Re: “A.C.'s Bar and Grill

re: Anonymous_z

Maybe you were overserved somewhere else and no in shape to be served more. Businesses have the right to refuse service to whomever they please. Maybe you don't tip.

Re: “A.C.'s Bar and Grill

Went at 11:30 pm and the bouncer literally did not let me in...I'm 21. I am there most weekends. My ID was real and I showed the cops across the street. The owner should maybe look into this...

Re: “Indaco

Outstanding quality, service, and decor. We have always had a great meal - menu has something for everyone. Great location with free parking. Love this place

Re: “Coastal Crust

Coastal Crust was the worst decision we made for our wedding. While their food is good, their customer service and follow through on contracted items is non-existent. We had specific requests (written into our contract) to make the day truly "ours". Brian never took care of any of them and months before the wedding our planner began asking about the status with little to no response and promises that were broken regularly. While we negotiated a rate due to the fact that we were providing a few items when the contract was originally procured, Brian continued to fight us when he couldn't provide what he promised which required us to provide even more (at retail) just 2 months before the wedding. We came close to firing him at this time and he renegotiated another rate during a meeting when he was asking us to rethink our position. Reluctantly we stuck with him, giving him the benefit of the doubt...big mistake. He took notes (again) and still didn't complete our wine tasting as requested (wine types were not correct again), not to mention he was late and we tasted wines while batting away a barrage of fruit flies in his location. He continued to falter on his promises and 10 days before the wedding we were told he raised the rates and we were basically told we could pay them or find someone else. In addition, 3 days before the wedding we found out that one of the specified beers he was supposed to be providing was not secured and we had to select something else, again, something we ended up procuring and supplying ourselves at retail. Now on to our wedding day, Brian and his team did show up (yes, sadly this was a concern of ours at this point). The guests enjoyed the appetizer that was provided and while we had specifically requested service for the bride and groom while we took photos during cocktail hour we only received a beer from one of our groomsmen when we asked for it. Dinner service starts and we (the bride and groom) are standing in a line of about 20 people and Coastal Crust ignored the fact (trust me, I wasn't hard to miss in my large dress)...our wedding planner ended up getting our food and serving us herself. Later we found out that Brian did not secure the one local craft beer he was supposed to and did not provide the domestic beer options requested for our two picky guests that were in the wedding party. In addition, he continued to charge us for a second appetizer that I realized was never provided after quizzing my guests days after the wedding. Brian would not provide a new invoice removing the items that he did not provide and wanted us to pay in full; to which we refused. We offered what we felt was a fair amount given the circumstances, lack of service / product, and the amount of stress he caused. During these emails after our wedding, Brian was everything but professional or polite and in his own roundabout way called us names and accused us of basically stealing from him (because we weren't willing to pay for things he didn't provide). At one point he even told us we were the worst decision he had made - believe me, we felt the same but never said this to him and remained professional and were willing to go to court over his actions during the course of our wedding. Hiring Coastal Crust still leaves a bad taste in my mouth and I barely even ate his food and only drank the beer/wine that we provided ourselves. If you want a vendor that you must babysit and still get things wrong, Coastal Crust is your go to.

Re: “Ye Olde Fashioned

I'd definitely go here for ice cream. Not so much for food as the food disappointed.

It's like you're chilling in your own backyard with a personal chef/bartender. Food is awesome and friendly folks around.

Re: “The Taco Spot

Nope. Not good. Terrible atmosphere at both locations. Food is not tasty. Corn tortillas are bland.
I'd forget about everything else if the tacos were great. They are not. I gave it two tries and that's it for me!

Re: “Dell'z Uptown

The BEST vegetarian/vegan/gluten free joint I've ever been to. I literally could eat the "Snobby Joe" every single day for lunch. Also, check out the Jazzy Pizza.

Re: “Halls Chophouse

Wonderful! Divine! Exquisite!

And the superlatives keep coming. Which means the review is not legitimate.

Re: “Halls Chophouse

I've always had a wonderful experience at Hall's Chophouse, the food being very tasty & to my satisfaction. The Gospel Sunday Brunch is just perfect, admittedly the experience is much better when seated downstairs where the Plantation Singers are situated but the atmosphere & music travels well. The staff have always been so friendly, not just Mr Hall but all the servers we had. We have visitors coming into town & this is definitely top of the list to show off. The She-Crab soup in particular was exquisite as was their grits. The triple juice mimosa was simply divine!

Re: “Mike Calder's Buffalo Pub

Kim is the best bartender I've ever had. Every time I enter this incredible establishment I've greeted and a beer is placed before me. The food is amazing! In response to the heavy flow of late night visitors they added specials for food and beverage employees. I'm pretty positive the 4$ shot specials never change but that's by no means a bad thing. Every time friends are in town this is our first stop. If you want a good experience, Caulders is a must!!

Re: “Smoke BBQ

I really dig this place. The staff is always awesome and the prices are reasonable, teetering on inexpensive. The pork is magical and smoky. $3 pork tacos at happy hour. Do it. The wings are a mighty tasty treat as well.

Re: “Smoke BBQ

It is criminally overpriced and mediocre. They charged $18 for pulled pork or $21 for brisket with two sides. The pork was okay but nothing special and no taste of smoke at all. The brisket was a study in bad barbecue technique, starting with too much fat and ending with being overcooked. The sides sounded great but were bland and flavorless.

Re: “The Taco Spot

Very good tacos and burritos. Taste great but the portions aren't very big. Get chips to fill up the void.

Re: “Moe's Crosstown Tavern

I had brunch for the first time at Moe's last weekend. By far one of the best I've had in Charleston! Fantastic food, little to no wait time because we got a seat at the bar, and no pretentious prices. Loved it and I'm a brunch snob.

Re: “Mike Calder's Buffalo Pub

Been going to calders for almost a year now and the Food is terrible since jason left. The cook now can't cook food at all. Ordered a burger medium rare it came out rare barley cooked.. fries are over cooked everytime, have had to send them back multiple times. This happens multiple times a week. Will only grab drinks there from now on. Never eating there again until they get a cook that knows what they are doing. 1 star out of 5 for food. 5 out if 5 for bartender service when Kim or Nina are working
