Re: “Edmund's Oast

I am not sure what the previous review is all about, but I am guessing there is a common trend from all the hating on top restaurants. My 3 experiences at Edmund's Oast have all been fantastic. I will go ahead and state that I don't own a single pair of "skinny jeans" or even loafers. I do have a lot of love for craft beer, creative food dishes, and especially charcuterie, which is exactly what the Oast aims for in clientele.
First, let's talk about the beer. Beer is the focus of this place, and it is unique in many different ways because of it. Edmund's Oast is not just a brew pub, but also an amazing beer bar. The brews on tap at this place will impress anyone who loves craft beer. And the selection isn't just focused on rare beers like Cantillon and JW Lees from Europe, but they also keep a nice supply of local beers on tap. I also like that they are sticking to unique beers for the house production brewery, as this doesn't step on any toes in the local brewery scene. If beer isn't your thing, the mixed drinks are pretty tasty as well. I am hooked on the Red Wedding, as bourbon is my go-to outside of beer.
The food... well, that is almost better than the beer. Chef Andy is creating some wonderful cured meats, which is an art much like brewing. At this point, I have tasted almost every item on the menu. The highlights, other than charcuterie, are dishes like the pumpkin custard, lamb meatballs, burgers, and porridge. I even enjoyed the hearts and gizzards dish, which was a first. The very first time we visited, I thought the porridge was a bit too salty, but that was quickly fine tuned to a more balanced salinity. Some of the dishes may be a bit small, but they are "small plates" after all. I still felt full after sharing a few with my table.
Finally, I think it is worth noting that the ambiance is very relaxing in EO. The wait staff is always attentive, and the restaurant always feels very clean. The decorating was all done with taste, and even the bathrooms felt high end. I have been to this place dressed in jeans and a t-shirt, and I have been there with a button up collar shirt. Either way, I never felt out of place. I hope the Oast keeps the energy going that they have shown in their short time in the Charleston restaurant/beer scene. I know that I will always be recommending this place to any new visitors.

Re: “Bay Street Biergarten

How can you review a place if you didn't eat there, didn't mention the beer/cocktails and your only criticism is that you can't use the prepaid car at the bar?

Get a life.

Re: “Charleston Beer Works

Went to CBW to watch NCAA tourney... had a burger and FF. It was awesome, hand ground burgers and hand-cut french fries. Huge selection of beers and a bunch of Holy City drafts. I am honestly impressed. One of the patrons told me that the cheese steaks were extremely good. I know what I will be having next time... Keep up the good work

Re: “Foster's Pub

I'll keep it short and sweet... Great food. Super friendly and attentive owner. Excellent staff. When I am in town, I try to come here often.

@Aleyeast-I clicked on your name and read all your reviews. You come across as a small, negative, petty, angry little man who fancies himself a well travelled, and scholarly critic. You are truly ridiculous. You probably sit at home with your little beer book plagiarizing content as your own thoughts. Do the area a favor and please stay home. I will gladly discuss this with you in person though if you wish...

Re: “Art's Bar & Grill

I've eaten there and it's honestly good and the best evening is when any night "Baby Fat" is rocking the joint. They are excellent musicians.

Brunch is served Sunday for 11am-3pm and then the regular menu from 3pm-until.

Re: “The Brick

I just wanted to let everyone know that this bar became under new ownership back in August of 2010 and I ask that you don't hold any of the negative comments prior to that date against us. Even though we kept the same name, we have greatly improved the bar and it's atomosphere. I invite everyone to come and check the bar out for yourself and for anyone who had a negative experience I ask that you come by and give it another shot. Thanks and I hope to see you at The Brick!

Re: “Closed for Business

We were looking for a place for lunch yesterday and we came upon "Closed for Business" and decided to give it a try. I ordered the Grilled Cheese w/ tomato soup. The grilled cheese was DELICIOUS on thick sliced, buttery bread w/ three kinds of perfectly melted cheese. The tomato soup was also delicious, very fresh. My boyfriend ordered the fried chicken sandwich w/ french fries. That was also really yummy, the chicken was very lightly fried and not greasy. The fries, fresh cut, were so good we were fighting over the last few! Our server was very sweet and upbeat. The overall ambiance was very calming and inviting and I loved the handmade-looking lamps on the booth tables! I like knowing my food comes from local businesses, and it was well worth the $25 for lunch. We will be back again soon to try some of those craft beers and the pork rinds! Thanks for a GREAT lunch!

Re: “Rehab Bar & Grill

Just discovered where the dman is. In top form as usual. Great place. Have some terrific acts. Hoping they can do more in the food department but what they have is good. Find a signature dish or something. Everyone should try this new place. What a better place to tell your friends you spent the night at......REHAB bar and grill
