Be careful at this place. Very strong daiquiris. Great for causal drinks though, Area opened in back with couches

We have never been to a Wet Willie's before so it was an interesting place to stop. Drinks were good so we ordered some appitizers. Everything we ordered was the special of the day and it took a long time for our food to come. It was tasty but messy and no one brought us silverware. It was the middle... More

A plethora of adult cocktails and a great bartender. It was an easy way to cool off on a hot day; remember that you technically aren't supposed to walk on the street with these...but we did and didn't have an issue.

When it's hot and humid, this is a great place to get an icy beverage and cool off. It was a life saver. We went at an off time. Staff was nice and attentive.

I was visiting Charleston with a group of 4 people in their late 20s. We were met by a friendly bouncer at the door checking our IDs. He set the mood positively by joking with us and being welcoming. We each ordered different frozen drinks and enjoyed them all. The atmosphere of this bar is not overly fancy but it... More

When it is hot in Charleston this is a great place to cool off. They specialize in frozen drinks, and they are tasty and quick to cool you off. The atmosphere is somewhat dive like, but we weren't expecting more. We went twice while we were visiting Charleston. Both times the bar was not particularly busy, but we still had... More

My wife and I stopped in to cool off with a couple of drinks. We also had some nachos. They were terrific. Excellent drinks. The bartender was very friendly. So good, we went back the next day and the service was even better. I would definitely recommend a visit if you like frozen drinks.

I've been to a couple of Wet Willie's and this by far was the worst one. It wasn't anything like the one in Charlotte or Myrtle Beach. I expected a lot more, but was highly disappointed.

We used to stop in here and grab a couple slushies. They're delicious and some are made with pure grain alcohol. You definitely get your money's worth if you're looking to catch a buzz. You can also mix and match (my favorite was the banana with pina colada and strawberry). Also, you get to keep the cups and I'm not... More
