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 strolled by Tommy Condon's and had to drop in with the couple we were traveling with. Great martini, beer, wine! We ordered "snack" food which was good, as far as meals cannot comment, but the music and drink made for a fun hour

Enticing menu with good variety of choices. Traditional corned beef and cabbage was tender and flavorful. Fish and chips were superlative. Service was fast and friendly.

While visiting this area, my lady companion, once again, had a the notion to try this establishment. Here, quite close to the 'City Market' is this Irish bar. Within this place is the standard dark wooded theme, with variant Gallic music ablaze, while the TV monitors show case the sports. The service was quick and pleasant. The menu is quite... More

we were a party of two having a late lunch. One of us had a crab cake that was good, the other had a hamburger that was disappointing. Everything else we experienced while in Charleston was great!

Stopped by for a break on Sunday. Had appetizer and $1 mimosa. Our server was very friendly and efficient. Great nachos and a break from the sidewalk crowd.

Crab cakes and poboy shrimp sandwich were a great way to end a walking tour in cool January day. Homemade snicker pie to share and coffee made it a great visit.
