This place is classic, but it not located amongst the other usual restaurant/tavern locales. Before Moe's was Moe's, it was a time tested local favorite called Jimmy Dengates. It was located in an area that was not the greatest so you even had to have a key to get in. Well, the place is still a favorite, but now the neighborhood is up and coming.....no key. Still unique on the inside with original, well worn, wood floors, this place picked up where Dengates left off. Cold beer, great food, sports on the TV's, and live music on occasion. Menu items are reasonably priced, and the service is good. Burgers (1/2 price on Tuesday), wraps, salads, and appetisers include Black and Blue burger with blue cheese, and Buffalo wrap. Must try sides include hand cut chips, tasty french fries, or onion rings. The crab cake sandwich is a winner in my book.
Want to try an off the beaten path local favorite that is becoming a visitor favorite too, go to upper Rutledge Avenue near Hampton Park and look for the black awning on an unpretentious building. Grab a parking spot on the street ,find a table or bar stool, and satisfy your itch for food and fun.

Good food and service in a simple bar, dare I say a dive bar. Attentive staff with excellent choice of beer.

Only criticism is the appetisers (poppers and tenders for us) were frozen type rather than home made. I always think this is a little lazy when thjings are so simple to make and taste so much better.

This was our stop for post-race burgers after the CRBR. It was good food, for a bar, but not gourmet by any standard. Burger was a bit on the greasy side and the balance of blackend and blue was way off. Same for the other two ordered in our party.
I don't want to be too harsh since this is a bar and not a "Burger Joint". Service was great for a packed house bar. It was loud, but again its a bar.
If you are looking for a bar with decent food, beer selection and locals, Moe's is a great option. If you are looking for the "best" burger, look elsewhere.

Brunch was fun but a little loud. Pancakes, étouffée, omelets, sausage biscuits and gravy. Bar atmosphere was very casual.

This place is about half a block from the harbor in downtown Charleston. It has a sports bar atmosphere with music playing in the background. It would be a great place to catch a football game or March Madness with wall to wall big screen tv's. Our food was good and a good price considering the location, as other restaurants here are a little pricey. My only complaint were the fries were cold when they brought our food. I am sure if we had complained they would have taken care of us, as we had an excellent waitress. However, we were not real hungry and didn't need to eat many of the fries. The rest of the food was delivered exactly as ordered and was very tasty. The next time we visit Charleston we will stop back in.
