Re: “King Street Grille

This place turns into your typical loud, expensive "club" on saturday nights. No thanks

Re: “Halls Chophouse

I have read thru many of the comments and find them rather suspicious. The mean spirited comments smack of being posted by disgruntled former employees or jealous competitors since the focus of the complaints are directed at the owners/hosts, not the food.I am a local and have eaten at Halls many times, for both business and family events. I do agree that the prices are high, but I have never walked away disappointed. The food and service have always been excellent. Depending on where you are seated, it can be a little noisy. I prefer the upstairs dining areas since they are more amenable to conversation.

I strongly disagree with the comments that state that locals stay away from Hall's. I live here and have never heard a single negative comment about the owners or the food. Since when is it "creepy" for a business owner to remember your name or to inquire if you were satisfied with your purchase? Charleston is a small town and part of its charm is that local businesses DO remember who you are. I have out-of-town friends who look forward to eating at Hall's and the hosts even remember their names. The food is amazing--try any of the steaks, but the tuna and salmon are wonderful, as well as the corn and brussels sprouts.

Re: “King Street Grille

Is this EVERY Saturday, or only when they have a band playing. Or do they have bands? I can't imagine a cover fee just to eat or drink there. I usually go to the Chas. Grill in Northwoods. Can someone clarify this one?

Re: “King Street Grille

This place on a Saturday is ridiculous. They charge 5$ cover fee to have to wait at the bar and get served like 20 mins later. Who does this 5$ go to? That stuck up little club promoter who thinks his stuff doesn't stink. GET RID OF THAT GUY!!! I will take my business elsewhere.

Re: “Halls Chophouse

After spending a good deal of time and money at this restaurant, Halls finally showed us their true colors. Dont be fooled by their fake charm like we did. They need a security doorman at the front to handle the drunk unruly patrons who insult and fall over other customers. I felt like i was at a Biker Bar. The Halls and their staff are ineffective and inexperienced to deal with this. I have been to numerous steakhouses over the last 25 years and this would never occur there . Do yourself a favor, go to Oak and be treated properly and professionaly everytime, in addition to getting a much better quality meal.

Re: “The Green Goat

I have to say, I don't know what the big deal is with this place. The service was ok but everyone on the waitstaff looked hungover; granted, we went for Sunday brunch so I suppose that's understandable. Food was also just ok, really nothing to write home about but nothing was outright bad. The most egregious part of our experience was the lack of cleanliness in the bar area. There are stains on the drop-ceiling tiles, duct tape on the chairs, grease on the bar, dust in the air vents, etc. This place would greatly benefit from a thorough cleaning and a fresh coat of lighter paint; the dark green interior makes the place feel grimier than it is.

Re: “Taco Boy

Some of my steak tasted like it was bad. Manager never offered anything else or even apologized- just said it could be some propane from the gas grill. Like that's OK. Practically accused me of trying to weasel a free meal- which I never suggested, just reported the bad taste. Spend your money somewhere with better food, where your business will be appreciated. Embarrassed to be a local today!

Re: “Classic Coffee

Have enjoyed coming up here on the weekends when I have been in town. I find a little of the opposite experience than Chad D with the owners. The tall skinny guy always seems to be hustling as are the other workers. The other guy who is nice and all will put my order in and then watch the others scramble around to pour the coffee or heat up the food. Little odd.
I only get black coffee so its a little hard to mess that up.
The last Sunday I went by they were opening at 10:30. Open at 8 at least.

Re: “Classic Coffee

While the product is generally good, the service from one of the owners (the tall skinny guy, the other guy is rather decent) is practically abysmal. Initially, I was excited to have an independent coffee shop open in my neighborhood, and I had patronized the establishment solidly for a month (they only recently openned), often doing end of the work day paperwork there. The last time I went in, I ordered a 16 oz Chai w/ no ice and almond milk, because I do not like paying 5 bucks for a 16 oz drink and only getting 10 oz of product ( I worked as a barista for 2 yrs, so I know the product mark-up). First he gave me a drink that was made with milk instead of almond milk, as I requested TWICE, and was about half-full of froth from shaking in the mixer. I took literally two sips and thought it tasted off and that the weight was particularly low, so I looked again and saw the froth. I decided to let the froth settle before asking it to be topped off with almond milk. He said that it would be extra. I asked whether or not it was almond milk, it was not, and he replied "oh so you drank half the drink before noticing it was reg milk" I responded that I had only taken two sips and that it was mostly froth. He did remake the drink with almond milk and curtly apologised but then went on to say "we have everything marked (regarding proportion), and we cant change up the recipe just because you dont want ice in it" he then added " Were not a McDonalds". I have not eaten at a Mcdonalds in nearly ten years, and was deeply offended by the whole transaction. I wanted to retort "no shit shirlock", but just looked at him and said "You have a nice day" and left. What a pretentious and deceitful prick, and I will not be spending my hard-earned money here again.

Re: “Locklear's Beach City Grill

We were visiting Charleston so I took my boyfriend there for Father's Day. I'm from Charleston and it is one of my favorite spot. It was his first time there but he enjoyed everything. We both had the seafood platter and YES the scallops were the best. We look forward to visiting again soon with other family and friends.

Re: “RB's Seafood

The service was really poor...as if they were all new. Two of our entries were wrong. We were told to wait about 30 minutes to be seated inside. After 30 minutes we were called and told we had to eat outside anyway. The quality of the food was no better than a fast food restaurant. If we would have been told we had to sit outside in the beginning we wouldn't have waited. Don't waste your time going here. The photos on their web site were obviously photoshopped as well.

Re: “Social

A bunch of friends and I ate there last night. It was a really bad dining experience. We entered at 845p. We left at 1215a. Dinner took 2:10 to come out. The waitress never once came over and asked us how we were doing, or offered us drinks. So overpriced. The bathrooms were filthy, ugh.

Re: “Montreux Bar and Grill

Posting again due to how appalled I am. I cannot reiterate enough that this place is dangerous. I've never once filed a lawsuit... Until today. When my wife and I go out, we assume we'll be treated kindly and with respect by any establishment. This place acted as though we were lucky to be there giving them out hard-earned money. I wish I could post pictures of the bodily damage their bouncers caused. Montreaux's does not need to be in business, and I highly encourage anyone reading this to not patron this establishment. The more I read about this place, the more I see this isn't a one-time occurrence. I wish I had known this prior to walking in last night.
