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

I was sceptical when I read reviews about this being the place for fish and chips in charleston. The Griffin is a bar with real character! Great beer selection & friendly bar staff! Don't forget to decorate your dollar!

Great little hole in the wall. the fish and chips were as good as advertised. If the service had been more open/welcoming, it would have earned a 5.

No trip to downtown Charleston is complete without a stop at The Griffin for a cold beverage and snacks or lunch. A large selection of beers and the food is good. Check out all the $ bills hanging everywhere. Fun and friendly bar.
