Re: “Cory's Grilled Cheese

When I went there months ago, the service was dog slow.

Re: “Hominy Grill

After 15 years of eating at Hominy Grill on occasion, I had a craving for shrimp & grits recently and stopped by for lunch all by myself. I was shocked at the disgusting glob of goo that was presented to me...it just LOOKED terrible. Regardless of the appearance, I dived in and, yes, looks weren't deceiving - it was TERRIBLE. After reading year after year about the BEST shrimp & grits in Charleston, I finally tried it & it was awful. The service wasn't much better. What a shame. The two stars are for easy access to parking & the guy bussing tables that finally came over & took this atrocity from my table.

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: “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: “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.

Re: “Hominy Grill

My last two visits for lunch have been so disappointing. Servers are zombie-like with no interaction or introduction. Just walk up and say "there's the special board. Ready to order?" Bloody mary's had to be sent back because they were basically tomato flavored water. Cheese grits had virtually no hint of cheese. It's been embarrassing because both times I was entertaining guests for their first time at a well known restaurant in charleston. Come on, guys, don't slip now.

Re: “Black Bean Co.

Great food, but definitely not for the cost conscious.

Re: “Hominy Grill

Went to the Sunday brunch yesterday. Not as good as it was cracked up to be. The salmon patties had little salmon in them and for a "home cooking" touted place our food came out surprisingly fast. Fast is not such a bad thing but to us fast does not necessarily mean home cooking which is what we expected. The shrimp and grits were over priced at $17 and were also not what we expected and all three dishes were bland. Overall, may give it another shot but not anytime soon.
