High Cotton - Charleston Ratings and Reviews

Another simply wonderfully dining experience in Charleston. We had no idea that High Cotton was associated with Hall’s Chophouse. Up until now Hall’s has been our # 1 restaurant…with number # 2, High Cotton, visible on the horizon. Yesterday we visited High Cotton a 2nd time for the Bluegrass Brunch.
Well, now we have two number # 1s. Both are excellent in every facet of the ultimate dining experience: gracious reception by wonderfully charged and upbeat personnel; no delays in seating; great bar/great drinks and personnel staffing; endless TLC before/during/after dining by the best trained staffs we have experienced in Charleston; cleanliness and décor. An endless list of accolades.
We are dining at Hall’s Chophouse again next weekend. Are we lucky or what!!

Went for Sunday brunch when my parents were in town. Beautiful place, delicious food, and really great bluegrass band playing. The music made a really great backdrop, it was enjoyable but not overpowering. Everything about our time there was great, I'd love to go again sometime.

We were very fortunate that some chefs from Louisiana had recently visited High Cotton and helped the kitchen create the most delicious Turtle Soup I've ever tasted! My dining companions all wished they had ordered it so I hope they will add it to their regular menu. The Filet Mignon was outstanding, as were the Scallops. The side dishes are quite generous and could easily be shared. I look forward to dining at High Cotton the next time we visit Charleston.

We have enjoyed many great meals at High Cotton, but this one wasn't the best.
Service - our server was skilled and attentive. We had a rather young wine which he offered to decant and the wine got better and better with time. When a part of my wife's meal was served too early, he had it removed and represented at the right time.
Wine - The wine was an Achaval Ferrer from down Mendocino way, which seemed very, very young, but it opened up well and by the time the steak was available, it was very tasty.
Food - My wife has a bit of an eating problem and had Crab Soup as an appetizer and the fried oyster appetizer as her entry. The soup she described as solid but not special. The oysters we took home with us. I ordered the crab stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer, a Caesar salad, and the prime rib eye steak. There are six stuffed mushrooms delivered in a terrine. It is a good size for sharing. But the sauce on the mushrooms was so overwhelming, I couldn't taste the crab - but it was all crab- not overly breaded. Also, the four mushrooms on the corners were good, but the two in the middle were cold. The Caesar salad was OK, but I prefer shaved Parmesan rather than grated, and black anchovies rather than white. My Caesar the night before at the Boathouse on Isle of Palms was better. Finally, the steak - cooked as requested, delivered warm, tender as prime, seasoned in a way that was certainly acceptable but not steakhouse quality. I knew I should have had the duck. I always get the duck, but thought I'd branch out.
Ambience - We love the restaurant, it's atmosphere and viewing the busy Charleston streets
Overall a good, but not great experience - we've had many better here.

Loved the decor of this place, and it was perfect for a girls' brunch. We got the half bottle of champagne, which comes with a few different juices- this was a nice touch. The food was fine. My crab cake Benedict was good, my my mom's eggs were overcooked. The maple bacon donuts did not taste like bacon at all.

We had the best brunch here during our stay in Charleston. My husband got the shrimp and grits while I had the brioche French toast. I cannot emphasize enough how delicious everything was. The shrimp were cooked perfectly. The French toast was TO DIE FOR!! You will not be disappointed!

We were in Charleston for vacation and High Cotton was recommended to us. I believe it was everyone's favorite restaurant!!!!! Fabulous food with a friendly and helpful server. Everything was top notch. We would definitely go back when in Charleston!

High Cotton was recommended by our Hotel. We were very excited to go to this restaurant after checking out the menu. We were very disappointed in the fish. I ordered the fresh Halibut and when it came it was so over cooked that I could not eat. The rest of the meal was good and the service was great.
Someone mentioned that you don't order fish in Charleston unless it is a southern recipe that calls for frying!!!
