Description: 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.

My friends and I went for brunch because they have an awesome deal of $1 mimosas! So of course we ordered so many. The food is normal bar food but it kept up satisfied! What we loved the best was the service. Our waitress was the sweetest young girl. She's a student at the College of Charleston and I believe... More

We came in on a cold and rainy night and the corned beef and cabbage just his the spot. My husband got the Sheppard's pie and loved it! The beer selection is good and the atmosphere is great.

My husband and I ate lunch at Tommy Condon's for the first time last week as it was right across the street from our hotel (French Quarter Inn) and came highly recommended. I read the description for their cheese dip and warm pretzels and was SOLD. I got that and a salad, and called it a day. One of the... More

This is a great place for a quick meal and a drink. The menu is basic pub fare with an Irish slant. Live Irish music and friendly service. We were casually dressed, but some were some were in suits and dresses others in jeans etc. Great location for shopping and bar hopping. Definitely recommend.

Convenient location and good service, but the food is just adequate. Irish fare and good ale in Charleston's Historic District.

Stopped in for dinner on Thanksgiving evening after just arriving in Charleston. Tommy's was the very first place I ate when visiting Charleston for the first time nearly 19 years ago and I still have the pilsner to prove it(I bought it). A great opportunity to go back and remember my first experience as well as sharing a new one... More

Great stop for lunch or drinks especially if you are staying at the wonderful French Quarter Inn. We had She Crab soup and wedge salads for lunch. Both were very delicious and great service. Very comfortable atmosphere. We always stop here!

We ate here several times as it was a quick walk across the street from our hotel. Sandwiches are large and tasty. Service is prompt and friendly. Prices are reasonable.

My wife and I ate here twice during our four days in Charleston. Dinner then lunch. Nothing spectacular, just good pub food and beer. I can live without the sports tv's - volume was a bit much. Servers were pleasant and prompt. Food was hot and good portions.
