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.
Every time is good time. I had the jambalaya box to go. It was plentiful, with a small little salad extra and to boot, they threw in an extra piece of cornbread. This is on the short list for weekly visits.
I love places like this. Small and the staff couldn't be friendlier. I've eaten there 4 times and recommend it to everyone I work with. I've had the Gumbo, Jambalaya, Crawfish Etouffee, Hot Sausage Po Boy and the Catfish Po Boy. My favorite was the Crawfish Etoufee. The prices are fantastic and the first time I went they insisted on giving me a side of their Mac & Cheese and Bread Pudding. I loved the Mac & Cheese and I can't say I've eaten a lot of Bread Pudding but this stuff was so moist.
this place kicks much ass. Go for the express lunch and you can try several traditional dishes. Great food and a really nice family that runs the place. I'm SURE they will make anything as spicey as you want!
OK ..... the Crescent Connection, well what can I say other than they rule!. I had the shrimp po'boy for lunch today. It was by far the best po'boy I have had since leaving the Louisiana bayou country and arriving in the Charleston low country. It was served with seasoned fries and was like going home for the holidays. There used to be a place in the NO quarter called Johnny's before the storm that made the best po'boys I ever had and this was as close to it as I've had since.
If you like south Louisiana cuisine done homestyle and right, this is THE place to go. Cheers to chef Iran.
This place is ok... it sucks they have to dumb down the spicyness of their food. We had Chix Creole, Red beans n' rice, Jambalya, Greens (I did order the mac & cheese but didn't get it???) Sadly they are using some canned foods (the greens) and the Chix Creole was lil more (can)tomatoey than I cared for.
However, the cornbread was super yummy. The crawfish potatoe salad was awesome (needed more spice). I did not have the specials on the board. I may give this place one more try and get the board special.
If you're in the mood for really good Cajun food, you'll love the Crescent Connection.
Never been disappointed here. Always a good selection and terrific wait staff
Wow! Boyfriend and I ate at the Glass Onion recently and had an excellent meal, great wine and terrific service. We will be back!
I ate the Crescent Connection for the first time this weekend and the food was delicious! I ordered the Crawfish Etoufee and the Gumbo. The service was great and they serve a wonderful Magnolia Punch. The cornbread was really most and tasty. Also you have to try the Crawfish Potato Salad and the Jimbalaya. The servers were really nice. Everyone please support his business. The food and service are great! Genuine New Orleans flavor. I absolutely LOVE this place.
