Went there on a recommendation for the large selection of beers on tap. With the pages and pages of beer to select from, I assumed the bartenders knew their products. I asked what the IBU of their "on tap" IPA's was and was told it was all in the menu. When I showed her it wasn't, she said she didn't... More

There are many fabulous places to eat in Charleston. My wife and I were shopping downtown and decided to get lunch. In the middle of the French Quarter we decided to go in… we were not disappointed! There is an extensive beer list featuring local as well as exotics. We tried 2 different flights in order to get an idea... More

The male bartender working Sunday night was so arrogant. A consummate beer snob. Every customer sitting at the bar was doing him the favor by being there. It came across to me and watching his condescending attitude with other customers was a big turn off. I am going to give it another chance they have a great beer selection,and a... More

This place was recommended by our hotel staff. Wasn't totally on board when I found out my husband had requested a place with pub food and I was expecting fried and unhealthy options. What a surprise! Amazing food options and an insane beer "book". I had the flank steak tacos. The steak was cooked perfectly and was topped with grains,... More

If you like beer, they have a wealth of beer on tap. It's very quaint and enjoy hanging there with friends.

We had been walking around for awhile and were starting to run out of energy. This restaurant/pub is located on a side street and doesn't have a large sign but make the effort to find it (on the right coming from E Bay). I saw friends, families, couples, etc having lunch. The restaurant is nicely appointed offering tables, booths and... More

We kind of stumbled on this place but wound up loving it. There are many places to eat in Charleston but this was probably my favorite meal...and my husband went crazy for the beer menu! It was a book! SO many cool beers to choose from. As for me, I got the brisket sandwich--probably the best brisket I have ever... More

We found this place by chance, and glad we did. They have an outstanding selection of craft beers (on tap, bottles & cans; probably the biggest list I have seen anywhere, period). Really helpful waitress (very knowledgeable on the beers and food, and was happy to switch a beer after we realised that we'd ordered the wrong one). Cool interior... More

Local pub and the food was surprisingly good. There are 3 rooms with seating at tables, two bars and an outdoor section as well. My impression is that more than 1/2 of the customers were locals.

Had a burger here. Interior is unique, service is great. The burger was more than a simple burger, complex and delicious! Worth several more visits
