Re: “Page's Okra Grill

One of the best sandwiches I've ever had. Charleston or elsewhere.

The PBT is amazing. It's got pimiento cheese, fried green tomatoes, apple-wood smoked bacon on Texas toast. Delicious.

I agree with the other reviews that it can be busy at times, I usually avoid the crowds and go a little later at night once the dinner rush is over. It means eating later, but also better service and shorter waits. Highly recommend.

Also, the BBQ cheese fries are great to snack on!

Re: “Halls Chophouse

If you cant get a table, eat at the bar. The bartenders are amazing and will keep you entertained and they'll offer amazing insight on the menu. Food is amazing! Family style apps are fantastic! A+

Re: “Smoke BBQ

Best wings, best brisket, friendly staff, beware the "Liquid Marijuana!" Everything was going pretty good until I greedily drank 3 after being told only 2...

Re: “Magnolias

Went for lunch and LOVED the crab cake entree! Just a great balance between the risotto and collards. Would definitely return just for that! Our server was very friendly and helpful too!

Re: “Riso Noodle House

Love the noodle house. Great people, service, prices and food. They have a very nice variety of asian dishes and lots of great fresh flavors. I love going there.

Management has it together. Greats you at the door, checks on you, listens. Really a great experience here. I was so surprised to see the level of attention the management and servers have here. Food was very good and good prices. Highly recommend.

Re: “Charleston Beer Works

The new location is great. Having an outdoor patio to go to out to is great for our running group that meets up there. All the other reviews are out dated and should be removed since they are about it's previous location.

Re: “Sermet's Southernterranean Cuisine-Bar

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!

Re: “Amalfi's Italian Restaurant and Pizzeria

We went to Amalfi's last night.. it was the best food I have ever had the pleasure of eating! The bread comes to the table with a plate of oil and herbs for dipping -- the bread is heavy and filling and tastes so, so good! I got the tomato soup and fettuccine alfredo. The tomato soup was the best I have ever had. It was so creamy and had pieces of tomato in it and just burst with flavor. The fettuccine was so soft and creamy and the best pasta ever. My husband had tortellini, which I tasted, and am not usually a fan of, but again.. Amalfi's did not disappoint!

The vibe was lovely as well as it felt rather intimate/romantic and of course italian. We probably would never have found this place if we hadn't been actively looking for local cuisine in Mount Pleasant and I would agree with the previous reviewer who called it a "hidden gem". I would recommend to anyone who wishes to have a lovely italian meal or a nice date night.

Also, I did want to point out -- it was not overly expensive and actually quite affordable .. for the two of us (no wine or dessert) it was in the $20 range before tax to give you an idea as I understand different people have different understandings of what "affordable" is. Another side note as well.. this was incredibly filling. We would have tried a dessert otherwise.. Will have to try for that next time =)

Re: “Skoogie's

I LOVE Skoogies and we go there on a regular basis, driving all the way from Goose Creek. I know their Chicago style hot dog seems to be quite popular, but my personal favorite is the polish dog with Chili and Mustard (i love the chili!) and my husband gets the roast beef melt. Also, the fries are great too.. and the seasoning ... now I want Skoogies lol.

Re: “Red's Ice House Seabrook

My wife and I went to the beach with our dog. As we left we wondered if Red's was dog friendly. They were more than dog friendly, they gave us a great seat on the deck and brought our big dog a bowl of water. Almost every customer and server stopped by our table to pay him some attention.

The service and food were really good and the staff were super friendly.

We've been back twice since then for the all-you-can-eat crab legs and loved it. The wait during summer was pretty bad (it never crossed my mind that it was tourist season until we got there), during the off-season we never had to wait for a table.

Comparing the Seabrook location to the Mt Pleasant location it's hard to believe it's the same restaurant, the vibe is so different. The Mt Pleasant Red's is much more "rustic" and like a bar that happens to serve seafood. If that's your thing great, I prefer the more open and airy Seabrook location for it's laid back atmosphere. It's mid July as I write this and I can hardly wait for September, when I plan to be back at Red's.

Re: “Philly's Cheesesteaks

Philly born and raised. This place takes a backseat to no one. I have never had a better cheesesteak. Period.

Re: “Philly's Cheesesteaks

Philly's is amazing! I've never had a problem anytime I've gone and the food is super delicious! The wait staff are always friendly and the wait time can be long depending on when you go, but it's so worth it!

Re: “Taste of Thai

I have always had excellent service here. The ambiance is appropriate and the food is great. It is one of my favorite restaurants, and I'm so glad I don't have to leave West Ashley to eat there!

Re: “Halls Chophouse

I live in NYC and here and have to tell you this place has the best service I have seen in a steak house. The food is great and the owner and his two sons make sure that everything is taken care of. I go their at least once a week when Im in Charleston, its almost impossible to get a reservation after 8PM and the place is packed every night. This is my favorite place in town.
