Re: “Cactus Car Wash

I read the other reviews, was hesitant to go, but did not feel like driving further to other locations, at a little bit lower price and less work to be done. I have neglected the interior of my car for a while now, and just wanted it cleaned. I went with the full detail package, so they would shampoo seats and flooring. I arrived, Met Eric, (Sales) and standing out in 34 degree weather, he could not BE more friendlier, or more courteous than he was. My car was taken into the wash, and just the exterior, upon departure was impressive. Will ( General Manager) started the vacuuming process, drying the vehicle and spent considerable time on the interior, with Quashawn and Anthony Assisting him. Anthony then took my vehicle off to be detailed on the interior. While waiting for the car, Will ( GM) continuously kept me updated on the work, and the timing, When I received my car, I was speechless. I was in a state of truly being amazed. we both (will and I) checked over the car, not a single spot on the exterior, they even went so far as to buff out two scratches on the door, that I had been unable to get out, and once I opened the door and looked inside, my true amazement was evident to the crew standing by. I felt like I received my car off the Showroom floor...It truly looked like it was a brand new vehicle.....GREAT JOB Will and crew.....

Re: “Olympik Restaurant and Bakery

We got take-out from there last week. Food was very good, with generous portions, and the gentleman there (the owner?) couldn't have been nicer. We'll definitely go back!

Re: “Blu Gorilla Tattoo Studio

Went here with my brother and wife to set up an appointment with Robin, wife places her down payment of $40 for next week, my brother and I email our tattoo ideas. Robin doesn't show up to his appointment, luckily they were able to transfer it over to a brother shop. 3 weeks and 4+ phone calls go by and they haven't responded to our email. No apologies. Taking our business elsewhere. Art work seems great, costumer service not great.

Re: “Bushido

I went a few times when they first opened. The service was terribly slow. The food was hit and miss.

As has been stated by others, these guys do not know how to make sushi rice, for some reason. It is wet and soggy. The flavor is not correct for sushi rice.

The last straw was when I went to get some takeout. I bought quite a bit because I like to snack on it all night. When I got home and took it out, the tuna had thick white stripes. This is not fat, it is connective tissue or gristle from a part of the steak that you should never use to make nigiri sushi with. I tried one piece, and had to spit it out. It was like eating a rubber band. I could not force myself to swallow it.

I drove straight back there, and told them I wanted my money back (which they did without argument). When I got back in the car to go home, I noticed it smelled like someone had farted in there. That's how bad the fish was.

I will never go back.

Re: “JB's Smokeshack

Not bad but nothing special. I remember once when they tried to charge me a dollar for a Styrofoam cup of water. Smoaky Oak on JI is better IMO.

Re: “The Granary

This place is the jam. I can't say enough nice things about it. My husband and I go at least a couple times a month- their food is always delicious. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable about their dishes. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. The happy hour specials are the bomb. I love The Granary! You will not be disappointed with this restaurant.

Re: “Coconut Joe's Beach Grill & Bar

Hello every body my name is Cynthia Morgan, am from United Kingdom England, I just want to share my experience with the world on how Dr iayaryi, help me, I got my love back and saved my marriage… I was married for 3 years with 1kid and we lived happily until things started getting ugly and we had fights and argued almost every time… it got worse at a point that he filed for divorce… I tried my best to make him change his mind & stay with me because I love him so much and don’t want to lose him but everything just didn't work out… he moved out of the house because it was a rented apartment and still went ahead to file for divorce… I pleaded and tried everything but still nothing worked. The breakthrough came when someone introduced me to this wonderful, great spell caster who eventually helped me out… I have never been a fan of things like this but just decided to try reluctantly because I was desperate and left with no choice… He did special prayers and used his power… Within 4 days my husband called me and he said he was sorry for all the emotional pains he had cost me, moved back to the house and we continue to live happily and our kid is happy too and we are expecting our second child… I have introduced him to a lot of couples with problems across the world and they have had good news… Just thought I should share my experience because I strongly believe someone out there need’s it… You can email him through his email.(driayaryi2012@hotmail.com)

Re: “JB's Smokeshack

Jb's is really good, you just need to go before the buffet gets destroyed. Their meat is really smokey, i don't see how the last guy thought it wasn't unless his last name is Dukes

Re: “Bugby Plantation

Bugby Hole was a popular anchorage on the Thames River for larger ships needing protection from storms and tides. The oxbow of the river at Bugby Marsh (Greenwich Peninsula) created this deep hole just outside of London where ships were required to fly their colors prior to entering the city. Numerous references to “Bugby Hole” or “Bugby Marsh” or “Bugby Reach” exist in shipping maps and Parliamentary records prior to the 1800s when some maps started to misspell the name as “Bugsby.” This is a common mispronunciation of our family name. “Bugby Marsh” was slow to be developed because it was a marsh and needed to be drained. The Dutch evidently helped to do that. Early artwork and maps shows it as a vacant stretch of ground, where the pirates were hung in gibbets away from businesses and homes but in plain view before starting an overseas journey. During the time of the East and West India Companies, Captain John Bugby was active in overseas shipping. There were other Captain Bugbys including Timothy and William around 1625. Popular use by the Bugbys being anchored in this location is what likely landed the name. They were evidently proud of having their family name being placed on “Bugby Hole” for river maps of the Thames in the early 1600s. The Bugby family of London had the money to invest in plantations at Montserrat, St. Croix, and South Carolina during that time. “Bugby Hole” was used as the name for these plantations in the West Indies, (Caribbean). Books by Daniel Defoe, the author of Moll Flanders, and his official British coastal guide, referenced “Bugby's Hole.” By 1665 naval maps and even a ship diary referenced “Bugby's Hole” during the London plague. “Bugby Reach” appeared on some maps on this stretch of the river. “Bugby Marsh” was named for the stretch of the river but no Bugby was ever a landowner there. Later maps continued to use the misspelling of Bugsby on the marsh and on the river after 1850. “Bugsby’s Way” in Greenwich at the O2 arena is a great tribute to the early history of the area. Unfortunately, it should have been named Bugby’s Way. Sincerely, Dale Bugby

Re: “JB's Smokeshack

Really disappointing. The good reviews were the reason I decided to go there. I guess I should have known better as soon as I saw the buffet setup. There are about a thousand bottles of their sauce in there, so it seems like they are trying to sell sauce rather than good food.

I picked up a pound of Pulled Pork (I like BBQ sandwiches) and a large Mac and Cheese to bring home and share with my friends. The meat was sort of soggy, and had clearly been reheated. There was no flavor to it. There was no bark or crust. I could not detect any smoke flavor. Contrary to their slogan, the only way to get any taste from this was to sauce it up. Their sweet sauce was really good.

The Mac and Cheese was the worst I have ever attempted to eat. I mean really bad. I appeared to have been made many days prior. One of those microwavable cups of Kraft would have been a far better choice. I threw most of it away.

Hard to believe how difficult it is to find good BBQ in Charleston. Don't get me started on Home Boy Team Robbery BBQ - They suck too.

Re: “Zero George Cafe + Bar

Hidden gem of the city. Ultra cool atmosphere, excellent food, first class service and, thankfully, off the beaten path. Best appreciated at night when you approach through the gas lite courtyard, walk through the cozy kitchen, step down into the intimate bar, slip into the adjoining restaurant area or proceed up to the lounge rooms bathed in candlelight. As a Charlestonian, it's my go to place to impress friends, clients and dates. My only hope is that the locals don't find out about this place, which I might have just done with this review.....

Re: “Burris Liquor Store

I am looking for a Clyde Burris who lived in West Memphis, AR 50 or so years ago. He had a brother named Rodney, a beautiful sister (who's name escapes me) and a mentally disabled sister named Peggy. Just wondering if you are the Clyde Burris who was my neighbor on S. Worthington Dr. Elaine Wever Wolff (elainew84@hotmail.com)

Re: “Seashore Farmers' Lodge Museum and Cultural Center

I remember passing this lodge in the late 80's and early 00' while visiting my Aunt and Grandfather that lived on Sol Legare rd and Richardson Rd. My eyes always followed it. It was leaning to the side almost in the 90's when I saw it. Looked abandoned. my dad said when he was younger he would go there..He didn't speak of his past too much though.

Re: “Locals Bar

Amazing sushi. Very interesting choices. Good prices especially for how large the rolls are

Re: “The Lot

My wife and I had one of the best meals we've ever had here last weekend. I had the brick chicken which would have filled both of us - half of a chicken and a giant plate filled with beets, white sweet potatoes, carrots, and other seasonal veggies. The chicken skin was peppery and crispy, but the meat was almost melt in your mouth juicy. It was a nice dining room with very professional service - hearing the sound check over at the Pour House was kind of fun...put some James Island character into it.
