Re: “Bottles

So when did they have 2 "Grand" Openings? They had what in the world of retail is called, a "soft" opening a few weeks before. But I only saw and heard of 1 Grand Opening. And I agree with nofaith, lawyers should stay out of liquor stores on their lunch breaks... And their beer selection is pretty good. They don't have room yet for singles, but I was told that would be in the near future as well.

Re: “Charleston Beer Exchange

Ok, ok. After discussions with many about my review, maybe i overreacted. maybe i was the one having the bad day and i did the same thing that i myself complained about and took it out on an undeserving party. I am giving 4 stars to even out to a 2.5 star rating. Jerks was probably a little too strong and it's really only one person who has rubbed me the wrong way so it's not fair to group the entire store in that light. I will maintain that the level of service i have recieved on many occasions was disheartening. I will maintain that their selection is incredible. And let's be serious, I will still go to some of those beer dinners because the quality, menu, and value is exceptional. Also, i wish i had an alias on citypaper website and not my name...haha

Re: “52.5 Records

I disagree with the above review. 52.5 is a great, funky, local place to poke around in and see what you can come up with. i have found some great obscure records in the 25cents bin and some fun nostalgic bday presents for friends. Its not a place to find everything that you are looking for, but something you never thought to find.

Re: “The Olive Oil Shop

I'm an olive oil freak, and this shop fills the bill quite nicely! I picked up the Picual oil. Apparantly, this olive will have an extremely limited pressing this season. Get it while you can!

Re: “Boone Hall Plantation

We arrived early and enjoyed watching the various events and then the parade. We left after that and it seems like it was a good thing to leave then from the reviews I have read. When we left there was about 1,000 cars parked and more were coming in. Glad we got there early and left early.

Re: “East Cooper Women's Center

Let me 1st say, the doctors are nice. Of course you will have to wait until they call u back. Prepare yourself for 1hr and a half to 2 hrs if you have something plannned or have to work. The front desk are not so welcoming, particularly the black lady. She is rude, does not smile and does not greet you at all. Looks like she ate something bad and decided to take it out on the pregnant lady. She talks so low that you have to ask her to repeat herself and she gets an attitude with you. I've seen her treat the other patients like this, so at least it not me. It makes the visit very uncomfortable. No southern hospitality with this lady. So if you're ok with the wait and want to be disrespected then this is the place.

Re: “Frothy Beard Brewing

I agree with RealBeerGuru. They had a small selection of their own beers on tap, and then had to fill up the rest with beer from other breweries. I've never been a huge fan of their beers, but they were OK. Pizza was also just OK. It also seemed to me like they had baked it earlier and re-heated it. It's a cool spot and nice facility, however.

Re: “Frothy Beard Brewing

Was looking forward to this, but they only had 4 beers on tap, I think they had a dozen when they were off Ashley Phospate. Big pizza slices had ok taste, but they were obviously baked much earlier and then retopped and reheated.

Re: “Mike's Bikes

Very disappointing experience, received an estimate on phone for $40 for cascade and chain to be replaced on my old Trek. When I dropped the bike off, they upped the maximum potential estimate to $60 with no change in the scope of work. When I picked the bike up, they charged me $72. their explanation was they always need to adjust the derailer (sp?) when they replace a cascade and chain. When I questioned the manager on why it was not included in the first two estimates he blew me off as if I was trying to take advantage of him. There are several bike shops in Mount Pleasant, I suggest you shop around.

Re: “Bottles

This is a mini total wine (some staff included).

Wine selection is fairly limited, Beer is probably a quarter of what CBX jams into their store, and about equal toi the better piggly wigglys. Lot of losers mixed in to the beer section; in about a year people will be cautioning you to watch dates on the beer. Liquor selection is good, but poorly organized.

I also hate placing the same item throughout the store, very annoying.

Staff is not at all educated in the products (this goes up to management)

Re: “The Olive Oil Shop

If you're into processed, flavored oils, then this is your place. If you're looking for cold pressed, unfiltered traditional oils, then you'll be disappointed. But I guess like most of the stores on King Street, they cater to the tourists. I've been able to find traditional oils (filtered) just as good in local grocery stores (not Whole Foods or Earth Fare). Oils are like wine, its really a personal preference.

Re: “H&L Asian Market

On a trip to Charleston with my Mom I googled Asian stores and H & L Supermarket came up with good reviews, so we made it one of our stops. We spent almost a $100 in groceries, including a can of coconut juice which I took a sip of before heading out. Well, the coconut juice tasted rancid and spoiled, even the coconut pulp was yellowish - a bad batch of coconuts or something. In any case I went back in to exchange it for a different can. I very cordially and respectfully ( I never get rude or snide, not my style) explained the situation to the manager lady but she obstinately refused to exchange the coconut juice, insinuating that I was lying and then told me to complain to the company that made it. Even after repeatedly letting her know that I truly wanted to be able to write her store a good review and spread good word of mouth to people I meet (hint,hint) she remained stubborn then rudely walked out on me. For their utterly abhorrent customer service, my Mother and I will never ever patronize this business again.

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: “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: “Lowcountry Wine and Spirits

Absolute miserable and rudest owners and employees ever. I was asked to leave the store for being on my cell phone. Didn't even have time for the phone to ring once before the rude employee told me to get off my phone and pointed at a sign saying "no cell phones". Is this even legal? Miserable creatures operate this store. Avoid at all costs. High prices too.
