was totally ignored by blond bartender who saw me turned her back and never turned towards me again ,,goes along with insulting staff ,,,o yeah insulting open mic night , The Mill wraps circles in hospitality and Open mic with young mi. oh once the dudes from Lowcountry Blues came to the Mill and asked Young Mi if she could stick them up front...like they were stars ,,they are corpes
Went to CBW to watch NCAA tourney... had a burger and FF. It was awesome, hand ground burgers and hand-cut french fries. Huge selection of beers and a bunch of Holy City drafts. I am honestly impressed. One of the patrons told me that the cheese steaks were extremely good. I know what I will be having next time... Keep up the good work
Only went in for the mussels, but they were out of this world good.
Bacon and Blue cheese with lots of bread to sop up the love.
"Locals" place. Friendly. Older crowd. Some pretty decent pool tables but they shoot league a couple of times a week and it takes up all the tables so it might not be your first choice of someplace to go to shoot pool. Not the fastest bartenders in the world but they make do. Not much of a karaoke crowd but I think that's as much to do with the substandard karaoke system as anything else. Worth your time to swing by for a cold in the evening before heading off somewhere else.
I knew there would be a eating contest!!!!;)
Awesome food and great service, I think at this point there's not a single thing I haven't tried on the menu and its all pretty good. The homemade pickles are great as are the BBQ Ribs.
Absolutely awful. if you don’t work there, know the bartender, or a Cleveland browns fan on Sundays... STAY AWAY. no interest in the casual diner. As a Belle Hall resident I hope this place goes out of business.
so great...and it's FOR SALE!
Great food, great crowd, great live music! What more can you ask for?
Sure beats driving downtown. This place ROCKS !!!!!!!!!!!!
We think Squeeze is THE best! We never miss the chance to stop in to visit the awesome bartenders, the great live music on the weekends. I personally like that the bartenders always ask if you liked your drink, they care about what they are serving you. And yes, the bathrooms are wonderful! GO TO SQUEEZE!!!!
I HEARD WALE IS COMING TO MUSIC FARM ON MARCH 1, 2012 IS THAT TRUE? IF SO HOW MUCH ARE TICKETS. ALSO WHO'S GOING?
Nanobeerz - you are correct regarding Smoky Oak's food. It is poor - pretty much everything on the menu is underwhelming. Among other mistakes: they use far too much sugar in all their cornbread, batter, etc.
The BBQ is poor to put it mildly.
But I find their beer selection pretty good - you kind of need to know which of the taps are new and which ones are old. But they have a nice selection of tall boy bottles too - things like Rogue Chocolate Stout, etc.
This pretty much sums up their food:
Last few times I have been to Smoky Oak to have a beer with friends, I stopped at Barberito's for a burrito first.
Barbecue should stand on its own with seasoning/dry rub etc. It should not need to be lathered in sauce in order to get some seasoning. This is where Smokey oak fails. The meat on its own is tender, but flavorless. The bar, staff, and other food choices are good--the beer selection is fantastic---we go because we live close by. But the best bbq is in tennessee/kentucky.
Wow, glad you read my 2 year old review and the rest of them. I probably go to Foster's twice a month, so I don't think Craig would want me to stay home. Many of my early comments were in fact addressed. For a while, I thought the food was stepping up (had a cheesesteak sandwich special that was really good), lately it may have slipped a little.
I can usually find a decent beer here and the food is good. This place continues to be in my rotation. Is it a 5 star as you report, definitely not, but it is a good neighborhood pub with above average beer. I think Craig is a good guy, and the staff at the bar has always been friendly.
I give detailed honest reviews and don't throw 5 stars out at every place. City Paper does not define their stars, but most reataurant guides see 1 star as recommended. 5 is typically reserved for a place that you would drive 200 miles out of your way for (3 to me denotes good). Owners can use my free assessment to improve or not. If they improve, I will go back as is the case with Foster's. Some places are not geared towards my tastes, or do not care to be.
I'll keep it short and sweet... Great food. Super friendly and attentive owner. Excellent staff. When I am in town, I try to come here often.
@Aleyeast-I clicked on your name and read all your reviews. You come across as a small, negative, petty, angry little man who fancies himself a well travelled, and scholarly critic. You are truly ridiculous. You probably sit at home with your little beer book plagiarizing content as your own thoughts. Do the area a favor and please stay home. I will gladly discuss this with you in person though if you wish...
Great time we had at social wednesday. Friendly hostess, accommodating wait staff, and great food & drinks!
In response to the comment below....Wow, coming from a Summerville Hick who has traveled quit a bit to VERY high end restaurants in MANY big cities (Le Cirque in NYC, Fleur De Lys in San Fran and Vegas just to name a few) , I will say I have had mostly good experiences at Oscar's. I think the Woodlands is COMPLETELY over-rated, the food is barely average, it's snotty, and NOT worth the money. I enjoy the quaint atmosphere in the bar at Oscars, the staff is always attentive and remembers us when we walk in. I think they have good steaks, (and they are just as comparable as what I was served at the Woodlands, in an atmosphere that I do not need to wear a tie, and I don't have to whisper my conversation due to the stuffiness). But what do I know, since I am just a hick from Summerville that has probably dined in quite a few more high end restaurants than most.
so.... wyjess how long have you worked there?
Overrated. I will take Moe's any day over this.
Rivers Ave near the mall is not in the heart of Berkeley county. It's close to Goose Creek but that's Charleston county. Just sayin...
