Argh,Old Blackbeard here to talk about me favorite subject.....Certain types of manure used to be transported (as everything was back then) by ship. In dry form it weighs a lot less, but once water (at sea) hit it. It not only became heavier, but the process of fermentation began again, of which a by-product is methane gas.
As the stuff was stored below decks in bundles you can see what could (and did) happen; methane began to build up below decks and the first time someone came below at night with a lantern. BOOOOM!
Several ships were destroyed in this manner before it was discovered what was happening.
After that, the bundles of manure where always stamped with the term "S.H.I.T" on them which meant to the sailors to "Ship High In Transit." In other words, high enough off the lower decks so that any water that came into the hold would not touch this volatile cargo and start the production of methane. You can fill me tip jar to show thanks for the info.
That's right southernchick80 you tell them.
I think that if you are mad that you were kicked out you need to put on your big girl panties and stop complaining and flat out making up immature lies. #1 Wally would never allow drugs to float around in his bar (HIS BUSINESS) #2 All the bartendera watch out for the other patrons and the bar to make sure no drunk idiot is going to cause a fight or get in the car and kill someone on the way home. I find it very funny that we have so many immature idiots out there who cannot handle themselves and when called out reduce themselves to getting online and bad mouthing a place that is freaking awesome. Hope you have a wonderful day and can one day grow up!
Well, I've always made it a mission to avoid dicks and I count Gregg as my favorite bartender. Ever. So there.
He will be glad to kick to your ass out (and so will any of the other staff members) if you can't mind your manners; however, he'll let you keep your croakies if you don't sass him too much.
I stay away from the Mill because of all the drugs floating around.I also think Greg is the biggest dick head on the planet.
I am a bartender and I frequent The Mill. Actually, The Mill reminds me of a warm, delicious baked potatoe. The staff there is awesome. I always feel at home. It is quite SPUDOINKLEY!!!!! Robby is adorable, Paula is a sweetheart, Starla is to be envied, and old Blackbeard is truly the best guy I know. Watch out though, Blackbeard does eat children and rednecks!!!! Thank God and Wally for the mill. Pirates Rule!!!!
Argh, what kind of scurvy dog is running me name in the mud.I admit I've hornswaggled a customer or two but always bring the service with a crocodile smile.If I catch that scallywag I'll make them dance the hempen jig!
The Mill smells like a giant fart.
I'm a regular. I go to the Mill at least 3 days a week for happy hour. I can vouch for the fact that the Mill is a bar, not a nightclub, not a place to show your face around, not a pick-up joint. It's the kind of place where anyone is welcome. My husband and I we're just there on Wednesday with three of our closest friends and his grandparents. We we're a mix of professional, school teacher, restaurant owner, and retirees. We we're all comfortable, we all found a drink to match our tastes, and we also enjoyed a little hummus and some chips and dip. This bar is where we bring contacts and have short meetings. In fact, I also hosted a fundraiser in this bar to raise money for locks of love. They are kind, generous, accepting people who make people feel welcome. I love all the bartenders, especially Greg, with the hair, and Miss Annie who just works Monday happy hour and has been working there before the bar had it's makeover and new ownership. And if all this was not enough, they have great live music and never charge a cover. I am a die hard Mill fan!
We've all had bad experiences in various places. Who's to say you weren't wasted and didn't need another round?? The Mill is what it is. A great place to escape the everyday Charleston scene. Always a handful of bad ass regulars, ready to sit and have a drink with you. Always a solid bartender or two ready to serve ya up a cold one, and generally some live music (which seems to be extremely under appreciated in this town now-a-day) kicking every night!!! How can someone knock a bar that supports local art as much as The Mill?? Granted you can smoke in there...if ya don't dig, ya don't have to go in!!! Welcome to North Chuck, where the local Gov doesn't sticks it's nose into everything a private business can and can't do...Grow up, and race back to City Bar...oh wait, that s*&thole closed down...how about anywhere else on East Bay Street? less Big John's of course (love ya!)..May The Mill rock on!! Ol' Blackbeard too!!
I came into town as part of a touring band and had probably the best experience of the four weeks we spent on the road. The staff from the owners to the bartenders were all extremely friendly and helpful and took great care of us. As one who has spent seven years working in bars (and many more frequenting them), I thought it was an ace staff top to bottom with great service, perfect drinks and just the right kind of food, in price and selection, for a hungry band on the road. They handled the lone out-of-line drunk you're going to experience in any crowded bar with professionalism AND authority, a hard balance to achieve.
Don't mean to gush, but The Mill is and will always be in my mind an oasis on the road.
The Mill is awesome. I don't know who has gotten a bug up their ass but the staff there is always quick and nice as hell. I would (and on many occasions have) welcome any of them into my home because that's the way they treat me and everyone else who does not act like a dickhead that goes in there. Those people rock.
The Mill is a great local bar with good food (especially considering their limited resources), a great beer selection, and fantastic local and regional music, that covers a huge variety of genres. The staff is fast and friendly, but also ALWAYS fair. They will know your drink of choice from the first time you walk through the door, and will have it ready for you, before you can even get to the bar (EVERY time).......but they also will not hesitate to kick you out, if you should happen to turn into that drunk A-hole that deserves it...regardless of who you are. Rest assured however, you can walk back through the door the very next day and the bartender will have your drink ready for you...even if it's the same bartender that kicked your drunk behind out, the night before.
Never had a bad time at the Mill, agree totally with CEdge. If a bartender anywhere is mad at someone, it's usually because they deserve it! Like the atmosphere of the Mill, it's what an actual BAR is supposed to be like!
The Mill RAWKS! It is def. one of the coolest places to hang in Charleston..the staff is on their toes and ready to serve...the have GREAT music...cool retro furniture... local art on the walls...and the food is actually purdy good...if you want to escape the douchbaggery of Charleston, and go somewhere cool, this is the place
You have to be out of your mind to even set foot in a disgusting smokehole like that. Zero stars.
one of the best bars in charleston, without a doubt. i love the hairy guy
When I go to the Mill, they have my drink ready for me before I even sit down. Thanks to Greg (aka Blackbeard) and the rest of the Mill staff for being so fantastic!
Some of the reviews I just read were so outrageous... Lets all grow up...Everyone gets served at the Mill with a smile and in a timely manner...Ol'Black beard or whatever childish nickname I read is my favorite bartender in Charleston. Love the Mill ...love Park Circle all round, pool tables, music...amazing art all over the place..an outdoor deck! You can smoke inside!!! I would like to put it out there...noones ever not been served for not being liked...but if your an ASSHOLE..no assumptions...then maybe I can see why they might not, but thats anybar anywhere! lmao I recommend that bar to everyone and get thanked constantly for the great heads up!! Come in and maybe I'll get you a shot...thats how it is there shots for everyone..have a good time... can't wait..trivia night tonight...I'll change your mind...
I love the kind of bar that is equipped with the type of staff that have your drink ready for you before you even sit down. I love a bar with a bitchin' juke-box. I love a bar with huge , tasty nachos. I love a bar that has more than dudes wearing the 'Charleston Uniform' behind it. All these reasons are why I love The Mill. Oh, and Greg, of course. The Mill has Greg and that, too is why I love the Mill!
