This place has a great pub feel. Prices were fantastic and food was excellent! This was probably the best fish & chips I have ever had! The prices were great and most everything was under 10 bucks! Our family also enjoyed all the signed dollar bills left at the pub. Staff was really friendly. They also had markers and staplers... More

Stopped in for lunch after a tour and had some delicious food! The fish and chips were fantastic but could have been a little bit flakier. It has a true dive bar atmosphere including dollar bills stapled to all surfaces. Definitely worth a stop if you enjoy pub/sports bar style food.

Had to check it out after Anthony Bourdain went there. Decent selection of craft beer. Didn't try the food. It's hysterical that there are dollar bills all over the wall… Very unique.

Had heard about this place through Trip Advisor prior to coming to Charleston and put it on our to-do list. It is a pretty cool place. Service is not great, had to walk up to the bar to get table service a couple times even though hardly nobody was in there. Ordered beer specials and the fried pickles. It was... More

Stopped in for a quick drink and to hang a $1 bill. We went in on a Monday night and the place was dead, maybe on the weekend would be a better choice.

This place is grungy. Dirty. The food is not good, the service is even worse. There are two female bartenders who blatantly ignore customers. Good place if you just don't care about your surroundings. Cheap drinks.

We were trying to find something a little less pricey with some charm. This place was perfect! Walls are decorated with dollar bills. The staff is super friendly. The food was very good. I had a chicken salad wrap and fries. Delicious. Would definitely recommend!

My wife and I ate here and we likes it a lot. Firstly, the prices are very reasonable 7.50 for a burger and that's 2 parties with fries. The burgers where cooked really well and the bun was amazing and the fries was very very good, but there was to many to eat which is better than to little. All... More

While walking to the Waterfront Park, we spotted The Griffin. Good classic music could be heard, which pulled us in. The atmosphere is unique and something to see. We went to the bar and was immediately greeted, order was taken and order received. There are dollar bills EVERYWHERE! It is so cool to see what people have written on them... More
