Re: “Burwell's Stone Fire Grill

Absolutely loved my experience at Burwell's. Food, atmosphere, and service were spot on.

Re: “Sweeney's

This restaurant is CLEARLY for Kiawah snobs. Not Johns Island residents. I've lived here for 21 years. They may make it but it won't be from Johns Island people.

Take your screaming child away from other paying customers until he calms down. Problem solved.

Re: “Poe's Tavern

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.

Re: “Threshold Repertory Theatre

Terrific company downtown to see good theatre. They do a lot with the smaller space and it is very comfortable. Creative sets and lighting and quality productions.

Re: “Poe's Tavern

"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.

Re: “Xiao Bao Biscuit

one general question? Do the owners of these restaurants we see reviewed each week ever read them? If so, then I would hope to see some changes. When the general problem is price and quantity, why don't they change? I know all about price points. It costs a lot to run a restaurant. But overcharging for small quantities, and folks reporting it on a regular basis, means you'll go the way of so many little food joints we see shuttered after the owners tire of losing money.

Re: “Poe's Tavern

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.

Re: “Black Bean Co.

I never take the time to write a review but this is worth saying... Black Bean Co. was THE WORST food experience I have ever had! I have never been so Angry about a restaurant experience! The service was rude, they got my order wrong and the food itself was HORRIBLE. My wrap seemed like it was pre-made and refrigerated over night because it was so tasteless, dry, with no sauce (which there was supposed to be) and barely any guacamole, and my "side" (it was the size of a salad dressing container) of pasta salad was DISGUSTING because it was frozen and clumped together, dry, and completely tasteless. I feel sick to my stomach now, because of the bad food and the fact that I WAY WAY OVER-PAID for this "food". How can this restaurant be on King St. in Charleston?! Ugh, so gross!

Re: “Poe's Tavern

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.

Re: “The Foodie Truck

Where are you guys?! I work downtown and every Friday I'd notice your truck at the True Value parking lot on E Bay. You hooked me with the pork belly steam buns early summer. Then the battleship & the bloody mango slushie. Then the oyster sliders after that. I also remember those delicious crispy pork tacos & then that delicious okra side dish. The fries were the best too. Sniff, I miss U guys...and the calamari!
Your number one fan, lee

Re: “Hello My Name is... BBQ

I became a fan of HMNIBBQ from their truck. Now that they have a brick and mortar location, I eat at HMNIBBQWHQ at least once a week. I really enjoy the quirky combinations of toppings and sauces. Grilled pineapple, pimento cheese, bbq bacon, and sriracha mayo is one of my favorites. For sauces they always have sweet red, vinegar, and mustard. Specialty sauces rotate regularly and include Green And Bold, which is made from green pepper jelly; Pineapple Habanero; Pear Bubbly; and Cherry Cola, just to name a few. Recently they have been making ghost pepper sauces. If you like your food to bite back, here's one place where you can match the spice to your tolerance.

The food is good, the service quick and friendly, and the prices fair.

Re: “Xiao Bao Biscuit

I went with a large group. I had the intention of getting myself an appetizer since the prices are on the steep end for me. I get there and my friends tell me that due to the size of the party, we are getting one check that has to be split evenly. If I'm getting charged $20-25 no matter what, I decided to get $20-25 worth of food. That ended up being the Stir-Fried Chili Shrimp and one or two beers. The shrimp was amazing. However, there's no indication on the menu that it's very spicy. It was what I call a "hurts so good" experience - I was chugging my water my lips were in so much pain but otherwise it was amazing. It was very good, but for the small menu and the high prices I probably won't be back anytime soon.

Re: “Sweeney's

Well, hutch, most places are doing 6-8oz of ground beef. You may have noticed that food is getting expensive, especially proteins. There is a bun involved, some toppings, and a side. In this case, it sounds like the soup came with. 30% food cost would certainly not be out of line, and $11 would therefore be pretty easy to get to with decent ingredients. "Kobe" beef from Australia or wherever would be more expensive than that, and true Kobe beef would be way more expensive. Where DO you like to eat? What local restaurants fit your criteria? Personally, if I were a restaurant worker or owner, which I am not, I would probably just prefer you stay at home instead of coming in anyway. You'd probably also complain about the prices at those fancy Mt. P butchers, though. You are right though about the fact that lots of burgers are ridiculously priced and mediocre. That is why I pointed out that execution and ingredients make the difference.

Re: “Sweeney's

Place is priced high. Seriously too high. As in these guys are in line with The MacIntosh in their prices without delivering as good a meal high. In a strip mall. On John's Island. Good luck with that.
