Celebrating Lowcountry cuisine for 32 years. 82 Queen continues to reinvent the traditional South using fresh, local ingredients and modern takes on the classics. The seasonal menus feature authentic Lowcountry cuisine from award-winning she-crab soup to Lowcountry jambalaya and shrimp and grits, all served with gracious hospitality. Enjoy lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch in 19th-century dining rooms or in the brick courtyard underneath a breathtaking Southern magnolia tree. Southern Living and Wine Spectator awards confirm the restaurant as one of the finest dining establishments in the heart of downtown Charleston. Long live the Queen.

Very nice food and ambiance

Enjoyed the food immensely - tasting from each dish was a pleasure....also enjoyed the fact that a conversation could be had without shouting.

Talk about fine dining. WOW!! I found 82 Queen when I first arrived in this area and have been many times for many occasions; birthdays, brunches, dinners, etc, .I am never disappointed in the excellent service, the great food, and the ambiance, which is fantastic. I love to dine in the garden area among the flowers and trees in the... More

82 Queen was one of the early really nice fine dining, and expensive, restaurants in Charleston. With all the new and awesome great fine dining establishments, I had not been here in many years. I finally went and was delighted. It is still great. We started with fried green tomatoes topped with pimento cheese and it was so good. We... More

We went on a Sunday at 12pm and there was no lunch, only brunch. Once we got past that expectation, all was good. We ordered the appetizer "Green Tomatoes", which came with pimento cheese and it shattered the taste buds with an incredible flavor. The bbq shrimp and grits were fabulous as well as the low country breakfast bowl! The... More

Stopped in after a ghost tour (fun, do one) for a drink and some light bar food. One other table in the bar and the bartender couldn't be bothered to take our order. Moved and ordered from the bar, and she was curt, slamming things behind the bar, and muttering about who knows what. She crab food was ok, but... More

We arrived early for our reservation and were seated promptly. Our waiter was nice and efficient, but the food was just average, almost boring. I had the crab cakes, a dish I often order when we go out, they were dull and flavorless. My husband had scallops, which were just ok. The presentation was uninspired. Eat elsewhere.

Terrible. In town for business and have eaten here for the last two nights (don't ask). It's not that I'm not grateful to my corporate friends who have taken me to eat here, but the food is terrible. Best thing is the biscuits. She crab soup is good (sherry topping the best part) but the food is terrible. Cold, dry,... More

We ate at 82 Queen on a Saturday night and it was terrific. We were in Charleston for our 30th wedding anniversary. She Crab Soup was great and a must-have app. I had Shrimp and Grits for main course - unbelievably good! Service was very good and atmosphere delightful. We ate inside because it was a little too warm that... More

82 Queen is a beautiful restaurant with an outdoor courtyard that you can sit in for dinner. In the winter they have heaters and in the summer they have fans that keep the air circulating. We have been there several times and this time we ate inside. The she-crab soup was the best soup I have ever had!!!

This bar was quiet but friendly. A great stop to refresh and have a drink. Bartenders were friendly.
