Re: “Gerald's Tires

I got four new tires in the Geralds Mt Pleasant location and mentioned to the manager after the tires were installed that my low tire pressure light was on. The manager seemed annoyed and told me that BMW tire pressure indicators come on when the tires are changed. I ended pulling out my own tire gauge and took a reading showing him that the air pressure was only half of the recommended pressure. The manager seemed more annoyed than apologetic. I would not trust them especially with a nicer vehicle. These guys are turn and burn, and don't pay attention to details that could end up damaging your tire or vehicle.

Re: “Edmund's Oast

Should have named the joint - "Oldman's Boast" - to describe the ambiance enjoyed whilst one waits on a rude bartender to rancorously serve a horrible tasting over priced liquid in a warm glass.

Re: “Halls Chophouse

Halls is for dumb tourists only. All of the negative comments on this board are true. The food is average, the prices are high and the four owners are a pain in the butt. Please stay away from this horrible place.

Re: “Gentry Bar & Room

Bring back Sermets, not sure what Gentry is even suppose to be, a whisky bar? restaurant? sports bar? venue for filming Southern Charm? No purpose to this place and the food is mediocre to say the least!

Re: “Hunley's Tavern

If you want to hang on a Saturday night and want good service.. don't go there. Hope the owner gets this.. I've been going there for a long while, this new bartender will not create business..

Re: “Halls Chophouse

12$ liquor drinks you get for $5 dollars everywhere else and average mail order Allen Bros. steaks, yet the tourists flock to this place. All the locals do is laugh. The family has a well deserved reputation as the most freaky, eccentric family in Charleston, which is why the locals stay away.

Re: “Mt. Pleasant Paintball

I had a bachelorette party planned at this facility this past weekend. I had 10+ people coming into Mt. Pleasant for the party. I confirmed the party with them a few weeks ago and then on the morning of, thankfully, I sent another email just following up and received an automated reply that they were permanently closed, the DAY of my party, 2 hours before it was set to start.

They were never going to let me know that they were canceling my group. We would have driven an hour to get there only to be disappointed had I not followed up. My group was very excited about their courses, but thankfully I was able to pull something else together.

Apparently they closed because the owner got arrested for sexual misconduct with a minor. If they ever reopen under the same management, do not support such an establishment. Wait for them to be sold or go somewhere else. I'd give zero stars if able. Completely unprofessional.

Re: “H&L Asian Market

On a trip to Charleston with my Mom I googled Asian stores and H & L Supermarket came up with good reviews, so we made it one of our stops. We spent almost a $100 in groceries, including a can of coconut juice which I took a sip of before heading out. Well, the coconut juice tasted rancid and spoiled, even the coconut pulp was yellowish - a bad batch of coconuts or something. In any case I went back in to exchange it for a different can. I very cordially and respectfully ( I never get rude or snide, not my style) explained the situation to the manager lady but she obstinately refused to exchange the coconut juice, insinuating that I was lying and then told me to complain to the company that made it. Even after repeatedly letting her know that I truly wanted to be able to write her store a good review and spread good word of mouth to people I meet (hint,hint) she remained stubborn then rudely walked out on me. For their utterly abhorrent customer service, my Mother and I will never ever patronize this business again.

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: “Car Pros Plaza

The owner is a total crook. I've posted my experience every where today: I've had to file two BB complaints with Mr. Mulherin's Maaco regarding warranty work done to my vehicle earlier this year. One little mistake turned into six days of wasted PTO, over two hundred dollars worth of rentals on my dime, and my car still hasn't been fixed. This is the third visit and John Mulherin, the owner, just threatened to call the cops on me when I requested a proper loaner car for me and my two year old son. He offered a shop car that smelled like an ashtray, looked unsafe, dirty, worn, the front driver side door didn't even open... and asked that I drive that for three days til my car was ready. This is after he refused to pay $27 a day for a rental that would have been safe and clean to drive for me and my son. I am beyond hurt and aggravated that I cannot be shown proper respect as a paying customer and no one should either. His business practices are abhorrent, I'd take my business elsewhere. Oh yeah, he gave me a rock off his desk that said "Get Over It" and told me I should take the hint. Will do.

Re: “Sip Tap Room

The most amusing sock puppet post was the one that said probably the best beer selection in the city. They might not even have the best selection in their own part of town, let alone the many, MANY other places around Charleston with a better selection (Edmund's Oast, Craft Conundrum, Closed For Business, Gene's, The Barrel, etc).

Re: “Sip Tap Room

So I guess I'm a sucker. I saw the bad reviews and figured it couldn't be THAT bad. And if it was I thought it might be fun to see. It's exactly like the negative reviews say. Sorry. Make changes now, before it's too late!

And c'mon, the 5 star reviews from people who obviously are connected to the place (i.e. have only posted one review or 2 and the other was for the Sip in Mt. P.)? That's so 2007!

Re: “Sip Tap Room

Yeah, agree with everything already said. Three of us planned to eat dinner here two weeks ago, despite the fact that there are no prices on the website menu. Super lame, already indicates you're mainly focused on profit, not longevity. I'm not going to say something bad about someone I don't know, but the owner wasn't very pleased when we told him we were just stopping by for a beer, not dinner. I just threw it back in his face. You can't really talk down to new customers because we made a decision you didn't like. Doesn't work that way. If people are leaving, you should want to know why, be friendly about it, cut the would-be customers a deal, a beer or sweet talk them into staying. What you have to do when you are starting up a new restaurant in this ultra-competitive environment. While we wanted to chill and scope the portions, prices, and vibe, it didn't take us long to check out. I didn't see this ridiculous mustard charge yall are talking about, but I took one look at the place, and said it won't make it to April 2017. Charleston has some pretty high standards, so you gotta play the game I guess. Agree with the identity crisis comments. Look, I hope every business succeeds, it's good for the city, jobs, and the owner, but they're going to have to mix it up, and sweeten up...bigtime.

Re: “Republic Garden and Lounge

Have been to Republic multiple times before but this was the worst experience and I will never go back to this establishment.

Won a VIP table on Instagram for this past Thursday. We arrived and the hostess brought us to our table - enjoyed our drinks throughout the night. When we were ready to leave, server brought us the tab (which is gratuity + taxes when you get "VIP treatment"). I specifically told the server that we would be paying in cash for the bill plus her tip. We ended up giving her at least $100 in cash (our check was for $51) but I wanted to add $20 to her tip so I told her to put that on my debit card. Little did I know that she would be charging me for the entire bill plus the $20.

When I called to complain about this, not only did I have to call 3-4 times before getting any real help, but the management just kept telling that my bank had placed a "hold" on the money and that was why my debit card charge was for $85! At no point has this "Hold" gone back onto my card (I was told it would go back on Monday). All the while, one manager spoke with our server, and our server told her that we all paid her separately in cash (not true, all the cash was left in the book) and she also told her manager that she knew one of us personally (also not true). I was never refunded any of my money and the manager on duty that I spoke with even had the nerve to say that they "comped us a bottle of liquor" insinuating I shouldn't really be complaining - keep in mind, this is part of what you win when you receive "VIP"... I just cannot believe this place. I've never had a worse customer service experience and I will never go back.

Re: “Sip Tap Room

Don't waste your time, this place is terrible. The one star is for the balls it takes to charge $2 for a side of mustard. I shit you not. Won't last 6 months unless they make major changes. To everything.
