Wide menu, great service

A group of 14 had lunch here. Service was prompt and flawless. The menu appealed to a variety of tastes. Everyone was pleased with their meal. I had a spinach salad with grilled salmon. The daily special chicken sandwich was also delicious - as were the fries. Give this restaurant a try.

We are on a "foodie indulgence" tour of the Southeast, and Blossom was one of the highlights. This is a relaxed restaurant with great service and outstanding cuisine. Some of the highlights were she-crab soup, fried oysters (ask for the sauce on the side, since it can overwhelm the delicate seafood), and duck confit. Greens were delicious and plentiful. Our...

We made a last minute change in our dinner plans and went to Blossom. Dinner was excellent. We had the Crab Cake and the Seafood Chowder. Both dishes were well prepared and very tasty. We also enjoy the fried artichoke hearts as an appetizer. No need to worry about walking away hungry. Complementary parking is right next door, which is... More

We went to Blossom for dinner. We had great service and the food was fabulous! I would recommend this to any family and my kids loved the children's menu. She crab soup was wonderful and the pizza was awesome!

Pizza was bangin!!! NY strip was cooked perfect the polenta was bland. Seared tuna was awesome and the coconut rice was yummy with leeks and peppercorns on top. The calamari needs some work.

We reserved our table through opentable. The food and service were fabulous. My partner and I moved away from Charleston in 1985, but return twice a year just to try out the new offerings. Blossom is certainly one of the best in a city where you can blindly throw a rock and hit a great restaurant. The ambiance is terrific,... More

We tried dining here a few years ago, but the wait was over an hour. This time, due to the freezing temps we were able to just walk right in! The service was great and the food was exceptional! I got the sword fish special and my wife got the salmon. We also got the fried calamari which was delicious... More

Went here during the southeastern wildlife exposition weekend- a crazy time in Charleston. The place was packed with families and people out for brunch. The service was phenomenal and the waitress was extremely patient with a large group that couldn't make up their mind. The windows all around the dining area make for a bright atmosphere. Well worth a visit... More

Blossom has a very well done menu, and is a favorite with locals because it is not quite as pricey as some of its nearby neighbors. Excellent service and always a pleasant greeting and wait staff. Have eaten there many times and never had an item I did not like.
