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 will be returning to High Cotton next week, and I can't wait. You truly feel the southern charm oozing from every corner of this restaurant. Service, menu and food are amazing. While my scallops were quite a bit under cooked (even for scallops) my date had the best rack of lamb I have ever had. Just stunning.

We had a really nice Saturday brunch, complete with bacon glazed doughnut holes and a salmon appetizer that was quite delicious. The entrees were not large, but the appetizers we had were so decadent that it all balanced itself out! The cocktails were also tasty. The only downside was our server, who seemed unfamiliar with the menu, and frankly a... More

Let me say, I did not have an adult beverage. Atmosphere was great. Crab cakes were awesome. Grits were thick, also awesome. Fried-green tomatoes, only one was green (two total) burnt on outside doughy inside , big let down. Charleston crab soup was also very good. Cornbread was undercooked (can't even process that).

Fairly priced and reasonable, it has to be one of Charleston's best. The food was of high quality garnished with excellent surroundings and décor. Took clients for the first time a few weeks ago and we were very impressed with the service, décor and the quality of the food.

Enjoyed a wonderful dinner paired with a nice wine list. Service was top notch, and attentive. Easy to get to, with a warm ambiance. Will visit again.

We're locals and have eaten at most of the restaurants downtown over the years but never made it into High Cotton. So we decided to give it a try last week. We were greeted by a very friendly hostess and manager, and got to our table straight away. I should have asked for the open 4 top by the window... More

Wow, a really nice experience! Had a reservation in the later evening and it was a good time as many of the early diners had cleared out. Live music, old time bluesy, was just the right volume for eating and talking but it clearly had a nice groove going for most of us. Food was extraordinary with my wife having... More

Actually tried to get reservations at the place across the street and could not. So, walked in to High Cotton, got a table in the Bar Section, where a great blue grass/funky band was playing. They were great. Ordered a Manhattan. Has to be the best one I have ever had. Waiter was super helpful and informative. Food was great.... More

Great choices on the menu. The catch of the day was swordfish, it was a little salty for my taste. The watermelon salad was great.
