Swung in for a couple of beers and went back. Looked like a little dive bar. Good beers, great service and surprisingly good food. They can call it grub but the menu is pretty good and we were impressed with the quality.

They use Angus beef and you can taste the difference. Burger was cooked perfectly. French dip also good. If you like sweet potatoes, try the tots! Our waitress, Ashley, was Great! Attentive and very sweet.

We ate here our first night in Charleston. We were just looking for a casual place to eat and have a drink. We ordered the beef dip sandwich and fries along with drinks. Our waitress was really nice. Food was okay.

It’s a Chicago themed bar. So if you like Chicago anything, Chicago style dogs, Chicago Cubs, Chicago WHATEVER, this is your Graceland. Football on several TVs all Sunday long. First come first serve though.

As a female solo traveler, I always try to find safe spots with good food, drinks, and prices. The big salad with fried chicken really hit the spot after walking to the waterfront. Bartenders were on par with service, food was great, and they had...More
