Re: “Castaways Grille

I am so sick and tired of bars misspelling Guinness.... in their ad in CP they left off an N in Guinness.... why celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in a bar that can't correctly spell one of the most recognized beers in the world? To Castaways Grille I say Pogue Mahone!!!!!!

Re: “Seanachai Social Club

What a great local! So happy that there is a place on Johns Island to enjoy an after-work beer in a friendly pub. Bartender and owner Gerry is a gem, treats his customers as friends, and is a craftsman with the cocktails, too. Hard to drive past it on your way home without stopping for a pint!

Re: “Joe Pasta

Things wrong from my visit last summer (and only visit).
1. Wait staff took over 10 minutes to say hello to the table (We, a 4 top, were 1 of 4 tables so they weren't weeded)
2. So much dust and crud on the walls that it was NASTY to look at.
3. Lack of management intervention during a scuffle between two employees. Curse words flew rampant out of one guys mouth involved in the scuffle.
4. Wait staff (all four servers), hostess and bartender stayed by the bar and talked the whole time. Drinks stayed empty and the cook had to walk the food out due to our "server" chatting at the bar.
5. Management promised gift certificates mailed due to our horrible experience to make up for the scuffled witnessed but they never came.
6. Food was marginal at best.
7. The best part was the cook who walked our food out and checked on us 2x due to our waiter loving to chat with other workers.

I've run a restaurant and I never would have allowed this lack of service to take place. I will never go there again and when friends ask, I am very honest about my experience there.

Re: “Seanachai Social Club

Seanachai is a great little pub on Johns Island. Great staff with nice craft beers and Irish whiskey selection, with good live music every week.

Re: “Parson Jack's Café

...Very friendly atmosphere...great chicken tenders...good sweet tea...Chris Tidestrom does an excellent job on Thursday nights, at the open mic event, and the open mic scene will certainly grow rapidly as the summer season comes upon us. I have found the staff to be totally honest and polite...sometimes, maybe some people are served based upon their attitudes...and what they deserve...so Karma serves it up...

Re: “A.C.'s Bar and Grill

Sometimes overly crowded. Doesn't stop me from going. Can't beat the champaign list.

Re: “Montreux Bar and Grill

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.

Re: “Parson Jack's Café

Horrible service. Almost 1.5 hours for dinner. Every time is a long wait. Wish we had a better pub in West Ashley

Re: “Hanahan's Neighborhood Pub

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!

Re: “The Rarebit

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.

Re: “The Rarebit

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.

Re: “Castaways Grille

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!!

Re: “The Rarebit

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.

Re: “O'Brion's Pub & Grille

Just a sad little hole in the wall... fighting is allowed even if its man on woman. Strip-mall hick bar. Zero rules.

Re: “Moe's Crosstown Tavern

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!

Re: “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.
