Went for afternoon drinks. Glasses dirty and servers very rude. Drinks terrible! Will not return! Very unfriendly place! More of a nightclub!

My sister and I visited their outdoor bar on a very quiet Labor Day evening. Our problem came when we received our bill for 2 Manhattans -$45! We were shocked! We each used credit cards to pay for our individual drink. My sister has an App on her phone that shows what her credit card is charged immediately. It showed... More

I really enjoycoming to republic garden and lounge. This past Sunday we was there for Sunday brunch and it was absolutely amazing. There was a live reggae that was perfect for the atmosphere. The food was great and I would definitely be revisiting Sunday brunch in the future. It was well worth the trip.

I wish I could write a review of this establishment from the inside, but unfortunately my friends and I had a horrible encounter with the doorman/bouncer on Saturday night. I was in Charleston over the weekend with six of my sorority sisters. We are all professional (four doctors, one lawyer, and one non-profit executive) women with families who were excited... More

Save your receipts. and.. No one answers their phone at this business as well. Phone rings and rings, but no answer. you have to go in person or send them... More

We had the best time and the music has always been great drinks are good and not too expensive especially for Charleston the later it gets the more crowded. Sometime the line is down the sidewalk but worth the wait

Another happy accident. Just wanted to sit, rest, have a light (emphasis on light!!) bite and some wine. Perfect! Had the cheese and fruit platter. Very generous, and the cheeses were delicious. Plenty of pita provided. No skimping. Also had the hummus platter. Delicious! Topped off with a lovely bottle of Russian River Chardonnay. Joe was our server and he... More

Heard great band (Sufferin' Moses) here last night outside - a great scene, with fans powerful enough to keep folks comfortable in the July heat. Fun!

Was in republic this past weekend for a bachelor party and I do not think we could have chosen a better spot. The place needs some work but the service my guys and I received, was on point. My guys are hard to deal with sometimes but our waitress killed it. She made sure everyone had a drink at all... More
