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.
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.
For the last few years I have been aware that almost all of the food I have ordered here was mediocre with the occasional above average dish. Which I have been fine with me because for some reason I have always wanted to support Med Bistro and before that Med Deli, when the food was good. However, last Sunday my experience went beyond bad and I have to comment on it. I ordered a the pecan chicken salad and when it arrived it was truly one of the worst salads I have ever had. Extremely tasteless and bland and by the time the server asked how it was, I had no appetite any longer. I told her how bad it was and she asked if there was anything else she could bring me and I told her no. She took my plate with only @ 10% of it eaten and that was that or so I thought. When the bill came the salad was still on it... No manager came by to see why I had sent the meal back or for a discussion and there were only @ 6 tables at the time we were served. So I paid for it and on the bottom I said that I will never be back and I won't. When I said to the waitress that I was shocked that I was charged for such a bad meal she told me that she had asked the manager to remove it from the bill and was told no. Now, I was in food and beverage for 10 years and have never seen anything like this. I guess it goes to show that even the managers and owners have decided that bad food it too bad for the customer that ordered it. I will never be returning and I encourage all people reading this to stop bland food and stop supporting resturants that no longer seem to care about their customers or what kind of quality comes out of their kitchen. Thank you.
this place is in a bad location safety-wise.
Nina has moved to Merida, Mexico. I don't know about the gallery.
Nina's Gallery is a magical wonderland of art - ceramics, jewelry, paintings, drawings, lamps. Whatever the object, the creativity and uniqueness are there. Nina Liu is the warmest, most talented, most interesting gallery owner that I have ever met. I have traveled to Charleston about 20 times for Spoleto and spend a lot of time at Nina's looking, buying and talking with her other visitors. The ceramics and other art work I have purchased from her are all displayed in my home and give me a great deal of pleasure.The let time I saw Nina was in 2011. She was closing up her gallery, trying to sell it and retiring to Mexico. The comments I have read are from after 2011. Did she change her mind or is the gallery under new ownership which uses the original name?
I am interested in sweetgrass weaving
what are your upcoming classes for this year?
I Have been an artist for 51 years. I met Robert Lang 3 years ago and have been impressed with him, his work and agree he has one of best gallerie's in South Carolina if not one of the best in the entire Southeast. I'm opening a Gallery in downtown Charleston with my business partner and his wife. We agree that Robert Lang will continue to grow and be one of the finest artists in the Country. Cudo's to Robert and his wife. Terry Richard
i LOVE this place! i love their food! the salads are really great an appropriate proportion for lunch or dinner. Perfect place for a group of friends to grab a bottle of wine and chat.
Probably the best tasting lunchtime burger in town. Always prepared the way you like it. They even have sweet relish.
Hey, I went to the last show and it was a great time! Excellent photography, wine selections were fantastic - very excited about tomorrow's show
Hey this sounds like a cool show but I think the address is incorrect. Karson Photography Studio and Gallery is on 1050-B East Montague Ave. N. Chas. in the Old Village of Park Circle above Aunt B's restaurant.
Plum Elements is one of the most exciting shops in downtown Charleston! There is such an array of interesting items for the home; wonderful art and beautiful pottery in addition to jewelry and books and clever greeting cards. Whenever I need to find a unique gift for someone special I go there and am never disappointed. It's my favorite little gem of a store on King Street.
This is a fabulous place to visit and to browse. The gallery is the only one of its kind in the South, or perhaps in the US, we're told. It combines a retail gallery in the front, filled with nautical artifacts, includinig an old 1800's naval sextant, lots of brass items--ship's bells and ship lights which are in beautiful condition.
Bill Thomas-Moore is the charming host, model shipwright who is the expert on building and restorations. He also builds and repairs clocks, and creates one of a kind doll houses and other miniatures.
He told us stories about the ships and history around charleston harbor. We enjoyed seeing the exhibits of ship models, and the paintings. In the rear is Mr. Thomas-Moore's studio workshop. You can see all the various ship models in stages...newly built ones and restorations in progress.
Among the maritime "jewels" in the studio, are two eight foot tall model racing yachts on display with radio controlled units. They were scratch built by Andrew Charters, who races them around the world.
It's all fascinating, and there is a lot of history surrounding Cooper River harbor--SHIP SHAPES is definitely a charming, historical mini maritime museum. A must see for adults and children. Easy going--Drop by for a visit and chat with Mr. Bill.
Bill gives ship modeling lessons as well. He's a fine storyteller and host. Don't miss it when you're down at the harbor...This unusual gallery is next to the SC Aquarium at Fountain Walk next to the boat landing for Schooner Pride and the SpiritLine Cruises.
Be sure to take the "Schooner Pride" Sailing Cruise around the harbor while you're there. We did, and it was dreamy...not noisy, but an easy ride around the harbor.
I went to a show on saturday at sparks gallery. It is a realy cool little gallery. The opening was chill. The owner seems to be a nice guy that is open to local modern art. The work was pretty fresh. My friend jeremy is having a show there opening on may 3rd. Come check it out. His work is fresh. Support this space!!!
I am in Charleston twice a month and always visit this gallery. It is filled with great art... I was happy to see ASFA in City Paper..stopped by to view work of Stephen Fry as mentioned in your article. He is fabulous..Thanks for keeping your pulse on the Art scene City Paper. Does anyone out there agree withe me???
