Re: “Sticky Fingers

Eating here is a lot like going to Summerville.

Re: “Kudu Coffee House

Too many men wearing tight jeans and women reading books, but those are really negligible and are worthy of a pass. They would do well to add some cornhole boards and a few flatscreens so that you didn't have to make conversation with a bunch of potheads, but otherwise everything seems up to par. Despite some small shortcomings, they still make a good cup of coffee. You can even use your dog as a conversation starter seeing as how they allow canines and similar small pets on their deck.

And I agree with the reviewer above. The place is located in an absolutely JEM of a location.

Re: “Tasty Thai & Sushi

Solid thai cuisine for the price point. It's unfortunate that they've had to deal with whatever sewage issues that side of King has had, since I'm sure that's affected the ability to sit down and enjoy your meal. The stench of the sewage in the restaurant is overbearing even when retrieving my to-go order, so I hope that they can fix that situation. But, Dani is a doll and the staff is always kind. My favorite Pad See Ewe when I'm craving both sweet and spicy.

Re: “Madra Rua

Amazing place.

Great staff, good food, good drinks. Music is not too loud, tv spacing good too. Wifi seems to be hit or miss though, depending where you're sitting. My boyfriend and I LOVE coming here. Shoutout to Jake!

Re: “Cory's Grilled Cheese

Nutella, PB and Marshmallow or grilled PBJ....simply the greatest. Don't care how long it takes, I will wait for my fix. Also, I never catch attitude from anyone here.
Corys=good.

Re: “Cory's Grilled Cheese

Food itself is great, but after catching serious attitude from the staff multiple times(NOT Cory himself), I decided to stop patronizing this place. One example is ordering food over the phone and the owner, Cory, takes my order, and he tells me that it will be ready no earlier than 30 mins from now because they have to get more of a type of cheese necessary to make that sandwich. When I show up 25 mins later, don't roll your eyes and say "FINALLY" when I arrive, telling me that I am 15 mins late.

Re: “Cory's Grilled Cheese

I love Cory's Grilled Cheese! They have the best bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich in town. It's no contest.

Re: “Vickery's Bar and Grill

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.

Re: “Ocean Cowboys

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.

Re: “Olympik Restaurant and Bakery

We got take-out from there last week. Food was very good, with generous portions, and the gentleman there (the owner?) couldn't have been nicer. We'll definitely go back!

Re: “Bushido

I went a few times when they first opened. The service was terribly slow. The food was hit and miss.

As has been stated by others, these guys do not know how to make sushi rice, for some reason. It is wet and soggy. The flavor is not correct for sushi rice.

The last straw was when I went to get some takeout. I bought quite a bit because I like to snack on it all night. When I got home and took it out, the tuna had thick white stripes. This is not fat, it is connective tissue or gristle from a part of the steak that you should never use to make nigiri sushi with. I tried one piece, and had to spit it out. It was like eating a rubber band. I could not force myself to swallow it.

I drove straight back there, and told them I wanted my money back (which they did without argument). When I got back in the car to go home, I noticed it smelled like someone had farted in there. That's how bad the fish was.

I will never go back.

Re: “JB's Smokeshack

Not bad but nothing special. I remember once when they tried to charge me a dollar for a Styrofoam cup of water. Smoaky Oak on JI is better IMO.

Re: “The Granary

This place is the jam. I can't say enough nice things about it. My husband and I go at least a couple times a month- their food is always delicious. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable about their dishes. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. The happy hour specials are the bomb. I love The Granary! You will not be disappointed with this restaurant.
