On a recent golf trip to Charleston, one of our group had waited too long to get a reservation at Husk, Fig, The Ordinary, or Charleston Grill (I had only been to Fig), so I called Slightly North of Broad where I had dined many years ago. They were full, but said to try across the street at High Cotton.... More

Always our favorite spot to go for brunch on a Sunday. If you want to live like the locals do, definitely go to High Cotton. Outstanding brunch options, excellent service, classy upscale atmosphere with live jazz music. You cannot go wrong!!

I live in Charleston and know just how lucky we are to have so many fabulous restaurants to chose from. Our evening started about 530 when we decided we would have a drink in the bar, the bartender was slow and unwelcoming. There was one seat at the bar so we were standing, and the bar tender said are y'all... More

Along with the sumptuous brunch menu, it was the charming southern-style ambiance,the friendly service and the live music that turned a simple brunch date into a memorable Charleston experience.

We were in Charleston for a birthday weekend with friends. We started our Friday night at High Cotton. A perfect location on Bay St right in the middle of the action. Yet, once you walk in the door you get a calm, cozy, brick lined restaurant with excellent food, good wine list and excellent service. I would go back again,... More

Dropped in for lunch after a tour out to Ft. Sumter. It happened to be a Saturday so they were serving a brunch-type menu at this hour. Had the crab cake eggs benedict which was very good. Another of us had the shrimp and grits which was also very nice. Would have liked to have seen regular menu. Didn't care... More

We had a lovely Thanksgiving dinner at High Cotton. I was not interested in the usual turkey dinner, but one person in our party had the traditional meal. It was nicely presented and very tasty. One member of our party started off with a delicious cup of she-crab soup. It was beautifully seasoned and we all wished we'd ordered it!... More

Very nice, quiet, peaceful restaurant. The food was absolutely delicious and at a reasonable price! We had swordfish, flounder, and filet. Jessica, our server, couldn't have been more helpful and added to our delightful dining experience. No negative comments here!!!!!
