Sometimes overly crowded. Doesn't stop me from going. Can't beat the champaign list.
Love the vibes at Lava. Also Larry can really cut some hair.
We tried this out a couple of weeks ago and found the pizza to be wonderful. It is a bit blackened on the edges, as the above reviewer said, but we also had pizza like that in Italy, so I'm wondering if it's more of a style issue than a technical issue. We also had the fries, which were fantastic, and the arrancini, which were outstanding.
Lava Salon is now located at 811-B Savannah Highway! Right next to Avondale Wine & Cheese....
Sadly, I can only review the customer service and the decor, not the food. I tried to eat at Heart on a recent Saturday and when I walked in it was busy, but not hectic and we were the only people waiting (just 2 of us, not a big party). No sign indicates whether to seat yourself, or wait to be seated. There was a young man behind the counter (within direct eyesight, and less than 6" away) but we were ignored by him for 2 minutes until he finally said in an off-handed, almost annoyed manner that he would help us "in a minute." TEN, minutes later he was still ignoring us despite still being behind the counter and still attending to other customers at the counter off and on. This young man pointedly avoided eye contact, and when one of us approached the counter again to pick up a menu to hopefully, and subtly, "remind" him that we were still waiting, he continued to refuse to make eye contact and turned his back without saying a word.
After 10 minutes of being ignored, we decided to leave and take our business elsewhere on JI and where we treated like we existed AND had a great lunch at another restaurant.
As for the decor, it's open and bright, if not a bit bare. The restaurant smells really good when you walk in, but as noted above, sadly I cannot attest to the food. The noise, however, is really loud, probably because there is nothing to absorb it in the concrete and cinderblock construction. Even without being seated I could barely hear anyone, even when 2 feet away from me.
I hope that I caught the Heart Woodfire Kitchen on a very, very bad day, because I like supporting local JI restaurants. However, I'm not sure that I would use my time giving this place a second chance when I know that I can go elsewhere and actually be acknowledged within 10 minutes of walking in. Sadly disappointed.
I'm usually a downtown guy, but I live in Summerville. I've always been skeptical of going to bars in my own area but I decided to give Montreax a try this past Friday night. I was surprised about how normal and young the clientele was, similar to being at a bar downtown. Had a few drinks which weren't expensive at all and had a great time with my friends. Definitely checking it out again.
Excellent store, covered most everything in working with beads.
This club sucks if for some reason the bouncer or the Asian mafia there doesn't
Like your look. I was there and only for maybe 15 or 30 min. In that time I met some great fun people. Then I needed to use the restroom which is down a sketchy hallway. As I left 2 thugs grabbed me ,beat me and broke my rib. For no apparent reason. I was leaving the next day or I would have pursued an assault charge. I am planning on calling the local police there. But I am thinking it won't go anywhere. You are warned.
BEER UNIVERSITY IS AWESOME!
Horrible service. Almost 1.5 hours for dinner. Every time is a long wait. Wish we had a better pub in West Ashley
Terrible company! I scheduled to have my two units delivered two weeks in advance and they did not show up on the scheduled date! I had movers all set up and I had to get out of the house I was renting. Needless to say this caused me a lot of problems. When the units did show up, one was leaking. All I ever got from Units was the run around. If there is ever a next time I would spend a little more and go with PODS!
I missed this shop so much when it was under a different name. Call me slow, but I just found out that Richard had reopened a sandwich shop again. (My grapevine is a little slow) It was great news to me. My lunch spot changed as soon as I heard Richard and Gloria were back making sandwiches. There are very few good sandwich shops in the area. This place more than fills the void! The Turkey Rasberry Chipolte or the Chicken buffalo wrap are my favorites.
It is great to have a small business that takes pride in their work. Food chains get boring. Richard's Coffee and More brings back a little spice to the Park Circle area. Be prepared for a local business supporting the local community with a smile and great food. Cheers Richard....Glad to have you and Gloria back! I will make sure to come through the doors more often!
We’ve been to Rutledge Cab Co twice. Our first trip was the second weekend they were open….Yep, had to wait an hour but the bar was full and fun so it wasn’t a major hardship. Enjoyed the food and service, they were jammed so we gave them a break on having to wait longer than expected for our meal. We had dinner there last night, it was awesome. Fish Sandwich was the best I’ve had. Our friend loved the Chopped Salad. We got seated right away and the service was smooth. Looks like they’ve got it together. I really wanted to like this place...... Looks like Wagner Terrace has a new hangout and a good one at that.
I've eaten here about 5 times and have had excellent service and food each time. Last time I had a confit of pork shoulder. I think it was likely the best pork dish I've ever tasted. It's a destination dish. If you ever see it on the menu, run don't walk.
Wow, I'm pretty surprised at how well-reviewed the Grocery is here. I went with a group of 10, and none of us was particularly pleased with the food. The service was great and the decor was nice, but the food was overpriced for what it was and I feel like there are other restaurants downtown with a similar concept and better execution. I will not be going back.
Our dinner was less than inspiring, the kabobs were ok but boring, the wings were the same as was the burger. The food was just very mediocre. Their house red wine was decent and a relatively good buy. The cocktail I had was unique and I enjoyed it. I thought it was pretty loud inside and outside, but service was good. I will be back to try the all day breakfast options, though.
We had such high hopes for this restaurant based on the CCP's write-up, especially since it said Crust has more than 20 beers on tap (http://www.charlestoncitypaper.com/Eat/archives/2013/02/11/crust-opens-tuesday-on-james-island). Well, they only have 6, and they are 6 pretty uninspired ones at that. The bottled beer selection wasn't much better. We started with the Bibb and beet salad, which was very good. The pizzas, however, were disappointing - quite blackened (we know, they're cooked in a wood-fire oven, but does that mean they have to be black?) and really not enough of the toppings. The crustacean 'za was better than the butternut one which had just the slightest smattering of vegetables on it - not enough to get past the "charcoal" taste. As I said, we had high hopes, but we won't be back. :-(
