This restaurant was recommended to me by a local. Excellent menu selection. It was tough to decide but after the server's recommendation I went for the pan seared mahi mahi. It was superb served over rice with shrimp and a sauce that reminded me of a seafood bisque. I accompanied the meal with a local white blood orange beer that... More

Very good place for dinner! Sat outside in the courtyard which is small yet lovely (and romantic). Had the kale salad with CORNBREAD croutons, mahi mahi with rice grits and squash puree (nice and light), and finally banana cream mini pie which had a vanilla bean base. All delicious.

Just walking in the front door takes you back to a better era of well set tables and white table cloths. Superb ambience! We had oyster and fried shrimp po boys, and shrimp and grits. The fried shrimp and oysters were perfectly prepared..the local shrimp are sweet and delicate. The grits were prepared by someone who knows grits. We will... More

Our waiter Mark, offered excellent wine and specials selections. Service was impeccable and excellent presentation. The pork was a bit dry and when casually mentioned, the waiter removed the entree from our bill w/out further comment. I was surprised. We will return again & again. Parking next door is free w/stamp.

We came into Charleston to visit family, and enjoyed Sunday brunch at Blossom. The service was top notch. Our server was polite, friendly, and helpful. He was genuine and cared about us having a great time. Service was timely, and other servers continually helped out by running food, picking up dirty dishes, and refilling drinks. The manager made a point... More

We were visiting Charleston for 4 nights. During that time, we had lunch and dinner here. The menu has a lot of variety and also has items that are more basic for people like me who are not adventourous eaters. Want to try low-country food? You can but you can also get some simply grilled salmon with rice and vegetables... More

I really enjoyed our meals here. The first time we came was because our News Years Eve plans were a disaster (Yorktown Countdown - not what we expected), and we were hoping to find food late night. We needed up here almost by default because most places were either closed or already full up. I have to say, this was... More

While not my first choice for our last night's dinner in Charleston, I was pleased. I had a salad and fried green tomatoes because I asked what was for dessert, first, and decided I wanted to save room. My salad was very good and the FGT were great! I have never had them, but, wow, were they tasty, and I... More

We had dinner there on New Year's Eve, and we left feeling satisfied and happy. Wee started off with a bottle of Proseco that was both moderately priced and delicious. For appetizers we chose Fried Green Tomatoes and the Fried Clams and Calamari and both were quite good. For our entrees, two of us ordered the Grilled Sea Scallops, which... More
