What a great local! So happy that there is a place on Johns Island to enjoy an after-work beer in a friendly pub. Bartender and owner Gerry is a gem, treats his customers as friends, and is a craftsman with the cocktails, too. Hard to drive past it on your way home without stopping for a pint!
Dr. McGill is extremely knowledgeable; his diagnoses are on the money; he is positive,
energetic and reassuring. His staff is very personable, friendly and helpful, and efficient in taking care of everyone's needs as soon as they enter the door. The result is, it's always a pleasure to go there.
We went to Angel Oak to use a Groupon we had purchased in the fall. We couldn't have been more pleased with everything. The decor is really cute. I loved the mismatched napkins and chairs. Our waiter, Dwayne, was one of the best servers I've encountered (and my husband I eat out often). He was very friendly, told us about the couple who owned the restaurant, checked on us multiple times to make sure we had everything we needed. He definitely put our experience over the top. As for the food, it was fantastic. We had the brie en croute, which was just enough food for us to share as a starter. It didn't feel heavy, like cheese can sometimes, and it came with grapes and strawberries, which were a good balance to the cheese/bread. For entrees, we had the salmon and the steak au poivre. I really liked the presentation of all of the food, but the fries in a little brown bag was just perfect! It prevented them from getting soggy from the sauce on the steak. Both entrees were delicious, and the serving size was just right. Not miniscule, like some fancier restaurants, but not oversized either. I think the brussel sprouts that came with the salmon were my favorite part of the meal. They were caramelized with brown sugar and lardons. Yum! It was also nice that we just happened to go on 1/2 price wine night, where they offer 1/2 price on wines by the bottle, but also the glass! It was a perfect weeknight date night! We will defintely be back!
Seanachai is a great little pub on Johns Island. Great staff with nice craft beers and Irish whiskey selection, with good live music every week.
I have eaten lunch here several times and have been completely satisfied on each visit. The service and food are excellent. You will not be disappointed.
We love it, great food and good prices for lunch. To many places now are overcharging for lunch but I can get a bag of chips and a sandwich for 8 or so dollars. I can get it delivered too!
We eat at Phuong at least once a week. It is very good, very traditional southern Vietnamese food. The pho is tasty and the broth very flavorful. My favorite is the rice vermicelli with grilled beef and egg rolls. Another excellent option is the house special fried rice. It's loaded with diced carrots, peas, and Chinese sausage.
For something out of the ordinary try the bahn xeo, a Vietnamese fried pancake made from rice flour stuffed with shredded cabbage, onions, and a variety of other fillings. The bun bo hue is another standout dish. It looks intimidating since it's swimming in chili oil, but it's not really that hot.
Service can be slow, but it's worth the wait. Phuong and her husband are from Belgium and they don't speak English very well, so there can be a language issue. Feel free to practice your French, though.
Chad has helped me so much with many physical ailments.
He is the Real Deal.
I highly recommend him.
Love it!!! When it comes to fast food...your options are usually pretty limited to low-quality/low-grade food. Persimmon is not only fast, but has an incredible array of options that are healthy and fresh. The soup happy hour is a great deal too on the way home from work.
This is a special place. It makes you feel very hip and cool just going there,The only place that i would eat grits, and the chicken and waffles is a must have.
We love this place! The Cheesesteaks are fantastic.
Everything I have ever thought less of Charleston for has finally arrived. Thank goodness for these retro hippie amazingly creative individuals. I will never leave unless you don't stay. THEALLEY CHARLESTON
We love park pizza, and I have to get my Bradwell pizza fix once a month or bad things happen (fig preserves, turkey sausage, apples, walnuts, blue cheese, caramelized onions, nom nom nom). And every other pizza we've tried is delicious as well. And on top of that, the people that work there are super nice.
Heart is an amazing addition to JI! The food and drinks are incredible! Service is on par with a fine dining experience, everything is made to order...not cookie cutter!! Get the word out so HEART continues to stay on JI! We love it!!
Love the vibes at Lava. Also Larry can really cut some hair.
We tried this out a couple of weeks ago and found the pizza to be wonderful. It is a bit blackened on the edges, as the above reviewer said, but we also had pizza like that in Italy, so I'm wondering if it's more of a style issue than a technical issue. We also had the fries, which were fantastic, and the arrancini, which were outstanding.
Lava Salon is now located at 811-B Savannah Highway! Right next to Avondale Wine & Cheese....
Excellent store, covered most everything in working with beads.
