My excellent experience at Blossom started with the very friendly and accommodating reservation employee that answered the phone at 9:30 at night two days before I was seeking a reservation for my group of 12 (which would become 13). She went to extra measures to call the Manager for approval at add our large group. To anyone who has dined... More

The fish tacos were delicious - both ahi tuna and mahi mahi. We were seated outside for a late lunch and the weather was gorgeous.

Had dinner here and our meals were delicious. Recommend pan-seared Mahi-mahi and the blackened swordfish. Atmosphere is pleasant and service was very good. Recommend calling for reservations.

I visited Blossom after being turned away from Fleet Landing for having my service dog. The food at Blossom was AWESOME. The service and ambiance was as well. I had the oyster stew and the combo plate as an entrée with oysters fries. I look forward to my next visit at Blossoms.

My husband and I recently visited Blossom and I was very disappointed. First of all the restaurant was very noisy. So noisy that it really distracted from the meal. The service was not great either. My husband had the seafood platter which he said was good. I ordered the blackened catfish and it was ok. There are too many restaurants... More

We took a shot at Thanksgiving here with a reservation based on a recommendation from one of my clients who has a daughter that works there. We had a 1pm reservation and weren't seated until approx 110, but it was well worth the wait. We had the lamb shank special and it was so tender we could just pull the... More

A starter of crab with avocado on toast was tasteless until I got the waiter to bring me drawn butter with garlic. The bread was a supermarket baguette, sliced too thick. Whoever conceived this dish (as normally served) had no idea what to do with top-quality fresh crab meat and produced an utter banality. My main course of Blue Crab... More

This turned out to be absolutely perfect. We just walked in and received great service and fantastic food. We had jumbo shrimp with two sides. Awesomeness. Highly recommended.

We had a wonderful seafood meal during our visit to Blossom in Charleston. We really like the casual atmosphere in this restaurant and they have a very nice outdoor dining area as well. The menu offers a wide variety of seafood entrees as well as other options. The prices are reasonable and everything we ordered was very good.
