Re: “Jimbo's Rock Lounge

I was there for the Badd Kitty Lingerie Masquerade.. and had a blast! two very enthusiastic thumbs up... Fred Krugrr was a bad ass D.J., Jimbo was bartending himself, and there was just a lot really cool, fun people.. for a change, in west ashley anyway; usually not my fav scene or people out there. but i'm glad i went, it was ALL REALLY GOOD TIMES:)

Re: “Charleston Music Hall

This will be a great show! Seen her on stage with Clay Aiken for the past 8 years and she is fabulous. Wish I was in town to go the show.

Re: “Queen Anne's Revenge

I have never, ever had a bad meal here, and I eat here semi-frequently. I have always experienced the friendliest service here - is it slow at times - sure, but this place gets busy, so be patient. I would say come here for lunch or dinner because that is their specialty. The steak and seafood dishes are fantastic. Brunch is not bad but I think they're still getting their groove for brunch. Honestly - dinner here is where it's at. Steak tips with mushrooms is to die for - and no, I don't work at Queen Anne's - nor do I personally know anyone who does. With French and Italian parents, I know good food and Queen Anne's has it.

Re: “Red Drum

I love Sunday Brunch. It is my favorite meal. I literally look forward to it every week. I have tried tons of brunch places in town. For the longest time Moe's was my hands down favorite (RIP). Triangle was my favorite party brunch place (the food...meh) and had great service.

Red Drum...surpasses them all. The food is fantastic and includes all the choices you would want from traditional to southern to unique (for Charleston). The bartender is always on top of your drink, and they have the most generous mimosas around. I also really like that the guys get their in a pint glass so they can still feel manly.
Get the fork and knife tacos...mmmmm.

If you haven't tried it for brunch - you are missing out.

Re: “The Ice House

Although I haven't been recently, I know from friends that the Icehouse has always stayed true to form with great drinks, great service, and great people. I look forward to going up there soon to try their brunch, which my best friend Carroll raves about. See ya then, Woody! --Nina

Re: “Montreux Bar and Grill

This is the best bar in Summerville. Hands down. Usually people that complain about watered down drinks are the same people that never tip. Nothing's ever good enough. You are a sad breed of human. If you can't tip, stay home. If you don't like Montreux, no one asked you to go there anyway. There are plenty of loyal patrons that will continue to frequent this place because they are good people and serve quality food along with a great selection of beers and liquors. If you have a problem with any of the security there, it's because you're probably a drunk idiot. And I like to see you call them that to their faces.

Re: “Swamp Fox Restaurant & Bar

I have been to a lot of the new restaurants in town, but my wife and I went back to one that we have not been to in a long time. The Swamp Fox in the Francis Marion hotel is a true classic. We took advantage of Restaurant Weeks 3 for $30 menu. WOW were we impressed. We started with fried green tomatoes that were cooked to perfection. The goat cheese and pepper jelly that were paired with the tomato made me want to have it for the whole meal, not just for a starter. Than we moved on to some of the best flounder we have had in a while. It had just the right amount of spicy peach glaze on a crunchy light panko breading. Finally, we finished with the apple tart with amazing caramel sauce. With the food tasting this great and the incredible atmosphere of the Francis Marion hotel and view of the square, not only will we be back, but I think I might just become a regular!

Re: “Art's Bar & Grill

I've eaten there and it's honestly good and the best evening is when any night "Baby Fat" is rocking the joint. They are excellent musicians.

Re: “Home Team BBQ

The food is delicious but I really go for the musicians entertainment. Musicians I've not seen in years appear here and that's a treat for me and the friends I see there. Last time I was there Dupree Wall and singer Momma Wall were performing and what a treat. Thanks

Re: “The Ice House

Hello Danica,
My name is Woody. I am the owner of the Icehouse. I would like to inform you that you should not complain about an $18 tab you did not pay! After complaining about not being able to pay my bartender took care of that for you. I am sorry we were so nice to you. If there is anything i could take back, I would love to have charged you more. Thanks for your kind words!

Re: “Hominy Grill

The shrimp and grits are the best in Charleston (which means the best anywhere, really). The Cobb salad and the Chicken Ranch salad (a frequent special with fresh corn, fried green tomatoes, chicken, and a home made ranch dressing with a punch) are long-time favorites. Every "vegetable" (sides, really) on the blackboard is fresh, local, home-made and amazing. The fried green tomato BLT rocks. And how does a southern chef make such awesome french fries and huevos rancheros? Oh, and did I mention the fried chicken? The food is always top-notch and consistent. The service is knowledgeable and friendly. And since they've added more enclosed space, the wait is more tolerable (shorter and with cocktails!), the restrooms easier (two instead of one...no line), and they have a bartender cranking out creative southern-based adult beverages. Rock on, Hominy Grill.

Re: “Famous Joe's Bar & Grill

Great wings, burgers, fries, and, grilled chicken sandwich. The wings are huge and perfectly cooked. The cook comes out and asks if everything is to your satisfaction. They have 4 pool tables, karaoke, and a friendly atmosphere. Nice Bar

Re: “HŌM

Don't know what you're talking about yumyum. You work/own one of the other burger shops in town? Talk about a big waste of money. I've never been able to fill up at burger babies for less than $15.

The burgers at HoM are amazing! Made with sirloin, short rib, and brisket meat, and you're just making claims it's frozen? Unique menu, fries, onion rings are delicious.

24 oz of Genese Cream Ale for $4.50. You could walk next door to Midtown or some other college frat bar and pay that for a Miller Lite bottle or some other weak domestic. Plus HoM has a much better selection.

Not saying you couldn't find a cheaper meal elsewhere, but whenever I'm at a restaurant thinking about having their burger, I consider that I'll just get one at HoM at some point during the week.

I've found it to be a great new spot to eat and love playing ping pong. Much more unique than just another sports bar, with nothing to offer in food and beer selections. And I'm NOT some owner or staff at HoM trying to post a review like yumyum to help their own cause. Worst place in town? Gimme a break... I like burgers from Moe's, Rue de Jean, and HoM. Those are the best in town. Pretty much every burger place is "ok" ... Not gonna pay $4 for a slider.
