We went to dinner on Monday night for the hamburger special. The burger and fries were excellent, and it is a terrific value. Even though it was packed, we were seated promptly (make a reservation), and the service was very good.

All my wife wanted to eat was a cheeseburger from here for her birthday. One of the best in Charleston! Our server was attentive and the food came out quick.

The food and service were great. Made a reservation, but really didn’t need it for 5:30. The place did fill up quickly around 6, so take advantage of Open Table. Only down fall, was a lot of flies inside.

In the past we enjoyed RCC: great cheeseburgers, fish tacos and chocolate milkshakes. Sunday, August 12 was not enjoyable. The server was lovely but overly busy. Food was good but arrived in two stages
leaving us waiting for several minutes for the final meal. And it was HOT in our booth in the bar. The server apologized and blamed it on lack of insultation. Goodness.

Service was fantastic. Torry was great. Food was wonderful as always. But the whole restaurant was way too hot. One patio flap was blowing open allowing 90+ temperatures to flow through the restaurant. I’m pretty sure Rutledge Cab is off our list on days it’s above 85 or so.

Every entree had issues. Not enough fried chicken in fried chicken salad and not enough salad dressing in fried chicken salad. The wedge salad was miniscule. The flounder sandwich was greasy (how about a grilled flounder sandwich). Jordan was an excellent waitress.

My Dad can be tough to please - but not today. The food was awesome and our server was excellent. I asked our server for help deciding between two entrees and she was right - the fish tacos are some of the embestnive had here in Charleston. Highly recommend!

We decided to eat a late lunch downtown today and Rutledge Cab was just what we needed. The food was great and the service was friendly and timely. I always appreciate a recommendation of the server’s personal favorite dishes and we were not disappointed today. Not our first time and certainly not our last. This made for a nice relaxed Sunday afternoon.

Order was mixed up with someone else’s
Had to find our waitress to get order corrected
Had to ask for water to be refilled and had no ice in water to keep it cold
Ordered well done and got rare burger
Got someone else’s ticket to pay
I go to Rutledge a lot just wanted to bring it to your attention to correct service

As expected (based on previous trips). Looking forward to returning for more dishes. Grilled peppers app. is very good and almost worth the trip. Burgers were good as all reported at our table.

Only recommendation...would not recommend the Shrimp Po Boy unless they upgrade to fresh, or at least larger shrimp, as these were the baby shrimp that appeared to be "from a can." Especially in a town that has shrimp boats a couple miles away!

Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."

This place was an amazing meal. Great prices, great portions, super staff. OMG the poutine was even better than we hoped. The Pastrami was like the best sandwich I have had in my life- not exaggerating and my friend’s BLT with candied pepper bacon and mac and cheese were soooo good. You must visit! No Bill Murray sighting sadly- but one can hope in the future;) hehe

Food was quality and delicious. Service was suburb... only issue was that it was a bit warm in the building for the middle of July. That being said, highly recommend the cab company and I will definitely return. I look forward to trying different burgers on $5 Mondays!
