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.

Great Irish Atmosphere

I enjoyed the food, drink, and entertainment at Tommy Condon's. The shrimp and grits were good but the atmosphere was what sets this place apart. A great place for fun and entertainment.

Stopped in for drinks and apps. Service was actually terrible. After waiting 15 minutes, we had to flag down a server to take our drink order. We liked the atmosphere but with the terrible service and ho-hum apps, can't say that we'd make an effort to come back.

One thing you have to know about Charleston, South Carolina, is it is a wonderful restaurant town, lots of good Lowcountry cooking, shrimp and grits, fresh seafood and raw bars. So what is an Irish pub doing in the Historic District? Tommy Condon's Irish Pub and Seafood Restaurant, which was opened in 1984 at 160 Church Street across the street... More

Had a great night in here! Went in for something to eat and had the Sunday special. Low country boil. Seafood Sausage corn and potato cooked in the same pot. Was lovely sitting outside. Went inside later for some great music and friendly banter with some locals. Great pub!

Thursday is half price appetizer day. You could make a meal of any of these. The Irish nachos and Dublin rolls were outstanding. The meals were excellent. The Bookmaker, O'Cuban, pulled pork, and shrimp dinner all very good. Service was very good.

We were shopping and hanging out in downtown Charleston and looking for something different. We had a midday lunch here. The service was friendly and they have a large beer menu to choose from. I had a pub burger, which was great with very distinctive tastes. Husband had fried shrimp, which he said were assuredly fresh and not frozen. Good... More

We came here especially to listen to Carrol Brown and Marci Shore, who play here every wednesday evening and are both great musicians. Their music was wonderful, we were glad we came! Because we were a little short in time we decided to have dinner at Tommy Conden's pub as well (we were initially planning on dining somewhere else). I... More
