Re: “Halls Chophouse

I live in NYC and here and have to tell you this place has the best service I have seen in a steak house. The food is great and the owner and his two sons make sure that everything is taken care of. I go their at least once a week when Im in Charleston, its almost impossible to get a reservation after 8PM and the place is packed every night. This is my favorite place in town.

Re: “Smokey's Place Sports Bar and Grill

Good people, Smokey is a veteran and runs a clean place! I always have a great time when I go! And I feel safe as a single woman in a bar. The food is so much better than your average bar food! It is always hot and fresh when served. I ordered the special on Sunday evening, OMG it was really good! The wait staff are always friendly and quick to make sure you have everything you need. Blues Jam nights are great, fantastic musicians and good fellowship! Thank you Smokey for providing a first rate venue!

Re: “The Vinyl Countdown

The owner was personable and extremely helpful in our various vinyl searches. He was even able to locate a incredibly rare vinyl our son has spent years attempting to find. The selection was varied and the prices very reasonable. You will want to spend awhile discovering old favorites.

Re: “Halls Chophouse

I've always had a wonderful experience at Hall's Chophouse, the food being very tasty & to my satisfaction. The Gospel Sunday Brunch is just perfect, admittedly the experience is much better when seated downstairs where the Plantation Singers are situated but the atmosphere & music travels well. The staff have always been so friendly, not just Mr Hall but all the servers we had. We have visitors coming into town & this is definitely top of the list to show off. The She-Crab soup in particular was exquisite as was their grits. The triple juice mimosa was simply divine!

Re: “The Vinyl Countdown

This is a great store with a great selection and there are lots of gems among the $1 records. It's an area of King St. where there's always lots of parking so it's not a hassle to get to.

Re: “Moe's Crosstown Tavern

I had brunch for the first time at Moe's last weekend. By far one of the best I've had in Charleston! Fantastic food, little to no wait time because we got a seat at the bar, and no pretentious prices. Loved it and I'm a brunch snob.

Re: “Trayce's Too Neighborhood Bar & Grill

We went to Trayce's on Saturday Night (19 Sep 2015) to listen to some Jazz and Funk by Louie D Project. The staff is excellent as well as the other customers. Louie D did not disappoint and we had a great evening.

Thanks for making our first visit to Trayce's a fantastic and memorable time. It felt like we had spent the evening with old friends.

P.S. - Order the nachos, you will not be disappointed nor will you leave hungry.

Re: “Tattooed Moose, JI

I love this place. Never had a problem with services. Whenever I have people from out of town visit I always take them here for the duck club.

Re: “39 Rue De Jean

I don't get it. Why the complaints? This is not a fine dining place. It is a wonderful classic French dinner bistro; The kind I like to drop into in Paris. We are regulars, usually eating a salad frisee with goat cheese and Moules Frites. They also are known for their Suchi (a bit of a surprise). It can get noisy around end of work, hookup time and the service can be terrible on any of the holidays due to over demand and decreased staff, but it hasn't stopped me from going. If you want elegant and pretty food, go elsewhere and pay considerably more. Here time it well and eat well.

Re: “39 Rue De Jean

Rue de Jean is a Charleston classic that never disappoints. Downtown is so saturated with new and amazing restaurants that it’s easy to forget the ones who have been a fixture for such a long time. We were endlessly debating on which new restaurant to visit when we decided to pick a place we haven’t been in years. Rue fit that description.

Each of our courses came out tasting better than the last. The escargot, while straightforward, was delightful. The steak Roquefort was cooked to perfection, and the scallops were massive with perfect texture. The rich cream both served with the scallops was out of this world. Our server was a true professional, and the wine recommendations were spot on.

What is the point of this review? It is to remind those of us who have lived downtown for years to not forget the classics. There are so many new restaurants that have opened recently and it’s easy to fall into the hype trap while overlooking the establishments that have been producing a consistent and quality product for a long time.

Re: “Bambu

The food in this place rocks! I was afraid to go to this place because of what I saw online. But my best friend kept saying that I needed to go. So I went and WOW! Crazy! Food was great and inexpensive and the atmosphere was terrific.

So, being the jerk that I am, I'd asked, why did they get so many bad reviews and then they pointed to me to all of the other sites that they were doing well on. I showed them the review about the Groupon and they said that in this business, you can only try to please everyone. Not everyone can be satisfied. Further, they noted that they are under new management and that they took over the business in 2013.

Lesson learned: Most people that enjoy a location would never take the time to write a good review... it is only those that have a bad experience that go out of their way to note it. So... I am going out of my way to write a review of my experience last night!

Re: “Kudu Coffee House

Too many men wearing tight jeans and women reading books, but those are really negligible and are worthy of a pass. They would do well to add some cornhole boards and a few flatscreens so that you didn't have to make conversation with a bunch of potheads, but otherwise everything seems up to par. Despite some small shortcomings, they still make a good cup of coffee. You can even use your dog as a conversation starter seeing as how they allow canines and similar small pets on their deck.

And I agree with the reviewer above. The place is located in an absolutely JEM of a location.
