Re: “Fish

FISH has become one of my favorite restaurants in Charleston. Each and every time I dine with them, my expectations are met and surpassed, something that rarely happens on a consistent basis with any restaurant.
The staff understands the meaning of customer service, their prices very affordable and the food absolutely amazing! I look forward to each new season of their menus. The tuna tartare has to be the best in Charleston, and believe it or not, the ribeye steak is one of best I have had lately. If you haven't tried FISH since the renovation and arrival of Executive Chef Nico Romo, you are doing yourself a disservice.

Re: “Fish

I LOVE FISH!!!!! The staff is so nice and the food has been terrific EVERY SINGLE TIME! The servers are well informed and very pleasant. My husband and I love to go there for a terrific meal without the stuffy atmosphere and prices of other downtown restaurants. Ps- those ice cream sandwiches are AMAZING. They make food people people like to eat! People like ice cream!

Re: “Fish

Went to Fish last night and...what are these people talking about! I have actually been going here for years and never had a bad meal or experience. The service is great and the food even better! Last night they had live music, hard to find this time of year. Steamed clams were delicious, I did have to ask for more bread, but they had no problem bringing it out. For dinner I had the Coq au vin and no complaints. Love you Fish!!!

Re: “Amen Street Fish and Raw Bar

Alright I will admit it, I went to have lunch at SNOB but when told the wait was 45 minutes decided to give Amen a ring and so glad I did. Richard and the great Architects firm GTG did an amazing job and did the City justice when they conceived this restaurant. This isn’t just a restaurant with platters of food, there is an amazing story which serves as the foundation. The Fried Green tomatoes were a refreshing, shrimp local and salad well proportioned and priced. Though in the thick of tourist central I bumped into an equal amount of locals. The service was sharp but not intrusive, management visible and the chef intently surveying his patrons. As the review said, visit now before the season begins!

Re: “Fish

It's unfortunate that the owner/manager/whatever he is has to be so arrogant. It really ruins the dining experience....but then again the food is very hit or miss. One day it's the best meal I've ever had and the next it's the worst. Fingers crossed they get rid of Mr. Arrogant and concentrate on consistency.

Re: “Hank's Seafood Restaurant

My plate of mixed seafood was nice, if a bit overpriced, and the seating was very nice, but my waitress was terrible.

Re: “Red's Ice House

Great place for fun and the good life with drinks, friends, and lots of seating on outdoor decks right on Shem Creek! Watch the sunset and enjoy a beer or two, then stay to party with live bands in the dark.

Re: “Fish

My husband and I were new to the Nosh Mobbers but not new to Fish. It was, however, a unique experience to go behind the scenes and learn why it is one of our favorite places. Of course, it starts with the Staff, who could not make one feel more welcome. It is obvious they care about the locals, something important in this tourist town. As for the food, we now know how and why we get the highest quality with the most reasonable prices: They can afford to help us afford their freshest of the fresh catch because of their catering business at the Aiken House and Lowndes Grove facilities. When the unique French/Asian background of Chef Nico is added to the mix, the result is heavenly, without sky high prices. We put ourselves at his Mercy for his Tuesday night special and could not have been happier we did. We will definitely go FISHing again and again. Archie and John Burkel

Re: “Amen Street Fish and Raw Bar

Stoney's $900k renovation of this place, right next to High Cotton, is a must see. Gorgeous bar area with great food at low prices. Look out Oak and Hall's! The oysters were unlike anything we've tasted in the Lowcountry. Highly recommended bar for early or late evening drinks. Filled with local professionals and southern belles as well. Great addition to East Bay Street corridor.

Re: “Amen Street Fish and Raw Bar

Locals don't have to go to upper King to have fun anymore. Amen Street is a bar with great food. It's all about fresh seafood. There's no chicken on this menu. If you want to have fun with the beautiful people, say Amen.

Re: “The Wreck of the Richard and Charlene

Went to he wreck on 31 Oct 09, got seated and waited over 15 minutes and no one ever came over to offer to offer drink or anything, later two other couples came in and where promptly seated and served, did not get a chance to taste the food at all, but U did see the cook mishandling shrimp with his bare hand upon entering the restaurant, I would highly not recommend this restaurant for some on who is looking for somewhat decent customer service

Re: “The Wreck of the Richard and Charlene

Remember going here with some friends maybe 5-6 years ago who had come down to Chas for the weekend, and I remember us having a blast, eating some good cheap food, drinking a cold beer and sitting out in the open air at sunset. I know it wasnt expensive, bc we were all broke college kids. Well, I went there recently and was completely and utterly SHOCKED that they now feel they can charge $18.00 for the Charlene(small) portion of fried shrimp!? On a paper plate, no less. We didnt stay to eat after that sticker shock! I'm not a food snob, I love some fried shrimp as much as everyone else, and will gladly pay a higher price for fine food, but unless they are donating half of that $18 to charity, I cant say they can justify those kinds of prices, or that I would recommend this place to anyone.
Sad what effect an overblown ego and a Southern Living write up can have!

Re: “The Wreck of the Richard and Charlene

I give it 2 stars because we didn't get food poisoning. The food was mediocre, at best, and we were shocked at the gall they have to charge the prices they charge for the quality, or lack thereof. As for the atmosphere, I don't discriminate over paper plates, but I do have a problem with filth and no air conditioning. If you don't enjoy sweating profusely and dripping on your food, go elsewhere. Furthermore, the touted "Shem creek views" were non existent, due to the overgrowth of weeds covering the screens surrounding the "dining room." Seeing the place is the only way to believe the atmosphere. Not one penny has been spent to upgrade a building that should be condemned. How they pass health inspections is beyond me.

Re: “Hyman's Seafood

Poor tourists, this is the place locals would never eat. Please do not fall for the one good review the place received from a magazine sometime in the 1980's. Save some time, instead of standing in line, just head to the nearest Captain D's drive-thru - the food and service will be noticeably much better.

Re: “Hyman's Seafood

Agreed... When I lived in Charleston, pre-Hugo-we steered clear... Then the day after Hugo, when we were trying to figure out if there were any survivors (there were), this place was still in business cleaning out their refrigerators on Meeting Street (for a price) Can't figure out why.

Re: “Hyman's Seafood

Overrated and despicable tourist trap that deserves to have it's kitchen staff commit suicide. In no way compares to the superior establishments in New England or Baltimore. Reliance on locally caught stock results in an effrontery of the palette seldom experienced in polite dining company. A wretched, horrid cacophony of culinary offenses that defy description.

Re: “Hyman's Seafood

Quite possibly the worst Charleston seafood scam since Hugo hit - perhaps even well before that. Avoid like the plague...
