My husband and I stopped in for a drink and a small bite to eat at the bar last night. Unfortunately we were not particularly impressed. I ordered the "Mac-hattan," which was the worst Manhattan I have ever had - it was really watered down and had ice chips floating in it, presumably from over-shaking. The octopus panzanella was not much better. The octopus was nicely cooked, but everything else on the plate buried the delicate sweetness of the octopus. The heavily buttered mushy croutons and roasted root vegetables were really fatty and heavy, the bitter greens on the plate could have been a nice contrast to the heaviness of everything else, but they were drowned in a dressing reminiscent of Hidden Valley Ranch. Basically it lacked balance and was crying out for some acid. On a high note, my husband enjoyed his rabbit and the Avery Ellie's Brown Ale on draft. We'll give them one more shot for a whole dinner, but my expectations will be a bit lower next time.

It's awfully naive of you to believe that the DHEC staff were not "encouraged" to change their permit decision by the board. The reversal only took place after a meeting with the board where their opinion on the matter was made clear to staff. By forcing staff to do the dirty work the board and the governor can look like they weren't meddling.
Is this place still open? It looked very (permanently) closed last time I walked by.
So incredibly bad. Brunch took two hours to get cold, horrible food. We should have know when the waiter exclaimed "Oh, I never wait on locals!" I don't know why we were stupid enough to go here, but we will not repeat the mistake.
Multiple studies have shown that there is absolutely no health benefit to this. Get a clue and do some research before paying someone to torture you.
I agree with Lass. Quit your disgusting habit or stand outside. I feel no sympathy for the "rights" of smokers.
