Re: “Meathouse Butcher Shop business is for sale

The lease is a bit high. No wonder they are quitting. Cannot make it at the location with that much going out the door.

So excited for Farmer's Market season! There is also the Lowcountry Street Grocery, which is a mobile market. And where can we buy that gorgeous poster?

Re: “Pier 41's Southern/Asian fusion offers more than just a great happy hour

I've been a few times and keep going back. The happy hour oyster deal is simply the best deal in Charleston. Hands down. The fish tacos are amazing as well. It's just an appetizer, but I guarantee you'll want to order a another bowl after the first, try the edamame. It's unlike any other edamame anywhere. Delicious! Oh, if you like oyster shooters, try one. They make their own sauce and it's fantastic. I recommend sitting at the bar, adds to the experience watching the team work on preparing the plates.

Re: “Martha Lou's second location will open Wed. April 5

Let me start by saying 'The food was good'. frankly some of the best fried chicken I have had.

However, I had a bad experience at Martha Lou's.The 'Lunch' was $14.00 which includes a meat and three sides. Different options are available on different days. Includes a drink. That is a lot of food.

We arrived at 11:30am and, apparently, the meat had not finished cooking, which meant a longer than anticipated wait. No one ever took our drink orders, and so we had nothing to drink while waiting. When the waitress finally took our order, we got the meat and three sides (Fried Chicken, red rice, baked macaroni, and Lima beans). I then asked for a side piece of cornbread to go with my Lima beans, on the menu for 75 cents. The meal arrived on a styrofoam platter and was very hot and tasty. The sweet tea was Lipton instant tea with lemon. I really do not like lemon in my tea, but the tea was cool and I was thirsty, so I said nothing of it.

When it came time to pay my bill, I was expecting to pay $14.00 plus the 75 cents for my cornbread, plus tax. Instead I was told my bill was $21.00. It seems that at Martha Lou's they include the 3 CHEAPEST sides as part of your $14.00 meal, and then charge you the full price for the most expensive side as an extra cost. So instead of my 75 cent piece of cornbread, I was charged extra $5.50 for the baked macaroni. No offense, but for $5.50 I would expect a much larger portion of macaroni than the two spoon fulls you get.

That said, I am willing to try the new location, because, as I said, the food was very good. I will not be ordering cornbread though :-)

Re: “The Tides Hotel wins restaurant bid for Folly Beach Fishing Pier

This must be one of the reasons the corrupted Folly Beach City Council voted to prohibit alcohol on the beach. Does anyone know what sort of alcohol revenue increase Avocet Properties has generated since those votes were influenced? Tsk, tsk...

Re: “Constantly asking restaurants to give freebies to charities has got to stop

I really agree with this article. One of the reasons we started GiftieApp.com was to allow restaurants to refer these requests our way.

Re: “Prepare to say "Arrivederci" to La Morra Pizzeria

Very bummed about this, wish they were staying. As someone who relocated here from SoCal, you are going to miss Charleston...
