Re: “Jestine's Kitchen

Just came home from Charleston, SC and had to make sure I left a comment! This is the BEST place if your looking for some good ole soul food!! I had the fried flounder, mac & cheese, fried okra & coca cola chocolate cake and it was FABULOUS!!! Also tasted the collard greens & corn bread, oh it was delicious too!! Very reasonable cost and the best service!!! Yes, the wait is well worth it!! Can't wait to go back, makes my mouth water just thinking about it!! Wish I could have tasted everything!!

Re: “Page's Okra Grill

We recently tried Okra Grill after some of our local friends recommended it. Everything we had was awesome and it will be our new favorite. Even my picky 10 year old cleared her plate and tried eating off of ours so that in itself is a miracle! I am thankful that Tommy Condon's, one of our other favs had a B on the door over St. Patrick's Day weekend because it led us to this new favorite.

Re: “Page's Okra Grill

Claire: It is packed because most folks think the food is good. Did you have a bad experience? Did you go back? Try it again, and maybe your opinion will change. A full house usually relates to something good. And don't go when you are "high". Kinda lets folks know your personal problems.

Re: “Page's Okra Grill

I am so confused by these reviews... Local food? You mean pancakes and fried chicken? This place is GROSS and for some reason always packed and therefore incredibly slow. I could see it being awesome if I was completely high or it was 3am or something. But then I'd rather have Waffle House's fresh local waffle or hashbrowns.

Re: “Page's Okra Grill

Page's is hands down the best restaurant in Mount Pleasant. Food is excellent, staff friendly and accommodating and prices very reasonable. We eat there three or four times a week and have never been disappointed. I cannot understand the negative post above unless it was written by a disgruntled employee who just couldn't measure up.

Re: “Virginia's on King

Our slider appetizers were very good. Our entrees were slightly overpriced and hugely underseasoned. The wait service was annoyingly mediocre. We're not food snobs, but geez, this place has ZERO personality.

Re: “Jestine's Kitchen

In Dec. I was in S. C. and by accident I found "JESTINE"s. There was a parking space on the side of the restaurant but the sign said, "no parking 2 - 7 p m". It was after 7 so I parked there. I asked inside if they thought it was O K if I parked there. The Manager said, "Will, you may or may not get a ticked". So I went to move my car and the Manager came out with me. He asked if I saw the white truck parked down the street, I said, "yes", he told me to take that spot as soon as the truck moved. I asked how he knew it was going to move. He said, "I have the keys in my hand". What a graceious thing to do if we all could just be nicer to others it would be a better world. Now that's Southern Hospitality and he is a real Southern Gentleman. Thank you for that unusual experience. Jestine's is a fun place to be and the food is good also. Thank you!

Re: “Southerly Restaurant & Patio

We went to The Southerly early one week day evening to avoid witnessing a kitchen under pressure. We ordered several signature dishes [ according to the waitperson ]. The ambience, furnishings, and waitpersons' uniforms speak upscale. The general presentation seems to convey southern cooking with proprietary treatments. Our order included 2 Budweisers. We also ordered Butternut Squash Soup, BBQ Chips, Roasted Beets, Fresh Fish Catch of The Day, Pork & Beans, and Buttermilk Fritters. The service pace was moderate -- not prompt. The dishes served were between warm and hot. Quality was good, though not remarkable. What struck us was Okra Grill up the street can generate soup and entree equally as good -- without the upscale ambience -- for 1/3rd the price. Our evening cost $103.19 for 2 with tax and 20% tip. If folks want this nature of food there are better places like Vickery's which will cost 70% the price. OR, go to Langdon's where the food is much better, the ambience is slightly nicer, and the prices are comparable. The Southerly is a nice old ladies tea room with ramped up prices. Not recommended.

Re: “Jestine's Kitchen

This restaurant closed temporarily and has now re-opened. My wife & I went there many times before it closed and always enjoyed it. We have not been back since re-opening so can't comment on how it is now.

Re: “Ike & Alice's

Chicken fried when you order it, fantastic sides, and syrupy sweet tea - what's not to like?

Re: “Lucky's Southern Grill

I am a fan of good food and friends have told me I ought to try your appetizers 'cause they are really good although I am not much of a big eater. Now, when it comes to really good musicians 'in my opinion', I'll frequent an establishment just for that reason. Jeff Bateman is one guitarist I have had the pleasure of listening to and he's worth the trip. Not sure who he has if anyone accompanying him, But will give it my best to come out this Wednesday 4/25/2012.

Re: “Lucky's Southern Grill

The restaurant looks really good as a remake of the old Applebees. I love that it is locally owned and the menu sounds delicious. We got the fried pickled okra and it was good. The shrimp and grits however was drowning in the gravy. It was more like a soup or stew than shrimp and grits. The flavor was yummy but it was so soupy! I will probably give this place another shot but I won't be ordering the shrimp and grits.

Re: “Lucky's Southern Grill

We ate there recently because some friends who live on James Island recommended it. We started with the black eyed pea fritters with ham hocks and we both found them mysteriously tasteless. The minuscule flecks of ham hock by themselves had flavor, and the black eyed peas by themselves did as well. But the whole thing together got lost in whatever they used to bind it all together. The salad they were served with was odd, both in concept and execution. Who eats a fritter nearly the size of a pool ball with a salad? The salad was diced cucumber, tomato and bell pepper that reminded me of pico de gallo, served with some mixed greens. It was dressed with red wine vinegar and nothing else. Both the fritters and the salad were screaming for salt and pepper.

For an entree I ordered the grilled pork chop special, which came with flash fried Brussels sprouts and griddled potato cakes. The best thing on the plate were the Brussels sprouts. They were caramelized and delicious and absolutely perfect. I appreciate it when people don't cook pork to death and pink in the center is perfectly fine. Mine was borderline raw in the center. It had been cooked over very high heat and there were some charred bits on the outside that tasted strongly of gas. The griddled potato cakes were just weird. It seemed like they took mashed potatoes and just put them on the griddle. They were lightly browned but had no texture. They were also very salty.

My partner got the fried chicken. The chicken was lukewarm and the breading was soft and not the least bit crispy. It also had a weird flavor, like they had cooked a lot of shrimp or something else in the same oil. Maybe it was the Brussels sprouts? The onion gravy was nice and had a flavor that reminded me of Thanksgiving.

It was okay overall, but fell into a middle ground where I'll probably not ever think of going back.

Re: “Lucky's Southern Grill

I'm no fan of bbq sauce and asked that it be withheld from the fried oysters that top the baked on the half shell pimento oysters. WOW-what a terrific starter.

As an early bird diner I often suspect prepared food from the afternoon lunch hour is the first out of the kitchen at supper time. That may not be the case at Lucky's. However, my order of fried chicken was served at room temperature and the skin was soggy. A second attempt by the kitchen produced piping hot crispy skinned pieces of rather bland chicken. Either way, I can't recommend this entree. The accompanying mashed potatoes with yummy onion gravy and the collards were both delicious.

Excellent service is worthy of a star but only if the food measures up. Maybe I'll go back and try a different entree but I doubt it.

Personally I have a three-tiered rating plan: 1) I'd go back 2) eh 3) awful. Lucky rates as an "eh".

Re: “Lucky's Southern Grill

I have eaten at Lucky's several times, and have left there every time, full and happy!! The food is delicious, the servings are "large", and the waitstaff is very friendly and helpful, and always there when you need them!! Plus the owner, John Davis. makes his rounds thru the room quite often checking on everyone. Lucky's is definately a hit!! Its my favorite place for Sunday brunch!!! Great job, John!!!!!

Re: “Biggie's Southern Gastropub

Tried the Monday night meatloaf and the gin and house made tonic. It was all good!
Can't wait to go back to my local neighborhood " gastropub".
