We had a drink at the bar while waiting for a table and then had a seat at a fairly elegant restaurant, Blossom. The Menu is terrific, even for someone who is not a big seafood lover. But I was in seafood heaven. The wine list is also terrific and we were able to pair our seafood with a very... More

We have visited Charleston many times and this place never disappoints. She crab soup, and scallops were exquisite. I highly recommend it to anyone visiting downtown.

We had a wonderful dining experience at Blossom and Melissa, our waitress was awesome; polite, welcoming, courteous, professional and focussed on us having a good evening. This was our 2nd visit there and both times she was our server! Food was delicious and the service complimented every bite. The chocolate brownie desert was too much to eat, but rich and... More

We ate at Blossom our last night in town, what a great choice. We were treated to a table in the courtyard. We had a salad and a shrimp dish, both were fantastic. The wait staff are well trained and professional. Would definitely recommend Blossom if you are looking for a great meal.

A must visit! The food and ambience is amazing! Went on Mothers Day and the place was packed. Yet they didn't miss a beat. Our waitress "Melisa" made the place that much better. She was exceptional! We had the gumbo which was loaded with sausage, shrimp and crab. A must! The Blossom Benedict and Pulled Pork Hash was over the... More

Our last dinner in Charleston! Hubby and I sat in the bar and split appetizer portions of seafood gumbo, fried green tomatoes and a flatbread veggie pizza. Everything was excellent! Staff was the best!

We ate lunch at Blossom, mid-afternoon, around 3:30 p.m., when the restaurant was next-to-empty. We began with an oyster-shrimp plate - fresh and delicious - followed by excellent fish entrees. The food was excellent, and service was very attentive (it did not hurt that we were almost alone). It was a great meal.

A recent dinner at Blossom was less than expected from this well-known restaurant group. Reservation for my party of 7 (6 out-of-town guests) was made 2 months in advance. All in the party arrived promptly for the reserved time. The hostess was curt and we waited almost 15 minutes for our table to be readied. When we reached the table... More

Where do I begin. Wife and I have been to Blossoms many times, and it has been great. But, that was not so on April 27, 2017, at around 1:00 pm. When we walked into the restaurant the hostess was not there. We waited a short period and the hostess appeared and took us to our table. Now let me... More
