Re: “The Rarebit

My wife and I have been to this place 3 times in the last 6 weeks. The food was really good. The prices for downtown cannot be beat for the amount of food you get. The only problem we have had is with getting the waitress to refill the water glass. In the 3 visits we made they never refilled the glasses. I will continue to visit this restaurant for the food and hope I can get the waitress to step up the level of service.

Re: “The Macintosh

I tried the Macintosh during Restaurant Week 2013 and thought everything was really well done. The Orange Ghost and Honey Badger cocktails were inventive without being precious, and the server was professional and enthusiastic. The portion sizes were surprisingly large for a 3/$30 menu. I had a beautiful carrot salad and the seasonal vegetable plate, which was even better the next day.

Re: “Heart Woodfire Kitchen

I really adore the food at this place; it's comforting and unpretentious but there's enough imagination in it to keep things interesting. It's true that the service isn't especially smooth, but it's never detracted from my experiences and the waitstaff is always, at least, pleasant. The vegetable stew is one of my favorite things to eat in Charleston.

Re: “North Charleston Picture House

You'll see a wide variety of films here. Wierd, amazing and most interesting locally produces shoestring budget independent stuff. You can make a movie for 5 thousand bucks now and often that's better than some of what the studios grind out. You'll never know if you don't come to the show.

Re: “Park Pizza Co.

We order Park Pizza about 1-2x a month. We would order it more if we weren't trying to watch our spending. That being said, when the pizza arrives to our front door (they deliver to Hanahan folks!) we are always thrilled with the results. My husband always has the same thing every time. He throws together a pizza with jalapenos and bbq pork that he swears is phenom. I usually go with the pizza of the month which never fails to disappoint. The combos there are so good that I rarely go to the regular menu pizzas but when I do, again I am pleased with the variety and flavor combos that most other pizza joints would shy away from. I will say that the Partridge in a Pear Tree (Cheddar, Mozzerlla, Chicken Sausage, Pear Preserves, Sauteed Onions, Dates...sounds crazy, right..crazy good is more like it!) from December's Pizza of the Month is my all-time fave and I cry on Jan 1st not because another year has passed but because I can no longer get that pizza. ( I tried...they don't have the stuff anymore.) In any event, when ordering keep an open mind and branch out from the pepperoni and transcend into Thai , Indian, Crawford or even She-Crab when ordering pizza. You'll be pleasantly surprised and back for more.

Re: “Early Bird Diner

We loved the Early Bird Diner before it ever appeared on any Dive show. What I love is how the service and food has stayed the same despite the lines that now plague the sidewalk in the morning. We've come to discover however that Wintertime is a great time to come back to the Bird since the lines are diminished now that tourists have flocked back home. For us the chicken and waffles and Curry Breakfast Eggs are all time faves. Their taters, biscuits and red pepper jelly are also delicious. Its easy to see that love goes into every bite and this stuff truly is made fresh and with some clever twists. We love the specials too when the mood hits, but its hard to steer us away from those mainstays. The special ice cream flavors are so good that we sometimes get ice cream at brunch! And for folks that think the Early Bird opens early...oh does not. Check the weekend times and then head on over. Early Bird is only a name and not a time indicator of when service starts..but when it does, we are always pleased and never disappointed.

Re: “Moose's Famous BBQ

Moose's moved to Summerville and we couldn't be happier. We are also happy to see the buffet is still alive and well at Moose's after the move. The pulled pork is moist and full of smoke, and they do a good job of picking out the fat..all of which we love. If you don't smell smoke or see a wood pile, its time to move to another BBQ place. The brisket is also delicious, coming from someone who had a whole lot of brisket in Texas where its an art form. I also see things like Pork Loin that you don't expect but are delighted when offered on a buffet. The cobbler does leave something to be desired but the Banana Pudding hits the mark. Sides aren't the best I've had in town...Home Team has beat them by a mile in that area, but for the price and the drive, we make it regularly from the peninsula and were so thrilled that we don't have to drive to Monck's Corner anymore! Keep up the great work!

Re: “Back Home Bar & Grill

First things first: this is a BAR with a menu, a sports bar more specifically. Nothing wrong with that, but I somehow missed that when choosing a meet-up place for my family and parents. And evidently they didn't offer us any of their drugs. Rip-off! ;-) Just kidding.

That being said, the waitress was very friendly, it wasn't loud, it is smoke free (yay, Charleston!) and the food (while slow because we were the only ones eating) was very good and very reasonable. Fish Po' Boy, Lobster Roll, Cheese steak and the Pepperoni Rolls were all super tasty. A definite winner for a casual sports bar.

Re: “The Wreck of the Richard and Charlene

I've lived here for 15 years and my partner is a native Charlestonian. Despite what the review previous to mine says, locals *do* eat at The Wreck because, for what it is, The Wreck is excellent. It's not FIG or McCrady's, but it is impeccably fresh seafood prepared well and served in an unpretentious environment.

Yeah the owner is a grumpy old man until you get to know him, and nearly all the staff are his relatives. They do their own thing and will not cater to you. That's part of the charm. If it's not your style, don't go. But if you do go, don't bitch about it because you have been warned.

Re: “Pawley's Front Porch

Great specialty burgers prepared with quality beef are the main attraction. The wide and creative selection of toppings makes up for minimal seasoning used in the nice, thick cooked-to-order patties. Table service during a recent luchtime visit was excellent, very attentive, and as an added bonus - extremely attractive. Comfortable interior decor and bar layout with some inviting outside tables for fair weather days. Hand cut fries were a little soggy and only lukewarm, otherwise Pawley's would receive all 5 stars. So many neighborhood bar and grills in Mount Pleasant totally miss the very basics of proper service, good food, cold beer, and a friendly atmosphere, but Pawley's is an example of how things should be done.

Re: “Crave Kitchen & Cocktails

My go to brunch location! There are a number of great options for brunch, great sides, great drinks. Always dependable. The service some times isn't fantastic, which is the only thing that keeps me from giving 5-stars. I would always recommend Crave, especially for brunch.

Re: “Caroline’s Market & Catering

Love the variety of Caroline's Market! There are a few staples that my family loves. We always get the Chicken Tetrazini for when my daughter is finished with soccer practice. We love her lemon bars and chocolate cookies. And I have used her for catering several times. From my son's 6th birthday party (backyard barbeque) to my sister's wedding shower (light h'ors d'ovres). She is so good at what she does and is so easy to work with!!

Re: “Marina Variety Store

Good, simple food in a diner atmosphere. No frills and has the decor of a late 70's Dennys. But the food is Okay, and interesting menu items, like alligator with grits. If you go on weekend mornings, you will see nothing but locals, lots of handshakes, old blue hairs and the southern church crowd. It is a step back in time.

Re: “The Lot

Despite the negative reviews, my husband and I decided to try this place out. It was good as was the service. We tried the sausage for an appetizer ($8) my husband had the pork belly ($11) and I had their soup special ($8) which was butternut squash with shrimp-I was disappointed that they didn't let me know it would be served cold but it was still good. The menu that day (Friday) had really good looking stuff. We will go back for sure! Oh, and their prices are definitely not expensive for dinner. We had a couple of beers each and I had a glass of wine. With tip our bill was about $50. Oh and Matt Lee (Lee Brothers) was there, wonder what he thought...

Re: “Autobanh Food Truck

Super Delicious! Crispy chicken sandwich a must! Their spring shrimp rolls w/peanut sauce are extreme fresh and yummy! Be sure to quench your thirst w/their teas :) My sandwich was made very mild spice due to Spice Shyness. *Perfect*

Re: “Black Bean Co.

Pretty darn good. And they deliver! The sides are inconsistant but the wraps are good. They use some sort of cubed up deli meat as their protiens and at first it can be a little off putting if you're expecting fresher meat but I have grown to like it. The dif kinds of tofu are what I normally go for anyway and they are great.
Could be a little less pricey but I'll deal.

Re: “Bon Banh Mi

I've been to Bon Banh Mi three times so far. Consistently tasty every time. I prefer the tacos over the sandwich
