Re: “Hucks Lowcountry Table

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.

Re: “Oscar's Restaurant

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.

Re: “Crescent Connection Bistro

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.

Re: “Crescent Connection Bistro

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.

Re: “Crescent Connection Bistro

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!

Re: “Crescent Connection Bistro

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.

Re: “Crescent Connection Bistro

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.

Re: “Crescent Connection Bistro

If you're in the mood for really good Cajun food, you'll love the Crescent Connection.

Re: “Crescent Connection Bistro

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.

Re: “Hominy Grill

Okay, I visited from Toronto, Canada and I have to say I was a bit disappointed. My family and I ordered brunch. It was very busy but the wait wasn't too bad. My sister ordered the pork chop special and it was rather dry and the sauce was nothing special, I had the eggs with grits, double smoked bacon and ordered a side of sausage. The double smoked bacon was good but only two slices, I expected maybe one more; the real disappointment was the sausage, tiny and horribly dry!! The real praise is for their desserts, my mother ordered the butter milk pie and I had the chocolate pudding. OMG, this could have been the best dessert I have ever tasted, the pudding was so rich and smooth!! I had a few bites of the buttermilk pie and I was impressed although I had nothing to compare it to. Next time I am in Charleston, I think I will just order dessert;)

Re: “Crescent Connection Bistro

The food was very bland. Do not bother to try this place.

Re: “Hucks Lowcountry Table

Just had to reply to the guy from Maryland. Hate to tell those Chesapeakers that they ran out of crabs years ago up ther and now they buy their crabs from down here.

Re: “Crescent Connection Bistro

My husband and i ate there last night and it was the best meal we have had in a long time. Fried green tomatoes, grits cakes, and a seafood platter for 2. The food was amazing, the service was great, and they even had Happy Hour specials!
Love it!
Will be back soon!

Re: “Hucks Lowcountry Table

I have to completely disagree with the last review. I've eaten at Huck's at least a half dozen times since they've opened and never had a bad meal. I'm originally from the northeast, have had the Maryland crab and find Huck's just as good. However, there is plenty of other great choices on the menu and I recommend the awesome fish tacos. As for waiting for a table; it is a small restaurant and reservations are definitely in order. I can understand waiting 45 minutes if you just show up and expect to be seated. Back to the food; the food has always been perfectly cooked and spiced and the wait staff and management come by and check on you all the time to make sure all is well. I highly recommend Hucks.

and no...I dont work there and I'm not related to anyone who does :)

Re: “Hucks Lowcountry Table

After waiting 45 minutes for a table we were eager to sample the food. We tried the fried oysters which are the best thing on the menu....the shrimp hushpuppies were a bland disappointment. Skip the crabcake and fried green tomato stack..it was terrible. My son and I had the CRAB STUFFED FLOUNDER, roasted john's island beet pilaf, old bay creme fraiche...all 6 at the table agreed it was just nasty...my husband had the duck which was dreary, undercooked (blood red) and underseasoned...During our 1 week stay we ate our way through Charleston and had some fantastic meals, but Hucks was the single worst dinner I've had in years...so disappointing! If you are from Maryland (as we are)do yourshelf a favor and skip anything with crabmeat. I'd skip this restaurant!
