Inn hotel is a dessert — the Ultimate 12-Layer Coconut Cake. There's a lot more than that on the menu, however, at this genteel establishments, with its seagrass flooring, farmland wall murals, and lantern-lit courtyard. Crab soup, lobster prepared three ways (ravioli, tempura, and sautéed), rosemary short rib with sweet potato hash, and a whole red snapper are examples of the savory fare."

To determine its list, 24/7 Tempo looked at reviews and ratings on local, regional and state sites and "[extrapolated] a shortlist of establishments that fit the fine-dining bill." The list includes eateries that run the culinary gamut from sushi bars and French restaurants to steakhouses and establishments with fixed-price menus.
