Re: “Halls Chophouse

Sorry, I don't see a problem with being treated warmly and graciously. We had a group dinner on Thanksgiving evening, the place was packed, and we all had one of best dinners we've ever had. My husband is a steak lover, and he ranked Hall's higher than Grill 225, Neil Jordan's and Oak. The service was outstanding, the specialty cocktails were great. This is our new go-to place.

Re: “Husk Restaurant

I have been to Husk only for lunch so far, but am excited to try them again for dinner and Thanksgiving.
The first time I went to Husk, it was only on recommendation and I must admit I was worried. They change their menu every day, and what if I didn't like it? I've been too entirely too many places claiming to serve southern food, southern style food, or a twist on the south. Well, Husk did NOT disappoint.
Our waiter was amazing. He was hilarious and sweet, he gave his recommendations and was even ballsy enough to say his least favorite dish, which I happened to order. With four people at our table we managed to try almost everything.
The rolls the give you at the beginning are divine. The cocktails are amazing. I must admit that I have no heat tolerance so I can't recommend anything with jalepeno vodka but that Copper Lantern is to die for.
I got tenderloin that was cooked to perfection. I have tried the shrimp and grits which were delicious. These are how grits should be... not some watery mush. Thick and big and yum.
Oatmeal pie for desert, you know you want it.
And if you go on a day with rabbit soup, fear not, and dive in.

PS. Anyone who is scared of pork lard needs not to eat at any place claiming to serve southern food. Come on, we store our bacon grease here!

Re: “Fiery Ron's Home Team BBQ

Dear FCB!

OK! OK! OK! I did not clearly state myself!!!!! Ron's does not charge $5 ON WEDNESDAY NIGHTS for the Lowcountry Blues Club jams. They do charge $5 or a bit more at the door when they have performers on weekends and for special occasions.

If you are looking for $1 drafts like back when you were a cheap kid in college or high school, the drinks cost more than that. Most bar stools or chairs are not as comfy as the couch at home. Maybe you should stay home in moms basement and drink up dads beer!

The ADULTS are at Ron's WA on Wednesday nights and they are having a lot of ADULT fun, drinking a lot of intelligently priced ADULT beverages and listening and dancing to some great blues music.

So don't be a pill! Get out spend a few bucks and support local live music.

Re: “Social

My husband and I enjoy Social for Happy Hour. It's not crowded then, service has always been great and the drinks and appetizers are really a good value. Also they had Pinot Noir from Oregon!

Re: “Charleston Music Hall

This will be a great show! Seen her on stage with Clay Aiken for the past 8 years and she is fabulous. Wish I was in town to go the show.

Re: “Queen Anne's Revenge

I have never, ever had a bad meal here, and I eat here semi-frequently. I have always experienced the friendliest service here - is it slow at times - sure, but this place gets busy, so be patient. I would say come here for lunch or dinner because that is their specialty. The steak and seafood dishes are fantastic. Brunch is not bad but I think they're still getting their groove for brunch. Honestly - dinner here is where it's at. Steak tips with mushrooms is to die for - and no, I don't work at Queen Anne's - nor do I personally know anyone who does. With French and Italian parents, I know good food and Queen Anne's has it.

Re: “Red Drum

I love Sunday Brunch. It is my favorite meal. I literally look forward to it every week. I have tried tons of brunch places in town. For the longest time Moe's was my hands down favorite (RIP). Triangle was my favorite party brunch place (the food...meh) and had great service.

Red Drum...surpasses them all. The food is fantastic and includes all the choices you would want from traditional to southern to unique (for Charleston). The bartender is always on top of your drink, and they have the most generous mimosas around. I also really like that the guys get their in a pint glass so they can still feel manly.
Get the fork and knife tacos...mmmmm.

If you haven't tried it for brunch - you are missing out.

Re: “The Ice House

Although I haven't been recently, I know from friends that the Icehouse has always stayed true to form with great drinks, great service, and great people. I look forward to going up there soon to try their brunch, which my best friend Carroll raves about. See ya then, Woody! --Nina

Re: “Montreux Bar and Grill

This is the best bar in Summerville. Hands down. Usually people that complain about watered down drinks are the same people that never tip. Nothing's ever good enough. You are a sad breed of human. If you can't tip, stay home. If you don't like Montreux, no one asked you to go there anyway. There are plenty of loyal patrons that will continue to frequent this place because they are good people and serve quality food along with a great selection of beers and liquors. If you have a problem with any of the security there, it's because you're probably a drunk idiot. And I like to see you call them that to their faces.

Re: “Swamp Fox Restaurant & Bar

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!

Re: “Art's Bar & Grill

I've eaten there and it's honestly good and the best evening is when any night "Baby Fat" is rocking the joint. They are excellent musicians.

Re: “Fiery Ron's Home Team BBQ

The food is delicious but I really go for the musicians entertainment. Musicians I've not seen in years appear here and that's a treat for me and the friends I see there. Last time I was there Dupree Wall and singer Momma Wall were performing and what a treat. Thanks
