Re: “Triangle Char and Bar


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.

Re: “Triangle Char and Bar

Look I'm not a food critic, but I do have a lot of restaurant experience back of the house and front. That being said, first of all Triangle's location is perfect, the atmosphere was awesome. The service was okay, and the menu looked really interesting for a char grill. But the food me and my wife had was less than disappointing. The asparagus fries were flat and the aioli was like mayo and lemon......Horrible! We also tried all four of the egg rolls and the sauces, not worth the money at all! The Steak and Chicken skewers had no taste of lime or ginger at all. And the peanut butter I'm sorry "peanut sauce" was well, peanut butter. The champaign vinagerette was lame and had no signature. And the Pork loin platter was awful. The pork was cooked well but the the balsamic stuff tasted like pancake syrup, the sauteed spinach was like sauteed garlic with salt. Gross! The only thing worth anything on this platter was the sweet potatoe fries. Thank God they were out of the lamb flank because it would have been 3 extra dollars wasted. I wish I would have tried the burgers and maybe the comment would have been better but I wont go back to try my fate.

Re: “Montreux Bar and Grill

This place may rock on the weekends but it does nothing for you during the week. Had some dinner there with friends not to long ago. The food was so so, the cook must be sleep walking thru his/her cooking and the mixed drinks seem to be watered down. New inexperienced bar person I guess. Anyway I think there are a couple of other places in Summerville I would rather go to if I lived out there. Maybe thats the difference before Summerville and Charleston. Charleston folk expect the best and I guess if the best in Summerville is Montreux then the clientel is settleing for less than best, actually less the good. Must be a hick kind of thing.

Re: “Montreux Bar and Grill

Most definetly sounds like staff to me also. The last time I checked I lived in the United States of America where all citizens are entitled to their opinion. Don't tell this person HOW DARE HE, he can post his opinion on the internet if he wants!!!! Which by the way, when this place was McGuires it was awful, just because you change the name and gussie up the place doesn't mean the place is any better. McGuires...Montreux it is still pretty awful. They still serve drunks, they don't cut them off,the staff at one time showed improvement but they are back to ignoring you, texting or talking on their c phones or posting comments on this page about how wonderful Montreux is. What a SHAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: “Montreux Bar and Grill

I also live on James Island and went to Montreux with some friends who had heard it was worth the trip. I don't think its worth the trip. We were at the bar and the food was so so. Not worth the money they charged for it. The comments posted by "Roof" sounded a little too close to home. It sounds like an employee or owner trying to discredit other peoples opinion if their opinion is glowing with wonderful things about this place. Prehaps they should look up the word OPINION in the dictionary. You know the old saying....If you cannot take the heat, get out of the kitchen. I will not return to even try this place a 2nd time nor will I recommend it to anyone else.

Re: “Home Team BBQ

For 2+ years now my wife and I have heard rave reviews for Fiery Ron's BBQ. We love BBQ, and trying new restaurants. We are definitley loyal if we love a particular place, and we often find ourselves recommending bars and restaurants to family and friends in and out of towners. We also go to Sullivans beaches nearly every weekend. So we walk into Hometeam very excited about trying out the place. It was around 3pm in the afternoon on a Sunday I think. We stood there in the doorway for at least 10 minutes with servers, bussers, bartenders, and probably managers walking by several times. It was busy, I will give them that, but we not so much as had a look in our direction. I've been in the food and beverage business for nearly a lifetime, and don't mind waiting for great food. What pisses me off more than bad service, is not even being acknowledged that we exist in that moment in time! So after being ignored for about a total of 15 minutes, and feeling like a dumbass for waiting that long, we left and went across the street to Poe's and once again had an enjoyable experience! To the staff, at least say "hello," or even "we will be with you in a few minutes." Terrible first impression there Ron. I'll take my $ down to that BBQ joint across from Buddyroe's.

Re: “Blind Tiger

decent food, Priced ok I guess. not a good atmosphere. The manager Lisa appeared to have no clue what was going on and the cook Mitch is kind of a jerk.

Re: “Montreux Bar and Grill

Have been to this place several times now. Have been reading all the posts. They are interesting. Some nights it is okay, some nights is chaotic in there. They do allow just about any one, drunk or sober. They never cut anyone off and the obnoxious drunks are allowed to stay. The place needs to be more consistent. It's like that also with the food. Sometimes its good and sometimes its bad. They haven't found a happy medium. They need to!!!

Re: “Montreux Bar and Grill

all the comments made me curious about the place so I visited. Didn't really think the place was any great standout. Wouldn't go back. Better places to go and drink and eat and listen to music. It's in line with Summerville....OLD

Re: “Stiletto's

I went to this place. Told some friends to come out and i will meet them at the joint. So when my friends finally came I was leaving. The girl at the door just swiped my homeboy's card and he ask if he can get a refund because he did not go in. So the girl point to some hidden board behind her that so call say no refund. This club is a bunch of BULLShit!!! The girls here belong on the streets! They look very shitty. I've seen better!!! Regardless of the incident I would recommend somewhere else because this place is full of SHIT!!! Make a U turn!

Re: “Montreux Bar and Grill

It is possible that the Montreux staff are putting up these 5 star comments to prop the place up? Wow what a great way to generate business. Not very honest if true. The place is okay but nothing to write home about. They still let drunks in who bother other customers, they don't appear to cut off anyone who is so obviously drunk. The food, well what can I say, it isn't a 5 star kitchen turning out gourmet meals. Its bar food and not very good bar food. Between my friends and me we have ordered most of items the tiny little menu has to offer. It seemed there for awhile the place was getting better, now over the last 5/6 months it's turning back into McGuires but under a different name and different management. Oh well, it had the potential to be good, but it doens't quite get there....ever!

Re: “Montreux Bar and Grill

I have visited this place twice. Once last December then again this past March. It isn't the greatest place in the world and though its at low end of not good, I have unfortunately been to a place worse. The food coming out from the kitchen is very inconsistent. I had the shrimp and grits and it was good. I had them again in March and the shrimp was floating in fat. My friends also said they food was basically thrown togeather and tasted like cardboard. The drinks were definetly watered down. We paid our bill and left without any future notions of returning. There are far too many GREAT places to eat, drink and be entertained to spend our money at then to spend it here. As my friends and I read the prior comments we really wondered if the five star reviews were the work of employees. If so, very sad, very dishonest

Re: “Montreux Bar and Grill

there seems to be a whole lot of scuttle butt going back and forth about this place. After initially reading the comments I thought I wouldn't step foot in the place. My friends had come from downtown to this place on several occasions and were mixed about it which convinced me even more not to see. Well as it happened I was in Summerville about a week ago and decided to go in on the spur of the moment. I truly wasn't impressed. I guess thats why this place is in Summerville. It would have closed months ago if downtown. I didn't see any family moments or up and coming professionals in the place. If the staff is nice to any one I didn't see it. Too busy texting. Oh well. I didn't expect anything great and I certainly didn't get any thing great.

Re: “Neil Jordan's Steakhouse

What a disappointment!!! That's all I can say about this place. For anyone who enjoys a decent steak....DO NOT COME HERE! I saw this restaurant advertised as a USDA Prime Steakhouse so I had to give it a try. Let me start off by mentioning that I have had USDA Prime steaks all over the country. If you have never had a USDA Prime steak you are missing out. There is a reason why there are so few Prime steakhouses around. A USDA Prime steak is amazing....the meat melts in your mouth. They are truly worth the extra money you spend. I got the $33 so called "prime" ribeye. This was one terrible piece of meat. I've probably grilled a thousand Ribeye's at my house and never one this fatty. I can say for a fact that is place is getting ripped off if they are buying "prime" meat from their supplier. Maybe it's from Mexico?? I don't know but do not go here for a steak....truly disappointing.

As for the service...average

As for the decor and setting...nice but it can't be hard to keep the place looking nice when there is no one in it. There was one other guy sitting at the bar when my wife and I ate here.

I can't comment on the rest of the menu but from that joke of a steak that I had.....GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!!!

Re: “Montreux Bar and Grill

After going to this place and having such a terrible experience, I think some of the posting are put up by the owners to make other think this is the greatest place in the world. The food coming out is not only over priced, it is tasteless. Who ever is back there needs to go to cooking school. The drinks are over priced and they don't care what sort of person gets in....mostly drunks who should have been cut off at the bar they visited prior.

Re: “Montreux Bar and Grill

I just read the comments posted about Montreux. I have been there several times based on what my friends told. Each time the place has gotten worse. The bouncers stand around and let the obvious drunks harass and bother the other patrons. The staff used to be friendly and nice, they all have sour attitudes now. The food is absolutely horrible. Why would anyone throw away their hard earned money on the slop coming out of the kitchen. Initially I thought they were having a bad night, but two other visits later I realized it was more than a bad night. I have crossed this place off my list...forever and I would think a great many others have or about to do the same. What a dive!!

Re: “Neil Jordan's Steakhouse

I had been waiting to try this restaurant for quite some time. So last night me and a friend of mine drove out there for dinner. We both love our steaks and had recently been to Grill 225 to enjoy one of their USDA Prime melted in your mouth (@ Grill 225). As soon as we saw Neil Jordans was a USDA Prime Steakhouse we knew we had to try it. Afterall, Prime beef is the top 2% of all beef in America. I raised an eyebrow when we pulled in at 6:30 p.m. and were literally the only cars in te parking lot. We walked in and of course we were the only people in there. We each proceeded to order the 14 ounce USDA Prime Ribeye. Our mouths were salivating as we waited for our much anticipated steaks. As our waitress set our steaks in front of us and walked away, we both looked at eachother and said,"what the hell is this." I was shocked by how much fat was on these steaks. Ribeyes should have some fat on them but this was amazing. The steaks just looked like a mess. As we tried our first bites we both realized that this was not a prime steak. Anyone who has had prime beef knows the difference....this was a joke. By the time we were done, we each had about 4 ounces of fat and grissle (i didn't think a ribeye could have grissle) left on our plates. We were absolutlely shocked and very upset. To add insult to injury this place didn't have any sour cream for the baked potatoes!!! A steakhouse with no sour cream for the baked potatoes...are you kidding me! As we both sat there and complained to eachother about how horrible these steaks were, the waitress came by and asked how we liked them. I promptly told her that it was the worst steak I had ever had in a restaurant....and I am not exaggerating. I told her that there was no way this a USDA Prime piece of meat. She was shocked and quickly told me that all their steaks are USDA Prime. It even said so on the package. She went on to tell mee that each steak comes pre-packaged and is cut open just before it is grilled! Are you kidding me....a USDA PRIME steakhouse and they serve pre-packaged crap! I had heard enough. I was so mad I just wanted to get out of there. We paid our rediculous $85 dollar bill and left.
This was my worst restaurant experience ever! You could get a better frickin steak at Golden Corral! This place is a scam...they are not serving USDA PRIME BEEF...NO WAY! I knew there was a reason why we were the only people in this place....IT SUCKS!

Re: “Sesame Burgers & Beer

I've now tried out sesame a couple times. The food is decent. The wait staff is cold, at best, they are inattentive and unhelpful. I tried to watch a game, but everyone was too busy to change the channel for me. This will be the last time I go to Sesame. I recommend you don't even try it--the food isn't worth the hassle.
