Re: Dock Street Theatre
Attend a play, in the comfortable, historical Dock Street Theatre, ... and treat yourself to a grand step back in time. This is my favorite theatre in the U.S. and I love sitting in the open air garden during intermission. Love this place and go to it each time in Charleston if I can. Sandy Tuttle
Love Old South Carriage Co.!
The Granary is new to my neighborhood, and I am so thankful it is there. This place serves up some of the best charcuterie in Charleston, with an equally awesome dinner menu. Do yourself a favor and get the duck confit wings. Pricing is fair for the quality, and the atmosphere feels very much like downtown CHS. I still need to try the fried chicken on Monday nights. It is nice to see such a classy joint move into Belle Hall shopping center.
Had such a tremendous experience at Sermet's last night on Daniel Island. My sister and all twelve of her co-workers from Boone, NC joined me for a great evening of food and drinks! The food was absolutely incredible and Morat's service was impeccable. From the appetizers (mussels served in a ginger lemon curry broth and fresh ceviche with just the right amount of of lime and cilantro) to the dinner entrees was well worth the few extra miles to drive to Daniel Island. I had the special of the night, pan-seared grouper (fresh off the boat) breaded with panko, honey dijon and thyme along with sweet potato, gorgonzola cheese and maple walnut raviloli drizzled with aged balsamic and also local fresh vegetables cooked perfectly. I would recommend this restaurant to any and everyone in Charleston!
I am not sure what the previous review is all about, but I am guessing there is a common trend from all the hating on top restaurants. My 3 experiences at Edmund's Oast have all been fantastic. I will go ahead and state that I don't own a single pair of "skinny jeans" or even loafers. I do have a lot of love for craft beer, creative food dishes, and especially charcuterie, which is exactly what the Oast aims for in clientele.
First, let's talk about the beer. Beer is the focus of this place, and it is unique in many different ways because of it. Edmund's Oast is not just a brew pub, but also an amazing beer bar. The brews on tap at this place will impress anyone who loves craft beer. And the selection isn't just focused on rare beers like Cantillon and JW Lees from Europe, but they also keep a nice supply of local beers on tap. I also like that they are sticking to unique beers for the house production brewery, as this doesn't step on any toes in the local brewery scene. If beer isn't your thing, the mixed drinks are pretty tasty as well. I am hooked on the Red Wedding, as bourbon is my go-to outside of beer.
The food... well, that is almost better than the beer. Chef Andy is creating some wonderful cured meats, which is an art much like brewing. At this point, I have tasted almost every item on the menu. The highlights, other than charcuterie, are dishes like the pumpkin custard, lamb meatballs, burgers, and porridge. I even enjoyed the hearts and gizzards dish, which was a first. The very first time we visited, I thought the porridge was a bit too salty, but that was quickly fine tuned to a more balanced salinity. Some of the dishes may be a bit small, but they are "small plates" after all. I still felt full after sharing a few with my table.
Finally, I think it is worth noting that the ambiance is very relaxing in EO. The wait staff is always attentive, and the restaurant always feels very clean. The decorating was all done with taste, and even the bathrooms felt high end. I have been to this place dressed in jeans and a t-shirt, and I have been there with a button up collar shirt. Either way, I never felt out of place. I hope the Oast keeps the energy going that they have shown in their short time in the Charleston restaurant/beer scene. I know that I will always be recommending this place to any new visitors.
Would happily pay a double premium to shop for wine without the nuisance of some idiot walking around blabbing on a cell phone...would pay triple to see the same idiot tossed out of the store while wining.
The sign says No cell Phones. That makes you the idiot.
Downtown Charleston finally Eats in Mount Pleasant!!
Terrific dining experience with comfortable service and stunning food. Long have we needed a place on this side of the bridge to be proud of!
While I can appreciate the honorable gentleman's (anti-mike's peanuts) opinion. I have to agree to disagree. Granted he wasn't born here, but Mike has been in this area since the mid-90's which makes him as Charlestonian as anyone else. He's been featured on National Television for his products and his personality; He's sent his product overseas to the troops. The mayors of Charleston and North Charleston frequent his stand at the market. And he's been a fixture at the Charleston farmers market, Charleston Tea Plantation's First Flush festival and MUSC for years. Mike is notably gruff at times, and has a sarcastic wit (comically so), but at least you know without a doubt about his strength of character. His notoriety brings great credit to our beautiful city and its surrounding communities. Your comment smacks of a bias against "northerners", many of whom have contributed greatly to our ranking as one of the country top tourist destinations. Would you (anti-mike) be more comfortable if he dressed like Colonel Sanders?
I've been to Oku a number of times for drinks late-night, but finally ate there during a happy hour one Friday night. The hostess told my friend and I that they could seat us right away (somehow even though it was packed) and then our waitress warned us the food may take a while since happy hour was so busy. The sangria was delicious and our food came out really fast. My friend and I each ordered two specialty rolls and it was some of the best sushi I've had in Charleston (and I've eaten a lot of sushi!). The manager came to our table to ask how everything was. The happy hour specials are great especially for the sushi rolls. The atmosphere is also nice and great for a girls night out or a more casual date. Overall it was a great experience and I would eat there three times a week if I could afford to!
Good burgers and Good craft beer.. What else is needed?
Very tasty burger (I had the "colorado" which was chili + cheddar cheese). House salad + house dressing was also excellent and a great price ! The prices were right and the food great - I will be going here again (Mt Pleasant location)
Page's is hands down the best restaurant in Mount Pleasant. Food is excellent, staff friendly and accommodating and prices very reasonable. We eat there three or four times a week and have never been disappointed. I cannot understand the negative post above unless it was written by a disgruntled employee who just couldn't measure up.
Everything is wonderful!
Coming from Kiawah's Sanctuary, these chefs are the real deal. Freaking great deserts !
My wife and I stopped in last week as I kept noticing out of the corner of my eye driving by to and from Johns Island. I'm so "HAPPY" we stopped in as to our surprise everything for a sweet tooth was covered. Why go downtown for a cupcake when you can find one better here. The selection of tarts, cakes, candies, and other sweet treats was amazing. I wish them the best. Start spreading the news, you will be happy beyond belief.
Best of luck to hard working individuals.

philly native who tried this sub shop for the first time today. their cheesesteak is legit and left me satisfied. I was never a fan of whiz so I don't hold it against them that it isn't available. while I prefer crisper bread the roll was decent with a good balance between a soft/crisp texture.
its a small place that feels like its family run. i sat inside and my order was brought out promptly. staff from the register to the lady who brought out the food were welcoming and friendly. decent prices too.
Frank Lee and his team are so talented. Justin, Trevor, Jason, Stacy and the staff are wonderful. Go there now. Charleston's best!
Groundhog Day concert - I didn't know what to expect but the entire show was outstanding. It really showcased the quality and strength of the local music scene here in Charleston.
The Music Hall facility is hands down the best venue for concerts if you want to hear and see the artists.
Beer.....good. Lots of beer.....better.
