Very pleased....

Stopped for a late lunch after a walking tour. Opted to sit inside for some AC rather than eating in their small courtyard. Seated upstairs by a courtyard window which was a very nice spot.

I had been there in the past and loved it so much. It's a really gorgeous place. This was my husband's first visit. While we both enjoyed our food, we weren't blown away with it. It was just good, instead of incredible (like I expected from past visits).

Traditional, low country cooking and it was delicious. The restaurant is moderate size, good/friendly service that matched the meal. The shrimp and grits was so good.

We stopped by after hearing that Chef Steve Stone had returned to 82 Queen! We all had a different dish, as suggested by our fabulous server, Molly. The meal was delicious and we were all very happy that 82 Queen will be the restaurant we want to visit once again!

Came to 82 Queen for brunch with my family and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The outside is gorgeous but we ate in the library because it was too hot outside. The inside seating was nice too. The she crab soup was amazing! I had the crab cake Benedict and it was great.

Our first visit was to the bar side. we had brought friends down and ended down here and I would have to say we were lost and just walked in. We were so blown away we came back down and hard dinner. everything here is perfect. You will not be disappointed.

One of the best restaurants we have experienced! Swordfish was the best I have ever had. The service was exceptional! She-crab soup, what they are famous for, easily lived up to its reputation. When in Charleston, you have to eat here!!!

Friendly staff, great food, nice atmosphere. The only problem was we dined outside and were being eaten alive by mosquitoes. Our server kindly provided bug spray and the visit was much nicer after that! Recommend the sampler platter for an appetizer and also the she crab soup. Also, the burger was exceptional.
