Been going there for years when in town.Absolutely the best rooftop bar view in Charleston.In the winter has glass barriers and heaters to keep you warm.Usually the drinks are not the best made and if you plan to drink a lot it will break the bank.I usually just have one or two and enjoy the view in between doing other...

Busy busy, but an excellent bar. Expect to have to wait for your table at Grill 225. The bar area is a great place to start your dining experience

Fear not the cigar section is off to the side and is partitioned well. I did not smoke on date night, but plan to return. This is a must if the weather is right! Our waiter was awesome (Chris), and the bartender could not have made a better dirty martini. Try the Tuna tower when you get a seat. Wine... More

this is our third time eating there. The view is fabulous - the sunset is beautiful. We tried the lobster/mushroom pizza - delicious. The staff was great. It is rooftop dining- there is plastic windows all around with heaters to keep everyone warm.

A must stop while in Charleston. A very relaxing afternoon for drinks and lunch. Being there gives you a great view of the city. The service was top shelf-very good food-nice drinks-just a fun place to spend sometime time while in Charleston.

We really enjoyed the rooftop bar. Great service and a great view during sunset. Very close to lots of other destinations and restaurants and easy to get to. Great place to meet up before or after dinner.

We did have to wait a few minutes for a table (first come, first served), but we ended up getting Shannon as our server and she totally made our entire experience worth the wait! She was fun,...
