Just great beer, good food and service in a laid-back, unpretentious casual atmosphere. It's in a great neighborhood as well in one of the oldest buildings on the street---very cozy; you gotta' try it--- and hey---they play some great classic rock as well! One of a kind and my favorite bar in all of Charleston!

The Griffon is an amazing spot to stop and have a local craft beer, watch a football game, and eat delicious bar food. The interior is covered with dollar bills personalized by the restaurant patrons and they have a large screen that they lower for sports events along with several smaller TVs so you can catch your game of choice. The serving sizes for the food are huge and I haven't had a bad meal yet. The chicken nachos are delicious and served on homemade chips!

We were looking for a reasonably price lunch in Charleston and found Griffons on the TA website. It was nice to go in a local bar/restaurant, rather than a tourist trap. The walls and ceiling are covered with dollar bills with written messages and signatures. My wife inquired and was quickly brought a box with markers and a staple gun. It was a challenge to find a open space to staple it to the wall.
Two of us had the fish and chips, the fish was outstanding. Cold slaw was very good.

Great place and only a couple blocks from the heart of the down town tourist area

My friend and I popped in here for a drink or two while waiting for a late night tour. We were able to find a table easily, and the service was quick and attentive. The bar is located very close to Waterfront Park and within walking distance of other sights downtown, so it is very conveniently located if you are looking for a quick drink or a good place to kill some time.
