It wasn’t bad, but neither the food nor the service met my expectations for a restaurant that’s so well-reviewed and highly regarded. The waiter lacked that basic quality of genuinely caring whether I had a good meal or not. Most of what he said was a memorized spiel. Starting out, he introduced himself and asked my name, which is Kate.... More

We had a great experience at 82 Queen. We arrived after the kitchen was closed so we got the Bar menu, which was limited but all items looked good. We ordered the Chicken wrap and the shrimp and grits. All items were well prepared and great service. We sat on a table outside which was wonderful.

The shrimp and grits were yummy and taste the biscuits. They are worth the extra calories. We ate outside under the gazebo.

We ate lunch here based on a recommendation from a friend who grew up in Charleston. It was just what she said - a feel of the old town with great food and service. We ate outside on a beautiful day and enjoyed their southern hospitality and food.

First time visiting 82 queen and it was amazing. Our waiter Terrence was Great. Without him I don't think I would have enjoyed the experience as much. Food was great too.

Eating at 82 Queen is always a treat when I am in Charleston. I cannot leave the city without having at least one meal here, complete with the best fried green tomatoes around. The restaurant itself is such a Charleston classic - great outdoor courtyard and eating area, beautifully appointed, and a classic indoor area. The food is well prepared... More

Nice gem tucked away on Queen street. Traverse a romantically lit alleyway to a courtyard that allows diners to choose between eating in or out. The food was delicious and atmosphere equally charming. Make sure you make reservations as Charleston is teaming with visitors.

We sat outside with a large tree growing in the middle of the outdoor seating. Outstanding food and large portions. Great service with many selections for entrée.
