Cool place for the game

Fun casual spot with cold beer, good friendly atmosphere and okay pub fare. We enjoyed our stop there. We usually go to finer dinning places when we get downtown, but this was a quick bite before a meeting and sports played a role.

Mac's Pub & Grub was actually my husband's pick, and I'll have to say I wasn't too excited, but man oh man, the food proved me wrong. We had the Irish nachos and they were killer! My buffalo chicken wrap was honestly one of the best wraps I had ever had! It's for sure a good spot to watch sports,... More

Stopped in after finding aw shucks closed. Had a good ale and fish n chips while listening to the rather loud (for the sparsely populated space) country music.

The service was good, but slow night not many people there. Not much else to say, Trip adviser requires 100 words.

We were looking for a good beer before boarding the cruise ship and leaving Charleston. Just by chance I saw their sign and took a chance. GREAT BEER and tried fried Pickles for the first time. What a great combo and a great place to discover.

Came in for lunch and to watch football with a group of friends while on vacation. Laid back atmosphere with great food. Our waitress was awesome, especially considering our group kept growing as more friends showed up to join as the afternoon went on. The Irish nachos were very good. Not made with tortillas, but homemade chips!

Was walking around the market and decided to get some lunch. There are a lot of real,fancy places in the area but we wanted somewhere off the tourist "beat" that served honest to goodness great value food and beer. Well we were not disappointed.

They have many TV's to see your favorite team. Right near the market on East Bay Street. Great beer specials, too. We have always had good service and last Saturday they had a packed house. We got there early for our TN game and had good service all night. Good fried pickles!

Stopped in and watched the first half of the UGA vs. Lousiana Monroe game while in Charleston. The atmosphere was great with plenty of TV's to see the game in multiple places. The Irish Nachos were fantastic!
