Charleston's is always very consistent. The service food and everything about it is always great. The menu has something for everyone too. I had the fried catfish and it was just like I would get in the South. We love coming here!

“Service is always excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2009

New Years Eve we decided to try a standby which has always been a good choice for not being disappointed in a meal. The service was very good even though it was crazy nuts with patrons. We were able to do a call in to reserve a space on the wait list and at 4:00 were told we could be seated immediately, not our time to dine. We called at the suggested 30 minute before arrival time and when we arrived we said our wait would be anywhere from 45 minutes to 1 hour. We sat at the bar, had a glass of wine and ate the shrimp cargot, which was a cleaver way to serve garlicky cheesy very good shrimp. When we were called to our booth inside to dine we chose the mahi mahi which was very bland, thick and stringy, unusual to say the least and not that great. Hubby chose the catfish and once again the portion was huge and tasty. The salad is always fresh and crisp with the champagne vinegar dressing. The beat all is the made on site croissant that is so buttery flaky and drizzled with just the right amount of honey that it makes you want to ask for several more to stash away for a later treat. It was a good meal based on the jinormous crowd but if you want peaceful it was not a quiet evening although we decided since it was the eve of New Year we would savor our time there and relax, definitely will be going back.
