I have been to the griffin twice in the past year, the first time left a bad taste in my mouth so I reluctantly returned only to be proven right with my initial reaction. On my first visit I experienced a "seasoned" server who had probably been in the business too long and had the attitude to match. I let... More

We were told by several people that if you wanted fish and chips, this was the place to go. I had the fried shrimp basket ($9.99) and my wife had the fish and chips ($10.99). They both had a reasonable amount of fish/shrimp and fries. Batter was lite and not over fried. Would go back again

This was one of the more reasonable priced places we visited. You spend most of the money eating. However, the food was great. Living... More

This old fashioned historic pub, has great food and isn't your typical Charleston expensive. A large soup and salad meal for me cost only 12$. It's a must stop place if you're only here for a few days.

This was located right next door to our hotel & we went for dinner one night & drinks the other. If you go for dinner we highly recommend the fish & chips they were delicious
