The food was really good and our server was brand new (4 days) on her own doing amazing! Only issue I had was it is very tight seating wise. I was in the isle and kept getting hit by the very rude musician playing that night that kept going back and fourth before he started.

This was a fun place for lunch. The decor is underwhelming (bar-like), but the food was quite good (sausage lasagna and spinach lasagna). Service was attentive and friendly, and the Motown music on the speakers made this Detroiter feel at home. Prices were decent for Charleston. Would go back if revisiting Charleston.

Visited based on GlutenFreeNearMe identification. GF menu limited to pasta and pizza. Pizza seemed premade and was crust plus cheese; no sauce. Pesto pasta had relatively no taste. Didn't feel great afterwards wh/ also suggests cross contamination. Wouldn't recommend to Celiacs. Rest of our party said the regular menu was average. Service was OK and location was good.

Came here for lunch after time at the Children's Museum. I had the Roman pizza which was 10 dollars. It was good on the french bread. My friend had turkey panini. We also have the bruschetta appetizer. Two children each had kids spaghetti and meatballs and one had penne with butter. The kids portions were a nice size and reasonably... More

My daughter and I made the long trek to this restaurant after having a good experience a few months ago. Not the case this time. Our waiter, who clearly did not enjoy working there, came up to us, no introduction and says, "What do you want?" We ordered drinks and mozzarella cheese sticks first. The sticks came out hard and...

Hello Kerrinkids... I want to sincerely apologize. We had been on such a nice run of good reviews too! First, my kitchen should NEVER have sent out the pizza to your table in the first place. I've discussed this with my kitchen, as well as the expo food runners, that if the product doesn't look like something you'd be proud... More

One of the best Bars in Charleston. We were staying next door and frequented Joe for dinner and drinks several times. A must go for drinks and dinner.

We had a loooong day of driving and walking around the city and this little place was right by our hotel. It's nothing fancy but the service was friendly, we leisurely people watched and the food was yummy. Our boys loved the Mac n cheese and we enjoyed Italian wedding soup, penne with meatballs and sausage and a captures salad... More

I had the caprese salad. My son and husband had their specialty french bread pizzas and my son only ate half, he's 12 and a big pizza eater so that tells you how filling they were.
