Philly born and raised. This place takes a backseat to no one. I have never had a better cheesesteak. Period.
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!
Dellz is awesome. Mozzo is good. East Bay is below average. Momma Goldberg is shit.
The comments section in each link is valuable; it would be wise to read through them.
I never ate there until today and had a terrific lunch and unfortunately I'm a bit of a picky eater, especially when I go out. Everything that came to the table was excellent.
Great sandwich, less then $10. I loved it and will def be back soon.
I love this place. Never had a problem with services. Whenever I have people from out of town visit I always take them here for the duck club.
"I humbly ask the ownership to take note of these trends in comments. I just hope they get this bit corrected."
Seeing as how you copied and pasted this exact same post from 2 years ago, I'd say you have your answer. They're too cool to give a shit about customer service. And after 10 pm they're too wasted to give a shit.
After reading a couple of the bad reviews above, I wanted to come charging in here to the defense of this great place. The food is awesome, the beer selection is good (and always cold) and the crowd is a good mixture of what Charleston is...
That being said, I have to say that they are unfortunately spot on when it comes to reviews of the service and general attitude of the staff. At times it seems as if the hipster style of just being too cool to care bleeds from the atmosphere (where it's okay) to the service (where it's not.)
I go here often and will continue to do so. I humbly ask the ownership to take note of these trends in comments. It can't be all of them have a grudge or caught you on a bad day.
The only thing, in my opinion, anyone could say negatively about this place is the apparent apathy in customer service.
As I said, I will go back and I will continue to recommend it to family and friends. I just hope they get this bit corrected.
"The entire side wall is an open garage door to the outside bar and I expect bugs and heat inside during hot days. It seems a very odd design."
Bugs, heat, and cigarette smoke. No thanks, and thanks for the warning so I won't waste time and fuel going there.
Just back from the new Johns Island location. The food was tasty but the menu seems limited. The food is served in baskets which I find to be a pita. I got the cheesburger which came back quite charred and very well done. I tried to cut it in half and it fell to pieces. $8.50 + $1.50 for cheese gets you a burger like the one at Smokey Oaks for $5. No sides are included and the smallest fries are $2.50.
The walls are covered in stuffed animals which I'm not into and they crank classic rock even during lunch. I could see cranking at 8pm but really at 11:30 am? It just makes me want to hurry and not relax. The entire side wall is an open garage door to the outside bar and I expect bugs and heat inside during hot days. It seems a very odd design.
The tables are way too close putting everyone on top of each other. Overall, I'm not excited.
Extra points for having a sweet pinball machine.
I can't wait until the one on Johns Island is open. I work like 1 mile from there. I know they had some construction issues, but they have to be close now.
i have been going here since they opened. i LOVE it! the service is always friendly and it is my favorite local hang out and they always have great music playing.
Excellent spot. The Bun Mi sandwich was perfect, with a nice steamed bun exterior, and bahn mi style pork inside. Their charcuterie is well made and full of salty goodness. I am glad they are downtown, and not near my house. I would gain way too much weight eating there.
The only problem I have with this place is that it's close to work, and after I eat there I don't want anything but a nap. Greasy goodness...
Bad food, bad service, zero ambiance. Every time I go here I regret it. Tattooed Moose Johns Island can't open soon enough.
The Daily is disappointing at best! The baristas don't seem to have any training on preparing decent espresso. The coffee seems to be an after thought, as no one seems to really have any sort of urgency in helping you with a coffee, the flow is awkward without a cash register to approach, there is no where to sit for a minute, and the pastries are out on a table susceptible to being touched by other customers before you buy it! Please make some improvements to your concept!!! People in the neighborhood want to love a place like this. Your attempt to be cutting edge while also trying to be a little bit of everything to everyone is going to keep anyone from being a diehard regular. We have been three times, and will not be back anytime soon if ever.
I ate at the Chickin Chickin truck at the beer festival Saturday. Simple wings were 6 wings for $7.00. I guess they had you by the fuzzies so you'd be forced to pay those outlandish prices. I'll eat beforehand before I go to another Beer Garden. Prices for both the Garden and all the food out there has become very, very expensive.
Does "trendy" mean over-priced? Seems to be the "trend" in new food places these days.
sounds interesting, but at those prices I don't think I'll go and try it. That seems to be the trend in Charleston. Overly expensive food, small portions, and one is supposed to feel satisfied just because you eat here or there. I'll keep my hard earned money to go to a place that is comfortable, good for value, and doesn't try and be trendy or overtly "different". I would imagine we won't see many of these places around next year. Bad business models, to be sure.
