I agree with another reviewer about this being a great "go-to" place. If you have people in town or a group for lunch or dinner its a nice, inexpensive place to go. Plus they have great service. I was there this weekend (and I go a lot) and when my food came out, randomly the ham was missing from my ham bocadillo. I wasn't upset, I could tell it was an honest mistake and was happy to eat my truffle fries while they fixed it. The waitress took it off the bill without us even asking. And she removed our friend's beer b/c he didn't' care for it. Completely unnecessary, but appreciated. Those type of touches in service is what makes it such a go-to place for people in town.

You're shocked that City Paper would report on this story? Not only is extremely local taking place on Sullivan's Island, but google Mark Sanford and at this moment the top three stories are about the NRCC abandoning their monetary support of his campaign. There is an entire article in this weeks issue devoted to Colbert-Busch's deleted tweets revealing her democratic views. Now I think most people know that City Paper leans left, but this isn't a case of being out of line. Its newsworthy.
I love the idea of some friendly competition/comparison with another southern city. I hope Nashville does bring it to the table (pun intended) and I am excited to see what our Lowcountry celebrity chefs and restaurateurs can continue to come up with. I'll no doubt be biased to Charleston either way!
I seriously liked this place. Great curry...and guess what? It's only $8 for a very delicious, generous portion. remember the days of Basil being inexpensive? This is seriously good curry at a great price! Also solid dumplings and the crab and shrimp sandwich was also delightful.
I thought the food was great for the price. This isn't super nice dinner place. its a good standby in the making.
I don't think Pete Wells was mean, I think he was standing up for the consumer. It is wasn't snobbery, it was asking for more respect. Fieri stamped his name on something that sounds like it has nothing to do with who he is as a chef...or maybe who he was before he sold out.
I agree with Mr. Moss on every point in this article. but please don't write reviews to be nice. Readers depend on you to hold a food establishment accountable to the products they put out.
Its not really about is Folly alive or dead. It's about what do residents and business owners want it to become? Charleston in general has changed over the last decade. It is growing and more people than ever are visiting (how many top ten lists have we been on in the past couple years - top 10 tourist destinations, top wedding destination, Friendliest Cities, etc..). We need to support tourism because it supports us, but we need to face reality that our sleepy town is changing and people aren't just coming for the history downtown anymore. Banning alcohol is likely not the best answer, but I agree that some sort of regulation needs to happen. And that regulation, like the leash laws, can be limited to the summer months. I doubt there are party buses heading out there in November.
Who could begrudge the residents their rage? People come to their town and treat it like trash and leave. And don't just point to tourists, there are a lot of Charleston folks getting drunk and doing it to.
