I ate here a few years ago and stopped in again. Service was average in timing and nothing exceptional. The server didn't k ow the specials and just said to look at the specials sheet on the menu. We ordered the wahoo jambalaya. The fish was fresh and a little over cooked. The other dishes were average. The fried oysters... More

I had the lamb pizza for appetizer. The mix of flavors were wonderful. The crust was flavorful and not over powering. I was decadent. I wanted to order one to go. I had the scallops and they were seared to perfection. The grits were creamy and smooth and the sauce was a great accompaniment. I also tried a few of... More

We had lunch and went with the waiter's recommendations which were great. We'll run restaurant and bar. I think Blossom, Cypress and Magnolias are all run by one restaurant group. They are all located on the same block and have valet parking available.

Went there for Thanksgiving dinner. Good food and big price. Failure was ice cream scoop portions of mashed potatoes and stuffing. Felt like I was at a cafeteria when looking at the plated dish of food with round balls of mashed potatoes and dressing. For the $36 dollar price tag for the entree, it was a staggering failure and an... More

Delicious seafood dish. Asked for hush puppies which weren't on the menu. The chef obliged and they were the best we have ever had. Highly recommend.

We had a last minute lunch here before heading home on our recent trip to Charleston. The restuarant was very modern in the inside with a bright decor. We had the artichoke crab dip as an appetizer which was plenty filling on it's own. It had nice big chunks of crab in the dip. I had the Jumbo and my... More

Another one of the few places willing to accept our reservation for our group of 18, although we had shrunk to 12 by the time we ate there. Excellent menu, great assortment of appetizers, salads and entrees. Everything from wood fired pizza to chef prepared seafood dishes to die for. Good service and complementary parking next door.

The taste of the main course was great. I ordered the grilled scallops, however there were only three scallops mixed with shrimp. There were more shrimp than scallop. My gf had the stuffed flounder and she loved it! We had the fried oysters as an appetizer and that was a slight disappointment. For the desert we had apple crisp and... More

My favourite meal in Charleston was eaten here. We were walking, rather tired, after an afternoon of sightseeing, when we came upon this gem. We were going to only have a drink (it WAS happy hour!) and, perhaps, an appetizer and were seated on the side patio overlooked by a lovely church spire. Our server, Craig, made us feel most...

Great location in Charleston downtown. Very nice restaurant. We enjoyed the food. Ordering was quick. Waiting time after our order was quick. Quality and quantity of food were good. Service was great. Price was reasonable.
