A great experience

It was restaurant week in Charleston. I made reservations online through Open Table. Three course meals were offered throughout the week at many establishments for $30 per person. I chose 82 Queen rather randomly after viewing menu selections; they had a roast pork tenderloin entree which is one... read more

Once seated on the lovely outdoor patio (with our 12# dog), we were immediately greeted by manager John with a bowl of water for Mulligan and menus. Greg, our waiter, provided humor and service with a smile. Drinks, apps and salads in the shelter of the trees and charleston architecture made for a memorable lunch. Presentation and taste were delicious.... More

Although a bit pricy, the food and service are totally worth it at this amazing restaurant. Renowned for their She Crab Soup, which is a must have, 82 Queen does not disappoint in any way. The food is phenomenal, the service is top-notch and the atmosphere does not disappoint.

The restaurant was recommended by our tour guide as one of her favorite restaurants in Charleston. She was so right! We began our meal with the Fried green tomatoes, She crab bisque and baked brie with pecans and maple syrup, all were delectable! Our main entrees were grilled pork chops, a chicken dish with andouille sausage, sweet potato all perfectly... More

What a pretty restaurant! Delicious Low Country food. Nice wine list. They are famous for their she crab soup and now I know why! Also noteworthy is the chopped salad and tomato pie. No one could finish their entree. The portions were huge. Definitely going to come back!

When we were at a hip bar for lunch, we asked the bartender and waitress which restaurant they could recommend, and they told us to go to 82 Queen with "They make great she-crab soup daily." And they were right. We also tried fried oyster salad, fried green tomatoes, and jambalaya. They were all delicious. And staff was very friendly.

Classic southern kitchen with good service. We were here on a cold winter day, which is a pity since the restaurant seems to have a lovely garden / backyard which seems a nice ambient. Shrimp and grits, crab cakes , etc all ok, however not outstanding. Good selection of beers
