I Love The Glass Onion! Very reasonable prices considering the quality you're getting: farm-fresh eggs, local veggies, all-natural grass-fed beef--and now they're open til 10 on Fridays and Saturdays! You can always preview their seasonally changing menu at www.ilovetheglassonion.com.
I love this place for happy hour or dinner. For happy hour you really can't beat their french fries with parmesan & truffle oil...plus 1/2 price bar menu & drinks. LOVE it!!
THE BEST FOOD !!!
I've eaten at midtown twice for lunch and have been twice for drinks. Great BBQ and pimento cheese sandwiches and awesome sides like fried okra. The brunch menu looks really good and I've heard good reviews. I've been for happy hour on a Friday night which wasn't too busy and been in for drinks on a busy weekend, the outdoor patio is great and the waitresses are hot. The name says Bar and Grill and it's definitely a busy bar on weekend evenings. give them a try
I have visited twice before, once at 10pm on a Friday and again at midnight on a Thursday. The bar itself is nice with a cool outdoor patio in the back. The bartenders are OK, not the best, not the worst. Both times when I visited all the bartenders were males, no cute girls. The service was good and the bartenders are on par with the rest of Charleston I would say.
The bar itself has a good crowd, typically a younger crowd. I rate this bar as average, a neat spot but offering nothing really new or special. I don't see what they have to offer over the neighboring bar O'Malleys, which has much better food and service and doesn't feel as cramped.
Overall I would give a three-star rating

I could live off the boiled peanut hummus, what a fabulous idea! The chicken salad is a must; the BBQ amazing, and the brunch chimichanga is off the chain! Once you hit your mid-twenties it is hard to find a place that isn't full of college kids, guidos, or cougars, but Midtown is that place.
Consider myself somewhat of a a regular... take friends and family there all the time and love the great people, food and drinks there! I am 28 and never feel like the oldest or youngest, which is a feat in Charleston... love the food (could literally live on the pulled pork sliders)!
Took an out of town friend there for her birthday dinner in Decemeber and our excellent waitress was friendly and attentive... even bought my friend a birthday drink on her own tab! Looking forward to hitting the outside patio in the warmer weather, though it is always open for those who don't mind the cold... Definitely worth the visit, I see some unhappy reviewers on here, that is too bad, but as a restuarant that is less than a year old I think there are always some learning curves... everyone is working hard, having fun and making sure your time is as enjoyable as possible. Midtown is doing a great job already and it can only get better!
I arrived at Midtown for dinner last week around 8:15, only to hear the doorman told me it was "one in, one out." We waited for around 10 minutes, got in, and it was jam-packed with college kids all drinking ad nauseum. I had the fried chicken wrap and waited 25-30 minutes to get served. The food gets to the table and... it's crap. Cold and slimy. If you're looking for a bar that you can order shitty food in while you get trashed, Midtown is the place for you. Otherwise, save your money.
Been to Midtown a couple of times and definitely think they have done it right with the bar/restaurant feel. The food was very good and the atmosphere was really fun with the outside dining and bar. I would recommend the bbq sandwich, club sandwich or they also have a great Sunday brunch.
Yet another failed attempt at the restaurant/bar hybrid. The food is piss poor, place smells like spilled liquor, bad lighting, and loud as a steam engine. AVOID!
I just moved to West Ashley on the 6th, and I've been to The Glass Onion three times now. The country captain is one of the best meals I've ever had, and it's only $10! Their "fresh from the garden" salad is just that: I had never eaten tomatoes and cucumbers so sweet. The food is cheap and delicious, and the atmosphere is very cozy.
I, too, love Poogans. After many, many visits, I have never had a bad experience there and the Shrimp & Grits rank in the top in the city. I have taken 'non-locals' and they also raved! I guess any establishment can have an off day gratefully I've never had that experience at Poogans. Looking forward to going again in the next week or two, in fact!
Sign me up -- $50 for 5 courses -- UNBELIEVABLE! And that's local, all natural goodness...just look at the menu -- www.ilovetheglassonion.com -- DELICIOUS.
Great flounder with apricot sauce, however, other diner's dish (seabass over succotash)consisted of a square of underseasoned fish dropped on top of a few dozen bland beans in a watered down broth and definitely left something to be desired. Atmosphere was a little too dull for our taste. Would not go back as there are better options in this town.
For a special night out Peninsula Grill cannot be beaten. The food, wine, and service are outstanding. If I were to pick one place to eat traditional Charleston favorites this would be my number one choice. Expensive but worth it.
Best Sunday brunch in town!
I found the restaurant enticing and I had a cheeseburger at lunch that was quite acceptable.
I was recently staying in Isle of Palms and took my family to Huck's. We had a great experience. Wonderful wines! and the fried chicken is great. Had we stayed longer we would have visited more than once and will be returning on our next trip.
I give this restaurant a 10. Do yourself a favor and visit when in town.
Despite a menu that hasn't changed in years, the food and staff of Oscar's are superlative! Blending sophisticated southern atmosphere and cuisine with Americana and a touch of Tex-Mex, Oscar's is a "Don't Miss" locale for anyone making the pilgramage to Charleston's Sister City. I've been dining there for ten years and heartily recommend the Steak AuPoivre, Fried Calamari with peppers, Seafood Burrito, Fried Green Tomatoes and of course, the Smiling Burger with blue cheese. While most of the entrees are higher-end prices (and you consistently get what you pay for), the sandwiches, appetizers and fried shellfish are reasonable enough for any Friday night between paydays.
