Don't get me wrong --- 82 Queen is an institution in Charleston, and their She Crab Soup is still hard to beat. And, our waitress was lovely and the wine was good. Unfortunately, those were the few highlights of our meal. I had the bouillabaisse, and thought it was more like shellfish in tomato sauce, rather than a nice broth.... More

Fantastic venue. Feel of old Charleston setting. Small intimate settings, brick patios, rooms for small groups with cozy settings. Waiter was hilarious, not stuffy. Food was so-so. I should not have ordered BBQ Shrimp and Grits. BBQ sauce just doesn't go with Shrimp & grits; nor eggs.

Yup, low country but not low prices. An elegant location set in historic district, dinin in multiple rooms of old home. Very much enjoyed our Shrimp/Grits and the Chicken Bog. Best collards of the trip! Excellent cocktails, just to stuffed for dessert.

This was our second visit to this restaurant. As expected, our meal was worthy of our return. Last time we were seated on the pretty outdoor patio; this time we were seated in their beautiful, light & bright, upstairs dining room that has a early American flair (of course, it's Charleston). The waiter was pleasant, the ensuing service was just... More

Called to make a reservation and the response was positive and very friendly. On arrival we were greeted and shown an outdoor set. Now the temperature must have been above 30c and the humidity right up there. Our contact assured us that it would be fine as there was enough breeze? Anyway, I ordered Jumbalaya and what can be said... More

Again our quest was to eat classic southern cuisine. In a couple of old,300years that is mansions, intimate dining and great food and service. Rooms are original so eleven dining areas. Try the grits and BBQ shrimp

The courtyard is very romantic and peaceful, an ideal location for a special date night out. The food was pretty good overall but did not wow me or even live up to the cost, but it is typical for a city that has a large amount of tourism. Dining experience was pleasant with good service. If you are dining in... More
