"We were staying at Charleston Place and ready for dinner. We walked out the hotel doors and there it was right across the street. We were seated right away at a large table in the back and greeted right away by our server. The kids were hungry and their food decision was easy so we put their order in while we decided what the rest of us wanted. A few quick minutes later, the chef brought us the kids meals! Impressive and amazing. The kids loved it!
