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
I miss this place, use to be one of my favorite for soul food.
Amazing views. I've only been once and had the shrimp and grits, but will definitely be back.
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.

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!
Awesome German Burgers
The BEST mussels anywhere on the peninsula!
Great mussels mariniere. French fries are like crack. Good service. Can be very noisy on weekends, but so many restaurants are. Quiet ones are ones without people. What does that say?
I don't get it. Why the complaints? This is not a fine dining place. It is a wonderful classic French dinner bistro; The kind I like to drop into in Paris. We are regulars, usually eating a salad frisee with goat cheese and Moules Frites. They also are known for their Suchi (a bit of a surprise). It can get noisy around end of work, hookup time and the service can be terrible on any of the holidays due to over demand and decreased staff, but it hasn't stopped me from going. If you want elegant and pretty food, go elsewhere and pay considerably more. Here time it well and eat well.
Four of us went after a Spoleto event. Talking to those across the table turned into a shouting contest due to the noise. We will not go back for a later meal.
Have been several times for lunch and the decibel level was nowhere near as bad.
Rue de Jean is a Charleston classic that never disappoints. Downtown is so saturated with new and amazing restaurants that it’s easy to forget the ones who have been a fixture for such a long time. We were endlessly debating on which new restaurant to visit when we decided to pick a place we haven’t been in years. Rue fit that description.
Each of our courses came out tasting better than the last. The escargot, while straightforward, was delightful. The steak Roquefort was cooked to perfection, and the scallops were massive with perfect texture. The rich cream both served with the scallops was out of this world. Our server was a true professional, and the wine recommendations were spot on.
What is the point of this review? It is to remind those of us who have lived downtown for years to not forget the classics. There are so many new restaurants that have opened recently and it’s easy to fall into the hype trap while overlooking the establishments that have been producing a consistent and quality product for a long time.
Had a great time nice staff beautiful ladies love the drinks i seriously recommend it.
Sushi ninja IS NOT AT OAK at tonight. She's been in n char on fridays for awhile.
The only place in Charleston that serves real fried chicken.
Great staff, good food, good drinks. Music is not too loud, tv spacing good too. Wifi seems to be hit or miss though, depending where you're sitting. My boyfriend and I LOVE coming here. Shoutout to Jake!
Plasticbags needs a hobby
"Must have WENT"???? How about "must have GONE". Jeez.....
I had the occasion to visit the area for the first time today. I asked around about a good place to eat lunch near the water and was told about Vickery's. But I'm sorry to say that I was not thrilled. First of all, the hostess never said a word when I walked in. She just gave me a weird look. I had to do the speaking. That should be a huge no-no. Part of her job should be greeting customers with a smile. She, honestly, was pretty unfriendly. I chose lemonade for a beverage and it was okay but tasted flat. The slaw I had was unedible. It was bitter and tasted terrible. I'm not sure if it was bad or not but I wasn't going to take a chance. I chose the fried shrimp and they were good but I was surprised at how tiny they were. The fries were lukewarm and wimpy. All in all, I spent $23 for a lunch that, in my opinion, was of far less quality than Red Lobster. I was pretty disappointed.
You must have went on a bad night. The service is normally great and the staff are very hospitable. They have awesome rock n roll bands during the week.
