We decided to stop here for a quick bite to eat at the end of the afternoon of touring Charleston. We did not have a reservation, but called and was assured that there were available spots at the bar. Arrived and was seated relatively quickly. The restaurant was uber-crowded...seemed almost too crowded as the tables across from the bar had... More

We decided to take a quick, last-minute trip to Charleston for President's Day weekend. After all, it's only 4 hours away from Florida. Having worked in the hospitality business for over a dozen years, I know a lot of discriminating foodies and travelers. I put out a request on social media and was floored by the number of great recommendations.... More

My wife and I went here based upon a recommendation of friends who were not wrong. The food (fish for us) was prepared as ordered and was well presented. One of the bonuses is that they have a nice selection of 1/2 bottles of wine which is great if you want more than one glass and don't want to order... More

My friends and I took a weekend trip to Charleston and we found this place and decided to try it out. I was floored! I had the Blackened Catfish and it was to die for! I have a shellfish allergy and our waitress was more than accommodating, the ambience was relaxed but still felt like it met the pricing of... More

Blossom was recommended to us by friends familiar with Charleston and we were not disappointed!! Amazing food, great service and modern fun atmosphere. Had the oysters Rockefeller, crab stuffed grouper over creamed spinach and Creme brûlée - divine!!

I went valentines day with my girlfriend. She is a pescatarian so I found blossom to have a lot of seafood options on their menu. We looked at the menu online and decided it would work. I made the reservation which was easy. Upon arriving the place was nice. We soon found out that there was a valentine days menu.... More

My large party got excellent food with the exception of one unacceptably salty entree, but poor service spoiled the experience. We had to wait half an hour for our table which was reserved well in advance. Thereafter the pace remained painfully slow due mainly to the fact that a single waiter served our group of thirteen. We were in the... More
