So glad to see it listed in City Paper! It's kind of new in Charleston, and my family and I love it. We go all the time to Sweet CeCe's, and have never been disappointed. Great flavors, amazing atmosphere, and its just a fun place to be. It's next to Bubba Gumps sort of. The Charleston flavors are great by the way - French Quarter Praline is totally addictive.
My wife and I have been to this place 3 times in the last 6 weeks. The food was really good. The prices for downtown cannot be beat for the amount of food you get. The only problem we have had is with getting the waitress to refill the water glass. In the 3 visits we made they never refilled the glasses. I will continue to visit this restaurant for the food and hope I can get the waitress to step up the level of service.
Zoe, aren't you the same idiot who complained they did not appreciate your dog at the Tattooed Moose? Why do you bring your pet to restaurants that are meant for humans? Can't get a date? Leave your mutt at home, try and enjoy a nice place to eat in Charleston, and stop boring us with your stupid comments that have nothing to do with the food or wait service at these places. If you are not the same stupid bitch that complained about Tattoed Moose, I apologize. You are a standout idiot.
I love going through the drive-thru at BBC, but the service inside the restaurant has been awful on the 3 occasions I've eaten there. I don't mind laid-back service, but in one visit, my waitress forgot multiple drinks, didn't put my order in at the same time as my dining companions', and wasn't at all apologetic. In an attempt to rush my food out, the kitchen delivered my "sautéed" fish almost entirely raw. To be fair, they did comp my meal - but I don't think I'll risk eating in, again.
I tried the Macintosh during Restaurant Week 2013 and thought everything was really well done. The Orange Ghost and Honey Badger cocktails were inventive without being precious, and the server was professional and enthusiastic. The portion sizes were surprisingly large for a 3/$30 menu. I had a beautiful carrot salad and the seasonal vegetable plate, which was even better the next day.
I really adore the food at this place; it's comforting and unpretentious but there's enough imagination in it to keep things interesting. It's true that the service isn't especially smooth, but it's never detracted from my experiences and the waitstaff is always, at least, pleasant. The vegetable stew is one of my favorite things to eat in Charleston.
Out of the ballpark! Sweet CeCe's is nothing like the other frozen yogurt places we've been to in Charleston. It's fro-yo on steroids! Staff was well trained, the place was spotless, the selection was huge, and the flavors were unbelievable. It tasted like rich ice cream; but, they said it was gluten free, and non-fat. We're definitely going back - loved it!!! VERY CHARLESTON!
My new favorite, recently discovered, take out spot! I order out and get the basil rolls, green papaya salad, and chicken curry - all are great! They have a nice dining room and one day I'll make plans to dine in.
This club SUCKS! I ended up going to the dive next door Big Guns! First of all, I had to explain my outfit to the stupid ass bouncers who said what I had on was not appropriate. (Deisel brand sneakers, Takeshy Italian jeans, an Armani jacket and a Ralph Lauren pull over, yeah over 400 dollars of apparel.) After my explanation and entering the club, I see everybody in outdated pleated Roundtree & York pants and antebellum Claiborne dress shirts with loafers that had rubber soles!! And that's just the start. I get there and everybody is standing on the floor NOT dancing, and the music was 90s rap remixed. I came there to dance, so I did. When I wanted a drink the dizzy, dyed blonds recognizes everybody but me! (and my friend and I were the only off-colored people there, so noticing us is like noticing a black furred rabbit in snow). I highly defend them for not recognizing me because of my skin tone, just poor service. After we get the drinks, which were decent, a fight breaks out and they let a guy who was blacked out back in the club! After that, I just left to BIG GUNS next door, and ENJOYED the rest of my night there.
I wouldn't go there ever again, even if I purchased JCPenny's brand pants.
It would appear all of these reviews were written awhile ago right within the first few months of opening. I have to say Hom is now my favorite burger place in town. Not only that, it is now rocking the best brunch in Charleston. The burgers may seem smaller than average but they are packed with great ingredients that are rich in flavor and super filling. For those who shy away from beef, they offer a whole range of veggie options and an skewer of mini chicken sammies. They have the best shoestring fries and their smoked onion remoulade is orgasmic.
Their brunch includes burger benedicts and duck hash but by far the best dish is their Fried Chicken BLT. Served on Texas toast with fried chicken thigh, its the most delicious chicken sandwich in town.
Just a sad little hole in the wall... fighting is allowed even if its man on woman. Strip-mall hick bar. Zero rules.
It's sad that one bartender ruins moe's for me... The young one with light brown hair? So rude. She handed me a pbr without me ever ordering one and was so mean around 1 30... Of course I want to be out by last call but you don't need to be so rude about it. Terrible, I never want to go back. Too bad!
My favorite burger place in town! Go for the "Spicy Southerner" YUM
I have celiac disease and I still eat here occasionally. That should tell you something.
My husband and I were disappointed when we went to Stars for restaurant week. The rooftop bar charges for ice which is absurd, the hostess was rude, and the computer system went out during our meal which the server really didn't seem to care that all of his section was waiting for tabs to pay. Not even an apology or an offer of a glass of wine while we wait. The folks next to us were waiting when we got seated and were still waiting along with us. A very cold reception at best.
Let me start by saying I am rather disgusted by the fact that someone has enough hatred for EVO to "dislike" any positive review or comment on here. Really? What did this restaurant do to you? I won't let that affect my review of what I consider the best pizza in Charleston.
Why is this the best pizza in Charleston? Why does my opinion count? Actually, pizza taste is more subjective than any other food out there. It seems that some people think the best pizza comes from NY. Other people only like the thick Chicago style deep dish pies. I can appreciate all styles of pizza, and I used to make them as a part time job as a teenager. However, my true pizza purist side really appeared while living in Italy for 3 months (and during multiple return trips). While I lived in a little suburb of Torino called Venaria Realle, I learned that most popular pizza in Italy was Pizza Napoletana, which originated from Naples. This style had thin crust with light toppings, and was cooked in a wood fired oven. The wood fire always added a wonderful touch of smoke to the crust, while providing a high heat level to crisp things up. When you ordered a Pizza Margherita, you would get an 8" pie with a light covering of sauce, frest cut tomatoes, house made mozzarella cheese (I preferred to opt for Mozzarella di Buffalo), and just the lightest touch of seasoning from a couple basil leaves. This was pizza perfection to me. I tried this pizza from many places during my stays, and it was always delicious.
Now that I live in Charleston, I often miss this Napoletano pizza experience. Then, I discovered EVO. Extra Virgin Oven (EVO) takes pride in producing the most accurate representation of true Italian pizza you will find in this part of the country. They offer the same fresh ingredients and even feature a true wood fired pizza oven. The crust is always cooked to a perfect crisp level, and they even seem to have the dough chemistry worked out to match EU. To add some American spice to the traditional dish, they offer something called a Pork Trifecta. Sweet Jeebus, the Trifecta is delicious. I am still an American, and I love bacon. The PT gives you the bacon fix you needed, along with some house made sausage and pepperoni. I think the combination of tradition with an American pork lover's wet dream make this the best pie in CHS.
Aside from the orgasmic talk about the pizza, EVO also delivers on beer selection and service. I have never had an issue with the waitresses, as they are quick to take orders and deliver food. The craft beer selection had slacked off for a while, but seems back to normal. I also have enjoyed the breads I have tried from their bakery.
While there may be many NY pizza purists on Citypaper, if you love fresh ingredients, you really need to try EVO for yourself. I don't expect it to be #1 on everyone's list, but I would hope the flavor might convince you that these guys know what they are doing. All this pizza talk is making me hungry! Cheers!
Wow, wow, wow! I was initially intimidated by the set up of the Grocery's menu, but a friend had been raving about it, so we broke down and went for restaurant week. So glad we did! After reviewing the menu options, we opted to order off the regular menu. The clam appetizer with merguez sausage is an excellent combination of flavors. The bacon wrapped duck breast combined two of my favorite things flawlessly, without seeming fatty. My only complaint is that there wasn't more butternut squash! For dessert, the Banana Pudding Parfait was a perfectly elevated rendition of a southern classic. The Churros, which the server mentioned was the signature dessert, were awesome, and big enough to share. Not only was the food outstanding, but the service was impeccable. We will definitely be back!
I wouldn't waste your Restaurant week meal here. The carpaccio and tuna were pretty flavorless, the pasta and short rib entrees were pretty good, but nothing to lure me back there. The dessert that they brought was awful. It was a chocolate covered strawberry (that didn't even taste very good), a few berries soaked in liqueur, and the tiniest apple dumpling I had ever seen. I mean.. couldn't you do a Cannoli or something? All I could think about on the way home was that pint of Ben & Jerry's waiting for me in the fridge. They lured me with their deliciously described menu, but when it came down to it, the execution fell short.
I used to love Groucho's but I just went through the drive thru and ordered a white moose with extra sauce (which I didn't get)and a sweet tea. This cost me $10. The whole way home, all I could think about was that I feel ripped off. I can get a gourmet sandwich at Ted's Butcher block for the same price.. with Mac & Cheese!
Wow! On Saturday night we had one of the best meals we've ever had in Charleston at Al Di La.
