Re: “Charleston Beer Exchange

Ok, ok. After discussions with many about my review, maybe i overreacted. maybe i was the one having the bad day and i did the same thing that i myself complained about and took it out on an undeserving party. I am giving 4 stars to even out to a 2.5 star rating. Jerks was probably a little too strong and it's really only one person who has rubbed me the wrong way so it's not fair to group the entire store in that light. I will maintain that the level of service i have recieved on many occasions was disheartening. I will maintain that their selection is incredible. And let's be serious, I will still go to some of those beer dinners because the quality, menu, and value is exceptional. Also, i wish i had an alias on citypaper website and not my name...haha

Re: “Charleston Beer Exchange

Josh, are you serious? Please click these links and realize you're talking crazy talk, because ratings like this from visitors all over the country don't happen when people act like you're alleging they do. I've been going there for 3 years and have been treated excellently throughout my patronage, despite me being a relative beer newbie when I started shopping there. I have literally never, ever heard anyone with an opinion of CBX like yours. I'm very confused.

Hopturn - they have and do carry Holy City, just must not have been on tap when you visited?

Re: “Charleston Beer Exchange

Great selection but the guys that work there are jerks. if you're not in the beer industry they talk down to you like you're 18 with a fake id looking to get some old styles on the cheap. i refuse to participate in any event put on by these guys becuase of their attitude (besides brewvival). Good thing they're no longer the only game in town for rare beer

Re: “Charleston Beer Exchange

whatever dude. i love charleston beer exchange. the guys that work there are knowledgeable and friendly...extremely so. they will drop whatever they are doing to answer questions, and their draft beer growlers are a great value. only complaint is that they should already be carrying Holy City!

Re: “Queen Street Grocery & Café

I have been frequenting this place for about 2 years now and I just read the below review and could not believe my eyes! I think this place has totally changed for the better! The new owners Holly & Tom have always been friendly, they have a much larger selection of groceries and food. I am so thankful for the addition of the breakfast menu, its a daily stop for me! As for quality, everything I have ever eaten from this place has been so good!keep up the good work!

Re: “Queen Street Grocery & Café

I agree. This place blows now. Plenty of other locals spots around, don't waste your money.

Re: “Queen Street Grocery & Café

This place really isn't the same anymore. I guess the old owners sold it and now it's just gone down hill with the new owners. My wife and I used to love going there for the crepes and sandwiches and relaxed atmosphere but the last few times we've been the new owners we're unfriendly, like they couldn't be bothered with us, and the food wasn't what it used to be. The prices had gone up considerably and the portions are much smaller. The sauce used for the my wife's Tenacious Turkey tasted like plain sour cream not the basil and honey dijon like it used to have and the amount of meats and cheeses in our food was far less than we were used to. Not to mention we paid $9 for a sandwich smaller than my palm and that was just for the sandwich. We were very disappointed, this place used to be a great hidden gem and now it's more like a cold tourist trap.

Re: “Bull Street Gourmet

This place is great. Service can be slow on a Saturday or Sunday morning when the staff may have been out a little late the night before, but the food is outstanding!

I heard a rumor that a 2nd Downtown location was in the works. Any truth to this??

Re: “Factor 5

Went to the one on Rivers for the 2nd time, the same guy was working and completely rude. He said I needed to wait 3 wks before changing my nose piercing, wouldn't even look at it the first time, so I went back 3 weeks later. The guy immediately screamed "no kids allowed" when I walked in with my 2 year old. Since I am a single mom, I guess I am suppose to hire a babysitter for 10 minutes while I have my nose stud changed out. They were having roofing problems, so he couldn't do any piercings and when I went to point at my nose he screamed, "do not touch your jewelry. See the sign" Completely disgusted - went up the road to Exotic Impressions and they were awesome. Took care of my nose, extremely helpful, and very friendly to my son.

Re: “Bull Street Gourmet

Bull Street Gourmet, eh? More like Bull Sh%* Gourmet. Sad to say this place has really declined in credibility. Recently ordered a bagel sandwich and was given a BLACK bagel. Completely burnt. The staff is so rude, also clearly they do not pay attention to what they are serving.
In addition, they advertise that they use H&H Bagels. H&H Bagels are New York bagels. When I ordered a bagel, I watched the clerk grab my bagel from a Kirkland / CostCo bag.
Not only do they serve you burnt food, but they lie about where the food comes from.
Get it together, B.S.G. Bring back what used to be good.

Re: “Soundwave Records & Comics

By far the worst comic store I've ever been in. Service is terrible and the owner is a crook.

Re: “PetSmart

A review of Petsmart? Haha. Get your dog food and pooper scooper and be on your way. What kind of assistance did you need? The dogs are the things that bark and the birds are the things with wings. Hope that helps!

Re: “PetSmart

Really? No one even said hello or offered to assist me when I went in. I quickly decided I'd rather support a local full line store than this soul-less corporate monstrosity.

Re: “The Olive Oil Shop

Would love to visit this shop...the next time I am in SC! I import Tutti Amici cold pressed, extra virgin olive oil (slightly filtered)...sounds like it might be just the new product needed in your shop!!!

Re: “Broadway Performing Arts Studios

Beware of this dance studio. Check their policy about withdrawing. You are committed to pay for the complete semester even if you are not satisfied or find the schedule is not working out for your family. My daughter has danced for 5 years and in the 10 weeks she attended, she did not come close to practising at the level she was at. It is more like play time than a real dance class. Take caution before enrolling at this dance studio!
