Stopped here for a drink and apps after a walking tour. We sat on the sidewalk and ordered from the happy hour menu. I had the red house wine my daughter had the white. Great wines for the price.

I liked everything. The servie was excellent. The food was very good. Our space but small, but it allowed for great conversation after the speaker's presentation.

We have eaten at many restaurants in Charleston. Blossom failed to wow me as many other restaurants in Charleston have. The decor and service are lovely. The food was just OK. Their other restaurant Magnolia is much better.

We basically had snacks for lunch - fried artichoke hearts and the appetizer crab tostadas, which were amazing. Three large spoonfuls of fantastic crab with a tiny bit of sauce and avacado puree on top - just wonderful. Good beer selection.

Blossom, i one of the Hospitality Management Group restaurants (Magnolia's and Cypress round out the group). With a wood fired pizza oven, you can have tasty flatbreads, salads (careful the ceasar is often too salty), and good southern fare. Price is right, selection reasonable, and the soups are as delicious as the flat breads. If you are near waterfront park,... More

This is a great restaurant with a lot of Charleston character. Everyone in our group had a great dining experience. The crab BLT with fried green tomatoes and cole slaw was the best I have had.

The food at Blossom is wonderful. Truly a wonderful place for lunch. I love the calamari and fried green tomato appetizers, both are outstanding. The lobster waldorf salad is excellent. My friend had the lobster roll and he said it was excellent also. The service was very good. It was my mother's birthday and they give her extra service which... More

Beautiful outdoor seating, great creative menu and huge portions -- there is hard to find anything not to like about Blossom. Service was slow, no doubt, but I'll give that a bye as we were in Charleston and enjoying great food with every turn. The huevos rancheros, Blossom Benedict and biscuits were all very good, as was the setting. Creative... More

Have eaten there twice outside, once for lunch and once for dinner. Cute dining area, removed from the street. They do have a gluten free menu but you have to ask for it, they don't post it outside and the waiter and hostess seemed a little annoyed that we had someone in our party that was GF. Be careful as... More
