After a disappointing incident a few years ago during the Super Bowl, my husband and I decided to give this place a try again. This evening we visited with some friends of ours for the Carolina/Clemson game because our regular place, Dagwoods was just too packed. And yet again we were disappointed. Our waitress acted as if changing the channel... More

The wings are good! Lots of sauces to choose from. Prices are high for wings, but again they are good. Atmosphere is awesome too, plenty of TV's. Couple of tables have own beer taps which is awesome. Never seen that before. Will return, and would recommend others to come.

Recently had a late lunch at The Carolina Tavern. Found a Groupon online 9$ for 20$. Had two burgers and a couple of beers for a few extra $ burgers were good and beers were cold. The service was good and friendly. I would recommend and would return!

We live near this bar/restaurant and thought we'd stop in and give it a try. It's decor looks like a lot of bar restaurant in the area. What sets this place apart is the food quality, and good service. Our steam shrimp were cooked perfectly. Our turkey club sandwich was incredible - looked nothing like any we'd seen with chunky...

Get away from the heavy tourist laden over priced restaurants. Follow the locals to a better way. Great food, fun atmosphere, and priced perfectly. This has been an on going love affair for me.

In the midst of a storm we ventured out for dinner. The restaurant was a few miles away and open. Many were not. We all ordered the same dinners, the steak combo special. Nice big piece of steak, only suggestion is you need to order it medium if you want it medium rare. Not a problem they quickly cooked it... More
