Great food! Ate there for the first time last week and absolutely loved everything about it. Our waitress was attentive and just as awesome as our food! Definitely will return often. Goal is to try everything on the menu - something yummy each visit!
For the price and quality of food, and home cooking style, can't be beat!
The most incredible food ths t I have ever eaten. Clean facility. Friendly staff.
The Mason Jar is great! The food is stellar & the service has been wonderful every time we have been there. Cute & clean restaurant, friendly staff. You can't beat Southern food that is done right! You have to order their mac & cheese. & the onion rings are amazing!!
Love this place!!
This place is awesome! I will go back again and again and again. And the mac n cheese is to die for! I give it 10 stars and its only 5 so you do the math. AMAZING
Just came home from Charleston, SC and had to make sure I left a comment! This is the BEST place if your looking for some good ole soul food!! I had the fried flounder, mac & cheese, fried okra & coca cola chocolate cake and it was FABULOUS!!! Also tasted the collard greens & corn bread, oh it was delicious too!! Very reasonable cost and the best service!!! Yes, the wait is well worth it!! Can't wait to go back, makes my mouth water just thinking about it!! Wish I could have tasted everything!!
We recently tried Okra Grill after some of our local friends recommended it. Everything we had was awesome and it will be our new favorite. Even my picky 10 year old cleared her plate and tried eating off of ours so that in itself is a miracle! I am thankful that Tommy Condon's, one of our other favs had a B on the door over St. Patrick's Day weekend because it led us to this new favorite.
Claire: It is packed because most folks think the food is good. Did you have a bad experience? Did you go back? Try it again, and maybe your opinion will change. A full house usually relates to something good. And don't go when you are "high". Kinda lets folks know your personal problems.
I am so confused by these reviews... Local food? You mean pancakes and fried chicken? This place is GROSS and for some reason always packed and therefore incredibly slow. I could see it being awesome if I was completely high or it was 3am or something. But then I'd rather have Waffle House's fresh local waffle or hashbrowns.
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.
Our slider appetizers were very good. Our entrees were slightly overpriced and hugely underseasoned. The wait service was annoyingly mediocre. We're not food snobs, but geez, this place has ZERO personality.
In Dec. I was in S. C. and by accident I found "JESTINE"s. There was a parking space on the side of the restaurant but the sign said, "no parking 2 - 7 p m". It was after 7 so I parked there. I asked inside if they thought it was O K if I parked there. The Manager said, "Will, you may or may not get a ticked". So I went to move my car and the Manager came out with me. He asked if I saw the white truck parked down the street, I said, "yes", he told me to take that spot as soon as the truck moved. I asked how he knew it was going to move. He said, "I have the keys in my hand". What a graceious thing to do if we all could just be nicer to others it would be a better world. Now that's Southern Hospitality and he is a real Southern Gentleman. Thank you for that unusual experience. Jestine's is a fun place to be and the food is good also. Thank you!
jestine's kitchen is not closed
We went to The Southerly early one week day evening to avoid witnessing a kitchen under pressure. We ordered several signature dishes [ according to the waitperson ]. The ambience, furnishings, and waitpersons' uniforms speak upscale. The general presentation seems to convey southern cooking with proprietary treatments. Our order included 2 Budweisers. We also ordered Butternut Squash Soup, BBQ Chips, Roasted Beets, Fresh Fish Catch of The Day, Pork & Beans, and Buttermilk Fritters. The service pace was moderate -- not prompt. The dishes served were between warm and hot. Quality was good, though not remarkable. What struck us was Okra Grill up the street can generate soup and entree equally as good -- without the upscale ambience -- for 1/3rd the price. Our evening cost $103.19 for 2 with tax and 20% tip. If folks want this nature of food there are better places like Vickery's which will cost 70% the price. OR, go to Langdon's where the food is much better, the ambience is slightly nicer, and the prices are comparable. The Southerly is a nice old ladies tea room with ramped up prices. Not recommended.
So...Teddy. Why write anything at all?
This restaurant closed temporarily and has now re-opened. My wife & I went there many times before it closed and always enjoyed it. We have not been back since re-opening so can't comment on how it is now.
Chicken fried when you order it, fantastic sides, and syrupy sweet tea - what's not to like?
Re: chapmanbates review
This is the thing that ticks me off about poor restaurant service especially when you've been in the food and bev. business for years. A salad which costs about $2.00 in ingredients to make can be comped easily at no loss to a restaurant with the hope someone sees this as an act of faith to get a costumer back in again, improve quality, and gain more business from rave reviews.
As far as I'm concerned I'll never go to this place. Hopefully the management will read these comments and improve things quickly or perhaps comment on the poor service and why it is this way.
Last weekend.... ate here but with:
poor service-a blonde waitress who was more interested in talking with guys at the bar than seating us/serving us. Food only mediocre...the guy singing as entertainment was SO loud we could not carry on a conversation at our table.
Finally, Miss Waitress brought the check...I was to get back a few dollars and change. She brought the dollars but not the change...too lazy to count out the coins and thinking SHE would be keeping the change as part of her tip?
She did NOT get a grand tip from me, far from it.
Last time here.
