We will be back!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat DinnerHC offers and all around quality dining experience. The Painkiller is great, and don't miss the scallops. The most enjoyable of all of the food that we ordered was the fried brussle sprouts. I would go back solely for them! Be sure to try them. Staff is friendly and genuine. We will go back.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was outstanding as wasFood was outstanding as was the service.... Will definitely be back next time we visit charleston!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMVery PleasantA great restaurant for a special occasion. The food is great and the cocktails are outstanding. The tables are arranged so that you feel cozy though there are many others in the room. My dining experience at High Cotton was altogether very pleasant.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a lovely lunch. Benjamin,It was a lovely lunch. Benjamin, our server, was wonderul!!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service, brunch menuGreat service, brunch menu was varied & appetizing. Good brunch!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSMALL PORTIONS, HIGH PRICES,The twice baked potato for $6or 8 is a small half of a potato with a blob of melted cheese on top (barely enough for three small fork fulls), can get better at a diners or cheap buffett, the brocolli and carrots for $7 consist of three very small florets and a few slivers of carrots. BOTH ARE TRUE RIP OFFS. The 10oz strip steak I had came in 3 put togather sections and was grissly. I ordered bernaise sause with mine and the steak came with crem fresh melted on top. My partner ordered a well done steak and was served medium, sent back, however my partner said her steak was good. Sometimes when restaurants are successful , their quality and value go down at the expense of the loyal customer, they just want to make money at customers expense.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat DinnerI had the cheese board, the corn chowder, and a steak with vegetables. Everything was amazing. I would go back again.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect for a celebrationI've celebrated two great occasions at High Cotton - a birthday and a graduation from graduate school.

We had a group of 8 people and from start to finish we were treated very well. The server was extremely knowledgeable and helped us make perfect selections for our meal. Can't complain about anything.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFABULOUS!!!It was simply the dining highlight of my Charleston visit! The service was impeccable! Every one of our selections from the menu from appetizers to dessert was presented flawlessly and each was absolutely delicious. The pimento cheese spread and rolls were so good, we requested some to go! The wine list was hands down the very best in the city. If I were to recommend the perfect evening in Charleston - I would send you to High Cotton.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our favoritesWe spend half the year in Charleston and High Cotton is one of our favorites. Especially for Sunday brunch. Highly recommended !5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, High Cotton deliveredAs always, High Cotton delivered excellent service and ambience and very good food. The classic Southern brunch choices (shrimp & grits; eggs benedict) are excellent, and the High Cotton features (ham & potato croquettes; chicken/sausage & waffles are good as well -- but not quite as billed). A good, safe brunch spot each time we visit.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMSUPER SPECIAL DINNERAwesome wedding anniversary celebration. First time in Charleston and came on a friend's recommendation. Food and atmosphere were outta the park!!! Waiter even brought a complimentary champagne toast to our table to begin the meal. Crab soup outstanding and picnic appetizer to share were so much fun and really tasty. We now know how good low country cuisine can be. All dishes prepared with care and delicious. Service was attentive and friendly. Thanks for making our night so special!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was amazing!!!!Everything was amazing!!!! Best dining experience for us in Charleston!!!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMIt is always a pleasure toIt is always a pleasure to have lunch at High Cotton.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMVery NiceMy wife and I had a very nice late supper at High Cotton. Our table was ready within 5 min. of our arrival. We sat near the band (jazz) and had a lovely candle light meal. Total cost for two meals and two bottles of wine was about $150. We both loved it.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent meal!One of the best dinners we have had in Charleston. Very comparable to Peninsula Grille.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMI have been here several timesI have been here several times before but was a first for the rest of my family, ther were five of us. With the exception of my sisters shrimp dish which was delivered on the cool side ( she had to wait 5 minutes for a refire) the balance of the meal was very nice.
Our reservation was for 7:30 (evening)) most of the gentlemen had on long pants many with sports jackets, but all looked smart casual. There was a couple the woman looked great but the. Man was in high top sneakers white socks ,cargo shorts and a short sleeve shirt handing out side of his shorts. A great look for a baseball game not a fine dining establishment. What ever happened to requiring some measure of a dress code at a minimum.( smart casual)5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBusiness MeetingI hosted a group of eight. The wait staff was very attentive. We started with some drinks while we waited on one of the party to join us. The waiters let us be and did not push. Food was served very timely and everyone enjoyed themselves. The menu selections are unique and excellent. I had the rabbit which was fantastic.
I would recommend this restaurant for business dinners and special occasions. I do not think it is a place for children. They would spoil the evening for other diners.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMCharming southern hosptalityOur waitress was simply charming, made several excellent suggestions, The food was imaginative and tasty.
When crowded, there was quite a "buzz" but all very festive.

I called back and informed that one of our guest from England, her name is Dawn was having her birthday that night. I was told ok, Thank you for the information. Nothing was done to let her know we had acknowledged her Birthday. It all worked out, because it was going to be a Birthday surprise, and since she did not know it, all worked out fine.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMHigh Cotton does it well.High Cotton does it well.

Fine dining and priced accordingly.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMHigh marks for High Cotton!Our visit to High Cotton was great. All the waitstaff were friendly and professional. The food was fabulous--the mint chocolate souffle was heavenly! Some things to note: this joint is jumpin' so don't expect a quiet romantic dinner where you can whisper sweet nothings. But do expect great food and a fun time. The ambiance is white table cloth and upscale so you can wear your little black dress and heels. But there were plenty of people who opted for a bit more casual attire too. High Cotten is a bit on the pricey side and they don't rush you through dinner. So if you are looking for a cheap fast meal, this probably isn't the place for you.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and even betterGreat food and even better service from Mary Catherine. She knew the menu and made excellent suggestions.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was excellent,The service was excellent, and our server, Lisa, was perfect in her recommendations.

Each course was good.The table was ready for us at the time of our reservation, which we really appreciate.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful dining experience.Excellent food, ambiance and service. Portions are on the smaller side which was more than enough for me but if you are a big eater, may not be to your liking. Plates were beautifully presented. Salads were delicious and a shared salad was plenty. I had grilled sea scallops, cooked perfectly with a grapefruit citrus sauce and grilled endive. It was excellent. Good choice of wines by the glass we really enjoyed dining here and would definitely return.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat, evening all around.Great, evening all around.

Highly recommended !4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMService was excellent veryService was excellent very friendly and helpfull, Food well cooked and nice size portions. The deserts were hard to chouse from they all sounded so good. Recommended to anyone visiting Charlestown. A winner that I would return to again if I have the opportunity.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAt first we thought our waiterAt first we thought our waiter was a tad loud and a bit pushy. We had drinks, wine and appetizers and felt he didn't need to be pushy. The cheese board and pork belly were quite tasty. We all ordered a salad...mixed greens with blue cheese and fried green tomatoes and bacon!!! Excellent. One had rabbit, two had lamb, one had scallops and one had strip steak. We all thought our food was excellent...lamb was extremely tender and prepared to medium rare. We had dessert...creme brûlée, port, peanut butter dessert and a special strawberry/rhubarb cream dessert. As the meal progressed, our waiter relaxed. Attentiveness is good but should be loud. Overall, a most enjoyable evening!!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
