We sat outside on a overcast afternoon and spit the Tomato Napoleon and The Sullivan Burger. Our server was pleasant, but very average. It is customary in Charleston to bring a water bowl for outdoor diners' dogs. Our server ignored the two small, leashed, quiet dogs. Our drinks were slow arriving, but well priced and tasty. Our water was kept full, but the request for no ice was ignored. The Napoleon was interesting and a generous size, but there is a lot going on on the plate and it may be trying to appeal to too many tastes. The burger was very good, but medium came out a juicy well done. The sweet potato fries with cinnamon sugar were good, but should be served with apple butter or maybe honey butter. No manager visited to see how our visit was going. Plates were cleared promptly by a very efficient bus person. Unfortunately, I don't think we will be back, since there are other burger places in Mount Pleasant with superior burgers and service.

Stopped in for lunch today excited to try, as I have heard good things about their burgers. Waited several minutes for someone to come over to seat us, then had to ask someone. Once sat we looked at the menu and waited for someone to come ask us about drinks.....one girl standing behind bar, another sweeping, and neither came over we again had to ask. Once drink ordered filled we again waited For someone to come take our order to which they did not so we walked out. Was not able to sample the burgers but would never go back as the service was atrocious!!!!!

The food (from the crawfish tails to the fried pickles to the burgers) was all really good. The service was wonderful. The acoustics made it almost painful to stay. It was so loud that my guests and I were literally jumping out of our skin each time a waitress "placed" a plate in the dirty dish bin or the bartender "placed" a bottle in the trash. There are places in Mount Pleasant that have been able to address the noise issue with baffles, wall hangings, etc. But these folks don't seem to get it. We won't be back unless something is done about the acoustics. Too bad, too, because we really enjoyed the food and service.

I've waited to write this review hoping the situation would improve but after a visit last night - I can confirm that I will not be back. It was "active" for a Wednesday night but not overly crowded. We were seated and then waited ten minutes for a server to find us/offer drinks. Seemed there was only one server on duty and she was frazzled. Barely listened to our orders, got them confused on more than one item. Didn't get our first appetizer because she said the cook burned it and it had to be remade. (The cook appeared to be about 16 as a previous post mentioned). The entire staff seems very young and there is obviously no managerial oversight at all anymore. The food quality was poor to bad. My taco had the wrong mix of ingredients and anything fried tasted like the oil was weeks old. And $9 for two tacos that were ill prepared - and don't even come with a side? It's a shame because it had potential at one time but it seems whomever is in charge...is not taking charge.

Food is freshly made and always consistently good. The Sunday bloody Mary's and mimosa special for $2 is awesome. It's a bar atmosphere and sometimes loud inside (trivia night especially) so we sat on the patio. Only issue there was service was slower and could smell nearby dumpster. Otherwise ... everything was good.
