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.

First of all we knew that it is not a classy restaurant, so our expectations were not high. On the terrace the noise was almost unbearable, so we asked for a table where there would be less noise. This was ok for 15 minutes. The food is average and the service is very simple. If you are tired of eating... More

We came to the Charleston Historic District on a day trip for a particular Speleto event. For convenience we chose this restaurant. Excellent atmosphere, service was good, and the entertainment was really wonderful. It was a late dinner, and there was a live 3 person Irish band playing. Getting to food... both of us ordered fish and chips and cups... More

Disliked the din in the place. We ate outside but the tableless were still noisy. The food was good but not great. Our server was a sweetheart and my dirty martini was excellent.

Couldn't get into the place we wanted on Friday night, but no biggee - hadn't met a bad meal yet in Charleston. Well, this was a first. Even worse since it is supposedly an Irish pub....been in a lot of restaurants in Ireland - no Irish pub would stay in business serving this fish, and can't believe these guys can.... More

The location is convenient to the downtown market, and the staff is very efficient and polite. I've been many times and always enjoy the relaxed atmosphere. I enjoy sitting at the bar, but tables are also available.

We stopped for lunch one day at this restaurant. We sat on the open air deck. It does have a nice menu with their irish slant on dishes. We had a very difficult time hearing each other at the table, it was very noisy and it wasn't that busy. I guess just nothing to absorb sound out there on the... More

My daughter & I were in Charleston for the day. While on a carriage ride, we spotted Tommy Condon's. I'm a big fan of Irish pubs & this didn't disappoint. The lunch menu is varied--so many good choices! The fried green tomato BLT was delish!! Loved the potato soup! Would definitely eat here again!!

Appetizers were delicious, including Fried Green tomatoes, Crab Cakes, Tommy Condon Nachos, and Tomato Salad. Cold beers completed the experience
