This place remains unchanged by time: lazily spinning paddle fans, lush palm trees, and exposed brick walls. Chef Shawn helms the kitchen, serving up regional classics like Lowcountry boil and bacon-wrapped stuffed rabbit loin. If you want a traditional dinner, there are thick cuts of steaks and chops with your choice of sauce and side dishes like fried brussels sprouts and creamy white corn grits. For dessert, the pecan pie baked with bourbon brown sugar caramel and the high-rising peanut butter pie are like rich Southern blessings. And don't miss brunch, which is one of the best in town.

Good bar but too many great restaurants in Charleston to waste your time here. Super disappointed. It wasn't good. I hosted 15 work colleagues in Feb. from all over the southeast and no one had a great meal. Service was slow, granted we had a large party but if the food had been awesome the wait would not have mattered. Go across the street to SNOB or around the corner to Hank's.

Excellent presentation, beautiful surroundings and excellent service. Tuna Tartare was innovative and well conceived. Duck breast was perfectly cooked and the ginger infused apples were a great counterpoint. Souffle was very tasty if a bit too sweet.

An elegant experience from beginning to end. Jazz playing in the background, a fine dining clientele, a great menu and great food. Our waitress was very friendly and took very good care of us. I travel for a living and have eaten at restaurants all over the world ... High Cotton is definitely a great restaurant.
