Great Pub

We had lunch there. It's reasonably priced and you get a lot of food for your money. My mom said the fish n chips were awesome. The pub has a great atmosphere. People write on dollar bills and they are stapled to the walls, ceiling, booths. Great food. The pub is within walking distance of a... read more

Best Fish'N'Chips in town! mother favorite spot of mine to bring friends who visit. Craft beers, many local, on tap. Great pub food menu. Walls covered in dollar bills from patrons from all over the world. Charming grunge ambiance in an Old English style pub!

A fun way to spend a beautiful Saturday lunch with my wife, while relaxing with a full compliment of draft and bottled beers, and sampling tasty food in a joint that probably has more dollar bills than a federal reserve bank. Oh, I was the Driver, so I didn't sample the beers, that privilege went to my better half. The... More

Really nice bartenders and good bar food. Craft beer on tap, except PBR. Just a good, friendly joint.

The Griffon is ideally located next to the Charleston Waterfront Park. It was packed early evening when we arrived, but we lucked into a table, seating ourselves with a couple of guys that were just tabbing out. The downtown area was busy with locals and tourists all crowding onto the waterfront for the upcoming Christmas Boat Parade scheduled to begin... More

This place was really cool with the signed dollar bills all of the place. This was probably the best fish & chips I have ever had! Everything on the menu was 10 bucks or under! Great staff too!

Good pub with daily specials and a nice selection of beer on tap. Crowded with locals on lunch break so if you can, come by 11:40 or wait until later. Fried fish so tender I had to eat my sandwich with a fork. I especially liked the slaw: slightly sweet light creamy dressing. Generous portions and friendly staff.

A dive with character. The food is solid bar food; the beer list is well above average, and focuses on the beers from the thriving local beer scene. The walls are almost completely covered with stapled dollar bills, bearing messages from patrons. You WILL have a good time there.

Great little place up by the waterfront. Fish and chips were wonderful. I also had the best coleslaw ever!! We made sure to leave our decorated dollar on the wall. Make sure you visit this little place, you won't be disappointed!

Located just off the Charleston Waterfront Park, The Griffon pub could have been a hang out for sea captains or even Rhet Butler 150 years ago. Small, warm, and cozy - the walls and ceiling are entirely covered in signed dollar bills. Looking for lunch, we spotted it from the street. The posted menu looked good and affordable. Might be...
