Bay Street Biergarten Ratings and Reviews
Appetizers very pricey for what you get. Food was excellent. Server was not really attentive. Came and handed us bill before asking if there was anything we would like. I for one wanted something else to drink. We had to ask her her name. It just felt uncomfortable. Put a damper on an otherwise nice meal.
We had reservations asked for a table with beer dispensers their were 3 open they wouldn't let us sit there because we weren't a party of 6 or more. We were 4 adults who drink beer. They sat a family with 3 small children they never used the in table beer dispensers we complained to waitress who said sorry and it was management policy and asked the host when we fist sat. They definitely have management issues. They actually place is very nice with a great outdoor set up. I would not go here again but if I could do it all over again I would of sat outside even though it was super hot and sat at cool outside bar.
Good portions. Original choices. Best hot pretzel - soft and chewy, but crusty on the outside, with great taste of beer and yeast. Yummy fried pimento cheese with hot bacon jam too!
Had live music, and they were very talented, but it was way too loud for dining, and we could barely hear each other.
Out waitress had too many tables and it took her a good while to get back to us, for additional drinks, etc. Apparently everyone sat in her section all at once , and another server should have assisted.
Good food but the name "biergarten" implies German cuisine. There may be some influence but it is more American than German which was somewhat disappointing. I found it to be too loud to enjoy conversation. However, the locals really seemed to enjoy it. I ordered the schnitzel with spaetzle rather than potatoes. The flavor was good but had a bit too much breading. The service was very good. Friendly staff and quick.
I had been here a few times for dinner, drinks, and watching sports, and decided to try brunch. I loved that they offer brunch reservations, as not everywhere in Charleston does. The food was delicious! We got the chicken and waffles and the biscuits and gravy. It may not sound monumental, but the way they prepare both was unique and super tasty! I also got a side biscuit, and have to say their berry vodka jam is amazing! The portions were good for us, but if you're not a 5'1" runner and a man whose stomach has been permanently shrunk by high school wrestling, the portions may not be big enough for you.
Was my first visit. Nobody took the time to explain the tap system or how the beer cards work. I ordered the charcuterie plate and the manager just set it down and never explained what the meat or cheeses were.
Wife had a burger. Was cooked perfectly, fries were good
I had the Pork Schnitzel sandwich. Pork was good but way too much mustard. Potato salad wasn't the best, I'd skip it.
A really nice Biergarten that is more modern/unique than traditional. One of my favorite menu items was the pretzel bombs (stuffed with cheese & brat). My husbands side of Brussels was much better than my spatzle which was more of a cheese soup. The beer list was great and they had lots of local beers and a few German beers. The outdoor space looked incredible but it was too cold for us to hang out. I would definitely head back again next time I'm in town.
We went here for dinner with friends in town for the weekend. The menu was a little limited and some things were not labeled clearly. I ordered the catfish and a friend ordered the chicken and we were not aware that both were sandwiches. My husband and other friend ordered the veal schnitzel. They said it was good, but way too much fried breading on the veal and they both peeled a lot of it off. Our waitress was very personable and attentive. Four of us split one order of German chocolate cake (the ONLY dessert offered), and we couldn't finish it! Not a bad place; not sure if I would hurry to go back.
I thought I was going to get typical bar food but I couldn't be more wrong. They took it to a whole new level. The pulled pork nachos were superb! I had a mouth watering steak with red potato cake that I'd eat again and again. The wife had duck and grits. I hate grits but have to say I did have 4 tablespoons and would have eaten more if there was anything left. The chocolate german cake was delicious. I will be back again & again!
The food here is amazing. The collard greens side dish is especially yum. I would also recommend the Buffalo chicken sandwich. It is more of a sports bar atmosphere, but they could have asked the young man who kept occasionally shouting and cursing loudly at his favorite team to cool it. Otherwise it was a great experience.
We visited Bay Street Biergarden for brunch and really enjoyed it. Our service was a little slow (I think they were understaffed) but our food was hot and delicious when it came out. I would go back for brunch, but I don't think it's the type of restaurant to visit if you have anywhere else to be anytime soon. It's not quick. I really enjoyed my quinoa and sweet potato salad and the pretzels are good too.
We were a party of 6 on an extremely busy later afternoon (Oktoberfest and a large private party going on at the same time). We were seated promptly and got a first round of beers within about 10 minutes. This is not fine dining, but the appetizers were fun, and delicious and came hot, had not been sitting around. We shared about 8 different ones, and everything was good. Loved the "Pretzel Bombs!"
Really great beer selections.
