Best Fish and Chips in Charleston! I work in Charleston every month and return to this quaint old bar again and again! A staple on the harbor!

Stopped in for a drink and was very surprised to see dollar bills on the walls, ceiling, fans, you name it, it had someone's bill with their name on it. Friendly service and unique atmosphere. Only had beer so can't comment on the food.

I had a wonderful salad and my husband had the fish and chips. Both were very reasonably priced. Beer selection was excellent! Service was outstanding. We just came across this little gem and enjoyed it immensely.

a nice pub near the park, the walls and ceiling are covered with old dollar bills that people have written on and stapled into place. The beer is cold and cheap and the fish and chips are great!

We stopped in to the Griffon for a beer and found it to be a great spot to watch sports, have a drink and enjoy some pub food. Though we didn't actually eat here, the food coming out of the kitchen looked very good.

We walked in for dinner and a beer on a busy Saturday evening. We had three staff checking on us from order to receiving the check. They were a little unorganized but very friendly. The bar food was decent and the beer selection was good.

If your cup of tea is cheap drafts and good food in a real pub then you may like Griffon. It’s got all the effects, currency stapled to every surface in the place, a darts area, bar and a dozen or so tables. The food...More

We were walking around Charleston and found this place. The staff was very friendly. Many local beers. I had a Philly cheesesteak, which was respectable and my husband had a tasty brisket sandwich.
