My wife and I ate at this bar when we were visiting Charleston last week. The food was overpriced but good. The view and service are the best part. You can see the Market and Charleston Harbor from the rooftop. Our server was this pretty little Irish girl named Shannon with the cutest dimples! My wife was about to ask... More

I'd like to start off by thanking Shannon, our server for her attentiveness and PATIENCE with us. She and the whole staff were great. This was a great, rooftop experience with a beautiful pool and a view of the bridge. I can't wait to return.

Came here with our nephew, an Air Force captain, for drinks before dinner downstairs. Beautiful views and atmosphere, but our waitress Raquel was awful. Poor attitude, seemed annoyed with us (we were asking for ALCOHOLIC drinks w/ o ice but chilled, etc. We ordered duck nachos for $19+ that were all chips and no meat. Mojito was mostly club soda....

Wonderful Charleston spot to enjoy the evening sunset and have a cocktail. We headed to the Pavilion rooftop bar pre-dinner and enjoyed the atmoshere, the view, the cocktail offerings. Patio rooftop bar mixes in with a small pool and what looked like a very inviting dinner menu. I look forward to heading back to the Pavilion Bar!

You have to visit the Pavilion Bar if you are in Charleston. Take a break from wandering the market area and enjoy a great beverage on the roof. Nice breezes and amazing views from up top. Shannon was super. I'd go back again next time in town.

MUST see when in Charleston. Awesome view from the end of Market Street to the river. Awesome martini menu and some of the friendliest servers in Charleston. I recommend the "Dirty Bird!" The roquefort cheese stuffed olives are incredible!

My husband and I tried the Pavilion Bar based on a recommendation from a friend and it was well worth the pricy drinks and dessert. We split the creme Brûlée, which was cooked/made and plated/presented with perfection. We also got Mojitos which were good. I am pretty specific and particular with my Mojitos so it would take a lot for... More

We visited many bars in Charleston (*cough*in one day* cough*) and this one was my favorite! Things you should know about me: I love rooftop views and cocktails. This place had both. My fiance enjoyed a couple craft beers but there was not as big of selection of craft beers. He thought what they did have was good. The bar... More
