Stars Rooftop & Grill Room – MT

Published on November 9, 2012 by in Uncategorized

495 King American, emphasis on locally produced $$$ If you’ve been living under a fricken rock (for the last month) then you likely missed King Street’s newest member of the culinary club. Stars has been one of the most highly anticipated restaurants to open in the area since The Macintosh or The Grocery—and, when you’re going up against those two for patrons, you’ve got your work cut out for you. Planning to open in August before the PGA tournament, it finally opened the first week of October – just in time for my birthday. And, while we’re comparing it to

Circa 1886

Published on September 19, 2012 by in Uncategorized

149 Wentworth French/American $$$$- Fine dining experience How to save $: Best bet is to go during restaurant week but even that will put you at $85+ a person after wine, tax and tip! Eager to jump on Restaurant Week early, we made reservations at Circa 1886—a restaurant we’ve always wanted to try. Deriving its name from the construction of the Wentworth Mansion that it shares a property with, the restaurant is housed in a great historic building with lots of character.   The first thing I noticed is that Circa 1886 is much more formal than I imagined. Plenty

The Grocery

Published on August 30, 2012 by in Uncategorized

4 Cannon $$$ – Dinner & Happy Hour Southern/Soul, International How to save $: Get a good sampling at Happy Hour where apps are between $5 and $7, wine is discounted and beers are BOGO The Grocery, located on Cannon Street, is one of the new up-and-coming restaurants in Charleston. Well, according to Charleston City Paper or really any other food blog for that matter. But, if you read Eat King Street, you’ll see that it’s not one of our favorites. I mean, if you like stuffy atmospheres and high prices, this might just be your place. I don’t mean to

King Street Grille

Published on August 24, 2012 by in Uncategorized

304 King Pub/Bar, American $$ King Street Grille touts itself as an “upscale sports bar,” which appears to be a very recent rebranding. They’ve attempted to “class up” the menu a lot: they’ve added a crown beside each and every one of the “The King’s Recommendations,” removed the beer list altogether (apparently Royalty drinks a red or white wine from their extensive menu that did make the cut). I guess that’s what separates the grills from the Grilles. From a quick glance at their website, it would seem that this is a perfect place to “bro out,” as evidenced from their MMA After

The Macintosh

Published on August 16, 2012 by in Uncategorized

479B King American $$$$ – Plan on dropping some cash here Part of Indigo Restaurant Group: Includes Oak Steakhouse, O-Ku, & The Cocktail Club The Macintosh is Charleston’s highest-rated restaurant right now on Urbanspoon. Coming in with a 90% rating, you’d expect the food to be good. The good news is: you’ll be right. It may very well get my vote for the best dinner in Charleston. At the very least, it’s secured a top-three rank. And, this past week, it earned a nomination from Bon Appetit magazine as one of the 50 Best New Restaurants in America. Located on Upper King, the big glass doors showcase the inside from the street, but, when we first

Burger Babies

Published on August 14, 2012 by in Uncategorized

NOTE: Burger Babies is now closed. 293 King Lunch, Dinner $ How to save $: Grab a CofC campus coupon book (available for non-students like us if you can find them) and use the BOGO The restaurant opened about a year ago, offering baby burgers — or simply hamburger sliders to the untrained eye. The employees make the burgers pretty fast (I guess these “babies” don’t have to cook as long as the larger-sized ones) and the variety of beef, turkey, chorizo and tofu burgers are sure to please even the pickiest of eaters.         They offer

Wentworth Grill

Published on August 9, 2012 by in Uncategorized

68 Wentworth American, Southern/Soul $$$ How to save $: Use a restaurant.com gift card: we got great deal with $50 off a $100 tab. Ended up paying $67 (meal, wine, tax & tip) for much more expensive meal. I try to make it a point to not do too much research on restaurants before we go to them. I kept the same philosophy on our visit to Wentworth Grill–I had heard of it before from Restaurants.com (which is always a slight hint that they’re desperate for business). I had an inclination that it was attached to a hotel, maybe, but other than

Butcher & Bee

Published on August 7, 2012 by in Uncategorized

654 King Lunch daily & until 3am Thur-Sat $-$$ If you haven’t heard of Butcher and Bee, you’ve surely been living under a rock. Opening in October 2011, the relatively new restaurant on Upper King has made a name for itself quickly — even the New York Times has encourages its readers to try out the sandwich shop on a weekend get-away to the Holy City. Despite being located on King Street, you’ll have to plan to go there because you won’t just walk by. It’s on upper-Upper King, as in: north of Hwy 17. AKA: in the hood. Past Barsa. With that

Closed for Business

Published on July 29, 2012 by in Uncategorized

Cool name, right? OK, we get it: You’re actually rather open for business and this would explain the packed front bar area and frequent occurrence of a line to get in nearly every weekend night. I had patronized the beer-centric bar a handful of times and it had never disappointed. In my mind, this was always a great spot to go grab a beer late-night, often a time when dinner is the last thing on my mind (as all of my calories at that point in the night will be liquid). But alas, we have a blog which forces us

Cocktail Club

Published on May 24, 2012 by in Uncategorized

The Cocktail Club Review Charleston South Carolina King Street Good Drinks Charleston 479 King American/Pub (Happy Hour, Bar) $ How to save some $: They have different Happy Hour specials every day of the week. Thursday was select cocktails for $6 and half-off food from 5 to 7 p.m. It’s pretty hard to stumble upon the Cocktail Club–you have to been looking for it, and, even then, you might overlook it. You enter through a small door just south of The Macintosh; in fact, I had passed it many times thinking it was another entrance to The Macintosh. You’ll have to climb
