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.

I recently hosted a Bridesmaid's Luncheon for my granddaughters wedding at High Cotton.I could not have been more pleased! The staff were very considerate and thoughtful. The food was wonderful! We all especially enjoyed the Key Lime Pie for dessert. I would highly recommend this restaurant for any special occasion. A true reflection of Southern hospitality!

Such a treat! My husband and I ate here tonight with another couple. All 4 of us were stuffed and thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Everything was incredibly flavorful! Ready to go back again soon! Great environment and fun atmosphere! Staff and drinks were great also!

We enjoyed gazpacho, she-crab soup, and shrimp and grits for brunch. The brunch is not a buffet. Live jazz (in the room other than where we sat, but piped in) made it a very nice ambience. Service was nice.

While we did enjoy our meal here, I felt the menu selection was rather limited. There were several local favorite dishes in the menu, but I would have liked to see a few more seafood selections instead. The wait staff was very, very good. I would probably go back and try it again.

The waiter was attentive and the place was very busy for a wednesday night. One could definite feel the presence of locals and old money just by they way they looked and dressed. I loved what i ordered. Seafood cocktail. In it was lobster, crab and avocado. The taste was fresh and light. Seasoning was perfect. The crab soup was... More

We had dinner here on July 20th, great looking restaurant. Loved the ambiance and decor. Staff greet you very nicely. Service and food were the best we had while visiting. Totally recommend this place to anyone visiting. Make a reservation before coming. It was packed.
