Re: “Rappahannock Oyster Bar is so much more than an oyster bar

The tuna melt is seriously the best I have EVER had. You forgot the part about free parking..

Re: “Rappahannock Oyster Bar is so much more than an oyster bar

The review of the ceviche makes me want to go...now. Not many places in Charleston where they can make this simple but delicate dish a winner. And if you are going to have someone "try" an oyster for the first time, take them to an oyster roast, let them start off with some rubbery, over-cooked bivalve, and work their way up to a juicy, almost raw delight! Just be sure they have chili or hot dogs should your attempts to introduce folks to a new dish fail.

Re: “Rappahannock Oyster Bar is so much more than an oyster bar

Went here when they first opened, wasnt that impressed but they still were working with a partial menu, so not a fair review. Like that they have parking, will give it another try soon!

Re: “Workshop offers an around-the-world array of options

That's a pretty apt description, Ima Oldman. Slice was decent, and that was what we intended to get when me and a work associate went, but we did not find it initially as it sits off next to the coffee shop and had no signage. We ended up at Pink Bellies. I had the pork noodle bowl, which was not bad, but small portion for $11. I was still hungry enough to eat two slices when we finally found them. The location reminded me of a college food court. Not a bad concept, but seating was NOT plentiful when we went, we ended up outside eating on some art cube for a table. A brewery was opening up though and that itself may draw me back to try some of the other kitchens.

It's an over-priced hipster food court

Re: “Gentry Bar & Room packs flavor, but lacks focus

All you need to know about this place is it is run by JD Madison (same actor seen sometimes on the Southern Charm tv show). Go to www.charlestoncounty.org and look up the public records under the Clerk of Court section under this guys name. No commentary needed by me.

Re: “Gentry Bar & Room packs flavor, but lacks focus

The name alone speaks of confused identity. Bar & Room? What kind of room? What does one do in said Room? What does it mean?

Re: “Gentry Bar & Room packs flavor, but lacks focus

Agree - we actually really enjoyed our food but felt like we were eating a nice dinner in a sports bar? I had somewhat low expectations for the food though and was pleasantly surprised. The salmon and the Sides of carrots and macaroni were all excellent.

It seems like it is a "Whiles Only" establishment. For every time I walk by I only see Republican type WASPS only!

Re: “Gentry Bar & Room packs flavor, but lacks focus

"A man staring at one of the many television screens suddenly screams out in a calamitous manner." This line could describe dozens of 'new' establishments in Charleston. I know that I am far too quickly becoming an old lady, but I sure do miss the genteel Sermet's. For those ladies and gents that like to lunch, there are fewer and fewer places to go.

Re: “Stella's is a gift from the Greek gods

Spot on review, but the critic overlooked one of the more fantastic features of Stellas, unlike most upscale foodie places here in town, it won't break your budget.

Re: “Stella's is a gift from the Greek gods

I'm sad that every picture is of meat or seafood. Greek cuisine lends itself well to plant-based options. I will have to check out the menu.

Re: “Sorghum & Salt is building a dedicated fanbase one scoop of "olive dirt" at a time

I am new to Charleston and Sorghum & Salt has become my favorite restaurant here so far! I just moved from Tuscaloosa so I was familiar with Tres Jackson's work before. Although Sorghum & Salt is very different from his Tuscaloosa restaurant Epiphany, I am still impressed and satisfied all the same.

Jim, Vanessa doesn't review restaurants for the Post & Courier. She writes exclusively for Charleston City Paper.

even if in different (but the same) publications. perhaps to "upgrade" the first review?

Re: “The Granary offers rich, dense food en masse

just curious.....why would two different p&c writers review the same restaurant in less than 2 weeks?
