Re: “Fresh seafood with a side of picturesque

I am confused, why no mention of Water's Edge?

Charleston Receipts is also available on Amazon for $14.

Re: “Restaurants worth finding

The Glass Onion is indeed excellent. However, I have to disagree with your praise for the Sunflower Cafe. I had high hopes for this restaurant but have been disappointed on my two visits. The beignets were dry and cold, my omelette was over cooked. Other diners' food was OK, but really just OK. The service was friendly but not very attentive or fast. There are better places to eat breakfast, like Acme Cantina on The Isle of Palms.

Re: “Fresh seafood with a side of picturesque

Have you been to the Wreck? We'd be interested in hearing about your experience. Our food critic has had positive experiences and feels good about recommending it.

The biggest problem with the Wreck is being overhyped in tourist pubs. Don't go expecting more than what Robert says: "low-key, bare-bones place" with simple fried and grilled seafood choices -- served on paper plates, no less.

Re: “Fresh seafood with a side of picturesque

Read the article with interest. We have been to red's, Vickery's, and Shem Creek B&G, all were very good. The Wreck drew some interest because we had not heard of it. The reviews in the City Paper were another story, not much in the way of good, very negative overall. How could this place be featured as a 'not to miss'?????? When you do this type of misleading article, your credibility suffers. A lot.

Re: “Craft Brew Bonanza

Don't overlook Jaime and David's other accomplishments. They were the driving force behind the Pop the Cap movement. They made people aware of the progress of the Bill and coordinated an aggressive letter and email campaign to our Representatives. Without them, I truly believe we would not have this article at all.
Currently they are pushing a Bill that will place Breweries on equal footing with Vineyards and Distillarys. If successful, we will soon be able to have tastings at Breweries and buy beer direct. These are privledges the other alcohol producers currently are able to exercise.
Again, Jaime and David, Good Job! I will raise a DFH 90 Minute in your honor!

Re: “Craft Brew Bonanza

Don't forget Laura Alberts! Located on Daniel Island, they're still in the city of Charleston! This shop packs a punch with vintage beer, a 6-tap growler station (they fill any growler) and tons of bottles. Check out the review of their latest monthly beer dinner with Sierra Nevada, it makes my mouth water!…

I think they're having a Victory beer dinner coming up soon!

Check them out at their website:

Re: “Restaurants worth finding

The Glass Onion is a must for anyone who wants to experience the bounty of the Lowcountry: local collard greens, Sea Island red peas, triggerfish, and the best fried chicken livers in town! Plus you can enjoy a Coast Hop Art there too!
