Everyone is entitled to their opinion but I have eaten at this restaurant many times and never had the experience the "make-reservations" "Nothing special" reviewer had! Every time we have been, the food has been dynamic ... VERY different in a good way than what you will find any "any other" restaurant.
In fact, I highly recommend it as a must-try restaurant for those visiting Charleston. It does not have the allure of the downtown location that those there have, but it is well worth venturing out away from downtown a little for something with great flavor and at very reasonable prices.
The service we've had there has also always been good. I actually took 3 friend there last year when there for a women's conference and they all loved it, so much so that one who went back called me while down there for the location... she was going back!
