Re: “Zero Restaurant + Bar

This is my new favorite restaurant in the city. The food was amazing - unique, extremely well thought out and done, and an overall gastronomic delight. To top it off, the staff was knowledgeable, friendly and personable bringing together the total presentation in a way you just don't find very often. I was with a group from various locations across the country. There were numerous comments that this meal ranked at or near the very top of all meals they'd ever had - both here and abroad I couldn't have been prouder of this local gem. Can't wait to go back.

Re: “Roses and Ruins

So funny, I seemed to have the same problem at the one in Summerville. Had to reschedule due to the drawing not being completed, and after 2 weeks, half a grand for a thigh piece smaller than my hand. No wonder it seems like on one is ever there to get a tattoo

Re: “Montreux Bar and Grill

Warning: please do not go to this place. I have been here three times and each time there has been some kind of drama surrounding the bar area. I have never been in any kind of altercation at a bar and unfortunately the general manager at the bar was completely rude and classless.. Please do not waste your time and energy coming to this place, Downtown Summerville has a lot more to offer than the terrible service given here. Overall, very displeased and appalled by the low level of professionalism and service at this place.

Re: “Poogan's Porch

Never ate there and probably never will but you ignorant people who write reviews really need to edit before hitting "send'. Your spelling and grammar is atrocious. I hope that if you can afford a meal out that you all have at least a 2nd grade education......

Re: “Southern Season

Even with 40% off, their prices are high. I do buy very specialty items from them when cooking special meals, but everyday purchases generally come from HT or Publix. I'll definitely go to the downtown store, as it is much closer to Summerville and does not have the traffic.

Re: “JK Automotive

I was on my way home from the beach with a van load of kids, age 4 to 14, when suddenly I knew we were in trouble. My van started to shake and lost acceleration. It was extremely HOT outside, and the idea of being stranded on the highway with all of these kids was terrifying to me. The staff at JK were 100% helpful, honest, and skillful in their handling of the situation. After less than 2 hours, I was back on the road. Rather than take advantage of the situation, and gouge prices, knowing that I was desperate, they took care of everything at a more than fair price. These people are excellent at what they do, and ethical in their management and prices.

Philly born and raised. This place takes a backseat to no one. I have never had a better cheesesteak. Period.

Re: “Sip Tap Room

To help with the throttling of "Matt Gallo", he was created on May 18th and managed to have lunch at both locations on that same day (look it up, it's hilarious).

I've been there twice, and I liked the selection and the bar service was fine. It's on James Island (I've lived here for seventeen years), and I applaud a place when it takes a real crack at it. I can't speak to anything but the list and the aforementioned bar service, but if there's Ballast Point on tap, and Green Flash, Stone, two Terrapins and two Founders in bottle form--and these are all IPAs.

But these are also grocery store beers, and I have a hard time paying six bucks for a ubiquitous Goose Island or a Sweetwater IPA, four times what I pay at the Teeter. I'm certainly not paying for the sweet vistas of asphalt and the muted silhouettes of an electrical substation and a Money Man Pawn, and if I'm reading some of these reviews right, and a possible response to this review might be "if you don't like it, stay home", be careful..I have a screened-in porch, a 60" TV, and a $14 growler of Jade. More later when I try the food.

P.S. "lovesdogs6957" was created on May 17th and has one review to date...

Re: “Sip Tap Room

To continue with the "sock puppet" thrashing, "Matt Gallo" was created on May 18th and had lunch at both locations at once (look it up, it's hilarious). I've stopped in twice, and they do have a good selection. Given that it's James Island (and I've lived here for seventeen years), I applaud giving it a real shot. I can't speak to anything but the beer list and service at the bar (which was just fine), but I'm happy with a list with Ballast Point on tap and Green Flash, Stone, and two Founders in bottle form. It's expensive, though--I have a hard time paying six bucks for a ubiquitous Goose Island or a Sweetwater IPA when I pay a quarter of that at the grocery store. I'm not paying for the sweet vistas of asphalt and the silhouette of an electrical substation and Money Man Pawn. If any of the previous posts are true and the upper echelons of management are saying, "if you don't like it, just stay home"..be careful, because I have a screened-in porch, a 60" TV, and a growler of Jade for $14. More later when I try the food.

Re: “Philly's Cheesesteaks

Philly's is amazing! I've never had a problem anytime I've gone and the food is super delicious! The wait staff are always friendly and the wait time can be long depending on when you go, but it's so worth it!

Re: “Sip Tap Room

The most amusing sock puppet post was the one that said probably the best beer selection in the city. They might not even have the best selection in their own part of town, let alone the many, MANY other places around Charleston with a better selection (Edmund's Oast, Craft Conundrum, Closed For Business, Gene's, The Barrel, etc).

Re: “McCrady's

Disappointing in one word is the experience we just had at this highly over-rated restaurant. We are locals (26 and 36 years) and very familiar with downtown dining options. We walked over from the Dock Street after a late afternoon Spoleto performance. We did not order "cocktails" or a first course (which seemed to personally affront our waitress). Long story short we waited over an hour for our entrees after being told by the waitress that she "forgot" to "hit send" on our order. The entrees finally arrived; I ordered swordfish which tasted more fishy than what my husband brings home straight off the boat. I sent it back and declined to order another entree because of the long wait.

The manager came over to our table and did comp my husband's entree. He then proceeded to very arrogantly and condescendingly inform me that the crab roe was responsible for the fishy taste and further enlightened me by telling me it was an acquired taste. Of course the implication being that I am not nearly sophisticated enough to appreciate fishy crab roe. I understand that the staff and chef do not care about this bad experience because they do not need or want our business. We will not return.

Re: “Sip Tap Room

So I guess I'm a sucker. I saw the bad reviews and figured it couldn't be THAT bad. And if it was I thought it might be fun to see. It's exactly like the negative reviews say. Sorry. Make changes now, before it's too late!

And c'mon, the 5 star reviews from people who obviously are connected to the place (i.e. have only posted one review or 2 and the other was for the Sip in Mt. P.)? That's so 2007!

Re: “Sip Tap Room

Two of the 5 star reviewers here have exactly one post on this site. The other two 5 star reviewers have exactly two posts each, their others being 5 star reviews for the Mt P Sip. Nice try. Now go do your sidework.

Re: “Taste of Thai

I have always had excellent service here. The ambiance is appropriate and the food is great. It is one of my favorite restaurants, and I'm so glad I don't have to leave West Ashley to eat there!
