Re: “Five Loaves Cafe

Went to the Summerville location tonight and everything was very good. Attentive staff and everyone enjoyed the food. Will go back for sure!

Re: “Five Loaves Cafe

Don't let the busy nature of the place discourage you. Five Loaves has too good of a sandwich at too reasonable a price point to have it ruined by a bunch of tourist mouthbreathers and indecisive college kids blocking up the sidewalk and entrance. Shoo them away from the door like flies if you must, or glare at them in a threatening way. If push comes to shove, initiate a fist fight with the self-righteous guy from Maryland who doesn't understand why anyone would ever tell his busted wife to allow others to enter the restaurant. Whatever it takes to mark your territory. Or so I've heard.

Anyway, that's how good Five Loaves' sandwiches/salads/soups are. Don't take shit from non-locals and this place will be your bitch in no time.

I recommend the Pork Loin sandwich (formerly known as The Parker), the arugula salad with goat cheese/candied walnuts and the Ultimate BLT on croissant. Get everything on croissant. Can't go wrong with any of them.

Re: “Cory's Grilled Cheese

Nutella, PB and Marshmallow or grilled PBJ....simply the greatest. Don't care how long it takes, I will wait for my fix. Also, I never catch attitude from anyone here.
Corys=good.

Re: “Cory's Grilled Cheese

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.

Re: “Cory's Grilled Cheese

I love Cory's Grilled Cheese! They have the best bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich in town. It's no contest.

Re: “Zero George Cafe + Bar

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.....

Re: “Zero George Cafe + Bar

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.

Re: “The Pickled Palate

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.

Re: “The Pickled Palate

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.

Re: “Bluerose Café

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.

Re: “Eclectic Chef

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?

Re: “Black Bean Co.

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!
