Great place for a pint o' beer... good atmosphere for hanging with friends (4+ stars). The food is good, but not wow, fairly typical (3 stars).
great beer selection, great games to play while there, always have every game on TV, and there is always a ton of good looking coed's there.
We ate here for the first time because it was close to the movie theatre. We will DEFINITELY go back!
the starter bread was delicious - had to stop myself from gorging on it.
I had a simple parmesan crusted chicken breast with field greens on top. A small plate (figuring on popcorn later, you know!) and it was perfect! My husband had the seafood mac and cheese - the shrimp were PERFECTLY cooked. Most places overcook their shrimp - and it would be easy to do in a casserole type dish. These were wonderful.
Our friends had a chicken pasta and shrimp and grits. Both loved them - We were all members of the clean plate club!
Pretty decent service - but really, we were there before 6:00 p.m. - the restaurant was so not busy. We thought the prices were reasonable, too.
I said to my husband and friends, we can go back - and not even if we're going to a movie! This is high praise, as we live on James Island and this is slightly out of our way!
First off the atmosphere is perfect for a date. The wine choice is excellent as well. The last time we went there though I had the lasagna and the bottom was burnt... The other times that we have been there though the food has been really good. I like that they have live jazz music as well.
rayjay is a pissed-and-bitter out-of-towner who was so juvenile that he pouted and asked for the remainder of his dinner order to go and did not leave a tip, even after the staff explained the situation to him (I was a regular local patron at the bar that night as well). This is an awesome hangout and highly favored by locals and visitors alike.
All you can eat local oysters on Sundays. $10. Yes.
Hardcore downtown "suits" happy hour crowd. Pool, darts, foul language, stiff drinks, mostly hospitality and hotel industry regulars. Except they're all friggin' Boston fans. What's up with that?!
Been there a few times, no problems at all. The food was Awesome! Brisket & BBQ best in the area. Having the ability to travel in Texas, Memphis & ST Louis, I still find the BBQ in the South so much better. I maybe spoiled, but there is nothing like getting Pork, chicken, ribs, whatever straight off the smoker, Sauce optional, as real BBQ does not need any.
The only drawback is a few bartenders do ignore "Non Regulars". I was overcharged for beers which I did not order or drink. So it happens, but more then once? Shame on them. I learned to bring in cash & pay as I go, problem solved! Tell them I tip at the end, got better service.
Since I haven't had the chance to attend I'll give the pub/BarBQ the benefit of the doubt. Through my observation of most of all of the above, it may me true that the neightborhood does not want the establishment located there.
Great place in Summerville. Lot's of friendly locals, great staff. The owner is usually there most of the time for a friendly chat. They have local bands every Friday, and on Saturday's the Karaoke get's rockin' around 9:30. The Karaoke has a very wide variety of music to sleect from and most of the time, if the KJ does not have a song, he will try to find it and get it within minutes. He plays great musical selections to fill in the time between singers if needed.
I'm pretty sure i could eat that 3lb burger... This place is great! Suprisingly every time i have come it's pretty slow (capacity wise, not service), saturday afternoons and such. But the food is always great and the beer selection even better.
I don't know what "spitfire" is talking about. I've been in a few times on trivia night, was there tonight actually, and I've never had bad service or food. Perhaps your attitude is what brings on the bad service?
I love Foster's! The turkey burger there rocks!
More power to you, Craig.
I've got to say "word up" to word too -- That review just doesn't add up.
I know Craig, admittedly not well, but well enough to know that he's a honest guy and certainly wouldn't fabricate a detailed story like that for the sake of the user review section of this website. Sounds like spitfire is some hybrid of a constant complainer & a leech, and any establishment is better off without either of them.
finally made it to Laura Albert's for lunch. Food was awesome! I got the seared tuna sandwich. nice, thick cut of tuna, seared wonderfully, piled high with fresh tomato. side of asian slaw which i did feel was missing a little something but couldn't place it. also, this was a little expensive for a place i could come on the regular (good thing it was a work lunch), $13 for the sandwich, but def worth it!
Personally I have always had a great time here. Everyone is really chill, nice. Good drinks, awesome place out back.
Surprisingly fun place to host a private party and slurp down a few "Trash Cans." Place is low key, but in a weird location (across from old Vickery's that's now closed, boo hoo : ( Wish the pool table was full size, but still OK. Food is high quality fare, and close to CofC, but it's NOT a place to take a date. Definitely a local happy hour and Boston sports bar. Nice patio, except for the endless horse and buggies coming down Market Street. Reminds me of Abe's in Mt. Pleasant for some reason...
Unique flavors of wings and they are delicious! My fav is the rasberry sauced wings. The staff is really down to earth and friendly. I'd avoid dining at lunch. I have heard the service lacks at that time of day. Great low key spot for evening!
The beers were plentiful and cold. The staff were pleasant and very attentive! The food was very good, but it did take a while to be served. Hey, we were really too busy unwinding after a hectic work week to notice! We can't wait to go back this Friday!
O, EVO, let me count the ways!
Pros: Fresh ingredients straight from the farm to your plate. Salads are delicious, Pizza crust is cooked to perfection, toppings make everything come together. Staff are friendly and attentive. Location is clean and bright.
Cons: Wish you were open more often and a tad bit cheaper.
A must for anyone...Will return and recommend to friends.
I thoroughly enjoyed my lunch at Laura Alberts. Not too long ago, I met my girlfriends for a glass of wine. They have quite a selection, but what I enjoyed was the relaxed atmosphere and ambiance. I will be back for their Wednesday dinner! The menu looks fabulous.
