If I could give this place less than one star, I would. Overpriced, terrible food, poor service and a balcony full of stinkbugs. The view is nice, but eating at this place is not worth it!! Worst food I had all weekend.

This is a great place. Beautiful views of the bridge. Has variety of cocktails and some appetizers. Duck nachos were good. The waitress we had did not smile. If she did I would have given five stars..

A great location to drink, eat and watch the city. We were lucky to be there for the solar eclipse. It was a wonderful afternoon - one I will remember always.

Perfect place to go for a drink and take in the view. The food seemed overpriced for what it was. The view is worth visiting for.

The best view in Charleston! We loved having drinks on the roof top looking down on the city. A beautiful view of the most spectacular Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge.

Bit spendy and usually slow service. But beautiful views and setting. Usually take all visitors there for a cocktail before going to dinner downtown.

This place was definitely proud of its location. The drinks are over priced, probably because of the view it offers. Lots of locals hang out here, but overpriced. I have hung out in places in Paris and Istanbul less expensive than this place. Just saying.

Very nice location with a stunning view of the city and the river. Very exciting to see Charleston from a different perspective. Full bar of drinks at mid-range prices. They also serve food ... which looked very nice. But we were here just for drinks...More

Such a great rooftop! Had the best ambiance and sunset view that we enjoyed each night of our stay at the hotel. We went to the Grand Bohemian hotel and rooftop one afternoon and it didn't even compare to our hotel and rooftop. We were...More

I'm guessing but doubt if they take reservations for the Pavilion. You can check (ph. call) but when they have a big crowd you can still stand @ the bar until a table or seating opens up.
