Their highly touted fish and chips were everything they said they were. The fish was flakey thick and delicious. Atmosphere was a little dirty but it's intentional.

Very close to waterfront park.

Our party of two had the chicken philly steak sandwich and a big plate of grand nachos. Both were delicious

We had two IPA beers and they were reasonably priced too

Fun bar setting with family friendly seating and a small bar

Glad we found it on trip advisor with good reviews

Crazy atmosphere of thousands of dollar bills stapled to every conceivable wall and ceiling space.

Good drinks, good beer variety. Our server looked like he stepped off of a Lord of the Rings movie set. He helpfully pointed out the beer I ordered was served in a can and so I was able to change to a draught pilsner instead.

Our friends were looking for a dark Irish bar, not to be mistaken for Irish pub and we found it. Unlike anywhere we've been in Charleston.

We didn't eat here but I saw some bar food served.

I can't imagine this place on St. Paddy's Day.

And not afraid to be called a dive bar. Bring your dollar bills.

Stumbled across this bar and liked the atmosphere. First visit wait staff brought us beer menus and then forgot about us so we left (we were seated at a back tablel
Returned the next day and sat at the bar.
Beers were good and we both had the infamous Fish 'n Chips-they lived up to all the hype. Side of cole slaw could have been more than 3 bites. Wait staff, bartender not the most efficient and spent more time chatting with employees than tending to customers.
Good locale for CHS.

We tried this place our last night in Charleston and wish we had sooner. The fish and chips are some of the best and the beer selection was great. A must try if your in the area.
