We came here on a recommendation from friends that they serve Brunch. It is located at a Golf Resort-Housing area of Lady's Island. Agree with other reviews here as nothing spectacular and has the feeling of a golf club "grab a burger and beer" feel vs. a nice pub and grill. I would say it is "ok" for families especially...

We (group of 5) waited at the podium for almost 20 minutes for someone to seat us. There were no other customers waiting to be seated. When someone finally came to seat us, we then had to wait for her to push 2 tables together and reset the table. Menus were DIRTY, stained with food and drink, definitely not appealing.... More

First visit in about 6 months. Definitely a downer with new staff that is ill trained and unfriendly as well as unfriendly and uninterested.. Highly advise this decaying establishment be placed on the AVOID list.

It started with an overpriced wine tasting and ended with cold prime rib served by a disinterested server that charged us for more drinks than we had. We will not return.

Outstanding food and service. We visit annually and always enjoy the food and friendly service. Low country South Carolina hospitality never goes out of style.
