"This seafood restaurant boasts two bar areas — an inside bar shaped like the bow of a boat with three beers on tap, and an oyster bar toward the back, decorated with fishing gear."
Actually, it has three bars. The third is the only dock bar on Shem Creek (as in, it's built on pilings over the creek).
This place has been in business in 1982. The food is good, including the steaks, but service can be a inconsistent.
My wife and I went to the beach with our dog. As we left we wondered if Red's was dog friendly. They were more than dog friendly, they gave us a great seat on the deck and brought our big dog a bowl of water. Almost every customer and server stopped by our table to pay him some attention.
The service and food were really good and the staff were super friendly.
We've been back twice since then for the all-you-can-eat crab legs and loved it. The wait during summer was pretty bad (it never crossed my mind that it was tourist season until we got there), during the off-season we never had to wait for a table.
Comparing the Seabrook location to the Mt Pleasant location it's hard to believe it's the same restaurant, the vibe is so different. The Mt Pleasant Red's is much more "rustic" and like a bar that happens to serve seafood. If that's your thing great, I prefer the more open and airy Seabrook location for it's laid back atmosphere. It's mid July as I write this and I can hardly wait for September, when I plan to be back at Red's.
Our meal was so horrible that I cannot even rate it with 1 star. Meal took 40 minutes to arrive at the table, food was ice cold. Burger arrived 10 minutes later - cooked well done vs med rare as ordered. The lettuce in the grilled tuna salad was rancid and rotting. Manager comped entree portion of the meal - but worse was the attitude - she really did not care. I'm local and posting on every blog I can find.
Royal IS an amazing store with old-school service, they're awesome. But for all you people who regularly shop at Lowes or Home Depot, next time you need something, check out your local hardware store. There's usually one within a few miles, they're privately owned, service oriented(they actually know what they're talking about) and their prices are the same or better than the big boxes. I promise you'll be blown away and will become a regular customer.
Not the greatest place to go if you are into actually listening to music. The highs (treble) bounce all over the cavernous box, and I'm pretty sure the MO is to crank up the volume to an ear splitting level because the monkeys at the bar are yelling drink orders and clanking beer bottles. I've seen artists ask the crowd to quiet down (e.g. JJ Grey, Amos Lee), and it just didn't happen. I also noticed that they haven't come back. The vibe in there is "college party", with the music appreciators crammed in the snake pit in front of the stage.
Overall, the layout isn't conducive to having a place to post up, have space, and enjoy the music...if you creep to the back for space you're forced to observe the party-goers and their noise. Best place in town for actual "dialed in" music levels is the Pour House (except the Music Halls of course, but you're sitting down then)...the PH shows don't start until 11, so you better be a night owl.
Ever heard about Civil Court? Take him there for all the actual damages he has caused, and have the judge talk to him. You'll take him away from his job for a day, and that will cost him. Have any records prepared, in detail. so you can present them to the judge. These places are well known for their dishonest tactics.
The owner is a total crook. I've posted my experience every where today: I've had to file two BB complaints with Mr. Mulherin's Maaco regarding warranty work done to my vehicle earlier this year. One little mistake turned into six days of wasted PTO, over two hundred dollars worth of rentals on my dime, and my car still hasn't been fixed. This is the third visit and John Mulherin, the owner, just threatened to call the cops on me when I requested a proper loaner car for me and my two year old son. He offered a shop car that smelled like an ashtray, looked unsafe, dirty, worn, the front driver side door didn't even open... and asked that I drive that for three days til my car was ready. This is after he refused to pay $27 a day for a rental that would have been safe and clean to drive for me and my son. I am beyond hurt and aggravated that I cannot be shown proper respect as a paying customer and no one should either. His business practices are abhorrent, I'd take my business elsewhere. Oh yeah, he gave me a rock off his desk that said "Get Over It" and told me I should take the hint. Will do.
This is my new favorite restaurant in the city. The food was amazing - unique, extremely well thought out and done, and an overall gastronomic delight. To top it off, the staff was knowledgeable, friendly and personable bringing together the total presentation in a way you just don't find very often. I was with a group from various locations across the country. There were numerous comments that this meal ranked at or near the very top of all meals they'd ever had - both here and abroad I couldn't have been prouder of this local gem. Can't wait to go back.
So funny, I seemed to have the same problem at the one in Summerville. Had to reschedule due to the drawing not being completed, and after 2 weeks, half a grand for a thigh piece smaller than my hand. No wonder it seems like on one is ever there to get a tattoo
