Re: “Halls Chophouse

The tourists flock to this place, while the locals laugh! Forget about the Charleston version of the Adams family that runs the place, the weirdest, most eccentric people you will ever meet, but the drinks are way overpriced, like double other places, and the steaks are mail order Allen Bros. steaks marketed as some amazing cuts of beef. Tourists are so dumb they think the Halls family i.e. Adams family are Charleston natives, little do they know they came here in 2009 after one failed business attempt in the hospitality industry after another in multiple US cities. Sadly, the jokes on us, the people of Charleston.

Re: “Halls Chophouse

12$ liquor drinks you get for $5 dollars everywhere else and average mail order Allen Bros. steaks, yet the tourists flock to this place. All the locals do is laugh. The family has a well deserved reputation as the most freaky, eccentric family in Charleston, which is why the locals stay away.

Re: “Mondo's

They have a great pasta menu. The service is very well. This together makes a great dining experience.
The wine list is average and the the bar tending is weak. Their cocktails are always light for the money. The bar tender is more involved in the wine list than the cocktails or whatever.

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: “Page's Okra Grill

One of the best sandwiches I've ever had. Charleston or elsewhere.

The PBT is amazing. It's got pimiento cheese, fried green tomatoes, apple-wood smoked bacon on Texas toast. Delicious.

I agree with the other reviews that it can be busy at times, I usually avoid the crowds and go a little later at night once the dinner rush is over. It means eating later, but also better service and shorter waits. Highly recommend.

Also, the BBQ cheese fries are great to snack on!

Re: “DB's Cheesesteaks, Burgers, & Fries

Re: “Zombie Bob's

Huge slices, crisp, flavorful crust, delicious sauce, and overflowing with molten cheese. Pair with the most artfully crafted beer in Charleston and you're winning all day.

Re: “Halls Chophouse

Some people, especially Charleston locals, do not care to be constantly bothered by self-promoting, in-your-face boors when trying to enjoy a quiet dinner of only-average steak.

Re: “Halls Chophouse

If you cant get a table, eat at the bar. The bartenders are amazing and will keep you entertained and they'll offer amazing insight on the menu. Food is amazing! Family style apps are fantastic! A+

Re: “Hyman's Seafood

We are from Michigan and whenever our travels take us to Charleston, Hyman's is a regular stop. The food and service have always been great. Looking forward to our next visit.

Re: “Smoke BBQ

Best wings, best brisket, friendly staff, beware the "Liquid Marijuana!" Everything was going pretty good until I greedily drank 3 after being told only 2...

Re: “Magnolias

Went for lunch and LOVED the crab cake entree! Just a great balance between the risotto and collards. Would definitely return just for that! Our server was very friendly and helpful too!

Re: “Magnolias

Of course the service and ambiance were great, but I chose Magnolia's to take my girlfriend to for her birthday. Unfortunately, like others, my meal was not what I've had in the past. The meal was quite bland and forgettable. Unfortunately, since I am a local teacher, I have to make my trips downtown carefully as I have been priced out of most establishments. Her comment was we should have gone to Waffle House instead since we always know what we'll be getting will taste as expected and will cost 1/5 of the price. Said a lot to a born and bred North Charlestonian.

Re: “Magnolias

Disappointing meal. Trout was bland with little flavor and sides were ordinary. Have eaten here many times over frequent visits to Charleston but probably will not be back.

Re: “Angel Oak Restaurant

Delicious chicken & biscuts. Best fried pickles I've found in Chs...a little out of the way, worth the trip.

Re: “Riso Noodle House

Love the noodle house. Great people, service, prices and food. They have a very nice variety of asian dishes and lots of great fresh flavors. I love going there.

Re: “TBonz Gill & Grill

Management has it together. Greats you at the door, checks on you, listens. Really a great experience here. I was so surprised to see the level of attention the management and servers have here. Food was very good and good prices. Highly recommend.
