“Exactly what you expect from the Maverick Brand”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

What's to dislike? Other than the fact that there are so many delicious dishes you can't try them all. Prefer to sit in the main dining room love the plantation old south feel. Great dining, good service.

“Delightful dining...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

From atmosphere and the staff to the food, High Cotton is a great dining experience. This was a repeat lunch visit for me (although I did not review it before) and I was just as pleased the second time as the first. From the shrimp and grits to the soft shell crab sandsich to the reuben, everyone in our party was full of good words about their meal. Service was excellent...you were made to feel welcome upon entering the restaurant and that feeling stayed with you until you walked out the door. I found our lunch reasonably priced and a good break from a busy day in Charleston. Do make a reservation....

High Cotton is such a fun place to dine--busy with pleasant seating . The meal was well prepared and cooked with a Charleston flair. Our waiter was outstanding, friendly and well informed re food and wine.We were impressed by how gracious the staff was to all.

“Fine dining in Charleston”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

A crowded, somewhat noisy, superb dining experience awaits you! Reservations strongly suggested.
The bar is loud and raucous. The dining area is large with ample sized tables. The waitstaff is extremely friendly and helpful. Our waitress introduced herself by name and asked ours.
The menu is extensive, and the food is prepared par excellence! I asked for additional sauce for my rack of lamb and it arrived in a flash!
Prices moderately expensive.
You'll leave this restaurant satisfied that you've had an excellent dining experience! Highly recommended!

“Highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

The food is wonderful. There is live jazz. It is a bit pricey but so are many other restaurants in this area of Charleston. The servers are friendly and helpful. It was our first visit to the city and if you have never tried shrimp and grits this is a great place to try it.
