    Park at the wood-paneled bar and order a cocktail made with the restaurant's private-label spirits. (The Southern Mule, with vodka, lime juice and Blenheim ginger beer, has a kick to it.) Read more

    This Charleston classic has regional cuisine dishes like Buttermilk Fried Oysters, Carolina Peach Salad and Shrimp and Grits. High Cotton is also known for their delicious steaks and Sunday brunch.

    Great happy hour specials, 4-6pm. Cheap craft beers and handmade cocktails. 3 piece jazz band during the week in the bar area is exceptionally nice.

    Order the Picnic Plate for a tasty introduction to local cuisine, including smoked salmon deviled eggs, housemade pâtés, ham, pimento cheese, BBQ peanuts, and pickles.

    Seth is the best waiter ever and also the nicest person in general. As an out-of-town northerner, I love that southern hospitality. Also, you wouldn't think to order it but the margarita is excellent.

    Still dreaming about the espresso martini I had here.... After delish picnic plate, filet mignon, fried brussel sprouts & Pinot noir. Only tables in right side dining room can hear live music.

    Definitely try the Charleston Cocktail - sweet goodness. Katies Last Word is definitely a strong sipping martini. Truffle infused popcorn was a worthy recommendation

    Try their barnraiser cocktail. It ours a fundraiser to help rebuild the industries damaged in the recent fire. Whiskey, local-made ginger ale and bitters, it's quite tasty!

    Awesome yellowfin tuna melt on pretzel roll. For those of you who like to keep it healthy, you can get a small salad rather than fries. Slow service, so don't expect a quick lunch.

    apple tart with cinnamon ice cream was amazing! ice wine with it was unnecessary as it was too sweet, coffee or espresso would have been better
