Great Place… With one exception
I really enjoyed the Griffon. Food was good and the beer selection was great. However, one bartender almost ruined it. It’s a small guy with black hair kind of spiked. Lee or Lloyd (I think). Wore a flower on his shirt and was very rude! Anyway, the place is great, but avoid this guy if possible…
Quite possibly one of the coolest places I have ever been. with over 400 beers to choose from there is easily something for everyone. Either grab a beer from the cooler or toss one from off the shelf into the chiller and enjoy on premise or put a 6 pack together or grab a growler for the road. Live music on weekends, corn hole, and an all together great atmosphere. Rob, the owner, is one of the nicest people i have ever met. If you haven't been to house of brews be sure to make the trip soon.
On a serious note Montreaux is awesome.. My husband and I and my friends throroughly enjoy ourselves each and every time we go there..The staff is friendly and courteous and want to make sure your enjoying yourself ..Its not the prettiest place in the world..its not a downtown charleston bar..but its homey and down to earth and you cant beat the prices on drinks or entertainment....I have consistently enjoyed myself each and every time I go there...Montreaux You guys rock...Danielle R. xoxo
It seems only the old Summerville residents say this is a good place. I guess if you've never left Summerville in your whole life then maybe you would think this is a good restaurant. I know better. Staff is great for serving not so good food. Totally over priced for what it really is. Sooooooo far from upscale unless you live in a trailer park.
This club has been bought by a New Owner. They are in the process of fixing it up. They have a fun and Happy staff and would love for everyone to come and check them out.
Love the atmosphere and ambiance - sophisticated and elitist while still offering a totally chill environment. Music is awesome and love to sit back and enjoy a hookah on occasion. Easily my favorite hang out in all of Charleston. Torch knows how to do things right!
My wife and I have been about 3 times in the last year. Every time we have been there haven't been more than one or two at the bar and a few people eating. Not sure how they stay open. With that said the burgers were good and the beer okay. Would like to see a better selection of draft beer but all in all each time has been a good experience. I just wish they would clean and lighten the place up - it dosen't feel very clean. Could be that it has dark walls and furnishings.
This is the place to get great burgers and occasionally a beer. Every time I have gone my burgers have been great! The location is tucked away in a rundown shopping center, I drove past it 3 times before I actually found it. As far as the decor inside, its nothing great!! The decor is bland, bright lights in the dining area, fake flowers, cheap tablecloths, no pictures, no uniforms, and radio is always playing.
As far as the food goes, I don't care if I'm eating on a cheap tablecloth with fake flowers surrounding me, I'll eat there again and again. Now if I was going out for the night to grab some drinks with a few friends, I would go somewhere else.
Went for lunch. Music was way too loud and 80's pop music just isn't my thing to listen to by the "relaxing" water. Of course, the louder the music, the louder the restaurant as everyone has to speak up louder just to be heard. I would call the ambiance "early mess hall". Ordered Blackened Chicken Alfredo. Chicken wasn't blackened at all. Just chicken with some kind of "blackenish" spice festooned up on it. Salad came with a croissant (bit odd, but ok) that was "drizzled with honey". Why? Blue Cheese dressing was a color not of this earth and inexplicably sweet. I can't take enough Tums to kill the heartburn (not sure if from the food or the amazing amount of money I paid for the pleasure of dining there).
Torch is a great place to go for a good time. Great bartenders and waitresses. They make you feel welcome and their service is great. DJ MOO MOO was there the night we stopped in and he was terrific. Will definitely go back again with my friends. You meet some interesting people at Torch. You have got to stop in.
Always had a great time here, sure its a bit touristy, but living here, its nice to go out and do something fun like this place. Great ocean views, great Jerk chicken and they serve up a good solid breakfast too.
Only complaint would be that service while fair, is almost always very slow. The restaurant def runs on island time, but heck, with a view like that who cares.
Loved it! Was a great time, get their early though because the place fills up quick.
If you don't like oysters, the shrimp and fish are awesome as well.
Oysters are great, views are spectacular.
Wow - the gospel music during Sunday brunch was terrific today - a cappella, moving, and the best I've heard.
Clearly whomever is giving this place high ratings must be the owner or an employee. This place is terrible. Frankly the very worst service, food and management I have ever experienced. Your order will take forever to come out and when it does, don't expect it to be correct. I wish I had read reviews before going to Carolina Crust because I would have saved myself a lot of time and aggravation. Also, the owner will not hesitate to yell and cuss at customers- she was yelling at people at a table when we were in there. And she said negative things about Hanahan which I thought was very rude and offensive. We weren't even the objects of her rage but I would never ever go back to this place.
Is the music good rock/alternative music or that dance music trash that sucks?
This was the worst eating establishment I have ever experienced in the Charleston, SC area. The owner/management was the most unprofessional and rudest person I have ever come into contact with. Our office went to lunch to celebrate a birthday and she made it a horrible day for all of us. We waited almost 2 hours to be served and half of our party still did not receive their orders before we left, other orders were wrong, and the food was not all that great. She refused to cancel their orders and took her time giving the rest of us our checks so that we could return to work. After some very rude and belligerent comments, which included cuss words, from the owner/management, we paid our tabs and left without having to call the police to help us out. I would not recommend this place to anyone that wants a positive experience. The owner is a horrible young lady who has a very bad attitude!!
I currently work in the #2 rated nightclub in the WORLD, "LIV" with is located inside the famed Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach, FL. And last years Platinum Ball rivaled ANY event the our club as produced. If you TRUELY want to have a great time on the east coast and can't make it to Miami for NYE, I HIGHLY recommend you purchase your ticket now for this event before you're left outside in the Charleston cold on 12/31/2011 wishing you had taked this advice from a Miami party professional.
I went last year and the event was amazing. I bought a vip room and from what i remember it had everything we asked for plus some food which was great. I highly recommend going this year as I have already bought two passes for it! Good luck getting tickets, I know they usually sell out quick!
City Paper needs to re-review the Acme - now that it has an expanded menu (way beyond Mexican- lots more seafood options grilled and with your choice of finishing options like basil aoli, lemon beurre blanc), phenom specials ($19.99 Lobster Night on Thurs - 3 split tails & two sides!) and a new name - Acme Lowcountry Cantina.
Best NYE Event in Charleston! Can't wait for the Platinum Ball 2012!!!!
