Re: “Bacco Italian Restaurant

My husband and I first went to Bacco a few months ago (after passing it numerous times and saying "we need to try that place!"). It was everything we had hoped for and more. The bread is magical - very crusty on the outside and soft on the inside. The half-carafe of red wine is tasty and reasonably priced. The fettuccini alfredo is full of flavor but not as heavy as others I've had/ But the star of the place for me is the PAPPARDELLE AL TELEFONO. So simple, yet so amazing. It's just pappardelle pasta with house-made mozzarella, tomato sauce, and basil, but it's probably the best tomato sauce I've ever had. It's a dish I dreamed about afterwards. We've now made it somewhat of a tradition to go for a date night on Friday night when we're in town. I can't say enough good things about this place! You absolutely have to try it!

Re: “Back Home Bar & Grill

Back Home Bar and Grill serves up delicious food with great service. The menu offers something for everyone, and everything is really, really good. With its homemade bread and tender, perfectly seasoned beef, the Philly Cheese Steak is authentic and delicious and the Carnegie Deli-inspired Reuben is the best you'll find this side of NYC. And the fries...... they're fresh-cut and crisp, without being greasy.

We'll be back soon to try the Maine Lobster Roll!!

Re: “Cypress Lowcountry Grille

Best "bar" food in town!!!
The sirloin in a steamed bun, flatbread pizza and the bahn mi are out of this world. My wife really enjoyed the sweet and sour meatballs and the crab rolls (lobster style and she ate both)
One so-so dish (streak fries i.e. potatoes wedges) out of seven is 5-star. You're not going to save money by eating in the bar but a couple can share 6 or 7 amazing dishes and have a 2 or 3 drinks apiece plus a generous tip for about $150. It's laid back and delicious what more can you ask for.

Re: “Husk Restaurant

Husk can be found in a beautifully restored residence on Queen Street. When you walk up to the restaurant, it reminds you of a prohibition-era estate with a beautiful landscaping and an impressive front porch that invites you inside with its Southern hospitality. The interior is very classic and southern, dark wood, with lots of little candles highlighting the architecture and design of the building that once housed residents. I would describe Husk's menu as a very inspired southern comfort food composed of ingredients produced exclusively in the south. Husk is another one of Sean Brock's many successes (you may have heard of McCrady's) and his southern roots and attention to detail are obvious in every part of the experience.

When you first sit down, you are greeted with a sweet grass basket of warm rolls topped with sea salt and benne seeds. The menu at Husk changes daily based on what ingredients are the freshest or what mood Brock is in. Although some of the dishes do show up on a regular basis, expect some surprises if you go more than once. Many of the dishes are pig-centric and all of them have a southern flair. For example, I had the crispy pig ear lettuce wraps which were like nothing I had tried before. For the entrée, I went with the duo of pork which consisted of a perfectly braised pork belly and an equally juicy pork shoulder. In addition to pork, there are plenty of other amazing options to choose from. We also had the wood-fired clams and pan seared sea bass which were both stunning. The quality of the ingredients is obvious and the execution was flawless across our table.

Our server provided just the right level of service - not too overbearing but never let our glasses sit empty. And on that note, if you are a fan of bourbon prepare to be delighted. The array of whiskies available at Husk will blow your mind. Many of them I had never heard of and some I had been dying to try but never seen them available. Husk's wine list has a good range of selections without being overwhelming. However I though the fact that it was organized by soil type was a bit pretentious of them. How many people know what type of wine they like based on the limestone content of the ground in grew in? That aside, our experience here was absolutely top-notch and the food is a great way to try southern food with a splash of elegance.

Re: “The Break Room

We love the Break Room and everyone there! They have the best food! (Thank you, Nate!) Tony is the best bartender ever...we met "Bartender Bobby" the other night and he did a great job. Bobby is a very nice person! Good prices. The regulars there are the nicest people you would ever want to meet...Jan, Pete, Steve, Jerry, Missy, Jake, and of course...Willie :) just to name a few of the many. Great, very friendly, welcoming crowd. The Break Room is upscale without being snooty. We found the Break Room quite a while ago and we have become "Vacation Regulars"! Made good friends and we look forward to go there each time. We always feel welcomed by all! ~ Terry and Barbara Bozon, Raleigh, NC~

Re: “Wolf Track Inn

Was a truly fun evening when the Wiggins Brothers played about a month ago maybe late June or early July 2012. I hope the 'Track' will have them back soon.

Re: “Pearlz

Pearlz is great for happy hour. The menu is very reasonably priced for the quality of food. They have a tuna tartar dish that is a stand out, and the shrimp are perfectly fried. The fish tacos are unremarkable. I'm not an oyster person, so I can't speak for those, but people seem to love them. In addition, the draft beer is always really cold, and the bar tenders and servers are friendly and efficient. I've never had a bad experience at this place.

Re: “Laura Alberts Tasteful Options

Close drive from airport. Friendly and outgoing staff knowledgeable on craft beer and wine. A quaint gourmet cracker-barrel (shop and eat: half wine/beer shop, half southern cafe)! Modest but stellar beer selection in back. Growler and bomber fills. I definitely will be back!

Re: “Diamonds North

There is nothing worse than a bitter fired employee. I work at a plant near there and go there after I get off. I have always been treated with courtesy and respect. The girls there are nice and nice to look at. They have a good variety and private dances are reasonable(they run a 2 for 1 every hour or so). There drink prices are competitive with ANY bar in Charleston (not just strip clubs).Before taking some bitter ex dancers word for it go check the place out yourself would be my suggestion.

Re: “Stiletto's

I always have a great time at this club, there is no other club in Charleston that can compete with it. The other ones have like 5 girls working but Jaguars always has 25-35 girls every time I come in, even for happy hour they have 10 girls which is 5 more then other clubs on Friday night!! Drinks are what you would expect your at a strip club so your gonna pay but they offer daily specials and if you stick with them your good.

Re: “Juanita Greenberg's Nacho Royale

Juanita Greenbergs is a jewel on King St. Its got a sign out front that invites a dog friendly atmosphere. The staff enures that the restaurant is kept spotless and sanitary, and food is delivered promptly to your table in virtually no time. Its a place where you can let your kids run around out back and play hide and seek, while you enjoy your favorite margarita in a relaxed, fun atmosphere. The patio area smells of Carolina Jasmine, as it is growing on the walls around the outdoor seating. I would recommend that anyone and everyone come enjoy this place. Also every Wednesday night one of the best female vocalists in town performs free to anyone who will listen, So come out and see Jordan Igoe and Friends. It will change your life. If you dont like the atmosphere clearly stated on the chalkboard out front, then go to McDonald's...lookin at you, Beth.

Re: “Bucca's Bar & Grill

They have a new Chef and now that the Owner is down to one the food is AMAZING and the service is excellent. The new Chef mixes it up with new and creative dishes and appetizers, and the portions are huge! Highly recommend the bacon wrapped scallops, the southwestern eggrolls, and the GATOR bites. Their friend clams are the best I have had since eating them in Maine. Highly recommend this restaurant and its food!
