Amanda at the bar was wonderful!! She provided us with information about sights in the area and recommendations on the food. On Amanda's recommendation I ordered the short rib special and it was exceptional. My husband ordered the steak and asked if they sold the sauce, he wanted a bottle to take home. We would definitely eat here again when... More

We visited 82 Queen for a nice fancy dinner. Food and service was fantastic! The crab cakes were excellent and the portion was just my size. My boyfriend had the BBQ shrimp and grits, which I luckily had a bite of and they were out of this world good! The atmosphere was so relaxing and beautiful. Overall enjoyed every bit... More

Very impressive restaurant! The waiter was very helpful with wonderful suggestions, our dinners were outstanding. Not only is the food great but the atmosphere is just as impressive. If weather permits, I would recommend outside seating. Highly recommend 82 Queen!

Hubby and I stopped in after a 2 hour hot and sweaty Charleston walking tour. The air conditioning was cold and Brandy welcomed us to join her at the bar. We started by sharing a cup of their award winning she crab soup. I ordered the fried green tomato sandwich on toasted jalapeño bread with a side of perfectly cooked... More

Food is fantastic! Fun, creative dishes with great flavor. Nice wait staff and great atmosphere! Recommend visiting for lunch to save a little money (although it can still be pricey). This is a great place to plan a visit to and worth the extra funds.

I loved everything about brunch here. Be warned though that the breakfast foods have seafood in them. Not many options without the seafood. I had the bbq chicken breast with fried mac and cheese and collard greens. Delicious!

We have been seated all over this restaurant, but upstairs in the back was a new experience for us. It seemed that it took a little long for our drinks to arrive, but again, we were upstairs in the back. That being said, our drinks, appetizers and meals were excellent. We had the fried okra, mushroom ravioli and clams linguini.... More

A Charleston jewel. Be sure to sit under the stars and enjoy one of the very best meals in the City. This is perhaps the most romantic restaurant I've had the joy to dine at
