Re: “King Street Grille

I have never writen a review on establishment before, but I feel I have to after this past Sunday. So you call yourself a sports bar and your not prepared for a NATIONAL sporting event like the Woman's World Cup!!!!! I could not understand why you would not have enough wait staff on hand for an event such as this so that my friends and I, that are sitting at a table, did not have to order two beers at a time or even go to the bar and order a drink due to your wait staff being slow and under staffed. What's sad is that a few of my friends that I was sitting with kept stating that this is "typical JI King Street Grille" Also folks in my party had to litterally leave the table and look for our server to get our check once the game was over. Truly have some major concerns for this King Street Grill and its patrons come this upcoming football season. TV's great, food good, beer good if its not the second of the two you had to order at the same time thats a little warm now, and service well...... SUCKS!!!!!

Re: “Early Bird Diner

Honestly, everything they have is great, the only problem is deciding what to get. Save room for dessert, the pound cake with any of their homemade ice creams on top are a can't miss.

Re: “Marina Variety Store

Springs, you ever think that you have so many bad experiences because you're an evil wench? Being rude to your server is a great way to ensure your food takes forever. If you ever sat at my table, I'd make sure everyone else got their food before you. The tip from your one table doesn't affect my day much anyway.

Re: “Long Point Grill

Recently my brother and his girlfriend wanted to go to Charleston with me and my girlfriend for a visit. They are flight nurses in the US Air Force who fly in and out of war zones everyday rescuing wounded soldiers and just wanted to go to Charleston for a good meal while they were home on leave. Long Point Grill came Highly recommended from some family and friends so we figured we'd give it a shot. First we ordered the mussels as appetizers, which were really good. My brother ordered the wahoo, I ordered the New York Strip, and my brothers girlfriend ordered the fillet. When my food came out my steak was cold as were my sides of broccoli and collard greens. My brothers fish was so dry and overcooked that he had to cut it with a knife! My brothers girlfriends fillet was also cold. Im not one of these people who likes to cause a hassle or send food back, but when you are paying that kind of money for food, you expect it to be at least cooked right or at least warm! We had to flag the waitress down, as she never once came and asked us how our meal was or refilled any of our drinks.She took our food back to the manager and chefs who then all began to glare over at us like we did something wrong. The manager, who seemed to be more concerned with checking out every woman in the restaurant, came over to the table with a smug look on his face. Very uncaring he looks at my brother and says,"Look man, whata ya want me to do? I mean if you want another fish I'll cook you the salmon instead and charge you the same price(saving a whole dollar) as the wahoo." My brother agreed and said he would just take the salmon. Meanwhile they took my plate and threw it in the microwave to reheat it, so my steak came back as well done instead of the medium rare I had ordered. It was so bland that I had to cover it in hot sauce so that I could even eat it. When my brothers salmon finally came out, everyone else was already finished eating and he had lost his appetite. We were just aggravated and ready to leave at this point. We kinda figured with it being a nicer restaurant that the manager would at least knock a little off of my brothers ticket, especially since we had had such a bad dining experience. When my brother tried to mention this to the manager and voice his feelings on the matter, the manager stood there with a smirk on his face and told us that 95% of his customers were repeat customers and that he didnt feel we deserved a discount on the meal! Basically he was telling us that he had so many repeat customers that he didnt care whether or not we were happy with ours. What a great way to treat our military. I can understand a restaurant having a bad night as far as the food goes, but we were treated with absolutely no respect and that is just not tolerable.

Re: “Wild Wing - Mt. Pleasant

NOT SMOKE FREE!
Another Mount P bar that has an open roll up door between the "outside" smoking area and the supposed inside non-smoking area.
Bad enough that they have slowly but surely been enclosing the outside area, but the addicts stand in that roll up door and blow their poison in at you.
If you wish to avoid second hand smoke, avoid Wild Wing Mount P.
I know I will.

Re: “King Street Grille

Love the food but the service was terrible. It took 30 minutes for the waitress to take our order and another 30 for the food to come. Once we were done with our meal we waited 45 minutes for the check to come (which we had to track down the waitress to get). My wife and I plus another couple were there over 2 hours for dinner. We didn't mind so much because we were talking but service was TERRIBLE. We will not return.

Re: “Marina Variety Store

I stumbled upon these reviews while looking for a place to eat breakfast. I am AMAZED that someone (Springs) has the time, and clearly so few other interests, to write such a novel about ranch dressing. REALLY? You would be such an asset to our world if you could channel that passion for something that actual matters.
PS...regardless of your experience, how is the servers married life relevant in any way?

Re: “King Street Grille

King Street Grill (Folly Road) is great!! The food is delicious! The burgers are tasty and cooked to temp and paired with lightly salted & peppered fries. The appetizer chx tenderloins are gigantic and lightly breaded but still give a crispy crunchy and are never overdone. The "make your own salad" can't be beat!

The bartenders are some of the fastest and friendliest in Charleston: Hands Down.

If you're looking for an unpretentious spot, with great service, great food, plenty of room and plenty of TVs, this is the spot on James Island to be.

Re: “Buffalo Wild Wings

The wings are small but have excellent variety of flavors which are all fantastic. If you go during a football or basketball game make sure you have earplugs. The TVs are cranked to maximum volume and everybody yells to be louder than the TV.

Re: “Vickery's Bar and Grill

Thank you Vickery's! I am a local and dine at Vick's often, but this was my first time with a large group. I organize monthly dinners for a women's group. Our outing at Vickery's was one of our tastiest and most fun. We aren't the easiest group to deal with...we range in age from early twenties to mid eighties, a couple of women use walkers/wheelchairs, and most of us are downright picky eaters. But the entire staff at Vickery's took fabulous care of us. The kind British hostess helped our handicapped women into and out of the elevator and to our tables. She seated us in a corner section, which enabled us to get up and move around to chat with each other without annoying other diners. Our waiter, Chris, treated us like princesses! He made notes of our "salmon well done;" "no bacon/no cheese;" "don't add any salt;" "everything on the side;" "pink in the middle, but not red;" "no onions on the soup:" etc special requests without rolling his eyes one time. Our food was served promptly and each woman's special requests were met. All the food was delicious, as it always is at Vickery's. Everyone was happy with their meal. The manager was so friendly--he came by our table and spoke with us for several minutes, making sure everything was fine. Chris didn't even flinch when we asked for individual checks...and did I mention there were 23 of us? Vickery's is definitely on our group's repeat list for our monthly get-togethers. You can't beat it for price, quality, service and atmosphere. Thank you Vickery's!

Re: “Buffalo Wild Wings

Tastes just like you expect wings from a bar to taste. Usually takes a while to get your food,and I mean, A WHILLEEE! But, if your used to the usual wing bar, with mediocre food, then you will enjoy it.

Re: “Vickery's Bar and Grill

Preface by saying that we are locals and have enjoyed the views and above average bar food many times. Tonite we were "greeted" at the door by a middle aged irish hostess who demanded that each member of our party be present before we be seated. Granted our party included a seven week old baby (easter baptism party), two six year olds, and four grandparents over 80 who happened to be taking their time making the trek from the inadequate parking area and up the wooden stairs. The hostess went on to inform me that her job was not to "sell to me" and that it was not her problem that i was unhappy because I was "not getting what I wanted". She stated that she would be fine with us "moving on to another establishment"- which we did. I pray that ownership steps up and corrects the issues with this once upon a time shem creek landmark. until that happens, I will be fine with a little less quality food but 180% friendly service at Red's . UNBELIEVABLY BAD TONITE AND COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE, Get it together Vick!

Re: “California Dreaming

We have always loved California Dreaming for both the food and the atmosphere. Definitely a great place to go to get a great view of the peninsula! Excellent chicken fingers and salads.

Re: “Montreux Bar and Grill

I had a comment on here about how I was harassed by the staff. My buddy walked out on his thirteen dollar tab (which was a misunderstanding, and he went back and paid the next day). I was kept there by the waitress and bouncer and was threatened to had the police called on me for someone else tab. This comment some how was erased from the comment area. What kind of shady web site is this.

Re: “Mama Q's Kitchen

Really good fully loaded burgers. Great shoestring fries. Terrific veggie burrito. Neat neighborhood joint. Big promoters of the Lowcountry High Rollers.

Re: “Coleman Public House

Very friendly and knowledgeable bartender Amber (she's pretty too).
I had a visitor from Bavaria (THE beer country) and both of us enjoyed the locally brewed Westbrook wheat beer and the delicious food. Definitely not the last time I was there!
