Re: “Famous Mike's Peanuts

Mike is rude and disrespectful to his business neighbors. He shows no respect for the people around him in the Warehouse he works out of. I highly recommend that no one supports such a rude businessman here in Summerville.

Re: “Boone Hall Plantation

I never post feedback typically, but I am making an exception. My children and grandchildren were in town and I planned for us to attend the Low Country Christmas at Boone Hall. We had high expectations as being represented by Boone Hall and due to the cost of the event. We were extremely disappointed. The idea is phenomenal but very underdone. I realize this is their first year and perhaps some feedback will help them. Too few food venders, too few activities included with price. The long lines with a let down of product offered. Santa's workshop was rushed through and needs more live interaction, live props, not just painted walls. The Christmas Village could have used some pizazz, like a snow flake machine, more shops or interactive activities for kids. The hayride was fun, but truthfully, needed much more lights, could really have been all lights and just fun Christmas music playing and a guide to encourage interaction, we sang one song at the very end of the ride. One of my biggest gripes was no facilities for babies, I had to change my one of my grandchildren on the floor of a building on her coat. Needless to say I will not be recommending this event. I'm sorry to be so negative but I had such high hopes as it was the main activity I had planned during their stay. The lights at James Island is far more economical and well worth the trip.

Re: “Smoke BBQ

It is criminally overpriced and mediocre. They charged $18 for pulled pork or $21 for brisket with two sides. The pork was okay but nothing special and no taste of smoke at all. The brisket was a study in bad barbecue technique, starting with too much fat and ending with being overcooked. The sides sounded great but were bland and flavorless.

Re: “D.D. Pecker's Wing Shack

tried them a couple of times. First, wife is from Philly, I lived there with her a couple of years, and the reason we went there the first time was because of that description. Ain't even close. And the wings? Dipped in bottled sauce and way undercooked ( I'm talking red and raw at the bone) the first time, overcooked the second. We used to live about 4 blocks from the joint, but after the second try we never went back.

Re: “Daniels Landing Club House

Club house is nice and setting is okay. I stayed at 4108 unit and could not say enough bad things. Water damage in the bathroom led to mold issue that was unending. Owner decided to change tile in both bathrooms during my stay- I was forced to move out for a week. Told I would be compensated but after lease ended of course I received no refund. Carpets are stained and appliances are the lowest grade. STAY AWAY

Re: “Tattooed Moose, JI

"I humbly ask the ownership to take note of these trends in comments. I just hope they get this bit corrected."

Seeing as how you copied and pasted this exact same post from 2 years ago, I'd say you have your answer. They're too cool to give a shit about customer service. And after 10 pm they're too wasted to give a shit.

Re: “Republic Garden and Lounge

Republic lost all credibility with us...Thursday night found us looking forward to the Third Annual School Supply Drive at Republic. (http://www.charlestoncitypaper.com/charleston/third-annual-school-supply-drive-at-republic/Event?oid=5349300) We shopped for supplies, having fun thinking about when WE were back in school so many years ago, and looking forward to an evening of cocktails and supporting a good cause. On the way over the bridge, we even heard an advertisement for the event.

Imagine our surprise when the host knew nothing about the event. So we went to the bar and found out...nothing. No one knew anything about the event. We asked several other patrons who were also holding book bags of school supplies. Nothing. Finally, one gentleman at the bar said a manager had come out, and bought him a drink, but that event was cancelled. So we asked to see a manager. We were told he was out (at 10:00 p.m. on a Thursday??).

We figured we would enjoy a cocktail at least, to salvage the evening. We stood at the bar (with 5 empty stools), and a bartender directly in front of us, wiping glasses, for over 7 minutes. No acknowledgement, no order, nothing. And two other bartenders at the end, talking to each other.

At this, we gave up and left. Yesterday, we stopped by Mamie Whitesides Elementary, and dropped off the supplies to an extremely grateful Ms. Pounder, the principal, working outside at the school doing landscaping.

Republic, you dropped the ball on this in a big way...

P.S. Does it seem absurd that a bar bans ball caps inside, but then is selling a ball cap with their name on it?

Not smoke free. The addicts sit at an outside bar and blow smoke across to the inside of the building.
Not acceptable.

Re: “James Island Town Hall

Why doesn't this site have a listing of problems people have and who they call to resolve them? I need to know who to contact about installing a culvert so I may construct a driveway to my property. Also, to whom do I speak about missing street signs? Minor issues such as these could be listed without having to tie up personnel in the office. Giving a list of nearby restaurants doesn't seem the primary business of the Town.

Re: “1st Choice HVAC Services

Avoid this guy. He takes your money and never does the work. Please be sure to google/research his "business." There has been many complaints, court cases, etc. Don't let this man take advantage of your money. He has a reputation for never showing up to complete the work after he has been paid. Please AVOID this guy, there are plenty more reputable companies out there.

Bad food, bad service, zero ambiance. Every time I go here I regret it. Tattooed Moose Johns Island can't open soon enough.

Re: “Cory's Grilled Cheese

Food itself is great, but after catching serious attitude from the staff multiple times(NOT Cory himself), I decided to stop patronizing this place. One example is ordering food over the phone and the owner, Cory, takes my order, and he tells me that it will be ready no earlier than 30 mins from now because they have to get more of a type of cheese necessary to make that sandwich. When I show up 25 mins later, don't roll your eyes and say "FINALLY" when I arrive, telling me that I am 15 mins late.

Re: “Vickery's Bar and Grill

I had the occasion to visit the area for the first time today. I asked around about a good place to eat lunch near the water and was told about Vickery's. But I'm sorry to say that I was not thrilled. First of all, the hostess never said a word when I walked in. She just gave me a weird look. I had to do the speaking. That should be a huge no-no. Part of her job should be greeting customers with a smile. She, honestly, was pretty unfriendly. I chose lemonade for a beverage and it was okay but tasted flat. The slaw I had was unedible. It was bitter and tasted terrible. I'm not sure if it was bad or not but I wasn't going to take a chance. I chose the fried shrimp and they were good but I was surprised at how tiny they were. The fries were lukewarm and wimpy. All in all, I spent $23 for a lunch that, in my opinion, was of far less quality than Red Lobster. I was pretty disappointed.

Re: “Bushido

I went a few times when they first opened. The service was terribly slow. The food was hit and miss.

As has been stated by others, these guys do not know how to make sushi rice, for some reason. It is wet and soggy. The flavor is not correct for sushi rice.

The last straw was when I went to get some takeout. I bought quite a bit because I like to snack on it all night. When I got home and took it out, the tuna had thick white stripes. This is not fat, it is connective tissue or gristle from a part of the steak that you should never use to make nigiri sushi with. I tried one piece, and had to spit it out. It was like eating a rubber band. I could not force myself to swallow it.

I drove straight back there, and told them I wanted my money back (which they did without argument). When I got back in the car to go home, I noticed it smelled like someone had farted in there. That's how bad the fish was.

I will never go back.

Re: “Halls Chophouse

Overpriced. Average food. WEIRD management. I have never been to a restaurant with such intrusive owners. It is CREEPY. Go to wikipedia and look up pompous and you will see Billy's face. So many better options in this city. Don't bother.

Re: “Cactus Car Wash

Had the worst experience today. I paid for a hand wash / wax for $25.00 only to get a hand wash ONLY. A couple of months ago, I purchased a hand wash / wax for the same amount $25.00. Today, the Mgr Will, refused to wax the car stating that $25.00 was for the hand wash only. NOT RIGHT. Bait and switch....I think so. You can go thru the machine in the same amount of time, and you get WAX. The finish team does the vacuum and windows in either case....why spend the extra money only to get scammed.

Re: “Life Chiropractic Center

Dr. McGill talked me into signing a contract on a Monday, and then informed me that he was retiring that Wednesday. He should have informed me of his retirement while I was signing my contract, instead of deceiving me to believe that he would be my chiropractor. His replacement is a pompous man that did not look over my X-rays before treating me, which is dangerous, if not life-threatening. We also had a differing opinion on health (he does not believe in vaccinations) and he began making fun of my beliefs, calling me "an argumentative girl". By the end of my contract, I felt unwelcome by the chiropractor. I would not recommend this practice to anyone.

Re: “Consign Charleston

Nope. Jules1990 is right - they are total rip-off artists. Acting as if they are doing you a favor by trying to sell someone else's junk at a 500% mark-up. Save yourself some time & just go to Goodwill or Habitat ReStores...at least the people who work there are friendly. If I could give Consign Charleston .25 stars, I would.
