Re: “Mason Jar by Fatboys

The Mason Jar is great! The food is stellar & the service has been wonderful every time we have been there. Cute & clean restaurant, friendly staff. You can't beat Southern food that is done right! You have to order their mac & cheese. & the onion rings are amazing!!

Re: “Raul's Maya del Sol

Good place, if a little unconventional, and excellent food. Honestly, my only beef with the place is that they charge a little more than I'd like for basics at a primarily lunch place ($3 for a taco, for example). Though to be fair, if you go to Santi's or Taco Boy or anywhere else you'll pay the same. I just got spoiled at the taquerias in Dallas. Overall, excellent food, excellent service, highly recommend.

Re: “Halls Chophouse

Had a fantastic birthday dinner with great service from Jordan, a nice table overlooking the front window and enjoyed the best steak I have ever put in my mouth. Hall's is one of our favorite restaurants because, unlike some folks apparently, we enjoy a friendly greeting from one of the owners at the door, someone finding me a seat when it's 3 deep at the bar & servers who are knowledgeable & friendly along with the best steak we've ever had. There's a reason it's always busy & you can't get a reservation before 9:30pm. Don't believe the negative comments. We live here & love this place.

Re: “Leon's Oyster Shop

I must admit, this afternoon at Leon's, was a wonderful way to spend a Saturday afternoon. We sat at your oyster bar, and made me feel like I was at Acme's or Felix's oyster bar. The best part was we we're here in our own home of Charleston,
eating select oysters from Light House point I believe from Va. They were outstanding and sipping on a original Coors Banquet draft. Your entire wait staff made our dining experience even more pleasurable. I believe his name was Tom, great job by him, and your new bar keeper.
We ate a half dozen of the oysters, which were spot on, and we both had the 2 piece fried chicken, the best I've ever had, along with the Cauliflower soup, which will have me coming back for another bowl.

Re: “Halls Chophouse

Wow, I am blown away by the negative comments posted about this fantastic restaurant. Whatever you do, dont pay attention. Those haters probably think that Applebee's has the best food in town. ;-) Halls Chophouse exceeded our expectations in every way imaginable. My wife and I went here for our twentieth wedding anniversary, and were impressed as soon as soon as we entered the door. Billy Hall greeted us when we first arrived, checked on us at the table, wished us a happy anniversary with two glasses of champagne in hand, and was at the front door when we left in order to send us off in style. The service by all of the staff was absolutely the best that I have experienced in South Carolina. To top it all off, my wife and I received a very nice personal card from our server three days after dining. At 39 years of age, this is the first time that I have ever received a card from a restaurant that I dined at. They truly treat you like royalty at this restaurant. All this talk about the restaurant, and nothing about the food. I take pride in my steaks, and act as if I were a steak connoisseur whenever I eat steaks at another restaurant. I can honestly say that this was the best steak that I have had in the Southeast!!!! Halls Chophouse is an absolute "must do" when you come to Charleston. We have lived here for 8 years, and can't believe that this is the first time that we have eaten at Halls. We will be back for years to come!.

Re: “JB's Smokeshack

Coachz: Not so sure why you wanted water, but these guys have to make a living, you know. Did they have to buy the cup and make the ice? Did they have to take time to make it up? Were refills free? Do they pay for the cost of the water and the equally same sum for the sewer service? Electricity, rent, etc? Stay at McDonalds and Hardees. These are the places cheapskates frequent.

Re: “JB's Smokeshack

They rock, so much better than Duke's BBQ. Their meat is actually has a smokey flavor compared to all the bland BBQ restaurants around. Its pretty cheap too.

Re: “Halls Chophouse

I frequent Halls quite often both for personal enjoyment and for business entertainment. I have never had a bad time, a bad meal or a bad experience. It has always been over the top good in all 3 categories. We are fortunate to have the Hall family and Hall's Chophouse here in Charleston!

Re: “Halls Chophouse

My husband and I treated my parents at Hall's Saturday evening. This was one of the best meals I have ever eaten. My Dad placed his bone-in filet as one of the top three steaks he has had in his life. My husband's bison was so tender and delicious I had to stop myself from stealing it. My veal chop was tender, juicy, perfectly cooked, and tasted the way a pampered baby animal should. My Mom enjoyed the sides so much that she was kind enough to save half of her prime rib for the next day which we turned into cheesesteak breakfast sandwiches for brunch Sunday morning.

Our service team never left us in want of anything. If not for seeing the other diners, we all felt like we were the only people in the room.

There are many great restaurants in Charleston, but, Hall's is definitely the place to go for a memorable experience.

Re: “Folly Beach Shrimp Company

There was a HUGE miscommunication between our party and Shrimp Co. We had a party of about 55 people (give or take) show up unexpectedly. They stepped up to the plate and did an amazing job serving us from the bar as well as from the kitchen. Despite the stress and craziness, their staff was fun, friendly and more than willing to take on the daunting task of having an unexpected party our size. I'll definitely be coming here again and recommending then to everyone I know! P.S. Aside from their awesome service, their BBQ nachos and Crab Cakes are AMAZING!!!

Re: “Husk Restaurant

"amberjack is a wonderful fish, both robust and flaky at the same time, a fish deserving of being allowed to be tasted on its own merit with subtle accents to complement its texture and inherent flavor"

That's gotta be the nicest thing ever written about an ol' sea donkey.

Re: “Husk Restaurant

Mrs cp and I finally got around to going to Husk this evening.

Long story short, in our opinion by far the most overrated restaurant in Charleston.

Mind you nothing was inherently terrible, but not a notable dish to be found. Also mindful that expectations are the building blocks of disappointment we tried to be as objective as possible ... still, most of dinner was spent trying to locate the 'great' and trying to figure out what the fuss is all about.

Things started out goodish, with a bean salad for mrs soulsea and the chicken skins for me. Granted it's a little weird having a heated salad as an appetizer but it did taste good, as did the chicken skins.

Our main course went as follows ... mrs cp is a vegetarian and we are fully aware that most restaurants we go to her choices will be limited. But in every quality restaurant we've ever dined at the chef will create something special for vegetarians, especially if said chef never took the time to insert even one vegetarian dish amongst their main courses to begin with, which quite frankly is unheard of in 2014. What was the chef's offering for her tonight you ask? Assorted grilled/fried vegetables. That's right, the chef at Husk put together the exact same dish that the chef at Outback always suggests, and they were both equally impressive.

'chili pimp you asshat it's your fault for not knowing that everything including the water is prepared in pork fat at Husk, as such it's your fault for seeking a vegetarian dish there' I hear you say. Fair enough, so let me tell you about my dish. I ordered the amberjack. Now keep in mind that amberjack is a wonderful fish, both robust and flaky at the same time, a fish deserving of being allowed to be tasted on its own merit with subtle accents to complement its texture and inherent flavor. Instead it was swimming in a sauce comprised of a cacophony of ingredients imagined in the mind of a chef that would rather overthink the obvious than leave well enough alone. Seriously dude, fish plus a few precise elements not fish and all of them. All I tasted was the soup he called a sauce and the fish might as well have been bread to the palate. Ugh!

Deserts were bland end equally too clever for their own good taste.

We're glad we went but we will not be going back.

They must have a hell of a PR dept. cause I can name at least fifteen better Charleston restaurants than Husk, and half of them are tourist traps. To go back to the original point ... it is still a complete mystery to us what the Husk fuss is all about.

Re: “Halls Chophouse

Atmosphere nice, food great, owners southern! I have lived in the south my entire life..most of these reviews are from people that haven't! Never be rude about a lady and her family because of a meal you thought was ok to begin with apparently they are working hard to make it great experience . Hatefulness go back up north!
