Re: “H&L Asian Market

On a trip to Charleston with my Mom I googled Asian stores and H & L Supermarket came up with good reviews, so we made it one of our stops. We spent almost a $100 in groceries, including a can of coconut juice which I took a sip of before heading out. Well, the coconut juice tasted rancid and spoiled, even the coconut pulp was yellowish - a bad batch of coconuts or something. In any case I went back in to exchange it for a different can. I very cordially and respectfully ( I never get rude or snide, not my style) explained the situation to the manager lady but she obstinately refused to exchange the coconut juice, insinuating that I was lying and then told me to complain to the company that made it. Even after repeatedly letting her know that I truly wanted to be able to write her store a good review and spread good word of mouth to people I meet (hint,hint) she remained stubborn then rudely walked out on me. For their utterly abhorrent customer service, my Mother and I will never ever patronize this business again.

Re: “Charleston Beer Works

The new location is great. Having an outdoor patio to go to out to is great for our running group that meets up there. All the other reviews are out dated and should be removed since they are about it's previous location.

Re: “Normandy Farm Artisan Bakery

The food, beer, and coffee was as awesome as the guys running it. Definitely a highlight of our trip!

Re: “Sermet's Southernterranean Cuisine-Bar

Went there about two weeks ago. Food delicious. I especially liked that Sermet filled out water. No snobbery there. Great food, great staff, great vibe. We'll definitely be back

Re: “Roses and Ruins

Had a piece done at the Summerville location in 2013 by Emily Elegado (Tattoos by M) for which I still receive compliments. The entire staff there was professional and extremely talented. Two of the artists donated three hour sessions for a local charity raffle. Scheduled a time to go see the first draft and it was perfect and skin-ready. The going rate at the time was $100 an hour, and I was so impressed after her completing the line work that I tipped $100. I still get questioned on where I got the work done and recommend the artist and shop to anyone.

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.

Re: “Red's Ice House Seabrook

My wife and I went to the beach with our dog. As we left we wondered if Red's was dog friendly. They were more than dog friendly, they gave us a great seat on the deck and brought our big dog a bowl of water. Almost every customer and server stopped by our table to pay him some attention.

The service and food were really good and the staff were super friendly.

We've been back twice since then for the all-you-can-eat crab legs and loved it. The wait during summer was pretty bad (it never crossed my mind that it was tourist season until we got there), during the off-season we never had to wait for a table.

Comparing the Seabrook location to the Mt Pleasant location it's hard to believe it's the same restaurant, the vibe is so different. The Mt Pleasant Red's is much more "rustic" and like a bar that happens to serve seafood. If that's your thing great, I prefer the more open and airy Seabrook location for it's laid back atmosphere. It's mid July as I write this and I can hardly wait for September, when I plan to be back at Red's.

Re: “Red's Ice House Seabrook

Our meal was so horrible that I cannot even rate it with 1 star. Meal took 40 minutes to arrive at the table, food was ice cold. Burger arrived 10 minutes later - cooked well done vs med rare as ordered. The lettuce in the grilled tuna salad was rancid and rotting. Manager comped entree portion of the meal - but worse was the attitude - she really did not care. I'm local and posting on every blog I can find.
