82 Queen was the only dark spot in a weekend of fabulous restaurant dining. We had made our reservations weeks in advance and were looking forward to a special evening. We were greeted by a snarky hostess who informed us we were EARLY! (We had arrived all of 6 minutes before our reservation.) I requested outdoor dining as it was... More

The best crab cakes I have ever eaten! The she crab soup was great too. I have yet to find a place in Charleston that compares to 82 Queens crab cakes.

Had been there years ago. Known for their Southern Foods, like she crab soup and grits. Good service. Went with large group. Food was tasty but not outstanding.

Since we planned our Charleston trip over Valentines Day, I made a dinner reservation over a month ago. We arrived a bit early, but were seated right away. I soon realized that we had a really bad table. It was located right between the bathroom and the server station. We asked to be moved and were placed nearby at an... More

My boyfriend took me here for brunch on a Sunday morning and I cannot possibly begin to describe such a beautiful morning. The restaurant itself is stunning - very secluded with intimate patio surroundings. And the food was outstanding! Do not miss out on the she crab soup - just order a cup to at least say you've tasted such... More

We had a wonderful early Valentines dinner here last night! Our waitress, Jamie, was so helpful and fun! She gave great recommendations too. The shrimp and grits and tomato pie were amazing! We are locals and had forgotten this wonderful spot, will be back again soon!

Even though they use "High school" library chairs, this was one of our best meals in Charleston. That is saying a lot since Charleston is a "Foodie" city. We had five appetizers for "Dinner" so we could sample more than two dishes. Every one of them met or exceeded our expectations.Very good She Crab soup, crab cakes, fried green tomatoes,... More

Had a work dinner last night at 82 Queen. First time I have been in a few years. The food and service were just as I remember it, spot on. I opted for the she crab soup and jambalaya. Both were so good. We also got the fried oysters app and while the oysters themselves were delish the bed of... More
