We have a home nearby and occasionally we just need a burger and a beer. This is the place for it. With the walls covered with $1 bills the feel is perfect for a neighborhood bar. They certainly have more than burgers!

This is really more of a bar than a restaurant. We went for a quick bite one night while in the Orleans district of Charleston. The menu was pretty small, and the service was not speedy at all. Food was decent, but nothing special or unique about it.

Found this quite by accident and was pleasantly surprised. The beer selection is great and the lunch was awesome.

Recently stopped here while on vacation. The two bartenders were great and even gave me some friendly shots....haven't done that in a while. Great service and off the tourist trail of Charleston

Some of the best wings I have had in a while. Get the "buffayaki" and you will be glad you did. Great beer selection, lots of local choices.

Good tavern atmosphere. My husband sat and drank $2 PBR's...Considering we are in downtown Charleston, it was nice to leave with a cheap tab. Could have used to been colder, but the bartender was cold enough...Dollar bills all over walls and very dark...Looks like a "locals" hangout. We would go back.

This was a nice little pub. The atmosphere was nice. The drinks were great. The food was incredible. Their french fries are some of the best I have ever had! The service was all right up to a certain point. Once our food came, we were pretty much forgotten. We sat there with no drinks trying desperately to get our... More

As part of the Pub Crawl, this was one of our stops. I loved this bar. I would love to come back and enjoy a longer stay. This place had so much charm and character. Staff was friendly.
