Description: After working in the restaurant business for many years, Tommy opened his first restaurant in 1984. He has made his name by becoming one of Charleston's favorite local spots to serve up Lowcountry specialties such as shrimp and grits and fish and chips. Tommy runs the type of family-oriented establishment where people know their children are as welcome as they are. In fact, a children's menu has been specially prepared for "little leprechauns." In the months following Hurricane Hugo, Tommy made numerous trips to Ireland collecting exquisite antique mirrors and authentic Irish memorabilia that adorn his restaurant. He scoured the countryside and brought every pub mirror he could find. He laughs wryly about his massive shipping bills. The results are worth all his effort. The mirrors cast rich reflections, making the restaurant warm and inviting. Some mirrors are ornately detailed while others shimmer with simple elegance. You'll swear you've been transported to a pub shrouded in antiquity in Ireland's rambling countryside.The restaurant would not be complete without the sounds of Ireland. The background music is perfect. In the pub and bar area the "live" sounds of Ireland can be heard every Wednesday through Sunday nights. You can sit back and listen or join in singing an Irish-American sing-along. Tommy says it is wonderful to see whole families getting in on the fun at one table while at another sits a couple on a date and at yet another sits someone's grandparents remembering and laughing.

We love this place! Nice music...great food. The Sheperd's pie was outstanding! Best I've ever had. Fish and chips were also very good. Great staff, quick service. May sit outside or inside. May have a few too many TVs for us...but, sound was off, so that was nice.

They order was all wrong. Though the staff took care of the problem...I was finishing my meal, while my wife was still waiting for them to correct the order. I still tipped the waiter..but we will not return.

Dropped by quickly to get an order of Irish Nachos to go. Delicious! Ordered at the bar and the service was efficient and friendly. Will definitely have to sample these nachos again!

“Very good food, excellent location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2012

We stopped for lunch at Tommy's while walking through the old market. I fully anticipated it would be another tourist restaurant with bad food, but was pleasantly surprised by the food and the service. We sat out on the porch and were able to watch all of the horse carriages go by, people watch, and just enjoy the atmosphere of Charleston.

“Luck of the Irish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

Great Irish restaurant and Pub located in Charlestons Historical district. You wont be sorry for stopping in and having an ice cold brew. With so many to choose from, its hard to decide. The food is very fresh and the atmosphere makes you feel warm and welcomed. I highly recommend this Irish Pub for a great night out in the most beautiful city on the map. Charleston, S.C.
