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.

First all me to apologize for your experience at the Pavilion Bar. I must also address a few of your points. We are the premier Rooftop Restaurant & Bar in Charleston with some of the best views of the city and harbor. I am so pleased you enjoyed the view. All of our food is made to order and fresh,...

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....

The Pavilion Bar Roof top in Charleston, SC has great views, excellent service and great food. Our server, Shannon, gave exceptional service and was a wealth of information. This bar has many tables as well as bar space, good music and great view of the river, parts of Charleston and a great place to watch a sunset. We went back... More

A must see when you're in Charleston, SC. This was our second visit and it was even better than the first time. Ask for Levi!!! His service and an incredible personality made for a great evening out for the wife and I.

My husband and I stopped for midday drinks at the Pavilion Bar. This chic bar has a great view of the city and the atmosphere is very relaxing. However I do think the cocktails are a bit overpriced. My mojito was $15.00. Which, in my humble opinion is a bit on the high side. Regardless, it was worth a visit!... More

The Pavilion had great views, and the service was awesome. Levi took great care of us and told us all the attractions in town we should see and avoid. Next time we're in town, we'll definitely be back!

The Pavilion Bar is where I love to do lunch with a girl buddy or to dress up for cocktails and apps early evening. Late night is sceney but I leave it for the 20 and 30-somethings, content with people watching and socializing before the moon comes up over the harbor, the Ravenel Bridge and the columned Customs House.
