Best out of town restaurant dining experience my wife and I have ever had! We dropped in after seeing the place while walking to another restaurant. I immediately recognized Chef Ross from our dining at Leaf. The place was full (I think reservations only), but Chef Ross sat us anyway and that began a dining experience without equal. It was like sitting in the Chef's kitchen and having him prepare a 5 course meal on the spot just for us. All the other diners were just as amazed. WOW! I'm telling you this is where we will head on our next trip to Charleston.
my biased opinion. Love it!
Southern Charm, Hopefully "You'All" came to your collective senses and increased
Your Stars Salaries, (Sir Thomas Ravenel and his Lady Love, Ms.Kathyrn Dennis) to appear on the
Next awaited with baited breaths , by the way-Season Opener of Southern Charm
If not please remember, the other cast members "pale" in comparison in
class, beauty and presence....looking foward to a breath of elegance, romance and
Glimpses of that sweet beautiful baby....Other reality shows
Are becoming absolute utter trashy, dismal and rather unpleasant and uniformed.
The political angle of hopefully having Mr. Ravenel run and win political office
Should be timely and interesting, at his worst, he is heads above some of the characters our county has running now.....(Spoken as a former President-Elect and
Board Member of The League of Women Voters in Jacksonville Florida)
Had an outstanding meal here last week. Would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to try new, interesting and fun food. The service was great and all in all one of the highlights of our trip! Can't wait to come back and try the new dishes as chef mentioned they change weekly.
We had a nice experience here for lunch. The cost of food has made it difficult for places like this to provide good food at a value. My wife had the lobster Po Boy and I had the grilled shrimp. The lobster was very lightly fried which is not an easy thing to do. Much easier, and most places do, batter heavy and fry the hell out of something. This was not the case. Really well prepared.
The shrimp was OK but a very small portion. The bread was at the end of it's freshness so really didn't eat much of it. The service was good to very good. As a rookie I didn't know to bring my parking ticket with to be validated so my server said "no problem, I'll get you a pass." Much appreciated.
As an old dog with lots of experience, it's obvious to me that this is a breakfast place and I can't wait to give it another try.
Great food at good prices. We were in Charleston for a week & ate here 3 times.
The fish & chips special on Friday is tasty. Burgers & pork chops are excellent.
The sides are inventive & don't miss the desserts. The service was excellent.
We are looking forward to eating here on our next visit in the spring
Great to go here, sit and watch the chef, chat, drink wine and enjoy the courses.
I must admit, this afternoon at Leon's, was a wonderful way to spend a Saturday afternoon. We sat at your oyster bar, and made me feel like I was at Acme's or Felix's oyster bar. The best part was we we're here in our own home of Charleston,
eating select oysters from Light House point I believe from Va. They were outstanding and sipping on a original Coors Banquet draft. Your entire wait staff made our dining experience even more pleasurable. I believe his name was Tom, great job by him, and your new bar keeper.
We ate a half dozen of the oysters, which were spot on, and we both had the 2 piece fried chicken, the best I've ever had, along with the Cauliflower soup, which will have me coming back for another bowl.
The oysters were very good..... The chicken was greasy and over spiced ... Had a dozen good oysters then the bill came at $70.00... Was still hungry sorry never again
Wonderful food and service. The pork chops are awesome! Quality food at reasonable prices.
Striving for authenticity of a neighborhood oyster house this falls flat. Expensive for what it is and the sides are lackluster.
Huge fan of this place. Everytime I have been the food has been spot on and the service good. Must try the shrimp toast, Siam salad, barley salad, and of course the sandwiches. Definitely a place to check out.
Well worth the visit. Some of the best oysters I've had in a long time.
Just had lunch at the GG and can add two things to the previous post:
Pork chops, fried rice and grilled mixed vegetables were absolutely yummy.
The over pouring server has been removed.
That being said, my personal policy is to no longer order mixed drinks anywhere that does not use measuring devices on their liquor, and post the amount measured.
Simply put, I need my license, I don't need a DUI, especially after trying to drink responsibly and stop after two drinks.
These servers that do this over pouring are not doing you any favors; their only interest is to get you more inebriated so you will tip more.
They could give a shit less about the legal problems that may cause you.
So very glad I got to eat the fried chicken and check out this creative and tasty new spot before work pulled me out of Charleston for a few months. It was one of the last things I did before leaving downtown and I can't wait to get back. Best of luck to Brooks and Tim!
Food is outdated and the drinks are not consistent. You can leave in a cab after 2 drinks. Which is great if you're into having a good time in 30 mins or less. If the owners don't change up the menu or the bartenders they may not be in business for long.
This place turns into your typical loud, expensive "club" on saturday nights. No thanks
Is this EVERY Saturday, or only when they have a band playing. Or do they have bands? I can't imagine a cover fee just to eat or drink there. I usually go to the Chas. Grill in Northwoods. Can someone clarify this one?
Love this place!!
