We had a late lunch, so we ended up just having a glass of wine and burger/appetizers. Our server was so helpful in recommending the perfect wine for my husband. His burger was very good, and I had the steak quesadillas, which were good as well. A very enjoyable evening!

After a disappointing anniversary dinner at a Charleston downtown restaurant we went to the Pavilion Bar for dessert and drinks. We ended having a memorable anniversary thanks to the Pavilion Bar. Service was attentive and timely. The server treated us as if were the only customers. Food was delicious and the raspberry mojito is delicious-- highly recommend the raspberry mojito.... More

Off on my own shopping for the day, looked up and saw umbrellas on the top of this lovely hotel and thought that looks like lunch to me. Great service and a sauce that complimented the crab to perfection. We tried to go up for a light dinner and wine later in the week, but it started to rain. Please... More

The view was spectacular. The local brew was really good. Not sure about the food as we got sticker shock at the prices. We decided to go down to get some real seafood at a fraction of the cost. But the view alone is worth a visit.

Food was good, nothing special. Wait staff a little snobbish. Tables need to be cleaned wth disinfectant as birds were often eating off plates that were not attended . Kinda gross

The view is nice. The food is terrible, it's all frozen. The drinks are mediocre at best. The servers were average. There was odd music playing. You dine with Sun bathers. Worst of all, it's over priced. This place should be so much better in a town with such great food.

Can only speak to the view, vibe, and drinks. Didn't eat but the burgers that kept coming out looked awesome :) The rooftop was beautiful. We didn't have reservations and weren't staying at the hotel - just walked straight up around 6:30pm - and were seated at a great table for a couple of pre-dinner cocktails on a Saturday night....
