Spectacular food. The chicken bul go ki was fantastic. The only disappointing part of the meal was the soup: mushy fried onions. Really?!
We finally have an Asian buffet in Mt. Pleasant. The food at Tropical may not be the best Asian food in the area (I would go with Red Orchid for that) but for $6.99 it can't be beat. The sushi offered with the buffet is actually pretty good although the choices are limited. The staff is always very friendly and prompt. Great inexpensive lunch.
Fuji is our new go-to sushi lunch restaurant. We used to frequent Sushi Haru before the place went down the tubes. Fuji has filled in nicely. The lunch specials are a good deal and the food is always good. The service is great although a few times we have been there were not enough servers to deal with the number of customers and lunch took 1.5 hours. The bento boxes are really good (and a LOT of food). The variety of boxes is really nice. The sushi is not the absolute best I have had but it is always good and I have not had any bad rolls or sashimi. Recommended.
the fried chicken sandwich was delicious. the accompaning fries were from the nearest burger king and the "famous" fried pie was a only a slight improvement over the fruit pies available (two for a dollar) at the golden arches. it is comfortable and clean, watched over by a friendly and helpful staff. if one is careful, he or she will be rewarded with a delectable dining experience.
5th Visit. The 4th with a friend for lunch, a burger and salad, very good taste, Friend had the Philly, loved it. Service was great. The 5th time was last night for dinner, Ribeye for me, just fine and the crab cakes, must disagree with the one reviewer, they are great! Like I said before, no cake, all crab! My wife had the fish and chips, crisy, lots of pepper and the hot catsup is a good touch. I think this place will just get better, even with reviews from the craft beer guy! I think he would just like to see the staff better educated in something that appears to be his passion. We can always learn! As I said before, beer just makes me pee. So I can't comment. But the food, friendly service and the fact that there is not much on that side of MP make it a spot that I'll continue to support. I'm sure if "Crafty" continues to frequent the pub and shares his knowledge, the servers will eventually gain the all important beer knowledge to make Fosters into a proper PUB.
I agree, I too like prices listed, I don't like suprises. I'll mention this to Craig next time I'm in!
Well, the beer and wine are now flowing. I went in last week for lunch and got the pastrami sandwich special. It was done wonderfully on crispy, buttery, toasty bread. The guy at the table next to me got the turkey, havarti, bacon...that is definitely what I am getting next time. My girlfriend got the greek salad; huge, delicious, fresh. Cork seems to be a great spot!
I've eaten here twice, and the food and service are great. I highly recommend the spinach salad with seared salmon. The mussels Palmetto are nice and meaty, but the broth was quite one-note.
Hands down one of the best restaurants in all of Charleston area! Great food, great service, great price, it's simply GREAT!! I would give it 5 stars but I want them to keep up the great work!!
WOW PEOPLE!! Are you really that bored with your lives??? Your more than nitpicky, your simply complainers!!! I got a headache while reading your so called reviews. There is a reason why people like you shouldn't go out. I'm disappointed that you are so quick to judge. Can't you just go to a bar to have a drink and unwind? I as well as several friends have spent a few great evenings at the Pub since the soft opening! We love the beer selection and so far the food has been good too. Of course there is always room for improvements. Can you let them actually be open more than a month before you go off the deep end! TO THE FOSTERS CREW....I think your all gonna be just fine! You can't please everyone. Look forward to our next visit.
I am truly a fan of Grill 225. My wife and I have been several times. We always have great service and the food is always on point. We love the tomato pie and steak foie gras. The dining room is quiet and romantic, the perfect place for date night. While I do admit the prices are a little too high for some place to go often, we find going here to be a little treat that we save up for and the food is worth the price.
We eat lunch at Quyen approximately once a week during work lunch hour, love the food and always have excellent fast, friendly service. The pho is great. I get my pho american style (ie chicken breast meat), but I have heard people order it Vietnamese style as well (with tendons and tripe) and have overheard good commments. BTW, the small pho is actually a full size bowl of soup, the large is huge. My particular favorite is the Vietnamese Crepe, its always delicious!!!
I normally don't comment on anything like this but I feel like the Smoky Oak has been taking a lot of heat for there service. So I would like to share my experience at the Taproom as we now call it. My husband and I normally sit at the bar when we go out, but the first time we went the bar was full so we sat at a table. We were greeted by a great smile and really friendly server named Jen. She gave us suggestions on beer and food. Never once did our drinks run out, although our food took a second to get there it didn't become an issue because we were enjoying ourselves. The food was definitely worth the wait and the service was great! At this point we have been back several times. Each time it gets better and better. I will say when Jen is not our server it is not always the same experience. Now we just make sure we sit with her if the bar is full. We have noticed some new faces and hope they follow her lead. This is a new restaurant that has small issues just like anywhere new would but they are minor for the great food and staff. This place is just what JI needed! My hopes are that people keep in mind that this is a small family owned restaurant that is just getting started. So to all the staff and the taproom... keep working hard and doing what your doing there are some of us that notice the progression and are happy with your service.
I always enjoyed Norm's Pizza. A cool little neighborhood spot with a nice laid-back vibe. I too was disappointed when I found out they were shutting down. I'm excited that they are back and with a liquor license, eating a big norms pizza is just not the same without a nice pitcher of beer.
The popular Thursday night pizza special is back but different with the new ownership. Instead of half off any large pizza with limited hours its now $7.99 for a one-topping large all day long.
Very friendly service, great beer selection (definitely cold!) and an attractive setup! Looking forward to going back for more. I would also say that if I was served a warm beer anywhere, I'm sure that the establishment would take it back and bring a cold one. Spineless customers do not a bad restaurant make.
Looks like Chaslovah and Missingtheblackpearl are one in the same and probably work for the competition. Almost everything is made fresh and from scratch. The pizzas are monitored highly so they DON'T sit out too long. Not a freezer in the place. And hey if you don't like onions we can either take them off of make you one without. And if you order something and don't like it, tell us. We'll find you something you do like. You're probably thinking this person works there...we'll you're right!
Hey DannyTanner come in and show me your ID and I'll buy you lunch if you're willing to give us another chance! I apologize if you didn't like what you had. Ask for Adam
When I first viewed this diner from the outside I was a little reluctant to go in. My wife and I said let's give it a try. Boy were we surprised. The food was nothing short of excellent, the wait staff was great and so was the service. In fact I asked our waitress who the owner was and as it happened he was sitting in the booth behind us. As we left I stopped by and let him know what a great place this was.
I had heard mixed reviews in about Lana in the past, but was impressed by both the food and service I received last night. The food is solid, unpretentious fare... you won't find amazing presentations or over the top ingredients, but my gnocchi and my girlfriend's risotto were both delicious and a great value considering the overall quality and ample volume of food included... An 'appetizer' portion of mussels (in a basic but delicious white wine sauce) could easily exceed entree portions at similar restaurants. Our server was friendly and prompt but not intrusive.
Overall, this isn't the sort of place you go to to be amazed or to impress, but it's a great spot for a filling, casual evening of great food...
My wife and I had our Valentines dinner last night at Samos, and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. We are both vegetarians so we were not able to order a main course or take advantage of their holiday special menu, but a couple of selections from the appetizers and 2 salads were more than enough to fill us up. They were getting very busy when we arrived so it took a few minutes for them to take our order, but service otherwise was very quick. The restaurant will feel cramped if you are not seated in a booth so I would recommend bringing dinner guests or going on an off night. It was an enjoyable slightly upscale experience and I would recommend it.
The Groundhog Day Benefit Concert for the Halsey Institute featuring The Opposite of a Train was my first performance at Memminger Auditorium. I feel the hall has a nice resonance and an intimate yet spacious feel. I'm looking forward to more shows at Memminger in the future.
If you want pizza in Mt. P, look no further. Their pasta, dessert, calzones, baked sandwiches also are terrific. My previous review stands, now with star power!
