Bear Down! In town for business, this Chicago style sports bar is a must see!
Oh Dear lord
Poe's has been one of my favorite go-to places for a long time and I LOVE the mahi tacos!! BUT to see this Tomas lady's seriously annoying and ridiculous rant on the side of my computer whenever I'm perusing the Charleston City Paper is plain annoying . Ever heard of a babysitter, Tomas? Yeah? Well, CALL ONE and stop complaining about the fact that your unruly children obviously are NOT OLD ENOUGH to sit still and be presentable in a really great establishment. Complete idiot.
Take your screaming child away from other paying customers until he calms down. Problem solved.
As much as I appreciate the previous 2 comments made in response to my post, I disagree with your overall statement. We were there at 11 am for a total of 30 min. We go there because it's loud, they have a kid's menu, they have high chairs, the wait staff has always been really nice, the food has been great, and the bartenders are knowledgeable. As such, I'd like to retract the statement about the "horrible, overpriced bloody mary's". I still do not appreciate the general manager being a complete jerk about the situation including when I went back to apologize for the inconvenience and complain about how we were treated. His statement that "he didn't want to tell me how to raise my kids" was uncalled for, unnecessary, and extremely hurtful. I would suggest that if they do not want parents to bring their kids there, there are easier ways to accomplish this such as removing the kids menu items and high chairs. I can assure you I will not go back with or without my kids. Since I no longer care nor do I have any more time to devote, I will no longer post any more comments in regards to this.
"I have never been treated so poorly in my life."
You must not have a very hard life, Tomas. No one wants to hear your crotchfruit cry, especially in a TAVERN. If you can afford to go out to eat, you can afford a babysitter. Next time I go there I will personally ask for Travis and tell him to keep up the good work.
Why anyone would bring a 1 year old, coupled with a 2 1/2 year old, to a restaurant that does not have arches or a Chucky Cheese mouse on it always amazes me. This is a bar that serves food. Don't upset the adults in the place with little kids. When you do the nasty and have kids, plan on being out of touch with decent restaurants until your kids grow up. Frequent places that have slides and playground equipment. Or silly games. Match the social maturity of your offspring with the intended menus and other patrons who are there. No food would be good with a little kid crying next to you.
I have never been treated so poorly in my life. My 2 year old hit his head and screamed in pain. When we were able to calm him down a few minutes later we placed our order. Literally, a minute later, the general manager, Travis, came over and asked "IS THERE GOING TO BE A PROBLEM HERE? YOU'RE KID'S YELLING IS DISTURBING!" Nevermind that he almost busted his head open and we were clearly emabarrased that we quickly requested boxes. On our way out, he took it upon himself to to tell us "BYE BYE!" As if he was the conquering hero that saved his patrons from the terrible 2 1/2 and 1 year old children. After we went home and put our kids to sleep for their nap, I went back to calmly let him know I have never been treated so poorly and wouldn't be coming back even though I have been there regularly for a decade. He actually told me he doesn't want to tell me how to raise my kids, but he had to look after his other customers comfort. Clearly he doesn't have kids, or he would have known that we were more worried about our son's well being than disturbing a few tourists sucking down horrible, overpriced Bloody Mary's at the bar. Way to go Travis, you clearly care about your regular customers.
AGAIN......and when might 'BABY FAT' be returning to ARTS.....if they are still together...they're a truly good sounding bunch of guys...:) :) :) :) ...and it's all SUPER good while listening-watching them at ARTS.....

The Caprese Grilled Cheese is one of the best sandwiches in Charleston.
We're dealing in facts, here.
Look, you people need to know all bars foods suck. You cannot go to a bar and get good food. Period. It's done. Go to a good restaurant is you what good food. Bars food always suck. Regards, Riptide
Sometimes overly crowded. Doesn't stop me from going. Can't beat the champaign list.
It's sad that one bartender ruins moe's for me... The young one with light brown hair? So rude. She handed me a pbr without me ever ordering one and was so mean around 1 30... Of course I want to be out by last call but you don't need to be so rude about it. Terrible, I never want to go back. Too bad!
Finz is a nice place except for one problem: they have those damn roll up doors between the inside smoke free area and the outside addict area, so the addicts can just stand in the doors and blow their poison inside.
They leave these doors open so the poison gets in the smoke free area.
I won't be going back.
As with all non-smoke free places like this, the actual rating is zero stars.
What happened? My last few visits have left a bad taste in my mouth. How do burn chicken fingers? They tasted like burnt grease, my fries were soggy! You need to get a waitress as your bartenders are lazy and to busy taking shots at the bar with their friends and could careless that my food sucked and my draft was warm and flat. I mean hot! as in the pint must have just came out of the dishwasher! What happened to Moe's? it is just not the same any more.
The old gray mare just ain't what she used to be. That great staff is gone. What used to be a good 8oz burger. Is now a 7oz burger even though the menu still say's 8oz. Everything i used to know and love about this local dive bar is gone. The half priced wings at happy hour, gone! Price did not go though as they are the only thing that stayed..$6.00 fireball shot Wow!!My one beer and a fire ball shooter were over $11.00. Guess i'll go to the recovery room get a PBR and watch the beatnik's fight!! bye bye Moe's you had a good run while it lasted! I can't wait to see what fills that building once Moe's folds.
Nice dance floor and great bartenders!!! They have a bartender that should be in Vegas! He flips bottles and blows fire! Definately the most entertaining around here! They also have great steak specials on wednsdays.
Too bad you can't put zero stars. I split a shrimp & chorizo quesadilla with a friend. We got a slimy grilled cheese sandwiched by cardboard-baked tortillas for $9. No shrimp & no chorizo. Since the waitress brought the paid check back in cash (bill was $26.84) and didn't bother to return our change (guess she really needed that 16 cents) she got to keep that change + 2 bucks for her tip. I get it now, you go there to see people and be seen. They only serve food so it will support their license to serve over-priced liquor. bleh
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
