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: “Shem Creek Bar and Grill

"This seafood restaurant boasts two bar areas — an inside bar shaped like the bow of a boat with three beers on tap, and an oyster bar toward the back, decorated with fishing gear."

Actually, it has three bars. The third is the only dock bar on Shem Creek (as in, it's built on pilings over the creek).

This place has been in business in 1982. The food is good, including the steaks, but service can be a inconsistent.

Re: “Fleet Landing

Amazing views. I've only been once and had the shrimp and grits, but will definitely be back.

Re: “39 Rue De Jean

Great mussels mariniere. French fries are like crack. Good service. Can be very noisy on weekends, but so many restaurants are. Quiet ones are ones without people. What does that say?

Re: “Leon's Oyster Shop

I must admit, this afternoon at Leon's, was a wonderful way to spend a Saturday afternoon. We sat at your oyster bar, and made me feel like I was at Acme's or Felix's oyster bar. The best part was we we're here in our own home of Charleston,
eating select oysters from Light House point I believe from Va. They were outstanding and sipping on a original Coors Banquet draft. Your entire wait staff made our dining experience even more pleasurable. I believe his name was Tom, great job by him, and your new bar keeper.
We ate a half dozen of the oysters, which were spot on, and we both had the 2 piece fried chicken, the best I've ever had, along with the Cauliflower soup, which will have me coming back for another bowl.

Re: “Halls Chophouse

I frequent Halls quite often both for personal enjoyment and for business entertainment. I have never had a bad time, a bad meal or a bad experience. It has always been over the top good in all 3 categories. We are fortunate to have the Hall family and Hall's Chophouse here in Charleston!

Re: “Halls Chophouse

Atmosphere nice, food great, owners southern! I have lived in the south my entire life..most of these reviews are from people that haven't! Never be rude about a lady and her family because of a meal you thought was ok to begin with apparently they are working hard to make it great experience . Hatefulness go back up north!

Re: “Edmund's Oast

I've been there several times. Speaking focused on the food, beverage, decor and service while ignoring the prices, I had a great experience each time. Staff is knowledgeable and helpful. But my one reservation is the price point. The small plates have almost always been tasty, but $11-$14 for really small plates, or $12 for the same beer that other establishments of good quality charge $6-$8, that does annoy me. I know EO doesn't need my business, but I would go more often if prices were tuned down a bit for middle class folks.

Re: “Edmund's Oast

Went here for the first time last week after hearing about it and was pleased with the experience. Apps and entree's were a hit. Will be back!

Re: “Cha Cha's Mexican Grill

Ever since the opening of Cha Cha's, I only went here to party after-dark and have had mixed experiences, good and bad. It wasn't until last week that I decided to tag along to happy hour with some friends. I was blown away by the 1$ beef tacos and 1$ tecates. Seriously. Check it out.

Re: “Edmund's Oast

Small plates are yum. Space is gorg. I love skinny jeans but the previous review is really confusing. If my jeans made you dislike the restaurant I apologize?

Re: “Prohibition

I have not had the pleasure of dining there yet, but will tell you that each of the six or so times I have been, I have been able to hear my friends talking, which is uncommon in most of the bars on upper King Street. Sitting back Saturday night and watching a good looking defense end looking Charleston boy show off his shag moves to his girl was just wonderful. You could tell, his mother taught him well. Other your me tried to free style to "Carolina Girl", which just did not cut it with their ladies or the crowd. Girls gathered and swayed, waiting for a guy to come and ask them to shag. They were pretty and the guys just did not get it. That was sad. However, the other fellow stole the floor and he knew it.

Being able to see the jazz guys that used to play at Mistral from afar is awesome and I would never think that I would have seen that in a bar on Upper King Street. Even DJ Matt Todd was setting up as I was leaving, who could often be heard at LIGHT, Peter Evans' place down the street (of Stella Nova fame..) He will nail what the crown and the bar wants - and keeping it on the low key and not loud side will continue to be a pay off for this place.

Finally, NICE ladies at the entrance to meet you, greet you, and help you get a table and identify if you want food service or just drinks. Nice to have someone paying attention to you in a lovely way at the door - the way that it should be.

Re: “Bay Street Biergarten

I like the biergarten's relaxed atmosphere. If the inside gets too crowded or loud my friends and I usually go outside to play a round or two of corn hole with liters of beer in hand. The food is pretty good and I like the selection of beer they have. I have to say out of all the bars in Charleston biergarten probably has the best outside section since they have plenty of space to hang out.

Re: “Bay Street Biergarten

Bay Street Biergarten Review

If you're looking for a great selection of craft beers (mostly offered directly at the bar) or just want a large venue for socializing with a group of friends, this is a great spot. The table taps can be a little difficult to get to when crowded, but still a nice addition that bings a different style of service Charleston has been missing out on. With regards to food, there is pretty decent menu, but quite honestly most people go here for the beer selection, so its generally what you expect (the giant bowl of tattertots with cheese and gravy still always fun at any age). The staff has been friendly and accommodating as well.

The only issue I see is with parking around the area can be a llittle bit sketchy, since the lot always get full. However there is a giant lot that is open on the port terminal road that runs parallel to E. Bay.

Re: “Striped Pig Distillery

Wonderful space for an event. Went to a Guerrilla Cuisine dinner there a couple of weeks ago and was surprised at how pretty the distillery hardware looks with the right lighting and how warm and comfortable the space was - especially for a warehouse and work site, at that (the bathrooms are a literally shining example). A few strategically placed pieces of art (big works well) and beautifully set tables were all that was needed to transform what would be a cavernous area in the back into a really cool, even elegant, venue. I know others worked hard to make that transformation and I WAS under the influence of some fabulous food, but the end result of GC & others' efforts highlighted the possibilities of the distillery space itself. The Striped Pig people proved very hospitable folks, dedicated to their craft and eager to share the process & results with willing fans. Sampled some powerful but oddly delicious moonshine & a more finished product. It is obvious that a great deal of thought went into making this space a welcoming place to hang out, whether for an event or just a visit.
