Re: “Long Island Cafe

DO NOT PAY WITH CASH at this restaurant. I was just shorted by $13.31 (party of three) ... Sam, our waiter, hoped I didnt notice .... but when you give $100 cash you count your change ... mistakes happen, so I brought it politely to his attention .... Sam said hed rectify the mistake .... second time I was shorted $3.31 .... Disgusting!!!! Brought the matter to the attention of the management .... didnt seem to concerned about the fraudulent behaviour of their server .... offered to give me the $3.31 back ... kidding me, right? Totally disgusted. Check your bill, check your change, especially if Sam is your server. DO NOT PAY with CASH at this restaurant .... you will probably get short changed.
Once a mistake .... twice ... what kind of fool do you take me for??????

Re: “RB's Seafood

When we visit Charleston RB's our my favorite place to eat - Shrimp and Grits. They are the best!. Prices are reasonable. Service has always been good. Great location to just hang out and watch the dolphins play or walk around Shem Creek.

Re: “The Boathouse at Breach Inlet

What a horrible experience. We were in SC on vacation, and made a reservation for the Boathouse. My wife and myself, along with our two daughters, aged 13 and 11, we're very excited about the meal, as my wife and I had been there many years ago on a getaway weekend, and remembered it fondly as a neat place, and a restaurant offering fine food.

We arrived on time, and were sat at a table in the middle of the main dining room. A man and woman with their three-year-old daughter were seated against the windows facing the water, and their child screamed for the first 30 minutes of the meal. We said nothing, and The parents produced an iPad for the child to watch, making sure the volume was turned all the way up. We let this go on for maybe 10 minutes or so, until it became unbearable. My wife, who was also pregnant, very politely walked over and asked the mother of the child if they would be so kind as to turn down the volume of the iPad. The mother huffed and puffed, and reluctantly turned down the volume. She then proceeded to look over at our table and told us to "shut the f"&) up, my child is three, how dare us." I looked over and said "how dare you speak that way in front of my children," where as the husband of this foul woman looked at me and told me to "back off."

We added a photo to show what it was like, right before this incident happened. As you can see, there is the Mother, on her phone, daughter LAYING DOWN on the booth, with her precious iPad blasting a movie and as bright as can be, while my Daughters continue to smile, excited to eat their meal!

Well, at this point we were ready to leave, as our night had been ruined. The bartender manager was very friendly, offering us his sincere apologies and to comp the meal. We refused, as at that point it was not the fault of the establishment. Now, as I said, this initial event was not the restaurant's fault, but what happens next is the issue that makes this place not even worthy of one star. As I was signing the bill, and after enduring additional abuse at the hands of these foul people, and watching the mother carry on as loudly as possible, singing children's songs with the young girl and laughing and making a fool of herself, all while sucking down their third drink in 20 minutes each, the actual head manager came over and consoled the foul people for their bad experience! He coddled these "regulars", as he followed me out, telling me to "calm down", and basically inferring that this issue was my fault!

All I did was act as any father should, and acting as any father would, I stood up for my children, as we don't speak that way in front of them, and nor should anyone else. I never used foul language, never raised my voice, never sunk to their level, but still, we we're the ones left leaving feeling as if WE did something wrong. These people should have been asked to leave, after using foul language in front of two young girls, berating a family trying to enjoy a meal, and basically telling us our opinion means nothing. They should have at least been moved, especially after the bar manager offered to pay for our meal, as he knew without a doubt that this issue was most DEFINITELY not a result of anything that we did. How dare that manager! He neither saw the event, nor asked any staff member a question, he just made assumptions and partnered with the wrong side.

We will never eat here again, nor should anyone else!

Re: “Hyman's Seafood

We are from Michigan and whenever our travels take us to Charleston, Hyman's is a regular stop. The food and service have always been great. Looking forward to our next visit.

Re: “Red's Ice House Seabrook

Interesting to see such a 180 degree difference in the ratings....and experiences. The fact that it is alllllll the way over on Seabrook Is. means my chances of going all the way from Summerville are slim and none.

Re: “Shem Creek Bar and Grill

"This seafood restaurant boasts two bar areas — an inside bar shaped like the bow of a boat with three beers on tap, and an oyster bar toward the back, decorated with fishing gear."

Actually, it has three bars. The third is the only dock bar on Shem Creek (as in, it's built on pilings over the creek).

This place has been in business in 1982. The food is good, including the steaks, but service can be a inconsistent.

Re: “Red's Ice House Seabrook

My wife and I went to the beach with our dog. As we left we wondered if Red's was dog friendly. They were more than dog friendly, they gave us a great seat on the deck and brought our big dog a bowl of water. Almost every customer and server stopped by our table to pay him some attention.

The service and food were really good and the staff were super friendly.

We've been back twice since then for the all-you-can-eat crab legs and loved it. The wait during summer was pretty bad (it never crossed my mind that it was tourist season until we got there), during the off-season we never had to wait for a table.

Comparing the Seabrook location to the Mt Pleasant location it's hard to believe it's the same restaurant, the vibe is so different. The Mt Pleasant Red's is much more "rustic" and like a bar that happens to serve seafood. If that's your thing great, I prefer the more open and airy Seabrook location for it's laid back atmosphere. It's mid July as I write this and I can hardly wait for September, when I plan to be back at Red's.

Re: “Red's Ice House Seabrook

Our meal was so horrible that I cannot even rate it with 1 star. Meal took 40 minutes to arrive at the table, food was ice cold. Burger arrived 10 minutes later - cooked well done vs med rare as ordered. The lettuce in the grilled tuna salad was rancid and rotting. Manager comped entree portion of the meal - but worse was the attitude - she really did not care. I'm local and posting on every blog I can find.

Re: “Roadside Seafood

absolutely beautiful food and well prepared my only caveat is a little salty but i got everything fried so thats probably my problem.

Re: “Long Island Cafe

We have often visited over quite a few years. I can say,that fir the past 3.5 years,there has been zero disappointment . All ordered items were just exquisite . Matters not if fried,broiled,etc.,they know what they are doing. The salads are first class too,of course. I particularly love the crab cakes. Reservations are smart on weekends.

Re: “The Islander

Rex: Perhaps before you attempt to criticize a restaurant, it would be nice to either learn proper language skills and English writing skills, or possibly have someone with some education spell check and work check your posts. You appear to be an ignorant clod, which will also reflect on your opinions of an eatery.

Re: “The Islander
