“Steak and Desert”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014

The atmosphere was relaxing and the food exceptional. The steak was cooked to perfection. The microbrewery beer quenched the thirst and the desert was fabulous!

“More than just Bar food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014

On our recent trip to Charleston, we went to Tbonz on more than one occasion. The first was for lunch while shopping on market St. Tbonzs brews their own ales and and the are very cheap on price but not on taste. We had a burger and a sandwich. If you think this is just bar food, think again. We went back the next night while waiting to check in for our ghost tour. Brittany was our bartender and she was great. She was friendly and very attentive. We will recommend this to anyone visiting Charelston.

“Great desserts”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014

We were kicked out of Planters restaurant since I was not wearing a collared shirt. This restaurant was nearby and so went it. Food was decent. Desserts were great. I had the white chocolate chip cake.

“Excellent steak with reasonable price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2014 via mobile

If you are in the mood for steak but not looking to spend a fortune in downtown Charleston ... This is your go to place. We already had a fancy lunch earlier in the day & were looking for some good steak without breaking the budget. The steak was cooked to perfection. We all enjoyed our dishes and a very satisfying meal. They managed to seat us quickly. Service was really good. Will definitely recommend going there.

“Good food, poor service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2014 via mobile

We dropped into this restaurant last night for dinner. Our food tasted great, but the on duty manager was not!
I ordered a 6oz. Filet, and my husband asked for a 6oz. Sirloin steak. I cannot eat gluten, so asked that the breaded onions be left off my meat. My side dish was mashed potatoes. As mentioned, my husband ordered 6 oz. sirloin steak with a vegetable side. When the meals arrived we realized that he was given my filet and I received his sirloin. We called over the manager and pointed out the error. ( If it were not for the onions on top of the meat on hubby's plate, we would just have switched the meats on the plates ourselves.) The manager said he was almost 100% sure we got the right meat. I remained polite and told him I know the difference between filet and sirloin steak. He said he would double check with the kitchen. He came back, put our plates down and pronounced that he was right, we were mistaken! But..we..were..not! I have been cooking, ordering and eating beef for years and know a steak from a filet. The manager walked away. I guess keeping us satisfied was not his concern.
Since we were hungry, we ate and paid for our meal. I have to give this restaurant credit, the meal was delicious. But we left with a sour taste in our mouth.
I have never left a bad restaurant review on trip advisor, this is my first. I hope that the owners do retraining of the management staff. They should know what sirloin steak looks like compared to filet! And they should listen to the guests. If you don't care that what you order isn't what you get, eat at this restaurant.

Thank you for visiting us at TBonz Gill and Grill and thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback on your experience. It was upsetting to hear of the lack of care and attention to detail we displayed in the service of your steaks, but it was even more upsetting to hear how we failed to correct that mistake quickly and appropriately. As you noted, keeping our guests satisfied and happy should always be our main concern while serving you. There is no excuse for the debate you encountered upon receiving your entrees, and we will be addressing your comments immediately. While your recent experience with us was by no means great, we would still love another chance to serve you again soon, in order to display the truly high standards we have for service, hospitality, and food preparation. Also, your comments will be reviewed with our entire staff and culinary team, in order to make sure this is a learning experience for us, and we improve upon the future experiences of our guests. Thank you again for your feedback and we hope to have the opportunity to serve you again soon.
