It is an absolute shit hole. Now they have a "dress code"??!! A blue collar bar trying to b upscale. Tracy did sell the place but they kept her name? The only positive: a couple hot bartenders.
This place rules! Great beers to try, free pretzels and very friendly bartenders. It's a very chill atmosphere and good for a nice conversation.
Great bar, great beers, great people. Great place to talk to friends over a beer without drowning in college testosterone.
Best Mexican food in SC for supper reasonable pricing.
Staff is extremely attentive, fast and professional. Food portions are great size. Me and my mom had "fajitas for two to share" (Sizzling shrimp, chicken and pork with bell peppers + 6 warm tortillas side of fried beans and guacamole). Price 19$. We ended up taking some home and were full to max!!!! Awesome Margaritas and Daquries!
If you are into heavy smoking and prefer to pick up women who rate a 5 or less out of 10, this is the place for you. I will say a couple of the bartenders were cool and did their job well. Otherwise, the place is analogous to the quality of the set of teeth of the average woman who goes there.
They have 4pool tournaments a week lots of fun
Hey guys, we're sorry but this write-up is incorrect on the Occasional Milkshake! They played last week in The Alley, it was awesome. As much as we'd love to have them back in here with us they are not playing on Friday night. Mark Bryan and his band are incredible musicians, and great people.
We'll have all the NCAA Tourney games on the big screens and would love to have you in, fun atmosphere!
Have a great weekend!
The service at this place is terrible. Ive been there about 3 or 4 times because the food is decent, but I doubt ill be going back. I went there this past weekend and watched people on the right and left arrive after me and get get served over and over at the half filled bar...you seriously have to wave down one of the girls behind the bar just to get a drink or place and order. So after it took twenty five minutes for my order to come I just got it to go and left. Great way to lose business but maybe theyre not too concerned about that.
Ever since the opening of Cha Cha's, I only went here to party after-dark and have had mixed experiences, good and bad. It wasn't until last week that I decided to tag along to happy hour with some friends. I was blown away by the 1$ beef tacos and 1$ tecates. Seriously. Check it out.
Always a good time on Fri or sat fun place to drink dance or listen to live music
The Panko encrusted Cod Po'boy is my favorite!
Good burgers and Good craft beer.. What else is needed?
So glad Edmund's Oast is finally open now!
We had all Of medical school here and they treated us like crap- we brought them business and they even kicked one of us out because he "touched" an empty keg by the bathroom apparently "depressurized" it when he first got here. The service is terrible, watch out! Bad experience.
New owners, not Tracey anymore......now its not a good place anymore, save your money, go somewhere else!!!
The male bartender was awesome and he took over in the case of the negligence and rudeness of the female bartender. The female bartender was just plain nasty. She took an order from a guy standing right next to me when i clearly was before him then when i tried to get her attention she yelled "you have to wait a aminute" and served two more customers before me. I asked for Grenadine which they had in a bottle and she grabs a tray of cherries from the holder and poured the juice right in my drink. The other bartender made me a fresh drink but still :-P Also Karaoke Chris was rude. When It was my turn to sing on the Mic. Im an African american female and there was one african american male in the building and I guess it was Chris friend and said on the mic "hey man I couldn't tell the difference between you two" and started laughing to his underlying racial joke. But with my beautiful self i stole the show and he shut up. But Its a shame that 2014 I had was witness to ignorance of this sort in my own hometown. And I will definitely let the world know!!!!!
I didn't go there for the beer (so my rating is for the food only)... and had the Pork Schnitzel and Kaesespaetzle twice now. 1st time I was positively surprised by the taste, 2nd time 2 weeks ago not so much - the Schnitzel was not cooked/fairly raw and the batter didn't even stick to the meat; the Kaesespaetzle had more cheese than Spaetzle and was more like a soup. I know how it's done right, I'm a German. At the community tables it's disruptive if someone wants to use their cards...you got to move out of the way and it seems hard to keep the tables bussed..so you kind of put the previous guest's dishes away to the side yourself and hope a waiter/waitress doesn't think it's yours.
The staff is friendly and accomodating; the atmosphere fairly loud inside and it's a loooong wait for a table. I like the interior and the outside. Hopefully this place gets the kinks worked out - has lots of potential to be the IT-spot.
I have not had the pleasure of dining there yet, but will tell you that each of the six or so times I have been, I have been able to hear my friends talking, which is uncommon in most of the bars on upper King Street. Sitting back Saturday night and watching a good looking defense end looking Charleston boy show off his shag moves to his girl was just wonderful. You could tell, his mother taught him well. Other your me tried to free style to "Carolina Girl", which just did not cut it with their ladies or the crowd. Girls gathered and swayed, waiting for a guy to come and ask them to shag. They were pretty and the guys just did not get it. That was sad. However, the other fellow stole the floor and he knew it.
Being able to see the jazz guys that used to play at Mistral from afar is awesome and I would never think that I would have seen that in a bar on Upper King Street. Even DJ Matt Todd was setting up as I was leaving, who could often be heard at LIGHT, Peter Evans' place down the street (of Stella Nova fame..) He will nail what the crown and the bar wants - and keeping it on the low key and not loud side will continue to be a pay off for this place.
Finally, NICE ladies at the entrance to meet you, greet you, and help you get a table and identify if you want food service or just drinks. Nice to have someone paying attention to you in a lovely way at the door - the way that it should be.
Groundhog Day concert - I didn't know what to expect but the entire show was outstanding. It really showcased the quality and strength of the local music scene here in Charleston.
The Music Hall facility is hands down the best venue for concerts if you want to hear and see the artists.
