Exception meal. Excellent service and even the restaurant owner came to greet us. Such a special place for which I will return for sure.

Wonderful dining at High Cotton. My husband and I enjoyed the scallops and the Snapper both of which were prepared perfectly. It is a special dining experience with wonderful, attentive service. We shall return next time we are in Charleston.

We were given the best booth in the restaurant. Was very quiet & comfortable with a clear view of the restaurant. Great atmoshphere. The service was good & the quality of food was really good with one exception. The chef was extremely heavy with the salt. The homemade bread was topped with so much salt seasoning it wasn't edible. The soup was certainly much saltier than we would have preferred, still very tasty. The fish entrees were well prepared & delicious. Not sure if we'll return though due to our aversion to salt.

First time at High Cotton eventhough its been in Charleston for years. It won't be our last. What a great restaurant and our waiter couldn't have been better.

in a city filled with tourist traps, High Cotton stands out as a place which offers great service, great menu and an enjoyable atmosphere. We're luck to be local and get to go when we want.

Great food and a fantastic server, Kryston. We all had appetizers and different types of entrees. All were very good.

It was a great dinner . We came back for our anniversary after eating here last year. I highly recommend High Cotton for any occasion.

Server was polite but not friendly. She didn't smile or respond after we answered her questions. She came across cold in a warm atmosphere. We were expecting a high price restaurant to have warm friendly staff. A bit disappointed with the lack of charm in that area.

We loved High Cotton -- and while the service was exceptional, the menu was changed so much that you can't call this High Cotton anymore. We've been coming to this restaurant once or twice a year (at least) every year for the past decade. However, this has become Halls Seafood and no longer represents the High Cotton brand. It was a very disappointing evening simply because of the drastic change to the menu. If you like seafood I'm certain this will be an amazing experience. But if you're looking for High Cotton... it's gone...
