Agreed. It's 2011, and the fair still lets morons walk around blowing cigarette smoke at people.
Wise up, exchange club, make designated smoking areas and the rest smoke free.
Especially the amphitheater, where people are packed in to see the bands.
Designated smoking areas will only slightly inconvenience a few and greatly improve the fair experience for many.
this place is in a bad location safety-wise.
If I could give Gene's negative stars I would.
A shame, because Gene's has a great beer selection and board games at every table is a neat concept. However, the entire staff is nothing but arrogant pretentious hipster losers that act like they are doing you a favor by giving you crappy service. I've had one or more of them be extremely rude to me and my friends almost every visit. I've had friendlier service at Dick's Last Resort. Not kidding.
The food is also very uninteresting. Honestly, there is really no reason to go there except for the large beer selection. If Gene's fired all of their employees and started over then I might consider giving it another shot. Until then I will be at Roost!
I would give it 0 stars if i could. Never in my life have I had cold, burned, soggy french toast. The waitress was horrible. I would sooner eat at a McDonalds before returning.
What happened to Gennaro's? As a former denizen of NYC of Italian extraction I found that Gennaro's was the only place that had the gravy similar to what I'm used to. I had dinner this week and I think that the economy is taking a toll on them and they are now cutting corners. Salad; outer leafs of lettuce, one olive, two tomatoe slices and an onion? Weak... The alfredo was disappointing as the sauce tasted and had the textrure of library paste with a faint cheese taste. Very disappointing. It seems that they are cutting back and trying to stretch a few ingredients. It will be a while before I consider trying them again.
I don't work for an opposing club. I came, I saw and I went out. If you call a "classy club" one in which you have fat, bloated skanks onstage with "helmet hair" and a clientele of alcoholics, losers and violent bikers...I guess it all depends on your definition of the word "classy."
As for reasonable dance prices, how is $50 a lap dance from some toothless, smelly skank considered "reasonable"? I have a mutual friend who delivers pizzas to this place and can verify everything that I have said about the club and its "classy" dancers.
You people at Diamonds North need to not be so sensitive to criticism. Just because someone offers a critical opinion or one that isn't favorable to your club doesn't mean that they work for a rival club and want to hurt your business. Your business is already hurting. How do I know? The rows and rows of empty parking spaces in your parking lot. It's a hangout for losers and alcoholics who many of them are way too old to be hanging out in said establishments.
Horrible sports bar!!! Went to watch the Carolina Panthers game today and was told that all the TVs were spoken for. Could understand if we were not in the Carolinas or if the same game was not on multiple TVs.
If you are going to call yourself a sports bar, play the games that your patrons want to watch.
Terrible service, terrible food, horribly LOUD club music in the middle of the day and terrible TV coverage. (They "offer" MLB package but only show 1 or 2 games because they have 1 or 2 receivers and lots of splitters.) Appears the only way to get good service is to be buddy-buddy with the owner who is usually behind the bar making drinks for himself and his friends (not helping out with any of the other drink orders).
My experience last night at Hatchell's was horrible. My fiance were going to the movies last night and wanted to eat somewhere close to the theatre. Even though we had been to Hatchell's before and hadn't been super impressed, we decided to give it another try. When we got there, we told our waiter that we were trying to make a 7:40 movie (this was around 6:50), and he said it shouldn't be a problem. However, he made no attempt to speed up our service at all throughout the meal. When asking about the beer menu, we found out that most of the beers were no longer available, and the prices listed on the menu were not accurate. Once ordered, it took about 10 minutes just to get our beers. I could understand if the place was packed, but we were the only ones sitting outside, and there were about 4 seated tables inside. We then ordered the grilled chicken sliders and the sirloin quesadilla with no mushrooms. The sliders came out in about 15 minutes and were decent. The bread was chewier than it should have been, but, overall, they were edible. Then the waiter came out about 10 minutes later to inform us that the quesadilla somehow didn't make it into the computer. Ok, things happen. Again, my fiance asked for it to not have mushrooms. When it came out, it was full of mushrooms, and the "sirloin" looked more like a cross between roast beef and turky lunch meat. I wouldn't even touch it. My fiance said something to the waiter about it having mushrooms, but he made no attempt to right the wrong. Around 7:30, I went over to the theatre by myself and left my fiance to pay the bill. He ended up having to go to the bar to pay it, because the waiter never came back to pick it up. Overall, the food was sub-par and the service was abysmal. With so many delicious places to eat in this area, I'm surprised this one stays in business.
Watch your card...witness the vanishing waiter!....We waited with our empty plates and glasses for over 45 minutes. Finally we walked up to the bar where four employees gathered to talk instead of noticing we no longer had a waiter. I asked them where our waiter was...their response "ugh I dunno I just got here"....I left a crappy tip...I should not have left one at all. Three days later they put a larger tip on my credit card!....tis a shame the food was good..perhaps one day they will find people who want to work.
THE WORSE BAR I HAVE EVER BEEN IN. TOOK THIRTY MINUTES JUST TO GET A BEER. EACH TIME WAIT FOR A DRINK WAS MINIMUM 15 MINUTES . MY GUESS IS BECAUSE ME AND FRIENDS WERE DRESSED NICE AND THIS BAR IS LIKE A WHITE TRASH HOLE IN THE WALL. THEY GET ONE STAR BC COULD NOT KEEP UP WITH MY ORDER SO MY TAB WAS ONLY 18$ WHEN SHOULD HAVE BEEN WELL OVER THAT.
I agree with Gatermama....service is VERY poor....AWFUL service!
Not Swanky......Ridiculous let me just say again. RIDICULOUS!!
This place is absolutely horrible. This is a definite do not go. I asked for a rum an coke and the bartender actually asked me "what's in it?". The drinks are overpriced as others have mentioned and the food is even worst. I ate the shrimp and was practically out of commission. I wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy. The 'relatively' new owners have run this place into the ground.
This might be one of the bigger jokes in the Charleston area. Granted, the place has been updated nicely - and the dj is great - BUT, we arent in Vegas fellas. The rude doorman/bouncers with their ear pieces and tough guy attitudes is laughable. Pricey drinks and bartenders who make you feel lucky to get served doesn't last long here. Best was a fight in the parking lot at 2 AM. Mount Pleasant people! Take it to N Chuck!
We ate there once a few months back. Ordered the "jerk chicken". I'm a restaurant owner/manager and I hate it when customers get a slightly underdone piece of chicken and refer to it as "raw". I can find no other term to describe this chicken we received at Coconut Joe's other than RAW. It was literally cooked about 1/8" on either side. Like on the grill for 30-45 seconds, flip, 30-45 seconds on the other side. The entire center (75% of the chicken breast) was jelly raw.
The reaction of the restaurant was like it didn't matter a whole lot.
The manager offered us dessert.
If Diamonds North is so great, how come it's always dead on the weekends when I drive by there? And how come y'all are having live bands perform now on some nights instead of the skank dancers?
I have never writen a review on establishment before, but I feel I have to after this past Sunday. So you call yourself a sports bar and your not prepared for a NATIONAL sporting event like the Woman's World Cup!!!!! I could not understand why you would not have enough wait staff on hand for an event such as this so that my friends and I, that are sitting at a table, did not have to order two beers at a time or even go to the bar and order a drink due to your wait staff being slow and under staffed. What's sad is that a few of my friends that I was sitting with kept stating that this is "typical JI King Street Grille" Also folks in my party had to litterally leave the table and look for our server to get our check once the game was over. Truly have some major concerns for this King Street Grill and its patrons come this upcoming football season. TV's great, food good, beer good if its not the second of the two you had to order at the same time thats a little warm now, and service well...... SUCKS!!!!!
Would be nice if they paid better attention to their food. The jumbo wings had to be a joke as they were the smallest and driest we had ever had. Beer is on the pricey side and the staff seems to have no passion for the job or the guests.
Gross food. Insulting staff. Cheap for a reason.
