Re: “Boone's Bar

We had all Of medical school here and they treated us like crap- we brought them business and they even kicked one of us out because he "touched" an empty keg by the bathroom apparently "depressurized" it when he first got here. The service is terrible, watch out! Bad experience.

Re: “Red Orchids

I have been there a lot the food is Great! they seem to cater too the Locals that's where you find the owner if they don't change how they treat there customer there MT pleasant want last! but I hope it does, maybe they will read this post and understand what people are saying? a complaint is a gift, it gives you time to make the changes and if you do you will succeed, if not then social media will kill your business but I do recommenced it for the food and to all the haters I have been there over 15 times the food not there problem. Good luck I wish you well

Re: “Page's Okra Grill

I am so confused by these reviews... Local food? You mean pancakes and fried chicken? This place is GROSS and for some reason always packed and therefore incredibly slow. I could see it being awesome if I was completely high or it was 3am or something. But then I'd rather have Waffle House's fresh local waffle or hashbrowns.

Re: “Page's Okra Grill

Page's is hands down the best restaurant in Mount Pleasant. Food is excellent, staff friendly and accommodating and prices very reasonable. We eat there three or four times a week and have never been disappointed. I cannot understand the negative post above unless it was written by a disgruntled employee who just couldn't measure up.

Re: “Luckhaus & Brubaker Sweets & Treats

My wife and I stopped in last week as I kept noticing out of the corner of my eye driving by to and from Johns Island. I'm so "HAPPY" we stopped in as to our surprise everything for a sweet tooth was covered. Why go downtown for a cupcake when you can find one better here. The selection of tarts, cakes, candies, and other sweet treats was amazing. I wish them the best. Start spreading the news, you will be happy beyond belief.
Best of luck to hard working individuals.

Re: “Slightly North of Broad

I only gave them 4 stars because they took their delicious pad thai off the lunch menu.

It was wonderful.

Re: “Philly's Cheesesteaks

philly native who tried this sub shop for the first time today. their cheesesteak is legit and left me satisfied. I was never a fan of whiz so I don't hold it against them that it isn't available. while I prefer crisper bread the roll was decent with a good balance between a soft/crisp texture.

its a small place that feels like its family run. i sat inside and my order was brought out promptly. staff from the register to the lady who brought out the food were welcoming and friendly. decent prices too.

Re: “Upper Deck Tavern

The male bartender was awesome and he took over in the case of the negligence and rudeness of the female bartender. The female bartender was just plain nasty. She took an order from a guy standing right next to me when i clearly was before him then when i tried to get her attention she yelled "you have to wait a aminute" and served two more customers before me. I asked for Grenadine which they had in a bottle and she grabs a tray of cherries from the holder and poured the juice right in my drink. The other bartender made me a fresh drink but still :-P Also Karaoke Chris was rude. When It was my turn to sing on the Mic. Im an African american female and there was one african american male in the building and I guess it was Chris friend and said on the mic "hey man I couldn't tell the difference between you two" and started laughing to his underlying racial joke. But with my beautiful self i stole the show and he shut up. But Its a shame that 2014 I had was witness to ignorance of this sort in my own hometown. And I will definitely let the world know!!!!!

Re: “Hominy Grill

IHOP may not have the shrimp with their grits, but definitely has better food and better service than this place...the Hyman's of comfort food describes it well. Best tourist trap is the only Best of Charleston award Hominy deserves. Zero stars!

Re: “Hominy Grill

After 15 years of eating at Hominy Grill on occasion, I had a craving for shrimp & grits recently and stopped by for lunch all by myself. I was shocked at the disgusting glob of goo that was presented to me...it just LOOKED terrible. Regardless of the appearance, I dived in and, yes, looks weren't deceiving - it was TERRIBLE. After reading year after year about the BEST shrimp & grits in Charleston, I finally tried it & it was awful. The service wasn't much better. What a shame. The two stars are for easy access to parking & the guy bussing tables that finally came over & took this atrocity from my table.

Re: “Bay Street Biergarten

I didn't go there for the beer (so my rating is for the food only)... and had the Pork Schnitzel and Kaesespaetzle twice now. 1st time I was positively surprised by the taste, 2nd time 2 weeks ago not so much - the Schnitzel was not cooked/fairly raw and the batter didn't even stick to the meat; the Kaesespaetzle had more cheese than Spaetzle and was more like a soup. I know how it's done right, I'm a German. At the community tables it's disruptive if someone wants to use their cards...you got to move out of the way and it seems hard to keep the tables bussed..so you kind of put the previous guest's dishes away to the side yourself and hope a waiter/waitress doesn't think it's yours.
The staff is friendly and accomodating; the atmosphere fairly loud inside and it's a loooong wait for a table. I like the interior and the outside. Hopefully this place gets the kinks worked out - has lots of potential to be the IT-spot.

Re: “DeSano Pizza Bakery

Finally made it over to DeSano's last night. I will start off by saying it was the best pizza we have had in quite awhile. My husband, son, and I shared the Diavolo and San Gennaro. Both were excellent. Those little calabrian peppers are fantastic. We could not stop eating them. I hope there is a place in town where I can buy some.

The woman working at the front counter was very friendly and funny. That being said, I do agree with the other comments on the strange layout. The drink options are strange. No wines by the glass or tap beer. Maybe something with their type of license? They had a pitcher of water in the dining room, but only one and it got empty quick and they kept having to fill it up. How about a couple of pitchers and maybe even leave some at the tables? I don't like the no plate thing and the flimsy, useless plastic utensils. Sorry, call me an amateur but I like to eat pizza with a knife and fork.

All in all, a good experience. It was definitely on the expensive side so if you are looking to feed your family for not too much money, then maybe save this place for another time. I would definitely bring my own wine next time. That seems to be the best way to go and balance out the higher priced pies.

Re: “Prohibition

I have not had the pleasure of dining there yet, but will tell you that each of the six or so times I have been, I have been able to hear my friends talking, which is uncommon in most of the bars on upper King Street. Sitting back Saturday night and watching a good looking defense end looking Charleston boy show off his shag moves to his girl was just wonderful. You could tell, his mother taught him well. Other your me tried to free style to "Carolina Girl", which just did not cut it with their ladies or the crowd. Girls gathered and swayed, waiting for a guy to come and ask them to shag. They were pretty and the guys just did not get it. That was sad. However, the other fellow stole the floor and he knew it.

Being able to see the jazz guys that used to play at Mistral from afar is awesome and I would never think that I would have seen that in a bar on Upper King Street. Even DJ Matt Todd was setting up as I was leaving, who could often be heard at LIGHT, Peter Evans' place down the street (of Stella Nova fame..) He will nail what the crown and the bar wants - and keeping it on the low key and not loud side will continue to be a pay off for this place.

Finally, NICE ladies at the entrance to meet you, greet you, and help you get a table and identify if you want food service or just drinks. Nice to have someone paying attention to you in a lovely way at the door - the way that it should be.

Re: “Charleston Music Hall

Groundhog Day concert - I didn't know what to expect but the entire show was outstanding. It really showcased the quality and strength of the local music scene here in Charleston.
The Music Hall facility is hands down the best venue for concerts if you want to hear and see the artists.
