Got in without a reservation on a chilly Saturday night. The service staff was accommodating and provided good descriptions of the dishes. My wife had tiel fish which she said was excellent. I had a south Carolina chicken bog sort of a jumbalaya type dish without tomato and season for local taste. It was very good. The only down side... More

Having not visited Charleston before, my husband and I had no idea where to have lunch. We literally stumbled upon 82 Queen… And it looked so quaint that we decided to give it a try. The restaurant was beautiful, we sat outside in the courtyard... It was perfect! Our waitress, Jamie was fantastic. She not only had great recommendations (she... More

If you have reservations on a rainy day or night, I would reconsider 82 Queen. The entrance is down an alley that is filled with puddles that are difficult to avoid. Directed to the bar, we were greeted and served by an extremely unmotivated bartender, who couldn't suggest any alternatives when asked for an apple martini. Her response was "oh... More

Great place for Sunday brunch. We (6 adults, 2 children) dined inside and the wait staff was incredibly friendly and attentive (ours was named Corwyn (SP?). The bloody marys and Chicken&Biscuits are highly recommended. Outdoor seating is available under good weather conditions. Parking garage immediately across the street.

We had an 11:30 lunch time reservation here. It was a party of 7, including one child. We were some of the first people to arrive and we had a great table in the outside courtyard. It was a great table for our party size and we didn't fell over crowded. Our server did well. It wasn't anything over the... More

There were 7 of us, 4 adults and 3 teen age girls. We arrived for an early TG dinner and were ushered into the room upstairs. As another reviewer stated it was nothing to write home about. I guess since we were in Charleston we expected it to be more than it is. Everyone ordered their beverages and 2 of... More

What a great place! Our first night in Charleston and no reservations was not a problem here at 82 Queen. We were happily greeted and seated in the courtyard.

Had lunch here and were really glad we did! So quaint and loved the back outdoors area! Our waiter was wonderful and starred us to the 'right' dishes. Only reason they didn't get 5 stars was my husbands burger was way over cooked...

Classic local restaurant. Food was good but certainly can overeat in a place with so many fried items. Had fried oysters and fried green tomatoes to start and filled up. Ribeye was excellent. Family enjoyed their bites if crab cakes and shrimp grits. Excellent lemoncello desert. Excellent service

Service was excellent. We were there on cold night so could not take advantage of courtyard but did sit in heated tent. nice but not the same. Crab cakes were recommended but were not the best. Crab meat was shredded into very small pieces, kind of mushy. Green tomato appetizer was okay. Think menu needs to be revamped.
