Re: “The Brick

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!

Re: “Closed for Business

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!

Re: “Finn McGoo's Irish Pub and Restaurant

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!

Re: “King Street Cabaret

Re: “Montreux Bar and Grill

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.

Re: “Rehab Bar & Grill

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

Re: “Buddy Roe's Shrimp Shack

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!

Re: “Buddy Roe's Shrimp Shack


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!!!

Re: “Buddy Roe's Shrimp Shack

I live in Columbia and come to the IOP several times a month and wouldn't think of going anywhere but Buddyroes. It has the best atmosphere, food and friendliest people. The best place to party in Charleston.

Re: “Buddy Roe's Shrimp Shack

I have known Ronnie for over 20 years. He is a great singer, entertainer and just an awesome guy! With his music he will get you off your feet and you will have a fabulous time dancing the night away...or just watch others making 'a fool' of themselves (the gator!!!) He and his beautiful wife Kim are wonderful people and you just can't help but love them!

Re: “Buddy Roe's Shrimp Shack

I've never eaten at Buddy Roe's but I hear the food is great. I go b/c Ronnie and Kim are great people, the staff is friendly and hard working, and the music is always excellent. The sound system in this room is exquisite and the people working it know what they're doing. You can go and listen to songs you know and love played by highly accomplished musicians and you can hear original music by artists we should all know but probably don't. I'm a music lover and I love Buddy Roe's!

Re: “Buddy Roe's Shrimp Shack

I have known Ronnie Johnson for over 20 years. He is an awesome singer and person! I have followed him from Edgars at Wild Dunes to his newest venue Buddy Roes! Some of his covers are better than the original artist! Buddy Roes has a great, laid back, friendly atmosphere. The food is tasty and the entertainment is excellent. I highly recommend this establishment. Words can't express what an awesome experience Buddy Roes provides! Wish I could go there more often!

Re: “Buddy Roe's Shrimp Shack

Great for lunch, dinner and music. Always a good crowd! Oysters and Carroll Brown are great on Sunday nights.

great food, great music, great times!!

Re: “Buddy Roe's Shrimp Shack

WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
We love to go to Buddie Roe's as much as we can for good times. There is always live entertainment with a great mixture of music that is great.

The atmosphere is laid back and feels like your in a bar in Key West Fl. Much dancing & drinking all night long.

Food is great, especially the shrimp baskets. This is also a great place to have a rehearsal dinner, office party or other function. Kim Johnson & the staff will work with you to put together a menu that works for everyone.

Ronnie Johnson has been entertaining people in the area since i moved here in 98. I have been going to see him sing or to one of his bars since then. Thanks for all of the great times!

Re: “Buddy Roe's Shrimp Shack

First visited Buddy Roe's this past November on a girl's weekend. We had the best time!! Everyone was so friendly! We has some great food and the band was really a blast!! I haven't danced that much in years. I can't wait to go there again this summer!

Re: “Buddy Roe's Shrimp Shack

Really hard to find good food/music in one place. Buddy Roe's excellent food and some of the best entertainment on the East Coast, constantly bringing in a variety of well know acts to add to the already great Ronnie and Chris show. Don't miss it if in the Mt. Pleasant/Charleston area!!

Re: “Buddy Roe's Shrimp Shack

My husband (Boyd) and I love to go to Buddy Roe's --- the atmosphere is one of being at home --- very friendly -- reminds one of the bar on "Cheers" where everyone knows your name ---

Kim & Ronnie are great -- they always make everyone feel so at home -- they go around and speak to everyone there -- the staff cannot be better -- just great. It is so nice that as soon as you walk in the door, the waitress is on her way to you with your wine. I love it.

Great food -- their pimento cheese hamburgers are awesome -- homemade pimento cheese by Kim.

Music: you are not going to get any better --Ronnie is so talented -- plays and sings very well, but also has a great personality. And Kim is a great entertainer also.
There is always a nice variety of music -- we are big "shaggers" and he always accommodates us --

In case, you cannot tell, Buddy Roe's is one of our very favorite places to go -- only issue that we have is that most nights, the music does not start until 9:00pm and we are about ready to go home by then (we are of the older generation, but still love to have a good time.)

Buddy Roe's is highly recommended by the Loadholts -- Ronnie & Kim, we love you.
