The place is absolutely covered in dollar bills that people write on and then staple to the wall. $2.50 PBR drafts, so no complaints there. Good atmosphere.

We jumped in late at night for a drink and snacks. The beer selection is great, as were the fish and chips and mozzarella sticks. The staff constantly circled to check on us for refills, but it's a nice little place where your group can relax without feeling rushed. Reading all the notes inscribed on the dollar bills that plaster... More

We stopped in this bar/restaurant to get a quick lunch with our family (2 adults; 5 kids). The place is covered in old dollar bills, which gives it kind of a "dive" appearance. However, we weren't deterred given the strong recommendation from our hotel. The food was actually really good (pub options). The server was AMAZING. She was running everything... More

Don't waste your time! TERRIBLE service! We sat and waited for 20 minutes....and NO one even came to our table. It was not very busy, not a very large place and there were 4 or more on the wait staff. NO excuses, this is a waste of time! Charleston is full of quality places to eat and drink. THIS IS... More

Couldn't resist checking out the English Pub to watch the France v Iceland match. The bar is fun, with dollar bills from patrons wallpapering the entire establishment, but nothing fancy. The menu is traditional bar fare but for shockingly reasonable prices for such a prime location.

One of those fun little places that you always remember for the BIG selection of beer and the dollar bills that are autographed and pinned on every surface. Pretty good eatin also.

Griffon is a diamond in the rough! Fun, quirky little hole in the wall in downtown Charleston. Great place to watch the game and catch up with friends. We stopped in twice during our 2 day trip! Decent service and prices. All we tried were the mozzarella sticks (and drinks), but I hope to visit again in the future to... More

Not really sure why people willingly choose to eat in here when there are so many other great restaurants and bars in the area. Could it maybe be the novelty of being in a pseudo English pub? From the moment we walked in we were disappointed. No one greets you (period) and whilst you go to the bar like a... More
