A place like this can be intimidating and expensive. But so worth it. Always great, fun cocktails (cucumber hendrinks refreshtini!) and always impressive gastronomic creations. And always that view! Did we mention the best ceviche?! With lobster and scallops!!?? And the great portion of lump crab meat?!?! I will keep saving up for this and will keep coming back.

Stopped in for a couple late night drinks after a great dinner out. Sat quite a while before getting a server. They actually argued over who didn't want to take our table. Got our drinks around 1130, promptly reminded that they close at midnight. Security came to remind us at 1140 that they close at midnight. We could see they... More

I stopped by there to have a drink and a nice view of Charleston and a quick break from walking around the city. The waiter seemed put off that we just wanted a drink. My son's friend ordered ice water (he's underage) and the glass was very dirty. The waiter never returned to check on us. I walked to the... More

Roof top bar with a pool, great views of the city from this hotel bar. Service was quick, albeit a little pricy.

The view is excellent from this location. Lots of room and seating. There is a dress code. Disappointed by the cost of beverages. Simple rail liquor on rocks were overpriced and EXTREMELY minimal. Expected pricing at some place in large city like D.C. or NYC. Not Charleston. Will be more selective with what I order next time I visit.

I thank you for joining us and glad you enjoyed the views, location and plenty of room and seating. I do also apologize that you thought the cocktails were overpriced and watered down. We are competitive and in some cases lower than other bars but I can assure you that our pours for the drinks are measured and more than... More

An evening under the stars at the Pavilion is ALWAYS on our list of things to do in Charleston. Beautiful panoramic views of Charleston, the harbor, the lights, hearing the water fountain and that warm balmy air combine to set the stage for a memorable evening. You will love with the experience. Great way to relax after a day touring... More

If you are in Charleston and want to get a drink before or after dinner this is a great place. Even when it was cold they set the outdoor rooftop bar up well with heaters and plastic screens to block the wind. The drink prices are pretty decent for the type of place it is, and the drinks were great.... More
