What time will they be open on Fridays??
European eel is considered by some to be "critically endangered," while the Japanese species is perhaps in even worse shape.
North American eel harvests have always been far lower than the harvest of foreign species, by magnitudes. Presently the allowable harvests in Maine and Canada combined are under fifteen tons and actual catches about 2/3 of that amount. By contrast the Japanese and Europeans harvested glass eels by the hundreds of tons annually for over a decade.
Deepsea Throat calls the eel fishery "overregulated waste of time and joke." American eel has been reviewded for endangered species status by the U.S. government twice in the last ten years. Both times the agency said the eel population is below historic norms, however it is not in danger of extinction. In its most recent decision, October 2015, the Service cited improved regulation of the fishery as one of the reasons it is not endangered.
Fisherman should participate in the public forums where regulations are made in order to bring their real-world experience to the process. However, Deepsea is mistaken to call eel regulations a "joke." Without the regulations we would either lose the entire fishery or all the fish.

It was a great little grocery store for those of us that lived in the Citadel Terrace Area in the 40's and 50's.
Here's the story I wrote on the history of Harold's Cabin http://www.charlestoncitypaper.com/charles…
It did later become part of Piggly Wiggly where some of Jacobs' signature goods were also sold for many years.
Gloria, it's the site of Harold Jacob's store, "Harold's Cabin." He was, indeed, considered to be a great culinary influence on the Charleston scene, in his day. :)
Any idea why they named it "Harold's Cabin"? That was the name of the gourmet section of the Meeting St. Pig and that itself was based on a long-time Charleston caterer (according to someone who claimed to know "Harold"). Does it have any connection, other than just being in Charleston?
When can we expect it to open? I'll miss some of HF's signature dishes...and their staff !
5 loaves??? more like 5 turds (MP)
No more $8 hot dogs?

I had this and was amazed at how full I was. The cod fillet is 7-9 oz, he says, I think mine was closer to 11oz. With fries and a drink, you will not leave hungry. Good food.
This is great news! As long as he has lengua tacos of course.
Oyster House on Market 35 S. Market St. Lobster roll with your choice of one side included for only $19. Also, your choice of the served cold with mayo (lobster salad style) or served warm with a side of drawn butter. Both ways served on a nice buttery toasted roll. Yum!
