Beer.....good. Lots of beer.....better.
I like the biergarten's relaxed atmosphere. If the inside gets too crowded or loud my friends and I usually go outside to play a round or two of corn hole with liters of beer in hand. The food is pretty good and I like the selection of beer they have. I have to say out of all the bars in Charleston biergarten probably has the best outside section since they have plenty of space to hang out.
Went here on Sat. for some beers and listen to some music .Not sure where this band came from (The Cubes), but all I can say is "Wow" !!! Rock music the way it should be played. Very tight band with a 60's flair, hope they play here at Tracey's again, cause I come here often and live close.
Was really looking forward to this place for so long. I've been for lunch and an early afternoon beer, and it is tolerable then. The lunch food I thought was great and pretty affordable. Service at night, though, is pretty terrible (especially if you're a dude). Good luck getting a drink at the bar...and paying a little too much for it. I would just ignore the beer card thing if its not for you...
Ate lunch at Lee Lee's Hot Kitchen. I had the veggie fried rice and an order of spicy dumplings. Both were excellent. The fried rice was full of fresh vegetables and the dumplings were cooked to perfection floating in a nice sauce. They could use more spicy condiments. I'll definitely be back.
Coastal Crust did an amazing event at our house for the holidays! Their food is fantastic and the staff is exceptional. They made this event so easy by handling every last detail. Can't wait to do our next event with them!
or a cheesy bit of self-promotion!
Amazing! Had dinner there Saturday night and all four in our party were blown away! We had the walnut shrimp, black bean chicken, General Tso's chicken, shrimp fried rice, lettuce wraps, and TWO orders of crab Rangoon (we immediately ordered the second one on the first taste!). The manager is really attentive and in total command of the large crowd in the small space. We even waited in our car for our table (as it was too cold to stand on the curb) and he came to get us when our table cleared. Prices are incredibly reasonable. Cannot wait to return (often!)!
FIVE STARS***** Warren Haynes Band! The best show ever put on at the Music Hall. Vibe was spot on with high energy. Sound was wonderful if not perfect. He may have is own sound man. A Great place to see shows. A sound man can make or break a show.
Would like to see other shows at Charleston Music Hall
You can't beat guaranteed fish!
To borrow and paraphrase a comment from a friend: If you want to be a sports bar or a frat bar serving buckets of bud light, that's your prerogative and seems to be the business that is carrying you. But don't call yourself a biergarten just to use a hip term when you truly don't cater to the Charleston beer connoisseurs. That's like Taco Bell calling itself authentic Mexican cuisine.
if you are a mindless zombie who follows fads while neglecting quality, you might like this place. if you have even a whisker of taste, you won't waste your time. the food is terrible, the beer is overpriced, there is NOTHING german about it. the only thing they have going is the fact that it is new. it is located next to the projects so don't get jumped while you walk back to your car since there isn't adequate parking. actually, you might be better getting a colt .45 and hanging out on the corner. at least you won't wast too much money. i'd give them some credit for the decor, but it looked the same before the joint was purchased by the current owners. basically it will be one of those places where anyone local will stop going to within a month, and anyone still caught there will be made fun of. look at any of the reviews of this place, google, tripadvisor, etc. they all say the same thing.
P.S. i thought the point of going to a bar was having someone else pour your drinks
I agree with Mr Silver, this venue has sounded awesome for any show I've attended until this past October REK show. It was terrible. It was all bass and no vocals and we were in a primo front center balcony spot. I'm going to another show soon and hope the sound's not that bad.
Great location, not a bad seat in the house
But The Sound Board Is The Worst I've Heard Maybe He Just Doesn't Like Bluegrass Or Folk. The sound man can make or break a venue
I CAN'T GO BACK TO THE TORTURE
if you're rich this place is okay. if you're not rich, go to The Craftsman. or Gene's. or The Griffon. or anywhere else, really.
Had great beers but spent $40 bucks on 4 beers...and I poured my own beers... don't volunteer to buy a round at this place...
One of the best Nurseries and garden centers in the area for all needs in regards to gardening and plant care.
Our slider appetizers were very good. Our entrees were slightly overpriced and hugely underseasoned. The wait service was annoyingly mediocre. We're not food snobs, but geez, this place has ZERO personality.
Hard to rate, here's why: First time we stopped in on a quiet day, the service was a little slow but food was fine, so we decided to revisit on a Friday night. The place was full, but we were seated quickly. We waited for about 5-7 minutes, then the waitress came over to take our drink order (clue #1). When she returned with just 2 waters she said "Ill be honest, I forgot what drinks you ordered" (clue #2). When she came back with our drinks, she took our order--and repeated it as we ordered it. As i watched the tables that she was assigned to it was clear she was totally 'in the weeds' but the host kept seating her section (4 additional tables while we waited for our food to arrive- clue #3). Our food arrived, but half of my date's order was wrong. She said she would go fix it and be right back. We began to eat, but sadly discovered both of our orders were cold. Cooks don't put up cold food to go to a table, it gets cold when wait staff let it sit in the window too long. The food was good, but would have been super had it been served hot. The 'wrong' part of my date's food never got fixed. Nichole (waitress) kept coming by & filling water/tea & saying, "Oh yeah, let me get the other part of your order" but it just never happened. When she came to drop off our check, she said "oh gosh, i never brought the other part of your meal! Do you want it to go?" When we said No, she went on to say "you can take it home & eat it". Um, again, No thanks, we wanted to eat it here, not home. She didnt even remove the unreceived food item off of the check. *** Owners please take note: good food can only keep a place afloat so long, when the service is bad, people won't return! It would be a shame to go out of business because of your servers' poor service.
We came into to Sweeney's restaurant tonight for the first time and had the BEST service and the food was AMAZING! All four people in our party cleaned our plates completely with no left overs (which is never the case). The atmosphere was very cozy, CLEAN, and friendly. I already plan on going back later this week!
