I have eaten there 3x in the last 2 years, and each time my meal had something terribly wrong with it. The first time my ordered dinner was not available, (3 times after ordering...NOT kidding, and there excuse was that it was Sunday, and they were not usually open on Sunday), then it came back burnt, (mini Sliders I think...the bread was burnt, and the burger was wayyyyy overdon, but I am saving the worst part, and that was it had a hair in it. The second time, I am not kidding you, the cheese I ordered had mold on it. I KNOW: Why did I go back a second or even a third time?? The third time my meal came to ok, but it was NOT what I ordered, so I sent it back and 25 minutes later I got what I ordered but it was cooked so differently then I asked for it, and the waiter was really snobby and having a poor day.
I really want to like this place, and I have given it many chances. Additionally, it is crowded with people who are loud and obnoxious.
I am not old, nor a person who EVER sends food back. I LOVE food, I am a foodie, and love going out. But Social, for a local like myself who just wants to go out, have a great bite at a great value, be treated fairly, and not have to navigate a gross meat market where people cannot control themselves, Social is not it for me. Many of my locals friends agree. I think this place used to have a cool, chill crowd. It looks like they are making money, but it is not my kind of peoples. Or food. Or service. Decent wine list, though...
a nasty dump.... it really made me question whether or not the gas tanks were removed from that property!
Just visited the new location in West Ashley and don't think we'll return until they get their stuff together. The place was not crowded and the server was pleasant, but it took over 45 minutes for the food to get to the table. The food was good, but the wait was ridiculous.
I live in summerville and have all my life, once upon a time after Mgwack was closed down and you guys opened it was great, great bands, good food, and the staff was awesome.... now you go in and it is a bunch of trouble makers and underage kids playing grown up. the cops are all over the place waiting for you to leave to give you a ticket. there is ALWAYS over drunk creepers to and when you complain nothing is done b/c the drunks are the regs and "friends" with the staff.. it has become a high school atmosphere (not like its not obvious from the post)lame!, if your in the cool club you get special treatment. I have witnessed many people get thrown out for pathetic reasoning.. wake up.. you suck now.. get it together.. and your staffs attitudes need adjusting.. no one asked you all to work at a bar but if you are going to make a career out of it act like you give a crap.. in this place the customer is def not right.. well unless the staff likes you... if your looking for a good place that has an actual history with Summerville check out the pub across the street.. that is a great place and they do not tolerate the drunkees.. or the underage drinkers..
just wanted to let you know that it is bullsh*t this show is 21+. i am 18 and i cant go to this show.....i love this band. screw the dive.
A recent visit to the Mall location was a disaster: except for the onion rings. I was quickly seated by a harried mgr. Very soon a young woman handed me a menu and took my drink order. The drink was in front of me in short order. Then the wait began. The young lady never stopped serving other tables, taking orders and working up a low grade sweat. She passed by my table SEVERAL times after I had put the menu down. After approx 15 minutes I spotted her behing the service station sorting flatware. I walked over and asked if I could possibly place an order. She advised she was not my waitperson and had told another young lady about me. She did however take my order for a med rare american cheeseburger with raw onion. The real disaster was the cheeseburger. Why the hell do they season the meat with coriander and some other spice that left a metallic taste in the mouth. After two bites I asked for the check, paid and left. Never to return.
I think I will be staying away from shows at the Farm for a while....the last 3 shows (within last 2 months) I have been to have been great artists, but the venue really put a damper on the show. These artists have sound crews that know what they are doing in regards to setting up a sound system, but yet, the accoustics are so bad at the Farm, the music completely drowns the singers out most of the show.... Also, I realize it IS summer in Charleston (read: hot and muggy), but how about installing some XL/industrial fans to help keep air circulating on the floor area or revamping/updating the AC system so everyone isnt standing in a puddle of their own sweat? It also seems like they push the maximum person capacity too...I could barely squeeze my way to the bathroom from the floor, and even back by the bar area was super tight to pass through...maybe we could take a page from the HOB design?
This place is the pits -- We took a group of nine there for lunch -- THe loudspeakers were right overhead blaring deafening music -- we cold not talk = It was so uncomfortable-- they could not hear us asking to tone it down a bit.. I will never go back --
I cannot understand the glowing reviews of this place - GIVE ME A BREAK!
Not only is the food mediocre at best, and the service completely lame, but the place is located in an old gas station - yuck!
To the person who said the bartender put things on thier tab you are not the only one i had it happen to me and some of our friends have had it happen to them. I wonder if the bartenders are doing it and then spliting the money at the end of the night?? Something needs to be done. Me and my friends all said we would never go there again and i hope no one else does if they are going to run a business like that.
From a Folly Local: the service here is terrible. The bartenders can barely serve you even when the bar is empty.
Good luck in the winter with the local crowd to support you!
The Roadhouse was much better!
Security are d**ks!!! They have no idea what a rock concert is. DON'T go here for a rock show if you want to have cause they will kick you out. The Dive is exactly that a dive. Maybe if they lighten up it'd be worth it but not with the people they have working it now. Don't go here
The bartender's reaction when I simply asked if I could order some food made it perfectly clear I was being a horrible inconvenience to her.
Didn't stay for food. I don't need that crap.
Look I'm not a food critic, but I do have a lot of restaurant experience back of the house and front. That being said, first of all Triangle's location is perfect, the atmosphere was awesome. The service was okay, and the menu looked really interesting for a char grill. But the food me and my wife had was less than disappointing. The asparagus fries were flat and the aioli was like mayo and lemon......Horrible! We also tried all four of the egg rolls and the sauces, not worth the money at all! The Steak and Chicken skewers had no taste of lime or ginger at all. And the peanut butter I'm sorry "peanut sauce" was well, peanut butter. The champaign vinagerette was lame and had no signature. And the Pork loin platter was awful. The pork was cooked well but the the balsamic stuff tasted like pancake syrup, the sauteed spinach was like sauteed garlic with salt. Gross! The only thing worth anything on this platter was the sweet potatoe fries. Thank God they were out of the lamb flank because it would have been 3 extra dollars wasted. I wish I would have tried the burgers and maybe the comment would have been better but I wont go back to try my fate.
This place may rock on the weekends but it does nothing for you during the week. Had some dinner there with friends not to long ago. The food was so so, the cook must be sleep walking thru his/her cooking and the mixed drinks seem to be watered down. New inexperienced bar person I guess. Anyway I think there are a couple of other places in Summerville I would rather go to if I lived out there. Maybe thats the difference before Summerville and Charleston. Charleston folk expect the best and I guess if the best in Summerville is Montreux then the clientel is settleing for less than best, actually less the good. Must be a hick kind of thing.
Most definetly sounds like staff to me also. The last time I checked I lived in the United States of America where all citizens are entitled to their opinion. Don't tell this person HOW DARE HE, he can post his opinion on the internet if he wants!!!! Which by the way, when this place was McGuires it was awful, just because you change the name and gussie up the place doesn't mean the place is any better. McGuires...Montreux it is still pretty awful. They still serve drunks, they don't cut them off,the staff at one time showed improvement but they are back to ignoring you, texting or talking on their c phones or posting comments on this page about how wonderful Montreux is. What a SHAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I also live on James Island and went to Montreux with some friends who had heard it was worth the trip. I don't think its worth the trip. We were at the bar and the food was so so. Not worth the money they charged for it. The comments posted by "Roof" sounded a little too close to home. It sounds like an employee or owner trying to discredit other peoples opinion if their opinion is glowing with wonderful things about this place. Prehaps they should look up the word OPINION in the dictionary. You know the old saying....If you cannot take the heat, get out of the kitchen. I will not return to even try this place a 2nd time nor will I recommend it to anyone else.
For 2+ years now my wife and I have heard rave reviews for Fiery Ron's BBQ. We love BBQ, and trying new restaurants. We are definitley loyal if we love a particular place, and we often find ourselves recommending bars and restaurants to family and friends in and out of towners. We also go to Sullivans beaches nearly every weekend. So we walk into Hometeam very excited about trying out the place. It was around 3pm in the afternoon on a Sunday I think. We stood there in the doorway for at least 10 minutes with servers, bussers, bartenders, and probably managers walking by several times. It was busy, I will give them that, but we not so much as had a look in our direction. I've been in the food and beverage business for nearly a lifetime, and don't mind waiting for great food. What pisses me off more than bad service, is not even being acknowledged that we exist in that moment in time! So after being ignored for about a total of 15 minutes, and feeling like a dumbass for waiting that long, we left and went across the street to Poe's and once again had an enjoyable experience! To the staff, at least say "hello," or even "we will be with you in a few minutes." Terrible first impression there Ron. I'll take my $ down to that BBQ joint across from Buddyroe's.
decent food, Priced ok I guess. not a good atmosphere. The manager Lisa appeared to have no clue what was going on and the cook Mitch is kind of a jerk.
Have been to this place several times now. Have been reading all the posts. They are interesting. Some nights it is okay, some nights is chaotic in there. They do allow just about any one, drunk or sober. They never cut anyone off and the obnoxious drunks are allowed to stay. The place needs to be more consistent. It's like that also with the food. Sometimes its good and sometimes its bad. They haven't found a happy medium. They need to!!!
