I'd like to address a couple of the reviews as the owner and possible clear up some confusion here. We offer a "lunch special" of our Flavored shrimp Basket. A couple of you have complained about only 8 or 9 shrimp in the basket. It is a lunch special and it's ONLY $5.99
and come with fries and cole slaw.
You can get a full order of 18 shrimp with fires and cole slaw for only $11.99. Come on these are great prices for any restaurant and we only serve fresh local shrimp. If you desire more shrimp in your basket at lunch , try ordering the regular size. How many shrimp do you expect for $5.99.....Wendy's runs more than that.
...."flavored shrimp basket, just short of miraculous!"

I ate lunch there and had a hard time finding the shrimp in the shrimp basket. It was all fries with 8 or 9 shrimp. I guess all the fuss must be about the music because it sure isn't about the decor. At least I wasn't there when the dog was. Is it just me or were the front steps incredibly hard to climb?
Go for the TVs and drinks, but not for the food. I took a friend here during the week for lunch and was seriously disappointed.
An appetizer that didn't come out until our entrees, stale chips with said appetizer, congealed cheese on the sandwiches, cold food (hence the congealed cheese). Come on, in a town like Charleston you have to serve great food all the time, and there's no excuses for any of the issues we (both) had.
I would probably go back in with friends to watch a game and have some drinks, but I definitely won't be back in to eat, not when there is too many other great places nearby!
I was by there last week and couldn't believe what they have done with the place. It looked 120% better than it did. Beachy, Key West feeling and the Shrimpburger was fantastic. I'd never had one before....what a find. Thanks for coming to Mt. Pleasant BuddyRoe. I will be back for the music.
I recently visited buddyroes on my way home from the beach. They let me bring my dog in on the back deck which was nice. Never heard of a shrimp burger before so I ordered it and it was really good. Loved the special sauce. Sweet potato fries were good too. Will be back soon. Surprised about the negative comments. My food and service was great!!!
Great clientele, customer service and food. Definately a place to go for a night out!
There was only maybe 9 shrimp on my sandwich and when asked for a refill on tea and the waitress brought back a 1/2 glass of water.
Wings is a great bar and on every tuesday they have this live singer named Chris Sullivan who is amazing. He has a soulful sound that I can only relate as Cash meets Springsteen, but he is an awesome act to say the least.
I Wish I had more than two thumbs to put up. If you are looking for a quiet place to relax...maybe you should try somewhere else. However, if you're looking for the north area's best kept secret, look no further. The entire bar staff is outstanding! Josh, Marcus, Mandy, Starr, and April, along with the rest of the staff, owners, and bands that play there are what gives this little bar such amazing character. Black chalkboard walls that constantly change, a selection of music that rivals most radio stations, and food that is out of this world...what more could you ask for? Now, if you're not coherent enough to remember to pay your tab and get your card back at the end of the night...you might just have to accept the consequences the following day. Wings is hands-down the best local bar with true attitude!!
I live in Columbia, but visit my sons in Charleston frequently. Being of Irish descent, I always make a bee-line for Madra Rua. Their service and food are always excellent. Their food and drink are priced right.
I think Rendezvous is a nice place, but if I had to go eat with 60 people, I would have bailed out. Business Travel Fun has posted a review and gave the Vous a Best of BTF Award. You can check it out at
I went to this place the first week of December and thought it was fine. It definitely is more of a bar that serves seafood pub-grub. They had oyster selections from all over the gulf and east coast. I like cold water oysters way better than carolina or gulf oysters and they were good. The seafood gumbo had great flavor, but for me it was too chunky. I would have liked more of a broth with lots of chunks, this was all chunks. Wings were good, beer ice cold. It was noisy but not overly so. The waitress said they had a noise problem when they first opened but showed me the acoustic stuff they installed in the ceiling. So overall I though it was not a restaurant but a pretty good bar, with good oysters, cold beer, and ok food other than that.
What a joke this place is! Call it an oyster house, pay $10 for a "bucket" and get a small bucket inside of a regular bucket. This is oyster season! If you are an oyster house, you better offer something special, different, less expensive, in larger portions or something other than your competition that is right down the road with beautiful views of Shem Creek.
The service was terrible! One server brought us to our table, continued to ignore us for another 10 minutes while waiting on a talbe right next to us! When our actual server finally came to the table she didn't even know what the specials of the day were. While waiting for our drinks, we watched while yet another server circled the room, waiting on tables and delivering food all while chewing on a piece of gum like a cow would chew its cud (mouth open and all). How disgusting!
We went for oysters but only ordered one beer and left. For all of the hype and excitement of an actual oyster house, this restaurant falls well below par.
Well I work there And I do belive that we do all we can to make everyone happy. With a party of 60 you should have been smart enough to let someone know it would have been all seperate bills.
yeah i work there and all i gotta say is dude give us a break we just opened and are still working a few bugs out be a little open minded and a little more patient thank you
Fred, i bet your group of 60 was a huge pain in the arse and probably didn't tip well.
Fred, Just FYI-Typically when you have 6 or more in a party, most restaurants do not have separate checks, and they add a gratuity. This is a standard practice. With 60 people and no reservations, I doubt that you can expect a great experience anywhere, except a buffet. When you say NEVER AGAIN. I'm sure the restaurant is grateful for that as well.
A nightmare! On Sun. we had lunch after church. There were (60 in our party. They couldnt fit us in one booth and gave us one bill to include $ 20 gratuity. When I objected they split bill, one per table, again I nade them give us each a bill. We were never told we couldn,t have seperate bills. They tried to add $20 gratuity to each bill. The manager, scurrying around with other problems never did get back to us...NEVER AGAIN ...Fred
The hubby & I love the shrimp quesadillas at abe's. Big fat shrimp stuffed into 4 quesadillas the size of pizza slices -- they were excellent.
We also really like the seared tuna tacos -- with the tasty sauce they put on 'em with the pasta side.
And the chopped tomato & onion salsa, guacamole, sour cream and lettuce leaves were all fresh & clean -- which counts for a lot in a place that serves raw.
The only thing that could improve is the coffee and that's small stuff.
In responce to Stu, i am not one of the investors. i am an employee of a competeing restaurant accross the street.
From the comments going up ithink that we do not have much to worry about, unless these people get there thing together.
