Tasty, nicely flavoured food, no smoking, good service and nice and clean inside. I do wish the benches had cushions on them.
The chips are too greasy and the salsa is nothing special. Give me Zia's salsa please. But the dishes were delicious and I will be back.
I would like to see a special showing off the chef's talent so I have something to look forward to. I'm happy to pay a bit more for it !!
I've been there three times. Had the veggie burger, chicken sandwich, and chicken and waffles. Everything was pretty good. What I really loved were the red velvet cupcakes.
I went to a party catered by Joey at the restaurant this weekend. The food was not just a home run, but hit for the cycle. Short ribs, fried chicken, deep-fried ravioli, the fresh salad, collards, corn bread... everything. I even loved the decor. Note: this is even without having their famous beignets!
Were it not for the ridiculous rainstorm Sunday morning, I would have been there twice in 12 hours! If the food quality carries through to their core breakfast/lunch hours then they'll get another review at five stars!
I was hesitant at first to try this restaurant because of a bad review by a friend. I probably should not have listened to her (she also thinks Monza has the best pizza in town) because this place is seriously good. If you are a fan of Thai food and don't want to cry over the price tag at Basil up the street then Tasty Thai is the place for you. Lunch is a seriously good deal and you can dial up the heat as much as you want (I've been brave enough to go for the 4 out of 5 level of heat and believe me that will scorch your mouth). The place is huge so you never have to wait for a table and the service is great; I've never had a problem with any of the waitresses. I would recommend the Red Curry, it's my favorite. If you haven't yet, I would head down to Tasty Thai and grab a great lunch at a decent price.However, if you think you are something special and ask for the level 5 out of 5 heat be ready to eat your words: during eating and especially hours later.
Wow, I'm generally surprised by the reviews this place is getting. I hate a tourist trap just as much as the next guy, but Joseph's frankly is not in that category. Yes, tourists stroll into the place (probably the best decision they'll make while in Charleston), but if you're about the food you will put up with the slow-walking wide eyed yankee/Ohio morons. The two previous reviews were bad, and both went for some variation of breakfast (no, brunch is something only loved by south of Broaders and those attempting to emulate them and is not another dining time), so I'm guessing some good advice would be to not go for breakfast and/or do not get an omelette. I recently went for lunch and believe me it was crowded. My friend and I were promptly seated and this fast talking no BS waiter got our drinks immediately. I had a sandwich with some cheesy name with "Forest" in it. One of the best sandwiches I've had in Charleston and my friend boasted the same about his (something with cranberries I think). I definitely recommend this place and would gladly navigate the lines of ostentatious fat-cats to eat there again.
I like Santi's a lot. The Camarónes a la Diabla are very good. My only complaint would be that I prefer the salsa at La Hacienda.
What a memorable night. We arrived just a bit early for our reservations and waited about 15 minutes in the bar. As we waited Brett Mckee introduced himself and two gentlemen uprooted from their seats for my wife and my friends wife. Wow that hasn't happened much in the last 40 years. I must say the food was great and cooked to perfection. The service was outstanding. Valet parking was great since it was raining. The restaurant is really a different flare and I personally would recommend eating at the Oaks for anyone visiting town. Best of luck to you Brett. Thanks for the memories.
Delicious fish tacos! At first I was a little hesitant, but the counter girl helped me to make my decision, and I'm so glad she did! I decided to go with the regular fish "on a crunch" (crunchy corn shell) - amazing! Also had a spicy chicken taco on soft flour, which was also very tasty. My boyfriend had 2 steak tacos and said the steak was good, like small bitesize steak pieces - very tender. Great prices too. I really love this place!
Unique flavors of wings and they are delicious! My fav is the rasberry sauced wings. The staff is really down to earth and friendly. I'd avoid dining at lunch. I have heard the service lacks at that time of day. Great low key spot for evening!
The beers were plentiful and cold. The staff were pleasant and very attentive! The food was very good, but it did take a while to be served. Hey, we were really too busy unwinding after a hectic work week to notice! We can't wait to go back this Friday!
I was there and loved the performace. It was VERY hot though! - JA
O, EVO, let me count the ways!
Pros: Fresh ingredients straight from the farm to your plate. Salads are delicious, Pizza crust is cooked to perfection, toppings make everything come together. Staff are friendly and attentive. Location is clean and bright.
Cons: Wish you were open more often and a tad bit cheaper.
A must for anyone...Will return and recommend to friends.
One of the highlights of the trip!
We had dinner here and were pleased with the flavors. I had the tomato soup and grilled cheese. The soup was a bit spicy for my taste buds, but good consistency. My husband had the pork sliders and said they were spicy too. The atmosphere was quaint.
I thoroughly enjoyed my lunch at Laura Alberts. Not too long ago, I met my girlfriends for a glass of wine. They have quite a selection, but what I enjoyed was the relaxed atmosphere and ambiance. I will be back for their Wednesday dinner! The menu looks fabulous.
Dj Miketech is what makes the saloon the place to be on the weekends. The bar staff is nice, but they keep killing all the good songs with their so called mic skills.
After 1130. They shouldn't do anything but serve drinks. The Dj can handle the crowd.... Love the saloon. The only place I want to be on the weekends.
I had a shrimp etouffee. Nothing fancy but so well balanced a mix of flavors that I enjoyed the last bite more than the first - it grew on me with experience.
My wife comes from the Roussillion region of France, where chicken livers are eaten often. She declares the chicken livers at the Hominy Grill the best she ever had.
And let me second the comment on the lima beans. I never liked lima beans before.
The service was fair, the atmosphere unpretentious almost to a fault. The food is a bargain for the quality.
Friendly service, good sushi, clean, and laid back...
I have been to Wasabi @ DI for lunch and dinner. First lunch: outstanding value. Most lunch specials come with miso soup, a salad and drink. Many of the lunch offerings are under $10. I had the sushi combination and it was great. The salad was especially good. This was a mixed green salad with a super house dressing on it. None of that orange ginger dressing on nasty white iceberg lettuce. The soup is good, not great but much better than some other local offerings. I got the combo with a spicy tuna roll and 4 pieces of nigiri. The nigiri was very fresh and tasty. The spicy tuna roll was fairly standard but good.
Dinner: We had 2 special rolls (SC Crunch and Scam). Both were very good and the scam roll had just a touch of spiciness. Surprisingly they were out of toro which seemed strange to me but offered white tuna nigiri as a substitute. It was good but I like toro better.
The service was very good both times.
Visited on a Friday afternoon about 6pm (early dinner). We had the Pork Slap and fried chicken sandwich. Both were delicious. The chicken was fried really "lightly" and not greasy at all. I had the green beans as a side with mine and didnt want to share any of them!! Had a couple of the Abita beers that they were promoting where all $$ from the sales of those went to Gulf coast clean up. The Andygator was yummy! Very friendly and knowledgeable waiter...i think his name was Andrew (?) He made suggestions and let me sample of couple of beers to make up my mind what to order. Most of the sandwiches are about $9, so not too pricey. Yes, the craft beers may be pricier than the PBR or Miller Lite you can get elsewhere, but you know, here you get what you pay for....!!
