Re: “Hominy Grill

Okay, I visited from Toronto, Canada and I have to say I was a bit disappointed. My family and I ordered brunch. It was very busy but the wait wasn't too bad. My sister ordered the pork chop special and it was rather dry and the sauce was nothing special, I had the eggs with grits, double smoked bacon and ordered a side of sausage. The double smoked bacon was good but only two slices, I expected maybe one more; the real disappointment was the sausage, tiny and horribly dry!! The real praise is for their desserts, my mother ordered the butter milk pie and I had the chocolate pudding. OMG, this could have been the best dessert I have ever tasted, the pudding was so rich and smooth!! I had a few bites of the buttermilk pie and I was impressed although I had nothing to compare it to. Next time I am in Charleston, I think I will just order dessert;)

Re: “Crescent Connection Bistro

The food was very bland. Do not bother to try this place.

Re: “Hucks Lowcountry Table

Just had to reply to the guy from Maryland. Hate to tell those Chesapeakers that they ran out of crabs years ago up ther and now they buy their crabs from down here.

Re: “Crescent Connection Bistro

My husband and i ate there last night and it was the best meal we have had in a long time. Fried green tomatoes, grits cakes, and a seafood platter for 2. The food was amazing, the service was great, and they even had Happy Hour specials!
Love it!
Will be back soon!

Re: “Hucks Lowcountry Table

I have to completely disagree with the last review. I've eaten at Huck's at least a half dozen times since they've opened and never had a bad meal. I'm originally from the northeast, have had the Maryland crab and find Huck's just as good. However, there is plenty of other great choices on the menu and I recommend the awesome fish tacos. As for waiting for a table; it is a small restaurant and reservations are definitely in order. I can understand waiting 45 minutes if you just show up and expect to be seated. Back to the food; the food has always been perfectly cooked and spiced and the wait staff and management come by and check on you all the time to make sure all is well. I highly recommend Hucks.

and no...I dont work there and I'm not related to anyone who does :)

Re: “Hucks Lowcountry Table

After waiting 45 minutes for a table we were eager to sample the food. We tried the fried oysters which are the best thing on the menu....the shrimp hushpuppies were a bland disappointment. Skip the crabcake and fried green tomato was terrible. My son and I had the CRAB STUFFED FLOUNDER, roasted john's island beet pilaf, old bay creme fraiche...all 6 at the table agreed it was just husband had the duck which was dreary, undercooked (blood red) and underseasoned...During our 1 week stay we ate our way through Charleston and had some fantastic meals, but Hucks was the single worst dinner I've had in disappointing! If you are from Maryland (as we are)do yourshelf a favor and skip anything with crabmeat. I'd skip this restaurant!

Re: “High Cotton

Went this weekend as the In-Laws were in town. We wanted to take them somewhere nice for their last night. We always love High Cotton and again were not dissapointed.
My fish was excellent, perfect size. Husband had duck-delish!
Our waitress didn't pour our wine, it's a pet peeve of mine, but other than that service was fantastic.
Nice and busy on a Sunday which I love. When you can't get a reservation until 8.30pm on a Sunday evening it definately means I am not the only one raving about this place.

Re: “Crescent Connection Bistro

The food here is fantastic and plentiful and the service is attentive and friendly. The corn macheux was creamy and delicious and the corn bread was also very good and all-you-can-eat. I cannot say enough about how great this restaurant is-you must try it!

Re: “Crescent Connection Bistro

I ate the Chicken Creole on a recent visit and loved the red gravy and tender chicken. The flavors are uniquely NOLA. Nice rich flavor. Excellent gumbo, too. Go soon.

Re: “Slightly North of Broad

Hmmm, putting no stars had no effect on the 5 stars this restaurant is getting. Hopefully putting one star will drop their rating to where it belongs!

Re: “Slightly North of Broad

Am I missing something with SNOB? There are a few items on the menu that are great, but quite a lot that are over salted and bland. Also, why would you NEVER change the menu? Few specials a night don't count as a menu change. Summer and winter do not need the same items on the menu. Is the chef losing his steam? Can't be bothered? Knows how to cook a few things and sticks with it?

Re: “Carolina's

We love it here! My group of Ladies frequent this lovely, classy little place. And we LOVE RYAN!! He's the best. Highly recommended for the bar and the atmosphere for a selective palette. Cant wait to go back again soon! Love you guys.

Re: “Center Street Kitchen

I have eaten here 3 or 4 times since opening, and its been great each time. I live on folly, but wear a tie to work downtown, so I think this place would appeal to everyone. Im glad it opened, because of the pork appetizer alone. Its fantastic! Also not to be missed is the fried turkey, it's excellent! Keep it up CSK, I enjoy good food and service no matter if its lunch, dinner, weekday, or weekend. Reasonably priced great food is a home run in my book.

Re: “Center Street Kitchen

I'm impressed John! Way to acknowledge the bad experience mentioned below and attempt to rectify the situation.

I probably wouldn't have tried you guys because of the several bad establishments that have occupied that space (that and my disdain for the "new" folly beach and their overbearing public safety officers). But, I'm sure that I'll find myself at folly again in the upcoming weeks and will definately stop in and enjoy something fried.

Re: “Center Street Kitchen

wonderfully simple, fast especially for a folly beach eatery. only suggestion is that some of the vegetable sides could be made without the pork and be equally or more delicious and have a wider following

Re: “Hominy Grill

Best shrimp and grits in town. Whenever I have company visiting me, I always take them to Hominy for brunch. It is always well worth the wait and delicious.

Re: “Hominy Grill

DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE!! Over priced, over rated and if you like crappy service with an attitude... this is the place for you.

Re: “Hominy Grill

I loved this restaurant. We sat outside and ate breakfast. The food was wonderful...especially the pumpkin and banana bread! The customer service was excellent. We will definitely be going back!
