Great wings and service in a fun and relaxing environment. No one in Charleston can compete with the amount of TVs and Big Screens they have. Wings, beer, sports. WOW!
Ugh! This place is AWFUL. It is the worst bar I have ever been to. The people are not only painful to look at, the staff is rude and unprofessional. You would think that someone that is paying YOUR bills would be treated with a little more respect. I can't understand why anyone would want to go there on a regular basis, I guess if your a skank or a redneck, wigger or biker you might want to. But for the rest of us who like good service, and a friendly enviornment, this is most def NOT the place to be!!
Art's is definitely one of the best kept secrets is Charleston. Bartenders are friendly and the crowd vibe is very eclectic. Outside deck is amazing, and you never know who you'll meet there! Definitely the best neighborhood bar in Charleston.
The atmosphere of Madra Rua is so very authentic. The food is ok, but the food is not why you come to this place. You come for the beer, the soccer on TV, and the small table's tucked away corners and alcoves. It 100% reminds me of the many little pubs I visited in Temple Bar.
As for the food, it's typical pub food with a few more authentic offerings like Irish beef stew and Shepard's pie (both served with soda bread). Having had both of them, they were a tad bit salty but I suppose that is on purpose so you will drink more beer.
We went there and they would not give us a to-go box for some ridiculous reason...Then the waitress insulted my husband.
This place is grungy and stinky.
We call it KC Struggling's....
First of all let me start by saying the owner of said bar is the most ignorant egotistical male pig i have ever had the misfortune of speaking to! his opinion of women has got to be the most degrading insulting thing i have ever heard in my entire life! He said "women can't do real work, bartenting is a man's job" ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! i wont even put all the nasty things he said about women, but needless to say we are all whinney crying bitches....according to him!
I went out to the Parrot for my first time friday night, caught a great band top jimmy. Learned to play shuffle board with some sweet people. Had the best service ever from a girl named Danielle, and even had a great conversation with the guy at the door. I've been downtown, and out in West Ashley, and none of the places have the atmosphere that the Parrot offers, or the mix of people. It's definately going to become my favorite bar here in Carolina.
2 THUMBS UP! This is one of the best places to meet friends or family for a fun night. The live music is great, food is awesome, and the employees and owner are a fun lot and very accomodating!
I was there sat nite. Great mixed crowd, friendly folks, good beer. This place has an edge to it. Appreciate it for what it is...
Is it really the worst? We are talking about Ladson.
Good, casual food and great service coupled with a laid back atmosphere. Skip the pretentious downtown and island bars.
During the day the food rocks and the service is quick. It's fun for a friday pool session. Keep an eye out for Miss Annie...she'll school you in 8-ball with a quickness...
Wow - bad food. Bad atmosphere. Bad service.
What more could you ask for?
The worst bar in Ladson and there are a lot of bad bars in Ladson!!
wow...I think Chucktown Wangster needs to get laid
Art's might not be for everyone, especially those that fit the sterotypical "Mt Pleasant Snobs". That said, Art's ROCKS! The food is simply terrific. Anything on the menu that I have tried has been better than I had even hoped. That their wings are not widely recognized as among the very best in Mt Pleasant, can only be classified as a crime. They are exceptional! And I have regularly eaten them from Wild Wings, Kicken Chicken and Blues.
I have never been disappointed by anything I ordered. Inside booths are usually free due to the no smoking ban in Mt Pleasant and the atmosphere is casual and comfortable. You never know what might be playing on their jukebox but if you like a variety of music, you'll at least hear a few things that you thought you had forgotten and some you may not have heard.
Two thumbs down due to a bad customer service experience. This place does have a great crowd, plenty of drinks, and good wings, but after leaving our credit card there and going back the day after to get it, the bartender "josh" was really rude to my wife and very condescending towards her. It was such a bad experience we will be talking with the manager demanding that something be done. - agent.guerry -
www.judemichaels.com From playing the cello in the third grade in Muncie, Indiana to Cafe´ Loco, Jude Michaels has literally come a long way. Jude landed at Tybee Island in the early 90’s. He’s been a regular act at Cafe´ Loco for the past eight years, although he can hardly be called the “house band”. Jude prefers to expand his audience base by playing in relatively nearby venues – Charleston, Hilton Head, Atlanta and downtown Savannah. As he puts it, “Why put your eggs in one basket when you can put them in thirty baskets?” The son of the head of the Music Department at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana (alma mater of David Letterman), Jude has been involved in music basically his entire life. Sadly, his mother is deaf and has never heard him play. However, there was never a problem having band practice at his home. He started with the cello, later mastered the bass and piano in elementary school and played in the school orchestra in fourth grade. At age 14, he ran away from home to play in a rock and roll band, but found that he had to have a day job and could pursue his music at night. He had no contact with his family for several years, but returned home around the time of his twenty-first birthday (mainly to get his prized cello). In California, he learned to play guitar literally “on the streets”. He later went to a ski resort in Colorado for a few months, and then on to Chicago, then to Atlanta. During his time in Atlanta, he got involved with landscaping and his music was on hold – mainly playing on weekends. His instrument of choice at that time was the guitar and he played numerous little bars in Buckhead, Decatur and Little Five Points. During his landscaping career, the Governor’s mansion was a client and it was there that his music career was really launched. He got big private parties and was able to devote his energies full time to music. In 1991, he went to Hilton Head - thinking “this is the place to be”. Unfortunately, it turned out to be a “commercial wasteland” and he ended up on River Street in Savannah playing at just about every bar there. He found Tybee Island and lived in an RV at the campground until he purchased a home in 1999. He continued to work sporatically in Atlanta; the Olympics in 1996 was a boost to his career. He continued to travel to Charleston and Isle of Palms, and found his home at Cafe´ Loco and Tybee Island where he has played for the last eight years. In his solo shows, Jude provides comic relief in addition to the music. Apparently, he had aspirations to be a comedian, but bombed badly. He now has some gigs at colleges, where he showcases his original music. This arrangement works well with his appearances at Cafe´ Loco, which are one to two weekends per month. Jude is a believer of the fact that “you never know who is in the audience” and that special musical connection could occur this way. His music is also played on numerous XM radio stations and on WRHQ on special request Sundays. Jude is most interested now in songwriting and expects to have a new CD out within six months or so. He describes the music as “Americana” – a combination of folk, jazz, rock and roll. He realizes that his music requires a special niche in which to thrive, but he is not planning to compromise his music in any way. a “Renaissance Man” who has returned to the design aspect of landscaping and also has been buying houses, fixing them up and selling them. He does the work himself and is quite proud of his accomplishments.
Well this is NOT the bar at Dorchester Lanes. This is a small little road side bar. Very nice people with A LOT of regulars. It is a private club. When we showed up we had to pay to join and wait 24 hours. But there was a nice few people that signed us in as guests. Darts, Pool and shuffle board are on the games menu here. The Karoke was not really a stage area but more of a anywhere in the bar kinda thing. Kinda Neat. If your not a smoker do not go. Other than that a nice place.
