Re: “Ristorante LIDI gets it right with housemade delights

Well ... after reading this review .. there must be two places on DI named LIDI. .. Been twice and nevermore... service was poor especially at the bar .. the tenders went to the school where looking for patrons needs takes second place to chatting amongst selves ... and washing glassware...as for the food ... uninspired at best ... Olive Garden at twice the price...and a floor manager flitting around the room ...and accomplishing nothing

Couldn't succeed at 'Cesca or 17 North (still laughing at the 1lb hotdog on the menu there). Now trying the dinner dead zone that is Daniel Island? This place won't see 2015.

Re: “Bohemian Bull is a relaxing spot for burgers and beers

If I could ever find a place to park, I could try the food, lol. Good problem to have for them though.

Re: “Ristorante LIDI gets it right with housemade delights

I'm sorry, don't care how "authentic" the food is, those chincy red and white checkered table cloths have got to go. They scream "Welcome to Genaro's", or even worse La Fontana!

Re: “Bohemian Bull is a relaxing spot for burgers and beers

Actually went there twice- OK the first time, second time smelled smoke, looked up, and realized that there were nicotine addicts sitting right across the bar from me.
Outside, but still blowing smoke into the bar.
I complained, left, and never returned.

Re: “Bohemian Bull is a relaxing spot for burgers and beers

Troll, for someone who dislikes in/out bars, or funding them, you seem to have a lot of experience dining at BB. Keep on fighting the good fight, but don'tt inflate your dining experience.

As someone who dislikes smoking just as much as Troll, I can honestly say that me nor my gaggle of children who dine there frequently, have been affected or even noticed smoking. It is not even close to the dining area.

My complaint is salt. I feel like I need a gallon of water after I eat there. I may be ordering the wrong items, everything seems highly salted. It is a chill, kickback place. A nice conversion of a previous restaurant. Hope it stays successful.

Re: “Bohemian Bull is a relaxing spot for burgers and beers

I will, however, continue to post warnings about places with these in/out bars, or open roll up doors between the smoking and non- smoking areas, such as seem to be so prevalent in Mt. Pleasant.
People need to be warned about those places where they are not properly protected from secondhand smoke so they and their families, especially their children, can avoid these places.
Those who don't give a shit are welcome to ignore my warnings and patronize those places anyway.
I really don't give a shit myself about what others do to themselves, but it is not acceptable when their behavior is damaging to my health.
So smokers ( and vapors!), take your poison outside and have at.
Establishment owners, stop trying to circumvent the smoking ordinances, protect your non smoking majority of customers, and your employees, by making sure that we are not exposed to that poison.

Re: “Bohemian Bull is a relaxing spot for burgers and beers

Brew,
Try sitting at the bar across from the open windows to the outside bar, where the addicts sit and blow smoke in at you.
If they would keep those windows closed, and the outside smoke outside, then I would no longer have a problem with that place.
As long as the smokers and the smoke remain outside I'm good.

"The problem isn't outdoor smoking, it's the smoke being blown inside where it isn't supposed to be."

Why not bring this up to the management?

Not smoke free, not acceptable."

I have been there a few times and never once had an issue with smoke. I am all for the smoking ban inside establishments, but I don't have any issue with it outside. Many places I visit allow smoking outside, and I have never had issues at these establishments.

Re: “Don't try to mix and match the tacos at Sol Southwest

The customer service is HORRIBLE. I asked my server to substitute a taco shell with a piece of Bibb lettuce, which she kindly agreed to do. The manager then came to my table, with no introduction or hello, and stated: "I wanted to understand what you asked my server to do? And also, we'll do this today, but if the kitchen is busy on another day, we will not be doing this for you again." He then walked off. I will never be back. In a day when owners of restaurants should be happy that patrons are in the doors, customer service is a must. Horrible experience.

Re: “Bohemian Bull is a relaxing spot for burgers and beers

"Have you seen a lot of people going into cardiac arrest at B&B or something?"
Nope. but then again, I never saw anyone working with asbestos back in the day keel over from Mesothelioma, nor have I seen anyone eating a burger immediately die of a heart attack.

The problem isn't outdoor smoking, it's the smoke being blown inside where it isn't supposed to be.
And yes, I do take my business elsewhere.

Re: “Bohemian Bull is a relaxing spot for burgers and beers

I've been there, and many other bars and never been bothered by people smoking outdoors.

I'm not one, but many people enjoy smoking while they are drinking beer or liquor, which like cigarettes also contains unhealthy and potentially addictive ingredients.

Automobiles are spewing poison more poison than smokers every time you walk down the street downtown. Its not a big deal for 99 per cent of people apparently.

Have you seen a lot of people going into cardiac arrest at B&B or something? Usually if I don't like a place I go elsewhere rather than trying to dictate to people how they should run their business.

Re: “Bohemian Bull is a relaxing spot for burgers and beers

"Another one of these useless places that try to circumvent smoking protections by having one of those horrible in/out bars."

While I don't like smoking, I don't think their intention with this bar is to get around a smoking ban. I majority of their customers don't even smoke. They are going for the whole Beergarten theme, that is so popular. Popularity comes from the fact that Charleston has pretty nice weather (except for today). My only complaint is that their beer prices tend to be on the high side for a James Island bar.

You are on one side of the bar trying to enjoy your drink and food, the drug addicts are on the other side, technically outside, blowing their poison in at you.
Not acceptable.

Hope those holes in the driveway have been paved over or you could break and axle and lose your lunch at the same time.

Re: “Beach eats get elevated with the arrival of The Obstinate Daughter

Way overpriced (mimosa for $9 ?!?) & the service was horrible (this was on a slow afternoon, not in a packed restaurant). The "appetizer" salad was to die for, the pizzas just ok....
