Re: “Black Bean Co.

Every time we have had Black Bean deliver to us they always forget several items from our order and we never get a receipt as well. Worst delivery. Always getting the order wrong. Called back to tell them and they just put me on hold and I've already been waiting over 10 minutes. Enjoy their food but getting it delivered is just a complete waste and a nightmare.

Re: “Black Bean Co.

I love going through the drive-thru at BBC, but the service inside the restaurant has been awful on the 3 occasions I've eaten there. I don't mind laid-back service, but in one visit, my waitress forgot multiple drinks, didn't put my order in at the same time as my dining companions', and wasn't at all apologetic. In an attempt to rush my food out, the kitchen delivered my "sautéed" fish almost entirely raw. To be fair, they did comp my meal - but I don't think I'll risk eating in, again.

The yogurt & granola are the best!

Re: “Marina Variety Store

Good, simple food in a diner atmosphere. No frills and has the decor of a late 70's Dennys. But the food is Okay, and interesting menu items, like alligator with grits. If you go on weekend mornings, you will see nothing but locals, lots of handshakes, old blue hairs and the southern church crowd. It is a step back in time.

Re: “Black Bean Co.

visiting from north Indiana, we were very pleased with the bb co. !!! we had eaten several local rest. and were staying on folly beach and ate almost all to their rest. and we would have gone back several times to bb co. it was that awesome! the cleanliness, to taste, to service, my husband didnt want to try it, because it was "healthy alternative" but after eating a breakfast wrap, the best yogurt/granola on earth, we wish we would have found it sooner in our vaca!!! we left the next morning! we have been home for 2 weeks, and we are still missing our best breakfast ever!!! thanks for the hospitality!!!

Re: “Black Bean Co.

Pretty darn good. And they deliver! The sides are inconsistant but the wraps are good. They use some sort of cubed up deli meat as their protiens and at first it can be a little off putting if you're expecting fresher meat but I have grown to like it. The dif kinds of tofu are what I normally go for anyway and they are great.
Could be a little less pricey but I'll deal.

Re: “The Bagel Shop

This is the best bagel in Charleston. Whoever is behind the baking definitely knows what they're doing and consistently cranks out perfect bagels every time. In addition to the bagels, they make all their own flavored cream cheeses in house which have all been delicious. They have a menu of amazing breakfast and lunch sandwiches or you can build your own out of their deli case. I also love that they offer Taylor Ham which I had never tried before a friend recommended it to me and now I cannot turn back. Give it a try griddled with an egg and cheese on a bagel - you will thank me. Also they offer fresh Nova lox which is nearly impossible to find at a bagel shop around here.

They have a full espresso bar as well as delicious Intelligenista house coffee and fresh squeezed orange juice. The only critique I would offer is the size of the dining room is rather tiny. So if you go doing a prime time, I would probably plan on getting your food to go. But wherever you sit down to enjoy your food, you will not be disappointed!

Re: “Black Bean Co.

Really tasty. I mean it, I enjoy their food. My problem is it is overpriced. I wish they could cut their prices by $2 across the board. As-is I almost never eat there

Re: “Black Bean Co.

Never consistent with food or service. Service is always rude. Always leaving something off especially on the salads. Gives a lot of greens but never enough toppings and for $10.80 let's get real. Would love to eat there again but being let down time and again I not worth getting angry every time!

Re: “Black Bean Co.

While the food is good, they are extremely inconsistent. For example, on more than one occasion, I have ordered a spinach wrap and received it with no spinach. Also on more than one occasion I've ordered a Strawberry Fields salad and received it with no strawberries! When I order kids meals for my kids, they give me the drink that goes with it less than half the time. It just seems to me that there is an extreme lack of training that affects the quality of the food and service.

Re: “The Pit Stop Deli

With quality ingredients and fresh-baked bread, you won't find a better sandwich in Charleston. The sides and iced Chai tea are delicious, too. We'll be back --- soon!

Re: “Sunflower Café

New to this state. Best hidden strip mall I have ever had the pleasure of going too. I started off by stopping for a Great Bloodymary next door, and ended with the most scrumpdillious eggs Benny I have ever tasted. customer 4 LIFE.

Re: “Hominy Grill

What passes for good food here is better comedy than most of what you'll get at Theatre 99. I assume the head chef makes only sporadic visits. Or maybe he's in line with all the overweight tourists outside. Someone needs to tell him he doesn't need to wait out there; he can go on back to the kitchen and take over the reins from that stoned CofC student. Seriously, Denny's makes a better biscuit. Who cares, right? You've got a cash cow. James Beard would be so proud!

Re: “Swamp Fox Restaurant & Bar

I have been to a lot of the new restaurants in town, but my wife and I went back to one that we have not been to in a long time. The Swamp Fox in the Francis Marion hotel is a true classic. We took advantage of Restaurant Weeks 3 for $30 menu. WOW were we impressed. We started with fried green tomatoes that were cooked to perfection. The goat cheese and pepper jelly that were paired with the tomato made me want to have it for the whole meal, not just for a starter. Than we moved on to some of the best flounder we have had in a while. It had just the right amount of spicy peach glaze on a crunchy light panko breading. Finally, we finished with the apple tart with amazing caramel sauce. With the food tasting this great and the incredible atmosphere of the Francis Marion hotel and view of the square, not only will we be back, but I think I might just become a regular!

Re: “Folly Beach Shrimp Company

Watch your card...witness the vanishing waiter!....We waited with our empty plates and glasses for over 45 minutes. Finally we walked up to the bar where four employees gathered to talk instead of noticing we no longer had a waiter. I asked them where our waiter was...their response "ugh I dunno I just got here"....I left a crappy tip...I should not have left one at all. Three days later they put a larger tip on my credit card!....tis a shame the food was good..perhaps one day they will find people who want to work.

Re: “Hominy Grill

The shrimp and grits are the best in Charleston (which means the best anywhere, really). The Cobb salad and the Chicken Ranch salad (a frequent special with fresh corn, fried green tomatoes, chicken, and a home made ranch dressing with a punch) are long-time favorites. Every "vegetable" (sides, really) on the blackboard is fresh, local, home-made and amazing. The fried green tomato BLT rocks. And how does a southern chef make such awesome french fries and huevos rancheros? Oh, and did I mention the fried chicken? The food is always top-notch and consistent. The service is knowledgeable and friendly. And since they've added more enclosed space, the wait is more tolerable (shorter and with cocktails!), the restrooms easier (two instead of one...no line), and they have a bartender cranking out creative southern-based adult beverages. Rock on, Hominy Grill.

Re: “Hominy Grill

My coworkers and I ate here today while checking off items from your 101 list. I have only ever been here for breakfast, which I loved.
The patio is now closed in. I, personally don't like it. I loved the patio. It was like a secret hideway from the tourists.
The food was lackluster. I ordered the club and I could have had the same sandwich anywhere. My coworker ordered the shrimp and grits (which were very good) but are only offered at a dinner portion for $16.95 at lunch.
The service was the real issue. Our waiter seemed bothered to be serving us. Rushed us through the meal and everytime he spoke he seemed annoyed we were even there. We all work in the hospitality industry as well and know you have to give the customers a reason to return. Average food and poor service are not a reason.
