Re: “Tommy Condon's Irish Pub & Seafood Restaurant

I've been to Condon's on a number of occasions, and find the food adequate, but certainly not Irish. The best thing about the place is the draft beer selection. Although expensive, it allows one an opportunity to sample beers from all over the world. The music at night is entertaining and peppy, but Condon's is definitely set up for the occasional tourist visit. It appears to be doing well in that regard.

Re: “Tommy Condon's Irish Pub & Seafood Restaurant

Apparently the food is only good on weekends. We went last Monday and I had to send my steak back because it was nothing but fat. My husband's shrimp and grits were gritty. There was trash and flies in the windowsill while the waitstaff stood around and talked. Not to mention the table was sticky. Very dissatisfied.

Re: “Cha Cha's Mexican Grill

I'm giving it three stars only because I know it can be more consistent. I know they had a rough start and I was hearing some really bad things about the food, but the last three times I've been in it's been really spot on good.
I think they had some serious kinks to work out, but as far as somewhere new, affordable and good to go on James Island, I've been loving it at Cha Cha's.
I mean: Pork Belly taco with roasted bananas and crunchy peanut butter!!
I like non traditional approaches to food and they are making some really interesting and good combinations.

Re: “Cha Cha's Mexican Grill

, I'm giving it 4 stars based on my experience. The happy hour is excellent: plentiful free pool tables and $1 Tecates (and when those ran out, they upgraded to a Costa Rican beer called Imperial.) The food is very good, especially for a place that identifies itself as a sports bar. We enjoyed the homemade tortilla chips and salsa and had no trouble getting to an open pool table at 5 pm. It appears as though renovations may not be complete yet...but the Mexican Day of the Dead murals that adorn the walls help set a fun vibe, as do the hand-painted, glowing skulls on the bar. We really enjoyed our appetizer sampler--the surprise hit for me being the fried pita bread. The Bacon-wrapped jalapenos were quite tasty too. My wife, who used to tend bar at a Latin bar, was blown away by her first rocks margarita, but had to ask them to remake the 2nd one...meaning it depends on who makes it. (Nicolette made the best one.)

The most important thing we noticed is that we could truly feel that everyone there is trying very hard to make this something good. Dollar beers and good food will get me in the door once. The attitude and effort being put forth have already brought me back for repeat trips.

Re: “Cha Cha's Mexican Grill

My hubby and I went to check the place out for the first time tonight, and I gave it 3 stars bc I did like the atmosphere. We thought the chips and salsa were yummy, as the salsa was good and spicy with some kind of fruit in it? Good stuff! The frozen screw driver tasted was not too good, and I thought my margarita wasn't too good. My husband's lamb taco was really good! My fish taco was fishy though ugh, so that was disappointing. We live on Ji, so appreciate the JI vibe, but for food sorry but we both agreed we'd stick to Zia. The place is new though, so hopefully the food will get better! Overall cool joint to hang out!

Re: “Cha Cha's Mexican Grill

Tried it out for the first time this week. Was very impressed with set-up, HH deals, and the tacos were great. Free pool, $1 Tecate, $2 tall boy PBR during HH (4-7pm). My two tacos were a lamb chorizo sausage wrapped in bacon with crispy onions and a spicy sauce, and a tempura baja fish with fresh red cabbage and cilantro n onions. Both huge, both super-tastey, 2 for $7. What's not to like there?

I'm sure some hyper-critical foodie D-bags will have something to say about this place (they always do...) To them I say tuck your Brooks Bro. shirt in, go eat at husk for the 3rd time this week en route to IOP for your beach day. This place is chill, friendly, good F&B at great price points. Should fit in nicely with the JI and FB crowds.

Well Done!

Re: “Buffalo Wild Wings

The wings and boneless wings are really good. Go to the bar not the bar area, children running through the isles constantly with no parental control. Its more of a FAMILY RESTARAUNT then a so called sports bar. If want to hear children while your trying to watch your favorite team play then you might as well stay home.

Re: “Charleston Beer Works

Went to CBW to watch NCAA tourney... had a burger and FF. It was awesome, hand ground burgers and hand-cut french fries. Huge selection of beers and a bunch of Holy City drafts. I am honestly impressed. One of the patrons told me that the cheese steaks were extremely good. I know what I will be having next time... Keep up the good work

Re: “Bighorn's Sports Grill

Rivers Ave near the mall is not in the heart of Berkeley county. It's close to Goose Creek but that's Charleston county. Just sayin...

Re: “Bighorn's Sports Grill

This is an awesome place to see bands - big stage, awesome sound and you can eat great food - wings, killer burgers, steaks - all night long. If you don't need to be by the beach, its a much better venue than the Windjammer plus its in the heart of Berkeley County! Going to see Diamondback this weekend!

Re: “Abe's Oyster House

Art & Bob could never get it going.

It's a sad place and the food and ambience relects Bob's personality = bland and uninteresting ........ at best.

Re: “Madra Rua

For those of us who have lived in Summerville for a while and have dealt with the loud, crowded, sometimes obnoxious watering holes that have passed and, unfortunately for some, stuck around (ie. chain restaurants/sports bars where Summerville's finest men gulp their Bud Light draft while sifting through the endless amounts of mini’s and only the classiest of ladies in said mini’s try to pick through the selection of beef in too tight shirts to score a free drink), this Park Circle-originated gem is a more than welcome change of venue for us “simple folk” who just like to drink a good pint and relax amongst friends (and actually be able to hear the conversation). The food is excellent, varying between your normal bar fare to Irish dishes to fully packed lunch specials. Sunday brunch is always a treat with a wonderful series of takes on Eggs Benedict while sipping on a mimosa or “Man-mosa”. The staff is nothing but cordial, offering an atmosphere of “home away from home away from work”. So, whether you’re there to eat with family and friends, have some laughs over your favorite stout, pale ale, or mixture of the two, or just sit at the bar watching the game with Jason (and occasionally Spence), Madra Rua BC is sure to satisfy your palate. And if not, well, Buffalo Wild Wings is about five minutes away, always ready to have you stand and hope that no one knocks into you and spills your beer in a weak attempt to touch your ass.

Re: “Matty's Sports Grille

Horrible sports bar!!! Went to watch the Carolina Panthers game today and was told that all the TVs were spoken for. Could understand if we were not in the Carolinas or if the same game was not on multiple TVs.

If you are going to call yourself a sports bar, play the games that your patrons want to watch.

HORRIBLE!!!!

Re: “Madra Rua

Just came back from a visit to the local pub Madra Rua. Had the prime rib sandwich and and some strongbow ciders. Pretty tasty (especially with the hand cut fries (mine with vinegar)). Wife had the corn beef and cabbage that she said was good but not a wow. Atmosphere is great, people are great. Typical pub food. Will definitely go back. (I've got many more beverages to try!)

Re: “Art's Bar & Grill

I've eaten there and it's honestly good and the best evening is when any night "Baby Fat" is rocking the joint. They are excellent musicians.
