Re: “Crave Kitchen & Cocktails

My new go-to brunch place in Charleston. Shrimp with grits and chorizo sausage is great. The bacon Bloody Mary will not disappoint. Great casual outdoor seating.

Re: “Chico Feo

It's like you're chilling in your own backyard with a personal chef/bartender. Food is awesome and friendly folks around.

Re: “The Mustard Seed

I was in the Mt Pleasant restaurant... place smelled like dirty mop water, my arms stuck to the table. Got up and left- pronto!

Re: “The Mustard Seed

I totally understand scmama's comment(Bless her little heart!). Sweetie, if you're used to going to Huddle House, you probably won't like this food, and you should probably stay as far away from Shem Creek and Downtown as possible.

Re: “The Mustard Seed

Try the sesame chicken salad with honey mustard dressing. Its fantastic. Anyone comparing the seed to huddle has has zero credibility. If something isn't right at the seed you send it back and they fix it. Their motto is "we kiss your ass". Fantastic food and great people. If you don't speak up you can blame yourself.

Re: “The Mustard Seed

So disappointed in our meal tonight. Veggies way over salted. Fish over cooked. Crab cakes mostly filler, very little crab. Have had better meals at Huddle House. Easily worst restaurant east of Pacific. Hipster waiter only told us about specials he liked, said others "weren't good." Avoid Mt. Pleasant location.

Re: “The Mustard Seed

such an awesome menu and variety of flavors. Best menu in Charleston by far.Killer Pad Thai, great seafood, salads and lettuce wraps are so good.

Re: “Crave Kitchen & Cocktails

My go to brunch location! There are a number of great options for brunch, great sides, great drinks. Always dependable. The service some times isn't fantastic, which is the only thing that keeps me from giving 5-stars. I would always recommend Crave, especially for brunch.

Re: “Cork Neighborhood Bistro

Food was good, but not anything super special. Reasonbly priced for what is offered. Excellent wine options. Staff very knowledgeable about wine menu.

Re: “Red Drum

I love Sunday Brunch. It is my favorite meal. I literally look forward to it every week. I have tried tons of brunch places in town. For the longest time Moe's was my hands down favorite (RIP). Triangle was my favorite party brunch place (the food...meh) and had great service.

Red Drum...surpasses them all. The food is fantastic and includes all the choices you would want from traditional to southern to unique (for Charleston). The bartender is always on top of your drink, and they have the most generous mimosas around. I also really like that the guys get their in a pint glass so they can still feel manly.
Get the fork and knife tacos...mmmmm.

If you haven't tried it for brunch - you are missing out.

Re: “Eurasia Café and Wine Bar

Wine bar, not. I am a little tired of hearing anyone with a wine list (which Eurasia actually has a decent one) call themselves a wine bar. Social is the only one close to wine bar in this area. Simply: a wine bar needs to offer a large variety of wines by the glass, it needs to do set flights and free form flights (ability to offer a half glass). It should have a preservation system unless the wine is marked and flies out.

That all being said, the bottle list here is good and a value to boot.

Food on the other hand was not stellar.

Fried Oysters: supposed to be served with Buere Blanc, couldn't discern, just ok

Caesar Salad: way underdressed, but the croutons were good bit heavy for the salad though

Off the Hook Rockafeller: two fried oysters on a filet (catch of the day) over mashed potatoes and spinach with fontina cream. pretty mundane, potatoes would be what you make for a big family dinner very nuetral, not enough of the fontina cream to taste past a bite or two, fish was fairly flavorless.

Fine Swine: sort of a cured tenderloin with pork fried rice taste, ginger overpowered everything here, very unbalanced.

Cheesecake was frozen in the middle and debonded from the crust, not sure how old it might be,

Overall, I would go back and try an appetizer again, not a meal to give a second chance and more so to sample another bottle.

Place definitely needs work.

Re: “Eurasia Café and Wine Bar

@C17Mark No, I am not in Food & Bev. I could assume that since these are your only posts, that you work there... however I won't, since you know what that would make me.

PS- I wasn't aware that Eurasia had rival restaurants. Is there a secret society of cranky Mt. Pleasant F&Bers that plots dastardly deeds? Cause if so, I want to hear more.

Re: “Eurasia Café and Wine Bar

Always an amazing meal and excellent service!!! One of my favorites...

Re: “Eurasia Café and Wine Bar

Whoever gave this place a poor review must obviously work at a rival restaurant nearby. I have been here 4 times and have had nothing short of an excellent meal and service... I highly recommend this place... Always a fantastic experience! Nuff said!

Re: “Eurasia Café and Wine Bar

Salt, salt and more salt. And the few non-salty items were amazingly bland. Disappointing, since we loved the interior and had a great server.

Re: “Rice Market

Rice Market is a hidden gem and has not gotten enough attention. Sure, it had to work through it's share of rough spots, as do many restaurants starting out, but changes seem to have been made and you owe it to yourself to try it! Such a beautiful spot...(BTW Arizona's hasn't been around for about 20 YEARS! but, I liked it too...). This is NOT REALLY ALL ABOUT RICE....It's about cultures inspired or based on rice. Don't expect a big old mound of rice...In fact, don't even look for it because you won't find it here. What you will find is really great food---fish, scallops, BEEF, vegetables etc. prepared and served in truly different and exciting ways! Beautiful bar, sexy booth seating and great air conditioning and COOL drinks at the bar!

Re: “Eurasia Café and Wine Bar

Susieg. . . Looks like you are still having fun with your food blog.
I am a regular at Eurasia. Did you send your brown salad back? Had you done so, I am sure the kitchen would have happily remedied the problem. They would have been alarmed, I am sure. But, then again, you would not have had the opportunity to smear your exclusive 'brown salad' pics over the web. I have read all of your entries for your food blog and it is just very amateur. You seem to thrive on finding mistakes at restaurants. Want perfection? Look for it in your own kitchen, on your own table. When you realize it is not there you might be able to dine out with a more objective attitude.
