We had lunch here a couple of times recently. I've had the oyster slider sandwich which was good, but could have used a couple more oysters and less Hawaiian rolls. More recently, we tried the lobster roll which was a small sandwich with a side of sea salt chips. The lobster was cooked well and served on a lightly toasted... More

The ambiance is beautiful, and staff is very friendly, and the food is always to die for. Just a wonderful experience every single time. This is my favorite restaurant in Charleston and it just makes me feel at home every time.

Blossom is centrally located in the Historic District. Many examples of Low Country cooking. Shrimp & grits were delicious as were the fried green tomatoes. She Crab soup & the flounder were also excellent. They offer some items as small,plates which is nice. Our waiter was very pleasant although not particularly knowledgeable. The Blossom house Chardonnay was reasonably priced but... More

Overall our first dining experience at Blossom was very good. We had a 6 PM reservation, arrived about 10 minutes early, were seated right away and our server came to our table very quickly. She returned when we had decided on drinks and then took our appetizer order when our drinks arrived. While waiting for our appetizers to arrive, she... More

The Monti Cristo special was much less than special. Two of our friends had to send back the Duck Confit scramble. When it was remade and returned, they weren't any better. The waiter attempted to make things right by providing complimentary desserts and glasses of champagne but the damage was done and brunch took much longer than we anticipated. The... More

Great atmosphere and food. Wait staff service was top notch. The bartender was great but he needed help the night we were there. I would definitely visit again. The outdoor seating looked inviting but the weather was iffy so we sat inside.

I've been to Blossom many times, but not in the last 5 years. I brought my wife here last night for her birthday and was extremely disappointed in how much it has declined. The service was horrible. The waiter was very amature, didn't check on us unless waved down, forgot to put in our order for our appetizer, and never... More

The food and atmosphere are wonderful her at Blossoms. We have eaten lunch and dinner here and the service and food was excellent. You have to eat on the garden patio, spacious, well appointed with flowers and ivy on the 8 foot walls. Don't miss the Free Parking! it's a real plus and will add to the enjoyment of your... More

A group of 10 of us ate here on a Monday night. The service was very good. he Appetizers probably were better than the main courses. Especially good was the Fried Green Tomatoes and the Fried Oysters. Main Course of Crab Cake stuffed flounder was good but not great.

Pros: local ingredients, fried green tomatoes, service, location, late hours Cons: so popular that unless you book really early, you'll eat late (our reservations were at 9:30pm)
