After reading other reviews of this restaurant, I 'm wondering whether we're all talking about the same place. Blossoms and its sisters, Magnolia and Cyprus, are all owned by the same guy and he does know what he's doing. Each place has its unique flavor, but there are similarities as well -- the service is routinely excellent at all 3, and the menu selections are broad and appealing to a wide range of palettes (even vegetarians). I'm a meat and seafood guy, and have never been disappointed here. I prefer to eat on the patio where you can hear a trickle of water running through the brick wall and even have a tiny frog or lizard join you for dinner (makes for fun dinner conversation). The patio is for romantic dining; the dining room for more formal affairs. The wine list is excellent (though Cyprus' is better). Grand dining in the upscale lowcountry style.

2.5 stars. The food here is hit or miss. Some entrees are really delicious like the southern whole fried fish and the fresh catch with the garden pesto sauce. That pesto sauce is delicious. Their biscuits and iron skillet mussels are good. Their fish and chips and shrimp and grits were mediocre. This restaurant gets busy on the weekends so I would suggest having a reservation. It's loud and the dining is casual. Service was good every time I've been here. Parking is weird, there is a small private lot (15-20 cars max) that's a one way. So you drive in to look for a spot, then find nothing and you have to reverse your car to get out.... that's if there are no cars behind you.
I recently visited the Charleston area and was enjoying the market there in the city where I worked up a big appetite, spoke to a few locals about fresh seafood and was refered to try out The Noisy Oyster right on the corner at the end of the Market. I walked into a friendly environment was greeted at the door and sat down by the spacious open bay windows overlooking the streets. I tried the Chef's Lunch which was a Mahi Burrito with a side of creamy grits and was very satisfied with the meal. I met the Chef Riley and he informed me that the resturant does daily Lunch specials and Dinner specials. Overall I had a great lunch and would recommend this resturant to others to try.
