Food itself is great, but after catching serious attitude from the staff multiple times(NOT Cory himself), I decided to stop patronizing this place. One example is ordering food over the phone and the owner, Cory, takes my order, and he tells me that it will be ready no earlier than 30 mins from now because they have to get more of a type of cheese necessary to make that sandwich. When I show up 25 mins later, don't roll your eyes and say "FINALLY" when I arrive, telling me that I am 15 mins late.
They have the best grits.
When I went there months ago, the service was dog slow.
I love Cory's Grilled Cheese! They have the best bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich in town. It's no contest.
Hidden gem of the city. Ultra cool atmosphere, excellent food, first class service and, thankfully, off the beaten path. Best appreciated at night when you approach through the gas lite courtyard, walk through the cozy kitchen, step down into the intimate bar, slip into the adjoining restaurant area or proceed up to the lounge rooms bathed in candlelight. As a Charlestonian, it's my go to place to impress friends, clients and dates. My only hope is that the locals don't find out about this place, which I might have just done with this review.....
Best biscuits and gravy I had, anything from their specials to regular menu it's always good!

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.
tasty, light fare with lots of veggies, nice decor, good service, reasonable prices, easy seating, no tourists.
Wonderful hospitality, fabulous ingredients, exceeds expectations!
I live in the OV and walked past this place a thousand times without even noticing. One day something caught my dog's eye and she wouldn't move. After looking for what she saw, I noticed it: an animatronic display of vegetables singing in a caboose (or something). After that, I always wondered what was up with this interesting place dubbed "The Pickled Palate". It took a while for me to make it over there, since they're primarily open only for lunch - but once I did get in the door, the wait was worth it. Amazing service and the lady's working the place treat every customer like their own family. Sandwiches and salads out of this world and a treasure trove of interesting nick-knacks and lowcountry decorations. One of the best gems of the area, hidden right off Coleman, in my own backyard.
Completely original cafe tucked in a garden near Shem Creek. It's mellow vibe makes it okay to kick back and relax as long as you want with friends, family, wine, and their delicious home made foods. Soups, salads, and panninis and daily specials.
Great light fare. Fabulous wines . Friendly folks that hold many fundraisers for those

While our brunch today at Bluerose was good, if unremarkable, from a culinary perspective, the service was shockingly bad. I met a number of girlfriends who were visiting from out of town. We had two babies and a toddler in our party. While the babies made a typical mess (crumbs on the floor around their highchairs and napkins that had fallen to the floor), it was not extraordinary. Toward the close of our meal, a man came out and handed me a push sweeper and told me to "clean up our mess or pay extra." Dining with children, I always pick up after them (we were still seated with plates on the table at this point), and I typically leave a generous tip for the server to compensate him or her for having to deal with any mess left behind. Here, in a room full of other patrons, my friends and I were left, stunned, to clean the carpet. In perfect fairness, the waiter who served us for the majority of the meal was lovely and as this incident wasn't his fault, I didn't withhold a tip.
I live in the neighborhood, and try to eat out predominately at local restaurants. I'm also typically relatively forgiving of minor glitches or service errors, but I have never felt so unwelcome at a restaurant. I will not be returning, and I plan on sharing my experience with all of my friends, particularly those with children so that they don't suffer the same humiliating experience.
Recently ate at Eclectic Chef... WOW! All I can say is WOW! What a wonderful sandwich. I ordered a sandwich and salad combo - nothing like any combo I've ever eaten. So much food for the money. Everyone was so friendly.. Great food and Awesome service! How can you not go back?
I never take the time to write a review but this is worth saying... Black Bean Co. was THE WORST food experience I have ever had! I have never been so Angry about a restaurant experience! The service was rude, they got my order wrong and the food itself was HORRIBLE. My wrap seemed like it was pre-made and refrigerated over night because it was so tasteless, dry, with no sauce (which there was supposed to be) and barely any guacamole, and my "side" (it was the size of a salad dressing container) of pasta salad was DISGUSTING because it was frozen and clumped together, dry, and completely tasteless. I feel sick to my stomach now, because of the bad food and the fact that I WAY WAY OVER-PAID for this "food". How can this restaurant be on King St. in Charleston?! Ugh, so gross!
Went expecting to highly dislike this place (NOT a vegetarian) and left there in love! I can not get enough of their portabello burger. Their salads are all good - I tried them all at this point. I actually feel good about what I ate when I leave and not my usual "Ugh should not of eaten that". This is a well needed break from my usual dining and I try to go at least twice a week lately. I recommend their brunch to everyone!
Decent bar food. Not good by any means, but not horrible. Service was tolerable. You won't hate going here, but there's really no special reason to go there either.
I live in the near vicinity of Parson Jack's and have tried the restaurant a couple of times. The first time I went there, the service was so so, but having worked in the service industry for years, I know that there are some nights when the staff is just "off." The second time I went there, the service was still pretty lacking. For example, I asked for a glass with my bottled beer and the waitress looked at me like I was crazy for asking for such a thing. I was with friends who knew the waitress, so i didn't make a big stink about it, but deep down I was like, "Really?!"
Also, the times I have been there, the waitresses always try to make excuses as to why the food takes forever to come out. The first excuse was, "We're really backed up tonight, so it's gonna take at least 45 minutes for your food to come out." The ironic part was that there was maybe 6 tables seated in the whole restaurant, so I didn't buy that excuse. The second excuse was, "our entire kitchen staff is new, so it is gonna take about an hour for your food to come out. They're still working out the kinks." You'd think that management would keep a couple of veterans on board to train the newbies, unless the entire kitchen staff walked out the night before. Knowing this place, I wouldn't put it past them.
Basically, the managment of this establishment should take a long, hard look at themselves in the mirror because what they're doing now isn't working. I really want to like this place since I live nearby and I really think that it has some potential, but the management needs to change in order for me to return.
P.S. - I really hope that Parson Jack's management reads this post and does something to save their restaurant.
I really like the spot. They have great food and a terrific atmosphere.
