We have been open for 2 years and please notice that I only gave myself 4 stars....that's because we know that we have to come in everyday and work hard at getting better. There is one thing you will be assured of at The DIG and thats hospitality! We are proud of the food, the staff, and the bar/restaurant itself. Come and give us a shot, I know you will be pleasantly surprised!
As far as Island residents' comments; this is coming directly from Brian Mahoney, owner at the Daniel Island Grille, If I find out you are slamming me because you are affiliated with the other restaurant down the street please stop and let your credentials stand on there own merit. I hate that you have time to slam the competition but you obviously do. If you do not have affiliation than please come by the DIG and ask for me I would like an opportunity to change your views.
the fried chicken sandwich was delicious. the accompaning fries were from the nearest burger king and the "famous" fried pie was a only a slight improvement over the fruit pies available (two for a dollar) at the golden arches. it is comfortable and clean, watched over by a friendly and helpful staff. if one is careful, he or she will be rewarded with a delectable dining experience.
5th Visit. The 4th with a friend for lunch, a burger and salad, very good taste, Friend had the Philly, loved it. Service was great. The 5th time was last night for dinner, Ribeye for me, just fine and the crab cakes, must disagree with the one reviewer, they are great! Like I said before, no cake, all crab! My wife had the fish and chips, crisy, lots of pepper and the hot catsup is a good touch. I think this place will just get better, even with reviews from the craft beer guy! I think he would just like to see the staff better educated in something that appears to be his passion. We can always learn! As I said before, beer just makes me pee. So I can't comment. But the food, friendly service and the fact that there is not much on that side of MP make it a spot that I'll continue to support. I'm sure if "Crafty" continues to frequent the pub and shares his knowledge, the servers will eventually gain the all important beer knowledge to make Fosters into a proper PUB.
I agree, I too like prices listed, I don't like suprises. I'll mention this to Craig next time I'm in!
WOW PEOPLE!! Are you really that bored with your lives??? Your more than nitpicky, your simply complainers!!! I got a headache while reading your so called reviews. There is a reason why people like you shouldn't go out. I'm disappointed that you are so quick to judge. Can't you just go to a bar to have a drink and unwind? I as well as several friends have spent a few great evenings at the Pub since the soft opening! We love the beer selection and so far the food has been good too. Of course there is always room for improvements. Can you let them actually be open more than a month before you go off the deep end! TO THE FOSTERS CREW....I think your all gonna be just fine! You can't please everyone. Look forward to our next visit.
Nice bar with friendly people and a large beer selection, but there are too few pool tables and dart boards. I think that there should be a time limit on games.
(Actualy 3.5 stars, see below about the fish tacos.) We visited your fine Southern city from the frozen North last weekend, were turned away from Hank's on Saturday night (no tables until a quarter of 9pm) and rather than take the hostess's recommendation (go to their Italian place) wandered over to Henry's House for crab cake, foie gras and shrimp and tilapia tacos. Someone in the kitchen is doing something right. The fish in the taco, though tasty, was less than firm, but the sweet pepper and tomato relishes really made the meal. It was a teeny little bit loud, but we enjoyed all the songs on the jukebox too. Thanks!
AC's in the best dive in town for fries and a coke. No joke. This place rules. Their fries will knock your socks off. <3
I live right down the street from this bar, my favorite is the Barbecue Bacon and Cheddar Burger. I love the way their burgers are char-broiled and have that smokey flavour :D
And I can even smell them cooking when I get home from work which always entices me.
I like it a lot. Lisa and Vanessa are both great tenders and very experienced. Changes to happy hour deals are unwelcoming, but I understand that they were losing on the 50% appetizers. Esp. the seafood nachos. Nice place to bring a date and relax watching a game, or having a quality dinner. Please change back the batter on the shrimp. This new one sucks
I've been to many sports bars in the area, but Rendezvous sticks out really well above the rest. The decor is terrific, the food is very good, the beer selection is pleasing, the TVs are everywhere, the bathrooms are ridiculously clean, and they do a fine job with events, kids, bar area, and presentation. The giant-screen is clearly visible, the sound system is solid, and when they do have music the reproduction is great.
I've been there six times and have never been disappointed with anything. I know the name sounds like a strip club, but this is a fine place to eat, drink, and watch some games!
Leave Mt Pleasant's overdone/overpriced area, escape downtown's college/hoity-toity air, and you arrive in The Mill in Park Circle. Where the same beer you get at Poe's for $6.00 is $3.50, with laid back bartenders, and where real people, not name-droppers out on the playboy/playgirl prowl, just go out for a good time.
I have to agree with charleston42 about the whole seat yourself thing. It's a bit silly given that Poe's is packed literally every hour of their operating time. I have to disagree about the quality of the food. I have been there 3 or 4 times and have found the food to always be excellent and the service attentive as well.
Great clientele, customer service and food. Definately a place to go for a night out!
I was in town visiting family and we stopped by Finz on a Saturday night. We ordered 3 of the tapas plates and two of the fried seafood baskets and everything was delicious! We had the buffalo shrimp with blue cheese (the shrimp were large and fresh), the salmon and potato cakes, and the crab cakes. We had oyster and shrimp baksets, all fried, and they were awesome! The shrimp were fat and fresh with a light breading, and the oysters were so plump and clean, also with a very tasty light breading. I will definitely go back next time I'm in town. The prices were excellent too!
