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.

Pub & Seafood -- Great Combination!!

The Pub is a popular watering hole with a good selection of beers! The menu is diverse and the food is delicious. Plenty of seating with TVs for sports too!

This place was OK, but nothing special. It does have a great location near the Market and has a variety of food. It was OK to me, but had I chosen different, and it may have been great. I chose the Pub Burger and it wasn't anything special. The bun was too much for the burger and it just didn't... More

We were tired and stopped in for a quick bite. It was half price burger night and the burgers were super. I got grits as a side and they were better than what we paid $26 for the night before. It was very pleasant to sit outside and rather quiet. We enjoyed it a lot.

We sat in the outside dining area and enjoyed a Cuban sandwich and a BBQ burger. We have had the soups and fish in past visits. The food and drinks have always been good. It has an old Irish pub atmosphere. We try to go there on each visit to Charleston.

Not only was there some irish food but seafood as well along with other choices. The atmosphere was casual and laid back. The wait staff was fun and helpful. Portion sizes were generous.

Had a couple of good beers and some really good dip. The place is a bar with an outside deck. The deck is nice, and to be honest, all of it seems a bit older. Has some history to it so that is neat. Don't expect new and modern and fancy... not the place... Some history, nostalgia... then this may... More

We had never been to Charleston before but knew they have great restaurants. Didn't want anything fancy as we walked around the historic district. Decided to stop here to listen to live music. I should have known not to order a steak at a pub, but it sounded good at the time. It was the worst steak I've ever had... More

We went to Tommys for an early dinner on Easter weekend, we both had the Fish and Chips (Irish restaurant, can't go wrong with that selection right?). Maybe we went on a "bad" night but the fish was overcooked, the batter was excessive causing it to be undercooked, the Cole Slaw didn't even taste like Cole Slaw (especially not Southern... More

We were visiting Market Square and checking out the lovely sites of Charleston when we came upon Tommy Condon's Irish Pub and Seafood Restaurant. Ours was a late lunch but the restaurant was hopping; as busy as it was, our wait for a table was brief. The wait staff was very friendly and efficient, the food was delicious and portions... More
