Re: “Montreux Bar and Grill

This place is absolutely horrible. This is a definite do not go. I asked for a rum an coke and the bartender actually asked me "what's in it?". The drinks are overpriced as others have mentioned and the food is even worst. I ate the shrimp and was practically out of commission. I wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy. The 'relatively' new owners have run this place into the ground.

Re: “Suede Supper Club

This might be one of the bigger jokes in the Charleston area. Granted, the place has been updated nicely - and the dj is great - BUT, we arent in Vegas fellas. The rude doorman/bouncers with their ear pieces and tough guy attitudes is laughable. Pricey drinks and bartenders who make you feel lucky to get served doesn't last long here. Best was a fight in the parking lot at 2 AM. Mount Pleasant people! Take it to N Chuck!

Re: “Coconut Joe's Beach Grill & Bar

We ate there once a few months back. Ordered the "jerk chicken". I'm a restaurant owner/manager and I hate it when customers get a slightly underdone piece of chicken and refer to it as "raw". I can find no other term to describe this chicken we received at Coconut Joe's other than RAW. It was literally cooked about 1/8" on either side. Like on the grill for 30-45 seconds, flip, 30-45 seconds on the other side. The entire center (75% of the chicken breast) was jelly raw.

The reaction of the restaurant was like it didn't matter a whole lot.

The manager offered us dessert.

Re: “Diamonds North

If Diamonds North is so great, how come it's always dead on the weekends when I drive by there? And how come y'all are having live bands perform now on some nights instead of the skank dancers?

Re: “King Street Grille

I have never writen a review on establishment before, but I feel I have to after this past Sunday. So you call yourself a sports bar and your not prepared for a NATIONAL sporting event like the Woman's World Cup!!!!! I could not understand why you would not have enough wait staff on hand for an event such as this so that my friends and I, that are sitting at a table, did not have to order two beers at a time or even go to the bar and order a drink due to your wait staff being slow and under staffed. What's sad is that a few of my friends that I was sitting with kept stating that this is "typical JI King Street Grille" Also folks in my party had to litterally leave the table and look for our server to get our check once the game was over. Truly have some major concerns for this King Street Grill and its patrons come this upcoming football season. TV's great, food good, beer good if its not the second of the two you had to order at the same time thats a little warm now, and service well...... SUCKS!!!!!

Re: “O'Brion's Pub & Grille

Would be nice if they paid better attention to their food. The jumbo wings had to be a joke as they were the smallest and driest we had ever had. Beer is on the pricey side and the staff seems to have no passion for the job or the guests.

Re: “Triangle Char and Bar

I've been a couple times now, hoping that the experience would improve, but it hasn't at all. The hostesses are impolite, the service is spotty (but at least the wait staff is friendly), but my main issue is the food. Every time I've visited I have requested a burger as rare as they will cook it, yet every time it comes out like charcoal. The fries and onion rings are decent, but could be way better. It's a great atmosphere to stop and have a drink, just don't eat the food.

Re: “Wild Wing - Mt. Pleasant

NOT SMOKE FREE!
Another Mount P bar that has an open roll up door between the "outside" smoking area and the supposed inside non-smoking area.
Bad enough that they have slowly but surely been enclosing the outside area, but the addicts stand in that roll up door and blow their poison in at you.
If you wish to avoid second hand smoke, avoid Wild Wing Mount P.
I know I will.

Re: “Bucca's Bar & Grill

On Wednesday 25 May I took my co-worker to lunch at Buccas. We ordered the special (Fried Chicken, Potato Salad and Baked Beans). There was only one other couple in the establishment. My co-worker's chicken came out black like coal which she told the waitress. The waitress brought another piece of chicken and said that the cook (Brian) had said that if she didn't like that one she would have to pay for both orders weather she ate it or not. At this point I got mad and asked for the owner since we have been regular customers since the place opened. Nobody was in charge, there was just the bar tender, a waitress, and Brian the cook who never came out. This totally ruined our lunch and my co-worker's birthday lunch. Will not return and plan on announcing in our SPAWAR Blog to avoid this place, unbelievable rude and unprofessional attitude.

Re: “Grindz Burgers & Brew

crap hole. Period. Avoid at all costs. Crap food, horrible service. Everyone involved should be banned from setting foot in this State

Re: “Grindz Burgers & Brew

Attempted to dine at Grindz on a Saturday evening. Got to the door and was told there would be a $5 charge per person to get in. Seriously? A cover charge?

We wanted a burger and had planned on spending the requisite $10...but to be charged $5 so I could order a $10 meal seemed a bit obscene. You should be happy that I'm willing to pay $10 for a hamburger...not charge me 50% more than that just to give me the opportunity. What a joke.

Fortunately we did not have to suffer through the bad service as talked about in the multitude of reviews.

(We went down the street to Sesame and had a nice meal)

Re: “Laura Alberts Tasteful Options

I thought the food was overpriced for not being anything fancy. In addition, I asked the server to leave something off my plate, but she put it on there anyway and then had the nerve to get into an argument with me about whether or not I should still pay for it. She charged me for the same plate twice. It was an awful dining experience and I will not be returning. There are too many other places with better food and better service.

Re: “Neil Jordan's Steakhouse

Ok..... Steakhouses should know their cuts of meat... Right? Neil Jordans tried to push off a NY Strip for a Ribeye. The justification from the waitress.... She pointed out the "eye" of the Ribeye for me. I wasn't buying it and neither was my friend sitting next to me who ordered the exact same piece of meat. His was a real Ribeye but believably it did not have an "eye" either. I can't believe the stupidty that went on at this restaurant on this day! I wasn't upset but I would have loved a Ribeye because that is what I ordered. The manager came over and removed the meal but only after I requested his appearance. We had 6 people at my table and they were through eating by the time they were willing to bring me what I had ordered. By then I was just not willing to hold up our entire party so I could eat the ribeye I ordered.... by myself! Too bad you can't give ZERO STARS! This is a Steakhouse and has the appearance of class and elegance.... enjoy it from the outside because its not worth it!!!!

Re: “Montreux Bar and Grill

I had a comment on here about how I was harassed by the staff. My buddy walked out on his thirteen dollar tab (which was a misunderstanding, and he went back and paid the next day). I was kept there by the waitress and bouncer and was threatened to had the police called on me for someone else tab. This comment some how was erased from the comment area. What kind of shady web site is this.

Re: “Mike Calder's Buffalo Pub

Terrible experience. Uncaring and unapologetic.

Ordered two burgers, one of which came with swiss cheese (per the menu description). My wife doesn't do swiss so she asked for a different cheese. The burger came to the table with swiss. She asked about it and the waitress took it back for a replacement. When it came back, a few minutes later, there was cheese still on the edge of the burger...they had only scraped it off. We waited, quite some time, for the waitress to return so we could ask about the burger. She was emphatic that they had cooked her another burger and that it must be mayonnaise we were seeing...but there was no mayonnaise on the burger. Not to mention mayo isn't rubbery and stick to burger meat. During this whole time I had not touched my burger as I don't eat until my entire party is ready. We stated that we were not satisfied and asked for the check. We were intending on paying for the meal even though we did not eat. The waitress left and came back to tell us, and I quote, "Just leave." She picked up our plates and walked away.

Never once during this exchange did the waitress offer an apology and never did we warrant a visit from any type of management. From reading the reviews below it seems the owner is setting a fine example. As they say...feces flows downhill.

Re: “Soundwave Records & Comics

By far the worst comic store I've ever been in. Service is terrible and the owner is a crook.

Re: “NV Dance Lounge

I went to NV last weekend and had a horrible experience! I googled the club to find a contact number and found all the the negative reviews, and boy they are certainly correct! A HORRIBLE club with awful treatment of customers. My advice to you, if you are looking for a good time, take you business elsewhere! I know that I will be in the future!
