Re: “Blossom

We had a group of 7 down at Blossom last weekend and were pleasantly surprised with the meal. It had been a year or two since the last time we were there and felt that the restaurant and the menu were slightly dated and had not returned since that time. The menu, while manageable in size, still included enough variety to satisfy the 11 year old to 78 year old diners in our group.

The appetizers of oysters, calamari and spinach/artichoke dip were tasty and adequate in portion size to share for the table. The main dishes ranged from Shrimp to Pizza to Gnocchi and all were created with obvious care and consideration of subtle variations in taste.

The waiters and staff were knowledgable and attentive even in a very crowded and busy setting.

All in all; a very nice evening out.

Re: “Shem Creek Bar and Grill

I can't believe they would set a trap for raccoons - - raccoons live in the marsh and this particular restaurant is course located on the marsh/creek. They probably have a rodent problem too if all of these animals are hanging around. Rarely do I have seafood that is fresh or tastes any good at a restuarant. I've heard horror stories about food poisoning from AW Shucks. I prefer to cook it myself.

Re: “Acme Lowcountry Kitchen

Great food Great Service and One Heck of a Great place. I always like the opinion of curstormers that complain about the little things. Always blow nothing into something, because they have nothing better to do. Maybe take a deep breath and Enjoy the freash air every once in awhile. Figured if your nose is that far in the air, it shouldnt be that much trouble. If I had to wait two hours to eat here I would. But if I was in such a hurry that I didt have time to sit down an enjoy myself and the fresh air, I should have just stop at MickeyD's. But thats right I went out to sit down and eat a meal, so that means I'm not in a hurry. Great food takes time, we all know this. Would rather wait on a Great meal, but thats me. I say if you dont like it dont go back Period. It's that simple. But anyone that knows good food and Likes to eat this is the place to be. It's got a down home feel with GREAT food at a Great price. Just go see for yourself and make up your on mind.

Re: “Hyman's Seafood

Hyman's Seafood is the worst restaurant in the Southeast. It is a tourist trap that prides itself on having a line out the door; which is probably because management closes 75 to 90 percent of the restaurant in order to create this illusion of grandeur. The food is crap, the service crappier, and the thought of even going back makes me sick to my stomach. With all that said Hyman's Seafood = Shit Food, Shit Service, and a Shittier Experience. Sorry for my french; but it's hard to get ones opinion out when there is no option for negative stars.

Re: “Amen Street Fish and Raw Bar

Living in Louisiana for most of my life I thought I had enjoyed the best seafood but after dining at Amen and having the seafood platter now I know I've had the best seafood.The shrimp, hush puppies,creamed corn,oysters, and flounder is excellent....

Re: “Folly Beach Shrimp Company

I had the pleasure of dining at Lazo's on Tuesday of this week, and am about to go back today. Some of the many parts of a great meal at a restaurant include the ingredients, the preparation, the service, and the atmosphere. So, the ingredients can't be beat at Lazo's. I had shrimp and grits for breakfast--organic shrimp produced by the restaurant's own team, on the best hominy I've ever had. I could eat this every day for a month. Then put together so well, cooked just right. Delivered with love for the customer to a table outdoors under the most amazing blue sky with the sounds of surf, birds, and happy Folly Beach revelers. This meal was elegant in all these respects, yet in a totally casual, typically Folly Beach kinda place. (My wife and two young sons enjoyed theirs as much as I did!)

Re: “Shem Creek Bar and Grill

WTF is up with this place (last 2 comments)

Re: “Shem Creek Bar and Grill

The owner and the management of this establishment completely disrespected a large group of my friends when they went there yesterday to have some drink later in the evening. The managers said to them: Your 'kind' is disrupting Mount Pleasant and the only reason you are in this country is because my father fought in the war. This was one of many comments made to my friends (the group consisted of varying cultures of young people who just wanted to have a good time) before RUDELY kicking them out. Comments were made about gays being in allowed in the military and so forth. When I went there again to file a complaint, the owner told me to GET OUT NOW after finding out what my complaint was about. They threatened to call the COPS on me because I was inquiring about their rude and disrespectful behavior. I was not hostile and didnt come there to discuss anything or prove a point, I just wanted to talk to the manager. The male GM basically made me back out of there while continuing to threaten me and then verbally assualted me outside with random comments that completely were unneccesarry. This place is a dump in general and this just makes it intolerable. Please do not go eat there and give them your money because they obviously have no respect for people...who are all well educated and contributors to this economy in many great ways. Majority of them are either in the Air Force or work for the federal government...so how is it that WE DO NOT BELONG THERE??????

Re: “Fish

Wife & I were terribly disappointed during a recent visit. Dim sum arrived cold and kind of rubbery. Salad and and fish entree were extremely salty. We won't go back.

Re: “Buddy Roe's Shrimp Shack

I have been a fan of Ronnie's and Kim's for many years. The food and music is wonderful. This is the most laid back place in Mt. Pleasant. I like the fact that it is for the middle age crowd. I have never met anyone in Buddy Roe's out of line. Everyone seems to enjoy each other's company. You will leave there meeting new friends and when you go back you feel right at home.

Love this place!!!!!

Re: “Acme Lowcountry Kitchen

No stars, just a comment. I just get the feeling that ACME is run like it's more a hobby than a business. It's a bike ride for me so I'll be back. If I had to get in a car, I wouldn't be back. I'll just manage my expectations a little better.

Re: “Morgan Creek Grill

Great place for a sunset dinner. Better in the off season, but that goes for most places in the chs area. Have dinner then head upstairs for a drink and take in the sunset. Food was good and service great.

Re: “Fish

Fish is one of the very fine restaurants in the Upper King Design District. Master French Chef Nico Romo's preparation and presentation are second to none in Charleston. The ambiance of the recently re-decorated restaurant and bar is elegant and sophisticated and the wine selections are appropriate, affordable and described in detail by the wait staff.

Re: “Acme Lowcountry Kitchen

WOW! Recently went to Acme on a Thursday night, had no idea they served all you can eat crab legs. Figured for 19.99, why not? I was really surprised. The snow crab legs they served were GIANTS! Not the little tiny legs you get at most restaurants like Red Lobster and Joe's Crab Shack. I could easily crack these with my hands and the entire section of meat came right out. Did not even need the little fork. Service was good, prices were good, only had water to drink. I will be going back, no questions asked.
