I agree with the previous commenter about the prepaid cards. For such a vast selection of beer, why am I only limited to 13 options when there is probably 100 other drinks they can make behind the bar. If I’m going to pay you $40 without having a single drink, I’d appreciate you giving me a heads up next time.
Best Gullah food around. All the rice dishes are great, especially the gullah rice. Fried chicken almost as good as my mommas.
How can you review a place if you didn't eat there, didn't mention the beer/cocktails and your only criticism is that you can't use the prepaid car at the bar?
Get a life.
I used to frequent the Boat House in this location and have been to Bay Street one time. I chose a Thursday night that was roughly 2 weeks after opening. It was to capacity at 930p, one in, one out. The inside is very nice, they did a great job with the existing space and built an amazing outdoor patio. I didn't get a chance to order any food this time so i can't speak to that.
I think the pre-paid cards/tap-wall is a novelty that will soon fade. The deal-breaker for me is the fact that I cannot use my prepaid card at the bar. I intend to go back for a food sampling.
Bear Down! In town for business, this Chicago style sports bar is a must see!
Wonderful space for an event. Went to a Guerrilla Cuisine dinner there a couple of weeks ago and was surprised at how pretty the distillery hardware looks with the right lighting and how warm and comfortable the space was - especially for a warehouse and work site, at that (the bathrooms are a literally shining example). A few strategically placed pieces of art (big works well) and beautifully set tables were all that was needed to transform what would be a cavernous area in the back into a really cool, even elegant, venue. I know others worked hard to make that transformation and I WAS under the influence of some fabulous food, but the end result of GC & others' efforts highlighted the possibilities of the distillery space itself. The Striped Pig people proved very hospitable folks, dedicated to their craft and eager to share the process & results with willing fans. Sampled some powerful but oddly delicious moonshine & a more finished product. It is obvious that a great deal of thought went into making this space a welcoming place to hang out, whether for an event or just a visit.
Oh Dear lord
It' quite interesting how at midnight on November 6th your "hottest bartender" was down 300 votes yet still seemed to win. Good to know the winner of Charleston's hottest bartender is predetermined.
Not worth the money, won't be back.
Just want to say diamonds management was rude to me and my friends went in the middle of the week the place was dead as a door nail. The dancers were boring as hell we decided to make the best of it we were dancing and laughing having fun. The 2 guys even paid for a lap dance. The other friends were female the manager told us we had to leave because we were dancing and we needed to have a license to dance to the music. I ask you what kind of crap is that. Well my friend was better looking and sexier then any stripper in the place. They got are money then kicked us oit . do not ever go to diamonds the manager would not even speak to us my friend tried apologizing for dancing to the music he was a creep. The place is a dump with rooms in the back where they do god knows what. There thieves they made sure we spent a bunch of money then kicked us out for dancing. Idiots the place is disqusting.I. hope they get closed down most likely they will go out of business first oH yeah every single girl had cellulite up the ass.
No, Linda. There is clearly an organized effort behind what you're doing. You do realize, don't you, that you post after every positive comment or any curious comment about your negative fixation on Halls?
After 2 seconds' worth of searching, I found this:
434 King St., Charleston, SC 29403
93 visitor photos
Ranked #1 of 695 restaurants in Charleston
4.5 of 5 stars 825 Reviews
Travellers' Choice award winner Travellers' Choice® 2013 Winner Restaurants
Heh. So out of nearly 700 Charleston restaurants reviewed on Trip Advisor, 825 people volunteered to mention it's the best restaurant in town.
You're really going to have to ramp up your efforts to smear Halls on a larger scale if you'd like to have any effect at all.
Those are tourists sites and plenty of tourists have bought into Halls, no argument there. The vast majority of locals dissaprove of Hall's. That's why on a locals site you have a overwhelmingly negative opinion of Hall's. If those people went there more than once or twice or talked to locals who know the place and the family, they would obviously have a different opinion of the place. Plus, you are grossly exagerating that there are no negative reviews there, just not as many. Hall's has a well known negative reputation in Charleston, that's why so many locals avoid the place.
It is hard to believe that any place could be this bad and survive so I looked at yelp and trip advisor and there is not one single negative review nor one negative comment about the family.
In fact the reviews are glowing. something's fishy here.
horrible place, food is sucks, service is slow. i was there yesterday to watch halloween contest. i do not f.. believe that winners had no costumes won. Judges eliminated really good costumes like everybody's favorite rednecks couple. i believe winners were friends with bar stuffs or judges. worst halloween contest ever ever ever. highly not recommended. place needs to shut down.
Notice everytime there is a poor review by a real person on here, a Hall or a member of their staff will pop up with a magical 5 star review, look at the pattern. Just look at the top comments about Hall's and the number of people who agree with the comment (like it) to know who is running the fake campaign here. And that would be you.
Tried to enjoy an evening out at my first visit to Pierpont Pub on Hwy.61,
but when I arrived there, a brawl was taking place just outside
their front entrance and I had driven all the way
from Adams Run to get there as I had heard that
a really god Band "THE HOWLIN' PACK" was playing there that night.
I used to would have just overlooked all that kind of mayhem in
my younger days, but not anymore...what with all the goings ons these days.......
Maybe I'll try it again 'cause I see the Howlin' Pack is scheduled to play
there again this year....I believe in November 2013..!!..!!....and a friend
told me that the food there is quite good.
Seems like someone in town has organized a campaign to attack Hall's on this board, (Charleston is still a very small town-not surprised at this). I've been there four times and found both the service and the food to be excellent. Special requests were handled were handled with alacrity. Found the family members to be very nice. Would definitely go again.
This mall has the only IMAX in the Charleston area. It also has the largest Belk & Dillard's locations in Charleston. Centrally located, easily accessible and convenient to all areas of Charleston.
The Shelter Kitchen and Bar is definitely not what I was expecting when I walked into it. As another bar on Shem Creek I was expecting fried seafood and all the other standard foods, but I was wrong. Their appetizers (which are half off on happy our or on Monday nights after 9 for food and bev night) are fantastic. The fried pickles and okra was amazing with the in house made chipotle ranch, and so were the Low country Rolls! (basically a spring roll for southerners, collards, pulled pork, and mustard based BBQ sauce). Even just the basket of fries I've had there before was great, it comes with a really fantastic garlic aioli.
The burgers are huge and superb. About 7 different choices for toppings, and you can opt out of a burger for a chicken breast, fried chicken breast, veggie burger (which is great) and even a Portabella mushroom. I've only had my burger cooked incorrectly once, and it was underdone so I sent it back and they actually recooked an entire burger instead of heating up my underdone burger. I was very impressed with the time it took to get food to the table, (as well as drinks) and the reaction time of managers to get out to the table to make sure problems are taken care of in a proper way.
Drinks do take a little while. But if you look at the bar on any given night, they may seem understaffed at some points. If you order your drink when you're 2/3rds done you will never wait on a drink. If you wait until you're done and then have to wait for your server to get back around when this place is packed, I can understand how people would think its bad bar service. But in reality its just its shear volume of people there. Maybe I just do this cause i'm in food and bev myself. But as a server, I enjoy going to The Shelter Kitchen and Bar, happy servers, happy people, happy managers, and a great overall atmosphere. Will be there again, and again.
I have been going to Morgan Creek grill for several years. Haven't ever thought much of the service or the food, but love the location. After enjoying a nice afternoon downstairs at the Creek with friends I learned a few days later that they had charged my credit card twice. I called immediately and after speaking with 3 people was transferred to Carla Pope the "manager" who told me "it was a busy day, it was a human error." I totally agreed. Carla said they would refund my credit card for the second duplicate charge, so I asked that the restaurant also pay the expenses they incurred because of their double charge and Carla refused. She told me "its not our fault you can't manage your money." What? As a local who has frequently Morgan Creek Grill for years I cannot believe the outrageous attitude and behavior Carla exhibited. Where is the service recovery? After speaking with the bank today and no refund has been processed I will be contacting the fraud department.
