visiting from north Indiana, we were very pleased with the bb co. !!! we had eaten several local rest. and were staying on folly beach and ate almost all to their rest. and we would have gone back several times to bb co. it was that awesome! the cleanliness, to taste, to service, my husband didnt want to try it, because it was "healthy alternative" but after eating a breakfast wrap, the best yogurt/granola on earth, we wish we would have found it sooner in our vaca!!! we left the next morning! we have been home for 2 weeks, and we are still missing our best breakfast ever!!! thanks for the hospitality!!!
With quality ingredients and fresh-baked bread, you won't find a better sandwich in Charleston. The sides and iced Chai tea are delicious, too. We'll be back --- soon!
Five stars! This place has the freshest and most deliscious food! Not only is it healthy for you, but it tastes amazing!
I have been to a lot of the new restaurants in town, but my wife and I went back to one that we have not been to in a long time. The Swamp Fox in the Francis Marion hotel is a true classic. We took advantage of Restaurant Weeks 3 for $30 menu. WOW were we impressed. We started with fried green tomatoes that were cooked to perfection. The goat cheese and pepper jelly that were paired with the tomato made me want to have it for the whole meal, not just for a starter. Than we moved on to some of the best flounder we have had in a while. It had just the right amount of spicy peach glaze on a crunchy light panko breading. Finally, we finished with the apple tart with amazing caramel sauce. With the food tasting this great and the incredible atmosphere of the Francis Marion hotel and view of the square, not only will we be back, but I think I might just become a regular!
The shrimp and grits are the best in Charleston (which means the best anywhere, really). The Cobb salad and the Chicken Ranch salad (a frequent special with fresh corn, fried green tomatoes, chicken, and a home made ranch dressing with a punch) are long-time favorites. Every "vegetable" (sides, really) on the blackboard is fresh, local, home-made and amazing. The fried green tomato BLT rocks. And how does a southern chef make such awesome french fries and huevos rancheros? Oh, and did I mention the fried chicken? The food is always top-notch and consistent. The service is knowledgeable and friendly. And since they've added more enclosed space, the wait is more tolerable (shorter and with cocktails!), the restrooms easier (two instead of one...no line), and they have a bartender cranking out creative southern-based adult beverages. Rock on, Hominy Grill.
Amazing food and great outside seating area with a tranquil water fountain. It is tough finding a vegetarian restaurant in the Charleston area. Yet this one more than makes up for the lack of supply. Great tofu-stuffed wraps and delicious water infused with fruits or veggies (I have had strawberry and cucumber water there - it varies based on the chef's preference). Black Bean provides a much needed respite during my days downtown.
Wow- Chef Ellis really serves great wonderful organic food- good for the soul! He cares totally about being LOCAL- using Thackery Farms- a local farm and goes out there daily and farms himself- he cares about his customers and that is his primary concern. If you are vegan or not- stop in for a treat for the best organic tasty food around and good for your wallet too! Can't wait for the James Island location- more yummy food for the area-
I love Hominy Grill. Yes, it does get packed so plan ahead or get there early. To me, it's always been well worth the food. I'm a breakfast person so this place is FANTASTIC for me.
I can't believe these reviews. The food here is incredible. I've been here for breakfast, which was good but probably a little too hyped up. Fine, let the tourist go here for breakfast...
I went here for dinner for the first time on Monday night and I actually woke up thinking about my food from the night before. It was incredibly delicious. There were four of us and all of our food was delicious, one had shrimp and grits, one had cajun meatloaf and one had trigger fish with cheesy deep fried grits. I had lima beans, mac and cheese, mashed sweet potatoes and corn bread. I could eat these for the rest of my life. Not to mention that we all drooled over the menu and all had a really hard time deciding what to order.
Our waitress was helpful with helping us choose, very friendly and attentive.
I can't wait to come back here for dinner.
The whole staff at here is very friendly, even better the food is delicious! The burgers are the best (made fresh in the restaurant). But that is not all to their menu they also have a wide variety of breakfast and lunch items. Like the menu says you'll never leave hungry from the Great American Grill.
Best food for the price hands down.
Very very good place for breakfast. Laid back atmosphere, and the interior is decorated with (you guessed it) tons of renditions and pictures of dogs. They allow people to bring their dogs outside, and in general I feel like the place does a good job of embodying the spirit of Folly Beach.
Most importantly the food is great. They put their own little twists on traditional breakfast so the place has a personality too. Definitely suggest it, but go early to get a seat!
Surprisingly delicious. Somehow when I make healthy food at home, it doesn't taste nearly as good! And it takes longer. I ordered online on Sunday night - the site said the food would arrive in 45 mins. It came in 20!
Great to have a healthy delivery option with easy online ordering (add/remove ingredients) - just like larger cities!
This place is a new fave.
I hesitate to write this. I don't want to go here again and have to wait a long time for a table...once people try the food...but i don't won't any negative reviews to be posted and that somehow scare anyone off.
Go here and try it. You won't be disappointed if you love local cuisine.
I've tried countless items on the menu since first stopping in and i've never had a bad item yet.
Go ahead and go anywhere in town for fried seafood..and pay 22 bucks for a seafood platter and i doubt it will taste as yummy as anything this kitchen produces.
simple food done right. choices of excellent sides. incrediable deserts what more can you ask for. Don't pay attention to any negatives and don't pay crazy prices ..this place has it all.
as far as the negative review of service..i've never had anything but excellent service so i really have no idea what thats about...actually even if the service is off on a day you choose to go don't worry about it cause the kitchen and the food is going to make up for any front end downside.
Good luck Sam. Great design for the place. I really liked the enviroment inside. the menu looks good, and I am sure the cruise crowd will like it as well. Hookas are also a great idea. Nothing better than hooka and a cup of turkish coffee under the Charleston sky!
Awesome food---great, friendly service. The gyros are amazing but the cookies blew my socks off--and they are vegan! wow!
A friend recomended this place to us when we moved over to JI. We go every weekend. Yummy coffee!
Just fyi about common sense: don't walk in there before they are officially even opened and bitch about them needing to hurry up or you're gonna be late. Makes you look like an ultra douchebag!
This is an awesome place!!! Every time I've gone there, the food and coffee were great! I recently took my boyfriend there, and he said the quality of the food was exceptional. The staff is very friendly, too! You definitely have to stop by if you are on James Island! Looove the pancakes!!!
I love this place!! Aside from being able to support a local business, owned and operated by a local business person, I have always found the coffee and food at Cafe Kronic to be fresh and prepared to order. What a nice change it is to not be enslaved by the food chains that adorn Folly Rd. And talk about locals supporting locals, they even have brunch on Sundays featuring local musicians. Keep up the great service, Kronic!!!
