I can say that I fairly enjoyed the Southend Brewery. Our service wasn't great but it wasn't bad. Being that it was our first time there we felt as though the waiter didn't do a great job of recommending options or telling us the favorites...More

The brisket here is awesome, as well as the burgers. They also make pretty good wood fired pizza's. Their Pinto beans are great with a little kick. Unique old Charleston Building as are many in the area

They Use their beer for pizza crust, and it is delicious. Burgers and veggie burgers are great! Awesome fried fries. Never had a bad meal here over many visits over the years. One place I always eat at every time I'm in Charleston.

Came by after a harbor tour for lunch. A number of the beers on the list were unavailable due to a change in ownership that was occurring. Nothing remarkable about the experience, we didn't eat most of the food, but the server didn't seem to...More

A great place for large families or groups of beer-drinking men, this eatery is perfectly located, reasonably priced, beautifully built and decorated, and offers wonderful service. The only downside is the average food. I had a burger and fries and my wife had a salad....both...More
