“Another daring chef that scores.”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

We slipped into the bar to avoid the long wait and were rewarded with excellent service and a romantic little moment. We only ordered the sausage plate, which I was pleasantly surprised by it's expanse. Not only were there rabbit, wild boar and chicken sausage, but also a dill dijon mustard that I will try furiously to emulate once I get home. Only drawback at the bar was no selections on draft, but that tends to be common in Charleston for some reason.

“Wonderful Evening”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Experienced a wonderful evening at 82 Queen on Saturday 4/27/13. Seated on time, in the lovely courtyard, the service was excellent. Waiter attentive and knowledgeable. She-Crab soup was very good. Our entrees were soft-shell crab and duck, both tasty and very well prepared and presented. Only downside was Carolina Red Rice (side dish) was so-so. Hope to return on a future visit to Charleston.

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

Everything was very good, we were there for lunch. Next time I will know there is a "share charge", we shared a salad and lunch and were charged an extra $12.00! My bad that I did not ask, but will not get caught in that situation again!

“Wonderful atmosphere & delicious food!”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

We went for Sunday brunch and were a little worried because we didn't have a reservation, but we got a table right away! It was a beautiful day so we sat outside and the atmosphere is wonderful with a great indoor/outdoor feel to it. The service was great and the food was spectacular! We will definitely go back again next time we visit Charleston!
