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!
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.
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.
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".
Definitely my pick for a restaurant serving local ingredients and Lowcountry food. The servers aren't always the most friendly, but you get a lot for your money.
I've always been a fan of Page's. Good southern cooking at a reasonable price. I've only had minor problems with the service, but it had more to do with staffing than anything else (1 server for 10 or so parties is a tad unreasonable in my opinion). The food is excellent, and I really loved their German nights a couple of months ago. It's just high quality local stuff, and they do run out of the good stuff quick, so you are best advised to come early. I hate the parking lot (there are more ruts and holes leading up to it than I could ever imagine), but the location is convenient in Mount Pleasant and generally there isn't a line to get in the place.
We had dinner here and were pleased with the flavors. I had the tomato soup and grilled cheese. The soup was a bit spicy for my taste buds, but good consistency. My husband had the pork sliders and said they were spicy too. The atmosphere was quaint.
When I first viewed this diner from the outside I was a little reluctant to go in. My wife and I said let's give it a try. Boy were we surprised. The food was nothing short of excellent, the wait staff was great and so was the service. In fact I asked our waitress who the owner was and as it happened he was sitting in the booth behind us. As we left I stopped by and let him know what a great place this was.
This is one of those cozy places that the locals love. Great diner-type atmosphere, with some seriously good southern comfort food. The fried chicken is to die for! It's not a fancy, romantic kind of restaurant, but, if a friendly, clean and delicious casual experience is what you're seeking, this is it.
