Re: “Sermet's Southernterranean Cuisine-Bar

Great food! Ate there for the first time last week and absolutely loved everything about it. Our waitress was attentive and just as awesome as our food! Definitely will return often. Goal is to try everything on the menu - something yummy each visit!

Re: “The Pub on 61

Convenient location from our apartment, and we heard from a friend they serve $5 burgers on Tuesday nights so we went up to check it out. The place has definitely been smoker-friendly in the recent past, so you might notice your clothes have a stale smoke smell when you leave. However, the burgers were really tasty, and there are several great beers on tap, plus what looks like a well stocked liquor supply. They also have trivia on Tuesday, as we learned once we arrived, and it's free to play! Prizes are bar cash. Overall a good neighborhood spot and a very tasty $5 burger. We'll be back!

Re: “Amalfi's Italian Restaurant and Pizzeria

We went to Amalfi's last night.. it was the best food I have ever had the pleasure of eating! The bread comes to the table with a plate of oil and herbs for dipping -- the bread is heavy and filling and tastes so, so good! I got the tomato soup and fettuccine alfredo. The tomato soup was the best I have ever had. It was so creamy and had pieces of tomato in it and just burst with flavor. The fettuccine was so soft and creamy and the best pasta ever. My husband had tortellini, which I tasted, and am not usually a fan of, but again.. Amalfi's did not disappoint!

The vibe was lovely as well as it felt rather intimate/romantic and of course italian. We probably would never have found this place if we hadn't been actively looking for local cuisine in Mount Pleasant and I would agree with the previous reviewer who called it a "hidden gem". I would recommend to anyone who wishes to have a lovely italian meal or a nice date night.

Also, I did want to point out -- it was not overly expensive and actually quite affordable .. for the two of us (no wine or dessert) it was in the $20 range before tax to give you an idea as I understand different people have different understandings of what "affordable" is. Another side note as well.. this was incredibly filling. We would have tried a dessert otherwise.. Will have to try for that next time =)

Re: “Sesame Burgers & Beer

So, I considered giving this 2 stars, but went with 3 because the food itself is not the issue. The food.. the recipes.. they are quality and very tasty. However, EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.. we have EVER been to this location.. our order is wrong in some way or another. It is usually things like telling the server not to put this or that on your burger and be VERY clear and forward about it and then you still receive it with all the stuff you did not want. This is a problem. I have food allergies and even if I did not.. it's just not okay. Listen to your customers. Don't just assume you are going to remember the order to relay to the BOH .. it's all very irritating especially since I LOVE Five Loaves.. it's in fact, one of my local favorites, but we have been so many times to this location of Sesame Burger hoping for a nice meal, but we are to the point now where we have stopped going.

Re: “Skoogie's

I LOVE Skoogies and we go there on a regular basis, driving all the way from Goose Creek. I know their Chicago style hot dog seems to be quite popular, but my personal favorite is the polish dog with Chili and Mustard (i love the chili!) and my husband gets the roast beef melt. Also, the fries are great too.. and the seasoning ... now I want Skoogies lol.

Re: “Red's Ice House Seabrook

Interesting to see such a 180 degree difference in the ratings....and experiences. The fact that it is alllllll the way over on Seabrook Is. means my chances of going all the way from Summerville are slim and none.

Re: “Royall Ace Hardware

The neighborhood hardware stores, especially Royal, gives customer service. That is lacking in most big-box stores. Even if a few cents more, the knowledge of the employees is worth it.

Re: “Shem Creek Bar and Grill

"This seafood restaurant boasts two bar areas — an inside bar shaped like the bow of a boat with three beers on tap, and an oyster bar toward the back, decorated with fishing gear."

Actually, it has three bars. The third is the only dock bar on Shem Creek (as in, it's built on pilings over the creek).

This place has been in business in 1982. The food is good, including the steaks, but service can be a inconsistent.
