This is a great store with a great selection and there are lots of gems among the $1 records. It's an area of King St. where there's always lots of parking so it's not a hassle to get to.
Your listing of prices for Tommy Emanual were a little low. Back of the balcony $145 each!
food is ok, the place is dirty. Reminds me of a pub night at a marginal fraternity. Really nothing to see here. And I'm born and bred in Philly.
tried them a couple of times. First, wife is from Philly, I lived there with her a couple of years, and the reason we went there the first time was because of that description. Ain't even close. And the wings? Dipped in bottled sauce and way undercooked ( I'm talking red and raw at the bone) the first time, overcooked the second. We used to live about 4 blocks from the joint, but after the second try we never went back.
great place to eat and hangout a true phila bar
When was the last time the health department stepped inside this place...possibly sometime during the Nixon administration?
We went to Trayce's on Saturday Night (19 Sep 2015) to listen to some Jazz and Funk by Louie D Project. The staff is excellent as well as the other customers. Louie D did not disappoint and we had a great evening.
Thanks for making our first visit to Trayce's a fantastic and memorable time. It felt like we had spent the evening with old friends.
P.S. - Order the nachos, you will not be disappointed nor will you leave hungry.
No real review but was wondering if this is the restaurant owned and or managed by Sharon Doughty (don't know Sharon's married name)?
Thank you so much.

I love this place. Never had a problem with services. Whenever I have people from out of town visit I always take them here for the duck club.
"I humbly ask the ownership to take note of these trends in comments. I just hope they get this bit corrected."
Seeing as how you copied and pasted this exact same post from 2 years ago, I'd say you have your answer. They're too cool to give a shit about customer service. And after 10 pm they're too wasted to give a shit.
After reading a couple of the bad reviews above, I wanted to come charging in here to the defense of this great place. The food is awesome, the beer selection is good (and always cold) and the crowd is a good mixture of what Charleston is...
That being said, I have to say that they are unfortunately spot on when it comes to reviews of the service and general attitude of the staff. At times it seems as if the hipster style of just being too cool to care bleeds from the atmosphere (where it's okay) to the service (where it's not.)
I go here often and will continue to do so. I humbly ask the ownership to take note of these trends in comments. It can't be all of them have a grudge or caught you on a bad day.
The only thing, in my opinion, anyone could say negatively about this place is the apparent apathy in customer service.
As I said, I will go back and I will continue to recommend it to family and friends. I just hope they get this bit corrected.
"The entire side wall is an open garage door to the outside bar and I expect bugs and heat inside during hot days. It seems a very odd design."
Bugs, heat, and cigarette smoke. No thanks, and thanks for the warning so I won't waste time and fuel going there.
Just back from the new Johns Island location. The food was tasty but the menu seems limited. The food is served in baskets which I find to be a pita. I got the cheesburger which came back quite charred and very well done. I tried to cut it in half and it fell to pieces. $8.50 + $1.50 for cheese gets you a burger like the one at Smokey Oaks for $5. No sides are included and the smallest fries are $2.50.
The walls are covered in stuffed animals which I'm not into and they crank classic rock even during lunch. I could see cranking at 8pm but really at 11:30 am? It just makes me want to hurry and not relax. The entire side wall is an open garage door to the outside bar and I expect bugs and heat inside during hot days. It seems a very odd design.
The tables are way too close putting everyone on top of each other. Overall, I'm not excited.
Extra points for having a sweet pinball machine.
I've only had breakfast here, but it was almost as good as waffle house and just 3 times more expensive
Mgmt. is horrible, the order was messed up and after repeatedly calling and reaching the answering machine she agreed to compensate for their mistake. We did not pick up their replacement. (Too late and too much inconvenience). When I called the next day, to explain what had happened, the manager raged and hung up on me. Way to treat your customers!
I can't wait until the one on Johns Island is open. I work like 1 mile from there. I know they had some construction issues, but they have to be close now.
i have been going here since they opened. i LOVE it! the service is always friendly and it is my favorite local hang out and they always have great music playing.
is it cleaned up?
Sushi ninja IS NOT AT OAK at tonight. She's been in n char on fridays for awhile.
The food in this place rocks! I was afraid to go to this place because of what I saw online. But my best friend kept saying that I needed to go. So I went and WOW! Crazy! Food was great and inexpensive and the atmosphere was terrific.
So, being the jerk that I am, I'd asked, why did they get so many bad reviews and then they pointed to me to all of the other sites that they were doing well on. I showed them the review about the Groupon and they said that in this business, you can only try to please everyone. Not everyone can be satisfied. Further, they noted that they are under new management and that they took over the business in 2013.
Lesson learned: Most people that enjoy a location would never take the time to write a good review... it is only those that have a bad experience that go out of their way to note it. So... I am going out of my way to write a review of my experience last night!
