Description: High Steppin' Lowcountry Living. It's a feeling of warmth and celebration...
High Steppin' Lowcountry Living. It's a feeling of warmth and celebration that begins the moment you step inside. You'll find it in our gracious, knowledgable servers, expertly prepared dishes and a remarkable cocktail and wine program. From conversation and laughter in our bar to our stylish dining rooms of heart pine floors and antique brick, you'll come to understand true Charleston hospitality. That is, there's always cause for celebration - of our neighbors, our food and drink and each other. It's our great pleasure to share it with you.

Dined for the first time at High Cotton to celebrate our anniversary. Can't say enough about it. Great service, wonderful food and fun environment . It is pricey but worth it.

Went here for a nice night out with the wives. Food was great; service a little slow. Very eclectic and diverse menu, with something for everyone. The antelope carpaccio was a great (and delicious) surprise and the pork porterhouse made me feel like I was eating like a local. Great local beers on tap, and a special for the night... More

My husband and I enjoyed the food and service here, but missed most of the jazz entertainment we were looking forward to (our reservations were for Saturday at 9:30 p.m. as we were unaware the live music ended at 10 p.m.). My hubby had the shrimp and grits (which he claimed were the best he had during our Charleston trip)... More

The food, service and ambiance were amazing! The halibut rated a "best ever" comment. The shrimp and grits were also excellent.

We went as a group of 5 on Saturday evening. The food was very good. The strawberry salad was fresh and tasty. Fried oysters also a hit. We went for the shrimp and grits and were not disappointing. The only drawback was the service. They forgot to bring bread to the table...but whenit did arrive ut was piping hot. All... More

The service was wonderful. The food-just OK. The onion soup was lukewarm. The rack of lamb chops was quite tough. The mixed berry cobbler was very good.
