We love to eat lunch at Sermets, and for some reason it has always been on a Sunday. We love their food but for some reason their bartenders are terrible. We always sit at the bar, perfect for people watching on King Street. The bartenders are very unfriendly. Never greet you, never give you a wine list without asking, and seem very slow on service of drinks. I fully understand that they are also servicing service bar, but if Sunday lunch is always busy, then maybe an extra bartender? Didn't even get a thank you this time. It's a shame as the food is fresh and great tasting, but service and surly bartenders can keep me away.

Mushy Peas is a fantastic name. Can't wait for this place to open to serve "proper" fish and chips with a side of mushy peas. Hopefully you will be open late night too? I already want a trip to the chippy :-) Looking forward to some clotted cream too.
Happy to see you reviewing Annie's. LOVE this place. Fresh and tasty and very authentic. Great house wine too. Not the easiest place to find, but take the time to search this place out, you will not be disappointed.
Typical - the worst "Irish bars" in Charleston are putting music on instead of the games!
The restaurant was nice and full and had a great atmosphere. The service at the bar started off great. Awesome wine by the glass and lots of traditional tapas. All of the food we had was awesome. The dates were crispy and tasty. Croquettes were the perfect crispness on the outside and lovely and runny on the inside. We also ordered pan con tomate ans were disappointed to see that it was already made. The enjoyable part of this dish is rubbing your own garlic and tomato on the bread. It was more of a bruschetta than the traditional dish with a tomato sauce (Italian style) on top than fresh tomato.
The weird part though was once our glass of wine was finished I wanted another one and couldn't get one. Both bartenders looked at my glass and they instead refilled our water twice, but never asked if we wanted another glass. They then spent time cleaning up the bar and refilling their water container instead of refilling people's wine glasses. Shame as the rest of the night was lovely. Oh well, we will try again, and hopefully I can enjoy two glasses of wine.
Still try going. Great food and the most authentic I have had in Charleston outside of Spain.
Awesome! Lovely restaurant ran by a husband and wife team. The wife does all of the cooking, and she is French. Lovely atmosphere, they are both very welcoming. We started with stuffed mushrooms that were very tasty. Followed with pork tenderloin - mmmmmmm mmmmmmm mmmmmmmm with the most incredible potatoes that were crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside. My husband had the sea bass and it literally fell off the bone (served as a whole fish). The fish was moist and very, very tasty. We finished with a cheese plate. Their wines by the glass that we had were priced great. What a lovely place. Hard to see, but it is opposite Lowe's and next to Relax the Back and FedEx. Take the time to visit this place. Lovely atmosphere and fantastic food.
