......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......while munching down on 'a hamburger & fries .....yummy....
......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....:)
I've been twice and think it's a nice little neighborhood place. The crust on our pizzas was crackly and black in a few places, which I liked. The Del Re was salty goodness, and my toddler loved his cheese and fried egg pizza. I wasn't as excited about their take on sausage and mushroom, but it still was perfectly fine. I wouldn't visit Crust for a special occasion, necessarily, but I'm glad to have another solid option for a weekday lunch or dinner.
La Nortena is El Jefe in Charleston.
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??
