Re: “39 Rue De Jean

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?

Re: “39 Rue De Jean

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.

Re: “39 Rue De Jean

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.

Re: “39 Rue De Jean

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.

Re: “Bambu

The food in this place rocks! I was afraid to go to this place because of what I saw online. But my best friend kept saying that I needed to go. So I went and WOW! Crazy! Food was great and inexpensive and the atmosphere was terrific.

So, being the jerk that I am, I'd asked, why did they get so many bad reviews and then they pointed to me to all of the other sites that they were doing well on. I showed them the review about the Groupon and they said that in this business, you can only try to please everyone. Not everyone can be satisfied. Further, they noted that they are under new management and that they took over the business in 2013.

Lesson learned: Most people that enjoy a location would never take the time to write a good review... it is only those that have a bad experience that go out of their way to note it. So... I am going out of my way to write a review of my experience last night!

Re: “Kudu Coffee House

Too many men wearing tight jeans and women reading books, but those are really negligible and are worthy of a pass. They would do well to add some cornhole boards and a few flatscreens so that you didn't have to make conversation with a bunch of potheads, but otherwise everything seems up to par. Despite some small shortcomings, they still make a good cup of coffee. You can even use your dog as a conversation starter seeing as how they allow canines and similar small pets on their deck.

And I agree with the reviewer above. The place is located in an absolutely JEM of a location.

Re: “Madra Rua

Amazing place.

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!

Re: “Vickery's Bar and Grill

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.

Re: “Ocean Cowboys

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.

Re: “Coconut Joe's Beach Grill & Bar

Hello every body my name is Cynthia Morgan, am from United Kingdom England, I just want to share my experience with the world on how Dr iayaryi, help me, I got my love back and saved my marriage… I was married for 3 years with 1kid and we lived happily until things started getting ugly and we had fights and argued almost every time… it got worse at a point that he filed for divorce… I tried my best to make him change his mind & stay with me because I love him so much and don’t want to lose him but everything just didn't work out… he moved out of the house because it was a rented apartment and still went ahead to file for divorce… I pleaded and tried everything but still nothing worked. The breakthrough came when someone introduced me to this wonderful, great spell caster who eventually helped me out… I have never been a fan of things like this but just decided to try reluctantly because I was desperate and left with no choice… He did special prayers and used his power… Within 4 days my husband called me and he said he was sorry for all the emotional pains he had cost me, moved back to the house and we continue to live happily and our kid is happy too and we are expecting our second child… I have introduced him to a lot of couples with problems across the world and they have had good news… Just thought I should share my experience because I strongly believe someone out there need’s it… You can email him through his email.(driayaryi2012@hotmail.com)
