Re: “Dragon Palace

We have lived on DI for a few years now, and we love Dragon Palace! The service is very quick for a dine-in restaurant and the food is great and much more authentic than your average take-out! If you like real Chinese food rather than the typical American-Chinese food, you will love it.

Re: “Kanpai Japanese Restaurant

Finally heeded the good press here and elsewhere and went to Kanpai last night... How foolish I feel for ignoring this place for so long. Chef Park's humble (in location/appearance) restaurant belies the quality of sushi and other Japanese fare therein. We had steamed buns, both duck confit and beef, to start, and I could have eaten more of these for a meal. The duck confit was truly outstanding. Next we had some nigiri (salmon roe) and then a bigger roll, the Wagyu Roll. The nigiri was fresh and light as it should be, but holy cow, that Wagyu Roll. Tempura shrimp and avocado with seared Wagyu beef on top? Um, yes, please. It actually tastes better than it sounds. We also had the "popcorn" shrimp, which were tasty and spicy in their own right, but also came with a pleasant dressing/sauce with apples and avocado and fresh greens. I don't think there's any question this is the best sushi/Japanese food East of the Cooper, and probably in all of Charleston. Can't wait to go back.

Re: “Leon's Oyster Shop

So very glad I got to eat the fried chicken and check out this creative and tasty new spot before work pulled me out of Charleston for a few months. It was one of the last things I did before leaving downtown and I can't wait to get back. Best of luck to Brooks and Tim!

Re: “Palmetto Brewing Co.

Fantastic location and great vibe. I have gone to a couple of free events at this location and PBC has a great open air atmosphere.

Re: “The Mustard Seed

Try the sesame chicken salad with honey mustard dressing. Its fantastic. Anyone comparing the seed to huddle has has zero credibility. If something isn't right at the seed you send it back and they fix it. Their motto is "we kiss your ass". Fantastic food and great people. If you don't speak up you can blame yourself.

Re: “Luckhaus & Brubaker Sweets & Treats

I have visited this wonderful bakery a few times since it opened, and have nothing but wonderful things to say about it! They have a great variety of sweet treats, at reasonable prices compared to other bakeries in the area. The staff there is warm, friendly, and welcoming, and they appear to be working very hard to create a great bakery on James Island, which has been lacking one. I really hope their business does well. If you have a sweet tooth, check them out. You won't be disappointed!

Re: “The Pickled Palate

Completely original cafe tucked in a garden near Shem Creek. It's mellow vibe makes it okay to kick back and relax as long as you want with friends, family, wine, and their delicious home made foods. Soups, salads, and panninis and daily specials.

Re: “Peninsula Grill

Considered one of the best in town and still going strong. Would put in the same catagory as Husk, Charleston Grill, and McCrady's. Went earlier this year and still on top.

Re: “Halls Chophouse

I have read thru many of the comments and find them rather suspicious. The mean spirited comments smack of being posted by disgruntled former employees or jealous competitors since the focus of the complaints are directed at the owners/hosts, not the food.I am a local and have eaten at Halls many times, for both business and family events. I do agree that the prices are high, but I have never walked away disappointed. The food and service have always been excellent. Depending on where you are seated, it can be a little noisy. I prefer the upstairs dining areas since they are more amenable to conversation.

I strongly disagree with the comments that state that locals stay away from Hall's. I live here and have never heard a single negative comment about the owners or the food. Since when is it "creepy" for a business owner to remember your name or to inquire if you were satisfied with your purchase? Charleston is a small town and part of its charm is that local businesses DO remember who you are. I have out-of-town friends who look forward to eating at Hall's and the hosts even remember their names. The food is amazing--try any of the steaks, but the tuna and salmon are wonderful, as well as the corn and brussels sprouts.
