We had some great food and drinks at the Ryder hotel bar - Tommy the bartender was awesome!!!! Great drinks and great chat! We had the salad with the fried chicken and the burger - highly recommend! If you’re in town, stop by and ask for Tommy and one of the delicious cocktails on the menu. You won’t be disappointed.

A must go to when visiting Charleston. Tommy knows his way around the bar and makes a killer cocktail. Ask him about the origins of the French75! Dont miss out on this gem of a bar have a couple 7–day weekends!

Little palm has the cutest atmosphere and great food! Perfect place for a girls lunch. I got the chopped salad with poached shrimp, it was delish. The host, Carlos was great and our server Tommy was amazing!

Tommy was fantastic. Great recommendation on drink choice. Super clean and good vibe. Pool access is a plus as well. Also close to all the action. Was warm outside but still was very comfortable. Went to several day bars and Will definitely be back.

Loved the drinks Tommy prepared for us at the bar! Great selection of drinks. The ambience at the pool bar was friendly and relaxing. I recommend the “seven day weekend “ drink or the “Easy Breezy.” Love the Ryder!
