They know how to throw a party. Saturday night in west ashley has a whole new vibe. This 1 st year for then has been questioned by all, would they make it? What a way to go forth into the new year. Great crowd, Great food, bartenders could be a little faster with the service, and a more organized for checking out. This bar was on fire, live music after the game, kept the crowd till closing time. CONGRATULATIONS TO THE NEW OWNER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! KEEP IT UP.
Very good. No complaints. Will definitely be back for wings and bourbon. Bartender lacked a bit of knowledge about drinks/beers, but again, no complaints. The guy who appeared to be the manager was very knowledgeable and filled in the blanks. Really liked the atmosphere and the bar itself. The temp regulated drafts/taps is a nice option. Wings are a bit pricey, but worth it. Half price day makes them well worth it. Looking forward to trying more menu items.
Great Place… With one exception
I really enjoyed the Griffon. Food was good and the beer selection was great. However, one bartender almost ruined it. It’s a small guy with black hair kind of spiked. Lee or Lloyd (I think). Wore a flower on his shirt and was very rude! Anyway, the place is great, but avoid this guy if possible…
This is the place to get great burgers and occasionally a beer. Every time I have gone my burgers have been great! The location is tucked away in a rundown shopping center, I drove past it 3 times before I actually found it. As far as the decor inside, its nothing great!! The decor is bland, bright lights in the dining area, fake flowers, cheap tablecloths, no pictures, no uniforms, and radio is always playing.
As far as the food goes, I don't care if I'm eating on a cheap tablecloth with fake flowers surrounding me, I'll eat there again and again. Now if I was going out for the night to grab some drinks with a few friends, I would go somewhere else.
Always had a great time here, sure its a bit touristy, but living here, its nice to go out and do something fun like this place. Great ocean views, great Jerk chicken and they serve up a good solid breakfast too.
Only complaint would be that service while fair, is almost always very slow. The restaurant def runs on island time, but heck, with a view like that who cares.
FCB, they OPEN the doors at 9pm (usually, but sometimes earlier for "early" shows...depends on the band). Don't expect the band to start when the doors open, that's just silly. If you go to a sporting event would you expect them to open the gates at kick-off/first pitch/tip-off time? Sorry you won't be back, they have some of the best music in town at (usually) very reasonable door prices.
I took off one star because you cannot get a PBR for $1.50 anymore. It's $2 during happy hour (which ends too early, IMO...and I'm not alone in that). Will I stop going? No way! Too much good music and too many good people for that.
(Perhaps someone could rewrite the description to reflect the raised drink prices...?)
The food here is GREAT! Wonderful selection and perfectly-sized portions. I live nearby and I don't eat there often enough! I normally sit at the bar and the bartenders are always friendly and talkative - quick to make a suggestion, depending on what you're in the mood for. Great wine list. The atmosphere is very nice, but still comfortable if you're having a casual night. Highly recommended!
[And for "Chef Lisa" who gave this place such a terrible review: If you were REALLY a chef, you would know there is no such word as "eatable." The word you were looking for is "edible." Your welcome.]
I like the new chef and management. It's much better these days.
I have ordered take-out from the IceHouse on several occasions and have no complaints. The food was very good, and reasonably priced. Service has always been cheerful and attentive. I will return again.
I have been to the bar and will return again tonight for the second time. I loved it and am looking forward to another great night!
Great place for karaoke. Doesn't matter if you can sing or not, just don't be shy. It is an older crowd but people of all ages show up and guess what? everone gets along.
Just came back from a visit to the local pub Madra Rua. Had the prime rib sandwich and and some strongbow ciders. Pretty tasty (especially with the hand cut fries (mine with vinegar)). Wife had the corn beef and cabbage that she said was good but not a wow. Atmosphere is great, people are great. Typical pub food. Will definitely go back. (I've got many more beverages to try!)
My wife and I went to Dublin Down this past Saturday and were pleasantly surprised by the food and the service as well as the authetic pub atmosphere. Its been a long time since we were greeted as early and often as we were from various members of the staff that night...on the way out, we were stopped by one of the owners who said "thank you so much for stopping here tonight...we really appreciate your business"...there was no doubt that he meant what he said. Hopefully, this one will be around for awhile.
Better than average pizza, pricey beer ... Not five stars but a good four on their better days.
I've been to all three O'Brion's, and have enjoyed my experience each time. They have a great beer selection, attentive staff, and great food. Awesome place to watch the game!
Enjoyed the live music, food and beer. Dog friendly place with very friendly staff, we will certainly be back.
Been there twice in the last two weeks, first with a big group for a business occasion, went back this week with a friend because the first visit was so good. Seems they've changed their menu, it's smaller, but I think they're focusing more on quality than on quantity of items. Both times, the service was really good - the wait staff was attentive & knowledgeable, but not in your face. Sometimes with a big group it's not as great as when you're with a smaller party, but they were good & really welcoming. They were even willing to change a few things, & all the food came out quickly. With the big group, had a bunch of appetizers, all of them were really good, especially the edamame & spinach dip. They have some great sushi, some of the best we've had, some were kind of spicy, excellent. With my friend, we shared some of the small plates, the tuna was a bit overdone, but the hanger steak was delicious, also more sushi.
We also had a few of their specialty drinks, the Thai Basil Lemonade is great - pretty creative. AND, the outdoor patio is awesome - this place will be on our list of favorite restaurants.
Best lunch on DI, hands down. Reasonably priced considering the portion size (I took half of my huge $13 sandwich home!) They always have some rare beer on tap.
Definitely the burgers are awesome! I ordered two, one for there, one to take home (the yank, the hot shit) and both were awesome and juicy. I like mine pretty rare, and it was cooked wonderfully. However, another member of our party ordered a medium rare and it came out lookin fresh outta the grinder. They took it back graciously though and fixed him a new burger. I was impressed by the beer selection, though I admittably don't know much about that...It was loud and busy and the waitstaff was only okay, but it's a burger and bar joint - i expect that sort of environment. The hostess was a little flighty, and the to-go burger was plainly forgotten about - but they got it straight to me. I would def go back, and rank it as the best burger place I've tried yet in the area, though the service could use a slightly happier personality.
Neil's serves stellar steak dishes and the service is terrific. The wine list is appropriately varied and reasonably priced. Every time I've dined there, the bar area is lively - looks like a great gathering place for locals in the 17 North area. It's also really nice that Neil himself usually stops in at your table and checks on your meal.
