Re: “Gerald's Tires

I found Geralds after getting a nail in my tire. Excellent customer service, very communicative and quick to do the job. I have since visited twice and have had nothing but kind, professional care on my 2015 Audi Q5. I highly recommend them!

Re: “Gerald's Tires

I got four new tires in the Geralds Mt Pleasant location and mentioned to the manager after the tires were installed that my low tire pressure light was on. The manager seemed annoyed and told me that BMW tire pressure indicators come on when the tires are changed. I ended pulling out my own tire gauge and took a reading showing him that the air pressure was only half of the recommended pressure. The manager seemed more annoyed than apologetic. I would not trust them especially with a nicer vehicle. These guys are turn and burn, and don't pay attention to details that could end up damaging your tire or vehicle.

Re: “ALDI

I don't need Whole Foods prices to buy nutritious food. Maybe some people need their grocery shopping to be "an experience," I would rather spend the money I save at Aldi ( usually $50-70 per week) on real experiences. Aldi is straight forward fresh food for a lot less than any store I've been to. I love hearing people complain about having to "pay a quarter" You get the quarter back when you return your cart. Bring your reusable bags and get ready to save!

Re: “Edmund's Oast

By the way, I have had the cheese plate at Edmunds two times, along with the sweater around the neck folks, and it is some of the best tasting cheese in the area. I wonder if it comes from that local farm over on Johns Island? Goat cheese tends to be a bit "tangy", and the offerings at Edmunds really fits the bill.
The beer selection is vast, and the more hops in a beer, the better I like it. Price is not that bad compared to the newer bars in the area. The clientele will eventually smooth out, and hopefully it will be a group that I like to hang with. So far there is parking available in the area, but with the huge expansion of food places up NoMo, I fear it may become a problem. So far the Union Headquarters is pretty good about parking in their place in the evening, so that is a definite safe option.....and for a good price. Free.

Re: “Edmund's Oast

The review by Brewengineer sounds like those reviews that show up for a well-known, but rather overpriced and boring chop house on King St. The wording and the phrases come right out of a "book of reviews" for critics. You can see right through them, and know the writers are often comped for their meals, and therefore write complimentary reviews of those places. I don't care about what the other customers are wearing, usually, but the sweaters around the neck cross the line.

Re: “King Street Cabaret

My first time there at the cabaret and by the way i am a 45 years old Caucasian man who loves my beautiful black sisters but when i went into the club i didnt see any i met some of the dancers there and sat and talk with a few of them and asked if they were any black girls there i was told that they dont hire black girls, bad enough no one greeted me coming into the club it was poor judgement, weird looks and horrible hospitality. I took my money and went to The Silver Slipper where i got treated with respect!!!! It was the worst experience ever. I wouldn't recommend this club to anyone

Re: “Long Island Cafe

DO NOT PAY WITH CASH at this restaurant. I was just shorted by $13.31 (party of three) ... Sam, our waiter, hoped I didnt notice .... but when you give $100 cash you count your change ... mistakes happen, so I brought it politely to his attention .... Sam said hed rectify the mistake .... second time I was shorted $3.31 .... Disgusting!!!! Brought the matter to the attention of the management .... didnt seem to concerned about the fraudulent behaviour of their server .... offered to give me the $3.31 back ... kidding me, right? Totally disgusted. Check your bill, check your change, especially if Sam is your server. DO NOT PAY with CASH at this restaurant .... you will probably get short changed.
Once a mistake .... twice ... what kind of fool do you take me for??????

Re: “Edmund's Oast

Should have named the joint - "Oldman's Boast" - to describe the ambiance enjoyed whilst one waits on a rude bartender to rancorously serve a horrible tasting over priced liquid in a warm glass.

Re: “Gerald's Tires

We here in Summerville really appreciate the work the folks at Gerald's does. Always nice, they go out of their way to give you great service. Very competitive in pricing, they always repair my tire punctures for free, regardless of whether or not I purchased them there. With my many vehicles, I eventually dress them in Gerald's tires once they wear out, so there are not many that don't have the Gerald's name on them. Keep up the good work and you'll stay my favorite place to have my cars fitted with your tires.

Re: “Gerald's Tires

I am amazed by the staff and accuracy of the work at this location. I came in as a first time customer today and will now become a life long one. The price was lower than other shops I requested quotes from and that's after geralds discovered additional items in need of repair. I got the added bonus of finding a lovely red rose on my passenger's seat as a token of appreciation for being a customer. THANK YOU! Finding a rare gem of a mechanic like this one, is one you keep for life.

Re: “RB's Seafood

When we visit Charleston RB's our my favorite place to eat - Shrimp and Grits. They are the best!. Prices are reasonable. Service has always been good. Great location to just hang out and watch the dolphins play or walk around Shem Creek.

Re: “The Boathouse at Breach Inlet

What a horrible experience. We were in SC on vacation, and made a reservation for the Boathouse. My wife and myself, along with our two daughters, aged 13 and 11, we're very excited about the meal, as my wife and I had been there many years ago on a getaway weekend, and remembered it fondly as a neat place, and a restaurant offering fine food.

We arrived on time, and were sat at a table in the middle of the main dining room. A man and woman with their three-year-old daughter were seated against the windows facing the water, and their child screamed for the first 30 minutes of the meal. We said nothing, and The parents produced an iPad for the child to watch, making sure the volume was turned all the way up. We let this go on for maybe 10 minutes or so, until it became unbearable. My wife, who was also pregnant, very politely walked over and asked the mother of the child if they would be so kind as to turn down the volume of the iPad. The mother huffed and puffed, and reluctantly turned down the volume. She then proceeded to look over at our table and told us to "shut the f"&) up, my child is three, how dare us." I looked over and said "how dare you speak that way in front of my children," where as the husband of this foul woman looked at me and told me to "back off."

We added a photo to show what it was like, right before this incident happened. As you can see, there is the Mother, on her phone, daughter LAYING DOWN on the booth, with her precious iPad blasting a movie and as bright as can be, while my Daughters continue to smile, excited to eat their meal!

Well, at this point we were ready to leave, as our night had been ruined. The bartender manager was very friendly, offering us his sincere apologies and to comp the meal. We refused, as at that point it was not the fault of the establishment. Now, as I said, this initial event was not the restaurant's fault, but what happens next is the issue that makes this place not even worthy of one star. As I was signing the bill, and after enduring additional abuse at the hands of these foul people, and watching the mother carry on as loudly as possible, singing children's songs with the young girl and laughing and making a fool of herself, all while sucking down their third drink in 20 minutes each, the actual head manager came over and consoled the foul people for their bad experience! He coddled these "regulars", as he followed me out, telling me to "calm down", and basically inferring that this issue was my fault!

All I did was act as any father should, and acting as any father would, I stood up for my children, as we don't speak that way in front of them, and nor should anyone else. I never used foul language, never raised my voice, never sunk to their level, but still, we we're the ones left leaving feeling as if WE did something wrong. These people should have been asked to leave, after using foul language in front of two young girls, berating a family trying to enjoy a meal, and basically telling us our opinion means nothing. They should have at least been moved, especially after the bar manager offered to pay for our meal, as he knew without a doubt that this issue was most DEFINITELY not a result of anything that we did. How dare that manager! He neither saw the event, nor asked any staff member a question, he just made assumptions and partnered with the wrong side.

We will never eat here again, nor should anyone else!

Re: “Halls Chophouse

My wife and I live in the Charleston area and have eaten at halls numerous times. We love it. The steaks are to die for. We often go on the spur of the moment and eat at the bar. The Halls do sometimes politely ask how you are enjoying your experience, something any good restaurant will do. It is pricey, but it tracks with what other fine steak houses charge for top notch beef. Pay no attention to the low ratings - the people who are posting them are clearly insane.

Re: “Halls Chophouse

Hall's is top notch across the board; frankly, I think that these reviews shooting the place down are pretty mean-spirited. The Hall family is a class act, and I have very good memories of their kindness to me and my wife and young daughter. Good people bringing top notch food to Charleston.

But hey, haters are gonna hate...

Re: “The Refuge

I saw your write-up in Charleston Living magazine and would LOVE the recipe for the Shrimp Grit Cake. Any chance of getting it? My husband has been gone for 3 years and I haven't been able to come back to IOP, but hope to soon and now I have a new place to eat very close by. I wish I were there now.
