finally made it to Laura Albert's for lunch. Food was awesome! I got the seared tuna sandwich. nice, thick cut of tuna, seared wonderfully, piled high with fresh tomato. side of asian slaw which i did feel was missing a little something but couldn't place it. also, this was a little expensive for a place i could come on the regular (good thing it was a work lunch), $13 for the sandwich, but def worth it!
Personally I have always had a great time here. Everyone is really chill, nice. Good drinks, awesome place out back.
I love this place. Food is great and the owner is so nice and just lovely! They also have free WiFi so its a nice place to drink some coffee or eat your lunch with your laptop. I ate there today and the food was delish!
Surprisingly fun place to host a private party and slurp down a few "Trash Cans." Place is low key, but in a weird location (across from old Vickery's that's now closed, boo hoo : ( Wish the pool table was full size, but still OK. Food is high quality fare, and close to CofC, but it's NOT a place to take a date. Definitely a local happy hour and Boston sports bar. Nice patio, except for the endless horse and buggies coming down Market Street. Reminds me of Abe's in Mt. Pleasant for some reason...
I gotta agree with everyone else...this place is money! i swear i would never have wandered in but i was brought by a couple of coworkers. Food definitely took a minute to get out but not painfully long. The boiled peanuts they bring to the table held me over till my entree came out. the tuna sandwich looked out of control good! Had a bite of the shrimp and sausage jumbalaya which was also great. I had the lamb gyro meat on a hot dog bun with a red chile relish, great special. I would definetly go back.
Personally, I love Oriental Garden. The fish is always very fresh and the rolls are massive. None of those puny rolls you'll have served to you at Tsunami or Wasabi (those places also always fill their rolls with excess cream cheese for some reason, but I digress). While the exterior of the building looks a bit neglected, the product served inside is always quality.
Service on the other hand...let's just say it's best to use the drive-through window.
If atmosphere is what you're looking for, there are plenty of great, high-end sushi places in Charleston. Trust me, I love O-Ku, Bambu and the like as much as I love Oriental Garden. It's a different kind of place, but it's great to be able to get quality sushi on a weeknight from a drive-thru.
Tasty, nicely flavoured food, no smoking, good service and nice and clean inside. I do wish the benches had cushions on them.
The chips are too greasy and the salsa is nothing special. Give me Zia's salsa please. But the dishes were delicious and I will be back.
I would like to see a special showing off the chef's talent so I have something to look forward to. I'm happy to pay a bit more for it !!
I've been there three times. Had the veggie burger, chicken sandwich, and chicken and waffles. Everything was pretty good. What I really loved were the red velvet cupcakes.
I was hesitant at first to try this restaurant because of a bad review by a friend. I probably should not have listened to her (she also thinks Monza has the best pizza in town) because this place is seriously good. If you are a fan of Thai food and don't want to cry over the price tag at Basil up the street then Tasty Thai is the place for you. Lunch is a seriously good deal and you can dial up the heat as much as you want (I've been brave enough to go for the 4 out of 5 level of heat and believe me that will scorch your mouth). The place is huge so you never have to wait for a table and the service is great; I've never had a problem with any of the waitresses. I would recommend the Red Curry, it's my favorite. If you haven't yet, I would head down to Tasty Thai and grab a great lunch at a decent price.However, if you think you are something special and ask for the level 5 out of 5 heat be ready to eat your words: during eating and especially hours later.
I like Santi's a lot. The Camarónes a la Diabla are very good. My only complaint would be that I prefer the salsa at La Hacienda.
What a memorable night. We arrived just a bit early for our reservations and waited about 15 minutes in the bar. As we waited Brett Mckee introduced himself and two gentlemen uprooted from their seats for my wife and my friends wife. Wow that hasn't happened much in the last 40 years. I must say the food was great and cooked to perfection. The service was outstanding. Valet parking was great since it was raining. The restaurant is really a different flare and I personally would recommend eating at the Oaks for anyone visiting town. Best of luck to you Brett. Thanks for the memories.
Delicious fish tacos! At first I was a little hesitant, but the counter girl helped me to make my decision, and I'm so glad she did! I decided to go with the regular fish "on a crunch" (crunchy corn shell) - amazing! Also had a spicy chicken taco on soft flour, which was also very tasty. My boyfriend had 2 steak tacos and said the steak was good, like small bitesize steak pieces - very tender. Great prices too. I really love this place!
Unique flavors of wings and they are delicious! My fav is the rasberry sauced wings. The staff is really down to earth and friendly. I'd avoid dining at lunch. I have heard the service lacks at that time of day. Great low key spot for evening!
The beers were plentiful and cold. The staff were pleasant and very attentive! The food was very good, but it did take a while to be served. Hey, we were really too busy unwinding after a hectic work week to notice! We can't wait to go back this Friday!
O, EVO, let me count the ways!
Pros: Fresh ingredients straight from the farm to your plate. Salads are delicious, Pizza crust is cooked to perfection, toppings make everything come together. Staff are friendly and attentive. Location is clean and bright.
Cons: Wish you were open more often and a tad bit cheaper.
A must for anyone...Will return and recommend to friends.
One of the highlights of the trip!
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.
I thoroughly enjoyed my lunch at Laura Alberts. Not too long ago, I met my girlfriends for a glass of wine. They have quite a selection, but what I enjoyed was the relaxed atmosphere and ambiance. I will be back for their Wednesday dinner! The menu looks fabulous.
Dj Miketech is what makes the saloon the place to be on the weekends. The bar staff is nice, but they keep killing all the good songs with their so called mic skills.
After 1130. They shouldn't do anything but serve drinks. The Dj can handle the crowd.... Love the saloon. The only place I want to be on the weekends.
I had a shrimp etouffee. Nothing fancy but so well balanced a mix of flavors that I enjoyed the last bite more than the first - it grew on me with experience.
My wife comes from the Roussillion region of France, where chicken livers are eaten often. She declares the chicken livers at the Hominy Grill the best she ever had.
And let me second the comment on the lima beans. I never liked lima beans before.
The service was fair, the atmosphere unpretentious almost to a fault. The food is a bargain for the quality.
