Re: “Madra Rua

Great place for a pint o' beer... good atmosphere for hanging with friends (4+ stars). The food is good, but not wow, fairly typical (3 stars).

Re: “Mike Calder's Buffalo Pub

rayjay is a pissed-and-bitter out-of-towner who was so juvenile that he pouted and asked for the remainder of his dinner order to go and did not leave a tip, even after the staff explained the situation to him (I was a regular local patron at the bar that night as well). This is an awesome hangout and highly favored by locals and visitors alike.

Re: “The Gin Joint

Great little place and an extensive drink list. We sat in the front toward the door so it was hard to hear what kind of music they were playing, if any. That would be my only suggestion for them--get a better sound system and/or bring in some live fun music. Even better if you could open the doors to the patio out front. We'll be coming back for sure!

Re: “Chucktown Tavern

Hardcore downtown "suits" happy hour crowd. Pool, darts, foul language, stiff drinks, mostly hospitality and hotel industry regulars. Except they're all friggin' Boston fans. What's up with that?!

Re: “The Gin Joint

Drinks are absolutely fantastic and the staff is very friendly and knowleadgable. The drinks are more expensive than your average establishment, but they are worth it.
Perfect place to have a few pre-drinks or grab some late night snacks. The chocolate pie with pop rocks (yes, pop rocks) is heaven on a plate.

Re: “Monza

Monza has the ultimate Caesar Salad. It really proves that amazing ingredients are the key to amazing food. I love their pizzas, love their salads, and during the winter get their bread pudding. IT IS AMAZING. I loved it so much I begged the chef to give me their recipe and she did. i love monza...sometimes their staff does have some attitude but whatever I just sass them back. Luckily I love their food or else I probably wouldnt go back after some of the experiences I have had with 2 of their waitresses

Re: “Smoky Oak Taproom

Been there a few times, no problems at all. The food was Awesome! Brisket & BBQ best in the area. Having the ability to travel in Texas, Memphis & ST Louis, I still find the BBQ in the South so much better. I maybe spoiled, but there is nothing like getting Pork, chicken, ribs, whatever straight off the smoker, Sauce optional, as real BBQ does not need any.
The only drawback is a few bartenders do ignore "Non Regulars". I was overcharged for beers which I did not order or drink. So it happens, but more then once? Shame on them. I learned to bring in cash & pay as I go, problem solved! Tell them I tip at the end, got better service.

Re: “Smoky Oak Taproom

Since I haven't had the chance to attend I'll give the pub/BarBQ the benefit of the doubt. Through my observation of most of all of the above, it may me true that the neightborhood does not want the establishment located there.

Re: “O'Lacy's Pub

Great place in Summerville. Lot's of friendly locals, great staff. The owner is usually there most of the time for a friendly chat. They have local bands every Friday, and on Saturday's the Karaoke get's rockin' around 9:30. The Karaoke has a very wide variety of music to sleect from and most of the time, if the KJ does not have a song, he will try to find it and get it within minutes. He plays great musical selections to fill in the time between singers if needed.

Re: “Laura Alberts Tasteful Options

finally made it to Laura Albert's for lunch. Food was awesome! I got the seared tuna sandwich. nice, thick cut of tuna, seared wonderfully, piled high with fresh tomato. side of asian slaw which i did feel was missing a little something but couldn't place it. also, this was a little expensive for a place i could come on the regular (good thing it was a work lunch), $13 for the sandwich, but def worth it!

Re: “Chucktown Tavern

Surprisingly fun place to host a private party and slurp down a few "Trash Cans." Place is low key, but in a weird location (across from old Vickery's that's now closed, boo hoo : ( Wish the pool table was full size, but still OK. Food is high quality fare, and close to CofC, but it's NOT a place to take a date. Definitely a local happy hour and Boston sports bar. Nice patio, except for the endless horse and buggies coming down Market Street. Reminds me of Abe's in Mt. Pleasant for some reason...

Re: “Grindz Burgers & Brew

Unique flavors of wings and they are delicious! My fav is the rasberry sauced wings. The staff is really down to earth and friendly. I'd avoid dining at lunch. I have heard the service lacks at that time of day. Great low key spot for evening!

Re: “EVO Pizza

O, EVO, let me count the ways!

Pros: Fresh ingredients straight from the farm to your plate. Salads are delicious, Pizza crust is cooked to perfection, toppings make everything come together. Staff are friendly and attentive. Location is clean and bright.

Cons: Wish you were open more often and a tad bit cheaper.

A must for anyone...Will return and recommend to friends.

Re: “Laura Alberts Tasteful Options

I thoroughly enjoyed my lunch at Laura Alberts. Not too long ago, I met my girlfriends for a glass of wine. They have quite a selection, but what I enjoyed was the relaxed atmosphere and ambiance. I will be back for their Wednesday dinner! The menu looks fabulous.

Re: “Market Street Saloon

Dj Miketech is what makes the saloon the place to be on the weekends. The bar staff is nice, but they keep killing all the good songs with their so called mic skills.
After 1130. They shouldn't do anything but serve drinks. The Dj can handle the crowd.... Love the saloon. The only place I want to be on the weekends.

Re: “Hominy Grill

I had a shrimp etouffee. Nothing fancy but so well balanced a mix of flavors that I enjoyed the last bite more than the first - it grew on me with experience.

My wife comes from the Roussillion region of France, where chicken livers are eaten often. She declares the chicken livers at the Hominy Grill the best she ever had.

And let me second the comment on the lima beans. I never liked lima beans before.

The service was fair, the atmosphere unpretentious almost to a fault. The food is a bargain for the quality.
