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: “El Dorado

pretty legit, as far as hole in the wall mexican places go. a solid menu and chill atmosphere make it easy to become a regular PDQ. the chorichanga is on point, and not something i've seen elsewhere around Charleston. prices are on the cheap side of average. they will start closing down around you if you're still there at 9 on a weeknight, though. some fridays too. guess this just means they need more business! so go!

Re: “Silva Spoon Soul Food Cafe

I encourage you (if you like soul food) to stop by and try Silva Spoon. I think you will appreciate the food and hospitability. If for some reason you do not like the food don't badmouth the place, simple let the staff there know what you didn't like and why!!! No I DO NOT work for the restaurant...

Re: “Pick Thai

WOW! Chicken Pad Prik spiced up to "Thai Hot". Perfectly prepared dish with red and green peppers, onions and a terrific brown sauce. This was a 2 napkin dinner; not for the hands or face but for the runny nose. I'll be back. No more trips downtown or off island for me. James Island is very fortunate to have this fine dining establishment.

Re: “Oscar's Restaurant

In response to the comment below....Wow, coming from a Summerville Hick who has traveled quit a bit to VERY high end restaurants in MANY big cities (Le Cirque in NYC, Fleur De Lys in San Fran and Vegas just to name a few) , I will say I have had mostly good experiences at Oscar's. I think the Woodlands is COMPLETELY over-rated, the food is barely average, it's snotty, and NOT worth the money. I enjoy the quaint atmosphere in the bar at Oscars, the staff is always attentive and remembers us when we walk in. I think they have good steaks, (and they are just as comparable as what I was served at the Woodlands, in an atmosphere that I do not need to wear a tie, and I don't have to whisper my conversation due to the stuffiness). But what do I know, since I am just a hick from Summerville that has probably dined in quite a few more high end restaurants than most.

Re: “The Griffon

Thanks for the suggestion! While I didn't have the "Honey Badger Wrap," I can tell this staff is the ideal group to create and serve it in the city. Thanks again for the insight!

Re: “Barsa Tapas Lounge & Bar

My bff and I enjoyed some pre-event drinks and tapas at Barsa Saturday night. The wine selection is varied and reasonably priced, we shared the dates, calamari and scallops. Next time we will be getting our own scallops, they were perfectly pan seared and the pumpkin broth gave a nice winter touch to the light scallops. We both agreed that the atmosphere would be great for date night and there were plenty of dishes that the men would enjoy too.

Re: “Boone's Bar

Very good. No complaints. Will definitely be back for wings and bourbon. Bartender lacked a bit of knowledge about drinks/beers, but again, no complaints. The guy who appeared to be the manager was very knowledgeable and filled in the blanks. Really liked the atmosphere and the bar itself. The temp regulated drafts/taps is a nice option. Wings are a bit pricey, but worth it. Half price day makes them well worth it. Looking forward to trying more menu items.

Re: “Kim's Restaurant

It's a sad day for the Charleston food scene! Alas, Kim's is no more!

Re: “Pho #1

Not the ONLY place for Pho in Charleston, but out of the two choices, pretty delicious. Quyen's Pho is better.

Re: “The Griffon

Great Place… With one exception

I really enjoyed the Griffon. Food was good and the beer selection was great. However, one bartender almost ruined it. It’s a small guy with black hair kind of spiked. Lee or Lloyd (I think). Wore a flower on his shirt and was very rude! Anyway, the place is great, but avoid this guy if possible…

Re: “Raul's Taqueria & Mexican Grill

A welcomed guest to a strech of Rivers Ave that includes little more than fast food chains and terrible chinese buffets. The decor is very cozy and colorful. Food is on point and delicious. Service is provided by some of the nicest people. with $5 amazing burritos it's a must for a quick lunch or a margarita at happy hour. Don't forget to try the horchata during a work lunch when the boozing is frowned upon.

Re: “Queen Street Grocery & Café

I don't know what some of these people are talking about. I think the food and service is great. My only problem is the price--I don't want to pay 22$ for two sammies and two drinks. Also my BF has celiac's disease, bring back the gluten-free options! The "hipster/punk" guy has always been helpful and respectful to me.

Re: “Red Orchids

Sauces and soups were outstanding. Chicken was a little dry, but everything overall was pretty good. Definitely one of the better Chinese food locations in Charleston.

Re: “Sunflower Café

New to this state. Best hidden strip mall I have ever had the pleasure of going too. I started off by stopping for a Great Bloodymary next door, and ended with the most scrumpdillious eggs Benny I have ever tasted. customer 4 LIFE.

Re: “Grindz Burgers & Brew

This is the place to get great burgers and occasionally a beer. Every time I have gone my burgers have been great! The location is tucked away in a rundown shopping center, I drove past it 3 times before I actually found it. As far as the decor inside, its nothing great!! The decor is bland, bright lights in the dining area, fake flowers, cheap tablecloths, no pictures, no uniforms, and radio is always playing.
As far as the food goes, I don't care if I'm eating on a cheap tablecloth with fake flowers surrounding me, I'll eat there again and again. Now if I was going out for the night to grab some drinks with a few friends, I would go somewhere else.

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".

Re: “Coconut Joe's Beach Grill & Bar

Always had a great time here, sure its a bit touristy, but living here, its nice to go out and do something fun like this place. Great ocean views, great Jerk chicken and they serve up a good solid breakfast too.

Only complaint would be that service while fair, is almost always very slow. The restaurant def runs on island time, but heck, with a view like that who cares.
