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.

“Excellent shepherd's pie”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013 via mobile

Excellent shepherd's pie. Flavorful and quite hearty. Overall a really nice place. Only "complaint" is the bartender had no idea to pour a Black and Tan.

Ate an early dinner on the patio after walking around historic Charleston. The food was good and the portions were adequate. Our waitress, Laramie, was very helpful.

We had dinner there and the atmosphere was good. Great bar and wide selection of beers and wine. The outdoor dining area was nice.

“Great Soup”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

We had a light dinner and drinks one night while we were in Charleston. My husband ordered their potato soup which was excellent. I ordered their fried tomato blt which was also wonderful. I did have it made on a hamburger bun rather than the bread that was on the menu - I want something a little lighter. I had tried my husband's soup and thought it was wonderful as well. We actually returned to the restaurant a second evening and had just the soup which we enjoyed as much the second time as the first. The restaurant was fine - although nothing spectacular. We ate both nights outside on the patio which was nice. Our waitresses both evenings were great - providing great service.
