Description: Our name says we're famous for tender, juicy steaks. But TBonz also serves a complete menu to whet any appetite. From fresh, local seafood to low country specialties, customers will savor the flavor in our casual atmosphere. All of our TBonz Gill & Grill steakhouse restaurants feature a family-friendly dining room. Our kidz menu for children 12 and under offers small portions of classic children's favorites.Our daily Happy Hour in the bar attracts locals and tourists alike. Enjoy one of our award-winning Homegrown Ales on tap that complement any meal. We highly recommend our signature appetizer Tommy's Texas Cheese Fries Deluxe.

“Good meal and better value.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

First time visit to this restaurant. Our party of four started with the Trio dip appetizer. Tortilla chips and the 3 dips were not outstanding but tasty. Two in our party ordered the Drunken Ribeyes, one got the prime rib, and the other got ribs.The ribeyes were good but could have been more tender. The prime rib was very good as were the ribs. The server was friendly and attentative as could be during the busy supper hour. The best thing about this evening was the reasonable prices. Compared to other restaurants in Charleston, 19.95 for a 14 oz ribeye with sides was excellent.

“A Great Place to Eat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

Loved this restaurant! Ordered steak & it was so deliciously cooked & much cheaper than some of the finer restaurants in town. Desserts are from the bakery next door & are absolutely DIVINE! I wish this restaurant was in Michigan!

“Best Burger around.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

Returned this year for another burger....last year had a quickie take out & it was so good we came back and dined in. Burger was excellent! Staff very nice. Dessert from Kaminsky's they receive daily was so good! Had the chocolate cake...to go....but it never made it out the door Their burgers are one of THE BEST BURGERs I've ever had. Open air dining, very casual burger joint...still haven't tried the steak.....maybe next year

“Great location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

This is right across from the market so the location was great. My husband and I each had the ribeye and were not impressed. The mac and cheese was wonderful.

Thank you for visiting us at TBonz Gill and Grill and thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. Sourcing only the finest ingredients and serving only the highest quality Certified Angus Beef, we take great pride in the steaks and food we serve at TBonz. It is clear from your comments, however, that we failed to display the pride in your recent experience. There is no excuse for our failure to cook your steak perfectly and we will be sure to review your comments with our chef and culinary team, in order to guarantee this sort of mistake does not occur again. While this recent visit did not exemplify our truly high standards for exceptional food and beverage, we would still love another chance to serve you again soon. Thank you for your comments once again and we hope to see you soon.

“Good stop for cocktails and appetizers!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

After wandering the city for several hours we were ready to wet our whistles and get a little nosh to hold us over until our dinner reservation. We had a table right next to the open windows, which was perfect for people watching and enjoying the afternoon breeze. Nothing fancy, but a solid selection of drinks and beers and some good appetizers - our favorite was definitely the blue cheese chips, YUM!! Service was good and value is as expected. Worth a stop for a beer and some light nosh.
