local. surfer. fab cook. yoga student. life lover!
We had dinner here recently and loved it! The coconut shrimp appetizer was yummy, as was my mandarin duck salad - the duck was perfect, juicy and more than I expected on the salad. My husband had the teriyaki shrimp and devoured it. I had the spicy crunchy yellowtail sushi and give it many kudos.
It was nice of Sean to introduce himself and check on us a few times. The service was great.
And I highly recommend the red wine/sake sangria. Holy cow, it was fantastic!
I love how people are judging Cuff when they don't even know him. I also believe his comments were taken out of context. Cuff is a really nice guy, and to the JI Local who's been surfing the washout for 35 years, you should know who Cuff is. I met Cuff at the Washout, where I didn't go to surf until I knew I could do something other than drop in and ride the whitewater straight to shore. Anyone who is serious about becoming a surfer and part of the surfing community would never go to the washout to learn to surf. Cuff is an EXCELLENT surfer and a really nice guy as well. Sometimes the more experienced surfers get a little upset when there's a bunch of kooks floating on the inside, dropping in on great waves even after being hooted at, and causing potential danger for more than just themselves. I don't like yelling at people, but had a guy drop in on my last year and put a giant gash in the rail of my board. Because I'm a girl, he didn't listen when I hooted him from dropping into the wave that I was already riding. I made him give me money to buy some epoxy to fix my board, which he didn't like but agreed to after some of the others in the water told him he was totally in the wrong (he paddled back out bad-mouthing me). Anyway, people who don't know what they're doing should not surf the washout (or the pier, for that matter). Wait until you've got some experience and then you could find yourself a nice community to be a part of, if that's what you want. I felt it in my soul when I was learning, so I made sure to do everything the right way, including not surfing the washout until I knew I wouldn't kook out in front of everyone.
I also have to say, Good job, Kristin! I'm glad they picked you to interview - you're a great surf sister!!
Lamest complaint ever! First time on Folly? First time in a city where homes have driveways that are only for those residing in said home?
Get a life!
Locals picked Pet Smart? What a shame! With stores like not only Dolittle's, but All is Well, Lucia's and Hairy Winston, you wouldn't think our low country lovers would choose a big box store as their favorite.
We gave the Conch a 2nd chance not too long ago, and were - once again - terribly disappointed. Bad service and the food is definitely nothing to go back for. After their recent review in the P&C, I've learned that they don't even use local shrimp, which is just another reason to permanently mark them off the list. How can a "local" restaurant not use shrimp from our hard-working shrimpers???
The Conch SUCKS.
We love supporting local eateries, and living not too far from Cibo's, we usually order take-out from them every other week... sometimes weekly. We've never had anything bad. The pizza's great, the calzones, sandwiches, salads, wings... I don't know how in the world someone could have "horrible" food from Cibo's. Ridiculous! I've never eaten AT Cibo's, so I cannot comment on how it looks, but the staff has always been friendly on the phone. When we get delivery, the drivers are always very kind. James Island locals know that Cibo's has great food.
