We visited 82 Queen during Restaurant Week and found the food selection for the event quite good. We loved our server who was chatty but efficient and the team effort in serving our food was outstanding. Our meals were hot, the food quality excellent. And, although we were seated upstairs, initially by ourselves, the atmosphere grew cozier as other patrons... More

We first ate at 82 Queen back in the 1990's and have been talking about it ever since. Last week we returned and were not disappointed. Their bbq shrimp and grits are wonderful, as is their She Crab soup.

We celebrated our friends' Anniversary here during our Restaurant Week visit. They had a good selection on the menu although they do limit you to the RW menu. We were seated in the courtyard which was lovely. Service was good and the food was very good. The chocolate cheesecake was crazy-good!

My daughter and I visited during restaurant week. We were seated in the courtyard which is lovely, with live trees and lights. It would be a great romantic date place. I had the shrimp and grits and the she crab soup. Loved both items. The portions were small however, it made room for desert. I had the Lemoncella marscapone and... More

We visited Charleston during restaurant week – which gave us an opportunity to save a bit on a restaurant bill. The only downside to visiting during restaurant week was that the menu choices and portion sizes were small. My entrée was “surf and turf” (not what I think they called it), which included a small steak and one scallop. Granted,... More

I was with my family for a small intimate wedding. The reception was lovely and elegant at 82 Queen. We were on the patio outside and everyone ordered off their menu. Everyone just raved about their dishes and we all shared a bite or two, so I tasted a few dishes. I ordered Gumbo and it was a whole chicken... More

The food was pretty good. It was a bit pricy but good. The fried macaroni and cheese was good. The service was very good.

We were in Charleston for restaurant week, so we did not get the full menu. But what we had was excellent. Jumbalaya spiced perfectly. Interesting southern salad. Rich but very tasty chocolate cake. People could not have nene nicer..

We arrived 5 minutes prior to our 7:30 reservation. Then all the 7:15pm reservation people who arrived 20 to 30 minutes late for their reservation were seated. So we waited 45 minutes and gave up. The hostesses seating people could care less since there were many walk in requests. If you are willing to wait an hour for your table... More
