Our 4th time to Charleston, but first visit to this fine restaurant. The best mussels I have ever had, my husband is still talking about the tomato pie! Wonderful ambiance and service!

Since we live on Hilton Head Island, we have many friends who recommended this restaurant, and I did look it up on Trip Advisor. Although our meal was good, it wasn't any better than a meal I had at any fine restaurant. Told the She-Crab soup was the best in Charleston, we ordered it, but honestly, I had better She-Crab...

You won't be sorry for making reservations at 82 Queen's Restaurant! We, three couples, had a great time there: the presentation and taste of the Fish & Grits may have been the best I've ever eaten anywhere in the South! The service was simply outstanding, and the evening atmosphere and surroundings were spot on. If you go to Charleston, don't... More

We went to 82 Queen for my wife's birthday, and had a wonderful time. It was between lunch and dinner, so technically the kitchen was closed, but they let us sit on the romantic patio and sip cocktails anyway. They even brought us a dessert. Great experience!

We have dined here several times in the years we have been here and it has always been a great dining experience. The menu changes now and again and the food is great. If you enjoy outdoor dining then this place is it with its lights in the trees making a special atmosphere.

The location is a bit tricky to find but certainly worth the effort! We lunched outside in the most charming garden setting. Even though it was a hot day, the garden was cool thanks you copious shade and large ceiling fan installations. The chef special was an updated version of southern fried chicken served over a risotto with roasted tomatoes... More

Night started a little shaky when our hostess took the name for the reservation which we were prompt for and then walked away. It was hot outside where you wait and we had no idea of our status for dinner. She finally came back but attended to other people checking in. Finally another hostess came and asked if we had...

Can not go wrong here for some great food. Prefer to eat in the courtyard area for the atmosphere but a bit to hot on an August evening so we dined inside. Best sea crab soup in Charleston, if that is all we had, that would be enough, but of course we did have more. Jambalaya was very good with... More

Great brunch menu. Shrimp and grits were wonderful--as was the bacon bloody mary. Biscuits were tasty. She crab soup rates with all other restaurants.
