Re: “The Break Room

We love the Break Room and everyone there! They have the best food! (Thank you, Nate!) Tony is the best bartender ever...we met "Bartender Bobby" the other night and he did a great job. Bobby is a very nice person! Good prices. The regulars there are the nicest people you would ever want to meet...Jan, Pete, Steve, Jerry, Missy, Jake, and of course...Willie :) just to name a few of the many. Great, very friendly, welcoming crowd. The Break Room is upscale without being snooty. We found the Break Room quite a while ago and we have become "Vacation Regulars"! Made good friends and we look forward to go there each time. We always feel welcomed by all! ~ Terry and Barbara Bozon, Raleigh, NC~

Re: “Barsa Tapas Lounge & Bar

Yo amo Barsa! This place is just fantastic and the folks running it make it all come together beautifully. The food is fresh, tasty and authentic for the most part- after all, we're in South Carolina and there are limits. But, having said that, overall it's a great dining and drinking experience with friendly professional servers and a top notch bartender (the evening we were there it was Brittany) who was very pleasant, very quick and attentive to a packed bar. The kitchen put out meticulous, beautifully presented dishes and everything we ate was tops. Gracias Barsa. We will be back! Again and again and again.

Re: “Barsa Tapas Lounge & Bar

Went there for dinner and drinks last Thursday and it was fantastic! The casual atmosphere was fun and inviting. The Sangrias are amazing and only $4 on Thursdays by the way. The service was good but the food was even better. We had the calamari and steak crostini among other things. Delicious. My friends and I have been looking for a good tapas restaurant and I think we've found it. We'll definitely be back. Looking forward to trying their new lunch menu! Also, if anyone is looking for it, their new web site is BarsaCharleston.com

Re: “Barsa Tapas Lounge & Bar

Went to Barsa last saturday evening. Busy, but not unmanageable as is often the case on King Street. My friend and I sat at the bar and had fantastic service from Brittany. Drinks came promptly and were generous. As the small plates began to arrive (we were hungry and ordered seven of them), other wait staff pitched in to keep things moving with fresh utensiles and plates....We had a great evening thanks to a kitchen who can produce terrific food and a staff who cares enough to provide great service. Run, don't walk....Just don't take my corner of the bar.

Re: “Torch Velvet Lounge

Love the atmosphere and ambiance - sophisticated and elitist while still offering a totally chill environment. Music is awesome and love to sit back and enjoy a hookah on occasion. Easily my favorite hang out in all of Charleston. Torch knows how to do things right!

Re: “Torch Velvet Lounge

Torch is a great place to go for a good time. Great bartenders and waitresses. They make you feel welcome and their service is great. DJ MOO MOO was there the night we stopped in and he was terrific. Will definitely go back again with my friends. You meet some interesting people at Torch. You have got to stop in.

Re: “Et Cetera Gourmet

I stumbled across this little store in my musings on the island. What a great find! It happened to be late afternoon, just before they started serving a tapas dinner menu. So, my friend and I were invited to sip a glass of wine while they finished preparations. What a great idea! We each had a glass of wine while perusing the great groceries that lined the shelves. The chef told us that some of the grocery items are highlighted on the tapas courses and we shared "foodie" stories. The tapas was delightful; fitting pricing, true tapas style portions, (we shared a total of five items) and although we were full, couldn't resist the french pressed coffees and cannoli! What afun little find! I will be travelling back to the store for more of the treats that I couldn't sample in one visit! Great service, friendly staff, overall fantastic offerings at the small little happenstance (for me) shop!

Re: “Torch Velvet Lounge

Torch stands on its own for Charleston's swankiest, sexiest bar. With sounds from Charleston's best dj's and the hottest staff around, who wouldn't have a good time.

Re: “Torch Velvet Lounge

I have to disagree with "frannybnanny". Torch is actually a pretty cool place to hang out on any given night. I suggest N-O-T avoinding this place at ANY cost, bucause you'll be missing out on one of Charleston's best bars. And the bartenders have always been very friendly every single time i've been there. Highly Recommend!!

Re: “Torch Velvet Lounge

Torch provides a classy atmosphere with great Music from some of Charlestons best DJ's. They are the only local bar with DJ's 7 nights a week. The Staff is Hott! And they have an array of speciality Martinis and Hookas to choose from! Charleston's 1 and only upscale Lounge. Reminds me of Ultralounges ive visited in NYC, D.C., and Miami just to name a few. Always a good time! 5 Stars *****hands down!

Re: “Et Cetera Gourmet

What a quaint store! My husband and I were blown away with the charm and customer service of Rich! He gave us a warm welcome and tour of the store like we were friends of the family. It was nice to see someone so enthusiastic and proud about his store! There were lots of unique items to peak the interest of a "foodie." If we ever visit the Charleston area again, we will definetely be back for the tapas evenings!

Re: “Chai's Lounge

We LOVE Chai!! The bartenders at Chai are the best in Charleston, ask for Xan, he is by far the BEST bartender I've ever had!! Also, try the specials--they're always delicious!! One of my favorite items on the menu is the edamame dip, you've got to try it!!

Re: “The Porch

Being originally from Texas, I had to try the brisket and it was damn good! I'm going back this weekend and will eat there again!

Re: “Voodoo Tiki Bar and Lounge

We want to thank everyone that came out last night for our new menu unveiling! The response to 50% off night was so good that we were completely overwhelmed and had to stop taking food orders so we could restock the kitchen for round two! We sold 3 times the amount of food that we've sold on our busiest night ever, so our apologies if you had to wait- we hope the drinks and the company helped pass the time and that, in the end, you enjoyed our new menu. Thanks again for your continued support!
