Re: “The Red Pepper

Go Somewhere Else!

My husband and I took out his little sister for dinner. They ordered Chicken Parmigiana for $16.95 each. Both chicken breasts were BURNT and UNEATABLE. We complained to the waiter and waited for a manager to come by our table. No manager came by. We were CHARGED for both chicken dinners with two $3.25 cannolis on the house.

I couldn't believe the kitchen would serve burnt food and hide it under cheese and sauce like that. I couldn't believe the waiter didn't do more to make our dinner acceptable to eat. I couldn't believe no one cared.

They proudly put a 5 star rating on their door but don't back it up. AVOID THIS PLACE!

Re: “Mozzo

The breakfast items and sandwiches are very good and location is super convenient with work. My only downside is I wish the soups weren't soo salty and this has been about 3-4 times now!! Otherwise I really enjoy it there.

Re: “The Green Goat

Excellent food and service! Try the pork chop and the meatloaf. Their collards are blow your mind delicious. Down right wonderful locally sourced home cooked goodness.

Re: “Market Street Saloon

It' quite interesting how at midnight on November 6th your "hottest bartender" was down 300 votes yet still seemed to win. Good to know the winner of Charleston's hottest bartender is predetermined.

Re: “Stars Restaurant Rooftop and Grill Room

I was a regular. Not any longer. Worst customer service ever. showed up at 5:25 PM for happy hour on the rooftop. parked in the Stars valet parking. told the bartender that we were parked there and the valet had not shown up yet. he said no problem. had dinner at the downstairs bar. finished at 7:05PM. The Stars valet had called parking enforcement and ticketed my car for $45. Valet manager said he came in and asked if the car belonged to a patron. stars manager then tells me to bad he is not responsible for the valet (who works for Stars) or the city. Will never go back again. plenty of other great dining with great customer service.

Re: “Mozzo

I've been there for breakfast just about monthly since they opened, and I love, love, love their bagel sandwiches and breakfast burritos. The portions are large, and they don't skimp on the more expensive parts of the recipe (lox, et cetera).

My only knock on them is that the ordering/service flow isn't logical and sometimes that means a while before your order is taken. But it is never really a "problem."

Overall: big fan.

Re: “Mozzo

The real deal in Charleston Metro ! First, this is the ONLY DELI THAT PREPARES ITS OWN ROAST BEEF, ROAST TURKEY AND CORNED BEEF ON PREMISES. Hot Corned Beef is THE BEST WITHIN 822 miles [NYC]. Secondly, the portions are so large, it is not unusual to see folks rewrapping 1/2 sandwich for later.

Nearby Southern Season Deli and its piggish ownership took over the parking lot but patrons of MOZZO have not been deterred. They keep streaming in for lunch through to 4pm closing. So. Season Deli charges the same or more for sandwiches less than half the size + certainly of much lower quality.

MOZZO bread & salads are fresh-made. MOZZO ROCKS !!

Re: “Southerly Restaurant & Patio

We went to The Southerly early one week day evening to avoid witnessing a kitchen under pressure. We ordered several signature dishes [ according to the waitperson ]. The ambience, furnishings, and waitpersons' uniforms speak upscale. The general presentation seems to convey southern cooking with proprietary treatments. Our order included 2 Budweisers. We also ordered Butternut Squash Soup, BBQ Chips, Roasted Beets, Fresh Fish Catch of The Day, Pork & Beans, and Buttermilk Fritters. The service pace was moderate -- not prompt. The dishes served were between warm and hot. Quality was good, though not remarkable. What struck us was Okra Grill up the street can generate soup and entree equally as good -- without the upscale ambience -- for 1/3rd the price. Our evening cost $103.19 for 2 with tax and 20% tip. If folks want this nature of food there are better places like Vickery's which will cost 70% the price. OR, go to Langdon's where the food is much better, the ambience is slightly nicer, and the prices are comparable. The Southerly is a nice old ladies tea room with ramped up prices. Not recommended.

Re: “DeSano Pizza Bakery

I shared a couple of pizzas with two friends recently and they were intersting artisan pizzas and the setting at the big tables was nice. I will go again - price was on higher side but all and all I found it to be a good experience.

Re: “Halls Chophouse

No, Linda. There is clearly an organized effort behind what you're doing. You do realize, don't you, that you post after every positive comment or any curious comment about your negative fixation on Halls?
After 2 seconds' worth of searching, I found this:
Halls Chophouse
434 King St., Charleston, SC 29403
8437270090
93 visitor photos
Ranked #1 of 695 restaurants in Charleston
4.5 of 5 stars 825 Reviews
Travellers' Choice award winner Travellers' Choice® 2013 Winner Restaurants

Heh. So out of nearly 700 Charleston restaurants reviewed on Trip Advisor, 825 people volunteered to mention it's the best restaurant in town.
You're really going to have to ramp up your efforts to smear Halls on a larger scale if you'd like to have any effect at all.

Re: “Halls Chophouse

Those are tourists sites and plenty of tourists have bought into Halls, no argument there. The vast majority of locals dissaprove of Hall's. That's why on a locals site you have a overwhelmingly negative opinion of Hall's. If those people went there more than once or twice or talked to locals who know the place and the family, they would obviously have a different opinion of the place. Plus, you are grossly exagerating that there are no negative reviews there, just not as many. Hall's has a well known negative reputation in Charleston, that's why so many locals avoid the place.

Re: “Halls Chophouse

It is hard to believe that any place could be this bad and survive so I looked at yelp and trip advisor and there is not one single negative review nor one negative comment about the family.

In fact the reviews are glowing. something's fishy here.

Re: “Red's Ice House

horrible place, food is sucks, service is slow. i was there yesterday to watch halloween contest. i do not f.. believe that winners had no costumes won. Judges eliminated really good costumes like everybody's favorite rednecks couple. i believe winners were friends with bar stuffs or judges. worst halloween contest ever ever ever. highly not recommended. place needs to shut down.
