We have eaten here several times and never been seated in the same place twice! The food and waitstaff are the reasons to eat here. The soup of the day was lobster bisque and very tasty. Of course, the she crab is always the best and award winning!! We had the lunch specials, so the menu has probably changed by now, but mine was a salad topped with grilled shrimp. I very rarely finish any meal, but that day I was a member of the clean plate club! We also ordered Bloody Mary's and they were perfectly executed. Our friend ordered the always present jambalaya and went away extremely satisfied. We love 82 Queen and will be back on our next visit to Charleston.

Thank Mary K

This is one of my favorite places by far! Stunning ambiance, great food and service. Charleston is so rich in history and this place definitely speaks to me. I've been twice and will return!

Maybe if you get seated in the garden room you'll have a different opinion of 82 Queen, but we weren't given the option. After bringing us to an upstairs dining room lacking any atmosphere, we asked to be seated downstairs and were taken to a side room with a painted fake bookcase on an entire wall. Utterly devoid of any atmosphere, so we didn't stay for dinner. Can't comment on the food because the vibe was so poor we didn't stay.

A favorite spot to bring out of town guests. The courtyard is my favorite spot to sit on a warm evening. Crab cakes are great! Good spot for groups too.
