Didn't go to fair this year....to old and to slow..to much walking, and well anyway...
It's the Fair, what to you expect? Charleston debutants in their best? People watching is one of the best parts of going to the Fair. We went to the fair last night and had a blast. Got there at 5 after a 20 minute ride from downtown. Did some kids rides with our 1 year old son, had obligatory fair food (gyro, chicken on a stick, and a fried candy bar), did a few adult rides, left and back downtown by 8.
Agreed. It's 2011, and the fair still lets morons walk around blowing cigarette smoke at people.
Wise up, exchange club, make designated smoking areas and the rest smoke free.
Especially the amphitheater, where people are packed in to see the bands.
Designated smoking areas will only slightly inconvenience a few and greatly improve the fair experience for many.
I was there for the Badd Kitty Lingerie Masquerade.. and had a blast! two very enthusiastic thumbs up... Fred Krugrr was a bad ass D.J., Jimbo was bartending himself, and there was just a lot really cool, fun people.. for a change, in west ashley anyway; usually not my fav scene or people out there. but i'm glad i went, it was ALL REALLY GOOD TIMES:)
The food here is GREAT! Wonderful selection and perfectly-sized portions. I live nearby and I don't eat there often enough! I normally sit at the bar and the bartenders are always friendly and talkative - quick to make a suggestion, depending on what you're in the mood for. Great wine list. The atmosphere is very nice, but still comfortable if you're having a casual night. Highly recommended!
[And for "Chef Lisa" who gave this place such a terrible review: If you were REALLY a chef, you would know there is no such word as "eatable." The word you were looking for is "edible." Your welcome.]
this place is in a bad location safety-wise.
IS IT A COMPLIMENT TO CALL IT, "B.T.N."? (BETTER THAN NOTHING)...LOL.UGG.
I agree tenfold that Phinz fan is 100% on the money... I know that in the service industry working at a bar pub you probably deal with a lot of attitudes, but you could not have said it better!
If I could give Gene's negative stars I would.
A shame, because Gene's has a great beer selection and board games at every table is a neat concept. However, the entire staff is nothing but arrogant pretentious hipster losers that act like they are doing you a favor by giving you crappy service. I've had one or more of them be extremely rude to me and my friends almost every visit. I've had friendlier service at Dick's Last Resort. Not kidding.
The food is also very uninteresting. Honestly, there is really no reason to go there except for the large beer selection. If Gene's fired all of their employees and started over then I might consider giving it another shot. Until then I will be at Roost!
This will be a great show! Seen her on stage with Clay Aiken for the past 8 years and she is fabulous. Wish I was in town to go the show.
I like the new chef and management. It's much better these days.
I have never, ever had a bad meal here, and I eat here semi-frequently. I have always experienced the friendliest service here - is it slow at times - sure, but this place gets busy, so be patient. I would say come here for lunch or dinner because that is their specialty. The steak and seafood dishes are fantastic. Brunch is not bad but I think they're still getting their groove for brunch. Honestly - dinner here is where it's at. Steak tips with mushrooms is to die for - and no, I don't work at Queen Anne's - nor do I personally know anyone who does. With French and Italian parents, I know good food and Queen Anne's has it.
I would give it 0 stars if i could. Never in my life have I had cold, burned, soggy french toast. The waitress was horrible. I would sooner eat at a McDonalds before returning.
great looking bar and patio, had some awesome wings and bugers there saturday watching football
The Blind Tiger staff has made the impression that whatever tip I may give them will never be enough for them to put down the smartphone and do their job. At a $1 a drink, I'll tip someone else somewhere else.
I love Sunday Brunch. It is my favorite meal. I literally look forward to it every week. I have tried tons of brunch places in town. For the longest time Moe's was my hands down favorite (RIP). Triangle was my favorite party brunch place (the food...meh) and had great service.
Red Drum...surpasses them all. The food is fantastic and includes all the choices you would want from traditional to southern to unique (for Charleston). The bartender is always on top of your drink, and they have the most generous mimosas around. I also really like that the guys get their in a pint glass so they can still feel manly.
Get the fork and knife tacos...mmmmm.
If you haven't tried it for brunch - you are missing out.
Have a drink, enjoy the courtyard, skip the food.
I love Montreux, and drive from Mt. Pleasant just to go there. Been going for 2 years, and the staff is friendly and the food is better than any other bar I can think of. The bartenders are awesome! Always something new to try. If you have a problem with the staff or bouncers, it's because you started a problem first.... Great bands and standing room only most weekends. Go see it for yourself, you wont be disappointed.
Although I haven't been recently, I know from friends that the Icehouse has always stayed true to form with great drinks, great service, and great people. I look forward to going up there soon to try their brunch, which my best friend Carroll raves about. See ya then, Woody! --Nina
This is the best bar in Summerville. Hands down. Usually people that complain about watered down drinks are the same people that never tip. Nothing's ever good enough. You are a sad breed of human. If you can't tip, stay home. If you don't like Montreux, no one asked you to go there anyway. There are plenty of loyal patrons that will continue to frequent this place because they are good people and serve quality food along with a great selection of beers and liquors. If you have a problem with any of the security there, it's because you're probably a drunk idiot. And I like to see you call them that to their faces.
