I was recently at Huger's for a Young Professional Mixer and had a great time. It was some of the most engaging conversations I've had in years. Also, we sampled the food. It was out of this world!
Best sushi in Charleston! The manager personally came over to our table to great us and see how we enjoyed our meal. There is not one bad thing to say about this place. Every time I eat there, I always leave wanting more. SO GOOD!
TONIGHT is a Dancehall Reggae Party you don't wanna miss!!! Big up Tsunami for the great $2 Drink Specials and Sushi till Midnight !!
Great food, service, adult beverages and valet parking. The Drum beats them all.
A great little known spot for superb drinks and good conversation.
I am never disappointed when I come to Crave - the food not only tastes delicious, but the ingredients are fresh. I have tired a lot of items on the menu - and my personal fav is the Northern Italian Beef and Pork Bolognaise - to die for! My husband has had a hard time deciding what to eat because it is all so good, but he does enjoy the Cedar Plank Salmon. A dinner would not be complete without trying thier creamy mac and cheese and lobster risotto. The service is efficent but it is the food that drives me back here- an hour drive each time!
Try Crave - you won't be disappointed.
Bacco has steadily been my favorite restaurant in Charleston (actually, period) for the past few years since it opened. It is very tasty, very inexpensive, and very cozy.
If you're reading this thinking "huh, I should try this place" then please consider this: go during the week. The word has gotten out and the restaurant is starting to fill up on weekends. I like eating here at 7 pm on a Saturday, so don't steal my table. Go on Tuesday or Wednesday, when chef/owner Michael offers his 7 course tasting menu for a mere $20. This includes 3 antipasti (appetizers), 3 primi (pasta), and a choice of dessert. The full menu is also available. Or go on Thursday, for half price wine bottles.
The food is the star here. Have you ever eaten something, closed your eyes, and had a moment, an experience? Not just putting food in your mouth because it's a metabolic necessity of life, but an actual experience from food? I've had that at probably 3 restaurants in my life, and Bacco is not only on the list, it's a repeat performer. Let's talk about some of those foods/moments.
Chicken liver crostini: If you don't like to eat "gross" stuff, you can skip this and go on to the pasta. That leaves more for me. These are magical. I order extra plates of this when I see it on the menu. When I was in Paris, I ordered goose live foie gras pate at every occasion. These crostini aren't just the next best thing to a Parisian cafe, they're better.
Pappardelle: On my first trip to Bacco, I had never heard of pappardelle. Afterwards, I scouted every grocery store in Charleston to find it (I'll save you the trouble: Whole Foods and Harris Teeter). This is a wide fettucini-like pasta with tomato sauce, basil, and mozzarella, as simple as it can get. It is also spectacular, a real example of the beauty of simplicity.
Ricotta cheese cake: I am not a dessert person, so just making it on this list is an accomplishment for the chef. This is unlike any other cheese cake you've had. It focuses on flavor and texture, not just cramming sugar and saturated fat into a wedge and calling it dessert. Also to note are the strawberries with balsamic reduction, again actual cuisine and a tasty way to end the meal.
Butternut squash soup: This is my wife's favorite dish. I normally think of soup as a course you get out of the way so you can get to the actual food. Much like salad. I make exceptions for only two: this and she crab soup. And wedge salads with bacon, but that's a different story.
Duck: I normally don't order, or particularly enjoy, duck. However, Michael makes the best duck leg, which my wife thankfully ordered, let me try, and I will now order next time I am there. I had similar tasting duck at a double Michelin starred restaurant, but Michael's is tastier, tenderer, and crispier.
There are many others, but considering the menu rotates seasonly, if not weekly, you're likely to have different choices each time you arrive.
In regards to the other aspects of the restaurant, as if the food isn't sufficient, the atmosphere is perfectly simple and comfortable, much like the food. The wait staff is perfect. I know most of them by name, because they are noteworthy.
Again, and I can't stress this enough, this restaurant is a must visit and my unequivocal favorite in town, but the 7 course chef's tasting menu on Tuesday and Wednesday is not only a steal of a deal, but a great way to experiment, diversify, and try some world class food you might otherwise not consider. If you go any other day, the regular menu is sure to please. Just don't take the last table, I want it.
Forgot the stars! Great job on Daniel Island
Very friendly and knowledgeable bartender Amber (she's pretty too).
I had a visitor from Bavaria (THE beer country) and both of us enjoyed the locally brewed Westbrook wheat beer and the delicious food. Definitely not the last time I was there!
Great place to go for Beers and Music. Best part about this place is the Band, Bartenders, and Beers. It is not the best place to eat nor the best "Irish Bar" but the music and atmosphere has always made it ideal for me.
Love Wild Wing! Bring Thomas Tillman back !
I just wanted to let everyone know that this bar became under new ownership back in August of 2010 and I ask that you don't hold any of the negative comments prior to that date against us. Even though we kept the same name, we have greatly improved the bar and it's atomosphere. I invite everyone to come and check the bar out for yourself and for anyone who had a negative experience I ask that you come by and give it another shot. Thanks and I hope to see you at The Brick!
We were looking for a place for lunch yesterday and we came upon "Closed for Business" and decided to give it a try. I ordered the Grilled Cheese w/ tomato soup. The grilled cheese was DELICIOUS on thick sliced, buttery bread w/ three kinds of perfectly melted cheese. The tomato soup was also delicious, very fresh. My boyfriend ordered the fried chicken sandwich w/ french fries. That was also really yummy, the chicken was very lightly fried and not greasy. The fries, fresh cut, were so good we were fighting over the last few! Our server was very sweet and upbeat. The overall ambiance was very calming and inviting and I loved the handmade-looking lamps on the booth tables! I like knowing my food comes from local businesses, and it was well worth the $25 for lunch. We will be back again soon to try some of those craft beers and the pork rinds! Thanks for a GREAT lunch!
This is the finest pub I have been to in Carolina. The owners are friendly, the music great and - - the drinks are not bad either!
1337 has a cozy environment. The staff and girls are all friendly and yet crazy at the same time! Love that place!
Great atmosphere, great food, and incredible bar! Love it!
Wow! I am shocked at the bad reviews. I LIVE at Montreux. I am there nearly five times a week. I have NEVER had a bad experience. I have never seen the drunks people talk about either. In fact, one person in our group was dropping the "F" bomb rather loud and the waiter came over to say, "You're going to have to quiet down." My friend was greatly offended, but I really appreciated that.
Just discovered where the dman is. In top form as usual. Great place. Have some terrific acts. Hoping they can do more in the food department but what they have is good. Find a signature dish or something. Everyone should try this new place. What a better place to tell your friends you spent the night at......REHAB bar and grill
I have followed Ronnie for years and he just gets better. Buddy Roe's is his best venue yet. Great music, great food and great FUN!
I have known Ronnie Johnson since the early 80's when we both worked together in Wild Dunes. I've been to 3 clubs that he has owned, 2 in Mt. Pleasant, and 1 on Isle of Palms and I must say the current location is my favorite! At the gateway to Sullivan's Island, with a great outdoor deck, putt putt course, great entertainment (thanks for bringing Robert Hutto back to the area), wonderful food-the best fried shrimp around! Staff is very friendly, and Ronnie is always around to greet and chat with his customers.
It's a great low-keyed, casual and comfortable environment, love the deck, great oyster roasts, and overall a great place to hang with friends, meet new friends, enjoy good food, and fabulous entertainment. I am in my late 40's and lots of people my age there.
And no Josh, I am not getting free food for posting this review, I like to support those that I know have worked very hard to be the success that they are!!!
