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.

I have only been to this restaurant twice because I forget about it, but it really is great. Yes, they have Irish food, but the seafood is wonderful.

Cool old pub with cold beer and decent food. Staff is pretty inattentive. We came back a second time in hopes that the first visit was just an off day; it wasn't.

We stayed right across the street at Church Street Inn and had heard about this place before we arrived. After a play, we were looking for a late night bite to eat and were delighted to find that Tommy Condon's serves late night bottomless fish and chips. The live Irish music was some of the best I've heard, and I've... More

A traditional Irish Pub with good food and spirits. It was very convenient to our hotel and was open late for those late night dinners. Service was good, food was great and prices were reasonable.

I love Irish pubs. I love fish and chips. I love Charleston. What could go wrong? It was hot outside, we were shopping and hadn't eaten so we chose Tommy Condon's. The menu is large and has a nice selection of traditional pub eats and specials. The decor is a bit run down, but the music appropriate...love the bagpipes. My... More

Several of us met at Tommy Condon's (about 20) for dinner, and despite the size of our party they were able to graciously accommodate us without a reservation. The service was great, the food was casual (burgers, sandwiches, salads, etc.) for a reasonable price, plus they have an excellent array of brews. I recommend if you're looking for a casual... More

The crab cake balls were very good. Crisp on the outside, tender on the inside. Their bread pudding is good, too. We were there Thursday and Friday night and the music was lively, too. If you love a fiddle, then you'll love the music. Good drinks.

Good service. Good food. We had the fish and chips and Irish nachos. If you are looking for classic pub food this is the place to go.

This was the worst we ate in Charleston. A Reuben contained meat that was as hard as parchment. Service was slow. There are many better restaurants in Charleston. Not recommended
