Sometimes overly crowded. Doesn't stop me from going. Can't beat the champaign list.
I'm usually a downtown guy, but I live in Summerville. I've always been skeptical of going to bars in my own area but I decided to give Montreax a try this past Friday night. I was surprised about how normal and young the clientele was, similar to being at a bar downtown. Had a few drinks which weren't expensive at all and had a great time with my friends. Definitely checking it out again.
Horrible service. Almost 1.5 hours for dinner. Every time is a long wait. Wish we had a better pub in West Ashley
Apparently this is the best kept secrect in Hanahan/North Charleston. From the road it looks like a dive bar/restaurant but inside it's not at all. A buddy of mine told me I should go in there on a Wednesday and try their steak special (10oz. for $8.95 with salad, french fries or baked potato). This may be the best deal going in town and the sorrounding area! You definitely won't be dissappointed and the waitstaff was great!
Drinks and ginger beer were yummy but a bit pricey. Didn't care for the food after it arrived, I was really excited because the burger was so fairly priced but when it came out it looked like I had just gone through the McDonalds drive thru. Was still hungry when we left.
I like the atmosphere. I like the menu & I like the prices.
On a recent visit, my wife & I were seated for dinner. The service was good and staff was attentive. Food was lacking unfortunately.
My wife had the tomato soup & a BLT. Soup was very 'acidy' and needed some sweetness to offset this, consistency wise...it reminded me of marinara sauce. BLT- bread was over-toasted to the point of being brittle and overall sandwich was very dry for lack of mayo....a lot of bread & lettuce but weak on bacon. Please, leave the 3rd slice of bread out of the picture unless you plan on doubling up on the bacon.
I had the patty melt. It was tasty but small. Considering this is 2 beef patties, it is hard to imagine this rates even 1/3 of a pound. It would be a better offering cut into quarters and served as an app for about $5. The fries were fresh & hot, but personally, I do not care for the 'shoestring' style. They taste more of fry grease than potato and there was an over abundance of the burned-up, little crispy fries, as if I got the last of the run.
2 meals, a soup, 2 draft beers, and one signature drink(which was great)...in over $50 including tip and still hungry. Might be better as a lunch venue. I am rating 2 stars based on the food...if you want to take in the drinks maybe a 3.
I really wish I lived closer to Castaway's because it is such a chill, spacious bar for happy hour or to grab a bite. They have the usual pub fare but fancy it up with pasta dishes and a pork chop entree. I always make sure to go once a month on the Tuesday when they have a stand up comedy night. I'm usually not a big fan of stand up, especially when I'm not familiar with the comedians because I hate when I have to force myself to awkwardly laugh, but I've been three times and they've never disappointed! It doesn't hurt that they have super cheap beer and a $2 vodka special. I'd highly recommend!!
Loved the comedy night. Great crowd, fun times and lots of variety!
My wife and I have been to this place 3 times in the last 6 weeks. The food was really good. The prices for downtown cannot be beat for the amount of food you get. The only problem we have had is with getting the waitress to refill the water glass. In the 3 visits we made they never refilled the glasses. I will continue to visit this restaurant for the food and hope I can get the waitress to step up the level of service.
Just a sad little hole in the wall... fighting is allowed even if its man on woman. Strip-mall hick bar. Zero rules.
It's sad that one bartender ruins moe's for me... The young one with light brown hair? So rude. She handed me a pbr without me ever ordering one and was so mean around 1 30... Of course I want to be out by last call but you don't need to be so rude about it. Terrible, I never want to go back. Too bad!
Wow! On Saturday night we had one of the best meals we've ever had in Charleston at Al Di La.
Wow. Al di la is hands down the best Italian food in Charleston. Great food, atmosphere, and staff. Highly recommend the pork and lamb dishes while you are there paired with something from their wine menu. SO GOOD. This restaurant will definitely be a repeat visit on my next trip to Charleston.
Back home is an awesome place for great food and drinks. very friendly staff and a good place to just let go!!! Im a former employee of the bar i quit about two months ago. I go back for drinks once in a while and will continue to go. please everyone help thisw bar continue to be one of the only good places in WEST ASHLEY TO HAVE FUN @. cheese curds are awesome but i hated making them. Good luck guys. GO G-MEN!!!!!
Great local spot with amazing beer and wine selections.
I was shocked to find out how cool HoB was, especially since it was right down in Mt Pleasant. This place is a craft beer lovers heaven, wrapped up in a locals bar. First of all, if you are looking for a normal drinking establishment, you are in the wrong place. This is a house, converted into a bottle shop and bar. They have a nice list of rotating taps, along with two bedrooms full of bottles. Feel free to pick out any bottle you want, and they can have it chilled and served in a few minutes. Prices are fair, especially for Mt P. What really makes this place special is the atmosphere. The owner is the bartender, and you will not find a nicer guy. He cares about his customers and wants to personally meet every one of them (first name bases kind of thing). The house-like atmosphere really pushes you to meet and converse with strangers, as you sip on fine ales. The back and side yards are set up with fire barrels and seating, as well as a stage for live acts. With many positives, we must also discuss the negatives. My only main issue is the hours, which isn't the owner's fault. They close at 10pm, mainly due to the fact that they are in a residential area. I hear that one of the neighbors doesn't like them (for no good reason), and complains quite often. The early closing time can be a letdown if you are a late dinner kind of person looking for an after dinner beer. Despite the early closing, it is still an awesome place to hang out and enjoy some brews with friends.
CPH is my go to Mt P dinner spot on most weekends. The food is consistently good and the tap beer selection tends to be the best in town (in most cases). I have probably tried every burger on the menu, and they are all delicious. I usually order my burgers rare, and am never disappointed. This quality of beef was not meant to be ordered well done. So damn juicy! The lamb sliders are fantastic, but I found out they can also make you a Big Lamb (full sized lamb burger) which takes it to another level. The truffle fries are evil, with that perfect touch of salty truffle oil flavor and a light sprinkle of Parmesan. Lately, I have been ordering the Fish and Chips, as they seem to know how to do that dish better than most places around CHS. My only complaint is that the beer prices can occasionally be on the high side, but it doesn't deter me from ordering a few brews before and during dinner. If you love burgers and craft beer, CPH should be your new home.
Definitely think this event is overrated. We paid the $150 for each of us to be VIP, not to be confused with the VIP TABLE that was $1,000 for 6 people to have their own table. With the VIP ticket we were able to get a better liquor selection and access to the second floor. We were pretty excited for this event, but we were definitely let down. Last year we attending the Snyder Grand Ball right next store to the Hippodrome so I'm largely comparing my experience to the Aquarium's party.
-The imax area was very big and open which allowed for us to interact with friends without having to scream at each other while listening to a pretty good band
-The lines for drinks weren't very long, waited 5 minutes max for a drink
-Organization wasn't bad, waited about 10 minutes in line outside to get in. Pretty quick check in
-The VIP table members were taking seats from other tables and using end tables to sit on because there wasn't enough seating for the VIP table guests.
-The appetizers weren't very appetizing. I don't think warm deviled eggs go very well with whiskey. I was hoping for food a little more recognizable, not just slices of cucumber rolled up with some pinkish looking mayonnaise stuffed in it
-There weren't any tables or chairs to sit your drink on unless you went into the imax room in which case you can sit in those seats. But you're pretty much SOL for sitting down or having a table unless you get the VIP table
Next year we're just paying the $130 for the aquarium party where you get a much better selection of appetizers/food and seating available to everyone. I don't think the extra $40 was worth it for the VIP ticket. I'm not that picky with my alcohol and honestly, I would've been fine never stepping foot on the second floor. To me, it was an overpriced house party which we could've went to Red's for almost half of what we paid and got the same experience.
I moved away from the area but left most of my good friends here, great bar, great atmosphere!!!! The best people in town go here, can't wait to move back and enjoy it again! Pool Teams totally ROCK, many good players and competitive at City and National levels,,, the food out is out of this world!!!!!! Wait staff and owner outstanding,,, great bands rock the stage,,, what else can I say.....I LOVE THIS BAR!!
I had some friends in town in mid-July and I took them to Calder's on a Friday night. The bartender was drunk out of his mind. We ordered food from him and told him we'd be outside with our drinks and he said he'd let us know when our food came out. 30 minutes went by, I went in and after 10 minutes of me trying to get his attention and focus on what I was asking, he said it wasn't ready yet without actually checking with the kitchen. After 20 more minutes my friend went in and asked the bartender where the food was and his reply was "oh, the kitchen guys left a half an hour ago. Did you order food?" I went over the last hour in detail with him and he stared at me with eyes glazed over and said "sorry, how bout I buy you a beer?" I said no thanks, we're hungry so we're going to the grocery store to get food. I paid my check and the bartender said "next time you come in remind me a I'll buy you dinner."
No thanks dummy.There won't be a next time. Good luck with your hangover.
