About Us

Welcome to pure Charleston. Our heart pine floors, wide-bladed ceiling fans and walls of hand-made brick have been the signatures of Lowcountry high-life since antebellum times. Even our name is derived from plantation jargon for livin’ large. You can almost hear the echoes of local planters doing deals over glasses of brown whiskey. Our menu is hearty and southern, featuring regional favorites, steaks, game and fresh seafood – all prepared with the famous Maverick artistry. We’re also known for our award-winning wine selection and irresistible desserts. And don’t miss the High Cotton bar, one of the area’s most popular watering holes.

You’ll be livin’ large! Whether your event is personal or professional, an intimate dinner or a lively reception, every guest will leave High Cotton feeling a new connection to the historic spirit of Charleston dining.
