LOVED,LOVED LOVED Hank's!!! Once we ate there-- we were HOME for the remainder of the week. and, the Community table was a great option. Very delicious food, great service, tasteful, yet un-stuffy atmosphere. We will BE THERE next visit to Charleston.
This place is basically a Captain D's on Shem Creek, except for the fact that Captain D's has much better food and service...and AC!
Inspired by today's article, I thought I should add my 2 cents. I couldn't care any less about the paper plates, the lack of AC, or the difficulty in finding the joint. In fact, I love a good dive! The problem here is that the food is terrible and way overpriced for what you are getting. I went two weeks ago with a party of 10 and not a single person enjoyed their meal. The fried seafood was soggy and tasted like old grease. Not appealing at all. The "grilled" seafood was even worse. Covered in something that I couldn't identify, it had a harsh, burnt taste. I hate to be so brutal, but this was probably the worst meal I've ever eaten in Charleston.
Love Snappers. I go every time I'm on Folly. The only place to be.
My new favorite fish place........spectacular! yum!!!
I found the decor the one thing that looked great.... a bit contrived (since it was built just a few years ago I found out.... made to look old). The service was OK not what you would expect from a pricy restaurant like this, I am a stickler for good AND attentive wait-staff. The food was mediocre.... we went to Hyman's Seafood the day after and found all the things we lacked at Hank's.... fantastic service, great food, HUGE variety for a fraction of the price at Hank's. After having tried Hyman's I will stick with them when it comes to local seafood!
I have followed Ronnie for years and he just gets better. Buddy Roe's is his best venue yet. Great music, great food and great FUN!
I have known Ronnie Johnson since the early 80's when we both worked together in Wild Dunes. I've been to 3 clubs that he has owned, 2 in Mt. Pleasant, and 1 on Isle of Palms and I must say the current location is my favorite! At the gateway to Sullivan's Island, with a great outdoor deck, putt putt course, great entertainment (thanks for bringing Robert Hutto back to the area), wonderful food-the best fried shrimp around! Staff is very friendly, and Ronnie is always around to greet and chat with his customers.
It's a great low-keyed, casual and comfortable environment, love the deck, great oyster roasts, and overall a great place to hang with friends, meet new friends, enjoy good food, and fabulous entertainment. I am in my late 40's and lots of people my age there.
And no Josh, I am not getting free food for posting this review, I like to support those that I know have worked very hard to be the success that they are!!!
buddy roe's must be giving free shit away to everyone that posts something on their city paper profile.
Best place I have ever eaten, it is the bomb, from the entertainment to the food. It is awesome, check it out!!
Great food and great atmosphere. Entertainment unusrpassed anywhere in the Charleston area.
You have got to be fucking kidding me.
I live in Columbia and come to the IOP several times a month and wouldn't think of going anywhere but Buddyroes. It has the best atmosphere, food and friendliest people. The best place to party in Charleston.
I have known Ronnie for over 20 years. He is a great singer, entertainer and just an awesome guy! With his music he will get you off your feet and you will have a fabulous time dancing the night away...or just watch others making 'a fool' of themselves (the gator!!!) He and his beautiful wife Kim are wonderful people and you just can't help but love them!
I've never eaten at Buddy Roe's but I hear the food is great. I go b/c Ronnie and Kim are great people, the staff is friendly and hard working, and the music is always excellent. The sound system in this room is exquisite and the people working it know what they're doing. You can go and listen to songs you know and love played by highly accomplished musicians and you can hear original music by artists we should all know but probably don't. I'm a music lover and I love Buddy Roe's!
I have known Ronnie Johnson for over 20 years. He is an awesome singer and person! I have followed him from Edgars at Wild Dunes to his newest venue Buddy Roes! Some of his covers are better than the original artist! Buddy Roes has a great, laid back, friendly atmosphere. The food is tasty and the entertainment is excellent. I highly recommend this establishment. Words can't express what an awesome experience Buddy Roes provides! Wish I could go there more often!
I've been going to Buddy Roe's for about 4 years now and absolutely LOVE IT!! They always have great entertainment and good food. Love the outside deck. If you want to dance the night away this is the place to come to. Ronnie and Kim Johnson are very good, down to earth,honest people. I very highly recommend Buddy Roe's. Diana Talbott
Great for lunch, dinner and music. Always a good crowd! Oysters and Carroll Brown are great on Sunday nights.
great food, great music, great times!!
WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
We love to go to Buddie Roe's as much as we can for good times. There is always live entertainment with a great mixture of music that is great.
The atmosphere is laid back and feels like your in a bar in Key West Fl. Much dancing & drinking all night long.
Food is great, especially the shrimp baskets. This is also a great place to have a rehearsal dinner, office party or other function. Kim Johnson & the staff will work with you to put together a menu that works for everyone.
Ronnie Johnson has been entertaining people in the area since i moved here in 98. I have been going to see him sing or to one of his bars since then. Thanks for all of the great times!
