Re: “Sermet's provides James Islanders a comfortable dining outlet

..."overworked salad"

"It's inexpensive"...
($24 for 3 scallops....$19 for 3 bites of tenderloin)

"the first bite tasted like I was eating a sauted orange rind. "

"The sauce was the exact same flavor as Papa John's pizza sauce."


..."were so salty that I was grateful that there were only three of them"

..." suffered the misfortune of being seasoned with a heavy hand. The risotto, conversely, was not salted enough and still possessed the telltale crunch of being under-cooked. "


"Unfortunately, the only flavor that I could taste was the smoky grill grates "

"The first bite wasn't so bad, but after forkful number three I was perfectly fine with foregoing the meat to pick at the pure."

"They are barely as good as they need to be to attract an audience."

...." Sermet's food is fine. Not excellent and not awful. Just fine."

"I've realized that the food is just fine and that's actually fine."

SO...although there were a few positive notes on the dishes at Sermet's (i.e. the eggplant) , I can't help but Wonder how this critical overall review still allows this restaurant to be rated as "just fine" It seems to imply that James Islanders less discerning palates will be OK with this kind Of "mediocre" fare. Is it possible Sermet's is just kind of getting a pass just for being around for so long downtown?

Ultimately I can't imagine how this Cuisine will consistently appeal to the overall demographic of James Island.

Time will tell.

Re: “Lewis Barbecue's brisket will make you moan

All aboard the BBQ train , which has recently rolled into Charleston with much hype and some pundits calling Charleston the "future of BBQ".

please! this restaurant seems to offer a few very tasty pieces of meat at ridiculous prices, and pretty much everything else is forgettable ( even the pictures of the food are unappealing ) and yet still receives a review with orgasmic rhetoric

I guess with enough hype you can sell anything for a short period of time , but in the end hype will always lose out to a good quality product at a reasonable price.

Orgasmic imagery notwithstanding.
