Our server, Evan, was fantastic; he gave great suggestions for the appetizers, entrees, and dessert and was very knowledgeable about the wine selection. It was Restaurant Week, so it was a limited menu, but with wonderful selections. We had fried green tomatoes, she crab soup, barbequed shrimp and grits, meatloaf, the short ribs, chocolate cheesecake, and pecan pie. EVERYTHING was... More

My wife and I had dinner last night at 82 Queen in Charleston, SC. We had heard great things from friends who had been there, so our expectations were high. It did not disappoint. From the unique atmosphere to the amazing food, it was off the charts good. Our server Jon Curry was great. His knowledge of the menu and... More

My husband and I had a wonderful dinner at 82 Queen. He ordered Barbecue Shrimp and Grits and said it was the best he'd ever had. We both had She Crab Soup, which was rich and creamy. I ordered two crab appetizers for my entree - Carolina Crab Cakes and She Crab Beignets. Both were wonderful. For dessert we shared... More

The best short ribs served over incredible risotto! And our waitress Jamie was as good as they come. Friendly and knowledgeable! I highly recommend it. Did I forget to mention that it's our second visit? Just as good as the first!

We met relatives we hadn't seen for quite some time for lunch at 82 Queen. Very charming low country restaurant. Although reviews we read raved about the Crab Chowder, I found it to be thin with not much crabmeat. I tried the Chicken Bog and for me, I did not enjoy it because it was loaded with onions. My husband... More

Snap decision brought us into this attractive restaurant; great southern alternatives like gumbo, tomato pie, and jumbalya. Pecan pie was one the best ever!

Have some time to kill and decided to relax at the bar with my friends. I was shocked what I discovered. Bartenders serve mixed drinks. It is standard. All ingredients were in the jars on the top of the counter. I noticed that all jars are open and no utensils are available for bartenders. Bartenders accepted cash from patrons and... More
