Great pickles and beer, good service too. Beth was fantastic! We even paid for the bill with the dollars on the wall :) The Porter tasted like coffee, weird at first but grew on us.

Well worth the time to go in and see the interior, drink a Guiness (or whatever) and appreciate the years of history that have passed thru those walls

We just got done our walking tour & were famished. We walked in & sat down at first thought we would not get served. There was only one waitress (she did a great job but they might want to think about adding another waitress/waiter for the lunch hour) but In less than 5 minutes, she had ice teas on the... More

I do not know if we hit this place on an off day or what because our experience with service was not like all the other comments. We walked in and were greeted but that ended it. We waited and nothing, we walked to the bar, nothing. We sat at the table...still no waitress came. So we got up and... More

Walking around downtown. Very close to waterfront park. Great AC and craft beer. The crab cake sandwich was alright and the fish n chips were good. Lunch and 4 beers $50 with tip.

We went for drinks and have a few apps. It was a fun place to check out in downtown Charleston with some friends. There's dollar bills hanging all over the interior which made for some interesting decor. Everything was good. Lots of good beer options. Go check it out for some drinks with friends.

Stopped in here, frankly, to find a bathroom...got a local beer and enjoyed ourselves for 20 minutes; worth a stop base on decor and location.

My parents took my husband and I here for dinner. They love the fish and chips. I ordered the blackened chicken Caesar salad and it was good. I'm not a huge fan of fish but ended up eating off my husbands plate since he ordered it as well! HIGHLY recommend and if you want to spend an extra dollar, you... More

After walking a great deal, we were in need of a sit and a drink. Griffon, near Water Front Park appeared and we sat. A very funky bar, covered in colored dollar bills, outstanding service, a surprisingly good chicken salad sandwich and fries for a bar and a great selection of beer. It is definitely worth the stop any time.

Griffon was great. Forget the run-of-the-mill places in the Market area of Charleston. This bar serves up a very good selection of beers and great lunchtime pub food - and had a good feel about it. We stuck to chili nachos and beer, but clearly the other fare was very popular with the local workers. AND very good value, welcoming... More
