Re: “JB's Smokeshack

Coachz: Not so sure why you wanted water, but these guys have to make a living, you know. Did they have to buy the cup and make the ice? Did they have to take time to make it up? Were refills free? Do they pay for the cost of the water and the equally same sum for the sewer service? Electricity, rent, etc? Stay at McDonalds and Hardees. These are the places cheapskates frequent.

Re: “Wag Factory

I highly recommend Wag Factory, especially for daycare! I take my 7 month puppy here several times a week in order for him to play and socialize mostly outside. He is always super excited to go in and has a blast! I know because I can watch him on the cameras throughout my work day. The employees are friendly and always supervise the pets. The socialization dogs get is invaluable, and I will promote Wag Factory to anyone looking to be extra sweet to their pup!

Re: “JB's Smokeshack

They rock, so much better than Duke's BBQ. Their meat is actually has a smokey flavor compared to all the bland BBQ restaurants around. Its pretty cheap too.

Re: “Consign Charleston

OK, I don't like this place but not for any of the reasons already mentioned. Dan Blake is correct, Jules is either completely clueless or is a competitor. ( by the way, Jules, yes I'm sure they have insurance, but the price of replacing the glass would be less than the deductible so they would have to pay for it anyway) Hollyplay, I've sold through them and they don't "sell someone else's junk at a 500% mark-up". First, they make 50% of the sales price, and they've refused many good items I've tried to sell through them. Holly, you're just as full of it as Jules. I'm wondering which it is, are you piling on or defending Jules? Either way you're just BS

Re: “Consign Charleston

Nope. Jules1990 is right - they are total rip-off artists. Acting as if they are doing you a favor by trying to sell someone else's junk at a 500% mark-up. Save yourself some time & just go to Goodwill or Habitat ReStores...at least the people who work there are friendly. If I could give Consign Charleston .25 stars, I would.

Re: “Consign Charleston

So you paid for the glass, (you didn't have to,as you pointed out)
And left your CC info with them, (illegal, as you pointed out) And THEN , YOU were supposed to pick up the glass at the glass shop and take it over !?!?!?
Sounds like you work for "the competitors" shop ! BTW: you tried to open a large trunk, with a larger piece of glass on it ? 1- you had to lift the glass to get at the trunk, 2- you have to be an idiot not to think that it wasn't going to fall off, (do you turn over a glass top table, with the glass on it ?) This is a FAKE REVIEW !!!!!

Re: “Consign Charleston

God if ONLY I could rate this s*** hole with less stars. Let me start this out by saying I work in retail management and I have never seen such a horrifying display of "customer service" in my entire career. My fiance and I were shopping here looking to furnish our recently purchased home. He was checking out an old storage trunk and went to open it to check out the condition of the inside when the unsecured glass top slid off and shattered, a surprise seeing that there was no "do not open" sign anywhere and the trunk itself wasn't locked. Being that we are good people and have shopped there before we agreed to pay to replace the glass top ($55) but not after one of the employees said that we would potentially have to pay full price for the item ($1200), yeah not going to happen especially considering that an accidental damage like this is covered under THEIR insurance and we legally didn't have to pay to replace the glass in the first place. Not only did no one bother to ask if we were okay after being stuck surrounded by broken glass, but they demanded that they get a copy of his licence and credit card information (which by the way is ILLEGAL). When the glass was ready from the shop (two blocks away from Consign Charleston) my fiance called to see if they would be able to pick it up since we live 45 minutes away and he was stuck working overtime. The woman of the phone promptly told him that "he could have been half way (to the shop) already if he'd stop complaining", and then threatened to charge his credit card if he didn't get it delivered that same day. I have since tried to get in contact with the manager twice since this has happened so we could rectify the issue, and both times I was told that she was not there and that I'd have to come back later (I had to pry information for a name and time when she'd be there). I'm very happy to have experienced this before we made any major buys from them, and I hope that they are very happy with the $55 glass top and not the $9,600+ we've spent on furnishings at their competitor's shops since this incident.

Re: “1st Choice HVAC Services

After quoting us almost $1000 in new duct work, we had a second opinion. Work was not needed and we canceled service. They agreed to refund the deposit. However, never did, refuse to take our calls. Horrible way to treat long term customers. Now that we have checked Better Business Bureau and County Court. We see a LONG line of complaints and small claims cases against Bob Whittemore and his company in the past few years. Stay away.

Re: “Halls Chophouse

I frequent Halls quite often both for personal enjoyment and for business entertainment. I have never had a bad time, a bad meal or a bad experience. It has always been over the top good in all 3 categories. We are fortunate to have the Hall family and Hall's Chophouse here in Charleston!

Re: “Halls Chophouse

My husband and I treated my parents at Hall's Saturday evening. This was one of the best meals I have ever eaten. My Dad placed his bone-in filet as one of the top three steaks he has had in his life. My husband's bison was so tender and delicious I had to stop myself from stealing it. My veal chop was tender, juicy, perfectly cooked, and tasted the way a pampered baby animal should. My Mom enjoyed the sides so much that she was kind enough to save half of her prime rib for the next day which we turned into cheesesteak breakfast sandwiches for brunch Sunday morning.

Our service team never left us in want of anything. If not for seeing the other diners, we all felt like we were the only people in the room.

There are many great restaurants in Charleston, but, Hall's is definitely the place to go for a memorable experience.

Re: “Folly Beach Shrimp Company

There was a HUGE miscommunication between our party and Shrimp Co. We had a party of about 55 people (give or take) show up unexpectedly. They stepped up to the plate and did an amazing job serving us from the bar as well as from the kitchen. Despite the stress and craziness, their staff was fun, friendly and more than willing to take on the daunting task of having an unexpected party our size. I'll definitely be coming here again and recommending then to everyone I know! P.S. Aside from their awesome service, their BBQ nachos and Crab Cakes are AMAZING!!!

The food is delicious and the people are so friendly and accommodating. Brought my 93 year old mother here for Mother's day and we both had a great time and an even better meal! We've been back a number of times, and plan to keep coming. The She Crab Soup IS the best in town.

Re: “Husk Restaurant

"amberjack is a wonderful fish, both robust and flaky at the same time, a fish deserving of being allowed to be tasted on its own merit with subtle accents to complement its texture and inherent flavor"

That's gotta be the nicest thing ever written about an ol' sea donkey.

Re: “Husk Restaurant

Mrs cp and I finally got around to going to Husk this evening.

Long story short, in our opinion by far the most overrated restaurant in Charleston.

Mind you nothing was inherently terrible, but not a notable dish to be found. Also mindful that expectations are the building blocks of disappointment we tried to be as objective as possible ... still, most of dinner was spent trying to locate the 'great' and trying to figure out what the fuss is all about.

Things started out goodish, with a bean salad for mrs soulsea and the chicken skins for me. Granted it's a little weird having a heated salad as an appetizer but it did taste good, as did the chicken skins.

Our main course went as follows ... mrs cp is a vegetarian and we are fully aware that most restaurants we go to her choices will be limited. But in every quality restaurant we've ever dined at the chef will create something special for vegetarians, especially if said chef never took the time to insert even one vegetarian dish amongst their main courses to begin with, which quite frankly is unheard of in 2014. What was the chef's offering for her tonight you ask? Assorted grilled/fried vegetables. That's right, the chef at Husk put together the exact same dish that the chef at Outback always suggests, and they were both equally impressive.

'chili pimp you asshat it's your fault for not knowing that everything including the water is prepared in pork fat at Husk, as such it's your fault for seeking a vegetarian dish there' I hear you say. Fair enough, so let me tell you about my dish. I ordered the amberjack. Now keep in mind that amberjack is a wonderful fish, both robust and flaky at the same time, a fish deserving of being allowed to be tasted on its own merit with subtle accents to complement its texture and inherent flavor. Instead it was swimming in a sauce comprised of a cacophony of ingredients imagined in the mind of a chef that would rather overthink the obvious than leave well enough alone. Seriously dude, fish plus a few precise elements not fish and all of them. All I tasted was the soup he called a sauce and the fish might as well have been bread to the palate. Ugh!

Deserts were bland end equally too clever for their own good taste.

We're glad we went but we will not be going back.

They must have a hell of a PR dept. cause I can name at least fifteen better Charleston restaurants than Husk, and half of them are tourist traps. To go back to the original point ... it is still a complete mystery to us what the Husk fuss is all about.
