We went to get a drink on a beautiful spring evening. It took 45 mins to get a round of drinks. Over and hour longer trying to get another round, then trying to get the waitresses attention for the tab, then us saying to heck with it: paying for our tab at the bar and leaving. It is nothing spectacular.... More

My husband and I ended up at this rooftop bar after doing a Mixology Tour of Charleston on a Friday night. It's really beautiful and right next to the market! The only bad thing (for my huband) was that they didn't have a selection of craft beers. But check this place out anyway!

We happened on this restaurant by accident. Great find. It is outside and on the rooftop of hotel Pinninsula. The food was delicious but the service was very slow. It was not the fault of our waiter, Louis, who did his best. It just looked like they had more people than they were expecting. Fortunately we were not in a... More

We had lunch at the Pavilion. All of our dishes were excellent and beers were very cold. The views were fantastic and the area was shielded by see-through plastic so it wasn't too windy - but offered an unobstructed view. My pictures weren't distorted at all.

First time in Charleston with my wife. Explored many places, the Pavilion rooftop definitely has the best view. The Tuna Tower was superb and the service was excellent. Ask for Caroline, she was so genuine and made the experience perfect. We will be back!

Went up top to see the view, wound up staying for a meal. Service was friendly and very attentive without being invasive. Meal was quite good but not great. Alcohol choices plentiful including good wine list. Price reflects venue as well as fare. Would go back again.

We thought it would be a great idea to have a drink before dinner, an hour before sunset, to soak up the beauty of Charleston from the reputed "best rooftop bar" there. Yes, it probably meets or exceeds that bar, but you better get there earlier than that during Spring Break. The tables are basically all intended for 6 persons... More

Lovely rooftop spot in Charleston. Great views and a really pretty setting. Food very average for Charleston but the setting makes it worth it.

The waterfront view set the tone but the service and food is what makes this restaurant. We went for a late lunch and were highly impressive. We never had dinner that evening because we were all satisfied from lunch. Obviously many seafood choices but many other options as well. Definitely worthwhile.

Excellent choice for enjoying good drinks, great views & great ambiance. It was chilly, but the ample amount of heaters made it very comfortable. Service was very good. We had to watch tables & snag one as guests were leaving. Very lively atmosphere.
