We had lunch here while touring the garden.My wife had the Pavillion special sandwich and I had BLT. Both were large and very good. Never seen so much bacon on a BLT. We liked it so much we went back the second day.

I don't usually want to eat at a "museum" restaurant. After a lovely tour of Brookgreen Gardens, we decided to give Pavillion a try. The She Crab soup was outstanding as was the Shrimp and Grits. The prices were very fair and we had great service. The food was hot and fresh. We joked that because the ticket to Brookgreen... More

Wanted to grab a quick lunch at the sit down restaurant, but that turned into a 45 minute wait for our food which was mediocre at best. We didn't get any drink refills while we ate and no one checked in with us. The whole experience took an hour and 15 minutes which ate into our other planned activity time.... More

My husband and I ate here for lunch. We started with the nachos, which were yummy. They had the right amount of toppings. Then my husband had the she crab soup, while I had the shrimp and grits. They were some of the best we have ever had, and we are from Charleston, so that is saying a lot.

We usually tolerate sub-par or even bad service if the food and drinks are good. This time however, neither were good. It started with us waiting 20 minutes before a waitress taking our order for drinks and appetizers. My wife and I both ordered martinis. Both drinks were tasteless and frankly bad. The waitress hit my wife’s drink with the... More

They offer sandwiches, soups, salads, and desserts. It's right next to the sculpture galleries. The place was pretty packed! My parents and I split the Hot Crab Dip appetizer (three cheeses, claw meat, with pita chips). The dip was great! We loved the pita chips. My dad ordered the egg salad sandwich with chips. My mom ordered the chicken salad... More

This is a great little cafe with a variety of quiches, sandwiches and the best she crab soup we get anywhere. With the size of Brookgreen Gardens, this is a most pleasant and convenient lunch while you are visiting.

What a glorious evening, starting off with a fantastic dinner. Make sure that you come here this year and purchase your tickets online. They have done it up beautifully. Our food was phenomenal and the ambience is so festive! We are so glad that we came!
