“AVOID”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Service and food was horrible. Atmosphere was okay if you like watching people walking around like they're lost. Pets are allowed on the patio so if you don't like pets don't bother going. Otherwise, enjoy these beautiful creatures.

“Good Beach Bum Restaurant”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

I go to Cha Cha's on a fairly regular basis, mostly when I'm out doing some shopping at St. Armands. The service is good, food is pretty average. The sweet potato fries are the best- definitely get these if you're going. Live music on a lot of nights--can be awesome, or just loud, depending on your mood.

“Kick back and relax”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

One of the more casual restaurants on The Circle. Fun music, great service and not bad food. Most ordered fish of some description which they enjoyed. I had the ribs which were tasty. Prices were right and drinks were good. Dining outside is a nice option.

“Great Location, Decent Food”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

We went when other restaurants had super long waits to be seated and Cha Cha Coconuts seated 7 of us very fast. The wait person was very friendly and attentive. Everyone else seemed to be somewhat enjoy their food, however I wasn't very impressed with the pulled pork. I thought it really lacked flavor. The sandwich was huge, it could have fed two people, however I would prefer to see a smaller serving with more flavor. The restaurant did have a strange odor where we were sitting. I probably would not have noticed it, however someone in our party mentioned it, so that kind of made all of us notice it to. Cha Cha Coconuts would be a great place to go for drinks and appetizers with friends, however not someplace to go for fine dining or on a date. They had a really lively atmosphere (neat guy playing the steel drums).
