Re: “Hyman's Seafood

Agreed... When I lived in Charleston, pre-Hugo-we steered clear... Then the day after Hugo, when we were trying to figure out if there were any survivors (there were), this place was still in business cleaning out their refrigerators on Meeting Street (for a price) Can't figure out why.

Re: “Hyman's Seafood

Overrated and despicable tourist trap that deserves to have it's kitchen staff commit suicide. In no way compares to the superior establishments in New England or Baltimore. Reliance on locally caught stock results in an effrontery of the palette seldom experienced in polite dining company. A wretched, horrid cacophony of culinary offenses that defy description.

Re: “Hyman's Seafood

Quite possibly the worst Charleston seafood scam since Hugo hit - perhaps even well before that. Avoid like the plague...

Re: “Hyman's Seafood

Tourist TRAP. You could wait in line for crappy food all day long & it will still be crappy food when you get it.

Re: “Hyman's Seafood

Marginal food, stuffed-in seating. There are alot of better places in Charleston

Re: “Acme Lowcountry Kitchen

Used to be a regular there, but have been in more recently and the service and quality of food was disappointing. Hate that - it used to be one of my favorite places...

Re: “Fleet Landing

I have been to this place on numerous occasions (both for lunch & dinner) and I have had always a great expeience. The food has been great and the servers pleasant, even when the place was hoppin'! The chilled grilled flank steak salad, at $13, is worth every penny!!

Re: “Coast

Chef's fish of the day is typically served whole and prepared to your preference. Whatever the fish, I ask that it be filleted and pan seared in butter. Add a squeeze of lemon and you will always have a superb meal.

Re: “Water's Edge

I agree. The food is over priced and it's not that great. Most of the patrons are older or families with young children.

It is advertised as fine dining but the servers wear button down shirts with rolled up cuffs and navy blue trousers (khaki pants material) with dirty beat-up sneakers. It is so unsightly and it looks so unprofessional. The servers should at least wear ties and dress shoes. Who wants to be served by someone with a messy appearance.

Also, the bar and the smoking section is right next to the non-smoking section. It totally defeats the whole purpose to having separate sections. Also, the host staff are young girls who don't seem to know what they are doing. Additionally, there is a second dining room that faces the parking lot--patrons have to walk past the restrooms and the kitchen to get to that dining room. Waters Edge calls that room the Lorelei Room and it smells like smoke even though it is supposed to be a non smoking dining room.

And the RATS! They run around outside by the patio and around the cabana bar. DO NOT EAT HERE!

Waters Edge Management should really get it together.

Re: “RB's Seafood

I ate at RB's at someone else's insistence and was unsurprised at how little I enjoyed it. The bar was nice, but beyond that I didn't eat anything that made me ever want to go back. It was so forgettable that the only thing I remember is: don't bother going back.

Clearly the owner spends far too much time worrying about parking enforcement and too little time on the kitchen. Overpriced, under-tasty, and actually somehow the views aren't even that great. Doesn't the same person/group own Red's and RB's? What's with the crazy parking situation.

Re: “RB's Seafood

Please don't waste your time at this over priced tourist trap. The only thing, and I mean the only thing this restaurant has going for it is its location. Coast or Hanks downtown offers WAY better seafood at a comparable price. Twisted Fish (Breakroom) for seafood n tapas or Poes for tuna tacos is a good choice also. Pearlz is a fantastic place to go for oysters and other fare too. I would avoid RB's at all costs. It has terrible food, ownership, parking, and prices. It rivals Noisy Oyster as the worst seafood and atmosphere in Charleston/Mt P. It received a star because at least it keeps a few people employed...
Nuff said!

Re: “Water's Edge

Unless you're of the aging set, with extra money to burn, dont go here.
It's boring, it's stuffy, it's outdated, and the food is ridiculous.... $19.00 for grilled chicken with rice? Puh-leez... My salmon had so much cream sauce on it, it was almost unrecognizable!

Re: “Shem Creek Bar and Grill

I must admit the bacon stuffed waffles with a side of bacon drew us in at first & are good and reasonably priced, enough to tempt us out for a second brunch visit. However, on this visit we found the Bloody Mary's weak, the ice water tasted like dishwater, and the fact that they are "trapping" the wild cats that patrol the area really weirds me out. (suprise?! you have animals prowling around a restaurant area where people toss food and trash??? wow, imagine that) We went for brunch & sat outside, only to hear this horrible meowing noise from under the deck being made by a large black cat that had been caught in a trap that the manager later said was "put out for the raccoons".... and altho the manager brought the poor distressed, frenzied & panting cat up from underneath the deck, they didnt release it, apparently b/c they hadnt gotten "the offical word" from whoever set the trap about what to do with whatever the trap caught! Um, just a put a trap out and dont have a plan regarding what to do with the animal you catch?? (At least our waitress brought some water out to it...who knows how long the cat had been in the trap?) As we were leaving, and walked over to see if the cat was okay, some guy comes barreling out of the door and said "Dont let that cat out.....unless youre taking it home with you." Sorry, but I'm letting this cat out of the bag....we wont be back. We will bemaking bacon stuffed waffles at home, but thanks for the idea, though!!!

Re: “Fish

I just went to dinner at Fish for the first time. I wanted to like it, I really did. We ordered the dim sum (under-seasoned), the tuna tartare (ok, but the one at cypress blows this one out of the water), the naked fish (overcooked, surprising since the name of the place is FISH), the pork tenderloin (under-seasoned), and the ice cream sandwiches (I would be embarrassed to serve that at my dinner table!). One word for my experience: underwhelming. If you want good seafood in the upper king district, stick to Coast. For fine dining, stick to SNOB and Cypress.
