Found this place randomly walking around Charleston with my brother and father. It's beautiful inside and out. Food was great and big portions, bring your appetite.

This place had the best Southern food that we had in Charleston! Forget the overhyped places with lines outside - especially that disappointing Jestine's - and head for the brewery. The artichoke dip and crab cakes were to die for. Service was perfect too!

I have to say, I was disappointed in the food here. The barbecue was completely mediocre and so was the service. The building is a cool building, and it is centrally located. There are much better options for great barbecue in downtown Charleston!

We split a pulled pork platter and a burger- they've got huge serving sizes. In fact, we couldn't even finish all the food they set in front of us! Their barbecue sauce tasted awesome and the meat was well-cooked and tender. Also, they have the...More

Our first meal in Charleston was a good start. GOod fried Green Tomatoes with a chow chow salsa - delicious! Super sweet shrimp burger was light and delicious and my husband enjoyed his brisket sandwich. Great beer selections, though we were not ready to drink...More
