Re: “Bay Street Biergarten

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.

Re: “Blossom

Restaurant Week has won again! We went to Blossom Sunday night for the special menu and, in addition, tried the gnocchi. The food was delicious and our service was excellent. Thanks Rick, and Blossom for a wonderful dining experience!

Re: “Jestine's Kitchen

In Dec. I was in S. C. and by accident I found "JESTINE"s. There was a parking space on the side of the restaurant but the sign said, "no parking 2 - 7 p m". It was after 7 so I parked there. I asked inside if they thought it was O K if I parked there. The Manager said, "Will, you may or may not get a ticked". So I went to move my car and the Manager came out with me. He asked if I saw the white truck parked down the street, I said, "yes", he told me to take that spot as soon as the truck moved. I asked how he knew it was going to move. He said, "I have the keys in my hand". What a graceious thing to do if we all could just be nicer to others it would be a better world. Now that's Southern Hospitality and he is a real Southern Gentleman. Thank you for that unusual experience. Jestine's is a fun place to be and the food is good also. Thank you!

Re: “Bay Street Biergarten

Bay Street Biergarten Review

If you're looking for a great selection of craft beers (mostly offered directly at the bar) or just want a large venue for socializing with a group of friends, this is a great spot. The table taps can be a little difficult to get to when crowded, but still a nice addition that bings a different style of service Charleston has been missing out on. With regards to food, there is pretty decent menu, but quite honestly most people go here for the beer selection, so its generally what you expect (the giant bowl of tattertots with cheese and gravy still always fun at any age). The staff has been friendly and accommodating as well.

The only issue I see is with parking around the area can be a llittle bit sketchy, since the lot always get full. However there is a giant lot that is open on the port terminal road that runs parallel to E. Bay.

Re: “The Green Goat

Excellent food and service! Try the pork chop and the meatloaf. Their collards are blow your mind delicious. Down right wonderful locally sourced home cooked goodness.

Re: “Mozzo

I've been there for breakfast just about monthly since they opened, and I love, love, love their bagel sandwiches and breakfast burritos. The portions are large, and they don't skimp on the more expensive parts of the recipe (lox, et cetera).

My only knock on them is that the ordering/service flow isn't logical and sometimes that means a while before your order is taken. But it is never really a "problem."

Overall: big fan.

Re: “DeSano Pizza Bakery

I shared a couple of pizzas with two friends recently and they were intersting artisan pizzas and the setting at the big tables was nice. I will go again - price was on higher side but all and all I found it to be a good experience.

Re: “Jestine's Kitchen

This restaurant closed temporarily and has now re-opened. My wife & I went there many times before it closed and always enjoyed it. We have not been back since re-opening so can't comment on how it is now.

Re: “DeSano Pizza Bakery

The layout is indeed confusing, there needs to be a giant "ORDER HERE" sign when you first walk in. But the service was GREAT, from the front of house to back of house. Pizza was really, really great too - and I personally prefer a really thin crust but this regular crust was excellent. I had the Verdura, if you're a veggie lover this will be right up your alley. Great for large groups and kids.

Re: “Pick Thai

I have had a lot of Thai food. Since Jasmine closed on Folly Road and driving to Basil is such a pain, we decided to give this place a try for lunch. We ordered Thai Tea (the bomb) an order of Basil Shrimp Spring Rolls (fresh and delicious), Phad Thai (much better than the Mustard Seed (theirs is gross!) and Massaman Curry (oh yeah!). It was all very, very good. Portions were just right, the spice was good. We will definitely be back. This is a great place to grab lunch or dinner or even take out. The decor is not much to write home about, but it's very convenient since it's on James Island!! We are lacking good food choices on the island. Thank you Pick Thai !

Re: “Southern General

Both of the shrimp sandwiches here are fantastic, and they make some really fun condiments (sweet potato-garlic kimchi, sweet onion-mustard relish, etc.). I also like their green beans and their macaroni salad with pineapple and green chilies. I haven't been as impressed with their fries or chips so far (too soggy one time, too dry another), but I imagine they'll work out those kinks, soon, if they haven't already. This place is a great option on Johns Island.

Re: “82 Queen

My bf and I dined at 82 Queen last night. We had never been and decided that Restaurant Week was the perfect opportunity to try this restaurant. We had drinks at the bar before our table time, the bar is almost publike and pleasant. We had dinner in the "Queen's Garden" which was romantic, comfortable, and like an enchanted nook that was completely unexpected. The food was stellar. The Roasted Pepper and Corn Bisque was creamy and full of flavor, the Burrata was creamy, the orange tomatoes firm and sweet/tart, and the wine reduction was different and delicious (and I am so glad it was not another balsamic reduction). The short rib was mammoth-sized, but succulent and it shredded at the instant the fork touched it, the cheerwine bbq sauce was delightful and the wreckfish was meaty, juicy and satisfying. The biggest surprise came from the bacon caramel sauce that was served with the creamiest, most chocolately cheesecake I have ever tasted. Our server Mark was friendly and attentive and we had a wonderful time as well as a delicious meal.

Re: “Tattooed Moose, JI

This one of the better joints in town. They have a handful of very well prepared and creative gourmet sandwiches. Duck fat fries are pretty hit and miss, unfortunately, but I don't mind rolling the dice on them. Good beer selection as well.

Re: “D'Allesandro's Pizza

Excellent light crust, interesting beer choices, delicious panini. No wings. Very nice people, community minded supporting Habitat for Humanity, local sport teams and neighborhood school programs.

Re: “La Tela Pizzeria

We've dined at this restaurant several times and the food is excellent. The homemade fried mozzarella (made on-site) is to die for! We continue to patronize the restaurant because the food and wait service have always been wonderful but watch out for the female owner that man's the hostess desk - she's beyond rude and is socially retarded. We gave her our name and number for the table and then proceeded to the bar for drinks. After a 30 minute wait, I checked back in and was told our table was given away because she "couldn't find us"....what?????? We told her we would be in the bar - not 30 feet away! When I told her we were less than 30 feet away and she never called us, her response was, "whatever"...REALLY???? This is not our first disappointing experience with her...she may be an owner but she's the last person you want greeting/servicing customers. If you go to this restaurant be prepared to be disappointed with this aspect!

Re: “Hank's Seafood Restaurant

Good food and service. Apparently we have gone to the wrong restaurants before now because we found Charleston to be lacking good restaurants ....way too much fried food but Hanks delivered. Thanks!!!

Re: “Crust

I've been twice and think it's a nice little neighborhood place. The crust on our pizzas was crackly and black in a few places, which I liked. The Del Re was salty goodness, and my toddler loved his cheese and fried egg pizza. I wasn't as excited about their take on sausage and mushroom, but it still was perfectly fine. I wouldn't visit Crust for a special occasion, necessarily, but I'm glad to have another solid option for a weekday lunch or dinner.
