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.

My husband and I ate here a couple times during our vacation in Charleston. They have an excellent staff and location. I enjoyed the beer can wings, she crab soup, and shrimp and grits. The shrimp and grits was different then a true Charleston style but it was good enough to eat just not authentic. I would definitely go back.

Went here for a quick lunch with friends. Typical pub food, mostly fried & greasy. The fish & chips were probably good, the Reuben looked good, but not at all what I was in the mood for. I ordered a salad with grilled chicken at the suggestion of our very nice & fun waitress. The salad was fine. Hubby ordered the crab cakes/balls or whatever and they were so-so. But the place was very old and dirty. Floor looked like it hadn't been cleaned in years. Lots of woodwork, wooden tables, etc were all very worn & sticky. The restroom doors were old and water-damaged. Not a very appetizing atmosphere for someone who pays attention to things like that. But if you don't mind, and you want some great pub food, you'd probably be happy here. Our waitress was really friendly & fun.

Wow! The food was fabulous, the service was amazing. The She-Crab soup was my favorite. I love Irish Pubs and this one ranks high on my list of places to eat;.

If you like fish and chips or large Ruben sandwich with great Irish music and great draft beer this is the place for you. I had lunch there twice and service was fast and the staff friendly. They have an outside seating area, full bar and plenty of room so if you feel the need for a great lunch or dinner try there specials.

Went in for a quick meal only because it was close to hotel and a lot of other places nearby were booked up. The "she-crab" soup was essentially devoid of crab flavor but loaded with salt. The shepards pie was 3 balls of mashed potato on a thin stew of minced beef. Overly salty aswell. Drink refill never came. Would not recommend.
