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 husband and 2 others at our table ordered the All You Can Eat Fish-n-Chips on a Friday. What a joke. After they finished their first plate (standard amount of fries + 2 filets), they each asked for more. Server came out with 1 plate (!) with 3 filets on it for them to share. Okaaay...? They ate those and... More

On our visit to Charleston we were advised to take in Tommy Condon's Pub for good food and great entertainment. We did......and that is what we got! The prime rib special was tasty and plentiful but the entertainment with the Irish folk singer on the guitar (and a guest violinist) really made the evening special. A "must" place to try... More

Your typical sports bar & food. Service and food was good. It provides a comfortable place to eat, but I would not say that it is anything special. If you are looking for a place to get good food, service and sports tv this is the place.

With so many other great restaurants in Charleston I'd save this spoke for a cold pint and sit in the outside patio. Prompt service easy location in the middle of everything.

We had shrimp and grits at another restaurant that was more well known but the shrimp and grits at Tommy Condon's was the best. Very friendly casual atmosphere which was just what we were looking for on our last night of 5 in Charleston. Cant go wrong dining here - something for everyone's taste and a reasonable price

we were staying at the hotel next door so this was a convenient dinner. Enid. That said, I ordered the corned beef and cabbage and it was marginal at best....what the heck?!?! This is an Irish pub! Oh well, the bartender was awesome and we enjoyed ourselves. And it was a trip back in time as I ate dinner here... More

..........A pint of Guinness, shepherd's pie and fried green tomatoes in one sitting. The comforting familiarity of a dark wooden bar, friendly bartenders and above average food for a pub. It deserves mention that the menu has some locals favorites that are not your typical Irish Pub fare. With a visit.....

Fun place to grab a drink and sit with friends! We enjoyed our drinks- nothing special but fun! The service was spotty... we had 4 different servers. I am sure there are better bars in Charleston but we truly stumbled upon this one!

Our last visit here was disappointing. New manager who wouldn't come over to the table and discuss our disappointment. Server was ok and brought us a message back from the manager, which I thought was lame. Husband loves a good reuben ... and this Tommy's had one. Last time the reuben was mostly bread ... the vibe of the place... More
