We ate here for brunch and were seated in the courtyard. The brunch menu was innovative and at the same time typical So. Carolina. Bloody Marys and Mimosas good. Service was great. Friendly and efficient. We really enjoyed the atmosphere and the food.

82 Queen is a place where you can eat outside even on cold rainy days or inside during the hot sticky ones. The She Crab soup is IMO the best in Charleston. The service is attentive without being obtrusive. Definitely a place to go for a romantic meal. It's pricy but the quantity of the food and the pour of the drink is fair though the taste and presentation are excellent.

A friend and I stopped here for lunch and were able to eat outdoors next to a heater in the February sunshine. Nirvana for us frozen Northerners. Our waiter was absolutely delightful and knew the menu like the back of his hand. I had the shrimp and grits - my first ever. The shrimp were so tender - perfectly cooked. We returned for dinner later in our stay. This time we were in the semi-outdoors in a covered but not closed room in the garden. This time we had a waitress/waiter team who were very attentive and knowledgeable. The food, again, was excellent. My entree was grilled salmon with tart apples, pecans and grilled Brussels sprouts on goat cheese and basil pistou. The only annoying thing was a couple at the next table who did not silence their cell phones and would check them with each ring. These people were in their 50's… where were their manners?

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.
