Great food!We went during restaurant week where you had three courses for $30.00.The crab soup was very creamy and had plenty of crab in it. The steak was a little on the small size but very tender.The chocolate Cheesecake was dreamy.We ate in the bar but were given very good service. We recommend making reservations ahead of time.

A bit pricey but the atmosphere... More

Had a great meal at 82 Queen. I enjoyed the scallops on a bed of grits and succotash. I would definitely order that again . The she crab soup was great. The pecan pie was just ok.

The way this restaurant is organized is several small dining rooms and an outside garden. It was pouring down rain, so the outside garden was not an option. We actually had one of the dining rooms practically to ourselves as we were early (5:30). We have a very personable waiter, Wendell, who attended to our service promptly but allowing for... More

We had not been to 82 Queen and decided to try it during restaurant week (Sept 2014).

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.
