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...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...More
