Good Brunch

I'll say good, not great, brunch. We specifically chose this restaurant for Sunday brunch because of the menu appeal. What's a girl gotta do for some chicken & waffles?! The service was verrrrrrry slow, which was surprising since they were relatively dead (for a Sunday brunch?...). The food... read more

Stopped in for brunch after a walking tour of Charleston on a Sunday morning. I was hot, dressed in shorts and sporting an oversized fanny pack for the occasion, but they seated me anyway. The service was prompt and efficient, and the food was great with a huge range of selections available. I looked at a lot of menus before... More

We ate at Blossom as a recommendation on our first visit to Charleston. We had dinner here after eating at Magnolia the first night in town. The service and the food were wonderful. We tried the mussels, the short rib, and the fried green tomatoes. Everything was wonderful- the atmosphere was great as well- we would highly recommend this restaurant.

Hadn't eaten at Blossom in years. It's still up there as one of the nice restaurants in Charleston. Wait staff is very nice and knowledgeable. The facility is lovely and has a peaceful feel. And the food remains very good and not unreasonably priced. I had very good tuna, my wife and sister-in-law said their trout was amazing, and some... More

This is a very cute and cozy place with a great brunch. I had a salmon BLT and can easily say it was the best BLT I've had yet. My partner had the fajita skillet that he thoroughly enjoyed as well. Our server was wonderful and the outside patio was lovely.

Today was my third time at Blossom and again it exceeded my expectations. It is a great spot on East Bay, sister restaurant to Magnolia's. Each time the service, food and pricing have been spot on. Today's visit was a Sunday, so we enjoyed Brunch. I had the chicken and waffle with maple syrup and found it very good. My... More

This was the third of three restaurants in same group (Cypress, Magnolia) I had been to, so had high expectations. Unfortunately, a swing and a miss. We had a server with great energy and attitude, but no support from the house. Once we got our main courses, the food was excellent - especially the seafood. If we had left at... More

We enjoyed our dinner here. If you like fish its a great spot for you. Beautiful atmosphere and free parking located next door. We enjoyed eating here with friends our waitress was very accommodating and patient since we got caught up visiting before we ordered. All our food was delicious grouper, tuna, swordfish and steak. No complaints we had wine... More

Great for brunch. I had the she crab soup, and it was delicious. I also had the brisket and pancakes. Outstanding. The prices are reasonable, and there's plenty of seating and natural lighting. Also, there's a free parking lot adjacent to the building.
