Re: “The Griffon

Thanks for the suggestion! While I didn't have the "Honey Badger Wrap," I can tell this staff is the ideal group to create and serve it in the city. Thanks again for the insight!

Re: “Barsa Tapas Lounge & Bar

My bff and I enjoyed some pre-event drinks and tapas at Barsa Saturday night. The wine selection is varied and reasonably priced, we shared the dates, calamari and scallops. Next time we will be getting our own scallops, they were perfectly pan seared and the pumpkin broth gave a nice winter touch to the light scallops. We both agreed that the atmosphere would be great for date night and there were plenty of dishes that the men would enjoy too.

Re: “The Pierpont Pub

They know how to throw a party. Saturday night in west ashley has a whole new vibe. This 1 st year for then has been questioned by all, would they make it? What a way to go forth into the new year. Great crowd, Great food, bartenders could be a little faster with the service, and a more organized for checking out. This bar was on fire, live music after the game, kept the crowd till closing time. CONGRATULATIONS TO THE NEW OWNER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! KEEP IT UP.

Re: “Boone's Bar

Very good. No complaints. Will definitely be back for wings and bourbon. Bartender lacked a bit of knowledge about drinks/beers, but again, no complaints. The guy who appeared to be the manager was very knowledgeable and filled in the blanks. Really liked the atmosphere and the bar itself. The temp regulated drafts/taps is a nice option. Wings are a bit pricey, but worth it. Half price day makes them well worth it. Looking forward to trying more menu items.

Re: “Kim's Restaurant

It's a sad day for the Charleston food scene! Alas, Kim's is no more!

Re: “Pho #1

Not the ONLY place for Pho in Charleston, but out of the two choices, pretty delicious. Quyen's Pho is better.

Re: “The Griffon

Great Place… With one exception

I really enjoyed the Griffon. Food was good and the beer selection was great. However, one bartender almost ruined it. It’s a small guy with black hair kind of spiked. Lee or Lloyd (I think). Wore a flower on his shirt and was very rude! Anyway, the place is great, but avoid this guy if possible…

Re: “Raul's Taqueria & Mexican Grill

A welcomed guest to a strech of Rivers Ave that includes little more than fast food chains and terrible chinese buffets. The decor is very cozy and colorful. Food is on point and delicious. Service is provided by some of the nicest people. with $5 amazing burritos it's a must for a quick lunch or a margarita at happy hour. Don't forget to try the horchata during a work lunch when the boozing is frowned upon.

Re: “Queen Street Grocery & Café

I don't know what some of these people are talking about. I think the food and service is great. My only problem is the price--I don't want to pay 22$ for two sammies and two drinks. Also my BF has celiac's disease, bring back the gluten-free options! The "hipster/punk" guy has always been helpful and respectful to me.

Re: “Red Orchids

Sauces and soups were outstanding. Chicken was a little dry, but everything overall was pretty good. Definitely one of the better Chinese food locations in Charleston.

Re: “Sunflower Café

New to this state. Best hidden strip mall I have ever had the pleasure of going too. I started off by stopping for a Great Bloodymary next door, and ended with the most scrumpdillious eggs Benny I have ever tasted. customer 4 LIFE.

Re: “Grindz Burgers & Brew

This is the place to get great burgers and occasionally a beer. Every time I have gone my burgers have been great! The location is tucked away in a rundown shopping center, I drove past it 3 times before I actually found it. As far as the decor inside, its nothing great!! The decor is bland, bright lights in the dining area, fake flowers, cheap tablecloths, no pictures, no uniforms, and radio is always playing.
As far as the food goes, I don't care if I'm eating on a cheap tablecloth with fake flowers surrounding me, I'll eat there again and again. Now if I was going out for the night to grab some drinks with a few friends, I would go somewhere else.

Re: “Biggie's Southern Gastropub

Tried the Monday night meatloaf and the gin and house made tonic. It was all good!
Can't wait to go back to my local neighborhood " gastropub".

Re: “Coconut Joe's Beach Grill & Bar

Always had a great time here, sure its a bit touristy, but living here, its nice to go out and do something fun like this place. Great ocean views, great Jerk chicken and they serve up a good solid breakfast too.

Only complaint would be that service while fair, is almost always very slow. The restaurant def runs on island time, but heck, with a view like that who cares.

Re: “Bottles

@Timmons, my first thought too. why would they need seats? Also, too much of a liquor selection? I have never heard of such a thing. Bottles is a great addition to Mt P and I will surely do most of my wine and liquor shopping there.

Re: “Bottles

I've been there three times and welcome their selection to East Cooper in general. I didn't get to the Grand Opening, but was there just after the soft opening and since. It isn't Total Wine, but then it is a third the size and actually in my (work) neighborhood. I would say that wine diversity is their area of least strength and the "beyond too large" liquor selection certainly could have been sacrificed a bit to this end. However, I certainly had no trouble finding something nice in the bourbon department. Local Terrapure FTW!

The growler station is plentiful; I've been able to find a good price on whatever kind of wine or beer I was seeking, and the staff is legitimately friendly and helpful up to and including recommendations.

@Mr. Connoisseur, Esquire: I have to take exception to the comment about egress from Moultrie Plaza, though... there's a traffic light for left turns, three other exits for right turns, a side street to cut over to Shem Creek. Heck, I'm sure you could land a helicopter in that lot if that's what the problem was. Between that and the seating comment, you lost me.

Re: “Bottles

So when did they have 2 "Grand" Openings? They had what in the world of retail is called, a "soft" opening a few weeks before. But I only saw and heard of 1 Grand Opening. And I agree with nofaith, lawyers should stay out of liquor stores on their lunch breaks... And their beer selection is pretty good. They don't have room yet for singles, but I was told that would be in the near future as well.

Great addition to East Cooper. Hate making the trek to West Ashley's Total Wine.

Re: “Charleston Beer Exchange

Ok, ok. After discussions with many about my review, maybe i overreacted. maybe i was the one having the bad day and i did the same thing that i myself complained about and took it out on an undeserving party. I am giving 4 stars to even out to a 2.5 star rating. Jerks was probably a little too strong and it's really only one person who has rubbed me the wrong way so it's not fair to group the entire store in that light. I will maintain that the level of service i have recieved on many occasions was disheartening. I will maintain that their selection is incredible. And let's be serious, I will still go to some of those beer dinners because the quality, menu, and value is exceptional. Also, i wish i had an alias on citypaper website and not my name...haha
