With a focus on gracious Southern hospitality and fresh local cuisine, 82 Queen has been providing her guests with a uniquely “Charleston” dining experience for almost a quarter of a century. 

In a town renowned for fine restaurants, 82 Queen has not only kept pace with strong competition, it has gained high marks for its unique approach to the menu of one of the nation's premiere dining destinations.  For three consecutive years, 82 Queen was voted “Best City Restaurant” by the readers of Southern Living magazine; 82 Queen also received Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence for five consecutive years.

Authentic Lowcountry cuisine, coupled with an award-winning wine list will make dining at 82 Queen an incomparable experience.


Frommer's Review

In its way, this is probably the most unusual compendium of real estate in Charleston: three 18th- and 19th-century houses clustered around an ancient magnolia tree, with outdoor tables arranged in its shade. Menu items filled with flavor and flair include an award-winning version of she-crab soup laced with sherry. Some of the best Low Country meals in Charleston are served here, especially the Charleston bouillabaisse made with market-fresh seafood or the seasoned shrimp and crawfish jambalaya with tasso ham and red rice. Grilled dinners are also a specialty of the chef, especially the black-pepper New York strip with mashed red-skin potatoes and balsamic-marinated portobello mushrooms.

Note from the webmaster: The barbeque shrimp and grits appetizer is the best kept secret in Charleston.
