Review of The Griffin

The Griffin
Ranked #7 of 52 Nightlife in Charleston
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed December 24, 2012

Went to Griffin because we heard the fish and chips was excellent, well, to our standards it wasn't. It was VERY fried. Not at all what we are used to in the East. The atmosphere was 5 TV's of football and guys yelling at the game. If this is your thing, great, you've found a new place, if not, don't bother.

Found the Griffin walking up a side street among a row of Inns and other small stores. Great selection of Micro brews and the game on several TV's throughout the bar area.. Had some great beers and good conversation with locals and travelers while sitting at the bar. Although we did not order food everyone that did seemed to be very happy with their meals. When in Clarleston again we will surely make our way back to The Griffin.

Just looking at this place from the doorway, you would never guess the best fish and chips anywhere lives here! We went for lunch during the week and the cod fish and chips...the best! We returned on a Friday evening and it was packed, only had one waitstaff who was totally overwhelmed, but if you didn't mind waiting and having a few beers before ordering, it was still very fun. The walls are covered with dollar bills from all over the world. I dream about the fish and chips though...just the best. YOu must try!

This is nestled in with some upscale inns and the fountain/boardwalk/ocean nearby. Dollar bills line the walls and ceilings of this laid back little pub. Bartenders are friendly and so are the patrons. I never miss stopping by when I'm there on vacation. Check it out!
