    Third day having a light lunch so as not to fall asleep during work conference at the Francis Marion Hotel. Being from Hawai’i, the time difference makes this difficult and it was really nice to have a comfortable friendly place to eat during the break. Today’s hostess was exceptionally kind and welcoming. Mahalo!

    I went for Brunch. The portions are huge but the taste was so-so. I think maybe they were short staffed that day, but the service was a little slow when we first got there. My friend said the mimosa was really great though. I would recommend to a friend if they were on King St, but there are a few other places that are just as good or better as well.

    A simple atmosphere, friendly wait staff and good food. What else do you need? It was a little pricey but Charleston is pricey so by comparison, not out of range of anywhere else. I was surprised that it closed at 9 on a Saturday, but it's also clear that the action in the city was more in the French Quarter than this part of downtown. Go for the food, you won't be disappointed.

    No one but our waitress was nice to us. When we arrived, hostess kept walking by us. She never spoke. Had reservations. Don't know if it mattered. We were seated right beside the door. Everyone waiting for a table was all around us, holding the door open letting in the hot air. Fried steak w biscuit was not good. Husband loved the french toast.

    Dinner was just ok tonight. The she crab soup was very disappointing and the fried chicken was abundant but not as tasty as I would have thought. Tomato pie was very good as was the fried pork chop. Service was friendly and very good. Not sure I'd return

    Lacking cocktail sauce for fish. Food good but simple for the cost. Bathroom was nasty. Service was good. Not the restaurant’s fault but parking in area was hellacious. Noise level a was low and great for conversation. Open table was a problem for adding a person to our table. I had to finally call and leave message and restaurant took care of it.
