    Expensive night out, but certainly worth it. Great food. Attentive (but not overwhelming) service. Apple Crumb Pie dessert was unbelievable. I didn't think I'd be able to eat another bite, but I split the pie with my daughter, to our mutual delight.

    I have been to SNOB many times. It was the first restaurant recommended to me when I first visited Charleston. It is now my favorite place to take visitors. The food, location within the city and the atmosphere give a first time visitor to Charleston a good taste of what the city is all about.

    SNOB was our final destination on a 4 day frenzy in Charleston and although we hit a lot of great restaurants SNOB stands out. The waitress was just right. Not too overly attentive but still friendly made some great suggestions. She kept our meal rolling. We had gone out to brunch in the morning so weren't overly hungry. She suggested splitting the shrimp and grits which was smart since it left room for dessert, triple chocolate cheese cake! I also ordered the beet salad with a local beer. Wonderful, relaxing atmosphere. We sat near the bar by a front window and watched Charleston go by. Can't wait to go back, only next time SNOB will be our first stop and maybe our last.

    I was very pleased with this restaurant. The ambience was excellent. The wait staff was extremely friendly and helpful with selections of a very extensive wine list. We ordered a bottle of champagne which I had had before and it was fairly reasonable in price. I had shrimp and grits for dinner and it was heaven on earth. Extremely big portions! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who is looking for a nice place for dinner. But make reservations early or you will not be able to get a table!!!!

    We had a totally "rookie server". She was clueless. Incapable of opening our bottle of wine and never returned to re-fill our glasses. In fact, the Manager had to come over and open our wine bottle. My wife ordered the Grouper Special and I ordered the Pork Chop. The Pork Chop was very good, but the Grouper and its accompaniments were totally bland. Service was virtually non-existent. We've dined there many times but will not be back.

    This truly was one of our favorites on our long-weekend visit to Savannah/Charleston. A rather unpretentious and energetic restaurant, S.N.O.B. serves up some outstanding victuals with low-country leanings. Among our favorites were the crab soup (not spicy, and a thicker, almost grits-like consistency); the shrimp and grits, and the roasted lamb rack (huge portion). Service was excellent, and restaurant was very accommodating in moving us from what we considered an undesirable table. Definitely worth many return visits on future visits!

    This dining experience was the highlight of our trip to Charleston. The atmosphere was lively and welcoming, the staff was personable, and the food...well, the food was extraordinary. While eating beautiful meals prepared perfectly and uniquely, it was done with items from the garden, fresh and healthy! Our waiter, Joe, couldn't have been more attentive and the assistant manager, Stacey W., was an angel. She is competent, informed, and anticipated our courses. I have been blessed to have dined at fine restaurants around the world and will add this to my favorites.

    We had a great evening at S.N.O.B. Our waitress was personable and knowledgeable down to changing the menu to accommodate my dieting needs. She also brought out a champagne toast in celebration of our anniversary. We have eaten at many restaurants in Charleston and for some reason we never took the opportunity to dine here. We will be back! My salmon was delicious and my husbands Tuna was exceptional. I loved how the beautiful brick kitchen was open. All the staff was working hard to make it a great dining experience.

    On a friend's recommendation we went here for our first night in Charleston. ..we were looking for a place that straddled the line between 'special occasion' and 'comfortable local spot' and I think this description nailed it. I am pretty picky about lighting level...it's a small sweet spot that is warm and darker but not so that you can't see. This had just the right level of ambiance. The server was very affable and professional, her recommendations were on point (carpaccio and duck w seasonal veggies) and the food was quality. I don't think there was anything relevatory about it, but it was executed perfectly for what it was, and that's really what you want from a comfortable local establishment. Will likely come back on my next trip.

    My wife and I had dinner here the second night we were in Charleston, which was an early 10 year anniversary trip. We had a tremendous meal at SNOB, one of the best meals we have had in a long time. We started with the crab cake and fried eggplant/mozzarella/tomato startes which were very good. It got even better from there when we selected our main courses which were the swordfish special (my wife) and the BBQ tuna (my selection). They were both awesome meals (of course, we had to try each others) but I was partial to the BBQ tuna which was a different feel and taste with the BBQ feel but the sauce was very light and didnt have a big overpowering BBQ taste.....just a phenonimal meal. Definitely worth it!

    Met some friends for dinner while in Charleston for an early dinner. We were eating light, so I had a salad and one of the medium plates. I had the Carmelized Pear Salad, it was fantastic! Followed it up with the carpaccio with crostini. Again, fabulous! One of my friends had the swordfish daily special served over curried lentils with yellow squash, her words were, "it was beyond wonderful". We finished up with creme brûlée and the butterscotch pumpkin bread pudding! Scrumptious!

    We had dinner at Slightly North of Broad (SNOB) and were hugely disappointed with the experience. It was too congested, the servers seemed to rush us for selections, and my wife had to send her fish, flounder, back because it was dark, slimy and undercooked. There were a lot of old 8-10 year old posters praising this restaurant but we felt that SNOB is living on their reputation, not their present service and cooking. Our meals and service were far better the night before at Magnolias across the street where we had similar dishes. With the large selection of quality restaurants available in Charleston, we will not be headed back to SNOB.

    My salad, poached pear, was too beautiful to eat, but I couldn't resist. Every bite was delicious. Tuna with a mustard barbecue sauce was outstanding. The tuna was of the highest quality and the preparation such a nice change from the usual Asian style on most menus. Twice baked chocolate cake was heavenly. On top of all of that, the restaurant is beautiful and the service first rate.

    Recommended by our tour guide, this is a place for tourists and groups to gather. Be prepared to wait for your table even with reservations. Energetic noise level, but still possible to enjoy your own conversation unless the next table is rowdy, as ours was, then you have to put up with a lot of noise. Food is very good and interesting.
