Re: “Madra Rua

Amazing place.

Great staff, good food, good drinks. Music is not too loud, tv spacing good too. Wifi seems to be hit or miss though, depending where you're sitting. My boyfriend and I LOVE coming here. Shoutout to Jake!

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: “Vickery's Bar and Grill

I had the occasion to visit the area for the first time today. I asked around about a good place to eat lunch near the water and was told about Vickery's. But I'm sorry to say that I was not thrilled. First of all, the hostess never said a word when I walked in. She just gave me a weird look. I had to do the speaking. That should be a huge no-no. Part of her job should be greeting customers with a smile. She, honestly, was pretty unfriendly. I chose lemonade for a beverage and it was okay but tasted flat. The slaw I had was unedible. It was bitter and tasted terrible. I'm not sure if it was bad or not but I wasn't going to take a chance. I chose the fried shrimp and they were good but I was surprised at how tiny they were. The fries were lukewarm and wimpy. All in all, I spent $23 for a lunch that, in my opinion, was of far less quality than Red Lobster. I was pretty disappointed.

Re: “Ocean Cowboys

You must have went on a bad night. The service is normally great and the staff are very hospitable. They have awesome rock n roll bands during the week.

Re: “Olympik Restaurant and Bakery

We got take-out from there last week. Food was very good, with generous portions, and the gentleman there (the owner?) couldn't have been nicer. We'll definitely go back!

Re: “Bushido

I went a few times when they first opened. The service was terribly slow. The food was hit and miss.

As has been stated by others, these guys do not know how to make sushi rice, for some reason. It is wet and soggy. The flavor is not correct for sushi rice.

The last straw was when I went to get some takeout. I bought quite a bit because I like to snack on it all night. When I got home and took it out, the tuna had thick white stripes. This is not fat, it is connective tissue or gristle from a part of the steak that you should never use to make nigiri sushi with. I tried one piece, and had to spit it out. It was like eating a rubber band. I could not force myself to swallow it.

I drove straight back there, and told them I wanted my money back (which they did without argument). When I got back in the car to go home, I noticed it smelled like someone had farted in there. That's how bad the fish was.

I will never go back.

Re: “JB's Smokeshack

Not bad but nothing special. I remember once when they tried to charge me a dollar for a Styrofoam cup of water. Smoaky Oak on JI is better IMO.

Re: “The Granary

This place is the jam. I can't say enough nice things about it. My husband and I go at least a couple times a month- their food is always delicious. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable about their dishes. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. The happy hour specials are the bomb. I love The Granary! You will not be disappointed with this restaurant.

Re: “Coconut Joe's Beach Grill & Bar

Hello every body my name is Cynthia Morgan, am from United Kingdom England, I just want to share my experience with the world on how Dr iayaryi, help me, I got my love back and saved my marriage… I was married for 3 years with 1kid and we lived happily until things started getting ugly and we had fights and argued almost every time… it got worse at a point that he filed for divorce… I tried my best to make him change his mind & stay with me because I love him so much and don’t want to lose him but everything just didn't work out… he moved out of the house because it was a rented apartment and still went ahead to file for divorce… I pleaded and tried everything but still nothing worked. The breakthrough came when someone introduced me to this wonderful, great spell caster who eventually helped me out… I have never been a fan of things like this but just decided to try reluctantly because I was desperate and left with no choice… He did special prayers and used his power… Within 4 days my husband called me and he said he was sorry for all the emotional pains he had cost me, moved back to the house and we continue to live happily and our kid is happy too and we are expecting our second child… I have introduced him to a lot of couples with problems across the world and they have had good news… Just thought I should share my experience because I strongly believe someone out there need’s it… You can email him through his email.(driayaryi2012@hotmail.com)

Re: “JB's Smokeshack

Jb's is really good, you just need to go before the buffet gets destroyed. Their meat is really smokey, i don't see how the last guy thought it wasn't unless his last name is Dukes

Re: “JB's Smokeshack

Really disappointing. The good reviews were the reason I decided to go there. I guess I should have known better as soon as I saw the buffet setup. There are about a thousand bottles of their sauce in there, so it seems like they are trying to sell sauce rather than good food.

I picked up a pound of Pulled Pork (I like BBQ sandwiches) and a large Mac and Cheese to bring home and share with my friends. The meat was sort of soggy, and had clearly been reheated. There was no flavor to it. There was no bark or crust. I could not detect any smoke flavor. Contrary to their slogan, the only way to get any taste from this was to sauce it up. Their sweet sauce was really good.

The Mac and Cheese was the worst I have ever attempted to eat. I mean really bad. I appeared to have been made many days prior. One of those microwavable cups of Kraft would have been a far better choice. I threw most of it away.

Hard to believe how difficult it is to find good BBQ in Charleston. Don't get me started on Home Boy Team Robbery BBQ - They suck too.

Re: “Zero Restaurant + 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.....
