My wife and I dined at 82 Queen on Thanksgiving in the late afternoon. They offered both traditional Thanksgiving fare, and other items from their normal menu. Everything we had was wonderful, and the portions were quite large, leaving us plenty of leftovers. Maria, the server, was eager to please, and quite pleasant.

As Charleston locals, we've dined at 82 Queen many times. For our 10th Anniversary we wanted it special and 82 really came through! From flowers on the table and a card from management and a champagne toast and complimentary dessert, it was all about us! The food as always was fabulous and our server Corwin Rivers made it even better.... More

Our server, Evan, was fantastic; he gave great suggestions for the appetizers, entrees, and dessert and was very knowledgeable about the wine selection. It was Restaurant Week, so it was a limited menu, but with wonderful selections. We had fried green tomatoes, she crab soup, barbequed shrimp and grits, meatloaf, the short ribs, chocolate cheesecake, and pecan pie. EVERYTHING was... More

The best short ribs served over incredible risotto! And our waitress Jamie was as good as they come. Friendly and knowledgeable! I highly recommend it. Did I forget to mention that it's our second visit? Just as good as the first!
