Re: “Foster's Pub

I will get Craigs back on the craft beer issue. I work for one of the local distributors and understand the frustrations of craft beer supply and demand. Most of these quality craft beers are made in small batches. And in some cases it's just a transport issue. 99% of the time it's because whomever is distributing a particular craft is out of stock. A large percentage of that is either the brewery not keeping up with demand or transport issues! It's not the restaurant/bars fault!

Re: “Foster's Pub

just a note to anyone reading these reviews, i apologize for any inconvenience, and I would love the chance to make it up to you. But, i do have to defend a few things, I pride myself on my selection of craft beers. If we are ever out of stock on a specific brew, it is because distributors are not able to keep stock in every item all the time. In which case, I can order but not receive products, much like any other store in the world. It just happens, but i always have similar or other options. As far as our fish and chips, there was no excuse to take that much time to inform you of an issue. If you would care to come back and try it, i will gladly pay for it. On Sunday evenings from 5-8 p.m. we do offer a shag party with a live DJ. this is an attempt to reach a different and older demographic during a time period in which the younger crowd usually is not in a local pub. Shag night has been very successful and will continue to football season. Please feel free to come by and see me, Craig Foster, and voice any concerns. I will do my best, as I have and will continue to, make sure each and every customer has a great experience every time they visit Foster's Pub

Re: “Foster's Pub

Wow, Wish I could post (zero) stars! What a waste of time. I was told when they opened the food was great, and the craft selection was huge. I could not get in till now and I am sorry to say I wish I never had. I am not sure what has changed from then till now, but the dinner that I and four friends had was sub standard at best. The service was lacking. The best craft's were out of stock. Please don't waste your time, money, or taste buds as we did.

Re: “Closed for Business

We stopped in Saturday night for dinner and a few drinks. I agree the drinks were pricey, even for the high quality choices. I had the pork slap and it was very good as was the interesting pickle slaw that I had with it. The duck pot pie was good, but tasted more of mushroom than duck. It was a pleasant experience overall, but not what I would call outstanding.

Re: “Closed for Business

Visited on a Friday afternoon about 6pm (early dinner). We had the Pork Slap and fried chicken sandwich. Both were delicious. The chicken was fried really "lightly" and not greasy at all. I had the green beans as a side with mine and didnt want to share any of them!! Had a couple of the Abita beers that they were promoting where all $$ from the sales of those went to Gulf coast clean up. The Andygator was yummy! Very friendly and knowledgeable waiter...i think his name was Andrew (?) He made suggestions and let me sample of couple of beers to make up my mind what to order. Most of the sandwiches are about $9, so not too pricey. Yes, the craft beers may be pricier than the PBR or Miller Lite you can get elsewhere, but you know, here you get what you pay for....!!

Re: “The Mill

Argh,Old Blackbeard here to talk about me favorite subject.....Certain types of manure used to be transported (as everything was back then) by ship. In dry form it weighs a lot less, but once water (at sea) hit it. It not only became heavier, but the process of fermentation began again, of which a by-product is methane gas.

As the stuff was stored below decks in bundles you can see what could (and did) happen; methane began to build up below decks and the first time someone came below at night with a lantern. BOOOOM!

Several ships were destroyed in this manner before it was discovered what was happening.

After that, the bundles of manure where always stamped with the term "S.H.I.T" on them which meant to the sailors to "Ship High In Transit." In other words, high enough off the lower decks so that any water that came into the hold would not touch this volatile cargo and start the production of methane. You can fill me tip jar to show thanks for the info.

Re: “The Mill

I think that if you are mad that you were kicked out you need to put on your big girl panties and stop complaining and flat out making up immature lies. #1 Wally would never allow drugs to float around in his bar (HIS BUSINESS) #2 All the bartendera watch out for the other patrons and the bar to make sure no drunk idiot is going to cause a fight or get in the car and kill someone on the way home. I find it very funny that we have so many immature idiots out there who cannot handle themselves and when called out reduce themselves to getting online and bad mouthing a place that is freaking awesome. Hope you have a wonderful day and can one day grow up!

Re: “The Mill

Well, I've always made it a mission to avoid dicks and I count Gregg as my favorite bartender. Ever. So there.

He will be glad to kick to your ass out (and so will any of the other staff members) if you can't mind your manners; however, he'll let you keep your croakies if you don't sass him too much.

Re: “Foster's Pub

Always wanted to try this place. A banner out front was advertising Dale's Pale Ale (a favorite). Went inside to find deafening, bad beach music and a bunch of older people shagging. Strained to yell to bartender that I wanted a Dale's-no luck-out of all Dales.
Then ordered Fish n Chips-supposed to be their specialty.
About 10 minutes later was told no fish and no slaw.
I promptly left with no plans to return.

Re: “The Mill

I am a bartender and I frequent The Mill. Actually, The Mill reminds me of a warm, delicious baked potatoe. The staff there is awesome. I always feel at home. It is quite SPUDOINKLEY!!!!! Robby is adorable, Paula is a sweetheart, Starla is to be envied, and old Blackbeard is truly the best guy I know. Watch out though, Blackbeard does eat children and rednecks!!!! Thank God and Wally for the mill. Pirates Rule!!!!

Re: “The Mill

I'm a regular. I go to the Mill at least 3 days a week for happy hour. I can vouch for the fact that the Mill is a bar, not a nightclub, not a place to show your face around, not a pick-up joint. It's the kind of place where anyone is welcome. My husband and I we're just there on Wednesday with three of our closest friends and his grandparents. We we're a mix of professional, school teacher, restaurant owner, and retirees. We we're all comfortable, we all found a drink to match our tastes, and we also enjoyed a little hummus and some chips and dip. This bar is where we bring contacts and have short meetings. In fact, I also hosted a fundraiser in this bar to raise money for locks of love. They are kind, generous, accepting people who make people feel welcome. I love all the bartenders, especially Greg, with the hair, and Miss Annie who just works Monday happy hour and has been working there before the bar had it's makeover and new ownership. And if all this was not enough, they have great live music and never charge a cover. I am a die hard Mill fan!

Re: “The Mill

We've all had bad experiences in various places. Who's to say you weren't wasted and didn't need another round?? The Mill is what it is. A great place to escape the everyday Charleston scene. Always a handful of bad ass regulars, ready to sit and have a drink with you. Always a solid bartender or two ready to serve ya up a cold one, and generally some live music (which seems to be extremely under appreciated in this town now-a-day) kicking every night!!! How can someone knock a bar that supports local art as much as The Mill?? Granted you can smoke in there...if ya don't dig, ya don't have to go in!!! Welcome to North Chuck, where the local Gov doesn't sticks it's nose into everything a private business can and can't do...Grow up, and race back to City Bar...oh wait, that s*&thole closed down...how about anywhere else on East Bay Street? less Big John's of course (love ya!)..May The Mill rock on!! Ol' Blackbeard too!!
