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

It looked like a giant slurppy place. A lot of different colored frozen drinks and a lot of flavors. Not a place that really interested me.

My boyfriend and I went to Charleston to celebrate our anniversary, and decided to go bar hopping one night. Not much to choose from, and we walked past wet willies. I noticed a sign that said dress code, and had to look. We fit the code, and walked in. The atmosphere was pleasant, live music was great. Then we ordered... More

So so, you're average bar, with raging partiers. Lots of smoothy drinks to choose from. Not bad, but not great.
