Re: “Black Bean Co.

I am typically not one to complain or write a bad review but I felt this is something that needs to be said and could prevent and issue for customers in the future. My husband and I went here for lunch one day while celebrating our one year wedding anniversary in Charleston. I have a gluten issue (causes severe anxiety and tonic clonic seizures) and their website said they have gluten free options so we thought it was perfect.

We get there and I order a sausage, egg and cheese wrap because the board said it could be made with a gluten free wrap. I ask the server THREE times that she was sure it was gluten free (I even asked the type of wrap so I could confirm, but she didn't know, but promised it was). We get our food, after waiting quite a while, and begin to eat. I should have gone with my gut feeling because I knew something was wrong. The wrap was too chewy to be GF and did not taste right.

After the meal I went back to the register and asked if the lady could get my the packaging for the wraps. She went and got them and as soon as I got them I started to cry. First ingredient- ENRICHED BLEACHED FLOUR. It literally says on the front of the packaging CONTAINS WHEAT. I was livid. The lady (who was extremely sweet) immediately said "I am SO SORRY, we were told they were gluten free, let me go get my manager". She came back rather quickly and said "he wants me to give you a refund", so she did. I then asked if he was going to come out and speak to us because this was NOT okay. She proceeded to tell me "he is too busy", which was absolutely ridiculous. I did not care about the money, I wanted them to know that they could seriously hurt someone if they keep serving "allergy friendly foods" that are not what they are claiming them to be!

Luckily, I did not have a seizure, just a mild headaches and belly issues. It could have been a lot worse. TERRIBLE customer service (the manager, not the servers) for not addressing the issue with us directly.

ASK FOR THE PACKAGING BEFORE YOU ORDER IF YOU HAVE A FOOD ALLERGY OR SENSITIVITY!

Re: “Page's Okra Grill

One of the best sandwiches I've ever had. Charleston or elsewhere.

The PBT is amazing. It's got pimiento cheese, fried green tomatoes, apple-wood smoked bacon on Texas toast. Delicious.

I agree with the other reviews that it can be busy at times, I usually avoid the crowds and go a little later at night once the dinner rush is over. It means eating later, but also better service and shorter waits. Highly recommend.

Also, the BBQ cheese fries are great to snack on!

Re: “Black Bean Co.

A "health food" place with No calorie, fat or sugar information available. Pistachios in my no nuts on the ingredients list, Baja style salad. Lemonade was water - not watery, just water. Green tea was also just water! We paid for combos which means a side and a drink, and we all had just water. Counter help was on her phone entire time and made no offer to make anything right. We won't be back!!

Re: “Toast of Charleston

I've only had breakfast here, but it was almost as good as waffle house and just 3 times more expensive

Re: “Black Bean Co.

Although I love the BB Co., they tend to be inconsistent with ingredients, and for the price you pay for their food they truly need to stay on top of things and deliver what customers order. I love that James Islanders can get healthy food on the go that's super tasty. Best wraps on the island since the Daily Dose.

Re: “The Park Cafe

I've been to Park Cafe twice. Pretentious, overpriced and blah food. The restrooms are labeled "WC" like we're in England. I've had the smoked chicken salad and the honey poached turkey sandwiches. Both were fresh and well put together, but just lacking any kind of flavor punch for the price. I prefer the sandwiches at Ted's butcherblock and Sunrise bistro express.

Re: “Cory's Grilled Cheese

Nutella, PB and Marshmallow or grilled PBJ....simply the greatest. Don't care how long it takes, I will wait for my fix. Also, I never catch attitude from anyone here.
Corys=good.

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: “Marina Variety Store

We had a nice experience here for lunch. The cost of food has made it difficult for places like this to provide good food at a value. My wife had the lobster Po Boy and I had the grilled shrimp. The lobster was very lightly fried which is not an easy thing to do. Much easier, and most places do, batter heavy and fry the hell out of something. This was not the case. Really well prepared.

The shrimp was OK but a very small portion. The bread was at the end of it's freshness so really didn't eat much of it. The service was good to very good. As a rookie I didn't know to bring my parking ticket with to be validated so my server said "no problem, I'll get you a pass." Much appreciated.

As an old dog with lots of experience, it's obvious to me that this is a breakfast place and I can't wait to give it another try.

Re: “Folly Beach Shrimp Company

There was a HUGE miscommunication between our party and Shrimp Co. We had a party of about 55 people (give or take) show up unexpectedly. They stepped up to the plate and did an amazing job serving us from the bar as well as from the kitchen. Despite the stress and craziness, their staff was fun, friendly and more than willing to take on the daunting task of having an unexpected party our size. I'll definitely be coming here again and recommending then to everyone I know! P.S. Aside from their awesome service, their BBQ nachos and Crab Cakes are AMAZING!!!
