Re: “Montreux Bar and Grill

I'm usually a downtown guy, but I live in Summerville. I've always been skeptical of going to bars in my own area but I decided to give Montreax a try this past Friday night. I was surprised about how normal and young the clientele was, similar to being at a bar downtown. Had a few drinks which weren't expensive at all and had a great time with my friends. Definitely checking it out again.

Re: “Mynt

This club sucks if for some reason the bouncer or the Asian mafia there doesn't
Like your look. I was there and only for maybe 15 or 30 min. In that time I met some great fun people. Then I needed to use the restroom which is down a sketchy hallway. As I left 2 thugs grabbed me ,beat me and broke my rib. For no apparent reason. I was leaving the next day or I would have pursued an assault charge. I am planning on calling the local police there. But I am thinking it won't go anywhere. You are warned.

Re: “Rutledge Cab Co.

We’ve been to Rutledge Cab Co twice. Our first trip was the second weekend they were open….Yep, had to wait an hour but the bar was full and fun so it wasn’t a major hardship. Enjoyed the food and service, they were jammed so we gave them a break on having to wait longer than expected for our meal. We had dinner there last night, it was awesome. Fish Sandwich was the best I’ve had. Our friend loved the Chopped Salad. We got seated right away and the service was smooth. Looks like they’ve got it together. I really wanted to like this place...... Looks like Wagner Terrace has a new hangout and a good one at that.

Re: “Rutledge Cab Co.

Our dinner was less than inspiring, the kabobs were ok but boring, the wings were the same as was the burger. The food was just very mediocre. Their house red wine was decent and a relatively good buy. The cocktail I had was unique and I enjoyed it. I thought it was pretty loud inside and outside, but service was good. I will be back to try the all day breakfast options, though.

Re: “Rutledge Cab Co.

We thought RCC was great, and I have heard nothing but positives from everyone else I know who has been there. The grilled spicy wings were great, different than the usual fried variety. Drinks were also good and staff was all very friendly. I only saw a couple of menu items that looked over priced, one of which I ordered but it was still delicious. We will be back soon to try the burger, pizzas, and the BLT benedict...

Re: “Rutledge Cab Co.

We live a short walk away, so had high hopes for this new neighborhood hangout. They'd solved their initial teething problems with wait times and service by the time we visited -- waiters were attentive and food came out quickly -- but that's the best we can say about it. The cocktails we ordered -- three different drinks -- were all failures, with strange, synthetic flavors (mine tasted much like toilet freshener!). My wife ordered a spiked milkshake without looking at the price, and was shocked to discover it was $14, more than many of the entrees. The starters and mains we ordered were very bland: diner food that would be acceptable in another setting, but not at the prices we were paying. Everything was under-flavored and lacking in spark. The place was packed -- but I can't see it being that way in 6 months once the early excitement dies down, unless they do something dramatic with the menu. What a disappointment!

Re: “Ms. Rose's

The service was excellent- Tara took wonderful care of us and made fabulous recommendations! The food was very good, although not quite as great as expected. However the staff as well as the atmosphere more than made up for cuisine not meeting the (admittedly high) expectations I had. The outside dining area is also VERY cool- we will certainly be back when the weather warms up!

Re: “Ms. Rose's

this well appointed bistro has great rooms, booths and out door seating... the ribs were perfect last night and the beer compliments a great menu... ORIGINAL MS ROSE may be a new refurbished place, but it's a winner on Sam Rittenberg, Sue & I love it

Re: “Ms. Rose's

We've been there twice and found the service to be both friendly and attentive. The decor is really striking and I enjoy it. Their brunch benedict and chocolate french toast dishes were superb. The sausage sandwich is good but only if you like State Fair-level greasy. The bbq meatloaf sandwich is just as good as it sounds. The fried fish sandwich was a bit dry.

All in all, it is our current "go to" lunch spot for Sam Rittenburg-area shopping trips.

Re: “Ms. Rose's

I was so excited to try out Ms. Rose's and walked away disappointed.
The food was so so but the service was terrible. Our server forgot our appitizer, let our water glasses sit empty and we had to remind her we ordered a second round of cocktails.
We ordered the gnocchi and a ruben. I asked to subsitute the protien in the gnocchi and our server said there was an upcharge, which i expected but it was her delivery that threw me off. The gnocchi was good, lots of flavor. The ruben was just average. I will give them credit for their fries. They were awsome.
I won't rush back anytime soon.

Re: “The Rarebit

Drinks and ginger beer were yummy but a bit pricey. Didn't care for the food after it arrived, I was really excited because the burger was so fairly priced but when it came out it looked like I had just gone through the McDonalds drive thru. Was still hungry when we left.

Re: “The Rarebit

I like the atmosphere. I like the menu & I like the prices.
On a recent visit, my wife & I were seated for dinner. The service was good and staff was attentive. Food was lacking unfortunately.

My wife had the tomato soup & a BLT. Soup was very 'acidy' and needed some sweetness to offset this, consistency wise...it reminded me of marinara sauce. BLT- bread was over-toasted to the point of being brittle and overall sandwich was very dry for lack of mayo....a lot of bread & lettuce but weak on bacon. Please, leave the 3rd slice of bread out of the picture unless you plan on doubling up on the bacon.

I had the patty melt. It was tasty but small. Considering this is 2 beef patties, it is hard to imagine this rates even 1/3 of a pound. It would be a better offering cut into quarters and served as an app for about $5. The fries were fresh & hot, but personally, I do not care for the 'shoestring' style. They taste more of fry grease than potato and there was an over abundance of the burned-up, little crispy fries, as if I got the last of the run.

2 meals, a soup, 2 draft beers, and one signature drink(which was great)...in over $50 including tip and still hungry. Might be better as a lunch venue. I am rating 2 stars based on the food...if you want to take in the drinks maybe a 3.

Re: “Castaways Grille

I really wish I lived closer to Castaway's because it is such a chill, spacious bar for happy hour or to grab a bite. They have the usual pub fare but fancy it up with pasta dishes and a pork chop entree. I always make sure to go once a month on the Tuesday when they have a stand up comedy night. I'm usually not a big fan of stand up, especially when I'm not familiar with the comedians because I hate when I have to force myself to awkwardly laugh, but I've been three times and they've never disappointed! It doesn't hurt that they have super cheap beer and a $2 vodka special. I'd highly recommend!!

Re: “The Rarebit

My wife and I have been to this place 3 times in the last 6 weeks. The food was really good. The prices for downtown cannot be beat for the amount of food you get. The only problem we have had is with getting the waitress to refill the water glass. In the 3 visits we made they never refilled the glasses. I will continue to visit this restaurant for the food and hope I can get the waitress to step up the level of service.

Re: “Mynt

This club SUCKS! I ended up going to the dive next door Big Guns! First of all, I had to explain my outfit to the stupid ass bouncers who said what I had on was not appropriate. (Deisel brand sneakers, Takeshy Italian jeans, an Armani jacket and a Ralph Lauren pull over, yeah over 400 dollars of apparel.) After my explanation and entering the club, I see everybody in outdated pleated Roundtree & York pants and antebellum Claiborne dress shirts with loafers that had rubber soles!! And that's just the start. I get there and everybody is standing on the floor NOT dancing, and the music was 90s rap remixed. I came there to dance, so I did. When I wanted a drink the dizzy, dyed blonds recognizes everybody but me! (and my friend and I were the only off-colored people there, so noticing us is like noticing a black furred rabbit in snow). I highly defend them for not recognizing me because of my skin tone, just poor service. After we get the drinks, which were decent, a fight breaks out and they let a guy who was blacked out back in the club! After that, I just left to BIG GUNS next door, and ENJOYED the rest of my night there.

I wouldn't go there ever again, even if I purchased JCPenny's brand pants.
