Re: “Kickin' Chicken - Summerville

My boyfriend and I went to Kickin Chicken twice in the last month.
They were not very busy we did not see a hostess so we sat ourselves in a booth by the bar. We sat for over 20 minutes and never received service. This happened on both of our visits..the second time we were there I stopped a waitress and asked her if we could get a menu..she stated that was not her section. We left and will never return.

Re: “Tommy Condon's Irish Pub & Seafood Restaurant

"Irish pub & seafood restaurant". How about deciding on one theme and do it properly, please... you are NOTHING-- i repeat, nothing---like a real Irish pub. The food tastes like it's pre-packaged meals that have just been warmed up and slid over onto a plate. In years past, it was a fun place to go, now it's just gotten really sad.

Re: “O'Brion's Pub & Grille

this place is horrible... just horrible.

the staff is rude - strange & detached - kinda like robots. i know this place is out in the woods of 41 - but its a freak show in this place when it comes to staff...

the food is basically right out of the harris teeters frozen food section located next door - prices are high for what this place can offer. bug light bottle @ 3$.

i kinda got the idea its the only place to drink in this area and they have the locals trapped...

when you walk in this place -a big a$$ fake fireplace is staring right at you - it certainly sums this carnival side-show in the woods right up.....just freaky / fake/ and wierd.

Re: “Social

I have eaten there 3x in the last 2 years, and each time my meal had something terribly wrong with it. The first time my ordered dinner was not available, (3 times after ordering...NOT kidding, and there excuse was that it was Sunday, and they were not usually open on Sunday), then it came back burnt, (mini Sliders I think...the bread was burnt, and the burger was wayyyyy overdon, but I am saving the worst part, and that was it had a hair in it. The second time, I am not kidding you, the cheese I ordered had mold on it. I KNOW: Why did I go back a second or even a third time?? The third time my meal came to ok, but it was NOT what I ordered, so I sent it back and 25 minutes later I got what I ordered but it was cooked so differently then I asked for it, and the waiter was really snobby and having a poor day.
I really want to like this place, and I have given it many chances. Additionally, it is crowded with people who are loud and obnoxious.
I am not old, nor a person who EVER sends food back. I LOVE food, I am a foodie, and love going out. But Social, for a local like myself who just wants to go out, have a great bite at a great value, be treated fairly, and not have to navigate a gross meat market where people cannot control themselves, Social is not it for me. Many of my locals friends agree. I think this place used to have a cool, chill crowd. It looks like they are making money, but it is not my kind of peoples. Or food. Or service. Decent wine list, though...
Sorry.

Re: “King Street Grille

Just visited the new location in West Ashley and don't think we'll return until they get their stuff together. The place was not crowded and the server was pleasant, but it took over 45 minutes for the food to get to the table. The food was good, but the wait was ridiculous.

Re: “Montreux Bar and Grill

I live in summerville and have all my life, once upon a time after Mgwack was closed down and you guys opened it was great, great bands, good food, and the staff was awesome.... now you go in and it is a bunch of trouble makers and underage kids playing grown up. the cops are all over the place waiting for you to leave to give you a ticket. there is ALWAYS over drunk creepers to and when you complain nothing is done b/c the drunks are the regs and "friends" with the staff.. it has become a high school atmosphere (not like its not obvious from the post)lame!, if your in the cool club you get special treatment. I have witnessed many people get thrown out for pathetic reasoning.. wake up.. you suck now.. get it together.. and your staffs attitudes need adjusting.. no one asked you all to work at a bar but if you are going to make a career out of it act like you give a crap.. in this place the customer is def not right.. well unless the staff likes you... if your looking for a good place that has an actual history with Summerville check out the pub across the street.. that is a great place and they do not tolerate the drunkees.. or the underage drinkers..

Re: “Sesame Burgers & Beer

A recent visit to the Mall location was a disaster: except for the onion rings. I was quickly seated by a harried mgr. Very soon a young woman handed me a menu and took my drink order. The drink was in front of me in short order. Then the wait began. The young lady never stopped serving other tables, taking orders and working up a low grade sweat. She passed by my table SEVERAL times after I had put the menu down. After approx 15 minutes I spotted her behing the service station sorting flatware. I walked over and asked if I could possibly place an order. She advised she was not my waitperson and had told another young lady about me. She did however take my order for a med rare american cheeseburger with raw onion. The real disaster was the cheeseburger. Why the hell do they season the meat with coriander and some other spice that left a metallic taste in the mouth. After two bites I asked for the check, paid and left. Never to return.

Re: “Hominy Grill

Tons of crab shell in the she-crab soup...I expect a little shell now and then in the average bowl of she-crab, but this was like eating a bowl of bones covered in a creamy liquid. I'm lucky I didn't break my teeth. Also, the waitress was crazy slow. I had to get up out of my chair like four times to get the check and then again to get my credit card back. Will not return.

Re: “Music Farm

I think I will be staying away from shows at the Farm for a while....the last 3 shows (within last 2 months) I have been to have been great artists, but the venue really put a damper on the show. These artists have sound crews that know what they are doing in regards to setting up a sound system, but yet, the accoustics are so bad at the Farm, the music completely drowns the singers out most of the show.... Also, I realize it IS summer in Charleston (read: hot and muggy), but how about installing some XL/industrial fans to help keep air circulating on the floor area or revamping/updating the AC system so everyone isnt standing in a puddle of their own sweat? It also seems like they push the maximum person capacity too...I could barely squeeze my way to the bathroom from the floor, and even back by the bar area was super tight to pass through...maybe we could take a page from the HOB design?

Re: “Monza

Not that impressed and very rude. When I ordered the "build your own pizza" and asked that the pepperoni be left off half the pizza (for my kids) i was told they would not do that, they are very strict. I said I would pay for the topping just dont put it on the whole pizza. They managed to do that some how(you get 6 slices, one large pepperoni on each slice, do the math) My pesto pizza w/the local shrimp again skimpy on the not so fresh shrimp. My husbands Ceasar very underdressed to the point neither of us was sure it had dressing at all. No problem they were happy to bring out extra dressing and actually charge us for it. We were never told the specials and felt that anything we asked for was an inconvience to them. The dough is thin and tasted great in the wood fired oven. The pizza toppings are run of the mill, nothing really creative and certainly not worth the attitude. Who do the think they are Danial Bould in New York? I'll take any snobby overpriced New York restaurant with good food, or the very laid back Mellow Mushroom Pizza over this place any day.

Re: “Triangle Char and Bar

I cannot understand the glowing reviews of this place - GIVE ME A BREAK!

Not only is the food mediocre at best, and the service completely lame, but the place is located in an old gas station - yuck!

Re: “Montreux Bar and Grill

To the person who said the bartender put things on thier tab you are not the only one i had it happen to me and some of our friends have had it happen to them. I wonder if the bartenders are doing it and then spliting the money at the end of the night?? Something needs to be done. Me and my friends all said we would never go there again and i hope no one else does if they are going to run a business like that.

Re: “Loggerhead's Beach Grill

From a Folly Local: the service here is terrible. The bartenders can barely serve you even when the bar is empty.

Good luck in the winter with the local crowd to support you!
The Roadhouse was much better!

Re: “The Dive

Security are d**ks!!! They have no idea what a rock concert is. DON'T go here for a rock show if you want to have cause they will kick you out. The Dive is exactly that a dive. Maybe if they lighten up it'd be worth it but not with the people they have working it now. Don't go here

Re: “Triangle Char and Bar

Rude.

The bartender's reaction when I simply asked if I could order some food made it perfectly clear I was being a horrible inconvenience to her.

Didn't stay for food. I don't need that crap.
