Bad food, bad service, zero ambiance. Every time I go here I regret it. Tattooed Moose Johns Island can't open soon enough.
The Daily is disappointing at best! The baristas don't seem to have any training on preparing decent espresso. The coffee seems to be an after thought, as no one seems to really have any sort of urgency in helping you with a coffee, the flow is awkward without a cash register to approach, there is no where to sit for a minute, and the pastries are out on a table susceptible to being touched by other customers before you buy it! Please make some improvements to your concept!!! People in the neighborhood want to love a place like this. Your attempt to be cutting edge while also trying to be a little bit of everything to everyone is going to keep anyone from being a diehard regular. We have been three times, and will not be back anytime soon if ever.
I ate at the Chickin Chickin truck at the beer festival Saturday. Simple wings were 6 wings for $7.00. I guess they had you by the fuzzies so you'd be forced to pay those outlandish prices. I'll eat beforehand before I go to another Beer Garden. Prices for both the Garden and all the food out there has become very, very expensive.
Does "trendy" mean over-priced? Seems to be the "trend" in new food places these days.
sounds interesting, but at those prices I don't think I'll go and try it. That seems to be the trend in Charleston. Overly expensive food, small portions, and one is supposed to feel satisfied just because you eat here or there. I'll keep my hard earned money to go to a place that is comfortable, good for value, and doesn't try and be trendy or overtly "different". I would imagine we won't see many of these places around next year. Bad business models, to be sure.
This place is like eating at a food truck. It's a small menu with trendy food that is a bit pricy for what it is and not that tasty. Save yourself some money and go to Five Loaves and get a salad and sandwich for the same price.
Can't understand the review that said nothing special about this place. Must be something since the line was out the door when the six of us got there. Thanksfully we didn't have to wait too long. OUTSTANDING! This is some great food in a town that challenged when it comes to matching up to big city eating. We had the matzo ball soup and chopped liver and it was outstanding. Two of us had the corned beef, one has pastrami and another the cuban. It not only was fab but the food itself looks great like someone actually cared in the kitchen. Took some of the cheesecakes back with us and again OUTSTANDING. So glad this place is here.
Ahem, sorry but philly's house of cheesesteaks on rivers near the base is a perfect example of how to pull this iconic sandwich off. Sorry to burst everyones bubble.
philly native who tried this sub shop for the first time today. their cheesesteak is legit and left me satisfied. I was never a fan of whiz so I don't hold it against them that it isn't available. while I prefer crisper bread the roll was decent with a good balance between a soft/crisp texture.
its a small place that feels like its family run. i sat inside and my order was brought out promptly. staff from the register to the lady who brought out the food were welcoming and friendly. decent prices too.
The breakfast items and sandwiches are very good and location is super convenient with work. My only downside is I wish the soups weren't soo salty and this has been about 3-4 times now!! Otherwise I really enjoy it there.
Obvious shill above, this place gets one star for despicable marketing tactics.
I've been there for breakfast just about monthly since they opened, and I love, love, love their bagel sandwiches and breakfast burritos. The portions are large, and they don't skimp on the more expensive parts of the recipe (lox, et cetera).
My only knock on them is that the ordering/service flow isn't logical and sometimes that means a while before your order is taken. But it is never really a "problem."
Overall: big fan.
The real deal in Charleston Metro ! First, this is the ONLY DELI THAT PREPARES ITS OWN ROAST BEEF, ROAST TURKEY AND CORNED BEEF ON PREMISES. Hot Corned Beef is THE BEST WITHIN 822 miles [NYC]. Secondly, the portions are so large, it is not unusual to see folks rewrapping 1/2 sandwich for later.
Nearby Southern Season Deli and its piggish ownership took over the parking lot but patrons of MOZZO have not been deterred. They keep streaming in for lunch through to 4pm closing. So. Season Deli charges the same or more for sandwiches less than half the size + certainly of much lower quality.
MOZZO bread & salads are fresh-made. MOZZO ROCKS !!
Have eaten there a few times, trying something different each time. The food is great. Nice & laid back atmosphere. They have a very good beer selection. Nice to have a local place on Johns Island to grab a good beer and awesome samich. I would highly recommend. Give it a try.
Both of the shrimp sandwiches here are fantastic, and they make some really fun condiments (sweet potato-garlic kimchi, sweet onion-mustard relish, etc.). I also like their green beans and their macaroni salad with pineapple and green chilies. I haven't been as impressed with their fries or chips so far (too soggy one time, too dry another), but I imagine they'll work out those kinks, soon, if they haven't already. This place is a great option on Johns Island.
Charleston City Paper Readers,
Something has been brought to my attention: East Bay Deli employees have informed my best friend that the manager of the restaurant pockets the gratuities from all credit card and debit card transactions; so, be aware that this selfishness diverts all your well-meaning electronic tips from the rightful hands of the servers and staff directly into the accounts of management.
In my opinion, this greedy practice must come to an end.
I personally like the place. Never had trouble with the service. We really like the wings, as they are huge and spiced just right. But the sandwiches are to die for! Where else can you get duck, pork belly, wonderful Reubens, and other well prepared meats in a great bun? I come down from Summerville a couple of times a month just to eat there. Around Happy Hour, expect to wait on an inside table. Families are there, as well as college kids, and everything in between. The duck fries are unique to the Moose, and are delicious. I'll definitely be back. I hope those who did not like their first experience try them again.
This one of the better joints in town. They have a handful of very well prepared and creative gourmet sandwiches. Duck fat fries are pretty hit and miss, unfortunately, but I don't mind rolling the dice on them. Good beer selection as well.
After reading a couple of the bad reviews above, I wanted to come charging in here to the defense of this great place. The food is awesome, the beer selection is good (and always cold) and the crowd is a good mixture of what Charleston is...
That being said, I have to say that they are unfortunately spot on when it comes to reviews of the service and general attitude of the staff. At times it seems as if the hipster style of just being too cool to care bleeds from the atmosphere (where it's okay) to the service (where it's not.)
I go here often and will continue to do so. I humbly ask the ownership to take note of these trends in comments. It can't be all of them have a grudge or caught you on a bad day.
The only thing, in my opinion, anyone could say negatively about this place is the apparent apathy in customer service.
As I said, I will go back and I will continue to recommend it to family and friends. I just hope they get this bit corrected.
This place SUCKS! Went there today, ordered food and drinks. After 3 drinks (we were waiting patiently) and swatting countless flies on the patio the food never came and our waitress had gone home. Just piss poor. Won't be back. Too many other good places to go in Charleston.
