Interesting - I like the because it is greasy, just like the ones I grew up on back in NY.
Also- what happened to all of the other comments that used to be here - why were they deleted?
Love it!! Great people great service. Wings were amazing
My favorite taco truck, hands down. Cheap and extremely filling, as well as plenty of choices.
It would be fantastic if you could just add RightOnQue barbeque to your vendors! We appreciate your article, we really enjoy being a food vendor at the Charleston Farmers Market!
RightOnQue food vendor uses Joseph Fields Farms vegetables and fruits in our weekly Saturday offerings at the Charleston Farmers Market (Marion Square). We buy his produce for personal use as well, the fresh organic farming really is evident in the flavor! We appreciate their business!!
I don't enjoy Norms at all. Mediocre burgers and pizza that tastes and smells rotten. But it's near the college, which is why I think it's popular.
Great pizza. I very much enjoy this pizza. Not greasy at all and a good selection of toppings. Crust tastes just like mom used to make.
I've had terrible experiences every time I've been to this Cinebarre, and I've given way too many chances. The first time I went, the food came out cold. We chalked it up to them being busy and decided to let it pass. The second time we went, we limited ourselves to just a plate of fries. Who can mess up fries? We wrote off the food for good once they also came out stale and cold. The third time we went, I stuck to just candy because there is no way you can mess up Milk Duds! Wrong. The waiter walked by my ticket three times and STILL never took it! Considering he actually stopped in front of my ticket and still ignored my order made matters even worse. Even so, I decided to give them one more chance.
This last time I went was the absolute worst experience I have ever had in any restaurant. I stuck with two beers before the show started, a fail-proof route. Everything was fine until it reached the last thirty minutes and I sat waiting for my card and receipt to be returned. I spent the last part of my movie experience stressing over where my credit card was and how everyone else in my row had theirs except me. By the time the movie ended I still had no card. Turns out she had given it to someone sitting two seats down from me.
Alright, so by now I'm throwing in my towel for Cinebarre. I wrote on my receipt that she had given my credit card to the wrong person and wrote a line through the tip. That was the first time in my life that I've never left a tip, and coming from someone who has worked food and bev for ten years that must mean something.
I go to check my bank statement a few days later, and the waitress wrote her own tip in.
I repeat : SHE WROTE HER OWN TIP IN.
After I had left a note saying she had given my card to the wrong person.
So my waitress went behind my back and stole her tip even after I had explained why I wasn't leaving one.
To make matters worse, it took me three days of calling to actually get ahold of the manager. When she finally found my receipt and admitted that she had in fact written in her own tip, all she said was sorry. In no way, shape, or form did she offer anything to convince me to come back or even that the waitress would be reprimanded.
Like I mentioned before, I've worked in the food and bev industry for ten years and NEVER, EVER is it acceptable to steal your own tip.
I recommend never going to Cinebarre unless you want to deal with terrible food, even worse service, and incompetent managers!
Visited Paige's Incredible Edibles twice, will be back for many more lunches. You get a really tasty sandwich with a small side for less than $7. I've had the cherry chicken salad and the turkey mango sandwiches. Foccacia Pizza is next on the list.
Went for the last time on Mother's Day weekend. The food was poor along with the service. We used to love the place...now we will leave it for the tourists.
Its Okay for SC, but by no means an "Authentic Jewish-Style deli" unless that style modifier means "Oh they have some Jewish deli items done passably. Okay, nothing special, nothing worth a drive for, but if you live in the area it works
Dinner last night at the Fat Hen was a pleasure. My good friend, her mother, and I enjoyed big, succulent mussels with bacon and artichokes; using our bread to soak up the "butter soup" left over was not only delicious but fun. The Coq Au Vin was rich but not overwhelming and the tender pieces of butternut squash tossed with the hericovert was delightful. The Shrimp and Crab was a great surprise; this dish had just enough spice, just enough butter, and just enough plump pink shrimp. We didn't make it to dessert but the Blackberry Cobbler was enticing, I'm sure we would have had it but we had movie tickets.
Our server was attentive, timely, and warm. He provided a great suggestion for wine pairing, anticipated our needs, and although busy, was relaxed and friendly. This staff is really a team and you can see that the servers, server assistants, and host staff make every effort for the dining experience to be seamless.
Oh yeah, there is bacon: cubed bacon, bacon lardons, and crispy bacon. The celebration of bacon is winding down, but The Fat Hen uses the bacon as a flavor enhancer (a little salt here, a little smoke there, a little meaty bit here, a little fatty bit there), the bacon doesn't overwhelm the accompanying flavors.
I live in Goose Creek and I will gladly drive to John's Island to enjoy this gem of a restaurant again.
When you are on your own its food first, decor second. Kudos to a guy that is truly a hands on owner, a bada$$ sushi chef and a humble human being.Keep on doing what you do Sean.
went on Mothers Day, food was nothing but average, drinks were poor and service nothing special either, not going back..
This place closed it's doors over a year ago...but it was a great Venue to hear great musicians.......
This is why I don't review on here any more. You give a thoughtful honest opinion and some PBR drinking idiot slams you for too much information. They would rather see reviews like "This place rocks, can't beat dollar PBR's"
I read brewengineers review and am looking forward to trying this establishment. 3 stars by the way is a recommended place and a very good rating. What negativity was in the review, it seemed honest and well thought out. The majority of the people on this site throw 5 stars around so that it has become utterly meaningless. 5 stars is the place if you are visiting for only one day, you have to get there.
1 star- acceptable quality
2 star- good quality
3 star- very good quality
4 star- superior quality
5 star- exceptional in every way- food drink decor service
there are 232 four star and above restaurants in city paper's guide. Honestly, there are probably less than 10. In Charleston though, we have 5 star bagel shops??
We here at Craftsmen appreciate all reviews and comments, both positive and negative. We are brand new and know that we have plenty of room to grow into our identity. I do feel that we are offering a very good product that is unique to our dining community by focusing on offering a good selection of beers and casual, well executed food that is intended to elevate the drinking experience. As far as pricing is concerned, we feel that we have placed ourselves on the moderate end of the spectrum, but rare beers and specialty beers are always going to cost more. The beer community is a friendly one, full of camaraderie and a desire for everyone to succeed in the quest to make people happy. That is something we believe in at Craftsmen, too. So thanks to everyone who has been in or will come in the future, and know that we are listening and working hard to become a great addition to an already fabulous dining scene.

Really? I don't believe I "bashed" them at all. I apologize for not remembering the menu to the exact wording. So I didn't correctly state the sections properly. That doesn't change the fact that they separate hoppy beers, then mix in other categories. What is "mash" anyways? There weren't many specialties on there. Just some random normal brews. Honestly, it wasn't negative criticism, just a bit of confusion I thought could be corrected to help people find a certain beer. I never stated there were 5 sections, BTW.
Also, I am not exactly well versed in french cuisine, nor were the other people eating with us. No one was really upset about the egg on top, and it is not really a negative comment. The overcooked pork belly was a bit disappointing, but didn't hurt the sandwich too much.
From your knowledge of everything on the menu, and your joining this site just to attack my review, I can guess that you either work there or have a connection to this place. Why do people feel that they need to attack honest reviews on CCP? I didn't dislike this place, but felt the beer selection could use some work. I also was kind about the food, as it is a new place. I didn't give this place 3 stars because of the menu or an egg on top of the sandwich. It got 3 stars because it is a beer bar that has mostly basic beers from different breweries (a complaint I have heard from many people who have visited), and the food wasn't amazing (flavor wise, nothing to do with layout). It also got 3 stars because of pricing being a touch high. I had every intention to return after it has been open for a couple months and seeing if things were really falling into place. At that time, I would add a new review.
Brewengineer, though the other commenter certainly showed his ass, your review really could use work. I say that because you're bashing them about things you don't even understand. I frequent that establishment since opening. Firstly, their beer menu is not at all broken into flavor profiles. They're categorized in 4, not 5 sections; ipa, locals, sessionables, and "mash". The mash is just one offs and specialties that didn't fit into the other 3. There is no "malt forward" section that you described so there goes all that griping you had about them not fitting out the window.
Secondly, that sandwich you had is called a croque-madame. It's an old French dish and meant to be eaten with fork and knife.
Basically, your negativity in the review stems from your own misunderstandings and lack of knowledge.
"Fucking obnoxious review."
What is obnoxious about writing a thorough review with likes and dislikes, coming from someone who has worked in the industry and been pushing/drinking/brewing craft beer for over a decade? Maybe I should have just used your intelligent review model, and stuck to three sentences and no real content. That will really help the restaurant improve things. Maybe next time you bless someone with your own criticism, you could actually just add a review or contribute something meaningful.
