Although everything I've ever tried is always excellent, The chef's special Fillet Oscar was only equaled by his praline soufflé this past weekend.

High Cotton has a nice a la carte brunch on a Sunday morning. The atmosphere is upscale and charming. Bloody Marys served in a mason jar started the ordering process while live Jazz music played in the bar. Our waiter was very polite and knew the menu well. We all went for the Crab Cakes Benedict complete with a friend... More

We visited Greenville this past weekend. The city is a must see and High Cotton a must visit restaurant. The dining rooms (on 3 levels) are beautiful, with different parts viewing different parts of the Falls Park area. The design is notable for the way one can get from the entry to the tables without walking through large sections of... More

There was a large group of us on a busy Friday night. We had reservations and were promptly seated upon arrival. We could not have asked for better service. The only glitch in the entire night was a drink order. Many of us drink Cosmos, and these were the worst we had ever had. Tasted like lighter fluid. But, they... More

I hate to admit it, but we've lived in Charleston almost thirty years and just now had our first meal at High Cotton, thanks to some out-of-town friends. We were VERY pleased - excellent service, the food was great, portions were very generous, and pleasant live music (even on a Monday night). Downtown CHS dining can be expensive (and High... More

Brunch at High Cotton was beautifully served, food delicious. Home made donuts served with beverages, cornbread also. I had eggs Benedict on crab cakes and fried green tomatoes. Location on East Bay close to the old markets, Magnolias, Snobs, etc. Great atmosphere in lovely building.

Great space! Great service! Served me a Caesar salad with field greens instead of romaine. Rack of lamb was very good, but not world class. Desserts were very goo!

The food at High Cotton was about the best we tasted during our recent visit. Our group of 8 were all in agreement that all of our entrees were excellent. For example, the black garlic rubbed lamb and the roasted duck breast were very tasty. Be sure you have a reservation for this restaurant.

The food and service was outstanding. The exterior needs painting desperately. They should be ashamed for letting the exterior run down as bad as it is.
