The appearance outside and in made me expect a good time and experience. I had fish and it was only so-so. The taste of fish was okay, but seasoning was minimal. The server was unattentive but covered the basic needs. I search for non-chain restaurants when I travel and usually have good success. This is one place that I don't... More

The food was good. It was very expensive though. It was also very hot in there. I probably wouldn't go there again because I paid too much.

I have been here before and usually really enjoy, but it just wasn't as good as usual. Pork chop was just "ok" chocolate brownie dessert was not good at all. Waitress offer to box it to go since we had only a couple of bites, when we commented we didn't care for it, she just said ok and carried it... More

We ate in the bar, food was first rate and our server(Danielle) was exceptional. Very attentive and knew menu very well. Made great suggestions. We will dine there more in the future.

We have been to Charleston's many times and usually get in without a wait. The food is always good. I sometimes wonder why we don't go more, but then again we like to try a lot of different places. Having several local beers on tap is also nice, but it is not unheard of for a restaurant/bar to have more... More

I thought for sure they would than take it off my bill , since everyone else had finished eating and that it was so bad , but did... More

Wonderful folks with a great menu for lunch or dinner! We go there often and always have a wonderful event. Welcoming and well trained staff make you feel comfortable with a smile a suggestion on the days specials and an excellent sense of timing for taking care of needed items or just holding back during the conversation. The SHRIMPCARGOT is... More

Cooked to perfection with a light BBQ glaze, they were great. The REAL mash potatoes were light and had small pieces of potato within them. Finally the smokey BBQ baked beans were not personally my favorite. They were a bit too smokey for me. I ate in the bar area and it was nice. The service was attentive but not... More

Strange experience. I had an old giftcard so I stopped in to see if was still good. The hostess sent me to the bartender, who checked and advised that it was still valid. So I remained seated at the bar and the bartender walked away. After a few minutes I guess he noticed me still sitting there waiting for service... More

I went to the restaurant a few years ago and did not like it since they had MSG in their food. I think things have improved. Food was fresh (no MSG), waitress was knowledgeable and I would definitely go back.
