We ate here many years ago and loved it. When we found ourselves back in Charleston we decided to try it again. There is a parking garage across the street but we chose to Uber it so we could have wine with dinner. We were given a choice of inside or outside dining and chose outside because it was a... More

All Brunch options were amazing, it was hard to decide! Thankfully our group shared bites. The wait staff was very nice. They came back after a couple bites to make sure all was alright! Wish I was in Charleston long enough to go back to try another dish.

Our second visit to 82 Queen in August wasn't terrible, but it wasn't great. I am giving four stars because our first visit last year was so enjoyable. Our first visit was just my husband and I for a late lunch on a weekday in October when there were very few patrons. We enjoyed great food and very attentive service.... More

Tried 82 Queen during restaurant week. Pre-fix menu had a great variety of options. We sat outside under the gazebo. It was beautiful! We were surrounded by greenery and string lights. It was the perfect ambiance for our bachelorette party dinner. Everyone really enjoyed their meals- try the short ribs and limoncello cake! Would definitely return next time we're in... More

We visited the Queen during restaurant week. The atmosphere was business casual with a laid back feel. They were quite busy that Saturday night, but the staff kept up with all the diners very well. The food was well prepared and presented. We had a great waiter who took good care of us. I especially enjoyed the crab cake. Being... More

Ate here last nights with friend while we are at a beach house for a week. Charming setting in a covered outdoor area. It is Restaurant Week in Charleston so we had to order from that menu which limited our choices and forced more food on us than I would have chosen - set fee for 3 courses was $30... More

I have been wanting to try this restaurant and I'm so glad we finally did! What an awesome meal! We had the benefit of visiting during restaurant week so the price was extremely reasonable! We had a three course meal for $30, can't beat that! I started with she crab soup, then jambalaya, then marscapone cake! I have not enjoyed... More
