We had heard great things about this place so we had high expectations. The atmosphere and "Southern Charm" look of the place are exactly what you want in Charleston. The menu items looked so tasty that we spent a full 10 minutes trying to decide between them. I settled on the French Toast and Biscuits and Gravy. First came the... More

Visiting High Cotton is not an every day kind of event for us and we came prepared for the prices. However the rabbit, which was on the special menu for the week, was overcooked and consequently tough. Wine was fine, We had a good time, but left feeling they missed the mark.

High Cotton was our favorite restaurant during our recent stay in Charleston. Wanting a break from seafood, both of us ordered steak dinners. The steaks were done to perfection with interesting complimentary sides. Pecan pie and Irish coffee provided a perfect ending to a wonderful dinner. Will definitely plan to visit the High Cotton again during any future visits to... More

Great wine, delicious chicken. The meal was beautifully prepared, crispy skin, delicious seasoning. My husband loved the grouper. I was disappointed with the crab chowder. We had sampled the she-crab chowder at other restaurants(TBonz, for one) and found High Cotton's less than stellar. The service was very good and the wine list decent. $140.00 for 2 was pricey.

Entertaining Hollywood is no easy task, but High Cotton gets it right on the first take. We recently dined at the downtown Charleston restaurant with our dear friends from "Jaws" to celebrate special achievements and birthdays. We had a table of eight and enjoyed every minute of food and drink, from the tasty appetizers, salads and the fresh local seafood.... More

we were there to celebrate our anniversary and had reservations. Waited about 20 minutes at the bar past our reservation time to be seated at a table. The live music was enjoyable. The wait staff was friendly, attentive and courteous but the seating delay started a special evening off poorly. The food was good but not great. We were provided... More

We ate dinner there and 2 of us each had an appetizer, and desert, but we share the main course. The bill, without tip was $95. The service was excellent. There was some live music and it seemed good, and not excessively loud. One of us had sweetbreads as an appetizer and enjoyed it. I had a seafood appetizer. It... More

We had the pleasure of dining at High Cotton in March, 2014. The service, food and atmosphere were out of this world. Casual yet elegant it was a feast for the eyes as well as the tastebuds. I dined on filet while others had everything from steak to octopus. Was well worth the price! Will return again...
