Good Meal

We ended up at Joe Pasta at the end of the day with tired & hungry kids. It was close to our hotel so we decided to give it a try. I was a little worried based on reviews I read while we were waiting for our drinks. However, it turned out to be a good place to eat. Our... read more

We learned that the owner makes excellent, fresh gnocci, but we're not gnocci lovers so we ordered house salad and two spaghetti dishes. My husband had spaghettini with red sauce and meatball and I tried the linguini with clams. We waited over an hour for our dishes with no explanation. Both were supposed to come with A PIECE of bread... More

This is a not too large pasta restaurant at the corner where we thought we could get a quick dinner. The food selections were interesting and the food was very good. The service is typical Southern pace - no rush - so our

This was our first time eating here. We were a party of 4. We ordered 2 soups-the first one came out ice cold and had to send it back. The second one came out 10 minutes later. Then after waiting a half hour to get our entree, we only got 2 of our orders, the next one came wrong, and... More

Just down the street from our Hampton Inn hotel was Joe's. We were exhausted from touring all day and decided to pop in there. It was very good - our waiter was great and the food was excellent. Portions are large so if you're as hot and tired as we were, you might consider sharing a dish. The house Merlot... More

I had one of the best pizzas I have ever had.........It had a very thin, crunchy crust and was so tasty. I had feta cheese, garlic sauce, pepperoncinis, and pepperoni on mine. My waiter was more than helpful since I was new to the area, and very friendly,

We went to Charleston in April for a few days of Spring Break with the kids, we didnt realize it was Bridge Race Weekend. It was packed, but within 1 block of our hotel, and with tired hungry kids in tow, we knew everyone could get something to fill them up that they liked. Food was good, our server seemed... More

Veal Parm to die for. All men waiters. Early afternoon dining for us. Seems a hot spot for the college kids at night. Outside dining. Walking distance to historic district, middle of downtown.

Food was only mediocre, we had a bogo coupon, still considered it unsatisfactory. There was nothing I can say to recommend it.
