If this restaurant was in a city other than Charleston, it would be better. You don't think of good southern food when you think of this restaurant. You do think of a hole in the wall where you are seated with other guests and are able to mingle with them. Had an O'Salmon and while the portion was small it... More

I have eaten in this restaurant for lunch countless times, while visiting Charleston and today must have been an off day for them. Service was VERY slow, more so than usual... and the food not near as tasty as usual. It is always a fun place, very noisy and crowded...if one does not get there early, there is generally a...

It's a nice hole in the wall. Very close seating with other guests, about a 50% chance of having a friendly waiter and a fair to don't do it wine selection. The vegetarian dish was wonderful. Truly delicious. It could have stood to have a more consistent heat throughout, but the garlic sauce was enough of a treat you sorta... More

We came in for an early lunch at this cozy cafe. Our server was helpful, and we enjoyed the salad and sandwich. This is a popular place with good food and reasonable prices.

This was a fun place for lunch. Although the portions were not generous, they were tasty. We especially enjoyed the desserts. We got a little nervous when our waitress left the premises after taking our order. Someone else stepped right in and all was well. Seating was tight but fine for a luncheon meal.

If you are looking for a formal high-end white table cloth french dining experience, please do all a favor and go somewhere else <smile>. The service at G&M is pleasant, prompt & helpful, , the ambiance is friendly informal eclectic albeit small, the food is tasty and wonderfully prepared. This evening we sat at the counter, the back table had... More

Found this restaurant 4-5 years ago and come back every time we come to town. It's actually one of reasons we come to Charleston. Crowded and noisy ... you share a counter or table with others. The Croque Baguette (with ham) and the soups are why we come here for lunch and, if we're here on a Thursday, we come... More

Another little, and I mean "little" place close to the B&B we stayed at for Christmas. Basic French options that are served quickly and are very tasty. We had Lunch & breakfast during our visit and loved it both times. Good place to meet others and enjoy coffee and croissant. Definately recommend it.
