The restaurant was extremely busy, which meant our table wasn't ready when we arrived. But that didn't matter we found a seat at the bar got a glass of champagne and a martini and listening to some amazing jazz. We were actually happy our table wasn't ready yet. Once we were seated we ordered a bottle of wine and the sommelier was incredible. Then we had oysters, which I must mention were the only perfectly shucked oysters we had the entire 5 days we were in Charleston. Then we had some crab, salad and ahi tuna for the main. Lots of food and an amazing menu. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is going to Charleston.

We arrived on time for our reservations and were informed our table was still occupied and they had no eta for when it would be ready and asked us to sit at the bar where we had a bartender who was annoyed with a simple question of what do you think is better the bellini or sangria. In addition, after 30+ minutes of waiting the hostess came by and said “did you close out your tab because your table is ready” as if we were being an inconvenience. I’d recommend some additional training to make sure Customer Service starts at the front of the house.

My only complaint is they skimped a little on the hollandaise sauce for the crabcake benedict, however, the eggs were perfectly cooked, the crabcakes were delicious as well as the shrimp and grits. Would definitely go there again. It was a delightful start to our day!

Husband had Lane Snapper fish dish and it wasn’t great, either. Buttermilk fried oyster appetizer was good but so filling. All in all, same old stuff on menu. I would eat at SLightly North of Broad, Puggans Porch, or Peninsula Grill before this place. Lovely atmosphere and bright cheerful room. But food lacked heart.

Highly recommend.

From the moment we walked in, we were pampered and taken care of. We were seated at a table that had a wonderful view of the street as well as the restaurant. Our server was Scott and he took excellent care of us, offering suggestions but never overbearing. The She Crab Soup was divine, as was the shrimp cocktail we shared as an appetizer. Our entrees included the special of the day and the swordfish; both were prepared to perfection and the right proportion for sharing. Although we didn't order dessert, Scott brought a piece of their coconut cream pie as a tribute to my sister's birthday. If you get the opportunity to try this dessert, I highly recommend it! The evening was a wonderful and relaxing time together and one that we will long remember!

The food was delicious, atmosphere was wonderful, and service was exceptional! Our server Scott did an amazing job! He was very friendly, personable, and gave wonderful recommendations. The manager even gave us complimentary champagne for our anniversary. Will definitely be back next time we are in Charleston.

Asked for a black napkin twice - he delivered it but left the white one in place, the waiter was absent from our table - had to ask to have the water and tea refilled several times, the bread/clean up girl was either on her first night or lost in space - she was busy looking around but not focusing on what needed to be done. The manager was attentive to the table of pretty young girls next to us and talked about how he could get them extra sauce for the lobster gnocchi but oddly never mentioned that to us. The waiter was so oblivious he missed the fact that the girl at the next table ordered Tuna and while everyone at her table told her it was prepared properly she hated it and wouldn't eat more than the first bite - it sat in her plate without him being aware her expensive meal was less than tasty. Our bread basket was brought out with a crusty dirty napkin wrapped around the bread. I asked for a tea spoon to stir my sweet n low in my tea only to be presented with a regular spoon - it is tough to stir a sweetener that sits on the bottom of a tall glass with a short spoon. We were in the main dining room on the right with the tall windows looking out at the city walking by- the view of those walking and construction was the highlight … the lobster was good and thankfully I overheard I should ask for more sauce! Skip the misery and go to Magnolias … and while there try the Fried Green Tomatoes!

Everything was fabulous! From the wait staff (Fabian was wonderful!) to the presentation of the food, to the choices on the menu to the liquor selection. This was a special occasion with a meeting of friends I went to college with and had not seen in maybe 28 years! High Cotton did not disappoint on any level and we will certainly be returning sooner than later. Thank you for making this occasion extra special the way only Charleston can do.

It did NOT disappoint!!! Not only was it the best brunch we had over the 4 days we were there, but the service was impeccable. Everyone was so friendly and attentive. It was such a cute restaurant, as well. Loved the atmosphere. Food was excellent! If we had discovered this on our first day we probably would have gone back again :) Highly recommend!
