Visiting Charleston on a weekend getaway. Very disappointed. Pineapple mojito watered down. Volcano shrimp was cold. Waitress not very attentive.

They didn’t have a lot of vegan options but were very helpful in pointing out the pure vegan options. They also gave tips to other restaurants, which I thought was very nice. My husband got a curry and tofu meal which was good but I...More
