Dinner was disappointing. Very limited menu! I had the meatloaf; it was ok but kind of dry. I tasted the shrimp it was excellent! The last issue i have is the noise coming from the milkshake blender. When it was running, it was so loud you couldn’t talk. Overall an ok experience but not great.
Took us an hour to get our food. Food was greasy and restaurant was so noisy, it was tough to have a conversation with the person next to you. Definitely not going back.
Great diner. Thank you.
We’ve read about BLD and the awesome chef inspired dishes. We love to eat, especially in Charleston, and BLD gave even the best Charleston restaurant a run for its money. My husband had Chicken and Waffles and said the taste combination is genius. Somebody knows what they are doing. I had Cobb salad and added Fried Chicken. All the ingredients were fresh and just the perfect blend with the exact amount of Buttermilk dressing added. Can’t wait to return and try one of the Benedict’s.
Our server, Matt, was very good at explaining the many choices and provided excellent service.
We will definitely return soon!
Great service and food!
Very friendly diner, great food, owner and staff listen to customers. Always changing to improve dining experience.
Excellent service and busy atmosphere. Scrambled eggs, bacon, mini biscuits are delicious! Patty melt sandwich would have been perfect but burger was overcooked and dry. Loved the marble bread.
Loved it! The service was outstanding.
Cute place. The food was filling and very good. We requested to sit outside due to the unpleasant smell. (It was a combination of grease and industrial cleaner....not good.)
We love the restaurant and food. Good service! Only problem is noise level! Thanks
I reserved an outdoor table but after waiting outside for my friend, I decided the weather was too hot and asked to sit inside instead. The hostesses and outside waitress quickly and cheerfully accommodated my request, and on top of that, our waiter provided exceptional service. My friend ordered a BLT without mayo and the waiter was thoughtful to bring an unexpected side of fries dip just in case she wanted to try a different sauce. As always, our food was yummy and great quality; we especially enjoyed the cucumber salad side for the first time.
The food was great as always. Server was very friendly and attentive especially since we had three young children with us. Fried chicken is second to none. A good drink selection. Soda pop for the kids that doesn’t contain high fructose corn syrup. Our leftovers were taken home in a cardboard container and a brown paper bag which I prefer over plastic and styrofoam. We will continue to dine here.
Bld is the best!! We love it here. Always something good for all!
Our server was a delight! The food was incredible and always love to dine home in Forest Acres!
The food was great. When we first got there they tried to sit us at the bar for Mothers Day. It took some complaining, but the owner stepped in (and some of the wait staff) and found a way for us to have a table. Then they were extremely focused on us having a great experience. The service was excellent and we had the waffle, the two eggs breakfast, and a cobb salad and all were fantastic.
Great place to celebrate Mother’s Day. The brunch menu was fantastic and well thought out. First time there but will be back soon.
Food was delicious even though there was an unexpected shorter menu for Mother’s Day. We had dinner after USC graduation .. they took us earlier after I called directly and accommodated more of our guests. That combined with the food made for a great evening. Chicken and waffle was very good as was the meatloaf. Thank you!
I appreciate your tip suggestions being based on the food cost -- not including tax.
If you have a special “grit” supplier why embarrass them? Grits were lacking...no salt, pepper, and watery. Cmon...add some cream, salt, and pepper! However, the topping for the shrimp and grits were good. Hate to eat at a southern restaurant that serves grits lacking their heritage .
Nikiya made the best Bloody Mary!! And of course the French toast was as delicious as always. Highly recommend you check this place out.
Good restaurant, great food, shrimp burger was different, glad I tried it. The noise level was loud. There were quite a bit of groups there.
The tables were too close together and very noisy waitress was good food was ok
I can not say enough good things about BLD! Sean the owner, the Chef and staff are incredible! We eat here at least twice a week. I have a unusual corn allergy and for my birthday they went out of their way to created a special meal and cake! Thanks again for always providing great service and excellent meals!
Food was excellent and a little different than what you would expect for breakfast but in a very positive way.
Would definitely recommend.
Amazing, as usual! The staff is always great, and the food is to die for. Can’t go wrong.
A diner with fresh and flavorful. We ate outside. The patty melt was delish and my salad topped with grilled salmon was modified for gluten-free and lactose free. The BLD Diner was a great neighborhood find!! Enjoy!!
Service was superb. Great food and ambiance. Thrilled to have BLD in our
The food was not great. Very bland. The service was slow. And very pricey for what they offered. Bill was 60$ for 1 lunch 1 dinner and 2 kids meals. Do not recommend!
First time at BLD. Had heard mixed reviews. Was absolutely outstanding. Party of 5 and everyone loved what they ordered. Will definitely make a return visit.
My husband and I visited from out of town and decided to try BLD for dinner. I’m glad we chose it! It was a great experience for us. We had the fried chicken dinner and shrimp and grits. Very satisfying and full of flavor. We also shared the spicy boiled peanuts which were delicious as well. Oh, my favorite was the collard greens! Compliments to the chef and staff. We’ll be sure to tell our family and friends. :)
Everything was great service-wise and food-wise - the only issue was that they were out of a lot of things our table tried to order. I understand that being the case with some things on the menu, but being out of biscuits, etc. when that’s a signature item in a lot of dishes is kind of hard to work around for customers and waitstaff. Otherwise the food was great and the service was great too!
I love BLD Diner. I always get the best service and you can tell that they really care about their customers and their food. It’s always top quality. Whether for brunch, lunch, or dinner it’s always worth going. From comfort food to a new spin on your favorite, there is something for everyone.
Went for Valentine's Day! Food was amazing!! Loved it! Hope they add Salmon to their regular menu! Can't wait to return!!
Great food. A bit expensive for essentially burgers and hot sandwiches, but the portions are pretty big. The BLTD was awesome, and my husband enjoyed his burger. It was actually fairly slow, and we were in and out within an hour. Will definitely return!
I had the shrimp burger and it was delicious. I thought the prices were high for the menu and I’ve heard the same from other people who have eaten at your restaurant. I will eat there again.
