Deceptively large restaurant in the main area of town. Nice mixture of décor with both booths and tables - also an outside patio. Service was excellent, meal was delicious (I had the salmon). Reservations are certainly recommended as this is one of the more popular restaurants in town.

During our recent visit to Charleston we ate at Blossom's on two occasions. Our first experience was very satisfactory: good food and great service. Regretfully, our second visit was not so good. We ordered the pan seared salmon - it came to our table floating in a watery soup mixture of vegetables and 'thinly' sliced mushrooms. I'd suggest their Southern... More

It's a little odd that all 3 restaurants together on this block are owned by the same hospitality company. It's like a chain, but not. Blossom is supposed to be the one focusing on seafood, but lunch menu also has other sandwiches, flatbreads, salads, etc. Food itself was just fine, no complaints but no memorable. Courtyard area is nice, but... More

Nice restaurant, pleasant staff and inside or outside seating. We dined inside as it was a bit cool. Had a rib special appetiser which was reall y good, my wife had the mussels which she loved and I had the pork loin. Both excellent. Also nice bottle of Zinfandel red. Bill around $100. No complaints at all.

We arrived at 5.30 and were seated straighaway outside in the small courtyard. Our server was very helpful, full of Southern charm. The lump crab cake was scrumptious and the trout was equally delicious. My friend had a Caesar salad and when she asked for grilled chicken to accompany it, it was no problem. Delicous!

Chosen by our Charleston hosts because they never get bored taking guests there as the management change the menu regularly, we were not disappointed - we had drinks at the bar with a great atmosphere and then our waitress took us to our table - the restaurant was busy and buzzing, but service was fast and efficient with a cheerful...

My husband and I had dinner at this restaurant while staying in Charleston recently. We found in on the display in our hotel. This will not be the least expensive place to eat at the but food and wine choices were superb. We had great service. We had arrived a little early for our reservation but sat at the little... More

My wife and I went to the dinner service with reservations at 1730, actually arrived a bit early and was seated right away. The service was outstanding from start to finish. I ordered the BBQ beef short ribs with a collard greens and apple cole slaw over grilled corn bread. I typically don't like cole slaw, but this was amazing.... More
