The only place in Charleston that serves real fried chicken.

"Must have WENT"???? How about "must have GONE". Jeez.....
I had the occasion to visit the area for the first time today. I asked around about a good place to eat lunch near the water and was told about Vickery's. But I'm sorry to say that I was not thrilled. First of all, the hostess never said a word when I walked in. She just gave me a weird look. I had to do the speaking. That should be a huge no-no. Part of her job should be greeting customers with a smile. She, honestly, was pretty unfriendly. I chose lemonade for a beverage and it was okay but tasted flat. The slaw I had was unedible. It was bitter and tasted terrible. I'm not sure if it was bad or not but I wasn't going to take a chance. I chose the fried shrimp and they were good but I was surprised at how tiny they were. The fries were lukewarm and wimpy. All in all, I spent $23 for a lunch that, in my opinion, was of far less quality than Red Lobster. I was pretty disappointed.
You must have went on a bad night. The service is normally great and the staff are very hospitable. They have awesome rock n roll bands during the week.
Poor Management!!! Terrible Service, Unfriendly, and nasty attitudes. Will NEVER visit again!!
As of 2-4-2015 under new management Don-Ton Services LLC. Now open 7 days per week. New owners Donald and Tonya Adams have a high standard of customer service. The expectation is to create a friendly, enjoyable place to enjoy food drinks and the company of friends in a marina setting. There will be live music on the deck throughout the summer. We invite you to come on out and enjoy the setting , friendly people and the cool breeze coming off the Stono River.
Best out of town restaurant dining experience my wife and I have ever had! We dropped in after seeing the place while walking to another restaurant. I immediately recognized Chef Ross from our dining at Leaf. The place was full (I think reservations only), but Chef Ross sat us anyway and that began a dining experience without equal. It was like sitting in the Chef's kitchen and having him prepare a 5 course meal on the spot just for us. All the other diners were just as amazed. WOW! I'm telling you this is where we will head on our next trip to Charleston.
my biased opinion. Love it!
We had a nice experience here for lunch. The cost of food has made it difficult for places like this to provide good food at a value. My wife had the lobster Po Boy and I had the grilled shrimp. The lobster was very lightly fried which is not an easy thing to do. Much easier, and most places do, batter heavy and fry the hell out of something. This was not the case. Really well prepared.
The shrimp was OK but a very small portion. The bread was at the end of it's freshness so really didn't eat much of it. The service was good to very good. As a rookie I didn't know to bring my parking ticket with to be validated so my server said "no problem, I'll get you a pass." Much appreciated.
As an old dog with lots of experience, it's obvious to me that this is a breakfast place and I can't wait to give it another try.
Great food at good prices. We were in Charleston for a week & ate here 3 times.
The fish & chips special on Friday is tasty. Burgers & pork chops are excellent.
The sides are inventive & don't miss the desserts. The service was excellent.
We are looking forward to eating here on our next visit in the spring
Great to go here, sit and watch the chef, chat, drink wine and enjoy the courses.
I must admit, this afternoon at Leon's, was a wonderful way to spend a Saturday afternoon. We sat at your oyster bar, and made me feel like I was at Acme's or Felix's oyster bar. The best part was we we're here in our own home of Charleston,
eating select oysters from Light House point I believe from Va. They were outstanding and sipping on a original Coors Banquet draft. Your entire wait staff made our dining experience even more pleasurable. I believe his name was Tom, great job by him, and your new bar keeper.
We ate a half dozen of the oysters, which were spot on, and we both had the 2 piece fried chicken, the best I've ever had, along with the Cauliflower soup, which will have me coming back for another bowl.
The oysters were very good..... The chicken was greasy and over spiced ... Had a dozen good oysters then the bill came at $70.00... Was still hungry sorry never again
Wonderful food and service. The pork chops are awesome! Quality food at reasonable prices.
Striving for authenticity of a neighborhood oyster house this falls flat. Expensive for what it is and the sides are lackluster.
Huge fan of this place. Everytime I have been the food has been spot on and the service good. Must try the shrimp toast, Siam salad, barley salad, and of course the sandwiches. Definitely a place to check out.
Well worth the visit. Some of the best oysters I've had in a long time.
Just had lunch at the GG and can add two things to the previous post:
Pork chops, fried rice and grilled mixed vegetables were absolutely yummy.
The over pouring server has been removed.
That being said, my personal policy is to no longer order mixed drinks anywhere that does not use measuring devices on their liquor, and post the amount measured.
Simply put, I need my license, I don't need a DUI, especially after trying to drink responsibly and stop after two drinks.
These servers that do this over pouring are not doing you any favors; their only interest is to get you more inebriated so you will tip more.
They could give a shit less about the legal problems that may cause you.
