best lobster roll hands down!

Wonderful eclectic lunch menu. I had the lobster roll with broccoli salad and it was probably the best meal I had in Charleston. My husband had the chicken salad and it was also very good. Service was good although they were busy. We sat outside. Definitely recommend!

I went on Wednesday to Blossom with my friend DeAnn. We enjoyed booked peanut hummus and fried artichoke hearts. DeAnn indulged in mussels. We both thought the food was delicious! Our server was new, his name was Ben. However, he was wonderful! Last time, our server was Dee Dee (Megan), who happened to be the shift leader. Everything was excellent... More

Ate here a couple of weeks ago--enjoyed everything I ordered--artichoke bites (yummy!), chicken sandwich (thought it was excellent & would def order again). My husband felt the menu was limited--he ended up ordering the shrimp appetizer (said was good) and the wedge salad. He thought the salad was just okay--but to be fair--prob should've ordered something different--just wasn't in the... More

Great food. My brother had the shrimp and grits plus tuna tartar; he loved it. My sister had the fried chicken; she loved it and I thought it looked delicious. My sister and I split a salad and the wood-fired flatbread. The flavors were spot-on. We had a bit of wine and our server was very accommodating and friendly.

The menu and drink selection was fantastic, especially if you're into wine. However, non-winos won't be disappointed. The food and service were good, but not amazing. I'd go back with friends if they wanted to go, but not if it was a solo/ date choice. The main reason is that it was so loud in the dining room. We noticed... More

Blossoms is a great place to eat! We have had lunch there many times... taking family and friends there for lunch while sightseeing in Charleston. The food is always great... the service is excellent and when it is not too hot... request the outside patio tables. The fried green tomatoes are excellent... but you can't go wrong with almost anything... More

We chose Blossom for our actual anniversary dinner, given its ratings here, the menu, and the overall vibe. We were not disappointed. They started us off with champagne flutes for the occasion, which was a nice touch. My wife was craving some fried chicken and liked hers a lot; she was also impressed with her wine. I got a flatbread... More

This was our first meal in Charleston. We had lunch here shortly after arrival. Everything was fresh and delicious and our server was super friendly and efficient. Blossom set the bar high for dining during our stay in Charleston!

My husband and I ate there one Sunday afternoon. We'd been strolling up and down East Bay Street and reading the menus of the different restaurants trying to decide where we'd like to stop. We picked Blossoms because the food sounded great and the prices were reasonable. We were so very pleased with our choice!! We really enjoyed the Beef... More
