A breezy venue with fabulous view of Charleston,SC, a light, luscious crab salad and a knock-your-socks off Bloody Mary.

A bit pricey, but well worth it, not only for the view, but the food and drinks are excellent. Enjoy. It's worth it Note: a mixed group of diners, smart casual.

Get into the lift,check out the view and then drink elsewhere. The cocktails we had were not only the worst in Charleston, but ever. The mojitos are a disgrace, basically the weakest sweetest drinks with a sprig of mint thrown in( not muddled ) Anyone who works in there should taste these and tell me I'm wrong, it's a shame...

My husband and I have enjoyed the roof top bar several times. It has a magnificent view of the water and the city. It also has wonderful food as well! I enjoyed a crabcake salad which was mouthwatering delicious, and my husband always opts for the Tuna Tower. For dessert, please try the Carolina Trifle because it will not disappoint.... More

Just went up to this roof top bar for a cold drink, on a hot day.there is a pool on the roof, and lots of young bikini clad women gathered around it. That's a good start for any guy at any age. One of the ladies in our party needed to take a prescription pill, and asked for some crackers,... More

The roof top bar is a great way to see the water and bridge while having a cold drink and bite to eat. My nieces loved it and felt very special. A must.

Visited here with the wife at the beginning of June and was swept right off the floor by the acceptional experience. The food was like something out of a fancy food magazine and the server Jamieson was very friendly to myself and my wife as well. We will be returning to this fine establishment upon our next visit to charleston.

I had a great evening at the Pavilion Bar in Charleston. My server Jamieson provided excellent service and recommended the Tuna Tower and a Pavilion Punch to go along with it. Both were fantastic! I will be returning next time I am in Charleston.

My friends and I had dinner here tonight and I will say this place was my personal favorite of all the restaurants I have visited in Charleston. The menu selection was great and my server Jamieson did an exceptional job as well.

Fantastic rooftop view of the riverfront. Wait staff is very friendly. The hotel pool is also located on the rooftop. Prices were reasonable, but food and drinks were very good. We will definitely visit again.

Take the elevator up to the roof for a drink when the sun goes down. Best view of Charleston. Starts to get crowed late night. We always make it a part of every visit to Charleston.
