Large selection of beers here; make no mistake. Fortunately it was easy to make up my mind: I simply ordered the beer that I used to drink when I was stationed in Germany back in the day. Holding that bottle of Weihenstephaner and enjoying that true Bavarian flavor brought me back many years. Um um good. Thanks for having that... More

I didn't know Gene's did brunch!! This place is fabulous!!! Got the crawfish omelette and the house Bloody Mary. I was so impressed by the quality of the food. This was always one of my favorite bars but now it is my new go to for brunch!

Oh my goodness, those Buffayaki Chicken Wings are addictive - wings perfectly fried and then tossed in a buffalo/teriyaki sauce blend. Really?! SO good. And I need a weekly fix of those Cheese Fries. I love the appetizers at Gene's...and my boyfriend loves the craft beer! Yes, you should definitely go...tonight.

Parking is tight but worth a walk. They have good bar food and a fantastic selection of beer. If your into historic bars don`t miss it.

I had the back and blue burger and it was very good. My husband is a chef and said its one of the best burgers he's had in a long time! And we love the dive bar atmosphere and all the games! Pool, darts, shuffle board and golden tee!

The beer selection for Charleston in this area is alright, food is of bar quality, and, as you can see from the picture of the bathroom, this place is not really kid friendly. Everything is okay, but with the other options in this area, it's a hard sell to explain why anyone would choose this over the myriad other other... More

Sit at the bar ,play pool, or watch sports on TV. Reminds me of the neighborhood bars I'd frequent as a young adult on Long Island. The bartenders are very knowledgeable, with great suggestions if you give them a hint about what you like. Super selection of craft brews.

We went to the neighborhood happy hour from 5:30 til 8 pm. For Happy Hour, drafts are $1 off and appetizers are $2 off. There is a good selection of craft brews on draft. The appetizer menu is pretty good with simple things like loaded fries to crawdads. We tried the Chicken quesadillas which were delicious. The menu also has... More

Perfect little locals bar located in Avondale part of Charleston. Only have a few TV's but that's the point. Makes you have conversation with people. One of the oldest bars with the most brews in Charleston. Cool old school hipster feel. They have boards games and some arcade and pool tables. Check it out for a relaxed spot with great... More

A decent local watering hole that lacks the pretentiousness that is sometimes Charleston. The food is ok, but the staff and drinks are usually right on.
