Re: “Bushido

I've eaten at Bushido many times and enjoyed it- i wouldn't say it's anything outstanding but I live quite close and appreciate knowing I can rely on them for consistently good sushi if I get a craving or can't bring myself to cook dinner after work!
For the city paper folks: the link info provided with this write up is incorrect. I just located their actual site, bushidojapaneserestaurant.com.

Re: “The Mustard Seed

I totally understand scmama's comment(Bless her little heart!). Sweetie, if you're used to going to Huddle House, you probably won't like this food, and you should probably stay as far away from Shem Creek and Downtown as possible.

Re: “The Mustard Seed

Try the sesame chicken salad with honey mustard dressing. Its fantastic. Anyone comparing the seed to huddle has has zero credibility. If something isn't right at the seed you send it back and they fix it. Their motto is "we kiss your ass". Fantastic food and great people. If you don't speak up you can blame yourself.

Re: “Luckhaus & Brubaker Sweets & Treats

I have visited this wonderful bakery a few times since it opened, and have nothing but wonderful things to say about it! They have a great variety of sweet treats, at reasonable prices compared to other bakeries in the area. The staff there is warm, friendly, and welcoming, and they appear to be working very hard to create a great bakery on James Island, which has been lacking one. I really hope their business does well. If you have a sweet tooth, check them out. You won't be disappointed!

Re: “Brasserie Gigi

Warm inviting and DELICIOUS! Could sit at the bar all day long on a rainy day soaking up the atmosphere, dining on incredible food and a great bottle of wine.

Re: “The Mustard Seed

So disappointed in our meal tonight. Veggies way over salted. Fish over cooked. Crab cakes mostly filler, very little crab. Have had better meals at Huddle House. Easily worst restaurant east of Pacific. Hipster waiter only told us about specials he liked, said others "weren't good." Avoid Mt. Pleasant location.

Re: “Halls Chophouse

I was in the business for over 30 years, managing and owning restaurants. I can not figure out how this family keeps the place packed! Service is rough, food is mediocre in regards to the prices charged.

I live in Charleston, I went there for Gospel Sunday Brunch with a group of friends and I love it! I plan to go back for the Sunday Brunch. I'd Shake Billy Hall's hand anytime.

Re: “Georgean's Caribbean Soul

I finally made it to Georgean's without the sweltering weather hindering my appetite. The hosts are great and make you feel like long lost patrons. I was, for the most part, very pleased with my jerk chicken, cauliflower mash, and mac & cheese. I was hoping that the jerk had more Caribbean heat and spice, but the chicken was very, very, tender. My portion of mac & cheese was a little on the slim side but since it was late afternoon they may have been running low. Maybe I should ask to bump up the heat/spice on my next visit. All in all, go and support this tiny gem with the hopes that they can move to bigger digs equipped with air conditioning and tables.

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: “Bambu

Most locals vowed never to return to "Bambuzeled" the day of their grand opening...others must be masochist who enjoy the pain and suffering because somehow the place is still open for business.

Re: “Bambu

Worst food experience I have ever had at this restaurant. It all started out with a simple misunderstanding about the menu. It all finished with me vowing to never go back again.

Re: “Bambu

This was the worst restaurant I have ever eaten at. I have never had a worse dining experience in my life. First, the waitress tried to upsell everything to us, and kept pushing us to order more, it was very uncomfortable. Secondly, they failed to tell us that rolls were half price because it was happy hour. We had no idea, and our friend came in randomly, and told us about the deal we were missing out on. We felt pretty cheated, they deliberately hid the deal from us, because they wanted to charge us full price. Two rolls were $24 which is a total rip off. Then, my wife asked to cancel one of her rolls as she had ordered too much, they would not allow her to cancel it, they said it was already made, when it was right after she ordered. It was really crazy. Lastly, when we came to pay, I used a $20 groupon I had purchased plus cash, it was 100% valid and purchased recently, they refused to take it saying it was only good at certain times of day?? It was completely ridiculous! I have never had a worse experience at any restaurant, in my life!

Do not eat here, they are crooks and it is a terrible atmosphere. I cannot stress this enough, don't waste your money here. They were really sneaky about the half off. When we asked our waitress about the half off deal she got very offended and told us that you had to sit in a certain section of the restaurant to get the deal. This was after we had gotten the huge bill. It was absolutely unbelievable.

Stay away from this place at all costs.

Re: “Edmund's Oast

We ordered both charcuterie plates, and they were both solid. The beer selection is solid too. I went in June, so maybe it was the timing, but the crowd seemed very touristy, middle-aged, and well-heeled. I'm 40 and I was younger than most people there. Maybe my preconception of beer gardens as unpretentious, neighborhood places skewed my feeling, but I really did not feel very relaxed there. I couldn't imagine hanging out with my friends and just having a good time. And some of the beers were a dollar or so more expensive than I've seen them other places (like the Oak Barrel Tavern).

Another reviewer mentioned feeling ripped off on Upper King St. I know how he/she feels, since I've had that experience too. I wouldn't say I felt ripped off at Edmund's Oast; it just felt like I was being sold an up-scale brand that I didn't need or really want to pay for.

I do think I have to read more reviews before I check out new places. Unfortunately, a lot of them seemed aimed more at tourists with money to blow rather than locals just interested in a good meal and drinks.

Re: “Halls Chophouse

LMAO @ this Folly Beach crowd making up lies about Hall's.

The FACT is they have great food and great service.

Stay off the peninsula if you are going to be jealous and bitter over those doing well.

Re: “Edmund's Oast

I've been there several times. Speaking focused on the food, beverage, decor and service while ignoring the prices, I had a great experience each time. Staff is knowledgeable and helpful. But my one reservation is the price point. The small plates have almost always been tasty, but $11-$14 for really small plates, or $12 for the same beer that other establishments of good quality charge $6-$8, that does annoy me. I know EO doesn't need my business, but I would go more often if prices were tuned down a bit for middle class folks.
