Always a good time on Fri or sat fun place to drink dance or listen to live music
Was not impressed at all with this restaurant. I had my FIRST and LAST visit to Bighorn'ts last night! Had a complaint about my food, called to voice said complaint, and was RUDELY told that there was absolutely nothing that can be done!!! I thought this was RIDICULOUS!!! Not to mention, the menu is big, but filled with the same ol' stuff...NO VARIETY!!! To me, it's not much to choose from...as far as pricing goes, the food is NOT worth the money they're charging!!! Save your money and go somewhere else, I wish I'd did that...I wouldn't be writing this review!!! Needless to say, I will NOT be returning to this establishment!!!
The food is okay but the service is terrible. It's not the least bit Irish, so don't go there expecting it to be an Irish pub. They do half-priced burgers on Tuesdays, which is why we went tonight.
We sat for about 10 minutes with no one approaching us and watched two more groups get seated. A guy approached the group a few tables away, a girl approached the one in the booth directly behind us, and we were ignored. My husband caught the girl as she walked past and told her we were seated first and hadn't been greeted yet. She said she would find out who our server should be. The discussion with the hostess happened within earshot of our table. Apparently the hostess didn't tell anyone whose table it was, so the one serving the people behind us rolled her eyes and ended up being our server.
We waited for about 15 minutes before our order came out on a tray with the food for the people behind, despite our order being entered several minutes before theirs. That explains why my fries were lukewarm. The food was brought by someone other than our server, who tried to escape like she had dropped a bomb. We managed to ask for condiments and silverware, though. We saw our waitress once for the rest of our meal, when she asked how we liked our food and filled my husband's water. Lucky for us the couple behind us accosted the hostess to get their bill, and when the waitress appeared we got ours at the same time.
This the second time we've been for the half-priced burgers, and the second time we've gotten bad service. While the burgers are tasty it doesn't make up for the severe lack of service.
AGAIN......and when might 'BABY FAT' be returning to ARTS.....if they are still together...they're a truly good sounding bunch of guys...:) :) :) :) ...and it's all SUPER good while listening-watching them at ARTS.....

......and when might you book 'The Beach Brothers' again...that's Frankie McNeil, Mike Suggs and others, please...:) :) :)... I enjoyed a great meal at Tru Blues, the last time I was there when 'The Beach Brothers' were your entertainment....:)
Cha Cha's is a creeper. You can walk in to this lost strip mall joint and not expect anything at all. You can walk in and expect the typical American version of "authentic" Mexican. Or, you can just walk in and take it for what it is and then some. They have something special happening there. I've been going since they opened, and that was a rough start to say the least. they've really pulled the quality up by the bootstraps. I once had crappy service from a dum-dumb server at a table in the pool table room, that we kinda got forced to sit at, but never at the bar and never anywhere else with table sized parties.
Just tonight, the bartender smiled at me when I ordered another special cocktail. Like, I genuinely felt as if he was happy to make the drink rather it be an insult to his workload to make a $3 margarita. He was sincerely being gracious and hospitable.
The other major part about this place is the food. (going back to what to expect from authentic or americanized) It is what it is, and it's all good!! Bacon studded guacamole? You really can't go wrong with that. That may have just been a special, but it sincerely shows and proves that there is someone in the kitchen that truely cares about food.
Other than that, three words: Pork Belly Taco.
It will change your life......no really, it will.
(as long as they keep the pork belly portion well off)
finally a replacement for Buffalo South, the place has a great elevated bar, Happy Hour is superb.... we keep going back you should too, Tecate & salsa, what ever you order on the menu is nutrition with a buzz, what more can you ask from a sports bar ?
Bleh. Nothing more to say. Just bleh. Maybe a yawn. Bleh.
Don't believe this halfway to Halloween costume party coming up. We went to the one on Halloween and they decided not to give out any prizes since they didn't get enough entrants. I spent 2 hrs hand painting my husband as a skeleton and when we complained they offered us one shot of fireball. Boo! Ps. Not each, just ONE shot of fireball.
Decided to try the I'ON location with my best friend here visiting from from Texas. Of several places the two of us visited during his stay in town, O'Brion's actually did all of the basic things to make a customer feel like a necessary part of the business equation correctly. We managed to get a seat at a nice comfortable high top table, were greeted within seconds by a very lovely young lady (Eva) who was actually smiling and glad to be there, placed and received our beer order which arrived within a couple of minutes icy cold along with well chilled pint glasses, had our questions about the menu answered confidently, and proceeded to enjoy sports on the many quality flat panel screens without the annoying nuisance of loud blaring volume while waiting for our food. The food arrived quickly despite a sizeable crowd and my friend described the burger as the best he had enjoyed in Mount Pleasant. Likewise, the Cuban sandwich I received was total perfection on a plate. As a bit of a connoisseur of this particular sandwich, I must point out that this is the first time I have ever received a "true" Cuban made properly in this town and it tasted spectacular. My friend and I were quite happy that we were able to enjoy our experience at this O'Brion's location from the minute we walked through the door until we left feeling very satisfied that at least one place in Mount Pleasant actually has what it takes to earn the business and insure the return visit of its patrons.
Hey peeps DJ Mike the Knight here. Come join me tonight from 8-12 for some karaoke. Come have some hot wings and cold drinks. Hope to see ya there tonight.
Terrible service!! Food was okay but service was terrible (and I've been there several times). When I went looking for a manager one of the bouncers told me to "fuck off". I was fucking amazed!! Too bad because the food is not bad, but in Charleston where the restaurant business is soooo competative they won't be around for the long run. Skip this place and go to one of the MANY other places that have servers who actually give a shit about taking care of customers.
I ordered shrimp tacos. Horrible. Boiled tasteless cut up meat. Daughter ordered the grits and they were burnt.
Husband ordered fried shrimp that were supposed to be tossed in barbecue sauce. They were just plain. As a solution the waitress brought out a side container of barbecue. This plate was ok.
My son did like his fried chicken tenders and french fries. But honestly he likes anything fried.
Brother-in law had chicken wings that were cold.
Service was bad. Food took way too long. Had to find her for another beer or water and again for napkins.
Won't go back.
POS bar with only overweight dudes everytime I have been there. Good luck.
I've been to Condon's on a number of occasions, and find the food adequate, but certainly not Irish. The best thing about the place is the draft beer selection. Although expensive, it allows one an opportunity to sample beers from all over the world. The music at night is entertaining and peppy, but Condon's is definitely set up for the occasional tourist visit. It appears to be doing well in that regard.
Apparently the food is only good on weekends. We went last Monday and I had to send my steak back because it was nothing but fat. My husband's shrimp and grits were gritty. There was trash and flies in the windowsill while the waitstaff stood around and talked. Not to mention the table was sticky. Very dissatisfied.
I'm giving it three stars only because I know it can be more consistent. I know they had a rough start and I was hearing some really bad things about the food, but the last three times I've been in it's been really spot on good.
I think they had some serious kinks to work out, but as far as somewhere new, affordable and good to go on James Island, I've been loving it at Cha Cha's.
I mean: Pork Belly taco with roasted bananas and crunchy peanut butter!!
I like non traditional approaches to food and they are making some really interesting and good combinations.
This Place has the best food
, I'm giving it 4 stars based on my experience. The happy hour is excellent: plentiful free pool tables and $1 Tecates (and when those ran out, they upgraded to a Costa Rican beer called Imperial.) The food is very good, especially for a place that identifies itself as a sports bar. We enjoyed the homemade tortilla chips and salsa and had no trouble getting to an open pool table at 5 pm. It appears as though renovations may not be complete yet...but the Mexican Day of the Dead murals that adorn the walls help set a fun vibe, as do the hand-painted, glowing skulls on the bar. We really enjoyed our appetizer sampler--the surprise hit for me being the fried pita bread. The Bacon-wrapped jalapenos were quite tasty too. My wife, who used to tend bar at a Latin bar, was blown away by her first rocks margarita, but had to ask them to remake the 2nd one...meaning it depends on who makes it. (Nicolette made the best one.)
The most important thing we noticed is that we could truly feel that everyone there is trying very hard to make this something good. Dollar beers and good food will get me in the door once. The attitude and effort being put forth have already brought me back for repeat trips.
