Re: “Olympik Restaurant and Bakery

We got take-out from there last week. Food was very good, with generous portions, and the gentleman there (the owner?) couldn't have been nicer. We'll definitely go back!

Re: “Bushido

I went a few times when they first opened. The service was terribly slow. The food was hit and miss.

As has been stated by others, these guys do not know how to make sushi rice, for some reason. It is wet and soggy. The flavor is not correct for sushi rice.

The last straw was when I went to get some takeout. I bought quite a bit because I like to snack on it all night. When I got home and took it out, the tuna had thick white stripes. This is not fat, it is connective tissue or gristle from a part of the steak that you should never use to make nigiri sushi with. I tried one piece, and had to spit it out. It was like eating a rubber band. I could not force myself to swallow it.

I drove straight back there, and told them I wanted my money back (which they did without argument). When I got back in the car to go home, I noticed it smelled like someone had farted in there. That's how bad the fish was.

I will never go back.

Re: “JB's Smokeshack

Not bad but nothing special. I remember once when they tried to charge me a dollar for a Styrofoam cup of water. Smoaky Oak on JI is better IMO.

Re: “The Granary

This place is the jam. I can't say enough nice things about it. My husband and I go at least a couple times a month- their food is always delicious. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable about their dishes. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. The happy hour specials are the bomb. I love The Granary! You will not be disappointed with this restaurant.

Re: “Coconut Joe's Beach Grill & Bar

Hello every body my name is Cynthia Morgan, am from United Kingdom England, I just want to share my experience with the world on how Dr iayaryi, help me, I got my love back and saved my marriage… I was married for 3 years with 1kid and we lived happily until things started getting ugly and we had fights and argued almost every time… it got worse at a point that he filed for divorce… I tried my best to make him change his mind & stay with me because I love him so much and don’t want to lose him but everything just didn't work out… he moved out of the house because it was a rented apartment and still went ahead to file for divorce… I pleaded and tried everything but still nothing worked. The breakthrough came when someone introduced me to this wonderful, great spell caster who eventually helped me out… I have never been a fan of things like this but just decided to try reluctantly because I was desperate and left with no choice… He did special prayers and used his power… Within 4 days my husband called me and he said he was sorry for all the emotional pains he had cost me, moved back to the house and we continue to live happily and our kid is happy too and we are expecting our second child… I have introduced him to a lot of couples with problems across the world and they have had good news… Just thought I should share my experience because I strongly believe someone out there need’s it… You can email him through his email.(driayaryi2012@hotmail.com)

Re: “JB's Smokeshack

Jb's is really good, you just need to go before the buffet gets destroyed. Their meat is really smokey, i don't see how the last guy thought it wasn't unless his last name is Dukes

Re: “JB's Smokeshack

Really disappointing. The good reviews were the reason I decided to go there. I guess I should have known better as soon as I saw the buffet setup. There are about a thousand bottles of their sauce in there, so it seems like they are trying to sell sauce rather than good food.

I picked up a pound of Pulled Pork (I like BBQ sandwiches) and a large Mac and Cheese to bring home and share with my friends. The meat was sort of soggy, and had clearly been reheated. There was no flavor to it. There was no bark or crust. I could not detect any smoke flavor. Contrary to their slogan, the only way to get any taste from this was to sauce it up. Their sweet sauce was really good.

The Mac and Cheese was the worst I have ever attempted to eat. I mean really bad. I appeared to have been made many days prior. One of those microwavable cups of Kraft would have been a far better choice. I threw most of it away.

Hard to believe how difficult it is to find good BBQ in Charleston. Don't get me started on Home Boy Team Robbery BBQ - They suck too.

Re: “Zero George Cafe + Bar

Hidden gem of the city. Ultra cool atmosphere, excellent food, first class service and, thankfully, off the beaten path. Best appreciated at night when you approach through the gas lite courtyard, walk through the cozy kitchen, step down into the intimate bar, slip into the adjoining restaurant area or proceed up to the lounge rooms bathed in candlelight. As a Charlestonian, it's my go to place to impress friends, clients and dates. My only hope is that the locals don't find out about this place, which I might have just done with this review.....

Re: “Locals Bar

Amazing sushi. Very interesting choices. Good prices especially for how large the rolls are

Re: “The Lot

My wife and I had one of the best meals we've ever had here last weekend. I had the brick chicken which would have filled both of us - half of a chicken and a giant plate filled with beets, white sweet potatoes, carrots, and other seasonal veggies. The chicken skin was peppery and crispy, but the meat was almost melt in your mouth juicy. It was a nice dining room with very professional service - hearing the sound check over at the Pour House was kind of fun...put some James Island character into it.

Re: “Sweeney's

annac, when you declare "the lowcountry lacks service and pride in the food service industry",...oh bul%#@t. you are condemning the whole community. you can like one without insulting all the others.
After 40 years in the food service industry I can testify that most employees are motivated by pride. it aint the pay and glamor that keeps us going.

Re: “R. Kitchen

Best out of town restaurant dining experience my wife and I have ever had! We dropped in after seeing the place while walking to another restaurant. I immediately recognized Chef Ross from our dining at Leaf. The place was full (I think reservations only), but Chef Ross sat us anyway and that began a dining experience without equal. It was like sitting in the Chef's kitchen and having him prepare a 5 course meal on the spot just for us. All the other diners were just as amazed. WOW! I'm telling you this is where we will head on our next trip to Charleston.

Re: “Sweeney's

Love the food, the atmosphere and the people! If you can not afford to go out to eat than stay at home! Their prices are in line with any excellent restaurant!

Re: “Zero George Cafe + Bar

Had an outstanding meal here last week. Would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to try new, interesting and fun food. The service was great and all in all one of the highlights of our trip! Can't wait to come back and try the new dishes as chef mentioned they change weekly.
