This is a good place to take a break from from Charleston and have a frosty drink. There's a wide variety available in both alcoholic and non-alcoholic varieties. If you go in the evening when it's busy there's plenty of entertainment available both inside and outside.

The drinks are what you come for and they are great! They will make any combination you want and have some good non-alcoholic choices as well. The food is good, basically typical bar food, but better tasting than many! The server was very personable, he made the experience!

Very surprised at how awesome the food was!! I had the shrimp po boy and we found out all of their sauces are house made.

Typical sticky floor college bar hangout. Great place to get drunk and stupid (if you're 21). Everyone else should just walk in during the afternoon heat, try one of their slushie flavors (Call a Cab is their specialty - loaded with booze!!). Cool off, finish your drink, then bail.

Had a lunch here on a busy Saturday. Do not go here if you are expecting anything remotely sophisticated... Plastic cutlery and plastic cups and plates. We had a very good Manhattan and Pins colada, very reasonably priced. The southern fried shrimp with pineapple coleslaw was excellent. However only order the nachos if you are really hungry. A massive plate... More

This is a good place if you want quick, decent, cheaper food & drinks. Make drinks pretty strong - making them worth the money! Pretty neat environment with a wall of pre-made drinks. Was a good choice while we were out & about & just wanted a bite of food & a strong drink!

I ordered a hamburger and it was burnt on the outside but rare inside. They did have good drinks and nice servers.

Great concept of mix and match frozen drinks set up similar to a frozen yogurt place but with no self serve :( Amazing chips and questions dip brought to the table and nice happy hour options. Perfect choice for a cold drink with a kick on a hot charleston day.
