After working in the restaurant business for many years, Tommy opened his first restaurant in 1984. He has made his name by becoming one of Charleston's favorite local spots to serve up Lowcountry specialties such as shrimp and grits and fish and chips. Tommy runs the type of family-oriented establishment where people know their children are as welcome as they are. In fact, a children's menu has been specially prepared for "little leprechauns." In the months following Hurricane Hugo, Tommy made numerous trips to Ireland collecting exquisite antique mirrors and authentic Irish memorabilia that adorn his restaurant. He scoured the countryside and brought every pub mirror he could find. He laughs wryly about his massive shipping bills. The results are worth all his effort. The mirrors cast rich reflections, making the restaurant warm and inviting. Some mirrors are ornately detailed while others shimmer with simple elegance. You'll swear you've been transported to a pub shrouded in antiquity in Ireland's rambling countryside.The restaurant would not be complete without the sounds of Ireland. The background music is perfect. In the pub and bar area the "live" sounds of Ireland can be heard every Wednesday through Sunday nights. You can sit back and listen or join in singing an Irish-American sing-along. Tommy says it is wonderful to see whole families getting in on the fun at one table while at another sits a couple on a date and at yet another sits someone's grandparents remembering and laughing.

We've been to Tommy Condon's almost every time we've visited Charleston. It's so convenient when you've been walking around the City Market, then want to stop for lunch. The corned beef & cabbage or the Reubens have always been our stand-bys, and the Fish 'n' Chips too. This time, these items were again ordered. Just seemed like the corned beef... More

The Irish Nacho appetizer is enough for a number of people! Surprisingly spacious with a outdoor deck that is as large as the entire inside. Good place to hang out and have a beer from their extensive beer and drink menu.

We were looking for someplace different for a Sunday brunch. Tommy Condon's looks like an Irish Pub from the outside and it was just past St. Patricks, so we decided to go in. We were very glad we did. The service was fabulous: attentive and friendly. The mimosas were $1 each. My sister had corn beef hash and she loved... More

Good selection of beer, not so many it's overwhelming. Good fried green tomatoes. Nice staff. Free snacks at the back of the bar (you have to look for them) during happy hour.

It was St. Patty’s Day late in the afternoon and stopped here for a beer and to listen to the music. The food smelled good and looked good also. We decided to try a couple of other bars and then return later for some fish and chips. About 8:15 that evening we returned and asked for a table. We got... More

I was very excited to stop here for a pint after finding their website during a search for Charleston area nightlife. After all, it's only 5 days after St. Patrick's Day, and they started the countdown for next year! Yeah! An Irish pub! And they advertise about 20 beers on tap in addition to Black & Tan, Half & Half,... More

If you get thirsty at the end of the day after strolling downtown Charleston, stop by Tommy Condon’s to share a pint with the locals. I felt “at home” here and the bar and wait-staff wer prompt and efficient. A nice spot to enjoy a draft beer (they’ve got Dogfish Head 90 minute on tap!) and relax in comfortable conversation.

Nice atmosphere but the food and service was so-so at best. The patio is a nice place to sit if you go there.
